Ten Reasons I'm Not Posting Today

  1. I've decided not to have a Monday this week and to have an extra Sunday instead.
  2. I haven't posted for two days now, and I hate to lose momentum like that.
  3. I haven't had any sugar today at all. My brain is mean and scary without sugar. Don't want to go in there.
  4. Because I can't blog from the bathtub. Well okay, can't is kind of a strong word. Don't have a high enough mortality threshold to blog from the bathtub, then.
  5. Because I'm only half way through this list and I'm already getting distracted. Yes you are a silly kitty. Yes you are!
  6. This all goes on the internet, you know. People can, like, see everything I write here. Ooh! Gives me the oogie woogies!
  7. Because if I write a post I'll have to write a title.
  8. Time is money, I'm not getting any younger you know, and he who laughs last is lost... wait... okay I don't actually know that one but I think you see where I'm going with this.
  9. Because lists are trendier than posts. Can I be popular now please? I can wear tight jeans if it'd help! Well okay, can is kind of a strong word.
  10. Because when I started this list I don't even remember how long ago I thought it would be easier than a full post, didn't I? When actually if I'd just written about the creepy old man in the waiting area at my mechanic's like I'd originally planned I'd be long finished and eating fudge while my toes pucker in a bubble bath by now, wouldn't I? But I'm just too stubborn to admit when I'm wrong and have to keep paddling the damned sinking ship anyway, don't I?

I've been noticing a lot of bloggers hopping on the "list trend" - why am I always the last to the party???? I have yet to do a decent list post....

It is a good thing you didn't post today- especially not in list format ;-)

Brian Miller said...

oh you can blog in the tub...just be very careful...

blognut said...

You can totally blog in the tub from your iPhone.

Yes, you can.

Julianna Cannon said...

Yours is the kind of humor I want to kiss on the mouth.

Arizona Mamma said...

I feel this way often...and I would so rather be eating fudge.

TheFrogBag said...

Lists are the cool thing now? Why do I always miss out on the cool thing? I'm sitting here watching old episodes of the Johnny Cash Show. I'm still stuck at cool from before I was even born.

HalfAsstic.com said...

Bwahahahaha! Okay, Okay! You've convinced me! You should definitely skip posting today! Heh! ;-)

Why can't you blog from the bath?

*tap tap*

*splash*

It's not that difficult, as long as you keep the power cable out of the water.

*dddddddddzzzzzzsssssth*

Crap.

Ten reasons I'm not commenting today: (1) Don't feel like it (2) Comments are so last year (3) Who reads them anyway? (4) I've probably misunderstood the post (5) Someone's probably said it before (6) My comment's number 51 and nobody's going to get that far (7) It's bound to be full of typos (8) I'm having a bad-comment day (9) I'm not commenting on any blog where X comments (10) I just can't think of the absolutely perfect, knock em all dead, effortlessly witty comment.

What creepy old man in the waiting area at the mechanic's? Oh damn, now I've commented.

You are one of the funniest bloggers out there. I read you first this morning and you started my day with a laugh the lasted the length of the list. (I'm alliterative like that!)

Secretia said...

The first two reasons are perfect for me, i need the extra Sunday, and sugar is heaven!

Buckeroomama said...

LOL!! I love how you created an extra Sunday! :)

Tabor said...

Lists or not your posts are fun and interesting.

Keyona said...

Think of how great the week would be if we all decided NOT to have a Monday. *sigh* :)

Robin said...

I think Im going to go make a list of lists...I need that...I liked your list...except for blogging in the tub..that I can and would do..minus the electrical cords..

Eva Gallant said...

Did I hear there was fudge??? Chocolate fudge, by any chance???
I need me some fudge!!!!

SmartBear said...

thanks for making me laugh girl! I love me a good meaningful list!

Raelene said...

I'm not gonna lie...I like lists :) Not for every blog of course, but a nice bullet list every now and again is fun to write. :)

Erika said...

Great list. Really makes me wonder why they haven't invented more waterproof things specifically for the tub....oh, look something sparkly....

Cathryn said...

BWAAAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

It was a funny list! I'll come back when I'm through laughing!

Jazz said...

Oh this was good. It was, it was. I'm going to link to it so I don't have to blog today either.

BLOGitse said...

cheers from Cairo!

cabin + cub said...

if you get one of those bath trays, you could totally blog from the tub... just make sure the tray is wide enough to hold the plate of fudge too. ;)

e said...

This had me laughing...Eat all the fudge in the bath you want and blog from the iphone in the tub...

