I was watching the debate, with my laptop in front of me, watching what was happening on the blogs (political blogs) as well as what was on the TV. That was fun, and although I think as sober people we are supposed to be citizens again and pay attention and participate, I won't subject you to my opinions here. 10th tradition, you know. And yes, like Pam, I do have opinions. They are informed opinions. I do not just spout off crap that I think sounds good. And my opinions usually are counter to just about everyone else I know, so I know I am not just trying to fit in.
There has been a bunch of "stuff" going on in my life that I will no longer write about here. I used to write about it, but then I would have people "drop in" and blast me in the comments. Not knowing the first thing about me or what was going on. Alcoholics love to bombard each other with meaningless and unsolicited advice. And in case you think I might be speaking about you, if you are a regular reader I am not. I have gotten rid of all but one of those readers.
I went to the public library last week for the first time in 15 years? Now instead of lots of good books, there are a few shelves of books and a huge bank of computers. There was a slight waft of body odor as I walked by. There were lots of backpacks and grimy clothes and people furiously pounding keyboards. I imagined a similar library, on the other side of our planet, with a poor, mentally ill person who doesn't even know his name, sitting in a library, pounding a keyboard, reading my blog, and sending me comment after comment after comment telling me I am going to hell.
The world has really changed. I participate in the changes I like. I like this blog, or at least I used to. But I don't like that someone half a world away can take my pictures and my writing and pervert it and blast it all over the place. I recently checked out all the links in the world to my blog. I was amazed to see that this person is high on the list of referrers to my blog. I was also amazed to see that there is a porn blog that has photos of porn, with my writing. Maybe our friend should target that blog instead of mine.
The blog of a 56 year old woman who is sober 24 years. The blog of a practicing Roman Catholic, and that is totally inappropriate to talk about here. The blog of a person who has a profession that I never talk about here. The blog of a mother, grandmother, aunt, sponsor, friend, and neighbor. Some of you do know me pretty well. Casual readers don't. This blog is only supposed to be a general blog about being a sober member of Alcoholics Anonymous. I don't write specifically about my religion because of the traditions of AA. I don't write specifically about my politics because of the traditions of AA... etc., etc., etc.
I am crabby this morning. I will go to work and after work I will go get my hair colored and cut. And since the whole world now has this short bob, I think I shall change my 'do. I might get it cut short since I do that every couple of years.
Have a good day everyone.
