My video is still up after 24 hours.
You know, I'm thinking of maybe putting up a video in here every once in awhile. I don't particularly want to share my social security number and credit card information, but I'm trying to think of what the downside to being 'identified' on here is... because everything I can come up with is silly.
Like some horrid ex-boyfriend or evil twat from high school is going to look up infertility blogs and come across mine.... then what happens? They'd bring it up? They'd stick around? They'd send it to everyone on their mailing list to share? What exactly would that mean other than they have a creepy obsession with my uterus?
I dunno. Bug-eyes is uncomfortable in photos and videos, admittedly. But it drives me bonkers that every other knocked up celebrity has twins and yet there are around three I can think of that have openly talked about having fertility issues. I think they're chicken and wasting a perfectly good opportunity - and they're famous, so everyone would know about it. So maybe it's time to put my money where my mouth is.
I dunno. I'm thinking maybe inspired by the lovely Jenn, we should start doing some weekly/monthly video entry or something. (And I get that some have genuinely horrid ex-boyfriends/husbands or weird employment situations, so I'm thinking video or voice - like EmHart did over here). Thoughts? I just think maybe I want to be a crazy asshole that comes out of the infertility closet.
In other news I really should be picking stuff up right now as Kali is coming over to watch movies with me and my sad jaw. Instead, I'm writing here and wondering if there is a realistic way to talk her into watching a horror movie, and if there's any way I can watch them in October without wanting to go out and buy kit-kats. Too bad most are so famous in title - some of the preview mash-ups make them look so innocent.
And now to keep up with my writing prompts....
What is your favorite book?
No. I object. Too many. There is no winner.
I've read the Harry Potter books 8 million times. That woman's writing is flawless.
This summer I just read "The Perks of being a Wallflower" and loved it. It's now a movie which I must see soon. A particularly good read if you went to High School in the 90s, and were a bit weird.
My easy-read comfort book is "Like Water for Chocolate". Romance and recipe installments, totally fantastical and fairy-talesque, set in old Mexico. I've read it 10,000 times. Seriously - read if you haven't.
What is your current favorite band?
I am normally shit on 'current'. Although my puppy gets excited when I do my interpretation for her of Rihanna's "S&M".
I am, however, currently having a love affair with Otis Redding. On my favorite-for-cleaning Pandora station (just type in "harry belafonte" and poof - 20 minutes later your house is cleaned) the Otis Redding version of "stand by me" came up, which I had never heard, and have since been smitten.
Lately it has inexplicably been a lot of Otis Redding, Harry Belafonte, James Brown...So this fall I have the musical tastes of a charming 60 year old black man. How's that for current?
