So, I have been doing some thinking about this blog lately.

Now, I'm true to all the blogging cliches: "I blog for me" and all that jazz, but let's be honest, I like people to read the damn thing, too. Not that I'm going to change everything I do in order for people to read it, and honestly, I don't know that I plan to change anything, but I am a little bit curious:

Why do you come here ? I know this is comment whoring and all that, but I am truly curious about what brings people here. And how many people, exactly, does it bring here ? Love ? Obligation? Curiosity ? Community service ?

I know that there are a couple of people who actually play the lyric and quote quizzes because they occasionally guess. Do people play who don't know the answers or don't want to guess?

Does anyone watch the videos on Saturdays ?

Does Meet My Ties come across as absurd as I want it to be ? I think that one may have been a misfire. But fear not, it's only got a few more weeks. Then perhaps we'll do socks...or boxers!

Any of the fiction grab you ? The true stories ?

Do you like me ? Do you really like me ??

I read your blog for the same reason I read most other blogs. Because it is interesting. Otherwise I wouldn't read it. See?

PS - I never comment on the Meet My Ties series, but I always find it amusing. Especially since I used to collect funky ties when I had to wear them everyday. I've thrown most of them out. Now I think I have 5 or 6 ties left in my closet. And it has to be a funeral or a wedding before I will put one on.

I read your blog because I love your sense of humor. I like both the straight-up absurd posts and hearing about how you all are doing in FLA. The contests are part of my weekly routine now, so if you discontinued them I'd never remember which day is which.

Earl- Thank you sir. we read each other's blogs for the same reason.

jaime_d- Why thanks.Have no fear, I actually enjoy coming up with the quotes and lyrics for the quizzes. They will hang around awhile.

I read your blog because it's a lot easier than constantly emailing you and asking what you're thinking about. In the same vein, I like all the stuff you post because it's all from the brain of you and therefore interesting from, at least, an anthropological standpoint, plus is good fodder for the Paticus exposé I'm writing.

Julie-I'm not sure whether to be flattered or terrified. :)
