About Lily

Hello blog world. My name is Lillian, and I’m a part-time writer lazy-ass blogger. I’m from Puerto Rico, butΒ I live in the super expensive wonderful state of New Jersey. (Because I was born here. And no, we are nothing like the cast of The Jersey Shore.) I started this blog mainly because I used to have always loved writing. Not because I have nothing better to do. Pssh.

There’s a little bit of everything on this blog. Random crap, funny crap, life crap, poetry crap…just crap. Crap you should totally read, as I fight against my constant writer’s block. Don’t let that stop you! Sometimes, things pop into my head and I go, “Oooh! I MUST remember that one for my blog!” And then I forget, and it makes me sad, and then I get angry, so then I cut myself…just kidding. I probably shouldn’t joke about that. So yeah…thanks for stopping by! I’m sorry.

PS: If you see something you like, feel free to share using the Reblog button or FB, Twitter, etc. Just please don’t steal my work.

  1. Greetings from another Jersey girl! Something I do to avoid forgetting funny sayings I hear or funny thoughts I might have, is to carry a note pad and pen in my purse (or as we say in New Jersey, pocketbook!). In fact, this is reminding me to pull out my notepad and have a look. It might contain this week’s post!

    1. Hi fellow Jersey girl! Thanks so much for stopping by. I agree about being prepared. If anything, I could always take notes on my phone as well. The problem is a lot of these things pop up while I’m in bed and too lazy to get up to write, or in the shower. Just bad timing! πŸ˜‰

    1. Hm…well I think picking a name is hard. The first thing that popped into my head was “don’t quote me” because I had a feeling I might blog about controversial things every now and then. So I made it “don’t quote lily” since the first one was taken. πŸ˜‰ Thanks for stopping by.

  2. I nominated you for the lovely blog awards, I’ve only nominated 3 people because I don’t follow that many blogs but hey, it’s better than nothing! Thanks for nominating me as well πŸ˜€

  3. Thanks for reading my “Post Card” prompt. I looked up your blog and enjoyed reading it, so I will begin to follow the blog. I invite you to follow my blog as well! Best Wishes, beebeesworld

    1. Hey, no problem! Found you through Carl’s blog, I couldn’t help noticing a mention of 50 shades in one of the comments and it caught my eye! I love reading satires/spoofs of 50 shades. πŸ˜‰

            1. Oh, I don’t think it’s your page. It just doesn’t want to let me log in using my wordpress account. It won’t load. Which is weird because it worked the first time. I could probably leave a comment NOT logged in, like a non-member, I didn’t try. Just thought it was weird it wouldn’t log me in. πŸ˜‰

  4. Wanted to see your blog because of the cute waiving puppy. LMAO when I read the part about cutting yourself when you’re angry, which is really not that funny, except I have been about that frustrated in my life, but knew no one needs to take anything in life that seriously!

  5. I WANT TO MARRY YOU!!!! I just saw your review on Amazon (thanks for putting it on both editions) and about wept from your awesomeness!!! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!! You simply cannot know how much it means to me that you’d not only get the book, but that you’d write such a lovely review. I am sooooooooooooo happy you enjoyed it and I just love love love love love you!!!! XOXOXOXOXOXOXO SWAK!

    1. Aw, you are SO welcome! It truly is awesome. I’m not very good at reviews, but I tried! I’m glad it made you happy. I tried adding a link to your blog, which didn’t work the first time…maybe Amazon doesn’t like links?! Anyway, when I saw the email notification of this comment, I didn’t see who it was from, I just saw “I WANT TO MARRY YOU!!!!” And I was like, OMG, a stalker? Lol. So your comment made my day too. πŸ˜€ Much love!

