So my first blog post has come because I had a rant on Facebook yesterday that confirmed for me I need a different kind of forum for my “feelings”. And my Facebook post made reference to a rant with which my family is very familiar – potato salad.
I hate it.
You take nice, lovely, warm, cooked potatoes and you make them cold. Then you coat them with cold grease (mayonnaise). Then you eat it and everyone says isn’t this delicious. No it is not delicious. And some well-meaning person/people, always women, will say “But you haven’t had my potato salad”. Well your potato salad sucks too because it involves cold and mealy potatoes and cold grease. Just sayin’.
This is great. A place where I can bitch. And the whole world can see it. If they want. While I was typing this, I was making a list on my little pink pad of other topics about which I have numerous opinions.
Some of my thoughts for future discourse include, in no special order – my dog Mike, organized religion, Maine, my nephew Jake, meatloaf, one of my former employers OK its Mintz & Hoke, Paris, my friends and our “Supper Club”, infertility and ectopic pregnancy and lost and broken dreams, Facebook and why I love it. Wow – that whole list took me 5 seconds to write.
Be back soon…
