Dear World,

I have written, posted, and then deleted 2 3 4 5 6 posts in the last few days. More than a strong indicator of my present level of craziness (If I were a terror level, I would SO be Ernie), I know this is bad, bad, no-good blog manners and I humbly apologize.

Please forgive me.

I read what I write and realize that I am mumbling, ranting, nonsensical (and not in a lyrical James Joyce way). I realize that I wheelie across boundaries, use poor grammar, swipe at the people I love, gaze profoundly at my own navel, wallow and wallow some more in a pity party I am giving myself, and generally act a mallow-headed prat. And I forget to spell-check too.

I am no better in real life. Saturday night I rented "Kingdom of Heaven" and treated myself to Orlando Bloom in leather tights while eating a plate full of fattening pasta.

Sounded like a relaxing plan when I thought it up.

Turns out? Not so much.

I ended up screaming at the screen about the historical innacuracies of the film until my face turned pink. (No! Really! He was married, faithfully, to her STEPMOTHER! And Italian! And LEGITIMATE!).

My only defense is that I have, regrettably, lost my mind.

(And between you and me, I don't think it's coming back anytime soon.)

My only comfort is that I don't think anyone is watching.

Yes, spring is around the corner.

I have no words of widsom at all. I am completely in the dark when it comes to the posts you've written and deleted too as I don't have time to get online much these days and when I do by the time I get all of the blogs I want to read opened my husband has taken the laptop and turned it off.

I just wanted to let you know that I'm here and that your last post on one of my entries made me cry and I've been a total ass for not responding yet. I can blame the baby but really it's sleep deprivation. I feel the same way as you do as far as how posts come out. When I read them it all looks like crap and I comtemplate just not renewing my domain name when it comes up for renewal.

Sorry I've gone off on a tangent on your blog. Talk about bad blog manners!

Sounds like you need a different Orly Bloom movie. Pirates of the Caribbean? any of the Lord of the Rings?

And chocolate is much more comforting than pasta :)

Am a reader feeder addict. Some of us are watching. The good news? Most of us have been there, too.

Hang in, Elizabeth. Spring - and all the rebirth it implies - is just 'round the corner.

Hey Elizabeth. No words of wisdom here, just a pat on the shoulder. I hope it gets better soon. And don't feel bad about screaming at the tv, sounds like you were justified. :)

The thing with posting and then deleting is sometimes people who use news readers still see them, and feel your pain. Hope that once the transition is made your life will be much simpler and much happier.
Hope the cupcakes turned out well.

Me, I yell at my all-time favorite show, CSI (all 3 of 'em.) I mean, if they can get a positive ID of a killer out of the reflection in someone's eyes taken from a stoplight camera - why oh why was my job in printing and prepress so difficult? Where is this software that produces infinite resolution?!

I digress. I'm fortunate that in my own leap into financial ruin...er...career change, that I have studying to do. Which also makes me crazy, but I'm digressing again.

Come on over and I'll share the HUGE plate of fudge I made last night. It has nothing good in it, just fat and sugar, and more sugar. Then we can watch LOST and yell at the people to grow some hair! Lose some weight! Look like you're on a damn island!!!

Well, I noticed. I just didn't want to say anything. So long as you got our comments.
