Balancing out the blog

Hey you guys, I've just realised that some apologies may be in order.

I don't know if you've noticed, but I do try to make the blog entries balance out, before we all come down with a case of the bitchhives. (What's that? You've never heard of them? They're pretty damn itchy, is all I can say. I always keep some DermAid and calamine lotion handy, but there is no cure, except a million dollars*.)

I try, oh, how I do try. Ideally, my posts would follow this kind of order:

Post 1: naughty
Post 2: nice
Post 3: a little mean
Post 4: nice
Post 5: kind of snarky
Post 6: uplifting
Post 7: G-rated funny

But most of the time, I end up with this:

Post 1: snark
Post 2: bitch
Post 3: meh
Post 4: snark-snark
Post 5: bitch-bitch
Post 6: smack talk
Post 7: here is a picture because my brain was empty today!
Post 8: bleah
Post 9: reference to porn
Post 10: mmm, food!

So, once again, my apologies!

Also, with the swearing. I'm sorry if you don't like it, I do talk this way in real life, though. And you may notice that I don't like to use the f**k word or the c**t word, not at all. MFC uses the F-word fairly liberally, and occasionally the C-word when he is engaging in macho-talk with the boys. This is fine, I don't mind. I accept that they are part and parcel of the free-speechifying society we live in.

However, not that I'm a prude, but I really dislike it when people use them in every single sentence, and loudly. It says, "Hello! I did not graduate from kindergarten and consequently do not have enough adjectives or nouns in my vocabulary." I feel like my brain cells are being tortured and my ears are going to bleed. It's like listening to the Chopper Read segments in the Ronnie Johns Show. I have to change the channel or leave the room when that part comes on, although the rest of the show cracks me up. Sigh, what a fragile little petal I am.

But the occasional b*tch, sh*t, and d*mn are OK.

Except around children.

* Meh, who am I kidding? All I'd do with a million dollars is go revenge-crazy, Count of Monte Cristo style.

It's all good an9ie. Blogging, in my honest opinion, is for 2 purposes.

1) Letting the world know how pissed off you are about something, and why / what could possibly be done.

2) Recording an event you'd like to remember and how you felt about it, in a way you can share. i.e. public diary.

I had my own blog for a very short time, where it was mostly comprised of bitching about my housemates antics and how they drove me insane. Unfortunately for everyone, I didn't tell many people about it, and by knowing that no-one was really reading it made me not bother to update it either.

Love your blogs, hope you keep continuing them just the way you do them now.

Cheers, RaZeR, it's good to get feedback like that. Now if only some other readers would delurk *coughKIMcough*

Anway, now I don't feel so bad about subjecting you all to so much bitchery :) It's a pity you stopped writing in your blog, dude, I'm sure it would have been pretty juicy reading!
