A Rambling- that I'm not sure makes any sense, doesn't have much direction, but I meant well

Last week, I bitched about my internet provider and a glitch in my e-mail. I was self-congratulatory on my limited profanity during the service calls that were less than helpful.

A few hours after I posted that, I received an e-mail from the Manager of Communications with my internet provider. DOH! Me and my big mouth. Note to self: use code words and not the real businesses names, dumb ass, Tena!

He noted that he was NOT giving me a Thank You Card for not cursing too much, but I secretly think he was really proud of me- I could see it in his font! He was very kind and is trying to iron out the kinks in my e-mail situation- so go me, I think!

This got me thinking of the power of the interwebz! It can make you feel like you're a big deal, but I'm too much of a realist, and know you're just not that into me. But this place can make you a bit paranoid... like when I Twitter about liking Yo Gabba Gabba- and next thing I know, DJ Lance is 'following' me! That's some weird shit and can totally mess with your mind!

Then I worry about how far is too far? There are not too many real life people that I know that read this and, God willing, that will stay the same, so I don't have to worry about second-guessing my tourette fingers!

I'm pretty sure my mom doesn't know how to get to my blog. But just to be safe, I haven't written the post about her recent weight loss from 130- 100lbs and how my sister and I think that she's anorexic or how I wish I knew her trick to anorexia- because that would make me look bad and horribly vain and unstable- and we can't have that! Plus I'm pretty sure the trick is just NOT EATING- and food is one of my favorite things and I hardly need another thing that makes me feel like failure, damn that anorexia! Good thing I never wrote that post!

I've fallen victim to Six Degrees of Separation on my blog and on Twitter. I thought the one place I could really let loose was on other people's blog's comments, right? Now, some, you don't know how they feel about cussing or they use the word 'arse' and I know they aren't ready for my kind. But with a few, such as Tiffany, they make my explicit lyrics look like nursery rhymes. I can totally let loose- especially when she's reviewing Clitoral Stimulators!

She spoke of how the sex toy that she coined "Black Bastard" (which had no reference to it's heritage- if so, she may have gotten the" chainsaw power" she was looking for- at least that's what I hear!) took a while to get her going and how she likes to get hers as "quick as possible".

I commented:

"I'm just like that- I want it over fast- foreplay is for pussies- do your thing
so I can get back to blogging, fucking Black Bastard."

Except I misspelled 'pussies' as 'puusies' which totally took away from the dynamics, but oh well, you get the idea, I'm not a cuddler.

A couple of hours later, I get an e-mail from The Eden Fantasys dude (yep, the one that makes all the magic happen!) thanking me for my comment. He rocks and that was very cool of him to take his time out to send me a Thank You for my cursing- see internet dude- some people appreciate it!

So, it's official, I cannot escape the power of the interwebz. And I've decided to deal with it and enjoy it. Not so much that I'm linking my blog on my Facebook page because that would be social suicide- one hyphenated word: in-laws!

Anyway, I am what I am. I am what I blog. I am what I tweet. I am what I comment. No apologies. Yet.

You go! I went to nicknames and a new blog address because of my MIL lurking on my site for over a year and never mentioning it to me. She may be back, but oh well. She knows now I won't hesitate to bitch about her!

I won't FB friends with my MIL. I just noticed the other day she is on FB and I will ignore that friend request if it comes through.

TentCamper said...

Well said my dear! As far as commenting and posting...fuck what people think. if one wants to masturbate, and blog about it...or call someone a fucking asshole...or post pictures of oiled boobs....HAVE AT IT!!!!
Sex toys rock and if you can't take it....I thing Disney has a blog.

(was that too much?)

Lee of MWOB said...

No apologies and THAT is why we love you.

Right. On.

Mary Moore said...

Jeez, my MIL is my friend on Facebook. Now I'm thinking that was a big mistake...but she doesn't YET know about my blog...I think.

Sticky (not too) said...

No apologies! Ever.
Really have to reconsider telling anyone I actually KNOW about my blog - or Facebook, for that matter. Why do I have Facebook again?

Soxy Deb said...

Love means never having to say your sorry, and we LURVE you. Dearly not queerly. Just sayin...

Dorsey said...

I would totally be all over that shit if my toy company wanted me to do reviews! Because I loves me some toys.

Dawn@Embracing the Ordinary Life said...

Soo...I hope this doesn't make you feel like a totally loser...but that guy at Eden emailed me too...showered me with tons of compliments...and offered me a freebee...

Oh yes...he can read my mind...and you gotta be you...no matter where you are!!

I mentioned in a recent post that Comcast (our internet service provider) needed to pull its head out of it ass and my internet fixed. Someone from there company emailed me too. Why is it that some guy in some corporate Comcast office can take notice of my problems only after I post it for the world to see but the local people who were supposed to be actually fixing the problem could care less?

Eudae-Mamia said...

So what you're telling me is that my paranoia over the whole Blogosphere thing is totally justified? I swear my in laws found mine some how - they are officially off limits now. And so are sex toys, darn it.

DJ Lance is following you!? Lucky duck!

Mrs4444 said...

I love the freedom that comes from being able to express myself in comments, because my blog and Facebook are so public. Not going to be writing about Black Bastard, but if the mood strikes me, I will. Thanks for being such a good role model in this regard, Tena! :)

And BTW, the Word Verifications is "dundat." Gave me a chuckle.

Just A Chic... said...

Hell...we all know if it pops in my head it comes out my mouth. I don't give a rats ass who's around. I figure if people don't love me the way I am they ain't worthy of my love damn it! You keep rockin on...cause I think you're alright for a white girl. ;-)

Elaine A. said...

That freaks me out about Twitter too. The first time that happened to me I said something about Trader Joe's and all the sudden they were following me. Just a little creepy....

amelia bedelia said...

My question is are you getting free stuff from the sex toy dude? by the way, i love your blog. I live vicariously through you...since I can't post what I really want to since my MOTHER IN LAW reads!!!

Jenni Jiggety said...

You just never know who is reading your comments, huh?

Could be the guy from Eden's Fantasy...could be the mailman...

Dr Zibbs said...

Ohhh some sexy talk going on over here huh?

Amy said...

Welll damn i didnt get a sex toy dude resonce. WTF. I want to review a sex toy. I am so jelous now.

Tiaras & Tantrums said...

I happen to find you very entertaining - arse and all!!

Mariah said...

Thanks for this today--lately I've been feeling like everything I say is judged, so much so that I almost took my whole blog down today. Instead I went private for a day, edited a few things and put it back up!! Fuck what people think

Deb said...

Don't apologize!! Just have fun.

Annie said...

See...........I thought about going public but then the few people I did give my blog to passed it on & so.............I quit! I like a little anonymity after all!

My word verify is logrot.
That makes me laugh.

Deb said...

i think i have said this before, but the day people in my life find out about this is the day it comes down. my hubs is sworn to secrecy and i have told NO one.

Brittany said...

I think the BEST part of this whole thing is...that super awesome sex toy dude...IS OUR BLOGHER SPONSOR! WOOT!

Threeboys1mommy said...

OMG!!! Have you seen the new DJ Lance Rock hat/glasses toy!?!? I've never wanted something so bad in my life!!!

Tiffany said...

LOL Hell fucking yea! I KNEW he would find your comment. And you MUST name your toy. It's required...by me. LOL
