Once upon a time I swore I would never have a blog. Because everyone had them, that’s why. Because I had a journal or a weblog but not a blog. What a dumb word. It sounds like a bodily function. Ugh I will never use it. Boy I can be a snot.
Aaand that was slightly more than 8 years ago (and now we now how long it takes me to become assimilated) because here we are; I can say blog without having to spit on the ground (so many more friends do I have now that I have stopped spitting on the ground) (no I never really spit on the ground, but I did roll my eyes and we all know what that means)(sometimes it just means that I’m looking for the word in my brain and the best way to see it is by rolling my eyeballs) and there is a new word that sticks in my craw: Vlog. Short for video blog, I guess. Vlog. V and L just don’t go together but whatever, it’s just a hybrid word, the point is, following is one video of me talking because these women on twitter were doing it so I did it too and yes, I might just follow them off a bridge if they tweeted a good reason first.
Cheryl did it. Marcy did it. Ginger did it. Mmeperpetua did it but her file wouldn’t load so she’ll just have to leave her link in the comments. Jen did it. A lot of other people I don’t know probably did it. (Let’s do it. Let’s fall in lovvvve.)
I missed the grandparent question because I was distracted by Fresco who had just come in from playing outside. Meddling kids!
