Welcome, Dear Readers. Do you ever wake up in “one of those moods” where the whole world is just one big ball of bleh?
Well, this blog is officially announcing a new holiday.
National Bleh Day!
And in honor of National Bleh Day, let’s do something bleh by taking stupid pictures of the stuff on our desks. Here, I’ll get us started:
Bleh doesn’t really get any more Bleh than this. The centerpiece of this picture is the spoon I ate my cereal with. I don’t know what happened to the bowl. I think I might have accidentally eaten it. How does it fee to eat a bowl? Frankly, I don’t even remember it.
Here’s the Old-Fogy cereal that was in the bowl I ate. It’s got fiber and 80 calories so I ate four (4) bowls which probably means I ate the same amount of calories and sugar as two maple bars. Why didn’t I just eat two Maple Bars instead? Because today is National Bleh Day which I am beginning to hate already.
Here’s a notebook I’ve had in my desk drawer for probably 6 years. Just judging from this note I made myself, you can kind of see why I’m always missing appointments and why I’m not a millionaire. I start doodling half-way through every note rendering it totally useless. Frankly, that’s one of the reasons I’ve started National Bleh Day. So I can finally get some use out of all this pointless stuff I have. ( I would have turned this vertically so you could read it better, but what with it being National Bleh Day, why bother?)
How much more Bleh can this picture get? The answer is none more Bleh. I probably went to too much work for this picture as it is. Anyway, that pen is the pen I sometimes use when I need to write something with a pen. The nail polish I have on right now (see below). That’s my coffee in the background (it’s cold). And that little green block is something I bought one time. Why?
Okay, here’s what the nail polish looks like on my fingernails. I know they kind of look like my toes, but they’re not. My toes are shorter and fatter. I kind of like clear nail polish because when it chips off, you don’t really notice. But then you have to ask yourself, if you can’t tell if it’s chipped, it probably doesn’t show enough to even bother with. I don’t’ know whether to put a question mark after the above sentence because I can’t tell if it’s a question or not. See this is the kind of stuff discussed on National Bleh Day. Aren’t you glad I started National Bleh Day? No? Me neither. (Wait . . . did I just agree or disagree with myself?)
Oh hey! Here’s a piece of candy I found in my desk. It looks old. It looks like it would taste pretty Bleh. Let’s find out shall we?
Yup I was right. It does taste pretty Bleh. Probably because I think it’s been in my desk drawer since 2009. Of course, that won’t stop me from eating the whole stale piece. Why? Because that’s what people do on National Bleh Day.
And there you have it, Dear Reader, our very first celebration of National Bleh Day. I hope your day will be as bland, and mediocre and uneventful as is humanly possible on, this, our very first National Bleh Day!
Until next time . . . I love you

Yes, like today. Now that Bleh Day is now a new holiday, I am good with that and I don’t have to feel guilty. Thank you! Let’s hear it for Bleh Day!
Yes three cheers for National Bleh day. On second thought lets just make it one . . .
Today I feel bleh myself. In fact I actually feel blah but the I feel to bleh-y to pronounce the A.
So you are right. This day can truly get “none more bleh”.
Speaking of pronouncing “a’s” I was watching Columbo last nite and he pronounces his “a’s” just like you do. You are developing a southern California accent when it comes to pronouncing the letter a. No offense but somebody had to point that out. And who’s going to do that but your Mom.
You know what would unbleh you – an old illustrated cookbook or other manual!
To the thrift store!
Brain!! I love that idea. There’s nothing that can cure the Bleh’s like an old illustrated cookbook! 😀
As much as I’d like to get excited about this grand new holiday…
More “meh”, but I’ll celebrate almost anything…
So meh bleh
Ahh! National Meh Bleh Day. Now THERE’S a cause I can get behind.
I know what you mean. I thought about decorating the house for it but then I looked around and thought “hey my house can’t get anymore bleh than this.”
Thanks Andy. Bleh!! right back atcha!
Have a great Bleh day! 😛
Thank you! 😀 I think I’m having a great Bleh week actually!
Those are rare lol 🙂
Yes thank god! 😀
I’m with you bleh..
Bleh says it all for me too!
Sorry it’s that way for you too. 😦
I know! I’m having kind of a weird summer. It doesn’t really seem like summer at all. I’m still waiting for my fun summer feeling to kick in and here it’s mid July!
That just sucks. It was a long winter too. Here’s hoping fun summer kicks in soon!
Just a note: I’m launching a new site in the next day or so. http://www.gottagetmycamera.com *wink*
Oh that’s exciting. I’ll go over and check it out!
😉 The logo that’s there now may have to sadly go but you’ll get the idea of the site anyway.
