Yeah, And Another Thing was started to fill a void. In my heart. I’m kidding. It was started because I really had a lot on my mind and found that yelling in my front yard wasn’t the best way to get the word out. So, I started writing like I’d always wanted to, and found a home here with the absolute best audience ever: YOU! Was that personal enough? All the laydee blogger say you should call your readers rock stars and go-getters so you attract the “right” people, but I’m from Mississippi and that kind of dog whistle talk means something else.
I left to go be a grown up, but realized that first, adulthood is overrated and second, I can both be an adult AND write a blog while not wearing pants. And eating Cheetos. I don’t have a basement, sorry. Also I’ve just realized that telling you I blog pantsless could definitely be attracting NOT the “right” people.
But I digress. I do that a lot.
I’m Susan, but my family calls me Bergsie. I live in Memphis, Tennessee, but am from Laurel, Mississippi. I live with my husband, Chuck, and two strays, Col. Jackson Humphrey Hoover Dog (a tiny poodle mix) and Sir Henry Medved Barker Dog (a big-ass lab). I like pizza, cross stitch, bourbon, and long walks down the candy aisle. A family friend once described my writing to a colleague as, “She’s somewhere between a belle and Bella Abzug,” and I thank you, Noel, because that’s exactly how I would have described myself if I used words as well as you.
If you love crazypants Southern women, righteous indignation, or have nothing better to do, you’ll feel right at home here.
