And Then, I Found a Horse Head in My Bed

27 Sep

As you may have noticed, the “post every day in September” goal has been derailed. So I’m playing catch up. Pretend this is Friday, not Sunday. I’m totally going to cheat and post four quick posts in a row. And they’ll all have a question for you at the end, so pay attention.

Earlier today, I was going to get busy catching up on my blog posts, but I got derailed by helping the kids with last-minute homework, running up to the store, and then I needed to obtain compromising photos so I could bribe a Federal agent. After that, I had to set up a money-laundering operation in Russia, then travel to Cuba to bank the earnings from selling my cigars on the black market.

Yes. I am a loving wife, stay-home mom, college student, freelance writer, and mafia kingpin. At least on Facebook’s Mafia Wars.

I try to keep my Mafia life quiet. I don’t let the game publish updates to my home page like “Dawn just iced another opponent, bringing her body count to 178.” I do not send numerous messages to all my friends begging them to join my mafia.

But Mafia Wars is definitely my favorite means of procrastination. Why blog when you can bludgeon?

Now you know my criminal secrets. So tell me yours. Watching entire seasons of “The Family Guy” on DVD? Crossword puzzles? Reading this blog? What’s your most popular distraction when you know you should be doing something else?

    So…yeah…I full-out karaoke all alone. I have a machine and microphones and tons of karaoke CDs. And I sing loud, very loud.

    Twitter. It sucks that it’s part of my job too. So I always feel like I’m working, even when I’m not.

    Kids and all that they entail keeps me from reading, baking, or blogging. Oh, wait you meant what keeps me from doing what I SHOULD be doing not what I WANT to be doing. Nevermind. 🙂

    I really want to rock out to some karaoke all alone now, though. (Seriously.)

    Yarn. Yarn-related websites. And random editing of stuff found on the interwebs 🙂
