I was wandering randomly around the blog sites today to see if there was someone I could really connect with. I hit the arrow at the top right-hand side of my screen and it sends me off to a new page, a new person’s or organization’s blog. Sometimes, not often, I get lucky and find a gem! But more often than not I know within a few sentences it’s not a good fit for me.
Here are a few examples of sentences I’ve read on random blog sites that told me I need read no further: (Please bear in mind that this is about me finding something or someone I fit with. It is not intended as criticism of the content or the writer! I laugh just the same.)
Sometimes I have NO IDEA what the meaning behind the words is:
The “proposed solution is to explicitly implement everything in a program, preferably a functional program, so that the fuzziness is exorcised.”
“14.Now you combine a O berry with the hot sauce and the puffle goes red and goes hyper and makes a hole through the snow”
Then there are those sentences which just boggle the mind. I’m sure the author knows what they’re trying to say but my brain seizes up when I read this:
I had a girlfriend then, who wasn’t over her ex-girlfriend for 5 years. When my girlfriend then learned that her ex-girlfriend is now my friend’s girlfriend, she couldn’t accept it.
Then there’s the WTF entry:
A car door slammed behind him. In the white noise deafness of that grey downpour, the engine roared to life like nothing else. It shuddered and the car rumbled down along the pure-black, down avenues, down boulevards, like nothing else in the discomfort of that wilderness.
The rain dropped like hen’s eggs from windows, like brass or bullets in the morning.
We have the drunken blog entry which I personally get a kick out of:
“Lov am so fuckin drunk but omg I have llots of stoeies to tell you lol my life’s full of crazy hookups. hahah okay so tmw afternoonl, i will wirte a real entry. full of good stuff enjoy!! even if muscles can;t decide right now..desn;’t stop me from ahvin ood tiems!! lol tell ou soon!!!
I LOVED this one: ( I still giggle every time I read it!)
“I was watching inconvenient truth the other day and theres the bit where it shows the sea level rising really high and flooding most of the world. Well i live near the sea, and don’t want to drown, so i got to thinking. Maybe if we lower the sea level a bit, when the water level rises then it won’t rise high enough to flood.
Anyway, heres the plan. Everyone who can should take a bucket of sea water and pour it down the sink. If lots of people put the effort in, we could lower the sea level substantially and create a better world for our children to live.”
And this one; the author ends with a quote which completely disputes her (il)logic:
“I enjoy all the frills of being a woman. I mostly enjoy the poofy dresses, wearing flowers in my hair, being given a boys oversized jacket when I get cold and getting to go first in line for carrot cake. ☺ But, mostly the thing I love about being a woman is knowing that I deserve respect simply because I exist.”
Is not general incivility the very essence of love?
– Jane Austen
