I’m not very good, am I?
Been a little lax on this blogging lark lately.
Believe me when I say, the intention was there, but the flesh was very, very weak.
Every night as I sat on my train home from work, I would think to myself: Yep, tonight I will catch up on my comments, make a new post and see what everyone else is up to. And then safe in the knowledge that this is what I was going to do, five minutes later I would find myself slumped half asleep against the train window, so from the outside I resembled one of those stick on Garfields that you would normally see looming back at you from some car windscreen in the mid nineties.
Don’t hate me for this. I love reading comments, I love reading new blogs, it’s just at the moment I’m soooooooooooooooooooooooooo bloody tired. It’s not just the fact that I am now back in the rat race, but my new job is incredibly full on (in a fun way) and by the end of the day all I have the energy to do is crawl home, run a bath, have some dinner, and then decide if the insomnia is going to keep me awake for most of the night.
Things are going really well at the moment. I have settled in pretty well in the job and feel that i am slowly getting to grips with it. I have already got someone into work, which was a brilliant feeling, especially when they told me and I could see how happy this person was. So the desire to get more results like this is strong, which is only a good thing I guess?
The team I work with are brilliant, though seeing as I am the only male in the group; I was worried this might be a problem at first. But I have been made to feel really welcome, and by some kind of social osmosis, I am now technically one of the girls. I know all the new fashions, all the best make up tips, and next week everyone is coming over to mine so we can have a Sex in the City marathon and eat ice cream whilst talking about boys, and then finish the night off by having a pillow fight in our negligees (this is what you ladies do during slumber parties, right?).
All in all though things slowly seem to be moving in the right direction for me for the first time in ages. And this pleases me immensely. But that still doesn’t excuse the tardiness in my blogging or replying to those kind enough to leave a comment.
So, in order to address this, I thought I might spread a little love.
I’ve been doing this for about six months now. And during that time, I have stumbled across some little gems of blogs that maybe some of you may not have seen before. So I would like to point you in their direction. Seriously, these are some brilliant writers and if you get a chance, pop on over, have a look and then click on that follow button. You seriously won’t be disappointed.
First up is aladdinsane12 at She Don't Make False Claims. She first popped over and commented on my porn post, leaving the comment of “You had me at meathole" It was at this point that I knew we would get along. I am always interested to see what her mind will throw up next. Always funny, always interesting. Go check her out.
Next is Millions of Atoms Man at Millions of Atoms. To say I am envious of him is an understatement. This is one seriously funny individual and will often leave you scratching your head and wondering where the hell he gets it from.
If you are ever feeling a tad down and need a quick pick me up, go and say Hi to Jacque at A Quirky Girls Thoughts. She is like a walking form of prozac and you will leave her site with a smile on your face and a new found love for the world. Seriously, she is that good.
If you like your humour a little rough and ready, go check out Mr Tony Spunk at Lounging Around With Tony Spunk. No topic is safe from this very funny writer and he always gives us an impressive look into his own life, his loves, and some of the very scary ladies that he has encountered on his travels. Apparently there was once an altercation with a six foot transvestite called Trudy, but he doesn’t really like to talk about it.
I am quite new to Kato and Pandora's Box but what I have read so far I love. She really has an ability to draw you in to her world and has a perfect warm writing style that is like sinking into a nice bath. Plus how can you not love someone who loves Ghostbusters as much as she does? Pop over and say hello, she will make you feel really welcome.
And last but no means least, the lovely Miss Overthinker at Life Uncensored. I’ve been reading Miss OT’s blog for a while now and she has shared some hard times, but some good as well. She has sometimes mentioned that she doesn’t believe herself to be much of a writer, I think that when you go over and visit and actually read some of her stuff, you will see for yourself that this is the biggest pile of steaming donkey poo going. She is a fantastic writer who can make you feel like she is actually having a conversation with you, rather than reading words on a screen. I always look out for her next post when I’m on here.
So that was a few little personal sites that I love visiting and thought others might like to check out as well. If you do go over there, tell them I said hello (though seeing as I haven’t visited anyone in ages, they might just go “Who?”).
So to round off, I’m sorry for being a crap blogger. I will try to address this best I can. But thank you to anyone who has visited and commented, I do read them, I do love them, I will do better.
So until next time.
I’m high fiving you all.
