May the blog be with you


noun \ˈblȯg, ˈbläg\

: a Web site on which someone writes about personal opinions, activities, and experiences.

Actually the word blog can be a noun – referring to a specific site or a verb – referring to what I do here.

So, what is it I do here, you may ask?  Other than put people to sleep, rambling on about nonsense?  Hmmm.

Recently, I went for an annual tune-up.  Not the automotive type, checking the ‘vital stats’ of my car, ensuring its performance in subzero temperatures.  And definitely not the yearly ‘turn your head and cough’ evaluation that is just loads of fun for all involved.  Though, I am overdue for both – cough, cough.  Ugh!

I’m talkin’ blog check-up. Ya’ know, tweaking this vehicle of my random rants.   This year I had the privilege to meet with the Blog Master himself – the Yoda of all that is blog.  For simplicity sake, let’s just call him Mark.  I missed Mark in previous years primarily because of scheduling issues.  Also, I really had nothing pressing to discuss.  So, why schedule if there’s nothing to discuss?

This year however, I had a concern.    I work hard on my blog-sense  and wanted to ensure my posts were backed up.  That’s right. I wanted to be archived, baby.  I was assured there is an auxiliary storage system, but I wanted more.  The Yoda master delivered.  Even before I arrived, Mark had a flash drive with already uploaded.     Insert sigh of relief. 

Then he adjusted my settings and panels and a bunch of other shit I have no idea how to access.  So, I am good to … blog on.

Since I referred to Mark as the Yoda of all that is blog here in Traverse City, MI, I googled some quotes from the green guy himself.

  • When nine hundred years old you reach, look as good, you will not, hmmm?

–YODA, Star Wars Episode VI: Return of the Jedi

I may not be nine hundred, but fifty is right around the corner.  However, ‘look as good’ is what I do.  Or at least try to do. Though I am beginning to question my attempt at all that is vane.  I was semi-insulted the other day when someone told me I could easily pass for … 42.  What the fuck is that? 42?  Ugh!

  • If no mistake have you made, yet losing you are … a different game you should play.

–YODA, Shatterpoint

This proverb is right up my ‘I Am’ alley.  For, I Am ready for a  different game to play.

  •  Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.

–YODA, Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace

The quote should really read retail pharmacy IS anger, hate and suffering. Ouch!

Sorry, couldn’t pass up an opportunity to slam my non-fictionalized choice of professions.  But, remember, my game is about to change.

Bring it.  Or in this case, blog it!
