Quick and Shameless Self-Promotion

I like to think my blog slowly gains hits (and when I say slowly, I mean tortuga!)  I’m not sure whether they are from friends or strangers as few tend to leave comments.  It is also noticed that while I love my blog posts (and see them as probably the more interesting to read),  I can’t help but feel my poetry, which was the original purpose of my blog, goes unnoticed.  I do not post them in the main blog feed as I consider them more fixed than fleeting thoughts and events.  And they have proven themselves consistently relevant time and again.  In any case, they can be found at the top of the page under “POETRY” and are listed in chronological order, though the chronology spans over a decade!  Anywho, they’re there, so read them if you like.  K, thanks.

Unoriginal Name

Apparently my blog does not have the most original name….

There’s another blog with said name… here

There’s a photo studio with said name… here

And a page with a nice quote from Grumpy Old Menhere

As a matter of fact, my blog does not even show up in the first 15 pages (I stopped looking after that) if you google “Life Happens”.  How sad for me:(  Perhaps I need a more original title. Any suggestions? Feel free to comment!

Birthday Conversations

One of my friends has a blog that is made up of email conversations between her and her friend/roomate.  I was reading it the other day and started laughing because I have a friend that I share similarly hilarious long messages with.  The best is when you can be witty and humorous about anything in your life.  I loved the idea of this blog (I suppose it’s somewhat like the text version of a reality show) so I thought I’d test it out with a post.  The only back story behind this is that all of these messages took place on my birthday, the quotes are funny enough to need no explanation and no explanation will keep them from being incriminating.

-“I just wanna hang out in the pub and be like ‘its my bday!'”
– ” ‘…bow to me!!'”

– “you didn’t use him; you gave him a treat!”
-“Like a puppy!”
-“Now what are you going to train him to do?? …try to use your powers only for good.”

“The photo lady was tryin to get pix and I was like ‘nah’ so she was like ‘how about w him’? So I took a pic w some cute young photo guy named pierre. I was like ‘are you pimping your people out?’ she said she needed to get more tall young men working.”

“we don’t need tbs, real life is filled with ‘characters’!”

“Hope potter soaked your rocks. Or rocked your socks…thanks a bundle, predicive text”

“I only got cheek kisses from the giraffes this time.”
