For Me

We’ve all said it. This blog is mine. It is my thoughts or feelings or views of the moment. It is mine. If you don’t agree with it, don’t read it. I’m not going to go away just because you don’t like me. I don’t care.

Having said that, we all feel a bit conflicted, because somewhere in that tiny little nut of a brain there is a voice saying… but I want them to like me! Don’t shake your head, ’cause I know that happens to you, too. As much as we want to be our own people, we are still secretly thrilled when the comment number goes higher or the stat counter goes up and we get positive feedback for whatever witty or logical or heartwrenching or gutwrenching thing we’ve said today. We all do it.

I like to put your name over there… on the list… when I find your site and I like to read it. When I find someone who connects to a part of me. It makes it easier for me to get to you. That’s really all it is. A personal list of things I like to read or do or play with. It isn’t a popularity contest, no matter what anyone tells you. Really. Sure, I get excited when you put my site on yours… that’s just plain cool! …But, are you doing it because you like me, or because you feel obligated to return the favor?

Please say you like me.

Everyone wants to be loved and accepted. Or at least liked and accepted. I’m no different. This is my blog. This is my life, my views, my random mumblings out in space. They may not make a hill of beans difference in your life, but somewhere along the way I would like to think that my voice will be out there to be heard by my future. Can you imagine if you could find some ‘get in your head’ type ramblings by, say, your grandmother? How cool would that be? To get a glimpse into her real personality. What was going on in her head at different times of the year, the month, the day?

Call me egotystical. I can take it. Remember. It’s all about me. You’re just along for the ride, if you choose to come…

SHHHHHHH! Can You Keep a Secret?

You remember what I am was supposed to be doing tonight?
No, I’m not sick.
I’m not even pretending I’m sick.
I’ve got an even BETTER excuse.
YS is racing tonight! Woot!
No, I’m not going…
But MIL doesn’t know that.
She’ll be at the birthday party.
The Command Performance
If anyone tells I’m gonna track you down, I swear!
Hubby is thrilled.
He gets to go racing by without his momma – like a big boy!
Me?
Nope.
Not gonna go.
You can’t make me.
Shaddup! I am not evil.
Selfish, maybe.
“Only child syndrome” ?
I’ll except that.
Evil?
Not I, says the Sue…
Looking forward to a night off.

Friday’s Links

I’m going to start updating you on my new finds on Fridays… go on, you know you’re curious… get on over to these and say “Sue sent me”!

Sizzle got me hooked on these nice people:

Leolionqueen aka Jenny 2x – I’m not sure where the “2x” comes in, but maybe someday Sizzle will explain it to me.

Mr. Rodacre aka Duckie – go on over there and tell him Happy Birthday! It was yesterday, but that’s not my fault. I just found out. YEEEAAAA Duckie!

Becky and Jade made me go to Andyland. (Psst…it’s all about the penguins.)

Finally, this lovely girl, Beckett, found me all by herself. She’s trying to make her way in the big-bad world and could use a hug now and then…

That’s it for now. Oh, and if I’ve linked to anyone who would prefer I NOT link to them, please let me know. I’m all for personal freedom…
