Just some quick notes concerning this blog...
Ha (and, further unto that) Ha.
Some of you may have been wondering about the dispensation of the 10 (crummy) CDs, the prize from the Celtics contest. Dave, the actual winner, proved that he has a brain when he refused to accept the prize. I offered the 10 (crummy) CDs to the runner-up, Burning Sky, and he showed a startling lack of intelligence, saying he'd take them. They're shipping to him even as I write this. If you find yourself in New Jersey someday, and you hear a whole bunch of crummy music, chances are it will be his place you're near. Or possibly Jon Bon Jovi's.
Speaking of crummy music, I would have liked to have added actual recordings of Live Wire cum Powerline in the body of yesterday's piece, but I truly have no idea how to put music into a blog entry. If you are a fellow Blogger user - or a blogger who used to use Blogger - and you have the know-how on the way to include music in a post, please give me simple (yet as detailed as possible, since I'm much dumber than I sometimes make myself out to be here) instructions on how to do so. I'd truly appreciate it, maybe enough to promise that you will never receive a shipment of 10 (crummy) CDs from me.
The following will mean nothing to anyone except one particular reader, and maybe not even her: Hello, Miriam! I believe it was Jesus who said, "Ask and ye shall receive." Of course, he probably didn't mean, "Ask Jack Atton whether it was him I was writing about and then Jack will relay the story to me and ye, Miriam, shall receive mention in a stupid blog", but that's only because the internet hadn't been invented then. Even if it had, Judas probably would have been the only one interested.
Oh, just to set everyone's mind at ease, I'll tell you that there will be no more blogs about the Celtics until at least October. That is, so long as I find enough other stuff to write about. And you know me. I can get 1,500 words out of finding a rock in my shoe, so you shouldn't have too much to worry about.
Anything else? No, nothing comes immediately to mind. Of course, that's always the case with me, so no big surprise. As soon as I publish this, I'll think of 7 or 8 other things I should have mentioned. By the time I get around to writing about them, you'll be safe at some other blog far, far away.
By the way, if this were a football blog, the title could have been "Loosening Up My Tight Ends." It's not, though, so it isn't.
Soon, with more better stuff, Miriam.
