Just realized that we can’t all agree on Spring. It’s fall in other parts of the world. Coming on summer down South, much of California doesn’t really have seasons.
To me Spring means allergies. Where you see trees budding, I see stuffed noses. Where you see flowers blooming, I see sneezes and headaches. I hate rain with a passion some people reserve for psychopaths. Rain means the return of the mold farm, or molded head syndrome. An increasingly common condition that affects me more dramatically each year
Put the post I had up in draft because I hated it. Shayna I know that you will understand. If I haven’t answered comments, I will. I have an incredible desire to spend the next four days reading and watching TV. Think my DVR is almost all filled, since I basically watch yes, Boston Legal and The Soprano’s but my DVR seems to have issues with Tony, and won’t record it. Doesn’t matter, I know, I have HBO on demand. Just have an obsessive need to watch all TV shows DVR’d.
Don’t try to understand. I gave up trying to understand my obsessions a long time ago. If they don’t hurt me or others, I give them free reign. If they’re harmful, I try to find something not harmful.
Though once I found blogging, I found the mother ship where all obsessive/compulsives can pass for normal. It’s a fun parallel universe, but sometimes I need to be grounded in the real world
Here is a link to the story I wrote last Passover, The Oldest Child on The LIRR. On the sidebar to the left are Best of BIO posts, best of Courting posts, my ID post at Blog Critics–no person would want that many comments, trust me. Actually I do encourage lurkers; nobody should ever feel obliged to comment. Hate the word “lurker.” How about “reader?”
On that note I wrote a story in October, came home to one of the nastiest comments that led to one of the sickest exchanges I have encountered and I’m a frequent blogging sick comment recipent. I didn’t delete or ban at the time of that exhange. I do now. Read it, and understand why.
Finally each person who wrote a post or comments about me, is of course incredibly brilliant, but also have blogs worth reading. So read them
