Whine Factor

Ok, I have good news and bad news.

The good news is that Le Shallow Gal and I started a new blog, called Secret Spineless Whine. We were inspired by Secret Tweet and PostSecret, websites that allow you to share your secrets, anonymously, with the world. They do a great service, but we're not about service, so we are providing a website where you can whine. Anonymously, if you choose, but if you are a huge attention whore like me, go ahead and sign your name and or link to your blogs, drug dealer, whatever.

So please check out our debut, subscribe to us, follow us on Twitter and generally rearrange your life around this exciting development.

Oh yeah. There's no bad news. I just thought that this post needed some suspense so that you'd get through the whole thing. Well, there's the economy, the mid-East conflict and the two wars. Bad enough for you?

Consider my life rearranged.

Let the whining begin.

Thanks to you, I now have a reason to live, to put one foot in front of the other, to get up in the morning, to go to the New Hampshire liquor store and buy more Bombay Sapphire and risk the dirty look of the clerk who is the distant cousin of a friend of mine.

Not necessarily in this order.

Hmm, I have to check out the new blog. It will be interesting to see what people are whining about. And I'll start wahhhh you are adding another blog to my reading list! AS if I have time to read more blogs! Wahhhh!

I will report to the whining site immediately, and probably camp there indefinitely.

Oh, wait a second! Are we worrying about giving Husbandrinka any ammunition on the whining site, or are we speaking freely there without regard to negative repercussion?

I'm with Renee on this one...not sure I can hack reading another blog. And so much bitching....Hmmmm.

Hey, Renee and Tooj--I don't know, I have a feeling you're going to get a hang of this whining thing pretty fast!


Wendy--why the dirty look? Because you only get a six pack of the Bombay Sapphire?

Mama bird--thanks for rearranging your life!

Blognut--you ask a good and important question. I will present it to the whining committee and get back to you!

OMG - Whining. If it was a sport, I would be a gold medal winner. How many pages can I use?

I went and saw no wine there to get my ass drunk!

Oh, you meant that kinda wine...the one with the "H"...the one I like more than the one you drink. Fab!

Great idea! Thanks for visiting my blog - I can't wait to add my whines, and possibly even those of my children because why should I have to be the only one listening to them?

Sounds like a great idea, on my way to check it out. Maybe I'll have a place to complain about my job, which I stay away from on my own blog.

Another blog?!?! Crap, now I'll get sucked into that one, too, the way I've fallen in love with this one.

I'm going to go over there and whine about having to cancel my mani/pedi so I could devote my day to your new site.

I love whine...(hiccup!)
oh, you didn't mean that kind...

Nothing like a fine whine.

I'm a little confused about how the anonymous thing works, though. Unless we get an email address just for that, aren't we relying on your keeping things anonymous? Not that I could EVER doubt you, I'm just sayin'.

Can't help but notice that there's an ad for a test in the bottom left-hand corner of this site -- Is Your Husband Gay? Although, if there's enough question in your mind to warrant a test, maybe you should report to Secret Spineless Whines instead.

Oh great... like I don't neglect my kids enough reading one of your blogs... now I will forget they exist completely!

I love to whine! I'll be there with bells on!!!

You're wrong! The bad news is that I didn't scam you out of house and home to start that project, instead I just showed you the easy way :)

Oh, wait, that's good news for you, huh?


PS love the idea. I've already posted!

OMG - your blog is hilarious! It's a good thing I was laid off because I'm sure I would get fired for reading it and laughing OUT LOUD all day long at my office. Thanks for stopping by at mine - and I'm sure I'll become a regulary wine-o (oops - I mean whiner!)

Maura--when you email to , it posts directly to the blog and we don't see where the email came from. I suppose it's possible to go through Statcounter and figure out who was on the site at the same time that a certain post popped up, but I think you know me well enough by now to see that I am way too lazy (and possibly too stupid) for something like that.

This is the reverse of what I do. I tell people that I have bad news and then good news. Break the bad news to them, then tell them that there wasn't any good news at all, but didn't it make hearing the bad news a little easier, knowing that good news was coming?

I'm not very popular.

This is a brilliant idea. I'll finally have a place where I can talk about my vibrator in peace!
