I dodge a word-bullet

I briefly considered writing a meaningless blog entry that says nothing.

Then decided no, that's too easy; that's also distracting, and possibly obscuring. I want people to know what I mean. (And as Robert Heinlein wrote in Stranger in a Strange Land, "Obscurity is the refuge of incompetence.")

I could sound fake-profound — oo! Faux-profound! — but, again, too easy:

The madcap maudlin man moves much
Minus many miles of mal-odored macadam
Manifesting mucho mutations, mayhap
Midway-moshed maledictions.

See? Off the top of my head, and meaningless...but it seems profound. (Like when I misheard a line in Cheap Trick's "The Flame" not as the actual lyric, "You were the first, you'll be the last," but as "You were the first to be the last." DOESN'T THAT SOUND MEANINGFUL AND EPIC.)

Not how I want to use my writing skills. In case you hadn't guessed.

Anyway. I hope your weekend goes well.
