Blogging Dumb Shit I Do Writing

Taking Stock

I haven’t been blogging much lately. No one has, it’s summer, Facebook is so much easier and there are only so many things you can write about and I blew my wad years ago by writing every day – sometimes twice. But with the recent development of celebrity naked selfies I just have too much to say. Seriously how dumb is Jennifer Lawrence to take naked photos and store them in the cloud?*

I’ve also refrained from blogging because I don’t want to offend people. I don’t know when that happened but it probably took root when I started getting more traffic and more and more people in real life knew I had a blog.

No longer was my little space on the internet a secret. I have clients, ex husbands (and his lawyer) and family who are all aware of my blog and knowing they might be reading it makes me careful of what I might say.

Well, fuck that.

I’ve got a lot to say and I’m not going to worry about what other people think about it. They already think the things I worry about them thinking of me already or they never will. And they would be right to.

Ya still with me?

Anyway, stay tuned for more ranting in the coming weeks (if you’re still reading this). I’ve got a lot to say about naked celebrity selfies, our politicians, public school, ass surgery and all kinds of other things.

If you’re still blogging leave a comment, I’m going to start reading blogs again, too.

God, I hope this isn’t the pain killers talking.

* I don’t think Jennifer Lawrence is stupid, I like her and feel bad that she has been chosen as the face of this scandal. At least she copped to them being pictures of her. And, the cloud is confusing, if I were to take naked pictures of myself I’d probably have some up there too, though would have no way of knowing.

    I think any celebrity who lets naked pictures be taken of them in this tech age and then expects them to remain private is stupid. But hey, she’s only 23. I was pretty stupid then, too. Nice to see you back.

      I have to assume that they know if they take pictures of their naked selves that they will end up on the internet. I also think they count on this very thing happening for extra publicity. It wasn’t an issue until it was a celebrity, or a bunch of them, who got exposed so clearly it’s a slow news week.

        I have searched and searched for proof of Jayne’s stupid phase without success. But I’m not giving up, not ever.

          Look in the 60s. I wouldn’t use the word stupid so much as maybe drunk, high or just carefree. There is nothing stupid about Jayne.

    Ass surgery? Can’t wait to hear. Welcome back to the blogging universe. There’s far too few of our original gang doing any kind of writing save the banal stuff on Facebook. I confess my own output has slipped to once or twice a week but at least I haven’t quit altogether. Looking forward to your unique take on things, Jenn.

      You don’t want to hear about ass surgery but I’ll be happy to post about it for you. I’ve been posting about it on FB but Mike WJ usually co-opts the thread and we end up talking about naked celebrities.

    Can we focus on the naked celebrities, please?

    I really want to get back to blogging, I really miss it. With the exhb knowing about it, I really feel censored in a way. I don’t want to stir the pot, things are real quiet now. The freebies for reviews were nice, but I miss the regular blogging-current events, memes, things going on in my life. My readers have long gone, I’d pretty much have to start from scratch, and that would include a different blog name. I really loved the old one and the header. I really miss blogging.

    “naked pictures” – I’ve come across this phrase before but can’t imagine what that might be – pictures with no borders? But ‘pictures of naked people” that I understand. And I certainly don’t know what the big deal is, unless of course the naked person in question has a body that, for aesthetic reasons, should be completely covered at all times.

    I have no idea who Jennifer Lawrence is but then I am old and don’t have much of a life.
