Funny things I learned on Twitter.

My life is not profound. I am sure it is. The portion of my brain that would recognize this, I'm sure, is clouded. I at least now recognize the boughts of clarity. This is a start. What rattles about in my head, is not projected out via my exterior. My wrapping is of neutral order. I awkwardly blend in, always knowing the public is denied access to my orchestral singularity. Despite several marginal similarities, I am not part of the group. I may join, sometimes reluctantly, smaller groups. A knitting group, a fund raising function, a playgroup for my youngest. Each of these is entered into on a set tolerance of the group. I take each experience for what it is, quickly identifying mundane nonsense, and come and go as I please. How this plays out keeps it interesting.

Amanda Fucking Palmer tweeted a link to a video she made for Tegan and Sara's song "Hell". I've watched it a dozen times, in awe of her expression and body language. I learned about myself. I connected to a brief moment of clarity.

Will the economy really push Mr. Vog to this?

When you have no money in the bank for the mortgage that is already due, desperation sets in. When the trucking company your husband works for in the United States falls short again, and again, and again.... When all the people who have bailed your family out financially can't help anymore you start looking for cash in ways that you'd never imagine. If THIS is all there is out there to keep a family from the streets, than you KNOW the country you call home is totally fucked. I'm not sure I am strong enough to allow someone who is my world, to do THIS to make sure his family is okay in this country. It is a long clip, but please watch it to see what has been asked of me by my husband. I DON'T THINK IT IS WORTH THE RISK FOR FUCKING SURVIVAL IN A FREE WORLD! This driver was a civilian contract truck driver in Iraq. Notice the tipped over truck in front of the driver who is filming this. The driver of the fallen truck did not live.

Ah-hum.

If we're taking it back a few years, allow me to refresh my memory. This is from September 2006.

Sunday: Attended a family birthday party in which no one in my family was having any fun. We all tried sticking it out, but after my crying son begged to leave 3 different times, my hubby pulled the plug on it and escorted us all to the car. This sucked. Who likes to leave a 5 year olds party on a wave of drama? Family behavior is a harsh reality, for both sides involved. Family and friends, at times, don't mix well together. Normally, I would choose blood family over friends. Lately, it seems that blood is not thicker than water, and that friends on both camps are becoming more like our family than our family is.

Unconditionally.

This blog needs a overhaul.

I am tired of the look of my blog. I have been trying to find a template that expresses my inner bullshit. I need to re-do the blogroll, as it hasn't been touched in a million years. Some of the blogs listed aren't even there, or have change with the times. Plus, with the existing layout I can't seem to have a followers section, or include twitter updates.

Maybe when it is lookin' all perty I'll post more...doubt it. Oh, and I am done making excuses about why I don't blog. If I post something, read it. If I don't post quick enough for your liking and you are sick of checking on it, I suggest a RSS feed thingy. Or, you can complain in the comment field and my staff will get back with you. It is what it is.

Mobile blogging is fine, it just doesn't allow decent character length for good posts...

Another holiday celebrated. Nice to see my family. I ate so much food, I feel sick. Too many sweets that my body isn't used to anymore.
For more up to date Camie fun, you can find me on FB or twitter

Ah-oh! I can blog through my phone!

Maybe mobile blogging is what this blog needs. I spend more time utilizing the web wonders with my phone, it was only a matter of time before I figured out how to navigate Blogger with it.
