National Bleh Day


The Bored Family

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:

desk 1

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 Fogey 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 Maple Bars instead?  Because today is National Bleh day.  And what better way to Bleh Out!

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 to doodling half-way through every note rendering every note I've ever made 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 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 uninspiring can this picture get?  The answer is none more inspiring

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 their not.  My toes are shorter and fatter.  I kind of like clear nail polish because when it chips off, you don't really notice.  Who do I even bother with the clear?  Well, it's the kind of thing one contemplates on National Bleh Day.

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 an old piece of candy I found in my desk.  It looks old.  It looks like it would taste pretty Bleh.

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 Bleh.  Probably because I think it's been in my desk drawer since 2012.  Of course, that doesn'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

  1. 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.

    Hahaha.
    I think Reese’s probably tste like theyr six years old on the day they were made.

    Also, ahhh. Bleh.

  3. 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

    • 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.

    • 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.

  4. 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) ;)

  5. 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. :)

Please leave a comment. I need help finishing my sentences.
