The Soul of Wit

What am I thinking, writing so many words?

When I look at the previous post and realize that I have to scroll down to see it all, even I don't want to read it. This is the Age of Video. Do I think I'm writing for Posterity? Even if Blogger doesn't close up shop and delete everything we've all written, Posterity will have lost the art of reading, so who am I trying to kid?

I'm too long-winded. There are too many revisions. The prose is prolix. I think I'm on the right track using pictures all the time (thus the gratuitous cheesecake above), but when I start writing I must strive for brevity. Discipline, Jones.

So that's all for tonight, except to say that my heart burns with hot, hot love for you all.

LOL Larry...when all else fails...tits and ass never will. For me, it's the midget porn.

I read your last post. Thought it was great, but will leave my comment there next.

What the hell are you talking about? I loved your last post. You had me from the first word to the last.

"my heart burns with hot, hot love for you."

G.D. - I don't know what you mean. I just chose a random picture, thinking the colorful image would get attention. I'm all about the attention.

Aydreeyin - Do you think I should include seminude Hott Boy Toy Studmuffins here, too?

Theresa - ...But you are different. (And you probably don't get HBO.)

t1 - You'd like your buns warmed, wouldn't you?

Indeed, I'm surprised I read it all, but it was a good 'un.

I admit that I'd be curious to see what you regard as hot boys/men. And I liked the last post, too.

Not only do I get HBO, I get every single cable station offered --- free. The man works for the cable company. It's one of the few perks.

Different? Sure, but that hardly makes my approval any less significant. I also happen to be a harsh critic.

Steph - Thank you. A surprise is good every now and then, eh?

Goldie - Leave it to you to make me have to stop and think about a smartass remark I have made. Warning: I may take you up on the challenge.

Theresa - Why do I feel chastised and approved of at the same time?

Don't let GD fool you. She only thinks we respond to midget porn. The truth is that we're all mocking her outlandish obsession.

And yikes on the hot, hot love bit. And me without my galoshes.

D'Cat - I believe everything. And I can't control my heart.

You can put the beefcake up if you're into that sort of thing. How 'bout a pic of me in assless chaps holding gardenias?

Adreeyin - Please forward that shot to me forthwith. The world needs you, man.

Yeah, unless it has a knife and wants to slash your throat! Then it's bad.

L - I would have thought so, too, until I read the next comment, from Steph.

Steph - YIKES! Does somebody need a hug, or some counseling?

naw, I'm cool.

OK, Steph, but you let us know.

I have a fear that Blogger will shut down and it will all be gone, too. I don't print any of my stuff anymore. I guess I'll order one of those things that puts your posts into books or something before it's too late.

Laurie - Isn't there some way to back up your blog to your local hard drive? I haven't checked, but I hope there is. My writings are so important...
