So Casey, Please Play “Baby’s Got Back,” for Grandma June.

Boy, it’s been far too long since I’ve posted a blentry. Lately I’ve had a bad case of blogger’s block. The ideas just aren’t a-flowin’ like they used to. I guess it’s because I’ve been keeping busy with my improv classes and whatnot.

I looked at my blog today and realized my blogroll has mysteriously disappeared. Wait, now it’s there. And now it’s not. What the… I vaguely remember noticing it was missing a while ago, then quickly forgetting again — So sorry to those of you that used to be on there and aren’t anymore, because nobody is, because there isn’t one. Or is there? I’ll try to figure out what the deal is and fix it as soon as I can, but I’m warning you, I am not great at code. I really should be using a free, “idiot-proof” blogging platform like I used to, but no, I got all over-acheiverly all over the place, and selfishly wanted my own domain name. How I ever managed to install WordPress in the first place I will never know, and how I even installed the theme that made it look pretty is another mystery. I’m real proud of myself for doing that all by myself, but we’ll see how I do with the whole “troubleshooting” thing.

Speaking of technology, the reason there have been no new photos in a while is a sad one indeed. My sister came to visit the other weekend, and we were walking on the Santa Monica pier and asked a stranger to take our picture. The stranger then dropped my camera right onto the pier, and the zoom lens got all bendy, and nothing works anymore. I took it to a camera repair shop who told me it will be $150 to fix it, which is $145 more than I had hoped, and I’m really unsure what to do, because I love that camera, but at the same time there were a couple small things I didn’t like about it, so maybe I should just get a new one. But I’m trying to be good and save money, something that, as a rule, I’m not very good at, because I like things, and doing things. So instead I’m doing nothing, awash in an all-too familiar sea of indecision.

Hey, I’ve got an idea! This will be new and unprecedented for this blog. I’ll take blopic requests! If there is a topic you’d like me to write about, please leave a comment, or email me, and I will write about it! (if I want to). Also, if you’d like a drawing of anything, please request that also, or instead. And if you’d like to dedicate it to someone, Casey Kasem style, include that as well. I’ll give you an example. “Marcy, I would like a blentry about socks. I would also like you to include a drawing of a toaster, and please dedicate the drawing to my neighbor, Martha Gentry.”

And, GO!

    Dear Marcy, will you draw a picture of a grilled cheese sandwich? I’d like you to dedicate it to my stomach, because my stomach has always been here for me and I hope our friendship never ends.

    Yes, WOO HOO! 1 grilled cheese sandwich, coming up. And Rachel, my next post will be a Christmasy one, even though Jeff thinks it’s lame. :)

  5. I would like to request a picture of myself. Preferably doing something heroic. Maybe saving a baby. A burning baby from a burning building. And maybe I am wearing a cape. . .And make the baby ethnic.
    Have this done for me and I shall give you a cookie.

    Jeff’s an A-Hole. And also, I hear that he murders kittens in his spare time. :-D

    I would like a picture entitled “Unicorn-on-the-Cob” and I’d like it dedicated to Former President Gerald Ford or the late Godfather of Soul James Brown, your choice.
