The Daily Grind Has Stolen My Soul (And My Personality)

Erm, so I might deserve a little kick in the ass.

I don't even want to look at when the last time I posted on this blog was, because I know that I'll get that look on my face that people get when they know they should have been doing something, but they chose to eat a tub of ice cream have a dance party in their living room sit and feel sorry for themselves do other stuff instead... You know what I'm talking about.

While all of you are far too fabulous to be burdened with my excuses, I'm afraid you have to hear them anyway.  Yes, that's right folks, I'm doing the ol' "Hey y'all, sorry I haven't blogged in a millionty years and let me tell you how busy and important I am so that you are aware of why I've been an ass for the last two months and disappeared, leaving you only with some stupid post about the evil squirrels that populated my window well for a couple of hours.  HAHA, SORRY!!!"  Yes, one of THOSE posts.

So, here are my excuses, listed in order of most to least annoying:

1. I am a working woman, y'all -- and I don't mean that positively.

Seriously folks, I don't know how all of you work, maintain your sanity a blog, a social life, and still manage to eat a few meals a day without going off the deep end!  By the time I get home from work for the day, I feel like doing nothing but staring off into space, drinking a lot of booze, and/or slapping myself in the face (not necessarily in that order).

All work and no play makes Bi an extremely maaaaaaaaaaad girl!

2. I moved into a teeeeeeeeeeeeny tiny apartment, which, as many of you know, can be a time consuming process.  I didn't realize how much crap one needs to survive until I tried to cram it all into my tiny hole of an apartment, which has seriously resulted in like a billionty trips to and from my hometown to the metro area.

One of those trips included my dear kitty, an experience which probably warrants a blog post in itself.  Let's just say it resulted in tufts of fuzzy hair flying around the vehicle, cranking the music up to drown out the howls of a traumatized feline, and a near homicide that evening as I had to get up several times to yell at comfort the damn thing in it's hour of need.

If only my actual kitty was this adorable.

3. I had no internet.

Well, that's not entirely true.  I have internet on my phone, but evidently my fingers are too fat to write legible messages in a timely manner, so that wasn't really an option for blog posting.  Some of you might have been following my boring random tweets about my activities, but those mostly included highly insightful observations about reality TV and 80's fashion trends.

It should be noted here that the happiest moment in my adult life came last night, when the cable guy finally hooked up my DVR AND my internet, and I was finally reconnected with the world.  Of course, if I'm being honest, the DVR was responsible for the bulk of my happiness, because what in the world am I going to blog about besides TV now that I do NOTHING other than work?!!?

4.  Before this move, I was seriously driving over three hours a day to get to/from work.  And, for the uninformed, patience is NOT one of my many virtues, so by the time I got home my sense of humor usually had fizzled away in a puddle of tears.

Oh, it wasn't all that bad.  Not all the time, anyway.

Anyway, I'm back now, and I'm going to try to create some funny stories out of my extremely bland life for you, so just keep an open mind.

Now, if you don't mind, Tyra Banks and that whole "dirty hair" look thing are beckoning me, and I simply must know who is still in the running for America's Next Top Model!


Melbourne on my mind said...

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay, you're back in the land of the bloggy! We missed you!

Boo to work being exhausting and the teeny apartment and the stressful kitty. Now if you'll excuse me, I have a busy afternoon of unemployment planned *sigh*

Glad you're back! xx
PS. Least interesting comment of EVER. Sorry...

Yay Glad you're back! I wrote 2 very similar posts to this not so long ago, except my apartment isn't fun-sized, and it was two insane yappy dogs. So when do i get apartment pictures?

Also the cable guy was here for 2 hours hooking up my cable cause time warner's server was down. But it was still the best moment ever.

I've just been sitting by my computer WAITING FOR YOU TO POST! I'm just kidding, kind of, but glad you're back to the blog! I miss your real life self too, glad you are all moved in! Maybe we can hang out soon, and not in a damn hospital.

Bianca! You are back! Back by dope demand! ;)

Oh, i know most definitely what you are going through. We are apart of the working masses now, There is no way around it. Just hang in there, it'll get better. Good to have you back in the blogosphere :)

I don't know what it is about moving, but that is the FASTEST way to go on a blog fast. I didn't blog for like three months when I moved. What's crazy is that you experience all these crazy moving shenanigans (heavy furniture! carpet stains! crazy neighbors!), so you have TONS of blogging material...but I'm thinking we all say to ourselves, "Yeah, I could blog about that...or I could actually unpack the BILLION BOXES STACKED UP HERE..."

Glad you're back!

Shelly said...

Welcome back! I just checked your blog yesterday to see if my reader was messing up!

Lorraine said...

Missed you! Thought you might've been dead! Employeed is similar but with more money and ability to feed yourself, so there is that.

Wow, glad to see you blogging again!

When you have a full-time job, we don't expect you to post all the time. I'm unemployed so I blog all day, but when you're making the moolah you have more important things going on. It's nice to see you, and I'm looking forward to reading some funny stories :)

Aw, congratulations on the apartment! I'm so excited for you!!

Getting DVR and internet set up is always the happiest day ever. Fuck electricity, GIVE ME MY INTERNETS.
