This Time It's The Big One!

I'm going to start blogging again.

And this time I mean it.

Not like those other times I said "... and this time I  mean it!" but took a nap and went shoe shopping instead.

Once upon a time, in a galaxy far far away, I was what you would consider a "blogger."  Born mostly of boredom and the need to purge this Pandora's Box I call a mind, I spent hour upon hour parked in front of this computer making fun of my crazy neighbor, the kid working the movie theater concession stand, politics and literature.  I've lost track of most of my readers, and due to an unfortunate compulsion to use the "delete" button I've lost most of those blogs.  Since then I spend at least once a week insisting to myself that I'm going to get back on the blogging horse again.  Because of that I spend at least twice a week sitting here staring at the "post new blog" button before I close everything out, shut the computer and wach a "Sanford and Son" rerun on Tv-Land.

Then I take a nap.

(If napping was an Olympic sport I'd be making my country proud right now. )

Anyway, in light of the fact that I have nothing better to do with my time... And in light of the fact that I think I've seen every episode of "Sanford and Son" twice over...  I'm making a promise to myself that I'm going to start blogging again.

Can't wait to read more from you! And, just so you feel better, I think I've seen every episode of Sanford and Son, too. My dad loved that show and we always watched it at the dinner table. I'm comin', Elizabeth!

That show is so awesome. Thank Gawd for TV Land.

Glad your back in the game. I too, had to hop back on the blogging train. I didn't realize until a few days ago how much I miss it.

The thought of watching Sanford and Son brings back loads of childhood memories! I didn't know it was on in syndication!
