Blogging, Home and Family, Work


April 24, 2005

Blog’s in need of CPR. Lots going on, but I can’t write about the angst because…well…

(whispers) People at work read my blog. A peril of bragging about your personal website, I s’pose.

Anywho, today Mom&I went to the Philadelphia Art Museum to see the Dali exhibit. Except that the exhibition was sold out…and is until 5/16 apparently. I would have checked it online, but the page was down. So we ended up seeing the non-Dali works. No biggie. But I really wanted to see some messed-up stuff.

No, I did not run up the Art Museum steps. I’ve done it before, anyway. It’s a rite of passage here. 😉

Everyone is so hushed and reverential in the museum. Until they reach the modern/abstract section. Then the eyes roll. I seriously think that the ‘art’ that consists of splattered paint or a black streak on white canvas hurts the art world more than the experts imagine.

Mom likes Monet. She asked me who my favorite artist was. I drew a blank. (Yeah, you THOUGHT I was going to say Walt Disney, didn’t you? Ha!) How uncouth can I be? I have no favorite artists. Must research this ‘art’ thing.

Yesterday Thor and I (but mostly Thor) tore some bushes out from the front of our house. They were mostly dead and blocked the living room windows. We (mostly Thor) sawed them down to some stumps, which won’t budge. So tomorrow I’ll have to call a stump-removal guy.

Ugh. See how boring this is now? There is SO much angst I could share but noooooooooo… I had to advertise my blog at work and I really don’t want them all knowing my business.

Quote from (non-blogging) brother: “Your blog is boring now. The last time you posted it was about a library.”

Resolution: Posts every day this week.

    I’ve been a reader of your blog for over a year – and have even peeked back at the archives. Two comments:

    1) The Blog is definitely not boring. Yes we all have a dud of a post at times (the library one didn’t make me do handstands – just kidding :-)). Seriously, the only thing I miss are the days when you had your plans for the day posted (i.e. what you were gonna eat and do for the day).

    2) I may be missing something – but I really haven’t ever seen you blog anything specific to your job. And if you have mentioned a specific, it wasn’t anything incriminating (did I spell that right) You may have put something general out there.

    As always – keep up the great work!

    “We try to encourage people to actually go inside the Art Museum, too,” Moore said. “But a lot of people just want to run up the steps.”

    Love it.

    Just do what my wife did. Keep your existing public blog and create a second “members only” blog for getting out the angst. Invite the people you trust with that knowledge and just don’t tell the rest. 😉

    (note: I don’t have access to her private blog. I figure there’re things she needs to get out that are either A) about me, or B) things I don’t need to know about.)
