Why I Blog

I previously served noticed that I wouldn't do another one of these memes. But my predecessors in this chain include such outstanding bloggers like Media Lizzy (who, I hear, has a thing for the portly man), and Blandly Urbane, who tagged me in a drive-by, that it would be presumptuous to decline.

So, five reasons why I blog:

5. My kids are grown and out on their own and my dog doesn't seem too interested in the arcanum to which I am drawn, and much less my opinions on them.

4. It is a form of therapy -- I get to work out my "issues" by pretending I am talking about the "Issues".

3. The gobs of money that the click-pay ads bring in . . . . if I ate at Burger King, it wouldn't pay for a decent meal there . . . .

2. No one can stop me.

1. Because freedom is, indeed, untidy. It is a big, fat, slob of a burden that we all carry. Janis was wrong . . . it means there's a lot left to lose . . . . .

and the next victims are:

Phillybits
John Morgan
Coyote Angry
Patrick Hillman
and, that wacky blogger himself,
Dr. Mahmood Ahmadinejad (now, don't go all nuclear on me Ahmaddy, pal)


Okay, that's it, and this time I mean it . . . .

LOL, I never dreamed of being on a list with Mahmood Ahmadinejad so I'm going to have to run with it ;).

I'll have to think on this BFS, as I'm not sure I have five solid reasons.
