Yup, I done got to my 300th post on this little bitty blog.
Howdy do folks!
Today you're gonna experience a rarity: a post in which I absolutely say nothing of consequence, importance or of note.
Unlike my 200th post, in which I got a few friends from the chat rooms to stop by and write a few good/bad/strange words about me (and which nasty people in the chat rooms used for cannon fodder for insult purposes back in January/February), this time I have no all star spangled lineup waiting to pinch hit for me.
In fact, the problem I had at the time was trying to figure out what to write about for such a special occasion. When I first decided to finally sit down and write this post, I drew a blank for about fifteen minutes or so. Then an idea finally popped in my head, which was this:
HOW 'BOUT I WRITE ABOUT A DAY IN THE LIFE OF G?
So I whipped out my handy dandy pen and paper, and began writing about a day in the life of G. Well, after writing about one and a quarter pages, I said to myself, "Golly gee, this is terrible." (I actually didn't say that, but I'm trying to keep this blog unfettered by select adjectives, so work with me on this) and tore out the pages and made a couple mini paper basketballs out of them.
So back to the drawing board. A couple of hours later, after getting back from running an errand, I thought, "G, why don't you write a story about sound effects?" (not really, but refer to the previous paragraph) Righto, so I whipped out my pen and paper and did this:
"Hold your horses, I coming!"
Plus several more stupid cliches, plus a silly hundred word story, plus a bad reference to Don Music (if you don't know, then you simply didn't watch the right kind of kiddie t.v. while growing up), plus a bad reference to Monty Python, plus worked in the following lyric:
"I'll talk to you later, I don't want to hear it again tonight, I'll just see you around."
And you know where that little ditty wound up, right?
So back to the drawing board we go.
I could write a thinking out aloud post, but I'm fresh out of ideas at the moment.
I could write a post about writing, but I already covered that in the previous post.
I could write a post about why I started blogging and all things blog related, but I worked that death here, here, here, here, and especially, here, here, here, and here.
But since I won't torture my readers with endless links to other posts within my blog (gotcha!), I will leave you with this simple revelation to look forward to:
Number 350 will be appearing on November 24th (I know, I know, it's sad, but the pattern of one post every other day makes it incredibly easy to state that the post will pop up on that day). I'll be looking for a volunteer (or volunteers) who would be willing to run amok for a post on this blog. That is your topic of conversation for the late summer and fall.
In the meantime, here's the thought for the day: If you try to fail and succeed, which have you done?
