I get unreasonably grumpy if my friends don't post. I want my blogfix, dammit! It's even more unreasonable given that I haven't been posting much lately. I just can't seem to muster the funny. And I don't want to be a big ol' whiner baby, even though in all actuality I am a big ol' whinerbaby.

Although, inability to muster the funny certainly hasn't kept me from posting in the past. Not that I can really post in the past, being TARDIS-less at the moment, but I'm sure you catch my drift, and were no doubt nodding in agreement before I confused myself with my own syntax. The pen is indeed mightier than the sword, at least when it comes to poking my brain. In theory. Not one I'd like to put to the test.

Notice how I just posted a disclaimer? It's a habit I've gotten into because I'm a jinx. A bona fide walking talking jinx. This is not a theory, and has been proven more times than I care to remember. Don't believe me? Then talk to my ex boss, who once passed a rule that I was only allowed to talk about food and weather, and the second topic only when it wasn't hurricane season.

Many many years ago, when my ex and I had not been married very long, we were headed out to dinner with my family. It was pouring rain, and as we pulled out of the driveway he mentioned how fierce the storm was. I blithely laughed, "Oh, what do we care - we're young, in love, and live in a house where the roof doesn't leak." Then we looked at each other in horror, and I added, "YET...where the roof doesn't leak YET!"

It was too late. The damage had been done. We returned from dinner to find water pouring from the ceiling in not one but TWO places. We found the other two leaks a couple of days later.

One of these days, I'm going to learn to keep my mouth shut.

Harumph!

I get unreasonably grumpy when there is an event, say, like the Academy Awards, and I'm waiting patiently for a review of what people were wearing. This review makes even Joan and Melissa's look pathetic, and it never arrives.

So THERE. :O)

Re: Harumph!

At first I didn't think I could do one, since most everyone looked at least passably put together. But, as the days go by, certain things have started to really annoy me. So, as soon as I track down some links to some good pics, I'll post a review.

I admit, I signed on hoping you had written a review of the awards, too. Just promise that you'll do it when you get your funny back. OK?

And I thought that I was the only jinx I knew. I am such a jinx, I've gotten to the point I say the opposite of what I think and I can tell that it has made some difference. :-/ I never share good news until it is part of the past. If I announce that something good is potentially about to happen, you can rest assured, not only does it not happen, but something bad will happen instead. So I try to be very careful with that.

take care!

I've been tempted to try the opposite thing, except there is also a certain Irony Factor in my life, and I figure that will just kick in.
