Blogging To Breathe


–The computer dude, otherwise know as “The
dumbass who has stolen had our computer for three weeks,”
should be
FIRED.

Mr. Liverpool says I’m acting unreasonable,
irrational, unsympathetic, snotty.

Not
true.

He says the computer dude probably has other
commitments, a vast amount of computers he’s working on, a day job, and possibly
does not sit and think about blogs all. day. long.

I don’t believe it.    Nope sir reeee.   He’s probaby sitting on his lazy ass watching some idiotic program while our computer waits & waits &…

“Stop bitching,” he says. You’re
driving me craaazy.   You’re addicted, Kimmy.”

“Whaaaat? No I’m nooot,” I whine like a
fifth grader.

“Just look at how you’re behaving right
now,” he goes on.

 

“Your hands are sweating &
you’re walking around in circles like a wild cat.

 

You need your fix.  You need your crack.”

He smiles that stupid- knowing- familier smile.

I’ve seen that smile many times
before.

“Admit it,” he says. “Just confess
it.”

He sits waiting for my
response.

“So I write a few blogs once in a while….. SOoooo  damn WHAT~”

He’s REALLY starting to piss me
off.

I mean, perhaps there’s a morsel
of truth to what he’s saying.

Perhaps.

But I can stop anytime I want.

Oh, Yeah, baby.

I can stop right now.   Today.
This minute.

Flush my crack, language,
thoughts, ideas, sadness, lamenting, mourning, perspective, insight, &
random hollowness directly down the toilet.

I could….

Observe the words swirl &
swish into silence…

The syllables evaporate into nothingness.

But what would I do with my
words, my words?

Should I keep them hidden inside
to drown, to sink, to suffer?

Should I disguise them like the
plastic red lipsticked smile upon my face?

Should I die in my sleep with
the ink  and words still  upon my tongue?

——-Dear, Readers, What is your
addiction, your obsession, your crack?

    SO SO Funny and timely. I am going to take a month off from all social media, computer (except business emails) and the like. I keep putting off the start date, but I DON’T have a problem. Really. NO I DON’T, HOW DAY YOU ACCUSE ME OF HAVING A PROBLEM? YOU’RE ONE TO TALK… oh, this isn’t about me, it’s about you, right?

    Merry Christmas lady who has NO problems. Really. You are not addicted. Honest! Pay me when you get a chance, ok?

    My addiction in Pinterest. I turn on my computer to dutifully respond to comments, catch up on blogs and instead spend 5 hours on Pinterest, wondering how I can get my hands on whipped cream vodka at midnight. I would love to turn away from the computer. But I can’t. Damn I’m weak.

    I would hate for you not to share your thoughts and turmoil.

    I’m on your side. Computer geeks are just that- L-A-Z-Y SOB’s that will get to your computer when they feel like it. I know this, my kid is one.

    When the computer is down, the internet is out, or one isn’t available, I go crazy! The two weeks I didn’t have internet service because dad didn’t do the internet I was beside myself. I had to go to the top of the driveway in the woods just to get cell service! WTF? Or go downtown to find a place that had WiFi.

    Mr. Liverpool doesn’t understand. We girls need our internet! We need to “git it out thar!”

      I’ve been using the computer at work…and also a crazy stupid laptop.

      I am not thrilled about this.

    On a serious note, tell Mr. Liverpool we would miss you if you weren’t blogging. I love getting your notices in my email.

    You. Are. Not. Addicted. Neither am I. It is just that I want the comp to be on all day so I can read or write blogs whenever I feel like it, which is sometimes all day. I get withdrawal symptoms too, when we have a power outage and the battery can’t handle it.

    God, I am addicted to my blogger friends. Yes. That’s what it is. I worry when they don’t post for two days. And yes, my comp is only the means to get there. Heaven help the computer guy who actually dares to take my comp away. He’ll have a tigress to deal with.

    I love how you wrote:

    Kim, I have the same problem, but I think we have this addiction because of our passion for writing. So, embrace it. Though, today, I spent 3/4 of it away from the computer. Instead, I was wrapping presents, getting organized, watching a little TV, and cooking dinner. It was nearly a computer-free day. Then I started to feel guilty that I’d been away so long, which is why I’m here now. Got to get to writing! 😉 So, all this to say, I feel your pain.

    Listen up, Liverpool Laddie, she’s okay, I’m okay, okay? LOL LOL Missed ya chickie, glad you are back full tilt boogie, nice blog once again tonight (well, it’s night where I am now reading, anyway) 🙂

    As for crack, writing, writing, writing is mine. I would write in my sleep if I could. Ideas on napkins, pieces of envelopes torn in haste and forgotten or buried in other stacks of papers full of ideas and things I intend to write. Would that I should live long enough to even type all the words/ideas in my head. Happen I may spend my life wearing out keyboard after keyboard. Blogging is good, just writing period is where it’s at for me.

    But I’ll now confess that I’m now becoming somewhat addicted to my fellow bloggers, loving our “community” of like minded spirits and sharing. Just amazing and you are one of those, Kim 🙂 Such a pleasure to know you!

