In which I again prove I am old and grumpy.
For somebody like me with a routine,a pattern, a plan (I already know what I am posting 5 of 7 days next week, even if I haven’t written more than a title for most of them yet), and incredibly low standards (I’d rather write something than write something good as I theoretically get better with each post, right?), the addition of a few more posts in a month isn’t such a big deal. Go look down the side bar to the archives menu. I already effectively write one post a day most months as it is. It is just a matter of spreading them around.
But the strain is beginning to show for some. Somebody without a plan, for whom each day is a blank slate and an empty text editor, and who has standards they feel they need to maintain, this sort of sustained effort can be a trial. Or so it seems. I’m the guy with a plan and no standards after all. Anyway, it has been a voyage of discover for some and a pain for others.
But a lifeline has been thrown to the Blaugust team, in the form of a video game questionnaire. Jaysla over at Cannot Be Tamed has put together 21 questions for people to answer on their blogs, and the Blaugust team has gone for this like a drowning man grabbing for a… lifeline… I already used that metaphor, didn’t I? See, complete crap.
Anyway, in the spirit of community spirit… or something… I too shall take the quiz, as well as linking out others who have taken the quiz in that community spirity spirit thing which I mention so recently in this run-on sentence. Also, it allows me to be grumpy, pick nits, write about stuff as far as 40 years in the past, link back to a bunch of old posts where I covered bits of this in detail, and generally ramble on in my accustomed Friday fashion. My previously planned Pokemon piece will be moved out to next week.
Others who have taken the quiz, some of whom aren’t even in Blaugust, but I am feeling expansive today:
- Ash’s Adventure
- Blue Kae
- Caddir’s Weblog
- Cannot Be Tamed
- Casual Aggro
- Contains Moderate Peril
- Crucible Gaming
- Endgame Viable
- Gaming Conjecture
- Gaming SF
- Growing Up in Azeroth
- Herding Cats Part One and Part Two
- I Has PC
- I Have Touched the Sky
- Inventory Full
- Life of a Pleasant Gamer
- Me vs. Myself & I
- MMO Gypsy
- Murf Versus
- Nomadic Gamers
- Simcha’s Many Lives Part One and Part Two
- StarShadow Part One and Part Two
- Tales of the Aggronaut Part One, Part Two, and Part Three
- That Angry Dwarf Part One and Part Two
- The Mystical Mesmer Part One and Part Two
- To Boldly Nerd
And that is surely not all, just the ones I could find easily. I will add more as they pop up.
As for my own answers, I am hiding those after the cut. The whole thing is kind of long, there are pictures, I get a bit testy about a couple of the questions, there is a moment of sexual innuendo, and the whole ends up being something best hidden in the back room so that random passers by don’t inadvertently see it.
This is a choice, what will you choose?
