The Post Where I Ramble About Kale Chips and Bane

Happy Friday!!!  Bells and whistles and parades and whee! Unless you work weekends, in which case….. Awwwkkwwaarrddd.

I haven’t felt much like writing lately. I haven’t really had much to say. Which, I think, means I kind of suck as a writer. Not that I’m saying I’m a writer. I don’t know if I would ever feel comfortable calling myself a writer unless I wrote a book and got paid for it. I’m more like a typer and word-spitter-outter.

Anyway. I don’t have many full, coherent sentences to string together to form a poignant or even funny blog post, so instead you get a bunch of bullet points that are easier to read than a paragraph, anyway. You’re welcome.

  • I won something. I got a phone call the other day to tell me I won tickets to see the Indigo Girls in Atlanta TONIGHT! I was so excited! I never win anything, and I’ve never won tickets from a radio station (I forgot to mention they were from a radio station. I fail at stories.). Not only that, but I won an overnight stay at a hotel down there. I’m taking my friend and former quartet-mate Lynda. Cannot wait!
  • We watched The Dark Knight Rises the other night. I really enjoyed it and I think it was my 2nd favorite of the series (my first favorite being Batman Begins). My only problem was that even though Bane was an awesome bad guy, he sounded like a drunk robot and I could barely understand him. GO HOME BANE, YOU ARE DRUNK.
  • Nellie has been saying hilarious things and I’ve been trying to compile them weekly. Once I get enough “Nellie-isms” for the week I will share them here on my blog.
  • I just tried to make some kale chips. I put too much pepper on them, and also burned some. So the ones that didn’t either taste like burning or ashes tasted pretty good. Note to self: pay more attention to your cooking kale chips and less attention to your Nook.
  • I’m currently reading “Divergent”, which I really like. I loved the Hunger Games and liked Matched okay. I feel Divergent is superior to Matched, mostly because the female character is more interesting and the whole “dystopian universe” is better than it is in Matched.
  • I’ve been thinking of getting a tattoo, partly because Josh’s Christmas gift from me this year is $200 toward a new tattoo (I didn’t spoil anything, he already knows) and partly because I was inspired by one of my favorite bloggers to get one. I just need to figure out what I want. I was considering “honey badger don’t give a shit”, but then I wondered how in the hell I would explain that one to my grandkids.
  • I’m feeling kind of “blah” right now. I’m not sure if it’s because the anniversary of my mom’s death is coming up, or if I’m just tired, or what. Blah.

Well, that was fun. I hope you enjoyed reading it and if you didn’t, maybe you found something good to watch on T.V. to keep your interest instead. I’ll be back with a funnier blog post soon. Promise.


  1. Love that you used bullets for your post, and love that you’re going to see the Indigo Girls. That’s fantastic. Have fun!!

  2. Of course you are a writer!
    I haven’t had much to say this week either. I’ve got lots going on to talk about, but I really can’t put it all in words right now.
    You’re coming to Atlanta??? 😀
    I’ve been meaning to get Dark Knight Rises. I love the batman series. Batman begins was my favorite too.
    Kids say the funniest things. I swear, sometimes I have to take a double look at Pookah. Dude, what are you..30?
    I’m going to check out Divergent. I need new reading material.
    I’ve always wanted a tattoo,but I have absolutely no clue what I get!
