The blog identity

Hmm… I had been waiting for my one hundredth post to roll around with the hopes of having something special to write for you, but that just isn’t going to be the case.

If you haven’t guessed, this is my 100th post (195 posts minus 95 Asides), which to me is quite amazing considering it came in less than a year and I’m not exactly a writer. But then, I guess that’s what actually got me to finally writing this post and maybe it will be something special, or maybe just different.

Back when this blog started with Walk This World, I told you I wasn’t a writer, yet, that’s what I think I found myself trying to be much of the time. Trying to write game, movie, music, comics or television *reviews* like I was some kind of pajama journalist/critic.

I suppose doing that kind of thing gave me an excuse to post something, but it is definitely not a strong point and that is why I have abandoned that kind of thing over the last few months… or at least that is what I am telling myself. I’m sure it has nothing to do with the fact that, yes, while busy at work, I still haven’t had much desire to blog stuff when I have had time.

I think that has a lot to do with the fact that I got it in my head that has to be some put together thing rather than a stream of conscious… which is what this post actually is… and what I think I should do more of… and oh, by the way, screw trying to use proper grammar and that. I’m not a writer, nor an editor, remember?!

I think this new approach gets me back to the original idea behind a blog, right?

Yes, while there are plenty of blogs out there that have become reliable sources of news, gossip, review, what have you, I’m not aiming to become that, nor did most folks when this blog thing started. The idea was a blog, a weblog, was meant to be an on-line diary or journal, not some new kind of media outlet.

So, I’m going to get back to roots, or whatever. I’m going to get it out of my head that I have to have some grand post every time out. That it is okay to just post quicker hits about something that happened.

The example I’ll give you is that I never told you ten folks about watching the Scrubs episode “My Best Friend’s Baby’s Baby and My Baby’s Baby” and shooting coffee everywhere… out my nose.

Yeah, if you watched the episode, you’ll remember Turk having his hand stuck in the ice machine and J.D. sitting with him talking to Carla on the mobile as she’s in labor. Well, while taking a big old tug on my lahge regulah, Carla told J.D. to slap Turk, which he did, and that coffee wasn’t going to return to the cup thru that small hole. No, I lost it and sprayed it all over my new, fleece sleepy pants, the coffee table — so that’s what it is for! — and the rug… thru my nose… okay, and a little bit out of my mouth.

The best part about it was I couldn’t stop laughing because of what just happened, but also because the hits, or rather the slaps, kept coming on the show with the Janitor taking over for J.D. and giving Turk a couple more. I went into my kitchen, crying with laughter trying to get paper towels to clean up my reaction.

Best part of it all? For the rest of the night, and maybe a little bit the next morning before showering, I could smell the sweet smell of Dunkin Donuts coffee whenever I breathed in. Yeah, it was a beautiful thing. I wonder if I had any good dreams about coffee that night…

Incidentally, you should be watching Scrubs every damn week people and why… WHY! is it the only sitcom in that two hour block that is not HD!? Not that it needs it, but WHY!? Oh, and in watching Scrubs in syndication, I was reminded a few weeks ago that Turk had gotten his hand caught in the candy machine last season trying to get his Rolos. Mmm… Rolos.

Anyway, that’s the kind of thing I should immediately blog because that is me and it is unique and it actually might be of some interest to you. Heck, it might actually cause you to comment!

So, expect more of that. I’ll still sprinkle in the thoughts about the telly, tunes and that stuff, but only because it is cool to me to log that stuff for my own personal future reference. It would be cool if you picked up a CD or started watching a show because I liked it, but that’s not my goal. I’m not here to get hits on my blog or to gather Google AdSense blood money.

No, I am here to bore you while entertaining myself… and not proof this post.

That, is my Blog Identity.
