But I want to run away, and that should count for something

Okay! Okay! I’ll do it. Even though I would rather play chicken on a John Deer lawnmower against semi-trucks, I’ll blog if that is what you want me to do. I’ll take time out of my busy life and *Shudder* follow the crowd.

Blah, blah, blah.

Bullshit, I like technology as much as the next person and you know it. But when crowd goes right, Victor goes left. Besides, what do I have to say that isn’t already out there?

Blah, Blah, blah.

What? There are plenty of naysayers for every conceivable topic in existence, and just as many apologists. Why in the electric blue ether would I want to join their ranks?


Because it makes you laugh. What a reason!

Blah. Blah. Blah, blah, blah.

Well why didn’t you say so in the first place? I can point out stupidity, and God knows, that is something that can never be done enough. But where will I get material?


No! I won’t do it. I research enough at work without having to do it for some hair-brained scheme of yours.


I know I read blogs all the time, but now you're talking about the *shudders again* news.


Fine, but don’t expect me to post often. You’ll be lucky if I log on once a month.

Blah. Blah.

Yeah, you’re welcome.

Above is the conversation I had with my brother last week (paraphrased). He will call it an argument and refuse to post any comments here, but that suits me just fine. I didn’t want to do this anyway. I am here against my better judgment, but there you go.

I’ll be in my trailer.

Yeah... I think I know just the face you were making during that conversation. That Victor's Acting Like He's Listening When All He's Hearing is "Blah, blah, blah," face. I know it well.

I sort of feel for your brother... what was his name again? Stephen? (God, I hadn't had that much wine that night, had I?) I'm not sure if he suggested you blog because he really wants to hear what you have to type or because he thinks it'll be theraputic. For you, that is, not him.

Anyway, I'm going to leave this post now, or else I may as well start my own blog.

I heard what he said. I almost always listen to him--and it was Steven, but unless he spells his name at you, which I've seen him do, it is a mistake most everyone makes.

The therapy angle is a good one. I can't say since he isn't speaking to me at the moment. He isn't mad about the "blah, blah, blahs," so much as about the fact that I "made fun of [him] and ridiculed [him] on the internet where anyone could see." (Actually, he may be mad because when he complained about it, I told him to grow up).

And by all means start a blog. You at least have a reason to be out there. Just let me know when you have it set up so I can post a link to it here.
