Well here’s something I haven’t done in a while: posted on what is commonly referred to as a “weblog” or “blog”. Webster’s Dictonary (no, really) defines a blog as, “a Web site that contains an online personal journal with reflections, comments, and often hyperlinks provided by the writer”

Why, that’s what this thing has been for some 7 years! I’ll be darned.

REFLECTION: Where does the phrase, “Well, I’ll be darned!” come from anyway? Webster has a definition for darn, too, “to mend with interlacing stitches”; which, of course, is commonly used when referring to mending socks. What that has to do with me as a person, I have no idea. Does “I’ll be darned!” mean the same as, “I’ll be mended with interlacing stitches!”? Those surgeons were quite the butchers back then.

COMMENT: Does anyone else know what a darning ball is? My mom has one that I remember actually using from time to time. Right up to, in fact, the moment old socks became more useful as something to apply car wax to my Dad’s old 1975 VW Rabbit. The one he had to actually push into the dealer’s lot when he was trading it in. And to think I wanted that car with a fervent passion.

Wait, did I just make a blog-post?
