The following statements are all true:
- Ordinarily, I dwell on my blog entries. What will I write about? What do I have to say? Will it be funny? Will it be topical? Will I use more em-dashes than are allowed by law? Usually, I write them at night, when I have time to write.
- Last night, I intended to write a clever little piece for Cyclingnews, after which I would write a clever blog entry for today. However, the clever little Cyclingnews piece turned out to be, um, longish. It was well past midnight before I finished it.
- I figured I would write my clever blog entry for today during lunch. And yes — oh, yes — it is a clever blog entry. Oh so clever.
- I just started a new job (same company, though), and was invited to lunch with some of my coworkers today. Barbecued wild boar was on the menu (at Microsoft, we often eat wild boar for lunch); how could I say no?
- OK, toward the end of that last bullet point I stopped telling the truth. It’s a disease, really.
- I have a few minutes right now. I could write my clever blog entry — the one I’ve been thinking of writing since last night — right now.
- If you say the word "blog" five times in a row, you will inevitably be struck by the oddness of the word.
- It is a beautiful, mild day. I could go on a ride right now. Instead of writing a clever blog entry.
- It occurs to me that a bullet list of truths that lead up to an excuse for why I want to go on a ride instead of type makes for a very, very clever blog entry. Maybe even more clever than my original blog entry idea.
