A couple of nights ago, I left a comment on a blog I read every so often--not all that often lately, but we exchanged a couple of emails recently about past comments, and it was pretty enjoyable, so I visited her again the other night. After I left my comment, I discovered that she has a really neat feature: as I scrolled over my name (which is linked to this journal), there's a pop-up of recent topics that I've written about. How cool is that? It was sort of a "tag cloud" kind of thing, and I thought it was a neat feature. What was amusing--and frankly, a little disturbing--to me was the tag cloud generated for this journal.
"Salmonella, Lincoln Logs, Obesity, Renters Insurance, Godzilla, Legos, Brain tumor."
For any of her other readers who happen to scroll over my name, that's quite a range of topics, and I have to wonder what might go through their minds when they see that. Once again, I paint such an alluring picture! Oh man, brainstorm! (Ouch!) While I don't think I can manage to incorporate all of those topics into a journal entry (at least not honestly and realistically), I just might have to try to write a scenario or a little story using them all. Stay tuned! The gears are already turning....
Ken is home safe and sound, and it was great to talk to him and hear about his trip. He felt pretty tired after several hours on the road, so he headed off to bed a few minutes ago, and I'll join him soon. I had planned on making us Muffalettas again, to use up the rest of the olive salad (I got the meats, cheeses, and bread on Friday), but after we got caught up, it was close to midnight, and neither of us felt like eating. It's supposed to be pretty nice tomorrow, so it might be a grilling day. The Muffaletta fixins will keep until Monday!
