National Blog Posting Month

As I'm fighting to stay awake for some unknown reason I hit my blog roll and discovered that it was National Blog Posting Month being sponsored by Blogher.com.  The goal of the month is to just blog everyday.  They have prompts there you can use (except on the weekends during which you can write about whatever you want).  I'll probably be using their prompts more on the weekend than any other time because as you know I can ramble about anything.  The last day to join in on the fun is November 5th so get to it quick especially if you've already blogged on the 1st and 2nd.

I don't really need a prompt because I could just ramble about how adorable I thought Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert were on the CMA's that I didn't actually watch but got the gist of later thanks to videos and HuffPo.  But that would make me sad because there's no one that I have that makes people go they are so adorable.  Don't get me wrong my relationships tend to start that way but by the end it's just sad.  Not as sad as Nicole and Tom in Eyes Wide Shut but definitely sad.  I haven't had a Lazarus relationship yet (a la Mr. and Mrs. Smith--on life support and something makes it respark and life is fantastic) but I think it's because I'm not always sure I want them to come back and even when I know I'm never ever sure they can come back.  But anyhoo, they were adorable and kind of the perfect example of what I mean when I talk about someone that makes you feel safe.  Safe enough to explore the sore spots and not worry about how it will be perceived by anyone else because you genuinely have each others backs.

The prompt for Thursday was: Tell us your favourite quotation and why.  My favorite quote is by Dorothy Parker which I saw in a gorgeous journal that I grabbed at Barnes and Noble many moons ago when most of us still did our journaling with a pen and paper.  There are tons of quotes in there about love and if you ever get a chance you should so pick up a copy and find the one that makes you smile.  That's what the quote did for me.  It made me think about my love life and it's erratic nature that all seemed to come back to one thing, passionate blazing energy that couldn't quite be trusted.  If I showed you a flip book of some my exes you'd know I had an ABSOLUTE blast with just looking at some of them.  And the battle, the war, the conquering was blissful.  But as all bright fires do they burn out.  Not fit for long term consumption without proper stoking and well it just wasn't there.  So there we are full circle from my initial bit of rambling and I'm still searching for the partner that makes me feel safe enough to write songs with and watch cartoons with and lay on the couch and do absolutely nothing with.  Safe like I used to feel with Dad.  And loved and accepted.  That seems like it should be included but can you really feel that safe with someone without feeling loved and accepted?  I'll let you know if I ever finally figure it out.  If you're still reading, behold the wonder that is Dorothy Parker--a woman so fierce she ended up being the title of a Prince song and a pretty good song at that.

“By the time you swear you're his,
Shivering and sighing.
And he vows his passion is,
Infinite, undying.
Lady make note of this --
One of you is lying.”
