Shithouse rat

I'm a bipolar writer in the Naked City. I'm not playing with a full deck. I don't have all my dots on the dice. My cheese is sliding off my cracker. I don't have both oars in the water. I'm a bubble off plum. In other words, I'm crazier than a shithouse rat. These are my stories. Comments--short or long, nasty or nice--always welcome!

My blogging doppelganger

For me, blogging under a "pen-name" means that I now have a separate blog-self that's better-looking, more fun-loving, and more popular than "I" am.

Hmm, interesting. Anything like this is an escape though, where your views can be spouted without worrying about superficials getting in the way. Good one.

I can relate with that all too well. I never would have thought that you didn't go out much thought, but I certainly can understand the blogging addiction thing...ya know.
Can't write more. my meds have got me all jacked up.

I know more people online than in the real world. Pathetic.

Catchy! Speaking of blog identities, I know a blogger who had two aliases--the second was phuck yu.

That's flattering to think that you'd see me as such a bon vivant/woman about town (lol). Pathetic that in the greatest city in the world (IMHO) I just don't get out much anymore. But it's all good.

Hope your meds work out ok. I know how that shit goes all too well. Of course, as they say, they need time to work, blah blah blah, but hopefully you have a doc who will adjust things if the current mix isn't working out. Some side effects you can deal with, some you can't. I've bookmarked you and will go back and read your archives asap.

Though I just said in the last comment to phuckyoutoo how "sad" it was that I'm so "isolated," I truly believe that (as I said elsewhere) blog friendships are just as cool--and often cooler--than the flesh and blood kind. I probably know most of you guys better than some people I've known all my life, and I definitely like you guys better than some people I've And I've revealed more here than I've revealed to anyone, anywhere, to boot--including BG. And to me, that's a good thing.

LOL! Yeah, I think it's a cool name. Considering you don't usually get to name yourself in the "real" world, I think it suits me pretty well.

the fotour:

Like it sez in the profile, just your average everyday part time psychotic New Yorker.

As for you, who's behind those incredible NYC pictures? They are so beautiful--just the kind of sights I would love to see for myself. You rule!
