A year ago, I was just screwing around, and I decided to record a few thoughts on a Mass I had attended in rural Kansas. I had no idea, and no intention, of making 357 posts (an average of almost one a day?), or of filling 434 printed pages with mindless rant over the course of the year. But that's what I've done.
Four hundred thirty-four printed pages? Can you imagine? That doesn't even include comment box chatter! What could I have accomplished if I'd channelled that energy into something meaningful? I'm not saying that I could have written the next Philothea or something like Dawson's The Making of Europe, but c'mon, Curmudgie, what are you doing with your life?
And while I'm at it, for the last few months, over a hundred people a day have been visiting this blog. Why? To count my typos? I have to ask, "What are YOU doing with YOUR life?"
Nothing personal, of course. Anyways, I thought I'd share an interesting error message which I received, as I was pasting my latest blog entries into an MS Word document, which I keep as a separate archive (I'm not sure why; I just do) The message was as follows:
There are too many typographical and grammatical errors in Blog Archive.doc to continue displaying them. Too see these errors, select Tools, Spelling and Grammar.
How appropriate, huh?
Well, I'm this far along, so I probably owe myself a little one year retrospective--you know, a clipshow. But I'm too close to the blog (and too lazy) to do it myself. Does anybody have any suggestions for the "Best Post"; the "Worst Post"; the "Best Church Tour"; the "Post with the Most Egregious Typographical Errors?"
