Revamping This Hobo Tramp

It's time.

Time for change.

Time for new starts. New bidness.

Time to let somethings go and introduce something newer, maybe even better.

It's been too long since I've had something to say that resembles what I have been in the past. For far too long, this blog has been like that weird fruit that floats around in jello. Or worse? The carrots. Carrots in jello is something that I'm pretty sure was based on a 1950's era drunken dare. You know, all, yeah, casseroles are awesome. So awesome in fact that a gelatin based casserole would be out of sight.

I'm all about casseroles, but gelatin based anything should be pretty much sent to outer space to die a fast, oxygenless death.

Do I make sense?

No, clearly not.

And that's the point.

What I'm saying in this mysterious and convoluted manner I've adopted lately is that I'm changing, Betsey Booms is changing and BoomTube is changing.

My voice in it's current form is meaningless and being heard far less than I'd like to consider the importance of myself to be worth. Wait...

Hell, I don't even know what that just meant or if it was even a complete thought.

I'm having less complete thoughts these days.

Last year about this time, I had decided that it was time that I stopped caring what other's thought about me, that I would simply be my authentic self and fuck! That just has to be good enough.

And you know what? It is good enough but I'm even better. I'm worth treating myself even better and shedding even more layers of the funk that gets slimed all over us by the world the very second the umbilical cord is cut.

I'm hoping that you'll stay tuned and enjoy it all.

But if you don't? I enjoyed your readership while it lasted.

Heya Betsey. I love hearing what you have to say. I love "your voice". Whatever channel you're going to be broadcasting from, I'll be listening.

At first I thought that last sentence said, "I enjoyed your LEADERSHIP while it lasted." That made me think you'd gone completely insane. But yeah, I'll continue being a READER. Of course. Are you kiddin'?

Someone once said about me, "You have to meet my friend Gypsy: she's the antichrist."

I don't know how that relates here, but I thought I'd share. Also, will be staying tuned.

I will have to continue reading. It's like one of those "can't look away" things: Weirdly fascinating.

But in a good way.

I'm sticking around, lady. Want to know what I'd not stick around for? Cottage cheese in jello. Talk about your drunken dares.

I am always listening. Hope to hear you more.

I have never once thought of you as the carrots in the jello. Not once.
