Yawnsville

.
I had occasion to go shopping at the supermarket the other day.
.
I got in my car and drove the 10 minute, uneventful journey.
.
I picked my trolley from the long line of them.
.
I 'ummed' and 'ahhhed' over the apples and bananas.
.
I put what I needed in my trolley and paid for it.
.
I drove home and unpacked it all.
.
.
There.
.
.
Wasn't that the most intensely boring blog-post you've ever read?
.
I bet you were waiting for something *mad* or *crazy* to have happened.
.
I don't know what's going on.
.
My blog used to be a place of fun and silliness.
.
"Oh you're so funny Emma".
"Your blog makes me smile Emma".
"I love visiting your blog Emma".
.
Maybe the pressure to be funny got too much?
.
I still feel funny inside.
.
(Not a "quick, call the doctor" kind of funny you understand).
.
I'm still leaving funny witicisms on other people's blogs.
.
I just have no more funny for my blog.
.
I can't keep boring you with my photographs - that's what flickr's for.
.
I even disassociated my blog from jb*jb so that I could be a bit more personal without worrying that customers might read it and think I was, you know, weird.
.
I don't even have a funny ending for this post.
.
Anyone have any suggestions?

It was an amusing post. Not bust your sides laughing post. But an amusing post. You are engaging and amusing and immensly talented. Dont stress. I like to try and be funny but but finding it hard to muster right now. My blog posts are all about my sewing machine and computer going "funny", and not even in an amusing way. And Im in a grumpy mood with a raging abcess in my tooth, and a face so swollen it makes me look like a lead actor from the cast of Elephant man. If you want a laugh perhaps I could post a picture. No honestly you are doing a good job. Just relax and dont pressure yourself... :0)xxx

The thing is, I was thinking, yeah, she's right, not as funny as she used to be, but then I scrolled down to the photo of the cats and chuckled out loud. You still have it!

go to work... come home.. eat dinner.. faff... rinse and repeat.

I haven't read earlier posts to see how funny you were, but it was still an amusing post I could relate to. I think people like to connect with a real person, not just a joke machine.
My blog isn't funny at all. That's ok, It's not like I am forcing anyone read it ;)

Vicky said...

I have to say I feel the same as Nickynackynoo - I too thought "hmm not funny" but chuckled out loud at the photo of the cats. So yeah - you still have "it". x
