National Blog Posting Month
And so it begins. I have signed on to write every day this month. I have no idea what I am going to say every day. Or any day for that matter. I have not been stockpiling ideas for the last couple of weeks that I’ve known about this month-long venture. I can assure you that you will not be reading 30 days of the most profound material you have ever read. Some days I will try to be funny — emphasis there on the word “try.” Some days I will be serious. Some days I will be stupid — emphasis there on the words “will be.” If I insert a video clip or pictures on any particular day, I intend to supplement that with a written post as well. I don’t want to take short-cuts to maintain my eligibility for the “prizes” that are being randomly distributed to NaBloPoMo participants.
One word of caution. If you visit the NaBloPoMo site, they have a feature that allows you to click on the “randomizer” button and view the blogs that are registered to participate this month. They come up randomly — hence the title. Please know that while many blogs post pictures on their sites, some post pictures that are not suitable for everyone’s eyes. I got an eyeful — so to speak — when I clicked on the randomizer last week and landed on a site that features unclothed XY–chromosomed humans. I was “lucky” enough to land on a day that featured very old unclothed heterogametics — emphasis there on the words “VERY OLD.” I could not click the red X to close the window fast enough. The moral of this story is that if you choose to randomize, keep your finger on the left click in case you need to avert your eyes rapidly.
In other news, we took Keegan out trick-or-treating last night. Superman took home a lot of candy. More on that later when I can supplement the post with some pics of the K-Man of Steel. Of course, my dog neighbors used the occasion to remind me of last Saturday’s debacle in Jacksonville. I believe my initial thoughts were something to the effect of “just shut up and give my kid a snack-size Snickers before I kick your jack-o-lantern off your front porch.” But I’m not bitter or anything.
