Reasons Why There Have Been So Few DTC Summer Posts

At the end of June, after missing a few days of posting, I announced I was on summer hours.  That pretty much meant that I could do whatever I wanted.  Luckily, I do not depend on the income from this blog ($0) to afford food or pay my mortgage.

Here are some reasons why I have been slow with the posting.

1.  You are not the boss of me.  I can post whenever I want to.

When you tell me what to do, it's bossy.
When I tell you what to do, it's helpful.

2.  Absence makes the heart grow fonder.

3.  I am spending a lot time looking for my own 5-foot tall metal chicken.  I have already picked his name.  It's Raul Ibanez.  Not the Phillies one.  This Raul Ibanez is a metal chicken.  How would a metal chicken run for a fly ball in left field?  Clearly, it's a different Raul Ibanez.  I really like saying Raul Ibanez and really want that chicken.  The Party has only made a cursory effort to help me.  You see how I don't really have time for writing?

4.  My self-diagnosed Predominantly Inattentive ADD is currently winning against me.  It's a wonder I haven't already hit "post" and left you without the rest of the list or a closing of any nature.  Of course what you can't see is that I have left the post and checked Facebook and e-mail 17 times already and made a phone call.

5.  I have been trying to organize and purge crap in my house while it's summer and I have more time.  This keeps me very busy.  It takes a lot of work and energy to avoid the task if I am in the house or awake.  I have to constantly take naps and go out so I don't seem like I am just sitting around here loafing.

6.   There is not too much celebrity nonsense going on for me to write about.  Even Charlie Sheen seems to be on vacation from his World Tour of being a drug addled and/or sociopathic megalomaniac.  

7.  There is plenty of political  nonsense going on, but these people are so tiresome and wrong that I can hardly bear to listen to them, let alone comment on what they say and do.  I can't figure out if some of these politicians really believe their own crap, or they just want us to.

8.  There is nothing funny to write in regard to bathing suit season.  It's best if we all just suffer privately and silently and never speak of it.

9.  Summer is margarita season.  Enough said.

10.  Summer is also watermelon margarita season and blood orange margarita season and alcohol soaked fruit season.

11.  I am having a quiet contest with you.

12.  Okay, I really can't think of any more reasons why I haven't been writing.  Obviously, if I had tons to say, there would be a real post, wouldn't there?

Will be going to Virginia Beach for a few days with some girlfriends.  That should be lots of fun and be a wealth of material.

Please note that I have substituted actual content for an array of eye-pleasing colors for your viewing enjoyment.  You're welcome.


  1. No worries.
    I have been lazy with posting too since I got sucked in writing YELP reviews...

    I just panicked a few days ago that July might end without me posting ANYTHING, so I got off my a$$ and put something up each day since Wednesday. ;)

    Have fun at the beach.. I
    'll think of you when drinking Frodka tonight.. :P

  2. Mel, you have commented before, but I didn't realize you had a blog. Don't know how I missed it. Anyway, your post about the van is a riot. I was unable to follow or comment. If you fill me in, I'll go back.

    Enjoy your frodka. :)

  3. Thank you DTC. I have missed you sorely this summer but now that I have my DTC fix, I should be able to keep the DT's at bay for awhile. Have some fun at the beach ('cause you clearly haven't been having any fun all summer long -- well, maybe except for the marguerita part).
    PS. what is a frodka?

  4. and, ps., you're right. The Blogess is too funny. Wouldn't you love to run into her in Feeney's?

  5. I've been missing your posts, but I can understand how hard it is to find the key board with a margarita in one hand and drunken fruit in the other. Enjoy your time away!!!

  6. DTC:
    So, you can't follow my blog nor comment on the posts? That is weird. Can you try again?
    I checked with 2 different browsers while not being logged in with my Google account and both times I see the comments boxes as well as the button on the right to be able to follow...

    Frodka is Vodka + Fresca.
    Sometimes it is also called Joe Blow.

  7. DTC: If that doesn't work, you can always go to your Blogger Dashboard.
    Under "Reading List" - "Blogs I am following" click the "Add" button. A pop up will appear and you can manually enter the URL of the blog you want to follow. Then click the "Next" button and select if you want to follow publicly or anonymously.
    Click "Follow" to finish the process.

    (Does it show that I am a technical writer creating software documentation all the time? LOL)
