At a Loss

Well there’s something new. I’m at a loss for words. For the past two days I’ve not had a single thing to write about. This is highly unusual since I normally have no trouble rambling about stupid things. Yet now I can’t even think of a current event, stupid statistic, or funny story to share.

My sister-in-law is out of the hospital. Things with Randy are going well. Work is going well (though slightly busier than normal since it’s budget preparation time).

If I can continue posting blog entries like this I’ll never retain readers. I suppose I could make stuff up…but I don’t even feel creative enough to fabricate a story that would be entertaining enough lure in readers. I could always just type in words that will pop up when people do internet searches: sex, drugs, gay, Viagra, breast enlargement.

But do I really want those types of readers? Oh wait – it’s too late. I already typed those words. Ugh.

I’m signing off. Hopefully my life will encounter some excitement in the next 24 hours (preferably good excitement). If not, remind me to tell you about my childhood friend’s father who used to make passes at me.

    DUDE! Who’s dad did THAT? JESUS.

    It’s okay Karl. Sometimes we just haven’t got anything to say. The blog will be here, and so will I. Mwah.

    Just post pictures if you don’t have anything to write. A picture a day, that’s my goal. 🙂

    You forgot to add the keywords: “Britney, panties, beaver, and cooch.”

    Haha – Dave – touche. Karl, you must tell us that story. Was this all a ploy to create even more drama for the story? Feel free to blog about my scandalous details & inappropriate thoughts (since I tell you all of them!) if you don’t have any yourself – just leave the names of the innocent out of it. Use acronyms!

    I could have written this post, ‘cept my sister wasn’t in the hospital and my partners’ name is Chris. The other stuff?… it works for me. If you want a lot of traffic, just mention the words ‘Steve-O’ & ‘Nude’ in a couple of posts. Holy Crap! I think he’s that guy that was on MTV and in the Jackass movies. And, for whatever reason, people want to see him naked, yet they *always* find my blog instead.

    I’ll always be a reader, regardless of how often you post. I occasionally feel the same way. I wouldn’t worry about retaining readers, the faithful will always return and who needs the others anyway.

    we are in it with you , even on the low days. You are allowed a break from time to time . ( Let’s see….sister-in-law, holidays, travel, cute BF, condo hunting, psycho above your place,cute BF,and now budget time*yikes*)
    And I love how you ended this post…”remind me to tell you about my childhood friend’s father who used to make passes at me.”. Too great.

    Post some of your photos….loved the Japan pics.

    I don’t know what everyone else is talking about, cuz this means we’re through.

    (How many partners does Steve have, exactly?)

    Sometime after February the 8th when I open a monster production at MIT that’s my last design job there ever, we should get together for lunch or dinner. It’s been way too long.

    This has nothing to do with giving you anything to write about. I just thought I’d mention.