I got it to come up just fine on my laptop which uses Safari! I love the pictures — especially that horse with his blaze shaped just like the clouds. So beautiful!
Thank you Linda!! I recruited help and they have found the problem and they’re working on it!! Yay! I’m glad you got to see the site though and happy to have you on board. I hope to launch this week but there’s one other glitch that needs to be worked out. It depends on how long that takes! lol
Only one glitch! That’s great! I can’t wait for the grand opening Bucky!! 😀
Yes just one now! I’m getting kind of excited myself.
Just went over there, but it’s not coming up correctly on my computer. I’m getting the pictures but they’re very small and there’s not other sign of a blog! Just the tiny pictures . . . (I love the pictures though)
Are you in Chrome? Things for some unbenounced reason to me don’t seem to work right in Chrome.
I hate chrome! It always tries to sneakily download itself to my computer!

I think Reese’s probably tste like theyr six years old on the day they were made.
Also, ahhh. Bleh.
I think you’re right, Donald. Every Reese’s we eat has probably been sitting on one shelf or another for six years by the time it makes it into our stomachs. So that means I just ate a 12-year-old candy bar. On the whole it wasn’t bad.
I love Bleh day, we had meat loaf for dinner, sat and watched TV Land and all the old shows for the 60’s and now times for bed. Great Day
I feel like that a lot.
I hear you. I’d say it was an awful feeling but that’s too strong awful is too strong of an emotion to describe it.
I spent National Bleh day hanging my new curtains, you guessed it – they looked bleh
That’s disappointing, but I think at least they aren’t overpowering the room. (Unless it’s with bleh). (Did that just make an sense? I can’t tell anymore).
It made my room look half the size, still at least my neighbours can’t see my naked now
It’s a win win! 😀
How long has that spoon been sitting there? Longer than a day?
That REALLY IS old foggy cereal! Don’t ask me how I know that.
What is the PDC Summit? Is that where you learned to launch the missiles?
This post is like a Seinfeld episode. Fascinating, but about nothing.
Once time, I impulsively leaned over in bed and took a pic of my nightstand. Here it is!:
It is an old fogy cereal isn’t it? I thought the 80 meant there were only 80 calories in it, but now that I think about it, I think it’s actually for 80-year-olds. It’s wasn’t very good. I think you have to have false teeth to really appreciate the flavors.
I have no idea what a PDC Summit is. It actually says “summit” doesn’t it. Now that’s a pen that too big for it’s britches.
This post is about nothing. (Have you watched Jerry Sienfeld’s podcast Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee yet?)
Your nightstand makes me want to go to the library and I just might actually do that today! I looked all those books up on Amazon and read the reviews and now I want to read all of them. I haven’t been enjoying my reading much lately as I’ve been buying a lot of Kindle books. and reading them just isn’t the same. It doesn’t feel like the words are being formed in the same part of my brain as a real book. It’s like the part of my brain that irons is reading the book which makes it much less satisfying.
Good God, woman! Get thee to a bookstore and treat yourself to some real BOOKS. Your eyes will thank you.
Whenever I go to the bookstore I aways come away empty-handed. I don’t seem to be able to find anything I actually want to read. Although now that I have your bedside table list, I’ve got a good start. How do you find your books?
I read classics. They don’t call them classics for nothing. For contemporary literature, I read the New York Times book review every Sunday and jot down the titles that sound interesting to me.
I usually read classics too. In fact, I usually just end up reading books I’ve read before — they just get better and better with each reading.
Oops forgot to answer how long has that spoon been sitting there. It probably sat there through the entire PDC Summit.
I wish bleh could just be that one day….bleh pops into my day any time it pleases.
I agree. We should save it all up for one day a year. And then the rest of the time we could just enjoy life and we could all just sleep through National Bleh Day.
I think National Bleh Day is a great idea.. I celebrated along with you minus the photos…. Diane
Ha! Now that’s the ticket! I love your new picture by the way!!!
Thanks Linda… p.s. (can we only have one bleh day?) Diane
Ha.! Yes! In fact it would probably be best if we only celebrated it on Leap Year or something.
I wish I’d read this earlier today, Linda. I laid the floor boards in my bedroom and now I’m feeling very bleh. I think it was international chocolate day on Monday (I made the most of it) 😉
Oh but you accomplished so much! Your skills amaze me Dianne! 😀 (I can’t lay floorboards but I do I excel at eating chocolate.)
Gee, I wish I’d gotten here sooner. Happy belated Bleh Day, or is that Blah Day. It’s 90+ degrees here today, so I’m felling pretty Bleh myself. Think I’ll enjoy a cold adult beverage. 🙂
It’s really hot here too. I think we need National Puddle Day!
