A Messed Up Week

January 21, 2010

I don’t know if it was the Holiday on Monday or if it is because I have had sick kids but this week is fucked up. I don’t have any idea what day it is. Which means I will probably miss the garbage man this week.

Where the hell is everyone? No one seems to be online. My stats are way down. Has anyone else noticed this?

Have any of you (if there is anyone out there) tried Trader Joe’s Oreo type cookies? I think they are called Joe Joes. They are awesome! A million times better than Oreos and less expensive too. The cream filling isn’t all hard and chalky, it actually oozes out a little if you squish the cookie. (Trader Joe’s has not offered to pay me for this glowing review of their awesomely yummy cookie but if they did I’d be happy to accept).

From the Department of No Duh, John Edwards finally admits that baby Quinn is his child. She was conceived after Elizabeth Edwards announced she had cancer again and that it was terminal. What an absolute butthead John Edwards is.

Conan O’Brien’s last Tonight Show will be tomorrow night. NBC is paying him $32 million to go away. His staff was given $12 million in severance pay. I didn’t really watch the Tonight Show until all this mess broke out and then I started watching it because the guests and Conan just let it all loose. I think they were drunk most of the time. I have no plans to watch Leno. Now that Conan has all that money wouldn’t it be nice if he donated a million or two to the relief efforts in Haiti? Or to me, that would work too.

I have moved my Kids of Queers blog to kidsofqueers.com. I still have the old blogspot blog up but if you have it in your bookmarks please change it as I will be taking it down as soon as I find a theme that works for me. Currently I am using the standard WordPress theme and it sucks. I have updated it however so go and take a look. I’ll be moving all the widgets and my blogroll over there as well so if you want to be on that blogroll please leave a comment over there.

    I’m around, but I’ve been buried in work and gotten behind on my blog reading and commenting. I miss everyone. This working for a living sucks. Where’s a rich old bastard when I really need one?

    Thats what I’d like to know! Seriously, the internet has been a ghost town!

    It’s been that kind of week for me too (ok, for the last 2 weeks). Maybe it’s Post-Holiday-WTF-Is-It-All-About-Anyway syndrome?

    Jayne: I don’t know where any rich old bastards are but Tiger has finally been spotted in AZ and he has tons of money, all you have to do is put out a little.

    Meleah: What’s up with that? It’s been really lonely here lately. Is there some big blogging event that we weren’t invited to?

    Mike: I have that syndrome, it’s nice to have a name for it, thank you.

    It’s been a ghost town on my blogs too. For a minute there I thought I had no comments because I dissed George Clooney. But then the other posts I’ve done since have no or virtually no comments either.

    Is everyone hiding under the covers to keep warm?

    Does everyone have SAD so bad that they don’t have the energy type comments after they’ve gone through all the work of turning on the computer and reading a blog post?

    AmyLK: I was talking about those people who aren’t here, or at least the ones who don’t say anything.

    Lola: So it isn’t just me? That’s good. Maybe it is the cold. All I want to do is get under a blanket. My fingers are freezing.

    I need to go leave comments on all these guys blogs! It’s my birthday and I’m depressed and why the hell do I find that funny? I would be better off sleeping till April, I swear. My life seems full of kitty liter, dog poop, and dirty socks. But look on the bright side! WTF is that?

  • Reply Maureen@IslandRoar January 21, 2010 at 7:12 pm

    Yeah, can you believe Edwards!? I hope that poor kid lets him have it one day for denying being her father for 2 years.
    And Conan got robbed; he has been funny as hell this week.

    It has been quiet. Maybe catching up after the holidays? I’m usually bored and at loose ends following the holiday rush.
    John Edwards is so irrelevant. He’s under the miconception that any of us care what he does! I too amd hoping that little girl gives it to her “Daddy” for denying her for her first 2 years. What an idiot!

  • Reply Pricilla January 21, 2010 at 8:31 pm

    I was in Missoula buying rock to make a hearth. But I’m back now….
    John Edwards is an idiot
    I have never seen Leno or Conan.

    Linda: Happy Birthday! Try to go out and get some sunlight, that always helps me.

    Maureen: He’s a piece of work. That’s all I’m going to say.

    Buggys: It must be the lull after the holidays because it is really quiet around here.

    Pricilla: At first I thought you wrote “a rock” which I would have commented that it must have been a very special rock but now I see there was no “a”. Sounds like you are nearing the finish line on the house?

    I haven’t tried Joe Joe’s but I am currently addicted to Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Almond Chip Cookies (or something like that.) They are so completely and utterly addictive that they completely broke me of my Trader Joe’s Belgian Chocolate Pudding addiction, which had broken my Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate-Covered Pretzels addiction–
    and so on. 😉

    • Reply Jen January 22, 2010 at 5:47 pm

      I haven’t tried Trader Joe’s Dark Chocolate Almond Chip Cookies but I think I might make a special trip to find me some. I realize that they are probably a gateway cookie but I’m sure I can just eat them recreationally without developing a problem.

