Welcome to The Musings of Lil Tirade Blog. Lil Tirade is my gang name. No, I'm not actually in a gang. I'm a middle class chick rounding the bend to 40 and am not nor have I ever been in a gang. I was in a sorority in college. That's a little bit like being in a gang. Also, I'm on PTA, in a Mom's Group and I have a tattoo. I guess it's all in how you define gang. 

I couldn't get a very sharp picture of my bad ass panda tattoo. You can't tell here, but it's purplish. It started out a nice purple, but has faded a bit in the last 19 years. There is a story behind the purple panda tattoo. Maybe I will tell you sometime. I have said many times I should get the color redone. Maybe for the sake of the blog. Maybe.

My friend, Sharpie Fine Girl, bestowed the Lil Tirade name upon me. Even though I'm a good person, I'm smart, I'm good enough and gosh darn it people like me, I am prone to rants about seemingly inconsequential things and thus the name fits. Sharpie Fine Girl also christened the rest of our posse with gang names that I now can't remember. I thought they must be in an old email somewhere, but when I searched "gang names" in my email account- nada! Maybe my posse remembers what their names are. Maybe not. The hilarious gang name emails where awhile back. I remember mine because I've been using it as a screen name elsewhere. Maybe Sharpie Fine Girl (not her gang name btw) will give out new gang names to those desiring of them who didn't like can't remember their original ones. 

One of those friends whose gang name I can't remember, let's call her Green Thumb Lassie or GTL- kinda like Gym, Tan, Laundry, except not at all- apparently told me some time ago that I should blog. I don't remember that GTL told me so, but she insists that she did so it must have gotten stuck in my subconscious and been rattling around trying to rise to the top. 

Also, because I have decided to make it so, I am morphing into a Social Media Expert and have graciously offered my talents to a local business that I have close ties to. Among the social media things I am doing for said business is blogging. It's fun. It's a good outlet. I like it. I will continue to do it, but that blog can only take so much of my random nonbusiness related ramblings. I'm finding myself thinking in blog form about very random stuff. So I decided why the fuck, shit, hell,  blazes not!?! Profanity is also not appropriate on the aforementioned business blog probably and I feel it has it's place- for random emphasis and whatnot. I would like to take this opportunity to point out that you were warned way up at the top in the blog description "NOT FOR THE EASILY OFFENDED!" That is the only disclaimer I'm doing.

Peace & Love :-)

    word on the street is you got that tatoo 'cuz you use to bite the heads off of baby pandas back in your gansta days. now that's bad ass, lil' tirade.

  2. I fully endorse this. You have too many anecdotes to confine you to facebook. BTW I think the faded ink gives you street cred.

  3. I'm totally supposed to remember why you got the tattoo but I don't. Damn senile dementia. I never thought of Tri Delt as a gang, but I like it. Makes it more respectable somehow. It's all relative when you're singing lame songs and holding three hour meetings about what color the tshirts for Presents should be. Oh snap, was that a tirade?

  4. PTA totally counts as a game. Just sayin'.


What say you?
