The Glass Is Half Bull

I have not been a good blogger lately. It's hard to be a good blogger and a good teacher at the same time. And since teaching actually pays the bills (barely)....well you can see where I am going with this. But I have had blogging on my mind. I've even made a list of things I want to blog about. I'm going to put my list up here to keep me motivated - and so I can throw out the blue 3x5 index card on my desk. You know how I hate clutter.
  1. My New Career. AKA How I Worked My Way Down To The Bottom Of The Food Chain
  2. I Married a German Dissident in Geneva
  3. Amsterdam, Tattoo Molly, and The Homicidal Hooker
  4. The Boy With The Cork
  5. Three Blind Dates
  6. Memories of Maloney's
  7. Mr. Right or Mr. Right Now?
  8. My Secret Crush
  9. Places I Have Been Kissed
  10. Pretty Boys All in a Row
Suggestions are welcome.

Not sure if this is what you're looking for Brooke, but I would love to hear you blog about topics 3,5, and 8. It's tough to keep blogging on the forefront with a career and all. Anyways, have a good weekend.

What, no topic about Jon or Viggo?

Or have we said enough already?!


Neil said...

"I Married the Third Commenter on this Post"

Anonymous said...

I think you've got to blog about topics 2,3,7 &9 especially #7.

Kris said...

Please put homicidal hooker at the top of the list! Pleeeeease!

MoDigli said...

Neil ~ don't you have a little something to take care of before that can happen?!!!
You know how Brooke hates clutter! :))

MoDigli said...

My secret crush!!! Come on, spill it!!

The blind dates sounds good, too. Oh! And places I have been kissed! Does that mean places on your body? Or places in the world? You could do a two-fer on that one to make it a bit more interesting. :))

I should come up with a list of things to blog about. I feel like I've been a bad blogger, too.

BamaGirl said...

I can't wait to hear about your crush!!

Lushy said...

The Boy with the Cork. AHAHAHAHA! I've got to hear that story.

yournamehere said...

I want drunken exploits, damn it.

Übermilf said...

Drunken exploits with homicidal hookers!

Brookelina said...

I've been sitting here trying to write about my crush, and it sounds like a fucking 16 year old diary entry. I may have to go third person with it. Or maybe I should just write about the homicidal hooker first. How the hell I will edit that one down to 4 or 5 paragraphs I do not know!

Kris said...

Your comment on Neil's blog was fabu + hilar. Whatever that is, it was.

Melliferous Pants said...

What the world needs now is The Homicidal Hooker story.

Brookelina said...

Well thank you Kris! And MP - I think you are right. The crush will have to wait until I stop acting like a schoolgirl when I think of him.

ducklet said...

how about, 'an ode to the funny little vein that popped out on Neil's forehead when I blogrolled his arch-nemesis?'


Brookelina said...

Uh oh! You are his arch nemisisis?...neminenis?....(fuck...I can never say that word right.) You are his arch-enemy?? Now we are in trouble.

Does this mean that there will be superhero costumes with tights and capes - and a big battle in the middle of the city? Oh please let there be tights!

Anonymous said...

I am still waiting for #3, and I will until I am issued my AARP membership, I won't give up on you... #9 I am guessing the first place was the left knee?

ducklet said...

tights, yes.
capes, sure.
fight? oh no, my friend.

this is going to end in a dance-off.

/dips shoulder, snaps fingers

Brookelina said...

A dance off! That's....fine.
It'll be like West Side Story. Only not.

Scroll down and click the link for Fractured Fairy Tale. You should get a kick out of it.

By the way, I had no idea how popular you were. You have like a million people linking to you. Ok, not a million. A couple hundred. But still!

Neil said...

Brooke, what is wrong with you? Are you now blogrolling every guy that winks at you? As a teacher, don't you believe in standards? Some recent additions to your blogroll just do not belong there -- no matter how "popular" they are with others. Mussolini was popular, too -- if you get my point.

In teacher-talk, I liken your blog to a school with very stingient standards for admittance. In your real life, I hope you aren't in one of those "newfangled" schools that just gives everyone a passing grade so to avoid legitimate grading.

Believe me, Brooke, some of the other guys are just interested in one thing -- your writing. I, on the other hand, am interested in more -- a lot more. Remember that when you decide which blog to read first.

Brookelina said...

Yes, Neil. I hear you. I understand where you're coming from, and I'm feeling your concern.

So what color tights will you be wearing for the dance-off?

ducklet said...

Officer Neilochka, you're really a square;
This boy don't need a judge, he needs an analyst's care!
It's just his neurosis that oughta be curbed.
He's psychologic'ly disturbed!

/snaps fingers, slides to the side

Damien said...

Well hey i love the writing here as well, I just need my weekly brookster fix, i've been jonesing for it.

Bill said...

The Homicidal Hooker has an alliterative quality and lends itself to Homicidal Hooker II, Homicidal Hooker III and so on. So from an investor perspective, I like that one. There's a movie in it. Sequels. Video game. The whole she-bang.

It's a gold mine! Put me down for 10% if you take it to film. But I want a producer credit.

(Maybe Neil can help you with the script? And Sophia with dialects?)

Kallun said...

German dissident, please.

Gordy said...

Obviously in priority order, I want to here about places you have been kissed, assuming they are not actual towns or countries..and hen about three blind dates in all the gory detail!

Neil said...

Tights? I already have my West Side Story outfit on.

I feel petty,
Oh, so petty,
I feel petty and envy and slight,
And I pity
Brooke if she doesn't comment on my blog tonight.
(before that other guy)

Oh, and I agree with Gordy: Places you've been kissed sounds like a winner!

Brookelina said...

I've started writing about the hooker. I'm warning you all now, it's long. It may have to be a two-parter.

With the hooker coming in part two, of course.

I am loving this dance-off!!! Such clever boys. Proving once again that all the good ones are taken.

The Dummy said...

My vote goes for Secret Crush! Even if you do sound like a 16 year old! :)

gone said...

Goodness gracious you make everything sound so interesting it's crazy. How do you do it?
