In which we pretend it's still Friday

Hey, guys!  It's totally not 1am on Saturday when I told myself I'd do BEDA... APRIL FOOLS!!!  Yeah, okay I'll stop.

So I'm sitting here in my rolly chair in my dorm room lit only by Christmas lights.  The XX is playing on my iHome.  And I'm sweating like a pig, in shorts and a bra.  Yeah, it hit 32 degrees (C) the past two days in LA.  But I'm nasty because I just got back from the gym.  A midnight elliptical escapade with a friend.  After a strange day.  Where I cancelled something probably important and then forgot about a quiz due at five pm which prompted Polly to tag along with me to a last minute trip to Venice Beach.  Yeah, odd day.  And I don't even know what I'm doing here.  Other than sort of typing away because it means that much more time not showering.  But does that mean I enjoy being sticky and stinky?  Well, not particularly.  But you folks have to understand that I am painfully lazy--often at the expense of my health, personal hygiene.  Okay, where am I going with this?  Because I hate those blogs which are one self-deprecating entry after another.

This is a strange start to BEDA.  And I'm trying to think of a way to segway into a question to leave you guys with.  Even though I personally have underlying distaste for people who are all "here's a pointless, okay maybe slightly relevant, question for you to answer so I can get comments."  But I suppose I would like some comments.  I'm just going to go the generic route--who are you?  How did you find this entry?  Do you come here often?  Also have to ever attempted a Blog Every Day in _______?


  1. Austin, I'm subbed through Google Reader, so I don't come here often, but technically Google checks things out for me every few seconds. I've never done any "X Every Day in X" though I think after I graduate I'm going to try NaNoWriMo.

  2. hellooo! i'm cleo. i apparently subscribe to you on blogspot, haha. i think i may have attempted BEDA last year, but i don't remember. now would be a good month for me to try again since i'm studying abroad but i'm already a day late! ah.

  3. Oh, audience participation! Ok then, I'll indulge you (indulge myself?): I'm Mike, a law student (I thought I had given up on defining my life by my course of study, but apparently not) from New Zealand.

    How did I find this entry? I found it excellent, even if it isn't exactly your usual fare. Alternatively, I found this entry through a chain of various marionhoney pages (I suppose what you would term "The Empire"). I'd go into more detail than that, but I'm sure you know you own Internet life better than I do. As to how I found you in the first place, I don't really know. It's funny, there's a few things in my life that I feel an affinity for, yet I can't place how they got there. The study of Italy during the '30s and '40s is a good example of this, but that's another story (did I really just put you in the same category as a fascist dictatorship?). Consequently, I come here once a week or so, just to see what's going on.

    I've never done BED_ officially - I don't think I could come up with anything truly worthwhile to say every day. Blogging about absolute rubbish, however, is something I'm very good at, hence why Tumblr functions as my blog. Good luck for this month, and remember that even if you do decide to write absolute rubbish, we will be just as appreciative (probably).

    (Also, this comment has far too many parentheses. I'm not proud of it, but I'm not going back to change it either.)

  4. Being lazy is okay in my books, I've gone to school pretty much everyday this semester looking like I just rolled out of bed.

    I've actually been a fan of Nanalew forever and found your YouTube, and ultimately your blog, through her. This is my first attempt at BEDA so we'll see how that goes.

  5. Hey I found your blog, because I watched your The Condition video, I think thats what it was called I really liked it so I subscribed and followed your blog. I used to blog on blogger, but I stopped, now I only use this account to read others blog, but I am attempting BEDA, but on my tumblr blog
    which is here
    Good luck on BEDA to the both of us, because I know I need it!

  6. Marion! You have no idea how excited I am that you're doing BEDA! I started watching your videos when John showed your video where you went out and found the signed copy of Girl at Sea. I absolutely loved your witty blog posts when you had your Wordpress blog, so I had to come on over here when you changed blogs. I come here rather often to read your posts because I'm a total creeper---ehm, I meant that I just love your funny posts. My name is Darlene and I'm a high school student, and ofcourse I;m a total nerd. I have never attempted a BED__ challenge, mainly because it's just too much work since I'm a student and play sports, but I bid you good luck Marion! (:
