Are you pondering what I'm pondering?


Lately some "friends" have been asking me why I write my blog? They don't understand why I obsess about writing something I don't get paid for, I don't get laid from, I basically don't get anything "perkish" out of, but still I sit and write and write and ...well, you get the picture.

It's not an ego thing, although c'mon I am documenting blips of my life. I describe it as practice for my writing career, which it most definitely is. And it requires that I have discipline, because wanting to update my blog keeps me writing on a regular basis. But these answers are still biting at me, the way I bite at my nails on a regular basis. Why, Why, Why must I write this blog all the time?

I don't really have an answer, except that well, in addition to the two aforementioned reasons, I really, truly do enjoy simply writing about nothing. Since I'm one of those people who talks about nothing on a regular basis, and was recently reminded by someone who does the same that I should learn to cut down on my ramblings, I find this is an outlet to ramble on and not actually offend anyone with my scratchy, husky, no I don't smoke cigarettes, pack a day sort of drole.

So. Why do I write my blog? Because I want to. That's not the best reason...but for now, it's the only one I got.

I will never watch Goodfellas again. I think I'm having some sort of past life regression. I hate loud noises, explosions, firecrackers, gunshots, bombs, balloons popping, blood...things like that..and I couldn't stand the goryness that is "Goodfellas." So, now I'm thinking...I must have somehow been involved with the mafia in a past life. I must have somehow been killed (I'm thinking by a gunshot) in this past life, and while I don't remember more than this...this explains why I've always been terrified of big noises...but I don't think I was ever afraid of the mafia...really...until now...
