Not Jack To Say

Last week I deleted a past post on which I wrote about the drug violence we've got going on down here - there seems to be some retaliation on unauthorized news reporting going on and I'd like to keep my head attached.

The thing is though that ever since I took it down I haven't been able to think of anything else to write about. It's like that "Don't think about an Elephant" thing and I've ended up coming here to my blog and staring at a blank "New Post" page every day this week and eventually just shutting the computer down in frustration.

It pisses me off that I should be afraid to write about certain subjects, but for my heads safety and for Daisy I've got to do what's safe. Americans are used to freedom of speech and I'm bucking like a stubborn mule trying to get over it.

I'm muley on good days damn it.


Ah well, maybe sharing the frustration will get things moving again, like . . . a verbal laxative.

I don't feel the urge to poo yet.

*strain*

Nope, no poo.

yeah.. same here. I stare at a blank screen and nothing comes out. 'Cept at least I don't have to worry about getting my head lopped off if I do write about something.

I'm starting to feel it again though.. I've been snapping pictures and thinkin' "ooh, this'll make a good blog post!"

I guess we all have our quiet moments. Don't rush it, we'll be here when you're ready! :o) (((hugs)))

Yeah, it's true what they said about *bleep* and the current happenings in *bleep* where the *bleep* is taking over the *bleep* so the *bleep* can *bleep* the *bleep*

Jenny - And I miss your writing!! :) But I get it, and likewise I'll wait for you too. :)

You know what I'd love to see from you though? I have a good hunch that you do some SUPER awesome Mom-down-home-cooking and I'd love to see some of your tried and true recipies! After the Gyro post I know you've got skillz :)

Rita - :D Right??? shhhhhhhhh!!!!!

Sorry you are feeling the pinch, sucks. I was looking to buy tickets to Monterry and just happened on a news flash about gunmen hijacking all the big trucks and buses Friday to block the highway. I'm not visiting those friends for a while. And some cousins down in Oaxaca have had an in-law disappear this month. So we all understand your fears. Hang in there.

Usually I just try not to think about it. With living in crazy Mexico, topics just seem to pop up on their own!

Sorry you feel unsafe :( Hope the situation begins to improve.

My rule is that anytime I say "WTF?!?!", it goes straight onto the blog.

I am on the side of your keeping yourself and Chino and beautiful little Daisy safe, even if you have to avoid certain topics. We all have to do what we have to do.

If you're that frustrated, maybe you can use code words? It's what the Mafia has done for years in order to avoid arrest when they might be wiretapped - pretty much all the time. Your regulars will figure it out...

I'm not sure it's a good idea, but that's never stopped you (or me) before.

Karen - I'm sorry to hear about your in law, it's happend to us too and I know how terrible it is, so very sorry :(

Gringa - lol :) I would if I could :)

Larry - Thank You for being an understanding man. I totally *heart* you!


And Upstate and Refried - You two are so cool! And I would TOTALLY do it - Buuuutttt, it's my parents who were freaked out about the whole thing and I can already hear my Dads argument that code words wouldn't do me any good now because I might already be found out and they're keeping tabs on me or some crazyness. I've already worried the shit out of him as it is - and hell, at least somebody thinks smart for me! :D LOL he'll just have to deal with me doing more sex blogs to make up for it! HA!

Kristi said...

Maybe you could 'pass the info along.' to some other anonymous blog. Sort of like the resistance fighters during Nazi occupation.
