Tap, tap, tap. Is this thing on?

Did you know that you can update your Facebook status with just a few words, while it takes multiple SENTENCES to fill up any kind of space on a blog?  It’s a wonderful thing, and it provides instant feedback.  With this blog deal, I have to wait until you check your blogroll or Google Reader* and THEN I have to wait for comments.  I am not so good with the waiting.

Also, it turns out I don’t have much to say these days.  There are plenty of my-kids-are-adorable (or frustrating) stories, always forgotten by the time I make it to the computer.  There’s a lot of whining about how my job sucks, but I am SOOOOOO glad to have the paycheck that I can’t help but suck up the whining and attempt a grateful attitude.

And there are stories like this cliffhanger, which I will leave you with since I am here and maybe you are too:  I bought new bras and underwear yesterday.  I had Orange and Apple with me, so I did not try on the bras, which of course are too small.**  So now I need to choose: lose 10 pounds (on my to-do list anyway), learn to love the back fat as I have learned to embrace the muffin top, or exchange them for the correct size (which is what I will eventually do, because I am a responsible grown-up and I am not intimidated by the teenager at Target’s return counter).***

*Well, let’s not kid ourselves.  At this point, nobody’s checking for content here anymore.

**Jellyman — the band is too small, not the cups.  Sorry.

***Yes, Target.  Shut up.

    I never left Target, so I’m just as happy to see you go back as not. After all, with Northwest turned into Delta (which — come ON, that’s an airline oriented around the Gulf of Mexico, dudes, it’s right there in your name), Honeywell long since decamped, and Pillsbury a British subsidiary, we need Target (and, OK, General Mills — but they’re not encouraging anyone to shop the edges of the grocery store now, are they? not really a hip new concept sort of place) to keep Minnesota’s rep alive.
