better than nothing?

It's quiet. TOO quiet. Is it just me, or is the blog world in general in a bit of a slump? I look at Surreally and at Bad Sam, two rather large group blogs, and I see that in the last three days, out of thirty three total authors, exactly two have posted. I'm not raising that total, since I'm also the only one who posted at Surreally.

Maybe everyone's life is too great right now and they have no time to post? Or maybe life is sucking for all of us, that's also a possibility.

Take my life: yesterday, while taking out the trash, I broke a bottle. And of course I stepped on a rather large piece of glass, large enough that it took me three tries, tugging at it while standing on one foot in my backyard, to get it out. Limped back into the house, trailing copious quantities of blood. Got a paper towel for the floor and stood on it because I was also cooking dinner, and I have no bandaids.

Chris gets home, makes up a bandage for my foot (oh, how sweet, right?), eats the dinner. Note that we have ongoing issues with him refusing to ever go to the store under any circumstances. We have this conversation:

me: [summing up the conversation up to this point] Ok, so in spite of my foot, you want me to go to the store, get munchies and cigarettes for you, pay for them, even though you had the car all day and you've messed up my seats and mirrors just to drive three blocks to work?

him: Yeah.

me: [has minor conniption fit]

him: Well, I won't bug you for sex.

me: Done! [scampers off to the store. Well, perhaps scampers is too strong a word, more like, hobbles happily]

So there it is, the sad and sorry state of affairs that is my life. As far as posts go, is this better than nothing? I can only hope.

you know, it does my heart good to read this exchange, especially so soon after valentine's day, to remind me that being alone isn't so bad after all. [sorry, kd - you really have my sympathy. and i hope your foot gets better soon.]

1. Dump his ass - now

2. I look at Surreally and at Bad Sam, two rather large group blogs, and I see that in the last three days, out of thirty three total authors, exactly two have posted um, I think the fact that you actually took time to tally that up means you need to try and get out a bit more :)
