The title of this post is nearly longer than the actual post itself. When my friend Clark Brooks asked me to guest blog for him earlier this month I thought there was no possible way I could possibly fill in for him. Clark is unique in his writing style. That is intended as a form of flattery. His ability to take what one might consider a mundane observation and turn it into an entire blog entry leaves me awe stricken. Without a thought of what I'd write about, I sat here at my eight or more year old Dell computer handed down to me by the sister of a good friend when she got all fancy shmancy by upgrading to a Mac. What transpired is pure gold. It's as if the spirit of F. Scott Fitzgerald overcame me and my deep seated mental issues became my muse. Please, go to Clark's blog, aptly titled, Ridiculously Inconsistent Trickle of Consciousness and read my entry. But do not stop there. Peruse his other mindless ... err, well thought out rambl... err, read his stuff. I promise you'll be entertained.
