It worked!

Now don’t go feeling “used” on me, please.

Yesterday, when I wrote my “C” post, I started out to use as many words beginning with “C” as possible. I was having a lot of fun with different combinations, including using misspellings (words that really started with “K,” and “CH” words that, though spelled correctly, didn’t sound like “C.”)

Then I began to think of some of my regular readers and commenters (especially YOU, Pointmeister—and sure enough you came through for me!) who would undoubtedly do a better job at it than I would. Plus I thought it would be fun for you to do it. And you might try to out-do each other!

So I thought, “OK, I’ll just sprinkle in a few “C” words here and there, then emphasize them so it’s not TOO subtle, and I’ll bet I get comments back that are completely “C” words, or nearly so.


A lot of blogs I’ve browsed through are kinda “blah.” You’ve all seen them too. But when a blogger is consistently pretty creative and clever I keep coming back to his/her site. I guess that’s why my regular blogroll is full of writers and artists and other smart people.

So if you’re reading this, you’re obviously smart. So feel good about yourself. (That’s an order.)

In fact, my readers are SO creative that TWO (not one, but TWO) of them have dogs who write their own blogs. If you don’t know who they are, you’ll just have to go down my list and check out what you find.

Oh, as for RobotJam’s concern that I might be part of the “C,” and that my blogroll (many of YOU) are also part of it... Well, as most of you know I’ve only been blogging about this “C” phenomenon for a little over a year, but the activity I describe has been going on for decades. Maybe centuries!

(Besides, I think RobotJam may be just a little unbalanced at the moment. If you disagree, check out his post of today concerning left handed burglars and polar bears. Yes, you read that correctly. Yes, that’s why I wonder about him.)

You are right. It was fun and challenging. I tried to post the whole comments with only "C", but I had to miss a couple to maintain actual senteneces.

You're right, we're all pawns in an evil "C". And Robotjam is the leader. ( I mean, come on, it's as plain as the Hewlett Packard on your desk...his username means "broken machine"). He's just acting paranoid to throw us off.

LOL at Karyn.

It was definitely a fun post and I loved the responses from your blogger fans.

LOL Karyn!

'C' has buggered off from our house of late. Let's hope it stays that way...

"Robotjam is the leader" !

What so I've been promoted ?

Should I ask for a payrise ?

Its all coming back to me now, I went to the company which implants memories as I couldn't afford a real holiday. Then I found my wife was an actor, I was really on mars and my boss was selling the people of mars air...
