The Urge to Purge
All of a sudden I'm stifled here. So much I want to post about, but in the back of my head I wonder, "What if someone is lurking here and is just waiting for the moment to grind my bones in a limb shredder?" You're thinking, "Outlandish, Mad. No one even reads your blog let alone has stalking tendences." But just what if a looney drops randomly into this blog one night--say some twisted knitter who gets directed here by typing in, say, "purl two"-- puts a few of my "puzzle pieces" together, buys a plane ticket,dons a trench coat, and turns me into a CSI statistic? IT COULD HAPPEN! I'd feel awfully sheepish with all my pieces blowing in the wind and wish I'd been more discrete. Time to go private, so I can show journalistic integrity? Time to batten down the hatches and draw the shades? Any opinions on this? In other news--Paco was asked to head an educational task force of sorts in our school district. This necessitates attendance at the board meetings/circuses, and last night he was at the computer until nearly 2 A.M. carrying on "committee business." According to eyewitness accounts today at lunch he was "impressive and did a great Richard Nixon imitation!" I'm hoping to get the lowdown on that at dinner. I just held a three week old cocker spaniel puppy at a home visit earlier tonight. His eyes were open and he cuddled right in and went to sleep. Ohhh... It was so cold this morning that I did one of those backward-facing-way-from-the-wind walks that we did as kids. See! Every part of me wants to write about stuff on this blog, but I daresn't!!! Any ideas?
