Better to Make Just One Little Blog Post?

Oh dear, I have it again: the dreaded Type Something In Then Backspace It Out Disease.  I must fight it!  Remember, Cindy, a bad blog post is better than no blog post at all!  Or is it?  Discuss amongst yourselves.  Let me know if you reach a consensus.

In the meantime,  I think I can just about manage a Monstrous Monday Post.

“I bid you welcome.”

Here is Bela Lugosi, demonstrating the maxim that it is better to light just one little candle than to stumble in the dark.  I bet you didn’t know Count Dracula was such a philosopher.

“But I like the dark!”

And here is my favorite guy, Nosferatu.  I was actually looking for him when I saw the shot of Bela and thought of the candle line.

An artist’s depiction of me getting carried away.

I was taking entirely too long searching my Media Library for a related or even remotely related picture so settled on the above.  Get it?  I got carried away with looking through the pictures?  I think the candle line was better, but one does what one can.

Did I mention I have a headache this evening?  I did not mean to whine about it but wanted to offer some slight excuse.  A lame excuse,  you say?  Don’t say that!  You only remind me how long it is until Lame Post Friday!   Oh well, I’m the one that wanted weekends off.

On the brighter side (lit by that one little candle?),  I see I am over 200 words. Score!

 

Vamping with Vampires

It should come as a surprise to no one that I am ready for bed on a Monday, have not made my blog post (nor in fact accomplished much of anything useful), and, quite frankly, I got nuthin’.  This is the point where I usually start to throw in pictures of monsters and vamp.  One thing I can do is vamp, although I usually call it blathering on.  Why don’t I call it vamping?  It sounds like a much better thing to do, in a blog post or elsewhere.

“I’m kind of in the middle of something here.”

Since I mentioned vamping (no, autocorrect,  not camping, vamping!), I searched my Media Library for a picture of a vampire.  I was hoping for Dracula, but Nosferatu will do just as well.

“Let me shed a little light on the subject.”

There’s my boy Bela!  Bela Lugosi is considered by many to be the definitive Count Dracula.  It is certainly an admirable performance.

I wish I had this book in my collection!

I do not know who the model was for this depiction of the Count, if in fact the artist used a model, but I just love these pulp fiction paperbacks.  I buy them whenever I find them for cheap.  Sometimes I actually read them, although they are often falling apart.

I keep hoping I can segue from these admittedly foolish blog posts into some more better writing (grammatical error intentional), but it hasn’t happened yet.  Still, one continues to hope (one being me).  In the meantime,  I hope at least some of my readers have been entertained, and as always, I thank you for tuning in.
