A New Year flip-flop

Hello? Anyone out there? I’m really not terribly sure about this at all. In fact, I’m actually distinctly lukewarm about the whole idea. Or perhaps ‘lukewarm’ is putting it too strongly. I’m also worried about the number of words ending in ‘ly’ that I seem to be using. A sure sign of weakness. I wanted to talk about New Year…you know…thingies. Those – er – firmnesses of resolve that people make a lot of when one year carelessly (sorry!) picks up an extra digit and inadvertently (damn!) becomes another. Year, I mean.

Anyway. My thought was that this blog suffers from institutional neglect. Were it a cat or a dog, I would be had up for cruelty. I felt that it might benefit from a bit more – um – discipline on my part. Instead of posting once every not very often, I might bestir myself to write some meaningless tarradiddle (if you’ve read this far, you will have a good grounding in precisely what that involves), let’s say once a (gasp!) week.

There, I’ve said it. The cat is out of the bag, the genie out of the bottle and there is no going back.

Of course, there may be slippage…

Now, what was that lovely KJ Waters telling me? Something about a Lobster Blog Award.

No good can come of it.

A Hippy Blue Year to you all.

  1. Emmmmm, blathering but I see no real discussion of lobsters, Stuart. Hop right to it, get yer claws into the piece and write it my friend. Your readers want to know boxers or briefs and what movie you like…

    Looking forward to it!!

    • Haha! Sorry, KJ. The writing is done, I’m just trying to gather the blogs with less than 200 followers. I might do it in two posts. Anyway, it’s been good fun so far, so thanks again for the nomination.

  2. So, (yes, I meant for that comma to be there) are we holding you to this once a week promise? *time lapse* Lobsters, huh?

    • There or thereabouts, Eileen! The most recent post was a tad late, but then I’m about to post again almost immediately, so the average is going to work out okay, I think. So far…
