NaBloPoMo Fail

Posted By on November 27, 2011

So after 23 straight days of posting crap, I failed to post on the 24th day of November, which happened to be Thanksgiving. I made it so far and then failed. All because of booze!

See, I went to my mom’s for Thanksgiving. And since I started the new tradition of mimosas on Thanksgiving, I brought the champagne and orange juice. And since my mom needed help, I got there before noon and started drinking then. No one else arrived until close to three. So I drank a lot by myself. (We went through four bottles easily, so everyone enjoyed them!)

Then there was dinner and wine with dinner and more wine and then some beer and then I just passed out on the couch at my mom’s, without posting anything. (I actually tried the WordPress app, but it wouldn’t work. And at that point it wouldn’t have been more than jibberish after all that hooch.)

I just gave up then. There wasn’t any reason to post on Friday or Saturday then, since no one reads on the weekends.

I’m disappointed, but I had a lot of fun on Turkey Day, so I am not too sad. I posted every day for 23 days, and that’s nothing to shake a stick at. And I think I’m back in the habit of posting regularly, so mission accomplished.

I hope you all had a wonderful holiday!

Tomorrow I’ll tell you all about how after just posting THIS, my dentist called me a wuss! GAH!

    I think the fact the NaBloPoMo is officially in November is ridiculous as I wrote four straight Thanksgiving related posts. OVERKILL. Everytime I sat down to write, all I could think was, “tuuuuuurkey.”

    Argh. I’m two days away from winning this one. But, twatever, I say. It’s only a blog challenge, and if it got you writing regularly again, then you won something anyway.

    You made it to the last week of the month, which is a win in my book! I think next year I should start a mimosa tradition. This year I went straight for the wine at noon, but had been thinking about it since 10:30.

    You’ve teased twice now with a followup dentist story. I’ll be coming back to check it out. Hope you are feeling better… or blissfully unaware on pain meds.

    Mimosas are a wonderful thing!! We have to have them more often. And they’re healthy because of the orange juice.

  6. Unless you’re on “Celebrity Rehab”, we all embrace and support your mimosa defense tactic.

    NaBloPoMo is HARD. I did it for many years. I applaud you effort! And your mimosa consumption. 🙂
