A New Jersey state of mind

Tuesday, June 12, 2012


There's been a distraction of sorts lately that's been preventing
me from spending any meaningful time doing what I've come to
really enjoy:  blogging.  It involves engaging my brain and tapping 
my experience and creative juices in order to justify a paycheck 
that I am once again depositing on Fridays.  This requirement 
severely reduces the countless free hours to which I had become 
quite accustomed. I log on much less frequently these days, and 
often feel as if the blogosphere is passing me by.  I know this 
happens to most folks at some point in their blogging lives, 
and I'd rather get this out of the way now and look forward to a 
more prolific presence in the near future.  
Presently, I survive vicariously through my friends' posts.
Luckily, they all continue to provide fresh, original content for me
to pore over at the end of the night, while eating my re-heated 
slices of Buffalo-Chicken pizza and garlic knots.  
This could certainly be the death of me.  I must be strong.


  1. Blogging is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.

  2. Just be sure you don't eat so many of those re-heated slices of Buffalo-Chicken pizza and garlic knots that you can't squeeze under the boom should you ever get out again on one of those Scows on the weekend...

  3. Buffalo-Chicken pizza is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans.

  4. We learn the rope of life by untying its garlic knots.

  5. Some folks can look so busy doin' nothing that they seem indispensable.

  6. Where do the spaghetti and meatballs come in? Looks fabulous!

    Now I'm tied up in garlic knots.

    3. MFC: I can't take credit for that photo. But I must say, you're an easy subject when it comes to pleasin' folks.

    4. ... and some vino rosso to wash it down!
