    nine minutes with tony 

    talked with a lovely beauty contestant on the phone yesterday as i was speeding along a freeway and we were discussing what else blogging and she was saying how its difficult for her to write every day.

    i told her what i tell everyone, you just have to get it into your daily ritual. im sure if excercise could get into my daily ritual my six pack abs would return and so would the taps of the teens on my window pane.

    but it seems to me that blogging should be even easier than runnign or weight lifting because you can do it from the friendly confines of your desk at home or at work or even via your phone if youre that technologicially advanced. but still one should be able to find 10 or in this case 8 minutes to write something about their day.

    for example yesterday i was talking to a beautiful beauty queen about how she has a hard time finding men of like interests, so i suggested that she create a Group in Facebook for bloggers in her state (she lives in a small state). And even if the dudes who show up are horrible bloggers and have boring blogs, who cares, youre there to meet and drink and hang out and commiserate. and later, makeout.

    seems to me that these days with facebook and twitter and blogs and IM and all these other free and easy ways to connect, people STILL arent connecting the way youd expect. hotties are still single and the men dont know how to find them.

    the here i am here i am beacon still cant figure out a way to do more than get the losers dates and the hos diseases.

    which is why i keep hammering home blogging.

    as old and as fugly and as poorly dressed as i am, i have never been less lonely than with this silly url. the phone rings, the emails flow, the comments trickle, but the women line up. maybe not like they did when this blog was actually good, but the here i am s-o-s seems to be working on the busblog fairly well and it cost pretty much nothing while only takes minutes a day.

    8 minutes, in this example.
