My photo
I am a girl/woman/human who has random thoughts. Sometimes you can find me here rambling, other times i might have useful stuff to say. For the most part, my friends and family can see what I might be up to in the days events. Or, for sake of sakes, its all made up... only i know.. and MAYBE a select few of you! Either way~ I am an American living in Australia. Oh, and any photo you see on this blog IS NOT FOR YOUR USE. If I have taken the photo myself or have permission to use it, YOU CAN NOT USE IT FOR YOURSELF. So be warned... and just dont use my damn photos.

its mean.. i know

So, today I have had quite a bit of time on my hands... and I was hitting the "next blog" button and looking at random blogs.

And, I know, some of you might want to bash me for saying this.. but seriously, can you put up something other than your child on your blog? ANYTHING.   900 million photos of your kid is a bit much. I know.. kids are cute... watching them grow, watching them eat and be sloppy, taking a nap, new outfit.  saw it ALL today.

But heres the deal... would you want me to put 900 million photos of my cat on the blog? I can.. I mean, I think shes cute & all, but seriously.

If you want to use a blog for ONLY photos.. try something a bit more specific.. like, oh, i dont know.. shutterfly, or your local digital place, or that photo program everyone seems to use.. I know, its your blog,  you can do whatever you like.

But when you randomly decide to type a few words other than "boy eating porridge" and write some crap like "someone read me please" you have to wonder, does your audience give a crap that boy eats porridge?

I know, some readers might wander to my page and not like my blog, or content.. but at least there are CHOICES on my blog.. for f**ksakes... 900 million photos of your kid doing nothing is BORING.. and if you are related to said kid.. its still BORING.  Spice it up a little.. add something else. PLEASE.

Anyway, if your gonna bash me.. Im not printing your comment. Why? CUZ I CAN, its my blog!

Way to go girl... I'm Damm sick of all the self-centered people in the world. Lots of suff to enjoy in the world, other than someone else's BRATS.Sure there cute, but as a whole, totally uncontrolable, and they get it from their parents. Gypsyghost.

good to know Im not the only one who thinks sometimes enough is enough!

Gypsyghost: your spot on.. the kids do get it from their parents... uncontrollable kids = uncontrollable parents! I like the way you think!

Hi Mich, Are those knee bands making you grouchy? From the recent behavior observed in certain others in the family, maybe a couple of them are having a reaction to wearing them also???? Auntie M.

Ah.. Auntie M, as great as your theory is, no, I dont think 'the others' have such trendy looking knees at the moment.

Sometimes its just one of those days, ya know?

Hi, thanks for visiting my blog. I usually Follow "writers", so the occasional kid pic is rare.

My knees are untrussed, and I agree wholeheartedly, so there goes the grouch theory Auntie M. I guess at least you stopped short of suggesting that In a Little Minute was having her period, or something equally condescending.
Just because someone has decided to throw a litter, doesn't mean the rest of the world has to celebrate with them. More children in an overcrowded world? Yeah, great idea.

And Auntie M, don't ever underestimate the therapeutic benefits of having a rant -some things just need to be said!

Well, I didnt think this post would get so much response.. but it did, and Im loving it!

I guess the inundation of kid photos is the torture I receive from hitting the "next blog" button time and time again. I have def learned my lesson, again.

Oh the bitterness of the NULLIPARA! HAHA. Just teasin' you Mich. I always promised myself I would never be "one of those". My beef is when you are talking to a friend on the phone and they spend the entire conversation disciplining their offspring or repeatedly explaining to them that Mommy is on the phone. HANG THE BLEEP UP! Tell me you don't have time to talk. Say you will call me later...something and anything, just don't waste my precious cell minutes interrupting our catchin' up time. I know my FB is flooded with pics of my kid. It's mostly because my baby daddy has relatives in other states and it helps keep them updated on what she looks like now. Maybe that's why others do it as well? Even worse is when you finally hook up with your girlfriends and that's all everyone wants to do is discuss and compare the toddlers and infants. You fall into this child obsessed catergory once you give birth. Doesn't matter how much you try not to. I never thought it would happen to me....
