Do I detect a blogging war about to erupt? Mr Souter is making some loud statements about the reasons we blog, on his blog. Methinks he is actually very funny.
I particularly enjoyed his comment that Freud thought blogging was a substitute for masturbation (and gambling) when that is how he came to meet his wife [If this posting was about a Hollywood celebrity, or past one, it would have mentioned his current wife, but that is not the case and so won't be mentioned]. And just to clear up any misconceptions - he was gambling at the time, not looking for loose change in the pockets to place on the table. I'd just like to make that very clear.
My reasons for blogging are not the same as his, gratuitous undertones they may be, so I have to refute his stance on the matter. [If I use enough big words he mightn't be able to understand that I don't agree him. Words like "crap" and "BS" aren't big enough.]
Blog away. Be carefree with your thoughts. Pay no attention to Mr Souter that lover of controversy and contradiction. I have rampant thoughts of Monty Python's "The Argument Sketch" at the moment.
