tires... it had to be fucking tires

.
so yeah.

as some of you may know there was a tire incident a couple of weeks ago which involved a flat tire and a missed class and a firing. I would have gotten fired *anyway* but nonetheless it was an expensive day.

and then today i leave my 8am class to run to my car to make my 9:30am class and there she sits... with ANOTHER fucking flat tire. Now I knew that I needed to tire up for the other pair but I had been hoping to wait until the middle of november because i really want to give my vet some cash.

but no.

the car had other ideas. it wanted new tires now.

so i had to run around on the ttc all morning and spring for some more fucking tires [made my 9:30 class by ONE minute!]. the nice man at crappy tire did sell them to me at the sale price though which i appreciated. still and all it wasn't the morning i was expecting.

i was *supposed* to teach a couple of classes, come home, have breakfast, blog, go teach again and come home. but no... no breakfast and no blogging for the sass. *grumble*

in fact i'm breaking my fast as i type this. okay since you asked... jordan's bunches of nuts granola with mango/apricot yogurt and a sliced up banana and a dash of nutella. yes it is fucking delicious thankyouforasking.

so i haven't had much to say for a few days... as some of you have noticed. That was due, in no small part to my slowly increasing teaching schedule, to band practise, to hanging out with my family and friends in person and to trying really hard to be less than a week behind on email. I failed at the email thingy... but i'm still better than some of my friends who don't even notice that they haven't answered my mail. I at least notice, I just can't do anything about it until I get a day off.

This is not something that's looking imminent.

Okay the point. I have a point I'm sure of it... where the fuck did I leave that thing? Walking around poking people without my permission... damm uppity points.

*grumble*
*mutter*
*paw through stuff in brain*

ah yes there it is.

lately i have not at all been inspired to post things that are deep and insightful. In fact my mood goes more like this:

"climbing gym"
"sore fingers"
"hawt guys"
"sore shoulders"
"crap get up early again"
"climbing gym"

this is not conducive to the thoughtful and insightful posts y'all seem to have come to expect. in fact it's hardly conducive to posting at all. it's more conducive to watching television and pretending the computer and the oddly uninspired blog aren't there.

because you know, if you don't look at the empty create post window then it isn't there.

shut up it is not.

So i'm not really sure what to do about this. What do the rest of you do if your muse leaves you for a day or a week or something? I don't want to delete my blog, that seems like overkill. And I don't want to stop blogging because I really like the group of people that gather on my blog and because well I really like blogging. It's good for my brain.

but still, SO uninspired right now. Got nothing.

No posts bouncing around in my brain. Well maybe one... it's about consideration and when people lost it... hrm must go start that...

okay so, the point is, there have been a lot of fantastic posts lately from several of the folks that I link. hell, dzer did FOUR FUCKING POSTS in one day on wednesday and one of them was about what it's like to be hot which inspired several other posts and so on and so on.

so i think a little lightness is in order and with that in mind... here:
my favourite baby picture (yes it's me but that's not why i love it!)


and just a funny for no reason:


Okay that's it... got nothin! Have an awesome friday night and get in lots of trouble!

Sass~You deserve a break. Take it and run with it.

It is hard to be philosophical and entertaining when your head is just not into it. Your readers will wait. We know you have a real life and need to live it. Go on with your bad self! We'll be here when you get back.

That is an awesome baby pic. So cute even with a scrunched up face. :)

hey jenn, happy friday

you're right it totally is... i just want to talk about how hard my day was and yet i know it was easy compared to working in an office...

isn't that the best? dad calls it 'even as a kid you didn't like being cooped up'

*I* call it 'even as a kid i fucking hated waking up'

I'm sorry your day sucked. Mine pretty much did too. I've got nothin' for the blog either. I'm a loser as usual.

I'm goin' to get the Boones Farm out. I have 4 bottles in the fridge. I'll share with ya!

11/04/2005 05:29:00 PM  
Blogger SignGurl said...

Oh, I should explain that Boones Farm is the cheapest wine you can buy. $1.89 a bottle. I don't even like wine but what the hell.

i'm totally into the sharing... especially if it's cheap and terrible! like schliss beer only wine...

now one rule... no calling yourself a loser on my blog or i'll be forced to to.... uh ... spank you!

I want one of those EGGS!

And you know what? I totally love the fact that you can schpeel about not being inspired, but still be funny as hell Sass.

That, is why, I heart you so.

Honestly, if you can't get around or inspired enough to post I think we all could understand. But we'll miss ya.

If you force yourself to do it, you just burn out.. and thats no fun.

I did reply to your email.. I DID.

yes u guys seemed so witty and smart and taking risks of talking about urselves ...

i thot all of u knew that.. at one point it became the only way to comment.. had to have a blog.. so i made up some shit and here we are a month later.. ohhhh i think it may be my anniversary tomorrow... another reason to have a shot or puff.. pick ur sin and lets begin again!

I was bullshitting. I'm a writer too and, fuck, I quit!

It's ok, Sass. We all have our moments where things in our head just don't seem to make it to the page -- not necessarily because our heart isn't it, but because of all kinds of extraneous circumstances.

Seriously, if you need to take a break, then take one. But don't do what I did!!! You'll snap back to it. I have :)

11/04/2005 06:17:00 PM

Ooo...that crop is sexy....please, sass, may I have another.

