Top 10 Reasons You Should Be Glad I Didn’t Blog in My Twenties

1. When I read my journals from that period in my life, I mostly enjoyed listing what I ate that day. My blog would have been a non-funny, really bad version of Brigit Jones’ Diary. What I’m saying is I don’t think anyone would have bought the movie rights.

2. Drunk Blogging: I gotta be honest and say that many journal entries were written after a night out with quite a few Long Island Iced Teas creating havoc in my blood stream. A lot of really deep thoughts fizzled out mid-sentence. I can only imagine how shitty I would feel after realizing I’d hit “publish” in a blackout.

3. There would be virtually no talk about parenting which is…well sorta why people read my blog. On the other hand, no talk about parenting!

4. There probably would have been multiple instances of me writing “Talk to the hand.” And no, I probably wouldn’t have been being ironic.

5. The biggest story going when I was in my twenties was AIDS and AIDS is not as funny as you’d think to write about.

6. If you don’t like it when I do posts on American Idol you really would have hated my Star Search recaps

7. No husband bitching.

8. Due to my obsessive nature, all posts about my dating life would have started out “He STILL hasn’t called!”

9. I can’t think of a number nine due to all the partying I did in my 20’s.

10. You would have been subjected to pictures like THIS!

    It looks like you and that cat were in a race to see who could reach the bed first, and the cat won. You should have made your hair bigger.

    Hey, I had a rental cat in my twenties, too! (I hope you didn’t pay extra for the insurance. That’s a total rip-off.)

    Your pictures look so glam – well, except the cat. Probably all that Star Search. It really taught each of us how to be a lady.

    Don’t kill me but you looked like Fran Drescher from The Nanny in that first picture. 😉

    Love the post, and you look exactly the same (except for the hair thank god).

    Also I say thank god because I am in my 40s, too. The 80s RULED!
