Things I reveal about myself in comments.

I remember reading one time a while back, that So & So (cant for the life of me remember who) tends to reveal more about themselves in comments, then they do in their posts. I have found this statement to be soo true and thought I would share these little tidbits.

Tinkerschnitzel might recognise these things about me, they are all the comments I have left with her. Sept 09' to now.

I am doing two blankets at once. I use a skein for 8 rolls on one blanket and then finished the skein in a granny square 8 wide. One of these yrs I'll finish them! LOL
*
I did the same thing, made a bunch of baby blankets in the hope of... I ended up giving them to my best friend.
*
Oh my goodness! I did have to stubble across THIS post. I have my own horror story on my myspace blog. Same company! I messed with them for five months (this year) to get my bill straightened out and it was THEIR fault. They put up a good fight but lost in the end and even sent me a refund!

After good service with them for 18yrs, we moved and from that moment we had nothing but a huge headache. They were charging us for unlimited long distance, but yet still charging for every call. every month the said it was straightened out but then the bill would come in even higher still, it got up in the $600's. I can't even count how many different ppl I was passed off to. It got to where I couldn't even stand to here the name AT&T. I forgot to mention: we are no longer with them, we switched over to Sage Telecom
*
Oh, how I wish I had a dentist appointment! Maybe Tuesday.
I know what you mean about feeling like a kid in the presence of the grandparents. I always feel that way, no matter how old I get.
$20 a yard, holy cow! I don't think I have ever seen material that high.
*

The rain! We have had rain for the most part of a month, just when it seems like it is drying up here it comes again. I tend to stay indoors on rainy days, if I can.
*
$200 for a sewing class! That's what I should be doing, teaching a class! I didn't know there was that kind of money in it. Wow!
*
Ottoman, interesting. I've never thought about doing one. I tried my chair once, not so good, disaster really. I had to get my mother in law to fix it. LOL.
*
Smoking..nasty habit, but somebody's gotta do it..I'm right there with ya. I started ..umm 31 years ago and no I'm not going to quit until I just can't afford to anymore
*
Tim Curry, haven't heard that name in awhile. I like him too.
*
It is sad that people can't at least turn off their light. Very rude!
*
Chili and spaghetti, we can eat on for days. Never learned to make smaller pots.
*
We are in San Antonio, were mostly Air Force here. I was glued to the tv all day. Still hard to conceive that someone could do that. To have so little care for others and their families, beyond my comprehension. Very sad day for the country.
*
I got my eye on a ottoman, thought about trying my hand at making one but I just don't have the upholstery gene.
*
Thanks for the tips. I haven't tried the Mr.Clean Eraser, I was waiting to see if anyone else had any luck with them. I hate buying things and then find out they are worthless. I will be trying those diapers too. Thanks
*
Goodness! That sounds horrible. I had one of those times back in 05'. Grandparents sick or dying and 2 good friends too. Very horrible
*
I was informed yesterday that I need to keep a tight lid on the money this year. How tight, he never did say. I need to know numbers!!
*
Weatherman says we will have a 70% chance of snow Friday, it's like the whole state of Texas comes to a screeching halt. Too funny!
*
All of my plants died in the heat wave!
*
At least your hubby knows something about computers. If mine was to break down, I am on my own or begging brother to come and fix it.
*
I would have thought that working in a church would be nice and calm. I am rethinking this conclusion.
*
I have managed to let things go for the last two days and oh boy it is noticeable!
*
I am so glad we are not buying for the grand kids till after the actual Christmas day. We get to wait till they come back from the in-laws.
*
I too remember the feeling of having a Christmas delivered to our house. Our local truancy officer and his family adopted us one year. It was wonderful!
*
I remember the snow that Waxahachie got in 84'. I blew my mind that it snowed in Texas. My dad had said that when we moved from Maine, we would never see snow again. I believed him till 84'. LOL
*
My goal for this year is to get my bedroom finished this year! That is all I can think about, right now. I want it so badly!
*
That is the first thing I ask, before going to see the grand kids "Is anyone sick?"
*
I HATE shopping for bras!
*
Funny, I was just telling my mom this very thing. She needs some down time away from the grand kids!
*
I too give kudos to the stay at home moms. My daughter is one of them and I marvel at her sanity.
*
Your dog likes coffee too! I can't take my eyes off my cup for a second!
*
I loved Anne Rice's older books. My favorite is "The Witching Hour" series.
*
I know that feeling. I once got bit by a scorpion in my sleep and for days afterward I would be scared of everything. I shook by bed every night!
*
I haven't put any thought into the menu for this week.
*
Last night was leftover chicken cut up with brown gravy and sauteed mushrooms, poured over a baked potato.
*
Mexican food sounds really good right now.
*
One of these days I'm going to find something fun to do
A pottery or ceramics class sounds interesting.
*
Weird, who is out and about at four in the morning. I'm still up but not out and about.
*
Nothing is better with tomato soup, than grilled cheese
*
I like to go through things every once in a while to get some giggles, but not for work.

Heck, this post resembles my brain! A jumbled mess of crazy information! LOL!

Elaborate on your statements and you might have an autobiography! I'd never thought about how much I reveal in comments...scary, now that you mention it!

Lucy said... [Reply to comment]

I run off at the mouth and Mind anyway, so I better watch myself. Funny!!

Maureen@IslandRoar said... [Reply to comment]

How do you have all these comments to post? How did you access them?
You're right tho, sometimes they're better than the post itself!
And you happen to be a very good commenter in my opinion!

Stephanie Faris said... [Reply to comment]

Thanks for letting us get to know you a little better.

Maybe we all hold a little of ourselves back in our posts. For me, it's because I know people in my life are reading my posts...but they don't read my comments on other blogs. So I feel free to be more open about my life.

I had to be careful with this on MySpace, with all of the childish people on there. It would always surprise me to see them print-screening one of my comments and posting it on their blogs. I had comments I made twisted around and used against me for years.

God, I'd probably humiliate myself if I were to stroll down the comments memory lane. I've always divulged too much about myself...it's the cross I bear. My poor children. =)

Never thought of it that way! But true, we really do reveal a lot about ourselves. I can't believe you were bitten by a scorpion in your sleep! Ahhh!

Jen said... [Reply to comment]

I reveal way more in my comments than I do in my posts. I know that some family members read my posts so I don't always say what I want there but I figure they probably aren't following me around the blogosphere. I hope they aren't.

Spot said... [Reply to comment]

How funny and interesting! I know I reveal more in comments. But then, I'm pretty much an open book.

Suzicate...I actually thought about being a little more elaborate, but thought it would make this post way to long. It wasn't supposed to scare you!

Lucy...Naw, I love your comments!

Maureen...The hard way, post by post, copy and paste. Thanks for the compliment!

Heather said... [Reply to comment]

Stephanie...I guess I am a No holds barred kinda girl. I love my fam, but they no I will say whatever is on my mind. I think the reason we reveal more is the various range of topics, bring out little tidbits. Myspace was awful, I remember your posts were full of non related comments. I was so glad to get away from it.

Mindy...I had a blast doing it, I think it is a great way to get all the little things that pop into our heads, that we share but I would surely forget the next day!

Angelia...I rolled over on it, in my bed. I woke up real fast, it's like having a fire poker put on your skin.

Kathryn said... [Reply to comment]

Oh, that is too funny! I guess we don't really think about what we're revealing about ourselves in comments. I'm usually too focused on what the poster just said.

Tinkerschnitzel said... [Reply to comment]

Yep, I always say a little too much in my comments. But, I don't mind other people doing it on my blog. It's like we become friends, though we've never seen each other!
