Famous relatives and abandoned blogs

Okay, okay.  I accept that what happened to me yesterday morning was a panic attack, and I’ll call the doctor in the morning.

TV, anyone?

I love the theme song for Treme (on HBO).  John and I haven’t decided if we want to keep watching it, but we had to watch the first two episodes.  Required viewing in this family.  Why?  Check out the concierge in the second episode.  She’s related to ME!  How cool is that?  The concierge in question (who Steve Zahn waved at!) is my soon-to-be-famous sister-in-law.  So, you know, kind of related to me.  Close enough.

Candy, I thought you were great.  Even though we were watching for you, we were caught by surprise when you did appear, and then there was much squealing and pausing and rewinding and rewatching.  (I’ll take credit for most, if not all, of the squealing.)  We couldn’t possibly delete the episode from our DVR, of course.  We’ll have to show it to everyone who comes over.  And we started with Jess on Saturday night.  So for the next…I don’t know how long, everyone who enters the house will have to watch Candy’s scene in Treme.  🙂  You think I’m kidding?  Just wait.

Go visit Curiosity. She’s listing her priorities for life (and making fun of Victoria’s Secret models).  Who can resist?

You know what bugs me?  (In a little way, not a big way.)  Finding a blog I like, and then realizing they don’t update every day.  And it’s not just that they don’t update every day (’cause that’s okay.  People are allowed to lead busy lives and do other things and NOT update the blog every single day.  Yes, you have my permission.), but then they don’t update every few days, and then it’s been a week, and then two months.  It’s so disappointing!  I bookmarked you because I liked you!  I liked to read you!  And then you abandoned me.  How could you?  *sob*  (Mom, I’m not talking about you, since I talk to you every day, and you tell me the things you would blog about.  I feel up to date on you.  But if I didn’t actually know you, and I found your blog some other way, then yes, I’d be talking about you.  (Was that too harsh?  I didn’t mean to be harsh.))  I have five or six blogs bookmarked that fall in this category, and since I already don’t have the time read all the blogs I bookmark (but I really want to), I may have to clear those few out.


  1. RSS feeds! They’re great because you get notified when people update – and you kinda forget if they don’t post in a while! (I follow 66 blogs, so I would be lost if I had to keep track of them myself. =)

  2. Have I told you lately that you are wonderful for my self-esteem?

    I have a few of those dormant sites in my Google Reader. I keep hoping, but they seem bent on spending their time on all that “working” and “child-rearing” and “real existence” stuff. Crazy people.

  3. I know, those darn people who have better things to do than me. Me who updates 3 times a day because my life is otherwise boring 🙂

    I’m glad you update every day!!

    Natalie, you’re so right. I should at least try RSS feeds or Google reader or something.

    Curiosity, you’re welcome. Glad I can help. 🙂

    Mom, you’re welcome. But let this be a warning to you!

    Spokeit, I check yours at least a couple of times a day (most days), so I’m thrilled you update that often. 🙂

    Token, don’t let the guilt weigh you down. 🙂 You’ve never made me wait two months (not since I’ve been following you, anyway), so you are not who that was directed to.
