I have to blog this

A bunch of interesting things happened to me yesterday which I'd love to blog about but I won't have time today. In particular, I really want to blog about the "Drive-in Chupa" I attended last night, but I can't do it justice, so it will have to wait a little.

Increasingly, I find myself saying things like, "Wow, that was cool; I'll have to blog about it," or "that was so funny; it'd make one heck of a blog!" Often multiple times a day.

The funny thing is, I don't think my life is any more interesting now than it was before I started blogging. I think I'm just paying attention now.

Drive in chuppa? Was the center divider used as a mechitza? Was there an open bar?

PT - Check your e-mail :)

And yes, life changes when you write about it. As a musician, you must have noticed that before?

Ezzie said...

Indeed...

When I started journalism school, I panicked when the professors said there were stories all around me. Really? Where? How come I couldn't see any?

By the time I left the profession eight years later, I was working 60-hour weeks because I couldn't keep up with all my ideas.

Stories are indeed all around you, which is both a curse and a blessing (as I suspect you're discovering).

Good good. So we're never going to come here to a PT blog that says, "I have nothing to blog about today."

You've tapped into my world. What I usually do when that happens is rush to start an entry, jot down a few thoughts that I will hopefully remember why I thought it was interesting, and save in my draft file. Days and weeks may pass before I actually get around to writing a story from it, but at least, temporarily, I feel relieve to just getting it out of my immediate thoughts.

I'm not worried about running out of things to write. I probably end up blogging about a third or a quarter of the things I want to write about. I'm trying to work more on quality than quantity at this point.

But my point was more that blogging has made me realize that my life is full of interesting events everyday, and now I can appreciate that more.

What a truth! My blessings have multiplied since I started counting them! I'm mentally composing blogs posts almost constantly. I never realized how many cute things my kids say/do before.

Wow... i wish i had that problem. Back at my peak I had maybe an idea for a post a day. Now that i'm working, i'm lucky if i can even think about blogging more than once a week!

A drive in chupa now there is a new way to use that technology. I thought it was kind of interesting when the CVS and other pharmacies started using "drive ins" for pickup and drop offs. I guess it has made it's way into the wedding circut. Someone has become a pioneer...I await more details!

PT, I also say during the day 'I should blog this'. Later though, I say 'Nah, people won't be interested.' And so only a few of my thoughts go up on there.

Now for me its the opposite.
I start telling a story to someone, and they say "Oh, go blog it!"

Has anyone heard about the
drive-thru funeral home? It's true...I believe it's in Lousiana.

PsychoToddler said...

It's funny, I sometimes stop myself from telling someone a funny story in person so I can blog it later.

Or I find that myself using the verbal version of the story as a dry run for the typed version.

I need to get a real life.

Drive through funeral? Do you need a station wagon for that? "Ok dump the body, pull round to the window"
