The Blog About Nothing

The cure for boredom is curiosity. There is no cure for curiosity. ~Dorothy Parker

So ... I was trying to think of what to blog about today, but my life just isn't that interesting. This morning, for some unknown reason, I was thinking about all those reality shows that follow people around in their day-to-day lives, and decided mine would be a flop.

Here is Marianne cursing at her computer.

Two hours later, Marianne takes the dog out to pee.

Fifteen minutes later, Marianne sweeps the floor and does the dishes.

One hour later, Marianne starts dinner.

Woo hoo! Pure excitement!

My friend, Judy, decided to help by giving me topics.

"Pets I've had and why I loved them"

Yeah, not going there right now... we're dealing with Dakota's best friend having cancer and just plain getting old. She's a 12 y.o. lab mix and every day with her is a blessing because we know there won't be many more. So, I'm not prepared to think of my own pets I've loved and lost right now.

"If I had a million dollars, I'd..."


There ... easy peasy and makes for a really short blog.

"Ways to Annoy People in the Checkout Line"

I'm usually the annoy-ee not the annoy-er, but my biggest pet peeve is screaming kids that are then pacified by the adult giving them whatever they're screaming for. GAH.

Okay, moving on...

"Things I feel neutral about."

Um.... nothing really. I tend to be pretty passionate about everything, whether I'm for or against.

Why live if you don't have passion?

So, I guess I have nothing to blog about today. Sorry folks.


What are some topics YOU can think of?


You Are the Middle Toe

You are naturally very aggressive and competitive. You go for what you want.

You like to get ahead, but there is nothing traditional about your approach to success.

You use your creativity and your wit to your advantage. You are a flexible thinker.

You have a lot of inner fire and strength. You harness your passion well.

Yep, mostly right!

You Are the Fourth Toe
You tend to be a cooperative and social person. You like being around others.
You are pretty attached to your friends and family... but only in a healthy way.

Love and relationships are the cornerstone of your life. People come first for you.
You are independent when you need to be, but you prefer not to travel solo. You like having your support system.

Pretty much.

I know my life would never make it on a reality show.

re quiz: got the same as yours and it's 80% accurate.

Have a good Saturday.

This reminds me of Seinfeld being the show about nothing so I guess you're in successful company.

LOL I'm the second toe. Given how mangled my second toe looks, that's pretty ironic.

Hmm, blog topics? Favorite book ever and why. Hmmm, Okay, that's all I've got. *g*
We're pretty boring too and the mileage the film crew would have to put in would pretty much cancel a show about us quickly. *G*

I received the same answer as your Mom. It's pretty accurate.

I hope you're having a terrific weekend!
