“Why should I?”, you ask.
And you may have a point there. Spring is still not fully sprung; it is in fact still a bit of spring chicken. Living (or staying, if Indian) in the Golden Horseshoe, aka Costa Occidental del Lago Ontario, you would be hard pressed to find visible or sensual signs of spring. (There you go, Mr Domingo Gomes – alliterations for you. Now give me the marks I deserve!)
Hower, as my Cost Accounting and Taxation professor used to say, the spring solstice is officially past us now and so we must ask ourselves a few searching questions. Here we go.
1. Where is it? What? That’s not quite what is meant by “searching question”? Oh ok, then, let’s start over. First we must clear up one thing. Do we restart the numbering or should the next question be numbered 2? It’s what is known, I believe, as a point of disorder… Since I’m writing this and you’re not, I get to decide.
2. Why is it that +4c in spring is so much warmer than +4c in late September? Riddle me ree that one. The correct answer obviously has to do with sensory anticipation. (There isn’t any such thing, as far as I know, I’m just typing stream of consciousness stuff. I don’t really have a plan for this post…)
3. Why do readers of this blog, read and then melt away without a trace? The blog doesn’t bite, each comment is acknowledged and appropriately too. Please, if you’re one of the 100 people who read this and disappear without a comment, it is spring, a Time for New Beginnings. Actually, this is probably a better time to make resolutions than the first of January. Resolve that from now on you will not only read but leave comments.
4. We come now to a matter of some import, finally. LeggieLefty feels that he does not belong here and his Innovative Solutions for the Problems that Face the Great Game of Cricket are being lost amongst the rest of the blog. He has proposed that he move himself out of here and onto his own dedicated blog.
What do you folks think? Should LeggieLefty go away and write his own creekit blog? Data from your responses will be analysed (analyzed, if American) at the end of 7 days from the date of this post and a final decision will be communicated to you on this blog. So let us know, please, else I shall just have to take an ecjucootiu decision.
5. And, ladies, gentlemen and others, here comes the REAL QUESTION: What do we write about next? I have received some suggestions and there are some stories I’ve been threatening to write for a while. Here are the options
- No ID? No Problem ( been promised many times, started 3 times and yet you have not seen it)
- Prohibition (triggered by a request for a post on whisky by the lovely Viveka)
- Yeast is Yeast and Waste is Waste ( I have no idea what this is about, but it sounds great, doesn’t it?)
- CLR ( you had to be there… may not be as funny written down so I’ll have to pad it fulsomely)
- The Old and the Blissful – A Soap Opera ( this promises to be a fun and interactive activity. For ages 18 and up. Triggered by a healthy discussion amongst some wonderfully imaginative people)
- The Nose Knows ( a highly topical post given the season, the Season of Allergies)
Let us to know!