  • Reply GDad January 22, 2010 at 7:09 am

    My place has been mostly dead, too. It’s like my hip nightclub turned into a country diner where four people stop by each morning for a cup of coffee and NO idle chatter, thank you very much.

    I updated my link to you.

    I wish I would have thought up the ‘pay me money to go away’ thing.

    I’d be RICH.

    Hi Jen,
    I have not tried Joe Joe’s, but if I can find them on line, I’m going to!
    There are famous people who donate to causes anonymously because they don’t want people and organizations crawling out of the woodwork with hands out. I’m sure Conan will be participating monetarily in the telethon tonight.
    Geez, after taxes he gets maybe 18M, then 3.2 M goes to his manager and 3.2 goes to his agent and some lovely sum to his PR person….and then the balance goes to his wife! Conan will be virtually penniless. 🙂

    I’ve noticed the blogs I follow have been updated less often lately. I know JD is lviing it up in Jamaica, but I guess everyone else is just busy. I’ve been struggling for topics and have finally realized that sometimes it’s okay not to blog.

    I missed the trash run last week! I had the trash out before 7:30 and still managed to have missed them. This week (I’ve also been confused as to the actual days), I kept trying to remind myself to get the trash out the night before. It worked. Hooray, because the cup was runnething over.

    Oh, and we don’t have a Trader Joe’s, so I don’t get to try those Oreos. 🙁

    I was just telling hubby last night, that attendence was down.
    Maybe everybody still hasn’t gotten back into the groove of this yet.

    I sent a link to your other blog to my brother.

  • Reply Jen January 22, 2010 at 6:00 pm

    GDad: Thanks for updating the link. I wonder where everyone is? Maybe all my readers are from California and they are just too busy getting out of the way of the mudslides. I’m pretty sure I have readers on the east coast too.

    Moooog: Never underestimate the power of annoyance.

    PJ: I’m sure Conan will do his part to help out in whatever way he can. You might be right that he will be penniless after everyone else gets there hand on his money but I have a hard time fathoming how someone could earn $32 million and have nothing to show for it.

    Surfie: I know JD is gone but I didn’t hear that anyone else was. JD makes a lot of noise but she isn’t that loud to shut down the blogosphere just because she is off in the tropics running around naked. Maybe everyone figures since she wasn’t around to do anything for them that they might as well take a break too. Who knew she had so much on her shoulders. The girl really does need a break.

    I just checked on TraderJoes.com and they don’t sell online. But if you really want them I can send you some. Don’t forget the Girl Scout cookies however.

    Heather: I’ll keep an eye out for your brother, thanks for passing that on to him.

    Hey, Jen! It was definitely a crazy week… up to the big full moon finish! That always explains a lot! Thanks for the heads up about the change of location for your other blog.

  • Reply Jen January 23, 2010 at 10:05 am

    Cat Lady: It was a full moon? Well that explains it. It’s been so cloudy here recently I haven’t been able to see the moon so I had no idea. Thanks for letting me know.

    I don’t know about the Trader Joe’s cookies but I wish we had one around here for the produce selection! Wow I found some neat yummy stuff the last time we were at one.

    We are building a hearth. It was 600lbs of rock. That is a lot of rock

  • Reply Dave DeWall January 23, 2010 at 5:43 pm

    Hi Jen, I don’t like Leno, never watched Conan, think he got the shaft (if you can call getting 32 million the shaft), John Edwards is a piece of crap (actually he is lower than that), my stats have been up, but I credit a lot of that due to Adgitize advertising that recently started. We don’t have SAD in the Philippines, temps in the upper 80’s with sunshine (I know, it’s a hard life here.) Always enjoy your funny and personal posts.

  • Reply Jen January 23, 2010 at 5:48 pm

    Stephanie: They do have good produce but not a lot of it, at least at the one by me. I don’t like how the store is laid out, there isn’t enough room in the aisles and no one seems to know which way to go. There is no flow to the store. I love their sushi and hummus as well.

    Pricilla: That is a lot of rock!

    Dave: Thanks Dave, I’m glad you are enjoying the weather and that your stats are up. But you have snakes down there! I do think Conan got the shaft but he came out ok. I’m sure all will be fine in the late night world after the Olympics.

    If it makes you feel any better, my comments are way down, too. I assumed it was just me, and I pissed one too many people off with my “Kiss My Grits” post from a couple of weeks ago. It was one of those venting posts that you write when you’re in a foul mood. I guess you’re never allowed to be in one n the blogosphere.

    I thought switching from Echo to Disqus would up my comment count, seeing as the latter is more user friendly, but I’m still watching them decline. Maybe I’m getting more and more boring. I don’t know.

    Anyway, I wish I had a Trader Joe’s. The nearest one is like an hour away. I keep reading all this good stuff about it online–I can now add great oreos to that list–but I just haven’t gotten to the point yet where I want to drive an hour to buy the good stuff. I’m jealous that you have one nearby. All I have is Kroger, Walmart, Target, and Publix.
