Making stuff as a founder of Avocado. Former music-maker. Tuna melt advocate. Started Google Reader. (But smarter people made it great.)

The best by anyone, anywhere, they say.

This is not the Best Blog in the World. (Obviously.) But the journal in my head is something else. Each entry is wisdom's cream. Were I to actually publish this in-my-head blog the whole of humankind would swoon as mothers would throw newborn infants at me screaming, "take him, he's better off with you!"

I'll have to settle for an unevenly updated journal of links and brief entries. No manna, though I wanna. Or maybe, I can exhale a bit - I'm encumbered enough by thoughts-as-ballast.

Despite evidence: Better writers Wendy and Sarah were nice enough to publish a post or two of mine in a book modestly titled The Very Best Weblog Writing Ever By Anyone Anywhere In The Whole Wide World Vol. 1 and I'm embarrassed by the inclusion, but I'm proud of the writing that's been included.

Away from my keyboard, I "write" exemplary posts to my mind's blog. It occurs to me that a shunt for the mentally unpublished would be nicer software for me to help build.

Mai's entry is bound to be better. (And hey, honey, I might just pick up a needle and thread and, er, damage myself artistically in a joint effort. It'd be fun!)

For the curious, I think the volume includes either or both of these stories.

    I once chastened you to not bemoan not being able to record every 'third' that popped into your head as you could recapture it later. You said "Dad, it doesn't work that way." It does work that way with we sparse and slow thinkers, but I had written a piece that pays homage to the thought poppers. "The poetry of the pen is oft times an inferior lot to the poetry of the mind that comes as a fleeting thought." CAW III

    We're very happy to have both stories in the book, Chris! You round out the very best writing perfectly with your graceful style, and I'm not just saying that because 4 of the other stories all include some kind of reference to Arby's.

    And a bunch of them reference 'vomit' in some way. All of them?
    Anyway, I second Sarah: you've got graceful style!
