Sleep On It

It's a method I've used many times to test my decision-making prowess, because the light of another day provides an amazingly fresh perspective.

It's the same with blogging. Many times I've looked at the stuff I wrote yesterday, last month, last year... and wanted to completely delete my blog and start over.

I won't actually do that, but I will be forced to read some of my old stuff as I'm following the instructions of Spinning Girl:


1. Delve into your blog archive.
2. Find your 23rd post.
3. Find the fifth sentence.
4. Post the text of the sentence in your blog along with these instructions.

My results:

"So by now you know, for me it's not the design, style or logo. But how it peels."

The entry it refers to.

I think it's funny how a sentence standing by itself can seem so wierd when it made so much sense with all the other sentences surrounding it.

Nuts. Now I have this driving urge to go back into all your damned archives and see what all I've missed. And to think I was going to scrub out the tub and toilet today - they'll just have to wait.

[off now to look up "assiduousness" - sure I've heard it, seen it, and can imagine its meaning from your sentence usage, but I won't allow myself to use the damn thing till I've read the definition. So how's Gary?]

I don't need to see the entire entry. This one sentence, with all its wit and wisdom, will carry me for a long time. I will look for it it Bartlett's next edition.

I went back into my archives and looked at 23rd post, 5th sentence:

"And the Drying of the Cement!"

Fraught with meaning, I'd say. Except it's not a whole sentence. Does this count?
