Open Forum


I have been scraping the lint encrusted crevices of my brain to come up with something interesting for me to write about. As seems to happen so very often, I am stumped.

Again, I am sitting here at work, trying desperately to keep my eyes open. Why is it topics that seem wildly entertaining and witty at 4:22AM appear to be just mindless drivel in the light of day?? I have started several topics over the last couple of nights only to have them look so ridiculous when I get home that I trash them completely. So, my loyal readers, (all two of you....one of which I am sleeping with *wink*), I implore you to give me fodder to write on.

I am opening up the phone lines and I am taking calls. Whatever is on your mind, just come on out and ask me. Have a question for me about my job, my life, my kids?? Go ahead and ask. Have a topic that you would like me to give my editorial commentary on?? Post it in the comments. I will do my best to write on any subject, answer any question, give my opinion or advice on any pressing concern you may have. However, I do reserve the right to censor any freaks, weirdos, perverts (yes, NewMan, that means you too), and other undesirables out of my comments. I will endeavour to do my utmost to be as honest, sincere and entertaining as possible.

I have had to reinstate the commenting rules again, however. You have to have a blogger account and the word verification thingy has been turned back on, because of some spammers hate comments that were plugged into my comment box.

OH, and I almost forgot....if you do post me a question, you have to be prepared to answer one back for me, on YOUR blog......and if you don't have a blog......in my comments. That isn't too much to ask in return, is it?

Let the games begin........

SHEESH, Iris... It's way too early in the morning for this! I'm going to have to think on it for awhile and get back to you! ;o)

Hi, just wanted to let you know that I posted your meme at Nurse Ratched's Place. Sorry it took me so long to post it.

New reader to your blog (followed a link on Nurse Ratched's blog).

Here's a question: what do you love about small rural hospital nursing? What bugs the heck out of you about rural hospital nursing?

Ok, it was 2 questions....so sue me!

Ack, I wish I could - I'm having enough trouble coming up with topics for my blog (as you can no doubt tell by the scatterbrained entries of late). Look forward to reading your response to the questions posed above though. Brilliant idea!

Okay, how about this? If you could move to any place in the world other than where you're living now, where would you go? Let's leave out the obvious answer of NewMan's place and say that wherever you went, NewMan and your kids (if you want them) will be there with you. You could move permanently, temporarily, or just get a summer home or some such thing. But tell me where you would go and for how long and why. Ready? Go!

p.s. I'm using my pretend blogger account (created for just this purpose -- commenting on blogger blogs that don't allow anon. comments), but whatever question you ask me will be answered on my real, non-pretend blog. Just, you know, to avoid any confusion.

Start at the beginning. Tell us everything.

Where did you grow up, what were your parents like, how did they shape who you would become, who was your first love - the whole story on that - and then the whole story on every love since him - up to now. ...

Go!

Hmm. I've been kind of dying on my blog too - merely because I've been busting my ass at work for the last few days and so have no energy left to devote to the blog.
What about something like: Name the five best days of your life?
Eh? Eh? Not bad, right?

I teach public speaking... I make the students give impromptu speeches... here's the list: most embarassing moment, proudest moment, best childhood memory, worst childhood memory, if you could change one decision you have made, what would it be and why... ok, hope that helps.

writing about how you have nothing to write about is still writing about something. ;)

Cammy said...

Okay, I've got one or two.

Tell us how you feel about blogging - why you started (and what keeps you going), what you love, what you hate, etc.
