I really don't feel like I've been blogging as much as normal which is ironic ... because I'm currently writing a new blog series all about ... blogging more often ...
Ahhh ... the blogging gods are clearly having kicks at my expense right now!
However, I am determined to keep up with the 'Simply A Moment' meme created by my wonderful blogging friend Alexa in which she encourages us to, once a month, record in detail, a moment which could otherwise have passed by without comment.
To learn more you can read Alexa's tips on how to record your own moments and view her most recent Simply A Moment post here. If you do join in there's a link box there for you to add your post.
And now here's mine ...
What? None? As in 'none'?
Date: Friday 15th March 2013
Time: around 9:50am
Location: at home, at my work desk, eating porridge + blueberries with a cup of tea
None? As in 'nothing'? At all?
How can I have had no - zero - emails overnight?
I press the send/receive button once again because, let's face it, there must be some mistake. Surely?
But the word 'complete' appears and no new messages emerge. So that's that cleared up then. No mistake.
I must admit though, it does make a welcome change from the dozens of SPAM blog comments which have been arriving, unrelentingly, overnight for the last few months ... all labelled 'Anonymous' and laying in wait for me with their mix of bizarre non-sequiturs, mangled English, random links and obscene phrases.
[If nothing else the latter kind have taught me that even when I can't identify the language the message is written in ... there are certain words which are recognisable just the same.]
I begin to wonder if moving my SPAM filter settings up to 'High' is beginning to work then ... which reminds me ...
... I'd better go check the SPAM folder to make sure there aren't any decent messagestrapped in there rubbing shoulders with the indecent.
No. No one's in there. Or, no one who shouldn't be. Just a lot of Anonymous-es and so I hit the wonderfully titled 'Delete Forever' button on them all.
'Delete Forever': a splendidly vehement sentiment. Pressing it feels like a small act of vengeance.
The laptop has been making a constant humming sound since I turned it on today. A sound like it's constantly, incessantly, processing something.
Outside the wind blows against the window in much the same way.
Behind me the radio is distracting more than entertaining.
It's time I started working. But first ...
... a glance to see if anything new has landed in my inbox ...
Thanks for taking a moment to share in mine, and don't forget to swing by Alexa's for links to more.
See you soon.
