Twelve Years Gone By

Please excuse my lack of bloggery… I was busy attending my daughter’s wedding. ❤

I seem to be out of writing mode, which will change shortly as I’ve rejoined a great prompt group that meets weekly, plus September always motivates me. I’m a student at heart. New school year, crisp notebook, let’s go!

But in the meantime, I wanted to say something, so I decided to turn to my trusty old Ultrablog archives. Apparently I said nothing 10 years ago (hard to believe), so I went back 12 (I don’t like elevens). Twelve years ago I was married, had two children living with me, and for some bizarre reason went to see the Dukes of Hazzard movie.

Now, if you had asked me point-blank an hour ago, Paula, did you ever see the Dukes of Hazzard movie? I would have said no and I would have probably even denied knowing there existed a Dukes of Hazzard movie. But archives do not lie! And if Google Drive says I saw a movie, then I saw it. I suppose in the scheme of things that forgetting the Dukes is no great loss. I hope I don’t forget anything important however, such as a subthread from Game of Thrones.

I said I liked the movie except for Burt Reynolds being miscast as Boss Hogg. I also said the TV Roscoe was funnier and I was disappointed that “Boots” played over the credits at the end and we didn’t get to see the sexy car wash scene. I have no idea what I meant by that. The Nancy Sinatra song? Wha? I suppose I could look all that up, but someone will know, so I’m not going to bother.

I really miss when my online writing friends blogged instead of blopped on Facebook. FB is junk food for writers ~ and not even the good junk food like tacos or Oreos, but the worst junk food like those skinny yucky pretzels. You can sit there for hours and eat a million of them and you’ll never be satisfied, only thirstier and thirstier.

  2. Facebook is junk food? Oh, yes. Totally.

    I used to have long discussions in email with friends who lived far away, enjoying the intimacy that revelation without immediate feedback can create. I’m finding that blogging is calming and comforting. Getting my thoughts down in several complete sentences and in several complete paragraphs is a healthy, multi-course meal that sustains for days.

  3. I wrote a really long response just now, but then, right before I was almost done, I accidentally clicked on the wrong section of my smartfoon… so it all went “poof.”

    I hate when that kind of thing happens.


  4. This has nothing whatsoever to do with any of of what I originally wrote, that accidentally went “poof” — but here’s a quick summary of my life vows:

    Day 8478 — Day-counting Vow

    Day 9342 — Marriage Vow

    Day 11300 — Entrepreneurial Vow

    Day 11575 — Billionth Second

    Day 18280 — Art Vow

    Day 19780 — Complaints Vow

    Day 20478 — Today’s count.

    I just think it’s funny.


  5. Selective memory…another benefit of aging?
