I once read somewhere that you're not supposed to mention your blog on your blog... or something. It seems like it was C.Jane that said it, but I can't be sure. That sentiment is always in the back of my head when I post stuff like, "Hi. I forgot I had a blog." or "Remember me? I'm Clancy's Blog!" or, "My blog floats like a dead fish in a cold, cold lake in the Black Hills of South Dakota." Maybe I shouldn't be saying such things? Bad blogging ettiquette? Que sera sera. (On a sidenote, I hear Doris Day's voice every time I hear that phrase. Only just now did I realize she was speaking Spanish. Or was she? Here's what Wikipedia has to say on the matter:
"The popularity of the song has led to curiosity about the origins of the saying and the identity of its language. The answer is not simple. It is a centuries-old saying used mainly by English-speaking people. In linguistic terms, "Que será, será" – in the form in which Livingston and Evans adopted it – is a hybrid expression made by superimposing Spanish words on English syntax (somewhat in the way that "Long time no see" consists of English words superimposed on Chinese syntax)."
Hmm. Thanks, Wikipedia! And thanks for bearing with my through my commuters'-nightmare-train-of-thoughts.)
So, it's late... shocking? Not really. What IS shocking is how I'm finding out that in my mid-thirties, it actually IS harder to stay up late and harder to function the next day when I do. 1 a.m. is the new 2 a.m. in my world. Anyway... it's late. So, I will just tell you the #1 reason I'm writing right now.
The great Lynsey has challenged me to a blogging duel. I don't know what this means exactly, but I accepted the challenge because I want to write. I don't know how to make myself any other way at this point, so here I am. One of a pair of combatants in a BLOGGING DUEL!
So... ON GUARD, Lynsey!!
