I realized that I needed some change in my life...so I changed my blog template. Crazy, I know. That's just how incredibly exciting life is right now. One cool thing about changing the template is that I looked back at some old posts and old comments. I had forgotten how much fun I used to have sitting up late and blogging.
This was from 10/06/2005:
"In the last couple of days, I have discovered one pretend thing I would be excellent at and one pretend thing for which I have no aptitude. And no, I wasn't smoking dope...
I would be an excellent announcer of pretend Formula One, or Indy Car, races. I tried it and I rocked. That doesn't even capture how great at it I was - I was truly awesome. Mostly, I believe my forte in the field of pretend car race announcing would be calling classic pretend races, especially those in which Emerson Fitapaldi plays a prominent role. What can I say? We all have our gifts.
That said, I would suck at narrating pretend science fiction movies. I have no talent for it. Zero. Maybe even less than zero. This unfortunately also applies to the fantasy genre. If I didn't have my pretend race announcing skills to fall back on, I would probably cry.
These are the things you can learn about yourself in the middle of the night."
Anyway, it reminded me that I used to have more humour in my life and that drew more people to me. It's probably not the world that has changed, but rather it's me that's changed and I just never really noticed it happening.
Found an excellent little story by Alan Coren where Pooh Bear gets a Hemingway makeover. It's a quick and fun little read indeed.
