August. I came. I saw. I kicked its ass!

31 Aug

With this blog post I have successfully completed my “Blog a Day for the Month of August” challenge. (I…Rule.)

I’ve had an excellent month, though it was one that began and ended with the tragic loss of two of my favorite icons of pop culture.  It all started late on a Friday night, as I sat in front of my computer, drinking and writing a blog, a manner in which I spend many a Friday night.  I began a blog that was meant to be a political rant, but discovered in the midst of it that Rowdy Roddy Piper had passed away, and quickly jumped track to eulogize the professional wrestling legend. By the time I posted it, it was Saturday morning, August 1st.

Another Friday Night and I Ain’t Got No Roddy

The next night I wrote a follow up post, explaining the title of the previous night’s blog.  It was then I realized I might have a chance at a blog a day for an entire month, as here it was only the second day of the month, and I had already posted TWO BLOGS IN A ROW!!!  (A heretofore unheard of effort.)

Another Saturday Night and I Ain’t Got Nobody

Next I added an excerpt from my journal, A blog about a boring walk across town, and a reblog of my very first blog, which I thought was ok since I had never in fact posted it to my own blog.  (They were all pretty much cop outs, but hey, they were still blog posts, and I know at least one person besides myself liked them.)  Then I crafted what I believe to be my finest fucking blog yet.

And followed it up the next evening with an explanatory blog for the previous day’s blogging efforts.  (Have I used the word “blog” enough times yet?  Didn’t think so.)

Profanity is Fucking Hilarious

I then regaled my dear readers with an exciting adventure from the land of the Dollar Store.

After another foray into anti Rescumlican Rantings, I finally got down to penning the tale of my alleged Michael Jackson Puppet Show, a momentous event from my 4th Grade, and one which peers have been pestering me to write for many thousands of centuries.

After a couple more days of blogging I began a ten day paid vacation, at the beginning of which I announced my intentions to consume no less than 100 beers.  (I closed out at 112, though the chart only indicates 104, which is due to the fact that I drank 8 more after posting it.)  I also committed to writing the tale of the most hilarious game of baseball ever played, went to the dinosaur museum, and wrote an epic five part mini series about my experiences at Cedar Point. (In other news of my tumultuous vacation I added the 1000th CD to my collection, had my biggest day ever for Site views, and took part in a Stream of Consciousness Blog Post.)

The sad return to work on Monday did not prevent me from continuing my daily blog posting.  I will admit, the “blog” I posted on the 30th, which was actually just a photo manipulation project, without much text, was sort of a cop out, but what you may not have noticed, even if you’ve been following along, is that I did actually post TWO blogs on August 28th, so I figure it kind of evens out.  I also showed you what my room looks like.

And took part in another Stream of Consciousness Saturday.  This one dedicated to Salvador Dali.

And here at last is my final blog for August, thus completing my blog a day promise, a promise I myself thought I hadn’t a snowball’s chance in hell of accomplishing.  Of course, according to Dante, Hell is actually a very very cold place.  (So maybe he was right.)

And to end August on yet another note of sadness, I found out this morning that Wes Craven, master of horror has died.  The world of horror will never be the same.  Tomorrow night, I think I might write a whole blog post dedicated to him, and my love for his movies, which may very well start me off on the right foot towards the successful completion of a blog a day for the entire month of September, but I cannot and will not make any such lofty promises at this time.

    Congrats on making your goal of a post every day in August. I couldn’t even hope to pull such a thing off. I’m lucky if I post 2-4 times a month. If I were you, I’d take a long nap. Or at least veg out in front of the TV. You’ve earned it.

      I figure I’ve earned a few white russians. (Even though I have to work in the morning… but ta hell with it!)

      • Carrie Rubin September 1, 2015 at 12:23 am #

        You’re a hardier man than me. Which I guess isn’t surprising because I’m not a man. Though the ugly man shoes I wear would beg to differ.

    What Carrie said…. of course, veggin’ in front of the TV after working 10+ hours each day is what’s preventing me from blogging… *sigh* :)~ Good job, Dude!

    • domingosaurus August 31, 2015 at 11:38 pm #

      Thanks! Funny that you just referred to me as Dude, seeing as how I am in fact drinking a Caucasian right at this exact moment! 😉

      • Tina, The Bo Bina September 1, 2015 at 2:08 am #

        LOL – my libation of choice, and one of the funnier Jeff Bridges movie… and I believe I referred to you as The Dude the last time I read you were imbibing in the Caucasian!

    Congratulations on the August accomplishment!

    I was very sad to hear about Wes Craven too. If you do write about him, I would be curious to see which movies stand out to you. Nightmare is great, but there were others I liked more.

    • domingosaurus September 1, 2015 at 1:34 am #

      Same here. I think you can count on at least one more day in my streak. (And in it, you will discover my favorite Craven flick. Hint: It doesn’t have Freddy Krueger in it.)

    Can’t imagine the effort it took to post every single day for a month. Hats off to you. I only post twice a week and that’s about enough to kill me. Seriously, by Saturday I’m tapping at the keyboard with just one finger because my other arm’s connected to the life support.
