I does a lart o’ la’eral thinkin’…tha’s to say I thinks lyin’ down.
And one of the lightweight little thoughts that fluttered by was: is erratic, occasional posting like the half glass? Is it worth imbibing or simply a waste of our time since we don’t experience the full, rounded flavour and all the subtle nuances of the beverage?
And it was not a giant leap from this thought to parody (hey! in my thinking position, nothing’s a giant leap!)
And I wondered if…
… Now that I’m busy, struggling to post
Maybe once a week
Will you still be coming here, looking for laffs?
(Maybe you’re just coming here, looking for gaffs!)
If I gave up and deleted the blog
Would you howl for more?
Will you still need me…
Will you still read me…
When I’m sixty four?
And if I offered a “little something” as a thankyou, would anyone be interested? Depends what’s on offer, I hear you all chorus! Depends what we have to do for it, I hear others mutter.
It’s a lino print and, being too big for my scanner I’ve had to crop a rather mediocre photo. It measures 47x19cm or 18 1/2 x 7and a half inches.*
And all you have to do is answer some simple questions. Then leave your answers in the comments section of this blog post. On the blog’s third anniversary I’ll count up all the correct answers and one of my able assistants will draw a winner from a hat. Or perhaps I’ll get all technical and use one of those random generator wotsits. Like ERNIE. (Is ERNIE still going? The bugger has never picked me so I don’t think he’s very efficient!)
Question #1. How did I introduce myself when I started blogging?
This page will self-destruct in -oh! no , that was “Mission Impossible.” This is much easier.
Question #2 will be in tomorrow’s post.
Not part of the game, but here’s a question:
*Why did Mr. Gates and his little elves not put simple fractions on the keyboard? Who can be bothered scrabbling around in the symbols chart for 1/2 expressed as 1 above, as opposed to beside, 2?
