Nothing Happened Today

The thing about this blog-writing lark is that you have to come up with an interesting incident or thought every day, more or less, well that’s the theory anyway. But as we know, in practice the theory is different.

There are days when you settle down at your keyboard, take a sip of beer or G+T, and review your day and think, “Christ on bike! Nothing happened today, nor an original thought (or one I delude myself it to be,) that would interest me, let alone the poor sods who might actually read this drivel.”

Other folk press ahead regardless with dull posts. We know who they are and we know where they live, at least their cyberspace addresses and we avoid them like a cliché. Or the plague.

Some can get so dull that they become interesting. Like this one (thanks to Son of Groucho) which raises dullness to a point that of Xen. I can almost hear the one hand clapping.

All of which is my round-about way of saying that nothing happened today.

Except I was listening to a 1998 edition of the News Quiz in the car. It was a cutting about how the blokes who have to approve the names of racehorses and how careful they have to be.

“Norfolk an’ Chance” nearly slipped through the net. Yes, I had to think for a moment.

    I cheat the Scaryduck way. If I have a thought, I write it down and bloat it out in Notepad. Then, if I have a dull day, I just pop something out of my backlog into my blog.

    That way, I can have a creative day and save some of the stuff for later.

    God's truth, I hear something on the radio or in the paper and then sit right down and write myself a letter.
