Inspiration

My Aunt E came to visit us the other day.  She lives about 4 hours away but it had been just over three years since the last time I had seen her.  It was good to catch up but the reason I bring her up is she gave me the inspiration for the title of this blog (side note! I also need to give my Mother credit for joking that I should name a blog “the little shit”).

You see, ever since I was little I was surrounded by the saying “you little shit!”  My family is notorious for this phrase, especially while losing at a card game.  It wasn’t until this last week, however, that I found out the reason I heard it more than perhaps others in my family is that I was “THE little shit.”  I was the little shit above all little shits.  I must admit, this is a badge I wear proudly.

I’ve wanted a real blog for a long time but I just haven’t had the inspiration.  I’ve had a couple different blogs (e.g. tumblr, twitter, xanga, blogger, etc.) in the past but I generally lose motivation for a variety of reasons.  The most common reason being my lack of candid communication.  I tend to shy away from writing when I assume it will be criticized by people I know.  Anonymity is hard to find online these days.  When I don’t feel like I can be candid, I lose motivation to write anything.

So that brings us here.  While attempting to keep my anonymity, I will write about whatever I am inspired to write at the moment I am inspired to write it.  What I will write about I am not entirely certain, but I already have a food topic I’m thinking about (I made pizza eggs this morning!).
