I'm like a crotchety old man these days...

crotchety old man

Except that I'm a 41, (OK almost 42), year old woman with horrendous disc problems and no uterus.  But enough about me.  This is my first blog so I am not going to get too deep here, just want to get my feet wet and test out these bloggy waters. 

I live in the northeast and we are having the most brutal winter in history; I can't remember a worse one.  Yeah there was the Blizzard of '78, but I was a kid, so the word brutal was replaced with the word AWESOME!  Anyway, I was talking with a friend about how I can't take it anymore and I would be so much happier if I could just afford to have a lobotomy - nothing would ever bother me again - I could sit around smiling and drooling and life would be grand!

Alas, I can only afford to write a blog and try and release some of the crazy from my brain that over thinks everything and is only amused now by hearing about how we are getting another 6-10 inches of snow, on top of the 5 feet we already have!  Ha ha ha ha ha.... insanity can be fun, sometimes, mostly never though....

I used to say that living in New England during the winter built character; well, I am chock full of character and am ready to move someplace warm and tropical. I can dream can't I?
Splendid then...


  1. I just watched a show about the Kennedy's and the old man Joe Kennedy had his prettiest daughter get a lobotomy. It ruined her brain. Welcome to blog world and don't get a lobotomy, unless you want to sit in a chair and stair at the floor all day...forever.

  2. Thanks. I heard some of that on NPR. I will stick to blogging for now, although staring at the floor all day does sound kind of tempting!

  3. Yeah, I second that. Lobotomies = Bad. You're better off seeking an escape via gasoline huffing or hard drugs. At least that way you can come back when you're done. Sure, you'll be without a few brain cells, but at least you'll have a brain thats mostly in tact. So, you know, by comparison - I'd say drugs are a win. (But in any other comparison, I'd probably draw a slightly different conclusion. Just so you know ; )
