It’s been over a week since I’ve pondered, ranted or observed anything here–my lack of contribution makes me feel as though something has been amiss but I haven’t been inspired or inspiring lately so the poor blog has been neglected…
Not to say I haven’t been checking in, I’ve been keeping up with those whom I enjoy following–most of them are people who make me laugh or who have physically moved away but stay close with postings about their adventures.
A couple of weeks ago, a good blog friend gave me a HUGE boost by mentioning me on his WP site The Idiot Speaketh.
He refers to himself as The Idiot but I assure you he is anything but that. His entries are hilarious. He has an unbelievably slanted view of life which makes his observations of the most jaw-droppingly boring topics (cats, picking up his kid at school, visiting his mother in the hospital, shopping at Kohls) from a perspective that is either brilliantly comic or quite simply insane. I haven’t figured it out yet but from the occasional feedback he records from his infinitely patient wife, I’m leaning a bit toward insanity.
Reading about what the Idiot Speaketh has rumbling about in his head has been a terrific boost in my day, especially in the mornings before I head out to that soul crushing, dream destroying destination known as Work.
I have to say it was very flattering to be portrayed as Brooke Shields instead of Betty White when he featured me on his blog. I admit, my tribute is not nearly as flattering but life is a full circle. Writing about Men’s Underwear is the topic that caught the Idiot’s attention on my blog, so how serendipitous that he’s the exact person I thought of when I saw this ad for mens underwear???
This IS THE IDIOT. I am convinced that someone at Duluth Trading Post has read his writing and thus inspired, created the ad campaign for Buck Naked Underwear.
I don’t think I will ever be done writing about mens underwear. Here’s to you, Idiot. Keep up the great work. Cheers!
