11.6.11 – For The Last And Final Time? *

11 Jun

*Of course it would be the final time if it was the last time, but since when did I let tautology get in the way of a dramatic title?  We haven’t all been Freshly Pressed yet, you know.

Today’s topic is brought to you courtesy of Six Word Saturday:

I’m bored with the number posts.

Regular readers know that since 1.1.11 I have been blogging on the year’s fun numbers.  At first, on the first day and it being the first time of the year, it was amusing.  But we are half way through the year and it’s become repetitive.  Look, I’ll show you:

I bet you dozed off before you reached the end of that list, didn’t you?  I know I did.  It’s natural; real, even.  It would be odd if you didn’t.

I didn’t bother writing a 6.6.11 post and no one noticed.  That left me positive that the number posts are past their prime.  I don’t mean to be negative, but I think these posts are beginning to sound as if they’re written by the numbers – when was the last time I  showed you a funny You Tube clip or sunny photo of the Queen to illustrate them? 

I figure the best solution is to ask you, my faithful and beloved readers, to work once again; it’s the rational thing to do. 

Here’s a poll:

    I voted “Other” above (“Botswana!!!)

    A date’s a date, I guess. I’m usually so hard up for anything to write about, I guess I shoulda thought of the whole palindromic angle myself. You usually have an interesting take and all, but….

    Either way, I shall continue to be a loyal reader.

    I have a confession….I have never noticed…put it down to my age.
    It is your blog…if you are getting bored…don’t do it.

    If it doesn’t feel right…well then it’s probably not right! Have a great weekend ahead! I like your cheery photo on your header blog…happiness is as happy shows!

    I just read thru your writings on “numbers” and enjoyed reading them.
    Like you, I enjoy “symmetry in numbers (and words) and quirky things
    that just fascinate or boggle the mind.

    Thank you for your interesting thoughts you share with your loyal fans.

    yeah, it’s past its prime.

    In UK it is 11/6/11, but of course in America it is not. I thought of you, you may be amused to know, while I stood in the queue at the Co-op and realised the date.


    • Pseu June 11, 2011 at 17:28 #

      And I’ll bet you won’t be able to resist on 11/ 11/ 11

      I am amused. Nice to know my tentacles reach as far as the supermarket 🙂

    You can do no wrong.

    I love numbers. Roll on the next number post 🙂

    Or did I mean wheel it on?

    Hi L.H, Happy 6WS! 🙂
    “The last and final time” would be the FIRST TIME WITH ME!!
    But that’s okay because whatever you are trying to teach or show is too hard for me anyway. I do have a math minor but dropped the math thingie with Advanced Calculus.

      I’m showing only that I know nothing 🙂


  13. nrhatch June 11, 2011 at 23:05 #

    No rules. Just write! (You knew I would let you off the hook, didn’t you?) 😉

    I am new here, so all I can say is….
    Blogging about anything should be fun and shouldn’t feel like a chore. If you don’t want to do it , don’t. If it doesn’t feel good then, stop. It’s your blog, you can do what you want to 🙂

    Happy 6WS!

      Hi! and thanks for your comment. TBH I always write about whatever I like; I just used this as an excuse to include a poll because I love including polls. But I like the way you think 🙂

    My first time here and I have enjoyed taking a look around. Thanks too for visiting and commenting on my blog. The number posts are great (I get excited by palindromic dates) but I’m pretty sure I would also enjoy reading other things you may decide to post about. Your poll made me smile. New reader here!


    • Tilly Bud June 12, 2011 at 08:17 #

      Hello, good morning and welcome! Lovely to have you visit 🙂


  16. ElizOF June 12, 2011 at 09:02 #

    Good luck… whichever way you decide to turn. 🙂


    • Tilly Bud June 12, 2011 at 09:04 #

      Thank you. My readers will tell me; my readers know everything 🙂


I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
