A recent IM conversation between myself and my friend Nels…

me: ok i need help

i don’t do any work

Nels: stop blogging

me: should i cut off my hands?

Nels: stop!!!

me: ooh i need to blog about this…

And another conversation with my friend Bob —

Bob:  wouldn’t you say that blogging is similar to free-writing?
me:  yes

which I do anyways
so why stop now?
me: hmmm… why does anyone need a how to on freewriting?
Bob:  anyways, can’t hurt
me: true dat.
