I thought I was so clever with my laundry post the other day. Soooo witty, me. There was much self-congratulatory re-reading and the calling of groupies to say, "Did you read it yet?", Then as I cruised around the Internet looking at the infinite number of "Mommy Blogs" out there I realized that laundry is one of those topics that everyone blogs about. Nobody manages it well and it's only funny if your laundry room is clean. Sissy thought it was hilarious - nobody else even smiled.
There are even blogs with laundry in the title. One is "I should be folding laundry" http://ishouldbefoldinglaundry.com/. Now she is funny. And "Rocks in my Dryer" http://rocksinmydryer.typepad.com/shannon/ has the comedic timing of Lucille Ball on paper!! These are gals that know what they are doing in this medium. Their posts are sharp and smart and FUNEEEE!
However, my very favorite blog has nothing to do with being a mom. It's called " Sit home and Rot" written by Manny, who tells me he is originally from Chicago. He blogs about celebrity news. I read it every day for insight about how funny I would be if I was a man instead of a role model. He uses foul language in the most delightful ways. Endlessly entertaining but only if you can stomach his use of colorful phrasing (like, "Try again, dick lick). http://www.sithomeandrot.com/celebs/.
Now, put me on your favorites list so that you will be able to experience my growth as a blogger from such humble, prosaic (look it up, bookworm) beginnings.
