Belly Flop

Ack! Bloggers’ block! Or what’s the technical term for that? Maybe I should patent it and become extremely wealthy off however that works. So patent pending.

Things I’ve done in the past week:
Gone for several walks.
Read lots of books.
Made zucchini bread.
Plotted my rise to power and domination of the world.
Ate a real life orange from a real live tree.
Watched Modern Family.
Broke a promise and made disappointment.

And things I haven’t done in the past week:
Write letters to the people I owe them to.
Make monkey bread for my family, which they’ve been requesting for weeks.
Create something awesome.
Write something worth reading.
Come up with fancy new material for this blog post.
Talk to my mom about this queer stuff.

Which is so freaking frustrating! I have my mind set on telling her, and I’ve really been intending to do it since several weeks back when I was making other lists instead of telling her. I keep falling through though. There have been several absolutely ideal opportunities and I haven’t been able to make use of any of them. It’s driving me nuts. I think she’ll be cool about it, and I know I so want to just get it out there already, but I can’t make myself do it. Plus it doesn’t help that my brain balks at assigning myself a label to make any kind of pronouncement. So that’s the status on that. Tune in next week to hear how I’ve continued to wuss out.

On an unrelated but also related note, my mom just checked the mail and walked in and put the Entertainment magazine on the counter next to where I was making something tasty. Go figure this is the cover.


  1. I love lists. I don't frequently follow through but I love them. Good luck, friend, everything will happen when you are ready. Also, mmmm, monkey bread...

    1. Use your imagination on that one; it still hasn't happened yet. Zucchini brownies though. I have lots of zucchini.

  2. By the way you talk you're getting ready to burst, to just let it all out. Maybe this situation is kind of like a zit on your forehead. You know it's there, you're constantly aware of it, and you know popping it will make it feel better and heal over, but you have to wait until it REALLY comes to a head. Gross...I know. :)

    1. Thanks for that. I love the way you think.

  3. Wow Jo... Wow. :)
    I love that cover, I thought it was fabulous. I need to get my hands on one so I can read the story.
    And I think we should swap plans on world domination. Mine has to do with acquiring water... yea anyways.
    And the mom stuff will come up. I mean I totally chickened out and wrote a blog post and told my mother to read it. So I guess I'm not one to talk. But good luck :)

    1. Oh. That won't work for me; I don't believe in water. Thanks for the luck though. I'll try not to spend it all in one place.

  4. And you didn't use THAT as your way to break the ice on the topic??? It would have been perfect.
    "Hey mom, speaking of famous queer people...I might be one someday! :)"

    The time will come. And you will know. :)

    1. I know, right? But yeah. I like the way Jo put it. Gross, yes, but probably a good analogy.
