I was not whining!

When I Tweet or post a new status on Facebook, I really do try to be funny. Witty. Profound. Worthy of commenting on. At least that is what I try.

I was talking to someone on the phone early in the week, and he says, "I keep up with your whining on Facebook."

For reasons I won't go into at the present time, I am very sensitive to make sure that I don't beat everyone down with what I post. At this point, very self conscious (for other reasons I won't go into), I say, "I didn't think I was whining on Facebook."

The next couple of days, I was afraid to post anything. I went back and looked at my most recent status messages. The trend I did notice was my commentary on the stupidity of people on reality shows. May be that does constitute whining.

When I relayed the conversation to someone who knew this person, I was promptly told to just ignore him since he was just picking on me.

Later in the week, I was so appreciative to two people who me they loved my wittiness on Facebook. Unsolicited compliments at that!

This may seem like a really lame blog post, but you have to realize my need for approval. I have a problem with wanting people to like me. I want people to think I'm witty, not whining. Oh, shoot. I think that right there qualified as whiny.

When it comes to blogging, I feel if I don't have anything witty to say, I'm better off not saying anything at all. I've been too busy lately to be profound or witty when it comes to blogging. Rather than a dry spell, I've hit a desert.

I'm not sure when I have found time, but I've finished three books in the past couple of weeks that I want to post reviews for. I'll try to get them up in the next few days. Two come highly recommended. That reminds me of something else I need to do. I better go do that while I'm thinking about it, then I have a lot of other stuff I need to tend to. Better get to it!

Here's a tease of the three books I'll be posting on:

















WOW! You can even buy one of them for a penny. Now when I bought my first Denise Hildreth book for 49 cents on the super clearance shelf at Mardel's I thought that was good. Sure, you have to pay $3.99 for shipping, but it's worth that.
