Word up, peeps

I haven't been blogging lately because, really, I haven't had that much I've wanted to say. I go through phases where I'm typing and chatting fool. And then, I'm just silent for a bit.

When I'm in that strange period of Noodles' quiet time, I tend to get extra introspective and philosophical. Which, I guess is weird because you'd think at times like that, I'd WANT to be writing down my thoughts.

So, since I'm still not feeling too chatty, I thought I'd share the topics I've been ruminating on lately....

_ Am I egocentric? Do I talk about myself? Does thinking I'm egocentric prove the fact that I AM egocentric?

_ I haven't done real grocery shopping in more than a month. I REALLY need to go soon because running to neighborhood convenience store for milk, eggs and butter is not the most cost-effective venture.

_ How long do I have to send birthday thank you notes? Because, er, I turned 28 and haven't written them yet. Oops?

_ I've ordered a ton of fabric lately, but can't bring myself to cut into it. In fact, outside of making headbands, I haven't sewed much at all lately. Bummer.

_ See how many points have started with "I" or have "I" in the first few words. See point 1.

_ Is there a way to teach Macy Mutt to not bark at doorbells on TV? Bad enough she goes apeshit whenever anyone is in our landing.

_ Is anyone else oddly addicted to NCIS? Who is, you know, under the age of 55? And if not, what the HELL is wrong with me?

My and my kids are all totally attracted to NCIS. And yes, I am under the age of 55, and my kids are 17, 15, & 13. If it's on, we can't stop watching it.

You are fabulous. And it is your blog, so you can talk about yourself if you want to :)

I miss you! And take it from me: getting yourself out of the mini-mart habit and back into the grocery store is quite worth it. I was burnin' serious green on vitamin water and lean cuisine.

I've thought about point No. 1 with myself and here's what I've come up with: If people think you're egocentric on your blog, they won't read it. So you don't have to worry about those people. Those of us who read want to hear about you.

So carry on.

I'm pretty sure that really egocentric people wouldn't even notice, you know? So I think you're fine. :)

I just discovered your blog....and after waking up my dog with my explosive laughter....already think we are living quasi-parallel lives. I, too, enjoy swearing much more than the normal human, i have experienced the hilly hell that is an endurance athletic event (mine was a walking half-marathon in San Francisco. WTF?!) -- AND the feeling of being part of something bigger than myself. I also take blog-sabbaticals when I get introspective, buy fabric but struggle with actually hacking into it, have a dog who barks at random shit on the tv, and have recently become clinically-addicted to NCIS. (I don't know whether it's the workplace violence, aka head thumping, or Abby's quirky quirkiness....but I LoVe it!!)

And I've only been reading your blog for about 5 minutes!!

I know you probably want to report me to BlogStalkers, but I promise I'm harmless. Really! Come visit my blog, and you'll see what I'm talking about!
