Get Lost

I wish I had the talent to bang out a consistently funny, laugh out loud blog like Red and Denton do every day at Surviving Grady.

I'd give anything to be able to have the talent of my friend Cyn to write thoughtful and insightful looks at the Boston Red Sox and the city of Boston on a daily basis.

There are not enough creative juices flowing in my body to try and attempt what Kelly O does at Sitting Still and I don't think I'd really want to try. It's tough to beat perfection.

Which leaves me to my blog. I try and write something everyday and usually try to include the resident heathens as much as I can. My long suffering wife Ang gets included every now and again, and I'm always good for a completely un-researched, totally off the cuff with no proof to back it up analysis of the Red Sox in one way or another.

I have horrible grammar and punctuation, don't know my way around the dictionary to save my life, and whenever I get a case of writers block I bring in Miss Hathaway to save the day. My biggest problem is time; I get home at 7:30, spend the next 2 hours either playing with my kids or being assaulted with Light Sabers, cap guns, and gibley shots, and by the time 9:30 rolls around I'm too tired to think, Ang wants to "talk", or I'm watching one of the 4 things on tv I just don't miss.

Red Sox games.

Jack Bauer.

Prison Break (Not really sure how I got into this one. The whole thing has more holes in the plot than the Yankees do in the bullpen)

And a show starting it's season with tonight's season premiere. I've watched every episode now and STILL can't figure out what in the world is going on. Which sort of resembles my life, now that I think about it.

So, with my apologies for another rambling mess of a post that accomplished nothing other than making sure I wrote something?

Time to get LOST.

Get Lost? do you need a map?

Ted D said...

Is it a requirement for citizenship in Texas that everybody be a smart aleck? ;)

Tex said...

is that a rhetorical question? :D

Ted D said...

Yes. :P

RYC yesterday: I got that impression with NC especially when central office informed me a couple years ago that their "rules" are white children go to XXX school and black children go to XXX school. How they used that as a base to informing us where our dd was supposed to go was beyond me. Yes, it was an old "rule of thumb" but why hasn't it ever been changed? Oh wait a minute! I guess that means we're black! Oh and another aquaintance of mine in a mixed marriage told me a clerk pulled a gun on her and her husband and told them not to come in their store ever again! true story! (according to them anyways)I said all that to say thanks for the clarification.

Ted D said...

Edge, none of that surprises me in the least. Sometimes it's hard to remember we're in the year 2009 around here.

Ted, you're too hard on yourself, especially when you're far too kind to the rest of us. ;)

Ted D said...

Just speaking the truth, Kelly. Believe me, I know my limitations; and you ARE fantastic in what you do.

Stacy said...

If you ever figure that show out, you can explain it to me. I don't want to have to think that hard. :)

Beth said...

I taped it - and probably won't get the time to see it til the weekend. Can't wait!

Ted D said...

Stacy, I'm just hoping they answer all the questions at the end. TV shouldn't make your head hurt.

Beth, it was really good but really fast paced. I should have taped it so I can pause and rewind.
