HI! My name is ______.

Hi.  My name is Sarah and I enjoy writing.  I have primarily used this blog to bitch and moan.  Those posts are closed.  I did this for your protection as well as mine.  Their aren’t posts that answers life’s questions or hate letters to foreign dignitaries in there, just generalized rants. So don’t feel there are nuggets of goodness or evil I am keeping from you.

When I get upset or angry I have found that banging cuss words onto my keyboard helps two-fold. 

  1. I get out all the lava-o-hate I have brewing inside me.  Mostly this funk is derived from pain.  I have a bad hip and it hurts like all hell.  Some days I know this and just ignore it.  The conversation goes a little like this:

“Damnit I hurt.  You always hurt. I know shut up.  YOU shut up.  Ok…” *

Some days it is all-encompassing and overwhelming and I am sad and depressed about my lack of ability and general agonizing pain(not always but yeah, sometimes) and writing is the best way for me to avoid assaulting inanimate objects or going into screaming fights with my husband about random unnecessary shit that I only bring up because the turn signal in my car was so annoying I almost ripped it off and everything that comes with THAT.


  1. I find it cathartic to go back and read these rants and whines to reflect that today wasn’t as bad as THAT day.  That day I felt psychotic and depressed.  Today I just feel pissy and blue.  Or Today I just feel annoyed and aiight.


I do realize I have 2 #1’s but this isn’t exactly MS word and I am not going to wrangle with WordPress to fix it. 

This brings me to another important fact about me and my blog that I feel people should know.  I like to write.  But I am not grammatically efficient all of the time.  I tend to use too many or too few commas.  See right there. Is it commas or comma’s.  I dunno. I am not sweating it.  And after some thought I am questioning apostrophe use and not comma use. 

Clearly I operate on an 8th grade grammar level.  I am ok with this.  If you are not turn back now.

So, what IS this blog about?  Well, it is about what is rolling around in my head.  It is about current events, whether political, entertainment, literary, etc. 

I have lots of opinions.  I like to share them.  I may never have a reader on this blog, but if I do, they will be well versed in “Sarah-land” the best land of all. Sarah-Land is a lot ike candy land, but with pain meds. 

(All references to pain medication are legal and prescribed.  I am not a crack head posed as a blogger.  I understand the risks associated with having to take pain medication to manage pain and I accept these risks. The alternative is to be in jail for assaulting someone like the asshole yesterday who saw me limping and still sprinted in front of me trying to get to the elevator first and caused me to swivel on said bad hip and caused lots of excruciating pain. On pain meds it still hurts just not as bad, and you just don’t care quite as much.)

What you will read here is me.  Not a persona of me, not my online version of the cooler me, just me.  It may be silly or ranty or very sincere and a big downer at times, but those are the ABC’s of me.

I will try to post weekly to this site as I said above I find it therapeutic to write.  And not just expletives.  I think getting my ideas out there onto the interwebs is an activity I can get behind.  And I can sit.  And that makes Senor Horrible Hip happy. 

And I really strive just to keep that bastard happy.  Or at least quiet.

If I obtain any readers, and you fall upon this post please feel free to introduce yourself and make yourself at home.  It is cozy here.  I may hang drapes.

In all my lunacy,

 PS – When I did spell check I had misspelled 11 words.  Including grammatically.  This is the beset example of my literary foibles.
