Okay, now I have gone and done it… 500 times I have written something and posted it on WordPress. I have officially crossed into that territory known as obsessive-compulsive writing. I blogged before when I was a substitute teacher waiting for classroom wounds to heal back in 2005-2007 (Oh, and landing a new teaching job after the Wicked Witch of Creek Valley made me temporarily radioactive… another story for another day). I blogged on Xanga. I have shared blogs on Google+ and Facebook as well, but nowhere have I ever piled up this much foo-bah and wildly wasted wordage as I have here. So, why am I doing it? Because I care about writing… I need to do it every day… and just like I taught English students for 31 years in middle school and high school, the circle of writing is not complete if you don’t share it. I had to close a lot of circles to get where I am now.
There are other things I have accomplished as well. I have paffoonied all over my blog with cartoons and drawings and scribbles and foofy drivel. I have made up words like “foofy” and “paffooney” and made them a regular part of a Mickian lexicon. (Mickian = distinctly a part of the overall Mickey Universe, or Mickiverse, if you will.) I have stunk up the place with numerous word-farts in the form of parenthetic expressions (set off with parenthesis) (and I bet you thought that was due to random brain spasms occurring in all the wrong places rather than a thought-out part of a conscious style… well, you may have been right about that.) I have shared the artwork and literature and movies and even the music that I love with you, hoping to pass on some of the same infatuations that informed my inner thought-life and made me the mess that I am.
Let me briefly re-use some of my artwork that has been posted here to give you a cruel aftertaste of what I have been up to here in this blog;
So far all this blogging and posting has lead to a lot of me getting spread across tiny slices of the internet like warm, squishy butter on super-absorbent toast. So far it doesn’t seem that the taste of it has seriously offended anyone’s palate. One never knows, however, what tomorrow will bring. What will I post tomorrow? I have no idea. But unless I drop dead tonight, I will post tomorrow. I have made it my goal to post every single day of 2015. I have not let down yet, four months in… so you should really brace yourself. You may have to endure a lot more.
