I blame boredom. I’ve never done well without a million things on my plate. I thrive in chaos. I always have. It’s why my family calls me in an emergency. It’s also why I used to write papers at 4am when they were due at 8am. I’d always get an A on those papers. Like I said, I thrive in chaos.
I’ve never been someone who does well with a quiet mind. Mostly because I don’t know how to quiet my mind. I was a hyperactive kid and in a lot of ways I’m still a hyperactive adult. I just never learned how to shut off. Even when I was on my honeymoon 7ish years ago I couldn’t get my mind to shut off. I’d be lying on a beach in Jamaica with a drink in my hand, listening to the ocean, and wondering if an update hit TSTO.
Yes, I am that crazy.
So at this point, I blame boredom. I mean we are on day 360 of 15 days to slow the spread. Perhaps I’ve simply run out of things to keep my mind otherwise occupied. So I think it was boredom that caused me to take a trip down memory lane. Maybe boredom, maybe some personal issues I’ve been dealing with for the last couple of years, maybe a push from the big guy upstairs, maybe an all of the above situation. All I know is I saw a religious talk from someone I follow on Instagram and it sent me spiraling down a path of memories.
I know this isn’t a site about religion. We write about The Simpsons. I know that. But as any of you who have been following this site for a while know…my faith and relationship with God are extremely important to me. So when I saw that talk, coupled with the madness that is my mind I went for a stroll through history.
There’s a point to all this, I promise, so stick with me.
By now I’m sure most of you have noticed our ever changing Banners on the site. We are very lucky and grateful to have met an artist that really gets us and our sense of humor. He’s not even in the same country nor has he ever met us in person.
In return, we’ve been given some pretty cool artistic versions of Wookiee, Alissa, and myself … Bunny to place on our site and other items (like T-shirts… Who wants a T-Shirt?). Many of you have been requesting to see them all in one place, so I wanted to share them with you all. In an Addicts Art Gallery.
Well, it’s that time of year again where the commercials playing on TV guilt every person in the world to spend LOTS and LOTS of money on the one day they actually remember to do something nice for their Love.
That’s how it goes, right? Lol. 😉
Psst don’t forget to log into TSTO today for your free gift!
It is a New Year and everyone is making all these resolutions on what to do to change themselves and make themselves better. Well here at the Addicts, we don’t mind change. We embrace it. So… we decided to make a lil change to… US!!
We’re approaching the 1 year anniversary of TSTO Addicts (woo-hoo!!) and over the last year of blogging we’ve provided A LOT of information for the game itself, but not too much about us. We’re always asking you guys about your thoughts on the game, and more about your lives (heck we asked you just about everything under the sun in the Blogiversary Poll Post)…and now is YOUR chance to return the favor!
Now is your chance to peak even MORE inside of our lives. What do YOU want to know about us? Want to know about our tapping habits? Our lives outside of the blog (we do have them!)? Our family lives? Our hobbies? Our favorite color? Anything you can think of ask away!
Feel free to post your questions here in the comments or email them to us (TSTOAddictsblog@gmail.com). We will then go through and answer as many questions as we can in one post this week. (so try to get your questions in by Thursday, 8/14, night)
So ask away and learn even MORE about your Addicts Team!
In a classic example of “better late than never”, Bunny and I realized we are horrible caged animals and forgot to wish our fearless leader Alissa dearest the fondest of Happy Birthdays.
I guess Bunny and I were so busy running amok in the Addicts house in joyous freedom to remember why our doors were unlocked to begin with. We love you Alissa and hope today was a grrrrrrrrrrreat one with your hubby and fams.
Have no fear dear readers, I’m sure Alissa will be working her tail off again in the very near future. For now she gets to enjoy being another year older. As the youngin of this group, she’s only got so many years left before she joins us older kids. But don’t take it from me Lis, Nelson wanted to sound off in too…
Seriously though, Bunny and I couldn’t do any of this without you. Much love and all that good mushy stuff. Hope you got something goos. If any of y’all want to chime in with wishes for Alissa the Amazing, please do.
Hehehehe…I fed them all LOTS n LOTS of turkey…now they are all knocked out in deep Turkey Tryptophan comas. Shhhh.
WOOHOO! The Bunny is FREE!!! Now, what devious lil things can I do? Hmmm. I will change this…add a lil more to that…move this over here…and VOILA! They’ll never even notice. Hehehehe.
While I am here, I might as well recap the week….more for me mind you. I have been away in Hawaii…ummm…I mean sick **cough cough**, so missed a bunch of posts too. So, what happened? OH, I am supposed to tell YOU?! Ummm…hmmm. Wow, there wasn’t much going on this week, was there? Probably because awesome lil me wasn’t writing. 😛 Just Kidding. Let’s dive in.
