Meme’s the Word

It’s been quite a while since I posted anything on this little blog of mine and it is beginning to feel neglected.

So this is yet another abandoned blog story.

I can almost hear Sarah McLachlan singing in the background while this emaciated blog stares up at the camera, shivering.


But not to fear.  I have adopted it (again) and promised to take better care of it.  I gave it a good, sudsy bath in in something guaranteed to rid it of idea mange, writer’s block, nervous tics, and fleeing motivation.  As you can see, it looks much better now.


Unfortunately, I also had to get the blog neutered as part of the arrangement.  Make of that what you will.  No spin-off blogs maybe?  I’m too tired of this metaphor to stretch it any thinner than it already is.  It is already basically just a membrane.

The word “membrane” sounds like a compounding of the words “memory” and “brain”.   Some people have a thinking brain.  Some have a visioning brain.  Others have a memory brain (or membrane).

I, on the other hand, have a meme-brain.  For some reason, all my thoughts are in the form of stupid memes.


Anyway, it’s obvious I haven’t got any good ideas for a blog right now.  People think writing is easy.  And writing actually is pretty easy.  The hard part is coming up with ideas.  What seems like a good idea while far away from a keyboard can suddenly turn into a horrible idea when you can actually get your fingers on a keyboard.



It is ideas like that which lead to “post post stress disorder”.



And then the regret begins …



And how you think it will be received.


And, in actuality, is probably how it WILL be received.

Anyway, thanks for sticking with me this long as I try to get the ol’ creative juices flowing.

Oh, and please check out my latest Alistair and Alexis short comedy story.  It sort of died on the vine because I published it on a Monday.



Have a happy Saturday!


  1. Very enjoyable post, Biff! Your sense of absurdity and downright silliness is right on point. (too many glances into the sherry glass?) You baffled me with your naughty talk of blog neutering. You owe me for all the therapy I will need to process THAT.

  2. I must admit, I’m not in to these meme things at all. This indicates, having neither of the other types of brain you say there are as well, thinking and visioning or memory, I have no brain. This may not be much of a surprise to anyone who has been anywhere near my blog.
