The Great Turtle

I'm a pretty horrible person. I'm sure this isn't much of a surprise to you two, but I came to the realization recently that I'm a particularly horrible person. Let me explain.


My brother's birthday was a month ago and I swore to him that I'd cook him a birthday dinner. Which I promptly became too busy to cook and subsequently forgot about. Well, he brought it up. And even though it took him 3+ weeks to have me over for my birthday dinner, I have officially passed him; he said to me "Yay - I'm not the worst sibling anymore!". It's nice when you make others feel good about themselves.


Mentioning feeling good about yourself... in the same conversation, I decided to ask him if he still reads this shit I call my blog, partially because I was curious, but also because I wondered whether or not I could count him as one of my readers. You know for those times when I refer to "you two", maybe I could say "you three".


His response? My posts are "a bit long-winded". Fuck. He said that they are funny and interesting, but they go on for far too long for "someone who doesn't read". I'm not sure if I should be angry at him for calling me boring, or if I should feel pity because he obviously has adult-onset-ADD.


And that (^) is my attempt at a short post. I feel like there's so much left unsaid.


Also - I've been thinking I need a better name/address for my blog. Even though I thought I was clever when I came up with Ramdon Ranblings... a quick Google search indicated that I was not clever at all. So, I wonder if another name is more suitable. What about "Long-winded Sally"? Or "Heather Talks"? Or "I like stuff". Or "Things are cool". Or something else greater than or equally as cool. Think about it and let me know.

  1. You know what sucks about Google? When you think you have a unique idea that makes you feel all warm and special, Google will glibly inform you that tons of other people thought of it first and have even better ideas on top of that.

    This response comes from me independently coming up with "Verbal Diarya" on the spot as a suggestion for a name. Then I Googled it and was sad.
