Thursday Thirteen--weird blogging habits

Jeana asked for this, so here goes:

1. I read blogs first thing every morning as soon as I get to work.
2. I write directly, rather than into a word document, which would make so much more sense, because then I would not lose those brilliantly funny sketches that get lost in the blogosphere when I don't hit the right key to publish.
3. I laugh out loud when I am reading other blogs,
4. and then have to explain what was so funny to the other teachers who are looking at me as if I am a loon.
5. I just discovered yesterday that I can change the font and the size,
6. but I realllly wanted chocolate to be in massive, cursive, or gothic letters yesterday,
7. and none of the fonts available really showed my deep and abiding passion for chocolate.
8. Sometimes I have a lot of trouble staying on topic, and tend to wander off on rabbit trails,
9. but usually I remember in time what my point was (and I do usually have one), and get back to it before I run out of time or words.
10. I *love* comments!
11. Even if they all say the same thing, they are from different people, and it is soooo much fun to read what they say.
12. I am tryng to think of another blog about chocolate, since that one generated more comments (other than family) than any other blog I have posted.
13. I am worried about fighting with my husband this summer, when we have access to only one computer at home, and he wants to read his message boards (I call them boreds, because they are all about politics), and I *need* to be reading blogs, and writing blogs, and commenting on other people's blogs!
14. to say nothing of the time I spend on e-mails.

Okay, yeah, I know that was 14 instead of 13, but that makes up for the time I didn't have 13 things to say.

I keep telling my husband, "I NEED a laptop. This taking turns business is not working." I laughed out loud when I read your post!

I agree about how the word chocolate should appear. It should be like spell check in word, where as soon as you finish spelling out the word, it automatically changes it color to a deep rich brown and gives it lots of curlz coming off of it!

Great TT! :)

Addie, EXACTLY! Scrolls and curls and flourishes--trumpet voluntaries and drum rolls too!

Lauren said...

Ah, the weirdness runs on the family, now things are starting to make sense.

Great list, I enjoyed reading it.

chocolate deserves its own font, you're so right!

Tess said...

that's where Word comes in, when you need a better font. I downloaded the word for blogger patch just for that purpose.

and yes you need a laptop! it is the best!
