I Don't Change Just To Keep Up With The Joneses

I got to thinking over the weekend, well not really over the weekend but more like on Friday which is sort of weekendish, about what to write for this here blog and the initial results weren't too promising.


Well, to tell you the honest truth, I've been running out of things to write about. Friday's post was actually conceived last week and since then, it was silently imploring to use it on the blog. However, after posting that, it left me with the predicament of what to write for the upcoming week on this blog. Well, not so much a predicament on what to write because fortunately for me (which kind makes the opening sentence of this paragraph moot), I was able to use my eavesdropping skills at work and picked up on a sentence to use for a blog post: "I got an itch to scratch".

Yes, you are correct about that assumption. For those of you who are new readers to this blog, I have from time to time, written some mighty strange posts that have originated from snippets of conversations. Occasionally, those snippets have produced the kind of posts that have forced me to use my adult oriented blog, Partially Yours as a pinch hitter, most notably, this particular post.

Now in addition to that wonderful little tidbit, I came up with another little tidbit, courtesy of my good friend Riot Kitty. And while I was thinking about how to write using that tidbit, I thought of another.

Presto! Ideas for three posts!

Change-o! Can't put them here!

Viola! I'll put them over at Partially Yours!

So my friends, for this particular week, Cedar's Mountain will be taking a road trip to the provocative side of blogging to flex his rather overactive imagination. I know that for some of you, due to the various programs install on your computer, you won't be able to visit that blog during the daytime. But I sincerely hope that you do visit at night.

Having said that, here is the obligatory disclaimer:

Warning: the post that you're about to read has sexual themes and colorful language. Reader discretion is strongly advised.

Today's post is called Doing The Pogo Isn't All That It's Cracked Up To Be


  1. At first I thought that said, "Doing the Poo" and I was like, I am NOT reading that! But, thankfully, I noticed the 'g' just in time. Great story... !!

  2. ExtraO: Long time no see! Hope you're doing well.

    Yeah, I could see where that would be extremely gross. Even I wouldn't read something like that.

    I'm surprised that someone else got the reference to the word "Pogo". Sometimes old pop culture isn't quite understood by everyone.

  3. Glad I gave you some material! Will check out the other post at home ;)

  4. R: You're always giving me good suggestions for my blog. That whats make you so special. :D

  5. Once again. I admire how you can keep an almost daily blog rolling. As you can see, I'm not so good.

  6. David: Gracias.

    To be honest, it's been a tough road these past few months in coming up with new material. I think what makes it so hard to come up with fresh stuff from time to time is that my blog is more of a general perspective about my life and the world around me. If if it was more specialized, I think it would be easier to come up with fresh stuff.

    Having said that, I still enjoy writing stuff for my blog 3x a week, no matter how daffy or serious it gets.

    I think you do very well for your blog. You use it as a promotional vehicle for your various writing endeavors with a few choice personal asides thrown in from time to time, so it suits your needs just fine. Irregularity can be just as fun, if not more so, than regularity.

  7. My blog post ideas come in fits and starts like that too. No ideas for a while, and then three ideas at once. Not sure why.

  8. Charles: Its funny how it happens like that.

    During my last couple of weeks on Facebook, I put out a call for ideas because I was fresh out. Didn't get any so to speak, but a few days later I started getting a few ideas independent of that call.

    Still got one more up my sleeve for this week for Friday, and I think I'll be able to feed next week via some of the comments and other conversational snippets from this week.

  9. I too get my brain on many odd tangents just by hearing a phrase or miss-construing words out of context- but my brain is creatively warped to begin with!
    I see yours is too- Off to read...

  10. Ah! And I have too many things to blog about, it's hard to streamline my thoughts :'(

    Cheers [_]@

  11. Snaggle: Mine has always been creatively warped. It just took blogging to bring it to fruition. :D

    Chintan: I was like that at one point. Back in '09, I had so many posts pre-written and stashed in a notebook that it took me until early November (the first one went up around June) to use them all.

    Now it's basically a week-to-week kind of thing.


Go on, give me your best shot. I can take it. If I couldn't, I wouldn't have created this wonderful little blog that you decided to grace with your presence today.

About that comment moderation thingy: While yes, it does say up above I can take it, I only use it to prevent the occasional miscreant from leaving thoughtless and/or clueless comments.

So remember, all of your comments are greatly appreciated and all answers will be given that personal touch that you come to expect and enjoy.
