Unvented Frustrations

I am frustrated (this is already obvious from the blog title, but I needed to write that).

I have had blog-block for the past few days. Not because I didn't have things I wanted to blog about, but because I felt that it would be inappropriate to write about them. I'm reminded of a blog posted recently by a blogger buddy of mine about her dilemma of writing blogs that were too personal and might offend people. I commented on her blog that people shouldn't read her thoughts unless they were willing to risk reading something they didn't like. Coincidentally, now I am in the same blogging boat.

Everything I have wanted to write about would either seriously offend certain people or hurt feelings. So I am now faced with the same problem: do I make my blog private/unknown so that I can freely vent the feelings that have been stressing me out, or do I just keep it inside and stick to the funny and random?

Things I love

I think if you were to ask any of my friends to describe me, one of the phrases they would all use to describe me is "easily amused." I can't help it. I laugh at the most ridiculous things. I enjoy the cheesy. The difference between me and others I know, however, is that I am not embarrassed to admit that I love something considered cheesy or childish. I cherish the child in me who still likes to eat Captain Crunch and watch cartoons on Saturday mornings. So, in celebration of my easily amused self, I am compiling a list of some of the things that I love, cheese or not!

1. Spongebob Squarepants
2. Chocolate Milk
3. Movies by the Olsen twins
4. Knock-knock jokes
5. Disney/Pixar movies
6. ABC Family movies
7. Slinky
8. Cookies and milk
9. Magic tricks
10. Dressing up for Halloween
11. Themed parties
12. Pool handstands
13. Snowballs
14. Musicals
15. Jingles
16. Decorating for every possible holiday
17. Christmas specials
18. Etch-a-sketch
19. All of the 'Bring It On' movies (except for the second one)
20. N'Sync
21. Saved By The Bell reruns

That's just a few off of the top of my head. Sadly, I could probably go on for days listing the cheese that I enjoy.

Anyhoo, my hope is that this post will make everyone who reads it feel that they don't have to be ashamed of their corniness. We all get a little cheesy sometimes.
