Adventures with Dr. Lady Cutie Troublemaker

Life is in flux BIG TIME these days. I want to keep in touch with all of my peeps. The Internet is this beautiful thing. I can move to a brand new city and still stay in easy, near-daily contact with the people I love. When I feel connected to the people in my life that matter, I am unstoppable!

Blarty at Helios on Tuesday!

I’m pretty sure blog birthdays aren’t really real causes for celebration, but I’ve been feeling like having a party, and so I’m gonna! My place is a bit too small, so I’m crashing CafĂ© Helios Tuesday night 7pm until close with all my favorite friends and readers. So far, 25 have confirmed. I feel like I should make a cake… or bring some sort of tangible representation of my blog, so people can walk up to it and comment at it or something. Any ideas?

I was just taking a walk down memory lane. I can’t post what I was doing 5 years ago today, because that was before it all began, but 4 years ago today, I was discussing my obsession with Google Maps. 3 years ago today, I got caught in a blackout in my favorite pub in Jamaica Plain (my Boston neighborhood) and took pictures. 2 years ago, I was talking about my practice test scores on my licensure exam. One year ago, I was suffering from terrible Monkey Mind (Is it seasonal? Because it’s happening again.). Here is the result: Stream of Consciousness.

Five years is 1,825 days, and all together, I’ve posted 1,480 times. That’s an average of 4 out of every 5 days! It’s a lot, and there was a time when I was frequently posting 2-3 times a day. As with pictures, I post when I like. Since the dawn of Twitter Google Shared Reader (shared RSS) and Tumblr, I no longer use my blog to repost or share items created by other people. This is something I used to do often. In recent years, my posts have become much less frequent, but I still like having the blog. You won’t see 1,825 posts if you search. I have hidden large sections of my archives, just because I don’t see that there’s much of a reason for anyone to be able to have total access to everything I’ve ever posted – well, anyone other than me.

Anyway, point is: Tuesday, 7pm-12am. If we’re friends, or you read my blog, you are invited. Hope to see you there!

Congratulations, Abby! Watch out Helios, there are bloggers on the loose! I was going to leave a comment on some older entries but the comments were disabled for them already.
