Addicted to Blogs

In case you haven’t heard, blogging is pretty popular right now. Yep, you heard it from me first. Of course, I never thought I would have a blog of my own. Not one that was regularly updated anyway . Who has the time these days? Well, apparently a lot of people do!

I have been checking out book blogs or blogs about books and there are just so many wonderful ones out there. My book group doesn’t seem to have any problems coming up with great suggestions, but I am always looking for the “best book of all time” so having access to these additional resources is just great!

The only problem is that now that I have so many favorites, I find myself reading more online material than the old fashioned printed know.. what we old folks call BOOKS. This one site sent me a book so I could join an online discussion. I am reading that book now and then another site offered to send me a book as well and now I have so many books that I am back to having no time to read. It’s a vicious cycle.

If you enjoy reading and want to take a look as what others are reading, check out these great blogs:

Do I Have Stupid Written On My Forehead?

I am trying to resolve an issue here at work and this “person” ( I use the word loosely), continues to skate around the issue and talk down to me as if I don’t know what I am talking about. Don’t you love that? I know perfectly well what I am talking about and am “in the know” quite often and if I don’t have a clue what I am talking about I surely would not advertise it.

So we had a little, verbal altercation.. yeah, that’s what it was. I am not a “sit and bite my tongue” kind of gal. Those that know me will firmly agree. People that resort to talking down to people usually have a very low self esteem and that is what I believe in this case. I like to tilt my head from side to side while this other person is talking, to mimic the UTTER confusion that MUST be going through my mind as I am simply not bright enough to comprehend what is being said to me. Then, when least expected, I go off. I mean, OFF.

Now I am all crabby and that is what bothers me the most. I think a trip to REI is in order. For some reason that store always puts me in a good mood. I think it is the anticipation or expectation of going somewhere..anywhere to get away from this place. All the backpacks, the hiking maps.. makes me want to drop whatever I am doing and go on a walkabout.

One hour later.. I went to REI and bought a new SIGG water bottle. You know.. “Go Green!”. Sometimes a small purchase perks you up. I feel perky now.
