Happy Social Media Day!!

I just wanted to celebrate Social Media Day with a blog post!! Not that this blog is necessarily social. It's more like an online journal where I also put my YouTube videos and things I think are funny. That's not updated regularly. That no one reads... but that's why it's not social. EXCEPT!!! That it technically is because it's a blog!

This was not meant to be a pity party. I love my random postings about nothing aimed at no one. YAY! Plus, I get people that stumble upon this every once in a while, although, honestly, they stumble right back out, if they know what's good for them!

But, happy social media day, nonetheless!! YAY!!!

This is the e-mail I just sent my husband at work. I'm too freaked out to re-write, so you'll have to pardon my grammar and whatnot. But, I just had a harrowing experience.

"I just got attacked by the chipmunk.

It knocked one of the lilies over, so I went out to push the lily upright, having seen it scamper away to cause havoc elsewhere. While I'm out there, I think I should water things (I know it's midday, but the peppers look so sad when they're not watered constantly. Plus, the peppers and the corn both have this weird puckering thing going on on their leaves, and I thought water might help.) I'm watering the plants, and I think that I'll squirt water into the logs to make them uncomfortable when the chipmunk gets back and maybe it'll decide to move (I SAW the damn thing scamper away at one point... I swear!). Well, in order to do the most damage to its home with the lease damage to the wood, I use the jet function on the hose.

THE F***ING CHIPMUNK HAD WEASLED ITSELF BACK INTO THE WOOD PILE. It came sprinting out, which was of course right by my leg- literally INCHES away from me as I'm peering in, holding the hose. This causes me to LEAP into the air, shrieking my head off and somehow managing to squirt myself in the face with the hose. This was HILARIOUS for the freaking teenagers cutting through the open area to go do something stupid, but I was not amused. I was, however, wet.

The chipmunk is a ninja, and it is dangerous. I now probably have rabies or something. Probably."

I realize that the last bit is VERY Bloggess, but I've been reading a LOT of her lately, so it makes sense that I would revert to her style in my moment of panic.

I found this image on a friend's facebook, but this HAS to be making the rounds...

Spill, baby, spill....

No apologies

It has been an exceedingly long time since I posted, it's true. However, I have had many a personal crisis/epiphany since then, so I refuse to apologize!! Life is crazy and unpredictable.

However, I discovered this amazing blog that sends people books for free! I got excited and needed to share. Look! Be amazed!
