Sad Story

by Holly on August 11, 2009

in silliness

(To the tune of Taylor Swift’s “Love Story”)

We were both blogging on the Internet,
I close my eyes,
And the food is pretty,
I’m reading the screen,
In my desk chair in my office.

See the oatmeal,
See the green monster smoothies,
See you read my blog and comment,
And say hello, little did I know.

That you my new friends, you were on the Internet,
And my mommy said good thing  that you have a computer,
And I was crying because it broke,
Begging this was just a bad joke, and I said,

Public library take me somewhere I can be alone,
I’ll be blogging, all there’s left to do is just post.
You’ll be my Internet and I’ll be your favorite blog,
It’s a sad story all I get is 30 minutes.

So I try to sneak and get more minutes,
I just want to post my pictures of food,
So I close my eyes,
Escape this Internet hell for a little while.

Cause you were my only hurdle, I was a desperate user,
And my daddy said honey, I’ll get you a new computer,
But my blog just can’t wait,
I was begging for just 15 more minutes.

Library desk clerk please hook a girl up,
Give me 30 more minutes or I’ll just blow up,
You’ll be a prince, and I’ll be the princess,
It will be a sad story unless you just say YES!

 

a.k.a. I’m still Internet-less, the public library still pisses me off with their 30-minute time limit and I’m uber-behind in blog reading & commenting.  Love you lots – be patient with a workin’ gal!

Bribe her…definitely make something yummy and BRIBE her! But at least I got my Holly Fix…thank God for library internet access.

Hahaha! I actually sang this to the tune of that Taylor Swift song. Very creative use of the shortest 30mins! :D

Angharad August 11, 2009 at 11:48 pm

I have no idea what this song is so you sound kind of crazy right now. But in a good way, k?

So, bear with me as I have misplaced my phone this evening and hence have missed not only a phone date with my bestie in Canada but a phone date with my best bloggin gal!

The horror!!! Chat tomorrow? Hope everything (apart from the library) is a-ok! xx

Girl, you got some talent. But I’m so sorry about your internetless life. Pull through. Stay strong!

I get on the internet at the library sometimes when the kiddies are otherwise occupied and the time FLIES by, no way could I post in 30 minutes – hope you are getting settled in, can’t wait to get caught up on what’s been going on.

Rosey Rebecca August 12, 2009 at 5:28 am

Haha this is great!! I hate blogging from places other than my laptop!

Abby August 12, 2009 at 6:11 am

I don’t know the tune either, but I think your lyrics meet the requirements for a sad country song (especially if your last Greek yogurt runs away with the librarian and leaves you alone, with nothing but your cat and a stash of emergency truck stop snacks.)

I third the bribing option…tell her you’re a VERY important person and many people are depending on you. Give her cookies.

Sorry but I agree with the librarian. The poor helpless bastards who can’t afford a pc are waiting in line behind you to check on the status of there disability checks, food stamp applications, soup kitchen hours, Facebook pages, etc…. wouldn’t a progressive liberal like yourself have sympathy for that? What would happen to the world if we didn’t enforce rules! My god, Padraig Harrington Harrington lost the Firestone tournament to Tiger Woods because of a silly rule that forced the last twosome to play faster. Did he complain…noooooooo….. cuz he knows the game of golf and it’s rules are bigger than the players who have to abide by them, good or bad.

Just kidding, that librarian should be hog tied to an ant hill with jelly stuffed in her ears.

30 minutes is CLEARLY not enough time to hit up the homies on the blogs! You need to give that library a piece of your mind ;)

Sorry about the internet issues!

Whit August 12, 2009 at 8:21 am

hahahaha, oh how I love you. And no way could I post without Windows Live Writer anyhoo, so I understand.

Lindsay @ bananaandchocolate August 12, 2009 at 8:39 am

Love it! Doesn’t the librarian know you have very important things to do? Sorry your internetless. :(

Emily (A Nutritionist Eats) August 12, 2009 at 9:17 am

Thank you for that lovely song!!! Hope internet is working soon!!

Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) August 12, 2009 at 9:31 am

Haha…love it! I think I even prefer your version of the song. :D

Hope your internet is back up and running again soon…sometimes computers and technology can be so frustrating!

Michelle August 12, 2009 at 9:40 am

Adorable!! Hope you get your internet back soon!

lowandbhold August 12, 2009 at 10:10 am

Hahaha, you poor thing. I’m sorry about your woes.

justine August 12, 2009 at 10:26 am

Sarah (Finding My Balance) August 12, 2009 at 4:39 pm
