Oh My God, I am the “Days of our Lives” of blogland

05/Feb/2007

Let’s say, hypothetically, that you used to read this website and then stuff happened and you didn’t get to read much. Then you came back and Lo! I was STILL posting about my sex-life (and lack-there-of) and how my child still isn’t sleeping. I’m like a really bad soap opera minus the hot men and women that can’t act but have so much Botox their eyes pop when they smile.

Dayam.

I tuned in, briefly, during Jr. High to Days of Our Lives when I would visit my friend Mercy at her house in the summer. She was a complete DOUL addict and would watch it religiously. Then I grew up, went to college, and had roommates that watched it. The first time I came walked in on them watching DOUL, the exact same characters were in the exact same predicament. They seemingly aged “three days” in the course of 12 years.

I used to wish my life was like that. Now I realize it is. In the worst possible way.

It’s been almost two years since I started this website with a post about my boobs. I then followed it up quickly with the time I peed on a use pregnancy test and completely freaked out. Remember that? Oh, gawd, how did you forget? Then I wrote about how we never have s.e.x and how clueless I am with a tweezer.

And does any of that sound remotely familiar?

Yea. I thought so.

  1. Am I “Old School”?  I read you before you password-protected, then split your sites apart. 
    You know we all like the familiar - that’s why we all keep coming back for more!  I say more Boobs!  more S.E.X.!  more body hair issues!  Keep it coming!

  2. I can’t understand how anyone can get into soaps!  It’s all the same stuff, all the time, just like you say.  It’s crazy.  It’s boring.

    You at least present your life with some humor, so it’s fun to read… isn’t that more like a sitcom?!

  3. Thats exactly why we keep coming back! XOXO

  4. LOL At least you aren’t using the same tired old lines like they do in the soaps.

    And face it s.e.x. sells so your readers will always come back for more ... or should I say less wink

  5. Not that I’m an expert or anything, but isn’t it DOOL and not DOUL?  Eh, pregnancy brain is fun…  wink

  6. Lanna, I was looking at the DOUL and thinking something about this just looks funny but I couldn’t figure it out! And I’m not pregnant! LOL.

    And, I happen to love DOOL, so maybe thats why you are one of my fav blogs?

  7. Or maybe you’re thinking of O’Doul’s non-alcoholic beer…  (sorry, I desperately need an extra week of sleep)

  8. I just wish I had discovered the boobs and the adventures in peeing when it started up two years ago. Thanks for visiting my blog!

  9. OH, y’all. DOOL. I’m smrt. Really.

    I also showed up at my doctors appointment today. The appointment is Wednesday. Pregnancy brain kills.

  10. Like sands fall through the hourglass, so do our boobs as we age.

  11. HAHAHA. See, Stephanie? This is why I heart you mamma-dramma women so much. Dayam. that’s awesome.

  12. Don’t worry about the showing up on the wrong day for your doc’s appointment.  I’m not pregnant and I showed up a day early for my dentist appointment the other week!  at least I don’t think I’m pregnant…

    DOOL and other such badly acted American soaps confuse me.  why people watch them really confuses me even more.  They are shown out here in Finland for some strange reason and I have tried to watch them but there are only so many evil twins and wives coming back from the dead just as he was about to marry again plot lines that a girl can take.  I’ve had my life time quota and I only watched for a week!

  14. Like sands through the hourglass . . . I used to be addicted to that show! Bo and Hope rock.

  15. I too did the Dr a day early (or so THEY said…turned out the receptionist wrote wrong date & day so we were both right!)  thankfully they squeezed me in.

    My life is like a really bad soap opera… I think Passions but with out the witch, or maybe not… could explain a lot!!!

    I am a Guiding Light Addict, my Mom watched it when I was little, so I’ve grown up on it…what do you mean it’s JUST a TV SHOW!!??!!

  16. goodness…i learned so much about you in one post that i feel i should tell you i started my period in third grade, i wore tampons by 6th (my parents flipped!), i had my first kiss in 5th grade. i had to beg to shave my legs in 6th and butchered them every time, this happened until college. my hubby could have sex 15 times a day and often tries and i think that penny in a jar thing would leave us empy in a couple of years…...hope we keep that up.

  17. My mind is still sort of horny but my body is oh so weary, luckliy the husband is even more weary than me, we are old parents of 3 very young boys and too many teenagers, we are so stuffed, if the little ones don’t wake us up at 6am the teenagers stay up til 1am…..if you think being caught out by little kids is bad, wait til your teenager lets you know they heard you, that’ll shoot that libido deader than a dead thing.

  18. Hey….it just wouldn’t be Mrs. Flinger without boobs, sex, and tweezers.

    By Emily on 2007 02 06

  19. First of all I love DOOL.  Yes I admit it.  I am one of those. I TIVO it everyday.

    Second of all, I went for a while without reading your website because I was completely drowning in school and stuff last fall.  When I left you weren’t pregnant.  When I came back you were!  See! There was a change after all!

    By sleeping mommy on 2007 02 06

  20. Yeah, but DOOL is like the pinnacle of soap operas and your site is like the PINNACLE of awesomeness so I think you’re doing alright.  Besides, I like hearing about your boobs and body hair.  Not in a weird awkward way, more like I-need-a-good-laugh-and-I’m-sure-Mrs.-Flinger-will-provide kind of way.
