Living With A Blogger

I heard Bear Grylls say on Man vs Wild that in the Arctic your body can burn up to 6,000 calories per day. 

I said Well hell, let's move to the Arctic, I can have all the Baked Cheetos I want! 

My husband responded with, Um, you have to be outside in the Arctic, not just sitting inside blogging. It's not strictly a geographical phenomenon. (I'd also like to note that I just spelled phenomenon correctly the first time)

As soon as I broke the death glare I pulled up Blogger and start typing furiously. Soon he asks what I'm doing. I respond with laughter which he knows by now means I'm writing about you on the blog. 

Then he remarked that living with me is like living with a freak tape recorder that twists and exaggerates his words. 

Um, honey, everything is potential blog fodder and it's been that way for over 2 years now. When will you be used to it? Men can be so hard to train...

That's why my husband doesn't know about my secret blogging life. Just Kidding!

Scott has become a pro at rolling his eyes whenever I speak of blogging!

You have it! The Wild Writer's Mind! I'm so frigging PROUD of you! And keep off that damn, shitty Twitter, will ya? You don't post as much sometimes and then I hear you refer to Twitter and I realize you've been squandering hours there instead of here, with mother. Shun Twitter. Stay here and blog without ceasing.

I heart Bear Grylls. But the Arctic? *shudder* I don't think I could do that...

Baked cheetos? Are you kidding? With that kind of calorie burn, you can go with the whole hog variety!

I actually used the phrase "everything is potential blog fodder" with The Hubs about a week ago. So it made me laugh hysterically out loud when I read your post. He is a subscriber to my blog, so he reads everything I write, so he knows when I talk about him... except when I post a comment on someone else's blog... TeeHee!!! :-)

My family knows that everything is potential blog material. The kids are always asking "Are you going to put that on your blog?" It won't be too long before it's "Mom, don't you dare put that on your blog!"

Blog away!

My husband doesn't know what a "blog" is, and if he did I don't think he would read it. As for my children? Unless it's on facebook, I don't think they would be interested.

p.s. I live in the north, not the arctic, but still it gets darn cold here, and I would debate that 6,000 calorie burn off. Is this before or after you build your igloo, fish for food by chipping through 2 feet of ice, or chew seal hides for clothing? Cause I am thinking they don't get a lot of "carbs" living up there.