Of course, I've not blogged in two days because I've no list and nothing wonderful...hitting a dry patch here, and I've no fudge and can't use a tub...Maybe I'll blog from the neighbors hot tub, assuming I can climb over their fence...oh wait...the wheelchair is kind of a problem...

Guillaume said...

I have discovered that Mondays usually feel like Monday even when you are not working. I can't feel like it's a holiday.

JenJen said...

Oh I have a grocery list....Does that count?
And?
A week's worth of sundays sounds good to me.

Candice said...

Someone REALLY needs to invent a waterproof computer. Seriously.

buffalodick said...

Eat two Snickers bars and call me in the morning...

Akelamalu said...

Lists are a lot harder to do than posts!

Thanks for stopping by and taking the time to comment. I love the wallpaper on your blog. :)

furiousBall said...

if you were spongebob and i was patrick, i'd totally let you come over and hang out under my rock and watch my TV made out of sand

Sarah P said...

But, it's Tuesday now!

Fragrant Liar said...

HEH! I thought you said, at first, you didn't have a high morality threshhold, and I was all like, hey, me neither! Now I'm feeling sorta less than. Thanks.

bernthis said...

good for you for not writing that blog post and sticking to your guns.

Elizabeth Patch said...

thanks for stopping by my blog and helping make my SITS feature day special! you are one funny kitty. I think I need to go make a list now...

Everyday Goddess said...

Copy that, eating fudge in a bubble bath.

secret agent woman said...

I find lists sometimes harder than free-form posts.

And me, I kind of like a big glass of wine with my chocolate in the tub.

♥ Braja said...

I'm averse to doing anything other bloggers are doing, so I'd encourage you to blog in the bath....

Conquer The Monkey said...

time off from blogging is a good thing, take your tub time and drink some vino!

Rebecca said...

Thanks for the comment on my post. Glad you found me so that I could find you! Loved this list!

Japa said...

Nice neat list. Just gave me an idea to try one.

Tara said...

Hi, Tattytiara! Thanks for visiting my blog. When I do lists, I feel like I HAVE to list at least ten things. Where'd that rule come from anyway? We should be able to do lists of like two. That'd be a lot easier. Haha.

Megan said...

I'm good at lists. I once listed a hundred things and only one of them was a whine about the list. :)

{ Persis Shah } said...

hahaha this is absolutely cheeky and wonderful! i love this post...esp no.8! you have a greaat sense of humor which outbeats skinny jeans any day =)

have a lovely day.

~persis.

LadyFi said...

Very funny! Please don't blog in the bath - but do eat fudge there!

Eternally Distracted said...

I kinda get the feeling that since writing this you have tried the blogging from the tub... fingers crossed the electrician has not been called!

The Blue Zoo said...

I SO want to blog from the bathtub. My husband, who knows my klutzy ways, said Hell NO!!

Acting Balanced Mom said...

Thanks for visiting my blog on your time off! I'm also one of the last to join trendy blog phenomenon like lists... or schedules or anything akin to routine, too much of that in my life already - but I love your list - minus the fudge since I'm allergic - and would totally blog in the tub if I could get a waterproof laptop... heck I'd do everything from the tub ...

hip chick said...

well...if you are not posting then I am not commenting. LOL

tony said...

The Tub Is Listing!

Stephanie Faris said...

Looks like you didn't skip blogging, after all!

Do people really blog in the tub?

JoeyRes said...

I especially liked the oogie woogies and "hate to lose momentum like that".

Great list. Sorry it took so much effort!

Kate said...

My brain must be hiding out with yours. I gave up sugar for Lent. Loved the list.

"And so our stories go..." said...

How funny are you! I love funny blogs in the morning. what a great way to smile in the morning.
Thanks.
Mary

Yankee Girl said...

Lists really are cool.

I once feel asleep in the bathtub and then didn't wake up until I realized I couldn't breath because I sank under the water. I haven't taken a bath since.

Nessa said...

You are very goofy but I will be stealing some of your excuses.

otin said...

So you are writing a post saying why you are not going to post? Something does not add up here!

Ronda Laveen said...

But I am so glad you kept paddling instead of admitting that you are wrong. Very funny. But, I have to admit that my kinky side is piqued by the creepy old man at your mechanic's.

Debbie said...

I think not having a Monday is a brilliant idea! I'm going to copy you next week:)

Michele said...

I could not love this list more.
Cracking me up, Girl!!!!

I like Brian's idea of bloggin' in the tub - that would fun and creepy at the same time. :)
