History of Blogging and a New One

Durango somehow convinced me to start this little escapade into pain and suffering. And after almost 2 years, I continue to do so (suffer pain).

In honor of Durango's inspiration I began a search of other misplaced Washingtonians (since Durango is always singing dirges about his lost homestead).

I've decided to add "there's sand in my latte" to my list of blogs to try and keep up with. Wish me luck. I know they don't post as much as Durango, but every little bit helps.

I actually discovered this site from Ghost and I've been silently reading the stories and viewing the pictures for a while now. Sometimes with a bit of envy.

My BFF just escaped Washington to go live in India. There must be something in the air up there. Washingtonians fleeing to Texas, Dubai and India. I'll have to get to the bottom of it.


  1. I have no recollection of convincing you to start your little escapade into pain and suffering. Are you sure this isn't one of your alcohol fueled false memories?

    I do vaguely recollect being appalled to see you were blogging on that awful MySpace abomination. I may have suggested you start a real blog. But, I can't imagine I put much energy into convincing you to do so.

    As for Washingtonians being sent to foreign lands, like Texas, it's a Federal program that started back in the 60s. Washingtonians are selected and then sent to places needing help. We insinuate ourselves into the community and then rabblerouse.

    My Texas assignment is nearing its end.

  2. It was more of an indirect convincing magnified by the gullibility of my tiny brain.

  3. Gar,
    The Huffington Post doesn't post as much as Durango.
    Just thought I would point that out.

  4. Gar---
    What, or who, is this Huffington Post thing that the Whited Guy is saying I post more than? I am very perplexed.

  5. D, I believe there was a bit of sarcasm there. Although you post a lot of material, Huffington has you beat. Not by much though.
