Blog Menopause

by Marinka on March 10, 2010

My blog is going through changes, a sort of menopause.

Which means that on some days, like the last two, I’ll been posting twice a day. A main post full of wisdom and social import, and a second mini post in the afternoon, devoted to a Young Ladrinka quip or comment. Yes, I know, I have two children, but since, “Mommy, this week, please send my allowance to help the people of Haiti” is a typical contribution from my daughter, I am officially rejecting her as blog fodder.

To ease the pressure on you, gentle reader, I am going to close comments on the second, shorter post. But you will still be responsible for the contents for our weekly quiz and of course on the final exam. So skim at your own peril.

And yes, I’m very well aware that now that I’ve put it out there in the universe, my fingers will fall off, I’ll lose internet access and Young Ladrinka will take a vow of silence. In which case, we’ll resort to Nicki news.

Nicki news so far: I’m worried that she’s forgotten how to make Meow, because I haven’t heard it at all recently. Although maybe everything has been going according to her wishes, so she’s had no cause to complain.

And finally, I want to add a “weight loss/exercise” category to this blog, but I can’t think of a catchy name. It’s hard to top catchy category titles like “John” and “Kids”.

What about “Torture From the Motherland”? and mama can give advice? We love mama, oh, and you too, of course! And what evil could ladrinka’s sweet sister have done?

I have a stupid California question. It isn’t stupid to Californians, because no one I’ve asked knows the answer. I know you will find it stupid, but I have no one else to ask, and it’s your fault that you mentioned the cat and got me thinking.

Sooo… I have an indoor/outdoor cat. What do people do with their cats when it snows? Do they allow them outside or is that cat suicide? Are they stuck indoors for the entire winter season, slowly meowing their owners into insanity? Except yours, of course, since Nicki lost her meow.

Cats are not terribly interested in hanging out outside in the company snow. There, problem solved. Cats are helpful that way.

i am a rule girl. thanks for spelling the rules out so clearly for us. i will try to obey!

as you well know, i read your blog faithfully-and it is well designed for sure- but i usually zone in for the treat of the day-and *poof* i’m off to bigger and brighter blogs .

i just firmly took notice of your blog roll. dear gay friend John has only 12 links- Nicki 16…ahhh, what’s up with that?

i’d say they’re about equal w/ insane ass stories- and poo episodes…so how does that rat of a cat win over on our ever so clever witty John? “is wit not enough?” ask John- i’m sure he has the answer.

I just call it “exorcise”.

Now it’s not enough to be hilariously funny once a day, you have to up the stakes to twice a day.

Can we say “overachiever”?

Ahhh I love the quips about Husbandrinka, ladrinka, lassrinka or Nicki. So … all fodder is good fodder if you ask me!

The weight loss catchy column … how about “losing the luggage”?

Upping the swagger, I see. Well played. Can’t wait to read more of Ladrinka’s gems. Will the final exam be when Susan has made you walk so much that you are too weak to blog? Also, re the excercise section, how about: Weight No More!!!! Hilarious!!1! I found it here.

Heres an idea:
Poof, Now it’s GONE!


March 11, 2010 at 3:11 pm

how about calling the exercise/diet thing: Lack of Improvement? that’s what i call my personal regime.

Twice a day? TWICE A DAY???? I’m lucky to get into mine twice a week. Ugh – now I feel like such a slacker.

Ah blog menopause. I understand how you feel. I feel like my blog is going through a teen angst phase. Why me? Somebody please read me!

I just moved to wordpress and started a weight loss category–I call it ‘The Little Panties’ (weird, I know–I have my reasons) which is sure to get me in trouble with the internets and bring me perverts with questionable intentions….
