I am ɹǝƃƃolquǝʞoʇ and this is my blog.
I'm a middle-aged fat lady, married (31years in July) and have three dogs.
- Mini, a Jack Russell/Italian Greyhound
- Lily, a Great Pyrenees and
- Sterling, an Irish Wolfhound and Greyhound.
We live in a small Victorian cottage in historic Lexington, Kentucky, USA. I have one adult son who also lives in Lexington.
I tend to write about stuff I do (or don't do), conversations with my husband or son, how or what my dogs are up to, short stories, and sometimes I'll post one of my really good dreams with illustrations!
My life leans towards the more mundane (which is exactly how I like it) because while I do love being with friends and family, afterwards I'm completely spent and it can me take days to recover. I'm told this makes me an introvert.
I started trying to blog back in 2000. A Yahoo! chatmate had asked me if I had a blog and I had no idea what he was talking about so he sent me a link to his blog. I liked what I saw and gave blogging a try (he is no longer blogging).
I originally blogged using DiaryLand, but I think I only posted six times in the year I was there. I went to LiveJournal for a while and posted even less. Eventually I ended up at Blurty and here I finally began to blog with some regularity.
I kept my Blurty blog just over three years before I decided to get a domain name and self host. I chose the name ɹǝƃƃolquǝʞoʇ because I was the last of my chatmates to start a blog and I felt this made me a "token" blogger.
Why yes, I did think that was kinda phunny.
I use advertisements to pay hosting, domain, and flickr fees, so please, don't judge me.
