Hmmph...a picture says a thousand words

Or is that harrumph? Whoever had the bright idea of including Positively in the name of this blog has completely messed with my mind and my ability to post my more serious musings. Oh right, that was me. Whatever.

I'm afraid this is going to turn into a food blog for a minute while I get my bearings again. Sorry, better that than you listening to me beat my drum and waxing pitiful. Just a few things before I turn this blog over to the food gods:

1. I'm pretty sure the gas station where I get my refills puts crack in the soda fountain. I tried switching to the cans, but the fountain still calls me and my head hurts something awful until I cave in.

2. Hi! I'm Mrs. Organic, and I write really bad fiction. As in You've got a big piece of green something in your teeth but I'm not going to say anything kind of bad fiction. There, I've said it. Why don't I feel as better as I thought I would confessing that? (Having said that, if you'd like to read it, I'll send you an invite - because I am not above keeping that parsley in my teeth for your amusement).

3. I just read a confessional post (where people anonymously confess something in their comments) at Lauren's blog and I think people make stuff up to confess - the more outrageous the better. Some people try to do out do each other in the shock-and-awe department. And also people have a lot of hangups about sex. Shocking, I know. I think some of the confessions were real, but some were just crap. Anonymity has its perks.

How about you? Anything to confess?

I agree with you about the fountain.

And I've done an anonymous confession post several times in the past and got A LOT of sex comments.

In fact, after doing the second one, a couple of my readers created an anonymous blog about sex and intimacy, primarily for LDS women.

I probably will not do that post again. It is too stressful to monitor hundreds and hundreds of anonymous comments.

I would love to read what you are writing!
I don't think I would want to do a confessional on my blog. Lauren is BRAVE.

Emma J said...

I confess I would like to read what you have written - if anyone can carry off parsley in their teeth with grace, it's gotta be you, Mrs. O.

Mrs. Organic said...

Heff - I meant to tell you how much I love your writing. Thank you for letting me read your poetry, you really have a gift.

I have a lot of hangups about s3x. That's my confession.

Amen on not writing pity posts. It's hard not to, though, if that's what's going through your head for any amount of time.

I just wrote a long pity post. I guess that could be my confession. :)

When Kristina did her secrets post, I HATED that there were so many (LDS) people carrying stuff around that they could just take to their bishop and repent of and be free of. I wish I thought they were all made up, but a lot of them sounded pretty convincing. It was depressing.

Your package came yesterday! BEAUTIFUL. And amazing. I was very excited. (And now I can finally read that post -- I've been so good about not peeking.)

I would never do an anonymous confession post, although it might be funny.

And the only thing that I have to confess is that I look and act very confident and come across a bit intimidating, but inside I sometimes have low self esteem...

Confessions....I never in a million years would confess a real thing, or even a made up thing, on a blog.
I have had a couple people accuse me of writing snarky comments/confessions on those blogs but it is never me.
If I'm gonna confess I'll just do it on my own blog :)

Mrs. Organic said...

But still, you're not gonna confess.

I just logged on to hear confessions but there aren't any. Acutally, I'm glad, I can't handle it unless they are funny "clean" confessions.

Mrs. Organic said...

Lynn - It's because I'm such a prude. ;)
