Well I missed my first post. Last night I fell asleep fairly early, for me anyways, and obviously I didn't wake up like I have in the past. I'm less disappointed than I thought I would be but I think that's because I have been doing so much better than I expected. Especially when you factor in my posts to Harry's blog.

To atone for yesterday I've posted the serving suggestions for the veggie dip we used at our Super Bowl party to Harry's blog.

I also think that part of the reason I'm a little less than disappointed is that I'm not sure I'm getting out of this blog what I was hoping to. I think part of me was hoping that I would be able to vent, and thereby reduce some of my stress. Instead I feel a little constrained because I don't feel like I can open up because any of the people I might want to vent about could read the blog, thereby creating social friction.

And I say again, I don't mean that I'm going to say evil horrible stuff about people I just mean that when you spend any great amount of time with someone, unless you have the patience of a saint OR they are a saint... somethings they do are going to annoy you. I have considered using a technique that one audio blogger I listen to does and both combine, divide and pseudonym-ize people in his life so that while they could possibly figure out who they are, they generally don't. The only problem with that is that my social circle is fairly small, and my work would generally be classified as a mom-and-pop with less than 10 people. They'd probably have an easy time of it.

I'll try and be better about posting earlier in the evening when I'm not as likely to fall asleep.
