We are terribly excited to announce that Clerkmanifesto, this very blog that you are now reading, has 

Nope, we lost them. No longer reading.

Nope, they scrolled down to the picture.

Maybe you should just start it differently?

Clerkmanifesto has done the impossible! We have landed an interview with the dreaded terror of the sidewalks, the flower spy!

Yes, I know, I can hardly believe it myself, but we are going to interview the flower spy!

Pinch me. Ow.

Who is the flower spy?

Um. I guess you haven't checked in on my blog for a week or so. He's like, this guy who walks around taking pictures of flowers. It's all very outre.

What does outre mean?

I haven't any idea really. Let me look it up. 

(Holding music plays, traditionally in this blog we use the classic composition 4'33" by John Cage)

Okay, "outre" means unusual and startling.

Have you ever thought of changing the name of clerkmanifesto to "Outre"?

No. And I really don't see what you're getting at.

So, how did this flower spy agree to an interview?

It was crazy! I just asked him. I don't know what I was thinking, but it worked!

I don't know how to say this, but, this doesn't exactly seem like an interview with the flower spy. It seems more like an interview with, well, you.


Will there be an interview with the flower spy?

I don't know. He's very reclusive. And secretive. And outre. 


Maybe tomorrow?

Again, not criticizing, but, is like every single blogpost forever going to be about the flower spy now?

I mean, not every...

They're not very popular with the readers are they?

They do like the pictures.


They like the pictures.

Ohhhhhhh. Will this one have a picture?

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.
