Good lord, I am in a cranky mood today, and I really have no idea why. I had a great workout yesterday, longer and a little more intense than usual, and slept like a rock last night as a result, and my hair looks fine, and I don’t feel especially fat or gross today, and I have a cool shirt on, and the weather isn’t terribly offensive, and no one’s really done anything specific to annoy me, but I’m still really grouchy. And it’s not, like, actively grouchy, to where I want to be pissy and mean to people. It’s more along the lines of eyeroll-y grouchy, where I find everything annoying, but quietly and secretly, and I want everyone to leave me alone and I want to go home and get back in bed.
I was even planning to write an uplifting and inspirational post today about this website I found that moved me, but I’m way too grumblegrumbly to even do that. Grouch grouch grouchy, even. So you’ll have to wait for another time to read that one, or maybe never, since I’m forever making promises about future posts that I never follow through on.
Oooh! I know what would be fun today. How about if every one of you reading leaves me a comment to tell me you’re here? I’ve been wanting to do this for a long time, and a quick Google search tells me that a few people have gone and tried to make it an official day (DeLurking Day, or whatever), but whatever, I tend to miss official days, and I missed all of these.
I just used “whatever” twice in a sentence. That’s pretty bad. But since I’m writing more stream-of-consciously than usual (not a word, probably!), I’m going to leave it.
Anyway. I know I have a fair number of readers, because I track my stats rather obsessively, and once in a while I hear from someone who’s like, “Hey, I’ve been reading for x months but never felt comfortable or never got around to saying hello before now,” and you guys, if I’ve never said it before, I love so much that you find something in this that makes you come back. It’s one of the most flattering and affirming things ever, and I’ve always hoped that everyone reading would comment once in a while, but I understand that there are lots of reasons why you don’t.
So, here’s a chance. If you’re reading, whether you’ve commented before or not, I’d love it if you took a moment to leave a quick comment saying hi. And you can tell me one thing about yourself, anything you want, or not. My comments are set up in such a way that you don’t even have to leave any contact information if you’d prefer not to – just say hello. It would make my day.
And I hope you have a good day, too.
