Last Friday, I did not do a Random post. I had done them for a few weeks, and really, I was not feeling random. Anyway, one missed week does not make a trend.
A long time ago (August 2006), I wrote a blog entry called, "Spam E-mail Message from Claire". It was not particularly good, but a few days ago I got a comment by Anonymous, that said, "Very nice site! Gendron wheelchairs Upskirts and pantyhose casblanca swimsuits Marian keyes books no dress rehearsal svenska Newest 5 reel free slots Review 1990 bmw 735 Boing dog toy Pdas finder Brookline regional catholic school" So a blog entry about spam produced spam. That had to make me laugh. I have sense removed the comment.
Have you ever noticed that some words, despite their origins and meanings, are always coupled with a common or trite phrase? For instance crock, whose definition is "an earthen jar; made of baked clay". It is frequently associated with poop (sh*t). I feel sorry for such a vessel. A very warm and earthy vessel, forever entwined with poop. Tragic.
I added someone to my blogroll recently, and you know, the person had the same basic blog title as someone else. Here is an idea for a book – common blog names. You know, they have baby name books, and now that blogging and vlogging are popular, why not a comprehensive book for selected blog/vlog titles.
Here is something weird. I have another blog – that I don't publicize here – and now that I did not post for a couple of weeks, traffic has increased. What the heck is going on here? Absolutely bizarre. So when I wrote about traffic the other day, it turns out that I did not know what I was talking about. Apparently bad writing and infrequent posting may drive traffic.
Someone told me Harry Potter's butt is now on the Internet. Isn't that child porn? I mean, I don't know how old Daniel Radcliffe is (I had to google the name, and after googling it, it appears he is underage), but he is a boy. And, no, I have not seen his tush.
I don't give out my phone number, and I find it interesting how loosely others give out their phone number. Several businesses ask for it, and I always refuse. One actually said they needed it, so I proceeded to walk out of the store without purchasing the item. The clerk said, "No, I can sell it to you without the phone number." I still left. I figured anyone who would lie to get a home phone number was not someone I wanted to do business with.
I never want to have to type with my thumbs. I don't play video games so my thumbs are fairly dumb. I can type fast, but I use all of my fingers. How can I un-learn to re-learn with just thumbs.
Are our lives so dull that we want to watch others on national shows (reality shows) or vlogs? Do we want to know what people eat, what they think, how they part their hair? I hope we are not all that dull.
Rate My Blog
I have recently heard about blog explosion, and now that I signed up on it, more to figure out what it is, I think it is sort of a waste of time. You basically can browse blogs, and if you do so, they send you a little traffic as well. That being said, if anyone is on Blog Explosion and you feel inclined, you can rate my blog. And if you want me to, I can rate yours as well. I don't quite get the site (meaning, I have not wasted a bunch of time browsing through it). When I ask it for a random blog (blog browsing), I did not find any worthwhile. Anyway, if anyone has signed up, I would be willing to rate your blog. But please send a link because I don't want to figure out another way to get to the site.
I saw a slinkie the other day, and you know, slinkies are no longer made of metal. I could not believe it. They are made of plastic. What is this world coming to? Well, you may be able to get a metal one, but in the toy store they only had plastic ones.
Rate My Blog Part II
Er, since I just got rated by ITTM and the crap beat out of me on the rating (really, the comments), perhaps I really don't want you to rate me. Or if you rate me, don't call me the C-word. There are lots of other words at your disposal.
Have you ever looked at someone else's computer desktop and wanted to just throw the person out of their chair and clean up their desktop. Well, that's how my computer desktop is right now, and I am waiting for someone else to clean it up. Not really, but sort of really. I need to clean my computer desktop.
