I am flattered and amused that I am so often asked: “Have you written any new blogs lately?” …followed by: “I enjoy your blogs…” (…or something like that) I so despise the word….B-L-O-G. Why can’t we call it what it really is…some self-glorifying, verbally masturbatory need we all have to exorcise our inner narcissist!
I guess “blog” is shorter and has a better roll off the tongue.
Anyhow…I hesitate in self-soubt because I think: “who the heck wants to read my mad rantings?” Apparently YOU do, or you wouldn’t be here…wasting your time…reading from the inner workings of my mind. So- you are, in fact, facilitating the inflation of my sense of importance in this world…right now. If you start your own blog- I will surely return the favor. I mean- I guess it is just where we are in society…the society in which those of us technologically advanced…technologically “privileged”…with less pressing problems…come to participate. Maybe it is the *new* way in which we all get to know each other…as opposed to that tired, but time tested way (you know- talking to each other). No. We are all too busy, and too booked, and pre-engaged, and indisposed…we are all a bunch of twerps. Lonely twerps sitting at our computers…delaying the actual work we have to do…entertaining ourselves by thinking we can understand anybody else. Maybe it’s just independent advertising. Hey- that’s better than a car ad…
Well- sign me up! I like to write…I like to rant and rave…occasionally I talk about important things, and that may have some positive effect somewhere/somehow. I hope.
And, most importantly…some people just think I’m funny.
