More wise words

"Always do sober what you said you'd do drunk. That will teach you to keep your mouth shut."

Ernest Hemingway



I wish you'd load photos on your blogs. It would make them all so much more interesting. I know for a fact that you take lots of pictures, so why not use them in your blogs?

Froog said...

Well, I do from time to time. But they're not really 'photoblogs', you know. Especially not the Barstool.

Also, I have a more particular technical problem at the moment, in that I am having to use a 'borrowed' computer for Internet access, and I don't want to download or copy over a whole bunch of my photo files on to it.

Maybe in the future....

Froog said...

By the way, does your comment imply that my blogs are "interesting - but could be MORE interesting" or "boring - ANYTHING would make them more interesting!"?

If the latter - don't bother to read any more.

I don't think people who want pictures realize how challenged you are in the looks department, Froog, old chap.

I mean, I only agree to go out in public with you because I look like an Adonis in comparison.

Froog said...

Far be it from me to prick your bubble of fantasy, Cowboy.

But without the Stetson and the megabucks income..... I think I could give you a run for your money!

Hey, so, how was Limerick? So sorry I missed it.

If the stories are good enough, I might even give you a 'guest post' on here.


To be totally honest, I have not read a single blog post in your "Barstool Blues" collection. However, I have read a few of your posted blogs on the Froogville and I like the way you write -always have. Some of the stories do seem hard to understand without enough background knowledge of certain things, but they are NEVER BORING. I don't think you could write anything boring even if you tried.
So how was that for a compliment???
And me wanting pictures, is only because I am a very visual person and like to see pictures as stories are read.

Froog said...

Hmmm, so you read the other blog, but leave your comments on THIS one??

I agree with Earthling - pictures would enhance. and I have often asked for pictures.

and froog has often ignored those requests. I can hardly complain. it's not like i ever share my pics with froog...

i am also amused that earthling would read the other blog and comment on it here... :) [though, of course I understand that this is a comment in response to a comment, etc...]

Have I met earthling? are you a beijinger? were you at the infamous party last march?

but earthling, i'm surprised you think froog doesn't provide enough background knowledge? I think he does a pretty dandy job of explaining himself. and if anything remains uncertain, a question in the comment box will evoke more details.

Froog said...

I like the idea of the blogs, both of them, being primarily 'literary'.

Pictures may be thrown in occasionally for variety or light relief, but they are never going to be a regular feature, I'm afraid.


I see you have been commenting behind my back.
About the background knowledge, it is not Froog who dosen't provide the knowledge, but me who has not read a lot of the posts. Not living in China, and not having a major in English literature, leave my knowledge bank less full than many of the other readers of Froog's blogs.
On the subject of me reading Froogville and commenting at barstool, well, some links bring you over to barstool even if you are not a big drinker. And I am visiting barstool nearlly as often as Froogville.
