A Post A Day Keeps The Guilt Away

I have always tried to post everyday. It’s been a source of pride for me to say that I have posted something here basically every day since I began blogging. This has been made very easy for me to do since I don’t leave town very often, can’t be away from my computer for more than a few hours and have managed to somehow not lose both hands to a BBQ accident yet. This last piece of luck is certainly not for a lack of trying. When I light up a charcoal grill, I think it can be spotted from earth’s orbit.

This post will be a little different and much shorter as the holidays are proving to be the busiest time of the year for me. As all of the visits from and with family and friends increase, I’ve found it harder the last few days to find the time to get a decent post in (not to mention visiting my favorite blogs). I was going to let the evening pass without posting, but as the sands dropped through the hourglass (sorry, my wife watches ‘Days of Our Lives’), the guilt finally got to me.

So here I sit, late into the evening, typing something for the sake of saying I posted something today. It’s a cheap thing to do (I feel dirty and will have to take a shower after I post this), especially when I could write about the $110 dollar hamburger being offered in Indonesia or the fact that the last 10 files from John Lennon’s FBI documents were released and amounted to what a ten year old would be able to tell you about him (did you know his songs showed he held revolutionary views?). Apparently our government feared foreign retaliation for what the last harmless 10 Lennon files contained. Did our leaders think he was going to help Yoko Ono take over our country in a coup funded by bad art? I hear that her army was called Instant Karma. Well J. Edgar Hoover, whatever gets you through the night…it’s all right…it’s all right…

You know, I think the same way. I wanted to take these last couple of days off from blogging...and I just can't do it...I was late one morning posting...and it gnawed at me til I did it...OMG What are we going to do? If I didn't see a post here at your site I would start to worry about ya! It's got us bad, this blogging's a real monster! But a fun one!
PEACE AND I HOPE SANTA BRINGS YOU WHAT YOU ASKED FOR! Happy Holidays to you and yours!!!

Addict. :-)

(but look who's talking?) Haha!

Those FBI files intrigued me for a while, until I read the news stories about them. Jeeez.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year, Michael!
