Drier Lint Saves the World!

By , June 20, 2007 9:51 am

I am having a cynical day today. I am uninspired as to a post. Why bother anyhow? Here I am pondering the great question about whether to finally write my “Magenta Drier Lint” post or publish a photo of a squirrel enjoying a meal at my squirrel-proof bird feeder.

There are wars and massacres and horrible things happening everywhere. Shouldn’t I write about that? Am I going to change the world through magenta drier lint?

I guess humans can only absorb so much negativity before the urge to escape it kicks in. Perhaps that is where my blog fits into the grand scheme of the universe.

No one really cares what color my drier lint is today (and if you do, you have even less of a life than me!), but in the minute or two that it takes to read about my drier lint we can temporarily forget the woes of the world. Drier lint connects us all. It is a commonality. A banality. A comfort that drier lint still exists for all of us amidst violence and chaos.

As my husband (who rarely reads my blog) said the other day upon reading my recent Sea Monkey post: “No wonder you are taking the universe by storm!” Well, as you can imagine, he was being a tad sarcastic.

I am not exactly taking the universe, the planet, the blogosphere, my town, or anyplace else (except maybe my laundry room) by storm. However, I guess I would like to think that it is somehow possible to change the world, one magenta fluff ball at a time.

PS. Not to disappoint my vast public (all three of you), but the great “Magenta Drier Lint” post will have to wait until a more inspired day. So stay tuned!

Question: Why do you read / write blogs? Please answer in the comments.

    Where else can you follow the saga of magenta drier lint, or the foibles of other peoples cats. It certainly beats yet another car bomb or another crooked politician. Plus, it is nice to know that other cats are as eccentric as yours!

    Thanks for visiting my blog and for the herb garden compliment. I hope that my lavender plant doesn’t take over.

    Why do I read/write a blog? That’s a good one. At first it was a way for me to vent about our ongoing adoption and my long wait to become a mom. Then I met other potential adoptive mothers and successful adoptive mothers. It has been a FANTASTIC resource. I don’t feel alone in my quest. I’ve met some great ladies that way too! We even started a book club. Or people like you leave a comment, I visit their blog and again I find a fun enjoyable blog that I visit.

    It’s not Magenta, it’s Sky Blue Pink. ; )
    I read blogs and write my own for fun. And to not feel so alone in this SAHM, going slowly crazy, where are we going and how did we get in this handbasket world. Oh, and because I never had a penpal as a kid. :)
