1594. I feel an interactive page coming on

Hi. My name is Sinead and the other day I felt like getting all interactive on my blog. Lots of people do. They get all interactive and everyone takes part and it is fun. So I thought why not me too? It also attracts new faces to the blog. So this is what I done.

Write a poem no longer than 14 lines and 54 words including the words haversack, hurdy-gurdy, enthralling, table, and Rumpelstiltskin. The posting was accompanied by a picture of an Australian short-beaked echidna for inspiration because they’re cute and lay only one egg every year. So they would be no good keeping instead of chickens!!!!

Well, no one responded, not even my friend Debbie, so I asked my friend Debbie if she had any thoughts as to why, and she said “Nah she didn’t”. She should know because she has an interactive page on her blog and lots of people post pictures of themselves on it. But I don’t want to do the same because it will look as if I never had an original thought in my life. Anyway I never posted a picture of myself on my friend Debbie’s blog because my parents probably read it.

I also asked my biology teacher about it, and all he said was “Not another, Shirley” and I said my name wasn’t Shirley. So he wasn’t worth asking. He’s like that, Mr Thompson, he puts everyone down. But I’m not going to let it beat me so I’m going to put up another challenge and let’s hope this time a lot of people find it attractive enough to enter and give it likes.

My friend Debbie just asked me if I wanted to go down to the town mall, so I said yes, so I’ll come back to this later maybe.

Hi. This is me later. I’ve changed my mind, and now I’m creating a new blog on fashion. I’m only going to have pictures of me wearing my own stuff. Let’s hope it attracts lots of likes. Ms Turnwall, who teaches gymnastics at school and I bumped into her at the mall, and she is always very encouraging, and she said that the idea of my fashion page would not only be thought-provoking but it could also be sensational. So come on, everyone, and give my fashion pictures lots of likes after I post them, probably next week after I finish the written assignment Ms Turnwall gave us to do on Russians spying on our national gymnastics team at the Olympics.

I’m hoping to be a journalist when I leave school so all this is good practice.

        The plague is not confined to the Blogdom. There are legions of fake authors out there hogging the shelves of bookstores. Most of them are masquerading as bloggers too, and are they conceited! True authors are a vanishing tribe.

    Oh boy. What a confused person. I can relate. I purchased music software once thinking I’ll make post-rock albums and post them on Bandcamp and I’m still reading the manuals. I’ll probably give up and start playing football again thinking I’ll play one day for Liverpool!

        I have a software called Ableton Live. I’m still watching tutorials and reading manuals. It’s all so very complicated these days. And creating something with melody with the right chord progression is harder. I can’t even figure out which key on the keyboard to hit!

    My heart skips a beat
    The hurdy-gurdy of existence catches me off guard
    I feel that I have come so far
    As I reach for my haversack
    The table gives way
    And they call me Rumpelstiltskin

      A quick search took me to a website of “Once Upon a Time Transcripts”. And although it didn’t have a three-legged table called Rumplle-thingy it still sounded a bit like you??? Anyway, thanks for the comment and for me spending half an hour on it!
