What Will I Write About?

20 Apr

Here is my answer:

I don’t know.

I like that.  It is short, concise, and extremely open ended.  All possibilities are left available.

I like it so much I’m going to leave it here all day for all my classes to enjoy, giving myself full credit of course even though I stole it directly from a classic children’s move of the 80’s.  (I call it that because when it came out, I myself was a child, which didn’t stop me from watching it.  It’s also a film I continue to quote to this very day, and sometimes people still get it, which indicates it has more than a little staying power.)

I’ve been toying with the idea of having my own blog for some time, but the big stumbling block has always been trying to figure out what I would write about.  It seems like everyone has a theme these days, so I guess maybe I thought I had to have a theme.

I was recently invited to guest post on a friend’s food and wine blog.  (By which I mean I invited myself, but he was generous enough to allow it.) Here’s a link to his blog.  He’s way better at this than I am.

So could I be a food and wine blogger?  Probably not.  There are about three things that I’m willing to eat, and as I already wrote a blog about cheeseburgers, that really only leaves two more:  plain cheese pizza and plain (or sometimes barbecue) potato chips.  There it is.  There’s my entire food blog potential in one paragraph.  Hope you liked it.  I’m well aware of the fact that I eat like a five year old.  (I’ve been doing it since I was five years old.)  I’m ok with that.  You can keep your squids and your fish eggs and your weird vegetables I can’t pronounce the names of.  I’ll stick with what I know.

As far as wine goes, I love wine, but unfortunately every time I try to drink it I feel like my stomach is on fire for the rest of the night.   So that’s no good. The center will not hold.

So what sorts of things do I like?  Well for one I like to write.  I’ve been doing it since I was a little kid.  I used to make my own little “horror novels” on notebook paper and staple them together and force my family members to read them.  I was convinced I was just as good as Stephen King.  (I wasn’t.)  If I can locate some of these ancient atrocities, which I guarantee I still have somewhere, I may scan them in and post them, just for laughs.  (Because I’ve found out through much trial and error that what I’m particularly gifted at is getting cheap laughs from a seemingly endless supply of self deprecating humor frequently peppered with movie references or other tidbits of pop culture lore. )

I’ve also been keeping a rather voluminous journal since November 6th, 1991.  (How do I know the exact date?  Because I wrote it down, dumb ass.)  Here’s a picture of it, just in case you didn’t believe me.

That’s some five thousand pages of college ruled hand written rambling.  Quite a lot of it was written in a drunken stupor.  Those are the entries I most enjoy reading later, when I can decipher them, which I usually can’t.

I also like music, movies, books, and brightly colored plastic objects.  I do not like long walks on the beach.  In fact I fucking HATE the beach.

So I’m going to write about all those things from time to time, most likely.

I will almost certainly never write about sports, unless it is to point out how meaningless and arbitrary they are.  (I feel much the same way about politics, religion, and reality television.  If I write about any of those things, it will be to make fun of them, including the people who think those things are important.  If that includes you: Good. )

I think that’s about all I got tonight.  Plus I’m almost out of gin, which means I’m probably going to go to the bar.

And if you’re wondering if I plan to be offensive, here it is in the proverbial nutshell:  fuckshitpisscuntcocksuckermotherfucker,

And tits.

    I’ve always thought you needed your own blog. Despite what you think, you really do have a lot of interesting things to say. Much more interesting than me and I’ve had hundreds of blogs lol. But anyway, just write what you’re thinking and feeling. The stuff you write to me and others. You’re a good writer and you draw people in and have a way with words. In other words, blog away big brother. The world needs to hear your points of view.

    Looking forward to more!

      Thanks! Once I get going I will probably post a lot. I’m still figuring out some of the bells and whistles on wordpress, and also pretty busy reading other people’s stuff and trying to build a following of my own. I don’t know why I haven’t done this sooner.

      Oh yeah, because I’m lazy!

        Hahahaha. I sure know that feeling. This is a really cool community of interesting people. I’ve definitely had a lot of fun!

        I laughed reading some of your stuff. And I love laughing.
        Keep writing!

    Reblogged this on Not Necessarily About Dinosaurs or Anything Else and commented:

    In a desperate and probably futile attempt to garner more readership I’ve decided to repost each of my blogs, starting with my first one, which I originally posted on 4/20/2013. It is my plan, at this moment, to repost one per day, in chronological order, but as I rarely go through with any of my plans, it remains to be seen how far I will get with this project. Enjoy!
