Bloggers can be losers

Today is my blog's first birthday.

One year ago today I went to and in about 6 minutes and 12 seconds, the magic that happens on on this url three to four times a week--was first spat out into the blogosphere.

It all began with my friend Jennifer who was a devotee last summer to this now defunct NYC blog and urged me to check it out. I did, laughed at it a bit, and then thought to myself, "well fuck, I need to get me one of these things."

There were a few things at the outset that I swore I would not do. One was bore anyone with the mundane details of work--I'm not a bounty hunter or a sex surrogate so who really cares what I do, right? Second, I wasn't going to use my little corner of the internet to whine about boys. Lame. Correction. Extremely lame. I did break down though with this post once when I had gone way too long without . . . well, read it if you're curious. Now that's not to say that I haven't shared things with my fellow bloggers in one of our hilarious little email exchanges. If I wasn't sworn to secrecy many times over, I would have some top notch blog material. But I am a woman of my word.

So that left me with spinning yarns about boozing, laughing, and just living with this amazing city as a backdrop. Oh, and of course there's my occasional post about my hillbilly family and my disdain for our illustrious President.

I like making people laugh. I love people telling me I'm funny. My friend Kim told me she likes reading the blog to find out what's in my head. Brave girl. The thing is, I thought blogging would help me clear some of the stuff out.

And it does, but goddamn it, there's always new stuff creeping right back in.

If I'm not able to whine about boys on my blog, what am I going to write about?

Many happy returns.
