Green with envy

It's bright and early on this gray and dreary morning and while I'm supposed to be working already, I thought I'd take a moment to add a post to my blog (for the 3 people who actually want to know what I've been up to)

Mostly, I've been stewing in a creative funk regarding this silly posting page. I know, I know, it's supposed to be a random thoughts, free association, long winded spiel on nothing in particular and everything in general. I can't help it. I always want my posts to be snappy, witty and catchy. I suspect I'm failing on everyone of those levels, but I still like to try. Of course, what I'm doing in the meantime is checking out other people's blogs and turning green with envy about the apparent ease with which they make a post come to life. I read some of my friend's blogs and I can just about hear them talking to me and I'm laughing as I imagine their nuances and facial expressions. I'm also reading other people's blogs (people I'm never going to meet) and marveling at their mastery of the English language and the clever way they write - darn it I want to be perceived as intelligent and suave. I want to be one of the cool kids!

Instead, my dear readers, what you get is this. Your basic bundle of neurosis and self doubt. I only hope that on occasion you chuckle - if not with me, then at least at me.

Check out some of the blog links I have on my page. Who knows? Maybe you'll find a new favorite.
