I have been wanting to try a blog, but I haven't wanted to ruin either a blog or a subject's first impression due to my lack of experience as a blogger. However, as a self proclaimed babbler of "nothing", I feel not only inclined, but obligated to share nothing with you. I couldn't help but snicker a bit when contemplating adding a picture of this...lol
I decided this can be an ongoing deluge of spattering, of my personal reflections for things I have noticed, that maybe you didn't or those that you did, but that you wouldn't buy for dollar because you only had $0.98 left...
I have often felt the need to give my opinion in open forum, but have noticed my far share of hecklers. I consider a myriad of reasons for their negative feedback. Often puzzled by their seemingly endless entertainment by "nothing" they share in their posts to one another, while snubbing my eloquent works, I have come to the conclusion that perhaps I too somehow needed to adopt this use of nothing, in order to be more entertaining.
While exploring what could possibly be endlessly entertaining, I thought of all of the things that I always seemed to be entertained by, no matter how often or when I was partaking of it. I thought of Seinfeld, a tv sitcom, said to be about nothing also. I said to myself, I wonder how they came up with that idea.
I envisioned Jerry, George and Elaine sitting around discussing briefly what they should make their sitcom about. So Jerry posed the question, "what could we talk about and show on our show that would always be entertaining" ? George, being his pragmatic, analytical self replied, "what could possibly be endlessly entertaining" ? "Nothing, everybody gets bored with something eventually". Elaine says, "yeah I sure do, as she rolls her eyes and turns head up".
About that time Jerry says, "yeah, wait a minute, that's a great idea". "What could get old about nothing" ? "Nothing is the same today as is was yesterday". "People are used to that and no one ever complains".
About that time Kramer barges in and says, " damn I'm late", "what did I miss" ? George says, " ah don't worry, it's "nothing". Kramer replies insistently, of guilt, "no, I want to know what I missed". " So what were you discussing" ? Jerry repies, "we were talking about nothing ". Kramer gets agitated and insisted, "hey just because I am late, doesn't mean you have to keep it from me". "You said you were talking about nothing", I'd keep nothing from you, why are you doing it me " ? ... lol
While sharing my secluded joke, I realized, I needed to live by a new way of thinking. I came up with a new personal motto... Nothing is indefinitely entertaining...so therefore I will always talk about nothing.
I thought, what a better way to talk about nothing, than in a blog about nothing ? I realize the idea isn't completely original, but it does seem somewhat slow to catch on. Therefore I still feel like an innovator and that I need to share nothing with everyone.
I am sure when someone tries to convince someone else about the novelties of nothing, confusion often sets in. Oh well... I 'll have to admit, though I understood the concept initially, it still took me a while to see the broader applications of nothing, because I had always devoted my attention to something else.
So, if you have read this and it makes no damn sense at all, don't worry, your not alone. While wrapping my mind around trying to express the idea that I find nothing perplexing, it doesn't seem well received either.
On the other hand, if I told you I understand nothing, you would either agree I am a schmuck or think I was being overly modest. This all goes to show not only how difficult it can be to clearly see nothing and be sure about it, but also make sure that you know someone else does too.
So now in hindsight, I have to give everyone a pass who ever questioned my veiw ? How could they have been sure if I could clearly see nothing, if they couldn't clearly prove to me they could ?
