Hello Again

Hello there! Me again. Thought you'd gotten rid of me, didn't you? Sorry!

As George Costanza would say: I'M BACK, BABY, I'M BACK!  SO NER! The 'so ner' bit was from me, not George.


I just haven't bothered posting here for a while for the following reasons:

Laziness
School holidays
Dodgy internet connection
Nothing remotely interesting to post about
I was too busy totalling our old car (ahem)
We had to get a new car (see above)
Did I mention laziness?

So now that I've confessed that I'm tragically lazy, (just to tell you something you didn't already know), I have a couple more shocking revelations.

As I mentioned above, I managed to write off our old car. On the last week of term before the school holidays, I set off one afternoon to pick up Mr 13. As I was driving along the narrow street at the back of the school which leads to the car park, I spotted him walking towards me. In my stupidity, I kept my eyes off the road for just a second or two too long and BAM! I hit a parked car. Genius.

According to Mr 13 it happened because he is just so devastatingly handsome that I couldn't take my eyes off him. True.

It's hard to explain, but because of the way or angle I hit the other car, the entire front left tyre and suspension were completely stuffed. Fun times.

On the positive side, we had been intending to get a new car for ages so this sped up the process considerably.

Meanwhile, here is the most shocking revelation of all:

I haven't really missed blogging much. I know. How shameful. I often read about how passionate others are about writing and realise that I'm not. Once I get started I do like it and usually feel better, just like with exercise. However, I'm not passionately driven to do it everyday.

Therefore, I have two choices:


1. Quit blogging
2. Continue with my ad hoc blogging approach
3. Realise that nobody really cares one way or the other anyway, so just get a life and get on with it.



Oh okay, that was three choices. I'm not good with numbers.

I have heard of something called 'slow blogging', so I'm sure I could make 'ad hoc blogging' a thing. It's totally revolutionary! I could even come up with a printable! It would say something like:

AD HOC BLOGGING


Blog whenever you like, however you like!

On second thought, it sounds like too much effort to come up with that printable, so just write it on a sticky note, okay? Done.

In keeping with the ad hoc approach, I'm just jumping from one topic to the next, in a totally random fashion. Which brings me to the topic of this week's I Must Confess: Fashion. Specifically our most embarrassing pieces. Now I'm laughing at myself for calling my clothes 'pieces'. Snort. Pieces of crap, perhaps.

 It would be far too difficult for me to single out certain things that are more embarrassing than others. All of my 'fashion' (and I use that term rather loosely, just as I wear most of my clothes, coincidentally), is embarrassing. This is due to the fact that 90% of it sports a Millers tag. Classy. That is a shameful enough confession without providing photographic evidence as well.  Oh all right, if you insist....

The other 10% of my clothes sport an equally classy label such as Best & Less. I like to mix it up a bit. I've even splurged and bought some shoes a week or two ago from Payless Shoes. Are you detecting a theme here?


If that theme seems to scream: Lifestyles of the Broke And Aimless, then you've totally got where I'm coming from. On the plus side, at least you can leave my blog feeling smug and superior. Unlike other blogs or on Facey where everyone seems to be just better than you. In every way: clothes, lifestyle, holidays, diets, running.




So I'm providing a community service really. No matter how pathetic your life seems, there is always somebody more pathetic! ME! You're welcome.

Over and out for now. Stay tuned for the next ad hoc post. It might be tomorrow, next week, next month or next  year, you just never know! Ad hoc blogging! It's a thing! Spread the word. Or not. Whatever. Only if you feel like it. That's the idea. Ad hoc.

Later dudes!  


Linking up for I Must Confess and Laugh Link

What are you having for dinner?

(You see what I did there? Totally ad hoc question, in keeping with the ad hoc theme!)  Shut up....

  1. To answer your random ad hoc question - Tacos. I'm wearing a stipey cotton shirt from Cotton On (2 for $25 deal), a pair of frayed denim shorts and rancid shoes. Don't get to feeling too inferior in Nessville.

  2. I totally get the ad hoc blogging thing because that's what I do - glad to hear it's a 'thing' !!!! As for dinner - I have absolutely no bloody idea - and, until it get's to about 6.30pm, I still won't have a clue - then, I generally hope that A isn't hungry and doesn't want dinner BUT, on the off chance that he is hungry and wants dinner, I sure hope he has a plan because I don't !!!
    Have a good one and I'll catch you whenever you are back - tomorrow, next week, next month or next year !!!! You are too amusing to let go !!

  3. I love this!! Especially this : Now I'm laughing at myself for calling my clothes 'pieces'. Snort. Pieces of crap, perhaps.
    That is exactly how I feel when I write about clothes. Or when I look at fashion bloggers...But I figure, we just make them look good. So, as you say, you're welcome.
    You just have to prod us when the new post is out, so we know to swing by...I love your blog!

  7. I FORBID you from stopping - you make me laugh when you write, it's probably good for your soul and is a nice wee diary for you to look back on and remember what you have been up to. Shitburgers about the car but well played - here's to new wheels. Thanks for linking, Em x

  8. As long as you keep blogging do it as much or as little as you like Ness! And I have to laugh at the whole fashiony thing - I'm so not a fashion blogger as well :)

    1. I'm a FIFO blogger. I fly in and out of the blogging scene. That actually has a better ring to it than ad hoc...hmmmmm....

      I'm not really into Fashion blogs at all, just quietly. But obviously there's a reason for that. I lack class. And cash...ahem..

      Thanks Kirsty. xo
