I have been waiting three weeks to start this blog. Ever since my friend whereupon Lon started her blog I have wanted to start one too. And before you go saying that I am just one of those people who copies others, I will freely admit that I am, but it’s because I think what you are doing is awesome not because I want to be more awesome than you.
I suppose I should also say at the outset that I am not all that crash hot at using commas. So I may have really giant sentences, like the one above, or some really short ones. Also, I like to create one sentence paragraphs. Always have. Used to get in trouble for it in English, but that didn’t really stop me then, and it sure doesn’t stop me now (even if I am an English teacher).
Anyway, the whole reason I say that I have been waiting three weeks to start this blog is because it means that I have three weeks of ideas to record. Each time I have done something new, or had what I consider to be an earth shattering thought, I have said to myself (mostly in my mind, but also occasionally out loud), that I will need to write that on my blog.
The whole reason I have taken so long to blog is that I could not settle on a domain name. The day after I saw Lon’s blog I had a dream where I thought of the best, most witty, cutting edge name for a blog that ever there was. And then I forgot it.
So I have spent the last three weeks trying to remember it, or come up with a great new one.
I thought I had done it today when I settled on
chapter in my life entitled
But then I googled it to check that no one else was using it. And someone was! It wasn’t on WordPress, and it wasn’t their domain name, but it was the name of their blog, and I didn’t want to make things confusing. For those of you who don’t know it is a name based on a line from a Lucksmith’s song So I guess it was not as original as I thought.
Then I thought – what other songs do I like? And then it struck me, I have been listening to a lot of Washington lately, and the song I love to belt out in the car as I drive home (that’s the only place I sing, I might add) is Cement And I thought
it’s only words
Would make an awesome blog title too. But someone else had also beat me to the punch there as well. So then I settled on
you know how people talk
And here we are.
Prepare to be overloaded with inane things from my life.
Coming up next blog: why a blog now? (But with a way catchier title than that)
Just as an aside, you might like to know that it is very hard to watch SBS2 and blog, mostly because the show I am watching is in French and I cannot see the subtitles and type at the same time. Just saying.
