Hollywood vs The Blog

The Blog: And just what do you think you are doing Missy?

Hollywood: Oh, me? I thought I would take a few days off blogging. You know, get a tan, work out, play with my kids -

The Blog: It's been three weeks since you posted. Did you think I wouldn't notice? What in the world could you have been doing that's more important than me?

Hollywood: I wanted to remember what it felt like not to be sitting in front of my computer for hours every day. It turns out my girls are pretty fun and you should see the tan I've gotten from actually venturing out of my house.

The Blog: VANITY! It's always, "Me, Me Me" with you, isn't it! What about Hollywood Flakes? What about exposing your soul to the unknown masses? What about embarrassing your friends and family with your abnormal sense of humor? You are nothing without me! You think you can just walk away?

Hollywood: Can't I?

The Blog: Never. I own you. Get back to work you miserable ingrate.

Hollywood: But -

The Blog: POST!

Hollywood: Yes, Boss.



Hollywood: 0 Blog: 1

Sarah: I am a l-i-t-t-l-e robot!
Masses: YES, you are!

Welcome back to the reality of a blogger's life! Happy to know that we can (still) count on you. :)

Shiloh said...

Sarah-
Sun is good for you-- don't let the blog win everytime. Find that happy balance. I see nothing wrong with a little vanity now and then ;) You certainly deserve it!!!
(Although my selfish-need-something-fun-to-read-at-work-or-I'll-go-insane side is glad you are back!)

Adrienne said...

Oh good! I missed you.

This isn't because of that email I sent, is it? because then I'll feel all bad.

Michemily said...

Wahooey!

Resistance is futile. Been there. Doesn't work. Welcome back.

Blogs are masters of The Guilt Trip, aren't they?

Suzie Petunia said...

Coincidence that we both took a blogging hiatus at the same time? Maybe its a 3-month post partum thing. Is your hair also falling out in huge clumps? Ah, good times...

Lauri said...

YES!!! You're among the living! You've been missed by us, but I'll bet those two little sweeties of yours loved having you all to themselves. As far as the BLOG goes, all you have to do is listen to the word to know it's one tough cookie.

Good to see you surface!

emma jo said...

I'm glad the blog won...your kids will always be your kids no matter what, but what about the rest of us waiting day in and day out to be entertained by your blogging genius? Let the good times roll.

Melissa said...

Ah, I think everyone needs a bloggity break now and then... but, it was good to see your post today :)

Teah said...

Glad you're back. We missed you! Reading 12 blogs a morning is my treat during my daughter's nap. And while she's awake, I pretend I can't see her destroying everything in her path. So I can read your blog. Yes. It's that funny.

Silly Marie said...

Maybe you could come to a compromise with the blog. Like once or twice a week. Then we can get our Flake fix and you can get some quality kid time...

Bethany said...

i hate to say it, but i suffered from the loss of your posts as well

Sarah said...

I heart you guys! Sorry I went inexplicably underground. I was really just curious to see what life was like without the blog. Sadly, I realized that I'm just another over-stressed, underpaid mom and without being able to write and make fun of it all, it seemed kind of mundane. I really do love to turn the boring stuff into sizzling posts though so the blog is totally necessary to make my life seem more exciting than it is.

I'll be keeping it fresh at Hollywood Flakes from here on out!

Heffalump said...

I was beginning to worry about you. Glad you are back.

compulsive writer said...

Happy the blog won. That means we all win!

kaff said...

We love you Sarah, oh yes we do!!

Kerri said...

At least your blog talks to you. Mine seems to not care even if I post every day. A little "thank you" would be nice sometimes!

Kate said...

I'm glad the blog won. I was missing your writing. :)

Anna said...

Thank you, from a long-time lurker. I count on you to post frequently as others "flake" over the summer.

chanel said...

hallelujer!!!!
ive tried sarah, all though you tried MUCH HARDER, to quit the blog, you'll never win, stop fighting it and just make us happy. You're girls are cute and all, but uh, i never had collic, so I should be rewarded right?
