Ah…where to begin? I come from people. They raised me. I learned how to type in a class in high school. I bought a laptop four years ago. I put my skills from high school to use. I watch a lot of TV, too much TV for someone who has the responsibility of raising a small human. Luckily my husband watches less. I like to read people’s status updates on Facebook even though they normally depress me. We can do better than “I’m making lasagna!” Let’s make that our collective goal as a society to improve our status updates. How ’bout “I post because I need to make a ripple. I need someone to acknowledge that my existence matters”? No, that’s terrible. Think of something else, please.

What you will find here are posts. The posts will mainly be about TV. That is sad. There will also be posts about my personal life. That is even sadder. I tag my posts as “humor” so that should make you feel better about laughing at my patheticness. I know that word doesn’t really exist, but Sarah Palin isn’t the only one who can coin new words.


  1. Pathetic maybe, but wonderful and funny and oh-so-humanlyfreshingly-sane. I enjoyed your ramblings; they set me up for the next thing I have to do today…join the world of writers and get to work. Yet, I am tempted to click on another title and read just one more… No, I mustn’t – gotta bring in the proverbial bacon – gotta hit those keys, but “I’ll be back” as the muscled iron-pumping platform-thumping ex-gov nanny-humping ‘blacksmith’ said.

    1. I would feel better if you nominated me for Non Versatile Blogger Award. And in order for me to accept this award, I must spend the evening on the couch, watching TV and eating a family-size bag of Lays potato chips.

  2. I don’t have cable because I’m a recovering couch potato. Would you consider some future ramblings and rumblings on TV topics from my former TV-obsessed life (1977-1989)? You can check out my blog’s 1980s “very special episodes” if you’d like a springboard topic.

  3. LOVE your blog, although I feel largely inadequate, not having a TV, and therefore unable to contribute much to any TV discussion.

    We don’t have a Sarah Palin down under either. That fact is not causing me undue stress though.
    Made up words are some of my favourites.

  4. Hello! I hope you have time to join a game of tag. I am so EXCITED to read your answers to the questions I’ve prepared. Your posts never fail to make me laugh. I don’t watch a lot of TV but I laugh even if I haven’t the slightest idea who the person you’re making fun of is.

    Anyway, here is the link: http://janielives.wordpress.com/2012/03/03/lets-play-tag/

    Have a nice day!


  5. Dearest Speaker7, We meet again. In response to your question – WordPress must have lights – how else would they see? Maybe they won’t shine as bright because of energy saving light bulbs? Thank you for your fabulous support regarding my WordPress departure. I shall be back to read my favourite blogs – yours included. Have I told you that your blog is fabulous? It’s fabulous by the way! I guess you hear that a lot. Continue the greatness!

    Should you wish to visit my humble new abode, here is my forwarding address: http://www.jessseeker.com/

    1. Thank you for the address. I definitely will visit and hope the move is trauma-free.

      Also thank you for the kind words. May I say I find your blog fabulous? Because I do.

  6. Hey, S7. I think I f*cked up. My “follow comments” box was defaulting to following everyone’s comments, then I got a million comments and I tried to fix it. Can you please tell me if you got my last blog (Half a Dome?) . Just let me know when you get a chance. I think I axed Angie too.
    Sheesh. The follow/following thing confuses me.

  7. I recently came across your postings about Mr. & Mrs. Ding Dong, the delusional duo, those fame whores extraordinaire, the Salahis. Pllease be sure to visit our official unofficial facebook page, TAREQ SALAHI FOR VIRGINIA GOVERNOR. And you may enjoy this video:

  8. ooooh, i really want to read your most recent blogs, but I lied a bit and have not yet purchased the next book. I plan to read your blogs along with the reading of the next book, once it is purchased. For now, your blogs are mounting up in my reader and I have to keep reminding myself not to click!

      1. That would be lovely..but no. Sweatpants accepted here. Just follow the link for instructions.

  9. You’ll probably hate me for doing this, but I nominated you for a {Booker} Award. Feel free to accept or ignore as you prefer.

    You didn’t hate me before I did this to you, did you?

  10. Hey. Yeah, it’s me in your About page. You won the trash bag contest. You must have magical powers or something. I thought for sure no one could ever come close to guessing. Email me as I seem to have lost your email address after my husband erased everything on our friggin computer again last week. I have some goodies that need to be shipped to you.

      1. I just found your email. yesssss I have to tell you I am thrilled it was you who won. When I read your guess I yelled out HOLY SHIT! HOLY SHIT! SHE GOT IT! SHE GOT IT! WHAT THE HELL!

  11. Hey Speaker. I just linked my last piece (about a turd) to yours. As for your being political…keep it up. You do it well and with inteligence and humor. People who can’t differentiate between opinions, facts, satire, etc…don’t deserve to read a good blog.

  12. ‘Scuse me, ‘patheticness’ IS a word, I’ve been using it for years. I’ve even heard someone described as ‘the apogee of patheticness’ – oh wait a minute that might have been ‘the nadir of patheticness’. Whatever, it was a long time ago and the person in question may well have managed to pull themselves out of the slough of patheticness by now and be an up-standing member of the community.
    And I am not scared of potatoes but my waistline is.

    Best Wishes,

  15. Are you adopting? I’m 25 and not toilet trained but fuck, I know how to make a great… well, a great lot of nothing actually. But I’m hairy and I fart a lot. That’s gotta be good for something?

  16. I love your blog, and its comments on TV. Antenna TV has been good for my household, and I have preached many sermons that relate to such characters as “Andy, Opie, Barnie, and Aunt Bea.” Oh, how I miss them. And, of course, everybody loved Otis Campbell. I am now following your blog. Please consider following mine. Many blessings to you.

  18. I just wanted to say I really miss your posts! I love a writer who can speak freely about butt plugs and who isn’t afraid of the occasional f-bomb. Come back to blog world, Speaker7. It’s really boring here without you! 🙂
