The Post of Utter Humiliation

I am feeling void of anything meaningful to say today, yet I find myself with time to blog. This reminds me...
Has anyone ever sat down at the computer and just wanted to type randomly on the keyboard so that you could feel smart or important? Anyone? Anyone? I just had this urge. I used to do this when I was younger as I pretended to be a secretary or something (yes I had big dreams-I aspired to be an administrative assistant). It kind of went like this...
asalkjrghdmnal weniouths;kjgna;ln nios;rithj naslkdfn ;h;ofgu alknf 9r jlakfnkfl';ailejf skdnmf k;oiuwtoliujra;likeh ehgur;awoeiu hja;sdlknksdfj;oiug
This of course is typed very fast and important looking. Please someone out there tell me that I am not the only one who ever did this. If not I will have to find a hole to crawl in to hide my shame and embarrassment.

In other random random news. I recently found and fell in "like" with (wow I haven't used that since like 6th grade) a new artist Joshua Radin after I heard him on an episode of Bones (then I heard him on House). Anyway--me gusta.

Since I have already made myself out to be a complete dork. Allow me to confess my secret love of Hallmark movies. The cheesier the better. Especially if they are set in Oregon Trail Days (you know what I am talking about). When I was little I read every single book in the Little House series and I desperately wanted to be Laura Ingalls, as well as Anne Shirley (Anne of Green Gables-serioulsy people come on now). I still am a sucker for period movies. Especially Hallmark movies. I do not watch them for the acting, or their artistic interpretation of real life. I watch them in hopes for a better time, because everything always turn out perfectly. And the dad is always some super hero dad, who gets all sweaty when he chops wood and can quote every verse in the bible (Michael Landon). And they all sit around the fireplace and talk and tell stories. And there is always some other guy with some dark past that he comes to Jesus about and then sweeps the oldest daughter off her feet and they ride off in their wagon into the sunset. I think that I have some delusional fantasy that if I lived in this time period then life would be so perfect. In reality, I am sure about 20 mins into it, I would be ready to go back to flushing toilets, carpeted floors, microwaves, food that comes from the grocery store, and tv. Not to mention escaping the disease and death that was so prevalent. You may have already surmised this, but I just finished watching a Hallmark movie, it was on the Jesus channel. I have already seen it, but I came in right at the super sappy part so of course I had to finish it. I think they found Michael Landon's clone to play the father and what is more it is a sequel to another movie.
Just in case I have piqued someone's interest or some poor sap has stumbled across this blog stupid on drugs, the movie I was watching was Love's Enduring Promise and the prequel is Love Comes Softly starring Katherine Heigl (from 27 dresses).

****P.s. I was searching online, and as it turns out these movies were produced by Michael Landon Jr (hilarious!), and there are six more movies in the series! I think I am in Love! (that was supposed to be punny).
p.p.s. I sincerely apologize for this post, I do not know what I was thinking.

You crack me up. What a funny post!

And yes, I've typed nonsense very quickly, just to see what it felt like. And I, too, wanted to be a secretary. Or a cashier. Secretly, I still would be happy doing either...

And I like Hallmark movies, too. There. The truth is out. I think we're kindred spirits, to quote Anne Shirley...

I'm with Annie - I, too, still type just for the fun of it and am in love with all Hallmark-type pioneer movies, books, etc. You can add Amish-inspired fiction to my list as well. LOVE it! Anyway, you're not crazy, or maybe we all are. :)

Bosom Buddies for sure.
Can I call you Cordelia?

OK So when I get the entire "love" collection I will invite you all over and we will have a Hallmark movie marathon. I just have to figure out what to do with Everette... (I don't have enough puke buckets to withstand that kind of revulsion)

Not only did I type nonsense, to pretend I was a very important business person but I would also pretend to write pages and pages of cursive (before I learned how). I used to take my mom’s yellow legal notepad and fill the entire thing with cursive or what I thought was cursive. At seven, it made me feel all grown up. If you’re a dork, then I’m right there with you.
