I’m an early riser. I always have been, and probably always will be. I come from a long line of early risers, so it’s pretty much in my blood. That’s why I usually blog at the crack of dawn. It’s the only time when the house is completely quiet and I have a moment to myself. Most mornings I sit here, in my jammies, hair uncombed and no makeup on, sipping a cup of coffee and staring mindlessly at the computer until something comes to me to write, which eventually something does. I think the reason I can write so easily in the morning is because I’m comfortable, there is no one to impress…just me, my thoughts and the computer. This got me thinking….I’m really glad I don’t video blog. If I did, I’d have to get dressed, fix my hair and put on a little makeup. I mean, really, who wants to watch a woman in her oversized pajamas with no makeup, rambling at a video camera and drinking coffee. Then there’s the whole what to say thing. When I’m writing, I feel comfortable partly because I don’t have to worry about anyone staring at me while I’m putting forth my randomness. If I sat in front of a webcam I’d be very self conscious and probably just sit there and stare at the camera and either giggle or say “uhhhhh” a lot. Once I did start speaking, I’d second guess my words and probably wind up screaming and throwing something at the camera. One thing I am certain of…I’d feel like a dork.
So rest assured, any videos you see here will be of music or of a comedian…not of me. That’s a promise.
