The Same Deep Water as You
Okay, I don't feel so down anymore. At least not like yesterday. I'm feeling better, especially after reading the hilarious answers to my quickie reader survey. (By the way, you can still answer it if you want! See October 12, 2004 post below). I plan on answering the questions posed to me as soon as I gather enough to work on. In the meantime, I just want to share the following observation about what readers have so far shared:
- It seems us women do not like to poo in public (e.g., at work, the mall, any place other than in the comfort of their own home). I wish I can share this hilarious e-mail I got regarding "poo-ing etiquette" but I don't have it anymore. In any case, I can totally relate. The hubs is always asking me why it's such a big deal. I don't know why. I didn't care when I was younger (heck, I even used to poo together with my best friend), but now that I'm older, it's a big deal. When I was in college my first year (and living in the main dorms), I had to get used to it. Finally, I found a great, semi-private loo that I can use without worrying about peepz walking in. Yes, I know we are all the same. We all pee and poo. I just don't like doing it outside my home. I cannot explain this phenomenon, but I'm happy that I'm not the only one who has issues with it! =D
And here are other random blurbs...
- I re-read my whiny-ass post from yesterday about feeling fat, etc. I was appalled at how shallow I sounded. I'm really not like that. Lest you think otherwise, I am actually that kind of girl who tends to polish off other people's plates ("hey, you gonna eat that?") and the kind that can just roll off the bed in the morning and go directly to Starbucks w/o even changing (but I do need to brush my teeth no matter what). Like I said, I was just feeling low yesterday. Yes, Batjay, I know I'm not fat and I should stop torturing myself. But I think we all get into self-deprecating moods at time, right? Feeling fat was one of the many emotions I was feeling; it so happened that it was just the easiest to write about.
- I initially started this blog as a way to do writing exercises. One of my former teachers taught me that we should always be writing whether it be free association, random sentences, what have you. I am supposed to write at least a page a day. Lately, this blog has become an outlet of sorts --as I way to went, stave off boredom, entertainment, etc. I noticed that I've become much more open about me emotions and actually look forward to peoples' reactions. I still use this blog as a writing tool. I don't check my grammar or spelling (most of the time) nor do I craft sentences carefully. I write as I go. Some entries may be entertaining, some not. The point is, this blog is what I make of it....
- And with that said, I hope people realize that I only write for me and what I choose to share at the moment --what I feel, what I know, what I think, what I do. Don't assume you know someone just because you read their blog. Of course, most people already know that. However, I do not mind inquiries or getting to know fellow bloggers. (Sometimes, I feel like I'm part of community when I read others' blogs; visit "regulars;" and get feedback. It's an on-line discourse in many ways). I think blogs are great learning tools --we learn about other people and their interests via blog-hopping.
- The Wu-Tang Clan is playing a concert on November 12th at the Continental Arena! All 9 of them! (or is it 10?) Complete on-stage! I love Wu-Tang! The only catch is that I already have tickets to go see Interpol that same day. I have always wanted to see them do a show.....hm, what to do?
- I have a trial tomorrow (Thursday, EST). The top count is 2nd-degree Aggravated Assault with a Deadly Weapon. I am so nervous. I have to introduce bullets and bloody clothing as evidence. Damn. I should be working on it instead of blogging! So I will end this now...
- But before I go...I took this quiz today and thought the results were hilarious (not to mention on-point!)
