ABOUT ME

About me: I'm 42 and added another gherkin to our pickle party of a family. My husband Chuck, our 9-year-old Junior, our 6-year-old Everett, our toddler and I live in a town in Connecticut I affectionately call Mulletville Lite (aka my childhood hometown). My friends call me Nutjob, and they're right. In my husband's spare time he dresses up as a Viking and chases ghosts (and I'm the nutjob?). When I'm not busy working as a graphic designer, I lie in a ball in the corner.

A date should come with more legs



I know this picture is gross, but it makes me think about modern society and how cheap it feels lately. There's no context. No meat. It's all tweets, texts and twats and wham, bam, thank you, ma'am. Text me! Friend me! Give me your status update!

Communication's been whittled down to a stuffed stump on a metal pole—and the worst part is that my own greedy-for-Junior-news mother has become part of the machine. She's on Facebook.

She's holding the bucket, folks, and she wants the goods.

I blame Miley Cyrus.

And I'm taking the weekend off from this damn computer. Maybe Monday, too.

Hopefully they bought that stallion dinner first. Wow...hmmmm...wow. I know it happens but seeing it in technicolor, wow...hmmmm...wow.

I agree completely.

I find that it is necessary for me to take frequent 'technology breaks' for my own sanity.

Everything in moderation, right?

I don't think my job is so bad now, thank you very much. Enjoy your PC free weekend plus days.

Makes me glad the goats around here do it the old fashioned way....

Julia said...

I totally understand. You may have noticed my slow down in posts lately...

Have a great break.

Jen said...

Wow, that is just what I wanted to see before my weekend started. It really gets me in the mood.

I blame everything on Miley Cyrus, though I do have a little sympathy for her since her father is Mr. Achy Breaky Heart.

Leanne said...

I hear you. Take the weekend off and uh, write a children's book or something. :)

Keely said...

What...what is going in that picture?

I think I'm traumatized.

I think I've found my next career opportunity...NOT.

Enjoy your break.

My Dad's on Facebook too.

It's a scary world out there.

Becki said...

So true...I know so much about friends I haven't actually talked to in months just from reading Facebook updates...

WhisperingWriter said...

I also blame Miley Cyrus.

That turned me on.

A lot.

Ahem.

So...

I agree with you. Totally.