I was inspired by the wine to write a post about it, so, thanks!

punk: i'm so glad i inspired someone to write a blog... i think you made my day with that! And yeah buttah and bubbles kick ass!

i can smoke, client cancelled... where's teh bowl!

you know for most folks... your english gets better the more you blog.

blondie: sometimes you can't blog what you're thinking because the people it's about read your blog... and sometimes what you're thinking doesn't make sense in text...

you snapped back? you have a blog again? WHERE... i see where... now POST!

jenn: you know if i was a true domme i would say no....

off to read jenn's post!

Blogger Blondie said...

agreed, sass. in the circle of attachment and all that it can be troublesome. that was part of my problem -- i felt like i'd gotten to close to people to say any of what i was really thinking or feeling. and a lot of times, even if i really wanted to say something, i had no way to put it together in word form.

i'm working on it. it won't be 'up' for at least another week. you like the name, though?

Blogger Amber said...

I know all about being uninspired, got some of that going on now what with spending my life in travel and work almost totally exclusively. I try to write something every day, no matter how dull or I meme or I tack up some poetry cuz I have years of that and I could have a day job just putting it up. You're still way fun for someone so rushed :)

11/04/2005 06:32:00 PM  
Blogger sassinak said...

blondie: it's funny because i would happily blog about other bloggers because i know they get it... it's the drive bys and the family and the friends that aren't bloggers or who are friends first... how do i discuss them or my feelings around their behavious without hurting them?

amber: but you still have the best profile pic of all time. all.time.

i try to write every day myself but i'm slipping to 4-7 times a week instead of always seven...

but yeah... thank god for tags!

11/04/2005 06:42:00 PM  
Blogger sugarpunk said...

well sass... im certainly glad i made ur day.. makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside to know i did a good thing ...

one reason i write like this.. well becuz i am no grammar major.. and i dont pretend to be ... LOL my daughter would DIE if she read it.. hell she corrects my speech .. and sometimes my brain goes faster than my skills

and i suppose i am more careful of what i write .. but only becuz im a lil shy .. and maybe a lil afraid to face it.. so if i put it in print.. i have to face it

thanks for ur list comment.. i just had nothing to talk about specifically so i thot some of u would get to know me

11/04/2005 06:45:00 PM  
Blogger sassinak said...

i do quizzes or tags when i got nothing but i did a quiz on my last post and doing two in a row seemed sort of like cheating...

i think your grammar is fine... my only beef is how you say u instead of you... but i'm canadian and we're funny that way *grin*

i thought it was a great list... i may do one myself :)

well the english language is getting a bit murdered by the text message phenomenon so it's nice to try and use it well when you write...

nice to *try* but not nice to be mean about it :)

Good point. The only things I can think of to do are to change your URL and not tell them or brace yourself for confrontation.

Sometimes I think that having two blogs -- one fairly non-anonymous and the other COMPLETELY anonymous -- is the way to go. Then you have the chance to vent, without as much of a chance of hurting the people you're venting about.

11/04/2005 07:05:00 PM  
Blogger sassinak said...

punk: do you mean to leave giant openings like that? :)

blondie: i thought about starting another blog and so far i've just saved questionable posts until either a) i didn't need them anymore or b) anything i mentioned was irrelevant to my current life...

can't change the url... totally addicted to y'all

Sux about the tires. Better now then when you're out in BFE somewhere, which happened to me once. make sure your spare is good is all i can say.

I guess I slept in WAY too long. All the beautiful chicas are sitting around sass's blog gossiping and nattering on about the one day when I posted four times? LOL

First, it was a boring kind of day. Second, the posts weren't all that long and detailed — many of you, and myself sometimes — have longer single posts.

And sass, you know that I often blog about meaningless and utile things. In fact, sometimes I've blogged about having nothing to blog about.

That's the beauty of the blog — it can be about anything and nothing, sometimes at the same time.

And yes, I am a writer. And a writer writes. Doesn't always mean work writing, or creative writing, but I can't help writing ... just like I can't help reading. Love them both.

Rock on sass ... and if you EVER again even hint at giving up your blog or deleting it, I will fly to Canada, pull yer fine ass off the climbing wall, and spank yer axe-wielding, pilates-practicing ass!! LOL

punk: tequila friday was most definetely a success although i am only now getting intoxed for real. okay i admit it, i smoked a bowl before climbing :)

cast: i hate to admit this but i am already hella loving the new tires. makes me realise how bad they actually were! and yeah they were so fucked i didn't even change to the spare, just drove the four blocks to crappy tire.

sonus: we aim to please. it's a full service blog here don'tcha know? glad i could remind...

dz: well you were amazing that day. the sad part is that the best post was first so it didn't get nearly the attention it deserved.

and deez we've both had meaningless posts... and people like us anway *g*

oh i miss books... i have no time to read and i no longer allow myself reading in bed due to insomnia...

oh no dude i'm sorry for hinting that... trust me, as of right now i see no possibility of my blog going anywhere!

but maybe i'll threated again to get you to come visit!

get a real spare. ditch the donut thingie, for 50 bucks discounttire.com has steel rims for just about every make/model. head down to your local tire place and pickup a used tire that is the SAME size as your other tires and you're good to go. when you air your tires check the spare. i canned the donut in the honda after A bitched about having to drive exactly 50mph home when she had her flat. *snicker*

I can't believe it took me so long to get here! What was I thinking? Any how when my muse leaves me I find theft most helpful. Perhaps I mean borrowing is most helpful. There are no original ideas just original ways to present them. It's Saturday night and no ones around so I'm off to get stoned and eat marshmallow fluff! Cheers!
