Seven Days of Blogging: Day 1, Unprofound

So I haven’t been blogging much lately. Much of it is the fault of this:

And some of it is because I don’t want to post anything that is not profound.

I have a friend who is a successful blogger. We were visiting and she said ” You’re posts don’t have to be profound, people just want a glimpse into your life.” Maybe that’s true. Maybe she’s a liar. She did also say that bangs were going out of style.

So what was my day like?

It began with a Bollywood:

Then apple galettes.

Then, a lot of ladies came over to watch FCBD Vol.9 with me. What? You weren’t here? I invited you!

One of them gave me a gift.

And I had an interesting discussion with one of their nine year old boys on the appropriateness of the godesses’ breasts, and the salvation of my soul.

Then I had some emotions about troupe dynamics.

And for dinner we had potluck leftovers.

And rum.

And I ordered a vulva necklace. Take that, nine year old.

So what did you do today? Do you want to read my unprofound posts? Well, if so, you’re in for a week long treat. And if not, brace yourself.

  1. I never think my posts are profound either. And I haven't been blogging that long, but my friends apparently are rabid readers and love to hear about my nothing.


  2. Ha! I am not a lier and I never said bangs are going out of style. I said Dan prefers me without bangs. It's all about keeping my man happy. And I LOVE the unprofound so keep blogging… And change your preferences so I can comment with my blog URL, please! πŸ™‚


  3. Michelle, I had a moment of wondering how you knew I was talking about you…..then I remembered the linking! I will see what I can do about my blog preferences. The entire thing needs an overhaul. Maybe I have a friend that could help me………..

    Glad to hear you're taking care of that man's needs πŸ˜›

    And thanks for keeping me inspired!


  4. I haven't ever blogged anything profound. But I look at my blogging as not about being profound or wowing others… I've never been successful at any sort of journaling, and I think I need to. So my idea was that if others are reading it, and they notice I'm not writing it I might feel like I need to do it more often. That hasn't worked well for me either, though. haha!

    But Melanie, those of us who like each other aren't able to live as neighbors in a cozy little suburb (yay) where we know everything about each other. Blogs are the next best thing to living next door, sort of. We don't need to read or share profoundness with every post. Just little glimpses so we feel more connected to each other?

    I am still bummed about missing sunday. 😦


  5. Of course I can help. We'll have to mix in some blogging with some knitting, though. I really need someone to help (make) me knit. Bring your iPad tomorrow. Oh wait. Never mind. j/k πŸ˜‰


  6. The ironic thing about the suburbs is there is no sense of community. At least from our experience in the suburbs. The closest thing to community you get is the neighbor's garage door slamming in your face.
