Alright, here goes nothing, right?
You know, I stayed awake staring at the backside of my eyelids for hours last night (and consequently did not go into work today, though I probably should have) thinking about this blog.
Well... not THIS blog, as it didn't exist. But the *idea* of this blog. I'd made one months and months ago, about my cats, and didn't do much with it.
Don't get me wrong, they're hysterical, and all 3 of my readers thought I was really funny, but there's only so much you can blog about your cats before you either become a crazy-cat-lady, or you poke your eyes out with a catnip mouse.
Also, quite honestly, I needed a place to vent. I love Wisconsin so very much, but I haven't made a huge number of friends so far, and I don't have many places where I feel it's safe to just let the crazy all hang out. The internet is AMAZING for that. I mean, it's like Wonderland: We're all mad down here.
So, I'm trying to tell myself that I will find my "Voice" eventually, and not worry about it for a bit. So I think I'll just post random crap for a while. Talk about my cats. Oh god, there I go again with the crazy cat lady stuff.
Alright, I'll just get it over with and link to the older blog (secretly I thought I was damned funny in it). http://crazyshitmycatswanttoeat.blogspot.com/
If you don't think I'm funny, just lie to me. It's better that way.
Or don't read my blog at all I suppose... That's probably how it should work. Meh.
OH! Maybe a bit of background, hmm? I'm a mom of one very stubborn teen boy, who spends the Summers and holidays with me. I'm an enthusiastic amateur photographer, and I work at a small company printing photos in their Film and Digital Lab. I also do stupid amounts of bookkeeping to help out their actual Bookkeeper, who is a super nice lady, so I pretend I enjoy it. I'm thinking about going back to school for a degree in Dental Hygiene though, since I'm weirdly obsessed with teeth, and their cleanliness. It might be a good fit! Or not! I have no idea!
I have all kinds of weird habits, most of which, it seems, are amusing to people. My husband says I'm "derpy". Which he uses to mean I'm silly, and goofy; sometimes intentionally, but mostly not.
I read a lot, mostly fantasy and sci-fi, but I enjoy most things. I'm currently reading many classics because I got a Kindle for Xmas, and they have all of the classics that have become public domain available for free download.
Bored yet? Just checking.
Well, it's midnight now, and I really DO have to go in to work tomorrow, as I have things that are due by Monday. But I enjoyed our chat (or is it just a monologue, since I'm really only talking to myself right now?) and I hope we get to know each other better.
PS because I am a crazy cat lady, and I can't help myself here's a video of my cat Seven-of-Nine grooming my husband.
