Unfortunately, I haven't really been in the mood to blog for the last few days. In this spirit, I give you the top ten Excuses for Not Blogging:
10: My dog ate my computer cord. I swear, my dog eats everything else (Dammit! I loved those shoes!!), so why not a power cord? Shane's cat, Tyler, chews on cords all the time.
9: I lost my notebook of ideas, and couldn't come up with anything under pressure. (Of course, this only applies if no one knows that you really work best under pressure.)
8: I got busy watching TV. I only get to watch quality television (and by quality, I'm referring as much to picture quality as to content) once a week! When I get it, I get REALLY into it.
7: I spent my time online searching the internet for recipes for pulled pork (because I totally forgot everything that Mandy put into hers (except for a little bit of liquid smoke)).
6: I started to blog, but then got sidetracked as I tried to determine the proper location for a period when also using a parenthetical statement at the end of a sentence. (Notice that I didn't end that sentence with a parenthetical statement.)
5: My dog ate my shoes. Seriously, that distracted me for, like, an entire night!
4: My dog tried to eat a notebook. I don't know where she got this taste for paper, but she's munched on notebooks, looseleaf, scrap paper, tissue paper, kleenex... anything paper-related.
3: I tried to have a life instead of geeking out on the computer. (Hey, it could happen!)
2: I was busy carving a pumpkin. (It's really cute, too!)
And the number one excuse for not blogging: My internet connection crashed. Again. (Does anyone know how to stop it from doing that? And can you please tell my network admin about it?)
