A Cleaning Frenzy


See, this is what I like about getting to dictate my own blog rules. I SHOULD be giving every single detail about my trip to Trinidad and everything else that happened this summer. I SHOULD tell you that it was awesome and fabulous and we had a bitchin' time. And I SHOULD tell you that I'm back in Winnipeg now and am in a cleaning frenzy to "get ready for school" which starts on September 9th.

I SHOULD tell you all of those things.

But I don't really WANT to.

So, here is a sampling of blog posts that I started over the past few weeks and didn't finish. Because I just didn't feel like it.

1. No Title (Because I'm Bad Like That)

AGH! NOOO! I'm doing it again! I'm failing to blog for weeks straight! You guys! This isn't good!

I know I said I don't like people breaking the fourth wall when it comes to my blog, but that only applies when we're in PERSON! COMMENT, YOU GUYS! I wrote that EPIC post about me yorking all over the Capitol steps AND NO ONE CARED. Do you know what that DOES to a girl's self esteem? Shit's CRAZY.


What have I been doing recently?

Not a whole heck of a lot.

I know I'm in Our National's Capital, so the thought that I'm doing squat is pretty ridonculous. But these days, I'm more inclined to sleep until 2pm, laze around, watch old House re-runs and spend WAY too much time on Facebook.

2. Love-Hate Relationships

Everything is different when you're in a long-distance relationship. Nothing is the same as when you both live within ten miles of each other. The dynamic is different. Every conversation is long and full and complicated because once you're finally in a rhythm with that person again, after how ever many days it's  been, you don't want to lose it.

I'm not in one of these relationships - I'm in several. I'm with family right now, which, ironically, means I'm not with any of my friends. Every friend I care about is far away - whether its the other side of the world, thousands of miles south of here, or a short bus ride north of me, not one of them is here.

The internet eases the pain. It always has. I got my first ever email account (the Hotmail account I use to this day) before I moved away from Poland, and though there have been some fabulous technological advances since then - Gmail, MSN, Skype, Facebook - the basic principles are still the same. Internet may ease the pain, but it doesn't make it go away.

This is the second post in a row that has sounded down. That's probably because I'm writing it at closer to 4 in the morning than 3. (Barely.)

3. An Update from AMERICA


And in the homeland. I figured I should update so I don't look like Ms. Allie over at Hyperbole and a Half, not blogging for a month. I WOULD blog, except I didn't bring Flamingo (my laptop. Seriously. If you don't know that, learn to use my *Archives* -->) and the only laptop around is my brother's, but more importantly, the internet around here is majorly lacking.

We're gonna make a list now, so I can organize mah thoughts.

  1. ANOTHER THING THAT'S MAJORLY LACKING - COLDNESS. If you know me, you know how much I love to be cold and how much I hate to be hot. It is HOT here.

See, you guys? I tried. You can't say I didn't TRY.

Meanwhile, props to Kaster ( for blogging again. Props to my brother ( for doing what I've encouraged him to for YEARS, and creating a place to post all the links he bombardes Facebook with. Props to Ms. Chesler ( for moving into her new house TODAY and being unlike me and blogging about every minute of it.

Props to everyone but Happy Little Lemon, who, I assure you, will get better at this.

Only if I feel like it.


  1. Props to Happy Little Lemon for the cleaning frenzy. And for blogging, however incomplete. Title it "Unfinished Symphony."
    Keep it up, we love you and HLL has fans, but we are shy.

  2. Here I'm dogging you on FB (sorry about that 4th wall) and here you're giving me props. Glad you're updating while I go in a blogging hole, only having internet that may be just slightly faster than dial-up. Were you alive when there was only dial-up?
