Ghetto Potato

okay, so here’s the deal with me and this blogging thing. i’m thinking how bad could this really be to keep up with?? Here’s another thing- i don’t have internet service at home right now…. and probably won’t anytime soon. Sad isn’t it? Oh well, saving $ is more important. But I think it would be good for me (therapeutic) if i typed stuff into my laptop in the evenings to unwind and then took it to work in the mornings to load onto my blog before starting my day or during a break or something… ha. i may find out that this is not a good idea… i don’t know… i’ll give it a shot though.
so, i’m here under the covers, typing on the laptop. i should be sleeping. but i can’t go to sleep most of the time anyway… my brain won’t shut down.
i was just talking to a friend about how these blog things make you so dang vulnerable. that’s another reason i wouldn’t jump into it right away. but i decided to take the plunge thinking that it’s highly unlikely that people are really going to read it on a regular basis anyway… so i’m safe to a certain degree. i’ve only let a small handful of folks know about this anyway… besides, how many perfect strangers are actually going to check this out? i guess there might be professional blogger readers out there somewhere… all they do all day long is read blogs…? you think?
here’s the funny thing, i actually started a “journal” of sorts typing into my laptop a long time ago… when i was in college and needed to get things out. i used to type it in and save it to a disk… that’s right, i said disk. i went to the trouble of finding that disk tonight and read through my “entries”. i really poured my heart out. it was good for me to go back and read. along the same lines, i’m thinking this blogging might be good for me if i actually keep up with it. it’s really no different than what i used to do anyway… it’s just online… whatever.
hmm… judging by some of those old entries i read tonight… i think i tend to get too philosophical at night. yikes!
can i just say that i ate a “Sutphen’s Potato” a.k.a. “Ghetto Potato” for dinner from Sutphen’s & Big Daddy’s BBQ tonight and there are very few other things in life that can make me so happy. Okay, just kidding, but I do love myself some Ghetto Potato. Ain’t no denying it. :)

yes! the ghetto potato! just remember, continued consumption of the ghetto potato leads to one thing: GHETTO BEHIND. I am a victim. the old oru memos sound interesting. its so fun to go through old things like that, i found a break up card from my x in a bag in my trunk. this bag was full of oru loan letters that i thought were important so i saved. this bag was passed from 3 trunk of 3 different cars i had over the past 6 years. when i read the card, it was one of those really long poetic pathetic ones, i about lost it....i about peed my pants! well, thats all for now.

Way to go, Lambie! I love it and will look forward to your late night ramblings. We often tell more and look deeper when we are the most relaxed and if that takes you being under the covers then so be it! Go for it!!
