This only confirms what I've known all along: that I'm a sleazy opportunist just waiting for the right time to pounce.

Okay. I can't stand it.

I'm going to post links to stuff I like and I'm going to make comments on them, just like would on SU. Even though nobody can see this. It doesn't matter. I'm doing it because I don't know how else to act after 8 months of doing just that.

May I recommend the most fascinating site I've seen today?
World's Rarest, Best & Coolest
There. I did it! More on why later. In the meantime, the graphic is enough to satisfy me. I feel way better. Way.

i got sssssssteam heat

So, I woke up this morning at 8:30 a.m., which, I'll grant you, is early by my recent standards.
Husband: You gettin' up?
Me: Uh, yeah.
Husband: Why?
Me: I have to pee, I need some coffee and I need a cigarette.
Husband: You don't have to get up now. It's early. You never get up this early. (leaves bedroom)
Now mind you, last night's fight was also about how slack I am and what a bad housekeeper, wife, time-manager I am. I assumed he would be thrilled that I was awake that early. So I rolled back over. Five minutes later...
Husband: I thought you were getting up.
Me: You acted like you wanted me to stay in bed.
Husband: I don't care if you stay in bed or not. But I let the dog out and I put some tea on for iced tea and it's getting ready to boil over.
Me: So what you're saying is that you want me to get up.
Husband: Well, I think you better get up if you don't want the dog dying from the heat and the tea to burn up.
Me: Okay. I'm getting up.
I bounced off every door frame between the bedroom and the kitchen as I stumbled through. I turned around and there he was, in the living room, briefcase in hand.
Husband: Have a fun day with your new steam cleaner. I hear it takes wrinkles out of curtains.
Someone just shoot me. Now.

happy bunny's got nothing on me.

So, I've been crying all night. My husband and I had a great big nasty ugly hideous horrible fight about how much time I spend on the Internet. I had a blog on Stumbleupon of which I was very, very proud. In 7 months, I built my readership up to about 100 people daily. That's a lot for a little SU blog with no Technorati links or anything. I even gave up my sporadic posting on my TypePad blog and became a sponsor of Stumbleupon. All for what? To be told that I had to give up the Internet or find another husband.

There is no doubt I've been spending a lot of time on the Internet. Well, with Stumbleupon, one must. It is, after all, a site where people recommend sites to other people. To find sites, one must be on the Internet. And I was. I took that blog very seriously. To what end? Nothing. I did make friends, which I hope to keep. In the meantime, this blog will keep me from losing my everloving mind. At least, what's left of it.
