It feels like forever since I’ve posted anything on here.
However, a quick glance at ye olde blog on the wall indicates that it’s only been 3 days.
But three days is an eternity in the blogosphere. In three short days you can go from being the toast of the town, the flavor of the month, the cat’s pajamas …. to being a nobody, a has-been, an also-ran.
Real life celebrities don’t become the answer to trivia questions until their career has been over for decades.
A blogger, on the other hand, can be the subject of a “where are they now?” documentary mere minutes after their last post.
Not that I’m complaining. I just can’t believe that three whole days have gone by since my last post. But I really shouldn’t be surprised. It would actually be MORE surprising if my life was interesting enough to warrant more than one blog post in a three day span.
But if high school taught me anything, it’s that I can take something in my life that might warrant a single sentence and turn it into a 500 word thesis, complete with introduction, main body, conclusion, and bibliography. All written in cursive on college-ruled notebook paper (fronts only) in ink with a single staple in the upper right corner at a 45 degree angle to the edges of the paper.
This would be returned to me a few days later with a bright red “F” on it and a note (also in red) scrawled across it saying something to the effect, “Did you even read the book that this report is on?”
The answer to which was, “No. No I did not.”
Nor do any of the resources listed in my bibliography actually exist.
Now take a good look at this post.
This, my friends, is how you write an entire blog post about absolutely nothing.
