? by Tracy Crisp | Apr 27, 2010 | old school blogging | 21 comments Dear interwebs If you were me, what would you do? Yours in anticipation of wise and revelatory counsel tc 21 Comments mary on April 27, 2010 at 9:09 am Since your category is “being” , is it too trivial to advise just to “be” for a while? From bitter experience – if I overthink things I ALWAYS come up with the wrong answer. Of course you may just be asking a question of the rhetorical kind, in which case ignore the foregoing! Reply ThirdCat on April 27, 2010 at 9:16 am yes, I sometimes think overthinking is a curse Reply franzy on April 27, 2010 at 9:19 am I would skip over to fmylife.com Those kids are phkn HILARIOUS. Reply Deborah on April 27, 2010 at 10:38 am I would sing. Reply fifi on April 27, 2010 at 12:20 pm Add Olive green, and a little turquoise. It is a surprisingly uplifting combination in conjunction with venetian Red. Works for me. Reply meli on April 27, 2010 at 12:41 pm i would take a sick day. or two or three. totally solves the problem of no time in the house to yourself. i’m on sick day no. 3 as we speak and things are beginning to look a lot rosier… also my exam questions are finally getting written. Reply SQ on April 27, 2010 at 2:26 pm I’d wait awhile. Reply ThirdCat on April 27, 2010 at 4:00 pm Do you think I’ve got waiting skills? (I’m not being smart, I really have been thinking about this a lot lately, about patience and waiting and sitting quietly and so on – I always used to think it was something I wasn’t too bad at, but now I’m not so sure) Reply The Coffee Lady on April 27, 2010 at 3:44 pm Eat chocolate. Reply ThirdCat on April 27, 2010 at 4:01 pm Done. Also, I see wine in my not-too-distant future Reply blackbird on April 27, 2010 at 11:10 pm Sometimes, I find, that if I do nothing, things work themselves out. Reply ampersand duck on April 28, 2010 at 5:17 am Damn, Coffee Lady beat me to it. Long, cool walks in autumn air. Sorry. More chocolate. Reply Zoe on April 28, 2010 at 7:15 am I think you should have an affair with a much younger man. Reply ThirdCat on April 28, 2010 at 8:23 am Am I so transparent? Reply Mindy on April 28, 2010 at 10:24 am I think you should use Zoe’s line as the first line in a new book. I would like to read that book. Now I’m worrying that I’m adding to the pressure. I’m also worrying that I can’t seem to write blog comments that aren’t all about me. Reply ThirdCat on April 28, 2010 at 10:26 am But my blog posts are all about me, so why shouldn’t your comments be all about you? Reply Mindy on April 29, 2010 at 7:15 am Well it is your blog, so being about you shouldn’t really be an issue. But I feel like when I make a comment about me it’s like I’m saying “No, it’s all about me!” which is incredibly narcissistic. Or something. Reply SQ on April 28, 2010 at 11:36 am I think you have very good waiting skills. Seriously. Reply Zoe on April 29, 2010 at 2:41 pm But Mindy, this is how I hear news of you, which is a good thing. Reply Mindy on April 30, 2010 at 3:02 am Right, that’s it. I’m going to take Third Cat’s lead and blog for a month at Blog on the Landscape but I’ve wordpressed it and then neglected it so I will have to update everything first. I hope it will have me back. Oh look, another comment all about me! Reply ThirdCat on April 30, 2010 at 10:04 am see you there…but don’t worry about updating it first or you’ll never get around to it…I mean see my blogroll over there on side? No? That’s exactly what I mean. You can either blog or you can have an up to date blogroll. You can’t have both. Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
