Grown ups need snow days too

Even though I've lived in this northern state all my life, every year the snow comes as an unpleasant surprise. You'll find that here. People can always chat about the weather inevitably sucking. "Ohh, can you believe this snow? Oh I know, it's awful." Snow isn't so bad when you're a kid 'cause it's like, not your problem. Then you grow up and find yourself years later still listening to the radio in anxious anticipation of a snow day, but then the reality smacks you in the face that "Shit, I still have to go to work in this crap. No fucking fair!"

So yeah, feeling sort of negative lately. Okay really negative. Like you don't even want to know. Is it me or is the feeling mutual? Is this the reason for the decrease in blogging out there? I mean, I know I haven't been that great about updating myself, but it's felt like lately there's been just a big ol' fart rolling through the blogosphere causing people to close up shop. (Not that I don't appreciate all you peeps who are still around, though!) It's just not quite the jumpin jivin place it used to be. What gives? And how come all the people who have switched to the Beta version just get quiet and don't talk about it? What are they holding over you? Is the first rule of Blogger Beta that you don't talk about Blogger Beta? What kind of crap is that? Sure, maybe I'm just jealous. Maybe I just missed the boat. Maybe I don't even want to be included. Maybe I should just go back home where it's warm and quiet and curl up with my blankey and my Jenna Jameson book, drink coffee and not think about things. It's cold here and I really should've dried my hair this morning.

Dude, what's up with beta? It's like fight club or something.

I hate snow.

I hate Jenna Jameson, too.

Beck said...

Oh, and Beta.

Haha, I was thinking of going to the dark side and joining beta. The ads are so seductive.

I really think that everyone in America is just suffering from SAD - seasonal affective disorder. Winter means more depression.

I find that I sleep a lot more in the fall and winter. It's not even cold here yet, but it's already getting dark so early. By the time I get home from work, my body thinks it's time to sleep. I hate this! I have no energy.

I'm having a hell of a time keeping up my blogging. You're right...Everyone else is too. I don't know what's going on, but I don't have much to say lately. I'm sure it will change. Everything goes in cycles.

Just say no to Beta. Typepad is the way to go..

I just have a cold. And aging grandparents. and an insecure mother who requires constant validation. I've never read Jenna Jameson tho I've heard rumors.
Sit back and have a cup of tea and some shortbread with me.

Don't ask me about Beta, I still haven't figured out how to deal with YouTube.

As far as not updating: I don't know, but I've noticed it too (myself included). I'm stuck in a general malaise, "what's the point" kind of mood lately. Bah.

Because I don't feel like I've been saying it enough lately: you commenting peeps are the coolest.

And... notice how there's not one comment from a beta user? Hmmm....
