Our first blogs
Because I can’t come up with anything original today, I am shamelessly ripping off my friend Secret Spanko, who just wrote a fun entry about first blog posts. He did some thorough research, looking back at several people’s first blog entries and commenting on the various types. I found it fascinating and thought I’d pick up the ball and continue with it here.
Among others, he mentioned my first entry here on Blogger, in which I was — what else? — bitching about something! This time, it was about how effed up MySpace was and why I moved my blog from there. However, he hadn’t seen my very first blog post from MySpace. Just for grins, I dug it up. It’s rather boring, but here it is in all its glory, from December 28, 2005:
Current mood: bored
I guess I have to start somewhere with this thing, huh? OK, what do you want to know? How about some random stuff.
I work from my home as a freelance proofreader. So I’m a nut for grammar and spelling. Right now, because of the freaking holidays, my business is dead… hence the bored mood.
I pride myself on my sense of humor and my quick wit. My father was a comedy writer and won five Emmys, so I like to think I inherited his funny genes.
Guilty pleasures: Hostess Sno-Balls (you know, those revolting things with the bright pink coconut and the marshmallow), old surf instrumentals, watching Dark Shadows DVDs (the original show, not that crappy remake).
Things I love: my boyfriend, animals, milk chocolate, good books and movies, intelligence and humor, rainy days, the Beatles, and a lot of other stuff I’ll think of later.
Things I hate: hot days, mornings, cottage cheese, tailgaters, tardiness, cell phone overuse, big noisy crowds, rap and hip-hop, the Capital One commercials with David Spade and that dorky fat guy, reality TV, and a lot of other stuff I’ll think of later.
What else… oh yeah. I’m a big OTK enthusiast, very much in the national spanking scene, and I’ve been in eight spanking videos. Ooooh, am I allowed to say that here?
I guess that’s enough for now. Happy hump day, everyone.
Don’t you love how I downplayed the spanking bit? It was MySpace, after all. I wasn’t sure how much I could talk about it. 😀 The one thing I miss from the MySpace blog format is the nifty little “current mood” indicator. Oh, and their built-in emoticons.
How about some others digging up their first blogs? We could make a meme out of it!
In other news, we had some more misadventures on FetLife this week, another flame war centered around our favorite malcontent, droning on and on once again about her thinly veiled contempt for the “pros.” It got ugly. It got snarky. And today, she finally erupted, bypassing her usual passive-aggressive approach and blasting us, calling us “pissy, petty, narrow-minded bitches” and “pathetic attention whores,” and saying that no one in the spanking video industry would ever be welcome at one of her parties. Oh, dear. Pardon me while I hang myself over that one. 🙂
John and I were planning to celebrate Valentine’s Day this weekend, but that is now on hold. Besides his relentlessly swelling knee, he caught a cold when he went to the HMO last week and hung around several sick people in the waiting room. (sigh) I will never hear the end of that! Anyway, we decided there’s no point in doing anything special when he is feeling so wretched, so we’ll do it the following weekend instead. It’s OK. It’s just a calendar date. As he pointed out, we’re each other’s Valentines year-round. ♥
Have a great weekend, y’all.
