A dog dropped on its head too many times has more computer savvy than I do, but I love to write.  I’m a divorced, middle-aged South Dakotan who works in retail.  I love to bitch about everything.  I was raised well, by 2 really nice people, but I overcame that.  If I ever take a picture of me where I don’t look like a gay serial killer, I’ll post it on that Gravatar thing.

Update: I’m not so sure about this picture either, but what the hell, it’s a picture.

  1. Well you are one step ahead of me, I can’t seem to figure out that whole Gravatar thing. Nice to meet you!

    Gay serial killer, huh? Tell me, what exactly does one of those look like? Just incase I come across one, you know. Need to know what I’m looking out for. A man with a chain-saw and pink hair, perhaps…?!

    • Chain saw and pink hair might be a dead giveaway; they usually look pretty bland though. Try googling “Herb Baumeister” or (although he wasn’t gay, as far as I know) “Ted Bundy”–looked like the all-American boy next door to the public. No, I just think that I sound like a dork when I hear my speaking voice recorded somewhere and I try too hard to smile in pictures and look like a goofball. You look stern in your Gravatar picture, Belle–thinking homicidal thoughts towards the webcam, maybe? Hmmm.

  3. I don’t know, Belle, you’re looking pretty cheery in that new picture, almost like a disarming female serial killer trying to lure some unsuspecting guy in. Just kidding; it’s a great picture. You look, as you said in a comment, “hot and irresistible.” In fact, do you have any unattached aunts about my age who look as nice as you, and want to visit South Dakota in the middle of winter? 😉

      Haha! Sadly not (your age that is [which I am guessing as I don’t actually know what that is!]).
      And thanks for that comment – you’ve just made it look like I think I’m ‘hot and irresistible’!! Could I be any more up my own arse?! Pmsl x

    Haha! PMSL = piss myself laughing

  5. You’re so gay. Just kidding. I mean, if you are gay, that’s cool. I’m a friend of the gays so if you were gay, I would be totally cool with that. Not that it matters if I’m totally cool with that, but I’m just saying. Ok, I’ve said enough. Thanks for dropping by.


    • LMAO–no, dontmakethatface, I’m not gay, though, who knows, maybe I’d have better luck on Friday nights. I really really hate how I look in most pictures though. Really enjoyed wandering around your blog.
      Thank YOU for stopping by.

  6. I also have a healthy disdain for how I look in photos. I’m hoping to change that soon with an aging certificate/coupon thing I’ve been holding onto for a professional photo session. How on earth is it that a person can look like they chewed nails for breakfast and saved a few to spit at you right after the shutter clicked– and on another day look like a boring smiling idiot? I hope I look like neither in real life.

    I laughed out loud at what you wrote in your intro! It took me a long time to figure out how to do some things on the computer (and this site) that eight year olds have probably been doing since they were five! You’ll get here soon enough, I’m sure. (If you haven’t already!) Anyway, nice to meet you. 🙂

  7. I love the title of this blog! And I love the blog too!

  8. this is extremely witty…thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment. i shall now motor through yours. continue…

  10. Nice to meet another techie like me. why don’t we go into the computer repair business together and destroy the world with a unique blend of incompetence and clumsiness

    I nominated you for an award, my friend. Feel free to do a celebratory (clothing-optional) dance in your living room. Or something. http://mrsfever.wordpress.com/2013/02/11/hunh-whattaya-know/

    We have some blog friends in common; at least that’s what WordPress says.
    I like your attitude and your knack for communicating. My first glimpse was “bitter choice”. What an amazing and dense piece of work my new friend. You have a new fan.

  13. I wouldn’t say gay serial killer. I’d say Fred Dryer and Vincent Price’s secret love child. Not bad, really. But you’re too articulate for South Dakota. I grew up in Iowa, so I know. It’s like being an excellent tap dancer in Alaska: who the hell is gonna notice?

    LOVED this ‘about me’ page. Hilarious! Followed based on that alone. I’m a risk-taker that way.

  15. I don’t know what you’re worried about, you’re way prettier than me in any of my photos. Btw, would you ever consider having an Aussie penpal? I’m kinda stuck for intellectual stimulation here in the sticks and I always like reading your blog posts – I’d like to know more about you!
