100 Words: Mother Farkle

I'm making my New Year's Resolution list early this year. It's full of the stuff I never got around to in 2011. Lose weight. Be nicer. Write more. Read more. Curse less.
It's that last one I always seem to dismiss first and foremost. The first day back to work usually has me screaming the EFF word not once or twice, but multiple times.
Last year I tried to stick to it by having somebody hold me accountable. I was to pay Bryan five dollars for every profane word I uttered. One hour and fifteen dollars later, I cancelled the deal.

  1. Only fifteen dollars? Nice hundred Nessa :)

  3. Ok... Been drinking tonight and just posted the wrong comment on your blog. Reading one thing, thinking another. So onto the swearing, and yes I wish I could give up, or maybe just do it less. Good luck with that :)

  4. This post made me chuckle. I don't think I get through a day without at least a little low grade swearing.

  5. But, but, for fuck's sake, fucking woman, fuck is the most versatile fucking word in the fucking English language.

  6. Joe- it would have been more if he'd stuck closer to me.

    Sharon- feel free to use them. Truth be told, I probably won't.

    Dicky- haha! No worries. It only takes one margarita for me...

    Sensible- Under my breath wouldn't be so bad, but I tend to get very loud...

    Robbie- it's right up there with sh- er...Shinola...

  7. i swear too much too.
    a bit off topic, but i had a dream the other night that you and i were skateboarding in san francisco and being chased by a knife wielding charlie sheen, who also happened to be your ex-husband.

  8. id- weeeeird...the knife-wielding bit is pretty accurate, but Charlie Sheen's got nothin' on my EX when it comes to crazy.

  9. Not swearing is over-rated. Some situations actually CALL for swearing.

  10. Swearing feels good some times. It's a cheap and simple cure to many frustrations. Right now it's mostly @#%& Christmas >:)

  11. Merry Christmas! Maybe you could really just say "eff word" instead. People will think that you are losing it and be nicer to you.

  12. Ha! See, this is why I never bother to make resolutions.

    Your 100s are always entertaining, Nessa. Hope you had a beautiful Christmas. And have a fucking good new year! ;)
