Ok, look, I can’t figure out how to delete these posts, and I don’t know if you’re reading them or not, or who you are—who are you, actually? Who reads these things? Who writes these things? Marcella has a blog, but she’s a businesswoman and a musician—she needs them. So of course she thinks it’s a good idea. Aren’t we all like that? Assuming that what’s good for us is good for other people?

Marcella thinks this is good for me.

And because I am a stupid sheep—and crazy—what do I do? I listen to her. Watch her set things up. Outsource everything—even the name of the blog, my username, and my password—to her. Can you believe it?

It’s because I’m a sheep.

Or crazy.

And I hate the name of this blog.

Marcella was like, “You can name it anything you like! That’s the great thing about a blog! You’re the mistress of your own domain, and you can say anything you like, Susan! So what are we going to call it?”

And then she shot down every single one of my suggestions.

Which, ok, were mostly pretty lame. StupidSusansStupidLifedotcom, for example. Or, susanslifeisover… or… well, you get the picture.

But Susan’s Writing Cure Blog is just as lame.


And this whole idea is stupid.

And here I am, still typing.

I’m typing because I’m lonely and even though it can’t possibly be that hard to delete these stupid posts, I’d rather… type.

Maybe because… it’s better to hope somebody—Marcella, anybody!—is reading this than to admit how lonely I am?


Did I just admit how lonely I am?

Is that the way this is supposed to work?

I’m going to text Marcella and ask her.

m88: At this time it appears like Power Engine is the preferred blogging platform out there right now. (from what I’ve read) Is that what you are using on your blog?

susan-oh-susan: Um, no. Who is this?

BeautifulThingsEveryday: It’s a spammer, Susan. Delete his comment, and turn on your spam filter.

susan-oh-susan: Who is this?

BeautifulThingsEveryday: This is Marcella. You adorable idiot.

susan-oh-susan: Marcella, in my world, spam is a disgusting meat that comes in a can. What is a spam filter?