    PS
    I was just joking Mr. Liverpool. If I really meant it, I would have simply stayed silent and not wasted a single keystroke, LOL

    Loved this and if blogging is your crack, I’m glad of it. Your words should never be “flushed”!!! And yes, absolutely, even if you weren’t addicted (which it seems you probably are), three weeks is a long time, so this time, anyway, Mr. L. is probably wrong. My addictions are: coffee, endlessly editing old chapters and stories (when I’m afraid to start new ones), calling my sister and sometimes my aunt with every tiny bit of news (or even without), facebook (although only when I’m procrastinating), buying (too) expensive skin creams, teas, and lip balms.

    Kim, I too am addicted. This is the only place I can “put it out there” without filters. People help to share the burden when they comment on what you write. When I lost my beloved dog Honey, kind words sort of got me through the worst of it. When something strikes me as funny and people laugh or “get it”, it’s great. I think I’m closer to a lot of my “blogger friends” and “cyber buddies” than I am to people I’ve known for years and years. I think it’s a community that has such open arms and open hearts that it really enriches my life.

    I hope that rat bastard computer guy hurries up and fixes your baby. You need to be able to express yourself and I miss it when you aren’t doing it!

    Kim, I would not call it an addiction, I would label it the human need to communicate. Whether we’re on the receiving end or not, doesn’t matter. What matters is relaying our message. Our message of faith, humor, or hope. Other times it’s our need to “feel” the words of another; to feel their embrace, kind hug, or pat on the back. And what wonderful friends we make in the cyber world! Compassionate and understanding human beings that we’d be lucky to know in real life! You’re an extrovert, Kim. You HAVE to get your message out. Your friends, especially me, need you to. We need to smile, giggle, ponder, and even cry at what you write. It makes us feel that we’re not alone in the passage if life. I for one am feel my life has been enriched through your words. So write on, sister! Hugs from Rox and me! 🙂

    Why are our comps PMSing at the same time?!? I’m jonesing after two days…and with my boss being anal about our Net access, I have had to resort to purging my house files at work and typing up things more easily scanned.

    BOO HISS to Mr. Liverpool….he just doesn’t get us.

    Cute post! I actually believe that I am a little addicted to blogging as well. My new addiction, however, is Starbucks! Every morning I wake up anticipating my drive to work because Starbucks is on the way. And don’t let wake up too late to actually get to the Starbucks…I am usually late for work on these days. Sad….very very sad!

    OMG too funny! I hate to agree with Mr. Liverpool but he just might be right in this case. As for me….my addiction is coffee and chips & salsa. Just not at the same time 🙂

      Mr. Liverpool may be a little bit right…

      but I’m sure as hell not telling him that.

      xxx Kiss for you.

      hope you are doing okay during this time of year.

    Well, I’m sitting here with a cup of coffee in my hand, reading blogs and thinking “Hurry UP, stupid computer guy!” so I might not be the best person to talk to about addiction. I think you should embrace it though; it’s okay that this is your outlet. Keep writing!

    This is the best kind of crack. Words. Translations of liquid feelings. This kind of crack keeps us wild and passionate women off the streets.
    My newest crack is embroidering on my sewing machine. I’ve been dreaming about it the last three nights in a row. No lie. Obsessing. Yes ma’am! But it also soothes me and I end up with something tangible and awesome;). More crack please!

    HI Kim! I understand exactly how much time you want to invest in your blog and all the bloggy loveliness that’s out there! I hope that Mr L. gives you a big hug and continues to support your “habit”

    I spend a great portion of my waking hours blogging, cooking for the blog or thinking of the blog….or reading blogs!

    Fortunately, Honey Bunny has been very supportive and he – oddly enough – is thrilled that I’ve found something so fulfilling! He also asks about certain bloggers and how they’re doing (you included) based on what posts I’ve read to him and comments on my blog. He thinks the friendships I’ve developed are incredible …and he’s thrilled!

    I suspect that there will be a day that he’ll want to put a time constraint on it, but fortunately today’s not that day! And best of luck to him when he tries!

    Thinking of you….

    As for my obsessions…First and foremost is Honey Bunny! My sisters, my puppy, diet coke, cookbooks, romance books, plants vs zombies and, yes, blogging!

      I swear, I would walk 10 miles to get my Diet Coke fix :))

      Do you like the diet coke w/ lime?

      I love that your Honey Bunny is one of your addictions. XX 🙂

        Well, we know where we need to go when we meet – a place that serves Diet Coke! I actually am something of a purist when it comes to my sodas…I don’t like lime in it – nor do I like RUM in it! If I drink Diet Coke – it’s always straight up!

    I cans top but usually i go right back into blogging. Int he beginning I was really bad. I had to check the blog everywhere I went lol. I mean i was bad and it can be addictive. But after all for me, it wore off. I still love blogging but it doesn’t consume as much time. I try to keep my post organized to one day .. I did say I try lol

    Yeah, I understand the computer thing. I am in front of it all day, and really have no desire to get on it at night, but once I hit the blog dashboard, I’m gone. I guess my other thing is my Android. Check emails, twitter, even post to my blogs. I have the calendar, my to-do list, all my contacts. YUP! I’m addicted… if it ain’t my computer… it’s definitely my phone.

    You made me laugh Kim, because it is so me, when the computer was off a couple of months before. I was jumping here and there, couldn’t figure out what I could do with all these words coming and going.
    Grab a paper but it seemed my mind got used to speed !!

    Now my true addiction is Chesse and Baguette……..my French side! And I can’t go a day without Cheese. I could run in the city at night just to buy cheese. Crazy life!
