Will you come visit me when they take me away?


This time I've really done it. It may have been due to the case of PUPETSD I acquired yesterday. What is PUPETSD? You haven't heard of it? PUPETSD is Post Ugly Plant Exposure Traumatic Stress Disorder. You see, I was at my doctor's office waiting for an immunization shot, and I had to wait WAY TOO LONG. Not only did I have to wait too long, I had to stare at ugliness. Ugly silk plants and flowers to be exact. I think they disturbed me. Between this unnecessary exposure, plus the incessant drug ads, pictures of internal organs, plastic breast lumps, and all of the other goodies I saw there, it seems as if they got to my head.
Are you having trouble following me here? Ok, I'll just say it.
I am now a follower of my own blog.

For some unexplainable reason, I came home yesterday, and clicked on the button to "follow this blog." Why? Your guess is as good as mine. Whatever the reason, it can't be good. Following your own blog is like:

  • Stalking yourself
  • Being in a 12 step program, and being your own sponsor
  • Having yourself for an invisible friend
  • Being a babysitter for yourself
  • Being your own parent
  • Functioning as your own probation officer
  • A passive aggressive way of declaring that you have multiple personalities
  • Taking yourself to the prom

I just felt I had to share this with all of you, despite the potential disgust and fallout that it might generate. When you come to visit me at the funny farm, bring Starbucks, ice cream and candy, k?

By the way, here are a couple of pics of some of the plant offenders.

OMG- I did that yesterday, too!!! I didn't actually 'follow', but I pressed the button and realized that I COULD follow myself- We're all here for you!

Do it Tena! Do it!! I will feel better, and maybe we can room together at the funny farm.

This is clearly a case of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder brought on by the loss of your mechanical pencil! You've done too much too soon. Following your own blog is like a dog chasing his tail. It's ok, a few tequillas and it'll be a little better.

That IS funny!!!! I noticed that was an option yesterday. I think I will follow myself. Maybe then I wouldn't get lost and would know where I am at all times. Maybe.

A coupla times when I've responded to someone's comment thru typepad, I get an email that asks if I want to approve Jessica's comments. WTF.

Praise Jesus. Someone else stalks themselves.

I'm not alone.

Hey, maybe this is the beginning of a 12 step program?
