Bloggers Block

I’ve been having serious bloggers block lately and, yes, it has to do with my stalker but also just a shift in attitude. I guess that comes with the territory. First of all, don’t you hate it when a friend leaves you a message on your voice mail that goes something like this, “Hey, I’ve got some crazy news! Call me back.” It’s like, hey not cool! If you have crazy gossip either don’t leave a message at all or say what the fuck it is! Am I right? So I don’t want to be that person and in my last post I said that my blog was being monitored. Although I probably shouldn’t say exactly what’s up, I will let you in as much as I can.
There is a lawsuit going on where I am a witness. It has to do with a woman who is suing someone who I have information about. I came forward to testify (I know this sounds very Law & Order, one of my all time favorite shows, but it’s not)as a witness. Well, things got ugly real fast and apparently, the other law firm decided that my blog would somehow prove that I don’t tell the truth or something like that. So my blog was presenting in the deposition in the hope that it will somehow discredit me as a witness. One of the posts that the lawyer for the defense brought up was a meme where I said that I don’t change my underwear everyday. Of course any mom worth her salt can attest to the fact that underwear changing would mean taking a shower and who does that everyday? No one I know. I’m not sure I did that even before I had a baby. But I digress. I suppose it feels weird to know that a law clerk is reading every entry hoping to find some nugget of I don’t know what that can be used against me. But fuck it. This is my truth with some humor mixed in. Funny enough, the law clerk told me that her sister is a new mom and she turned her on to my blog and now her sister reads it. Yeah, she didn’t say it in front of her boss but she did say it. I like that.
Here’s the thing; the person who is suing I believe is right and I feel it’s my duty to come forward and tell my story. Anyone who has had something bad happen to them would want another victim to come out and say it. Of course, this is Hollywood so that doesn’t come true as often as people would like. Hollywood is gross and I’m not proud that I’m a part of it. I’d love to live in another city and be involved in another industry but it just doesn’t seem to be an option at this point so I must soldier on and keep doing what I do. Now that this is off my chest, what I do is blog and I intend to keep doing it.

    wow. I can’t believe they brought your underwear into this. At least it got you another reader? I hope this ends favorably and quickly for you.

    I can’t imagine being depositioned about bloggerly confessions (especially about day(s)-old underwear). Good for you for sticking up for your friend. Keep telling your truth!

    That DOES sounds so very Law & Order. I can’t imagine what your underwear has to do with anything. I hope it is over soon!

    Would have commented sooner but was checking the CONSTITUTION BECAUSE I DO NOT RECALL ANYTHING ABOUT UNDERWEAR CHANGING REQUIREMENTS.

    I know plenty of liars who change their undies everyday. You know I support you in this whole dabacle. Remember the right thing is sometimes the hardest thing to do. Glad to see you posting again!

    Oh and will the sister of the law clerk please raise her hand? I’d love to say hi!

    I change my underwear everyday, I have a “thing” (brainwashed about feminine hygiene)about clean undies. However, I cannot remember the last time my children have bathed or showered since summer started. Does swimming in the pool count? Is Baquacel a carcinogenic?
    I hope things work out for the person you are testifying for.
    They are lucky to have you on their side. H

    You can only hope that a defense attorney who has NOTHING is going to stoop so low as to bring your underwear into it. Bastards.

    (Oh shit they’re reading this aren’t they. Don’t tap my phones.)

    I hope this is somehow selling a few more copies of your HILARIOUS BOOK.

    Did the lawyer think BEING a blogger underminded your credibility? Nice.

    Welcome back.

    And I don’t recall being sworn in to blog?!?!?!

    I could very well be a mermaid at the bottom of the ocean, popping up to divert cruise ships off course.

    And being a mermaid, I don’t have to change my panties every day. irrelevant.

    Irrelevant, I say.

    Underwear? Wow, talk about crazy! Sounds like they didn’t have much to go on, so they are just looking to grab onto something!!

    Good on you for standing up for truth, though!

    Ok, that is WAY f-ed up…meme’s as material evidence/character proving/whatever the legal term is?!?! Creepy, creepy creepy.

  18. sarcastic journalist said,

    So because you don’t change your underwear…you are a liar?

    I know plenty of liars that change their underwear every day…lawyers included.

    holy crapola! this stuff scares the crap out of me, and makes me extremely mad.

    that said–using that meme as “evidence”–it’s laughable isn;t it? isn;t it?
    please tell me it is. pleeeeease!

    very, very happy you’re still trucking. I;d be “off” it too.

    Holy sh–, that’s intense. And, hey, they’re not seriously looking on your blog for anything for the case, really–the case is just an excuse for them to read your blog, right!? So glad you decided to keep on keeping on. you’re great at what you do…. :)
