The Dark Side of Nothing

My Life as it spills out onto the screen.

Happy Thanksgiving (for those that celebrate it)!

  Sorry all – I have 3 postings that I need to finish. Three of them in partial state of incompleteness. Sounds just like my life, incomplete. I will try to stay off Plurk (, Twitter (, email and general wanderings of the web so that I can get some posting done. This is just like working out. If you get off your schedule, Lord knows I didn’t have a good posting schedule to begin with, trying to get back to working out can be amazingly hard to do. There is always some excuse you can tell yourself and they seem to apply to blog writing as well: it’s too late, I’m tired, i want to watch TV/movie/porn/etc instead, I don’t feel like blogging/working out today, I’m going to be out of town (I can’t send posting even thought I on friends computer looking at sex sites) and the list goes on.

  Somewhere I found a site that was going to have a self paced contest that was to challenge you write in your blog everyday. This was to help forge the habit of writing to you blog everyday, even if it was just drool or is that dribble (crap in other words). I’m hoping this is an ongoing challenge as I would like to challenge myself to write in the blog each day. then we would get these 5000 word essays were I drive my point all over the place, get lost 3 times only to have to write a “part 2” because it 5 a.m. and I’m tired and go to bed. 

  Also I was told about another site that pays you to blog about some said topic and you have 1 or more keywords that you have to include. I say a lovely posting that included the words “intestinal cleanse” and bowel something or another, possible there was more words as well. But these are two things I’m going to look into to help motivate me to post more.

  P.S. – My dad’s cat Izzy seems to not like to have bugs on the ceiling. She will constantly scan the ceiling for suspecting bugs. If one if seen she will vocalize her findings for us. She is quite demanding in that we remove the bug, preferring that we immobilize it so that she can eat the offending critter. I once made a small pencil mark on the wall to install something. She thought it was a bug and almost went nuts chirping and trying to knock it down so that she could save us from it. I was laughing way too hard. I had to erase the mark off the wall because I couldn’t get her to realize it wasn’t a bug. Nice, now she is making my lamp move around the table as the bug has found a light source to circle. Oh gees, there goes some objects off the table onto the floor and I get the look like, “I’m not doing anything wrong, meow/chirp I lost the bug!” “Oh, wait I see it out of the corner of my eye! I got it, no wait that was your nail file.” Cat looks away and walks away from table. Meow, I’m innocent. It was the bugs fault for making me chase it!

  I’m off to bed. I will work hard to get at least one of the posting done. (Yes, I Know, we’ve heard that before) <cough> I hope everyone had a fairly good Thanksgiving. Take care and talk tomorrow.

  1. Wow, can you post a link to those two blogging sites with the challenges? I’d love to try that out – though I write in my blog every day already…
    Happy Thanksgiving to you too. Your dad’s kitty sounds incredible – I adore cats, I have two of my own, and they’re SO LIKE THAT. With the innocence thing, while breaking half the house.

    • Yes, Izzy is one strange cat and actually the other cat, Jessica, is a bit loopy as well. You can pet her most of the time but on her “off days” you will be petting her and after the 5 or 6 pet she will growl and run away. Then 3 minutes later she is back at your feet wanting to get petted. Then the same time will happen. I joke that she needs to take mood stabilizers on those “off days”..hehehe.
