OH NOSE! Iz Ben Tagged

Da Rulez

Rule 1) List three reasons for your blogging.
Rule 2) List the rules.
Rule 3) Tag three others with the thread.


a) I wanted to practice writing, to keep my hand in, and had begun to feel the need to go on (and on and on) in the comments on OP's blogs, which may have become an imposition, if it wasn't already. The solution was obvious; git yer own durned blog, so I did.

b) I feel even more a part of the kewl kidz group; y'all know who you are. I am bemused by the power of these virtual friendships to become real and lasting, even when we meet "in de flesh."

c)It's easier to be both immediate and more detached simultaneously, which in some cases I find to be a real advantage. In person, I tend to get excited and blurt things out without thinking them through; sometimes that bites my tush.

OK, that's one and two. As to three, play if ya wanna: don't feel ya gotta.

Oh Poop,
I'm supposed to have rules to my blog?
Like you Johny I was spending so much time yammering on other people's blogs I finally broke down and started one of my own. Finally a place for most of my obsessions. A place to put up news stories I found interesting. Most importantly a place where I could put up pics of the Space Shuttle and other nifty-cool NASA images. Proof positive that I will always be a space case!

johnieb said...

Naw, James, just rulez to the answers, if ya wanna play. And when did ya ever care what ya were 'pposed ta do, hah?

Ya do a good blog. I haven't seen ya at TGW lately, but I haven't been there much myself: annoying trolls.

Kirstin said...

I meant "reprobates" in the best possible sense. :-)

The good-naughty, kewl-kid kind. Which you definitely are.

pj said...

Beep! Thankz fer playin'! :D

klady said...

Well, I'm a bit jealous since you're already one of the "kewl kidz" and no doubt I never shall be ("kewl" just not being part of my make up). But if you ever want to jaw about my bullshit, oh esteemed historian, come on over.

I did mine - that was pre-Mimi and Tobias Haller of course!

We will work out a get-together one day soon. I will head down towards the general Westchester/CT vicinity.

FranIAm said...

P.S. You make me blush with your compliments. Unlike Mad Priest's, which had a ring of insincerity to it!!

Kirstin said...

You has a blog. Write in it. :-)

johnieb said...

Egads! My adoring public is getting impatient for my next magnum opus. Me, too.

Yeah really. And what happened to that message my human posted two days ago?

My dear Miss Maya Pavlova,

I have not seen this message two days ago from your human; Miss Scarlett denies having seen/ done anything to it, but, given her "interests" as an unacknowledged co-conspirator, "one never knows, do one."

After supper, I will come up with something. I really don't know what to do with fans: new experience.

The next post may take care of that.
