All miracles are simple.

Stickied Introduction:

In order to prepare for a two week trip with my lovely wife to Rome it is necessary for me to write 20 blog posts ahead of time. I don't have a lot of time to do this. I'm not sure I actually have any time to do this. But I have made a sacred charter, somewhere, I think, that says I must post a new blog post everyday. So I wanted to put a stickied explanation of the desperation of my plight at the top of each of my next twenty blog posts.

I am hoping this will explain why my comments might be (checked (X) as appropriate):

__ Brief

__ Incoherent

xx First drafts

__ Silly

__ Unfinished

__ Borderline plagiarized from someone else

__ Borderline plagiarized from myself

xx Petty about the Internet

__ Pandering to the reader

__ Technically illegal in the country of Turkey

__ Self aggrandizing

__ Ending abruptly

__ Too frank by half

__ Pretty much just the lyrics of some song I like

__ Actually a lot like any of my regular blog posts

This particular post is:

Still only 14 of 20

End of Stickied Introduction

I think due to some math errors I've been stuck on 14 of 20 for, like, three blog posts. But I'm not complaining about this pace, or the difficulty of writing twenty some posts in a few brief days where I'm very busy with a lot of other things. I'm not complaining about writing, which is pretty entertaining, or about the challenge of writing when you can't think of anything to write about and don't have time to think of anything to write about. I'm not complaining about the sinking feeling I get when I send yet another lonely little blog post, like a new Kindergartner, out onto the vast, sad, and coldhearted Internet. I'm not complaining about how late it is, or about how I actually have no idea how I'll squeeze in those precious last six blog posts I have to write before we fly off to Rome.


I get to go with my wife to Rome again, the pretty little town at the center, jammed and sleepy, pastel and glowing, and full of wonders as mundane as the sky above.

Post a Comment

If you were wondering, yes, you should comment. Not only does it remind me that I must write in intelligible English because someone is actually reading what I write, but it is also a pleasure for me since I am interested in anything you have to say.

I respond to pretty much every comment. It's like a free personalized blog post!

One last detail: If you are commenting on a post more than two weeks old I have to go in and approve it. It's sort of a spam protection device. Also, rarely, a comment will go to spam on its own. Give either of those a day or two and your comment will show up on the blog.
