Greg 'n Keetha Stuff

OK, let's be honest. This is really KEETHA stuff. Sometimes I write about Greg - - - but he has never in his life made one single post of his own. He has occasionally made a comment or two. So - - - come on in and visit with me, Keetha, for a while. I'd love it if you left your foot prints. (Interpretation: COMMENT PLEASE ;-)

"No One Cares What You Ate For Lunch"

Is, I believe, the title of a book written by a woman I heard being interviewed on NPR the other morning. The purpose of the book was to instruct people on how to make an interesting blog.

It sounded to me that she thought talking about food was boring.

I disagree. I enjoy TALKING about and READING about and SEEING photos of food on blogs.

I think Miss "NPRauthorinterviewee" used her blog as an online department store of unusual goods and services. I think THAT is boring.

I guess my little nonpoint here is this - - - - the blogs I like are the ones where people share random things from their real lives, things like visits to pumpkin patches, chocolate desserts, children and their antics, fun quotes, frog princes, pies in the face, football, name the baby contests, choose the Christmas picture contests,Pig Latin essays, and funny anecdotes. I really don't want to spend my free time perusing someone's sales pitch.

And - - - - - for all who are wondering, and even for those who are not, I had leftovers for lunch.

We went to CHIPOTLE and had wonderful burritos for dinner. MMMMMMMMMM.

You're right Keetha - real life makes for the best blogging. People who listen to NPR to learn how to write their blog shouldn't have blogs anyhow - THEY're boring. :-)

Well, if the author knew our little blog circle was out here, she'd have to renege on loser idea of an interesting blog, wouldn't she?


Hope the fam is all doing well.

Oh, Keetha...I love you and your blog! This made me smile! We all really must have an in person gathering sometime. Tree of Life (in the back room so we can really raise a ruckus) or Starbucks (only if they have lemon bars, of course). Or my house even (over Christmas break, before school starts in). I'm feeling warm and fuzzy just thinking about you virtual support group!

I LOVE what we're doing here, and the more talk of food, the better.

I've seen people set up their blogs as a personal web site - some of my author friends do that to promote their books - but I don't visit them.

It's all this spontaneous chatter that keeps me going. And the thought of seeing you all.

Good to hear from you again Anon!

Keetha - I must clarifty. If you listened to NPR ONLY for the purpose of learning how to write a blog - THAT is the type of boring person that shouldn't be allowed to have a blog. :-)

YOU - you're definitely allowed to have a blog. I couldn't imagine life WITHOUT it!

Awwwwwwwwwww sshhhhhuuuucccckkkksss Dangie, you make me feel SOOOOOOOO affirmed!!!!! AND - - - if we arrange a gettogether of this blog circle, will you come from Minnesota???????? Please????? ;-)

Char - - - - - I agree about the Web pages that are for promo of some business part of the bloggers life. BORING. Where's the vim and vigor in that?????

We, on the other hand, talk of all the really important things here - - - - LIKE, did you know our world in IN is now FROSTED?????? May not last long, but it is pretty right now.

Keetha - you have to try Chipotle! Their burritos are the best. I am getting hungry just thinking about one. I have been soooo bad about keeping my blog currently lately. I hope to have a little time next week... Until then, just to keep everyone updated...we had House of India last night - tasty lamb and veggies plus mango kulfi (like ice cream only creamier). Rally's earlier in the week. Stuffed mini-pita pockets another day made by a dear friend, Katie. Crab cakes and spinach salad by Scott on Wednesday. Chimichangas at Si Senor last Sunday. To be perfectly honest, I have not cooked a meal since Nov. 9th - the day before we left for Guatemala! I will cook something this weekend b/c the family is coming over on Sunday for November/December birthdays. I will have to dig out the cookbooks to see what I can concoct.

Kathy - - - - your comment is long enough and 'tasty' enough to make a post!!!!!!
That stuff all sounds wonderful.

And cooking, what's that??????? Hehehehehe

Actually, (don't faint Keri) I did manage to make pot roast for Sunday dinner, and the leftovers of that were what I mentioned at the end of this post.
