Too many blogs


Camy

365 views

It's taken me an age to decide to blog here. Dunno why I am really, except secretly I like a lot of the people who hang here, more than a lot of people who hang elsewhere I blog. No names, no packdrill. Which is a very silly cliche.

I'm trying to be more positive. I spend a lot of time bemoaning my lot, and tend to forget that I'm really quite well to do compared with others, even though I only have three pairs of jeans in comparison to some who possess more. Then Jeans do not maketh the man. Broadband speed maketh the man these days. That and how big your laptop is. Under those rules I'm not a man at all as I live too far away to get fast DSL and don't have a laptop. It's sad. Very sad.

Why is it that it's always greener elsewhere?

Blog, blog, blog. I think that's enough for now. Oh. No. News. That's what blogs are for - on occasion. So: I've up-loaded six spoken pieces of 'poetry'. Which can be found here should you be so inclined. Performing is not easy, as you'll probably hear. Singing is much easier than speaking.

Finally (clears throat nervously), on this inaugural occasion I must thank the Dude. After all, it's only polite. AD rocks, as do those who reside here.

I first thought hell would freeze over before that nasty EMU actually began a blog of its own. But alas, it seems that hell has not only froze over, but has decided that it really does rain frogs. Or is that rain pigs? I'm not sure, but Camy has begun a blog of his own. Which means, I, Jason R. should stop posting as of now. How can I, a mere human, ever compete with an EMU. The world is now doomed. And we are about to find out more details than anyone ever should find out about EMU's. God help us all. *makes the sign of the cross* :icon6: Jason R.

Wow. And here I thought that the size of the laptop was not intrinsically important, but that it was only used to gauge the size of what it was covering in the lap itself. Nudge, nudge, wink, wink, say no more. :icon6: I guess your lack of a laptop is indeed of major concern Camy.Welcome to the blogging world Camy. I don't much use it for news of myself, but more as a semi-private whine location. You know: the things you don't want to say in the open forums, but you want to get off you chest, cry and rant about, and feel generally better. If you feel that it's always greener somewhere else, this is one place you can mope and wail, and of course you might also think about buying some rose coloured glasses so that even if somewhere IS greener, it doesn't look to be that way. :hiya:

Yay! It's working. I had trouble posting a comment earlier.I don't remember what I was going to comment about except to welcome you Camy to this blogging world.Trab and Jason seem to have used up all the best lines anyway. like Trab I use my blog to rant and rave. I try to do it with as much incoherence as possible, with dignity of course. oh dear did I just step into an Emu egg?

WTF "no names, no packdrill"I've never, ever heard that in my life. A Google on it proved worthless. 'splain it to me :)I can see it means you're not naming names, but WTF does it mean and what is the origin?

Wow! What a lot of comments. Me, most chuffed. Thanke chaps. Or, more personally: thanks Jason, Trab, Des, and Wibbeeeeeeeee. You have now become my inaugural commentators (or should that be commenters? Hmm.) If I win huge, vast, otherworldly sums on the lottery it'll mean a biannual party on my yacht in the Caribbean. If I don't, it won't. :hiya:

I learnt it from my dad, so he's to blame ... but then aren't all dads?Here's a concise explanation fromhttp://www.worldwidewords.org/qa/qa-non3.htmThe full expression no names, no pack drill seems to have been of First World War origin, but has survived the punishment itself. It means that if nobody is named as being responsible, then nobody can be punished, the point being that in some situation or other it?s wisest not to name the person being discussed.'splanation enough? :icon6:

Camy,I see your signature line now states,"An Emu of little brain"You shouldn't put yourself down like that; that's our job. :hiya::hiya: Besides I would have thought the correct phrase was, "A brainy little Emu." :icon6:

Ah, you must remember that compared to most hoomanse Emu's have vast brains. Through manipulation of space-time we are able to appear feathered and dorky, but actually we look more like twelve legged Hippos.
