Two trains passing in the night

Once every 35 or so blog posts I get really impressed.

What? Don't you?

Anyway, I get so impressed I just feel like everyone should know. So I go tell them. I mean everyone I can find.

"This is really good!" I exclaim, referring I guess to me saying "This is really good!" which, laid out here, seems vaguely confusing.

I'm trying, you see, to be self-aggrandizing.

My feeling is that if I don't self aggrandize no one will do it for me.

But when I do it everyone just thinks I'm kidding. So that doesn't work out, for good or ill.

And if they don't think I'm kidding, I think they are.

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.