      1. Oh yeah, you may officially consider me your stalker now!! πŸ™‚ Honest to goodness, you made me grin ear to ear–I LOVED your review, it was awesome. I means so much to me. Especially with the WGN interview coming up–the more reviews that are up there, the better sales will be, so I double extra appreciate it!! πŸ™‚ XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

  6. I like your blog. The way you talk about things has kept my interest. :)) I’ve been browsing for a good blog for some time now, something similar to mine, which yours does fill, albeit, rather personalized, your blog is quite the good read. Just enough to get me through my gloomy day blues. πŸ™‚

  7. Funny rocks! I can’t wait to follow your blog and get a good laugh. I like to be funny, too. Well, at the very least, amusing. Check out my blog – we might have more in common than you think! πŸ˜€

  8. Hello fellow puerto rican chica! Came across your blog while visiting She’s a Maineiac. Love the blog and the name. Looking forward to following you. Check out my second to last post…all about the yummy puerto rican food I miss!! Saludos! πŸ™‚

    1. Woo, another fellow puerto rican! πŸ™‚ Thanks for checking out my blog. My recent posts haven’t been so great but…I’ll work on that. I’ll have to check out your blog too! Saludos, cuidate. πŸ˜‰

  9. Hi Lily, it’s me again. Would you like to participate in something we are doing for Susie for this coming Friday? I am trying to contact as many of her followers as I can. We are going to post on our blogs a post titled, “Susie Strong”. The content of the blog will just say, We are thinking about you. I don’t know her very well but she is such a sweet person and I’d love to do something collectively as a united blogging family, while she is going through such a tough time. I hope you get this message. Are you in?

    1. Hi Maria. I’m in! Although I have to admit I’m quite forgetful, and would appreciate a follow up comment to remind me. I’ve been so bad at getting posts up lately! I think it’s a very sweet idea to help a fellow blogger out! What’s her blog? I can’t think of who Susie is… 😳

        1. Oh no worries… I know there are some people who’s names I don’t remember. But no, it doesn’t look like I’m one of her followers. Never heard of that blog… I’m sorry! 😦

  10. Remember when you would post stuff to your blog? Yeah. Those were some good times. I have to give you crap because my blog is running slow like yours. Writer’s block loves company. You know…

  11. Lils I have been informed by my blog stats that you were my top commenter in 2013. That means that you are the best person in the WORLD, and I’d like to say a very, very massive thank you from me and Stickman. Happy New Year Lils xxxx

  12. Hey Lily! There have been no comments here in over half a decade, and even a global pandemic hasn’t brought you back to blogging, but, I just came back to it myself and you were always one of my favorites to read so I just wanted to say Hi… Also, the little one must be 4 going on 5 by now, I hope she (IIRC) is doing well!!

    1. Hi Jason! Pleasant surprise! I haven’t been here in forever. Appreciate your kind words. Yes she is almost 5, crazy. So I guess it’s been about that long lol. Hope you’re doing well with all this craziness. Thank you so much for stopping by! I sure miss the simpler days, writing and feeling part of a community.

      1. I was calculating how many years I should wait to reply, but I settled on nine days.
        Man, I miss those days too. But I talk about wanting to write and blogging a lot, more recently, so I’ve been encouraged to do it, but whether I can find 3.5 loyal readers again, only time will tell…

        1. I’m sure you can! If you come back maybe I’ll be motivated to try too. Things are so hectic at the moment I quite literally have no time for myself. But maybe quieter days will come. I sure miss the simplicity of reading and writing even for a small audience. Sigh. 😊😊😊

          1. I live in a home with a daycare, 6 children under 3 for 43 hours a week, so I have SOME idea.
            Just start small. Once a week, ~100 words, or a poem when you feel inspired.
            As usual, I should take my own advice. My last post was on the 2nd and it’s not because I haven’t been writing (off and on) but the one I’m writing is approaching 3000 words. I’m done with the writing but now I’ve got to add links and tags and perhaps images.
            Anyway, just know that whenever you do, you can count on at least one dedicated reader/commenter here!

            1. Happy to see you back and I might just take your advice! I literally wrote 5 words 2 days ago…then got distracted again by work. Ugh. BUT at least I took an important step in logging in and WANTING TO. So we shall see… πŸ™‚

              1. I’m about 200x better at doing things I want to do, than doing things I don’t want to do, so I think you’ve already got a great advantage for yourself there!
