First the explanation. The comments for yesterday’s post fell largely into four categories 1) "If you need a break, then do what’s right for you", 2) "Keep writing you bastard, you must amuse us regularly", 3) "Suck it up, we all run out of things to say occasionally. Get over it.", and 4) "Don’t compare yourself to Ree, you’ll just feel inadequate".
For those of you in Category 1, "Thank you". For the Category 2s out there, "Whatever". If you were in Category 3, "I haven’t run out of things to say, just the motivation to say them". And finally for the Category 4 group, "It was just coincidence that I mentioned Ree in this post (and I only mentioned her by way of a compliment to her, not a comparison to me), as reading her post was the last thing I did before writing my own."
Funnily enough, there was no-one in category 5) "Hey I know what that building is!" so this clicky linky should be of interest to all of you. If the link works (
I say that because I’ve bypassed the sign in page that asks some questions **immediate update, "oh no you didn’t", I couldn’t by-pass the sign in). If you have the time, enter the site and check it out (do yourself a favour and take the virtual tour at the bottom of the home page), if not then this link gives enough info, but the first link is better.
The fact is, I’ve been feeling a general malaise for a few weeks now, maybe it’s all the pollen or the the change of seasons, I don’t know, but it has manifested itself in an overall apathy towards blogging. And as you know I don’t normally write about such things (there’s enough out there who do to fulfil the needs of those who like to read about it). I’m not sinking into depression or anything, I just have an overwhelming feeling of blah…
Plus, my Daily Trivia quiz isn’t working out how I planned. It was meant to be an ego boost for me, but I’ve been consistently copping a hiding from a bunch of you, some whom don’t even read the Dingo!
Thanks Jen, even though you only award me these things to see what I do with them I’m touched. This first one she gave me seems to have something to do with Saturday Night Fever, though I’m not sure why. But then I’m not sure why people feel compelled to keep coming up with awards either.
Now this next one has to be without a doubt the ugliest looking piece of crap I’ve seen in years! I don’t even know what it’s for, but it sure is ugly. Come on! People put these in their sidebars, how about making them a little more attractive!
If I feel like it, I’ll write the next bit of the hot and passionate love story (yeah sure) about me and MDW later today.
