Chasing New Unicorns

Life is change, so if I want to keep this blog alive I need to change things up now and then. So I’ve found some new unicorns to chase.

Over the past few years I’ve been stealing quotes, and using them on days when I don’t have any other bullshit to post about. Which is most days. But too many stolen quotes can get about as old as the people I often steal from. So I’ve decided to create several new categories of filler posts, just to break things up and add variety to my bullshit.

This is all a work in progress. I believe in evolution, because I’m too lazy to be creative. So I’ll just let things evolve over time. But for now, here are some additional types of filler posts I’m considering, for your amusement:

Dumb Joke Day.
My Stupid Thought For the Day.
Cheeseburger Grilling Tips.
Weird Word Day.
Conversation Starters for Hitchhikers.
And maybe I’ll throw in a “Who the Hell Am I” game a little more often.

If you have any ideas you can add to this, please let me know. My legs get tired when I’m the only one who catches unicorns around here.

I’m not planning these new posts for any particular day of the week, such as something like, “Weird Word Wednesday.” No, that would be too weird. Besides, it would require too much commitment for a lazy blogger like me. These posts will just happen when they happen, appearing as if from thin air, with no rhyme or reason as to why. After all, that’s the nature of unicorns.

By the way, don’t worry, you quote lovers, Stolen Quote has not gone away completely. I love stealing quotes. I love it when someone else does the work and all I have to do is exercise my light fingers. So I’ll still be fencing purloined quotes on this blog every now and then. Just less often.

If you don’t like these changes, go ahead and pelt me with rotten eggs and tomatoes. You could catch me at a hungry moment.

But in the meantime, let’s jump out of a rut. Let’s turn over a new leaf. Let’s shake things up and blaze a new trail. Yes, let’s stop being so hackneyed and predictable. We must if we want to stay alive. Never forget that the real test for us unicorn chasers is how well we can handle change.

So starting tomorrow we’ll be putting on our running shoes, grabbing a lasso, and chasing after some new, one-horned beasts of an unfamiliar color, that have wandered into our forest.

Unicorns of an unfamiliar color are coming our way.

  1. I, for one, enjoy the stolen quotes. The original quotesters no doubt stole from other sources. That is how we basically work. We are not each born needing to create language and invent everything starting with the wheel.

    • Probably so, in many cases. I think witty people steal from each other with reckless abandon. They might reformulate a quote or a joke a little bit, to make it their own, but they’re still standing on someone else’s shoulders.

  3. News. Just copy and post the titles to a couple of articles. From my perusals of this morning:
    “Natural Gas Market Soars to Record Heights”
    “Taiwanese Unfazed by China’s Show of Military Might”
    “MOM Sends Advisory on ‘Terrorism-Related Activities’ to Maid Employers”

    Hence… Check your moorings, Xi Jinping’s Kung Fu is lame, and always listen to your MOM.

  4. Well this should be exciting to see what you come up! I have no doubt that it will be something good, as long as you don’t follow Jason’s suggestion. LOL!
    I do agree with him about the “Stolen quotes” , you know I like quotes, and you put your own unique spin on them. πŸ™‚

  5. the easiest thing for a lazy blogger is to just start recycling your old posts. It’s likely that many of your current readers were not following your blog back in 2016, so just start with those and simply move forward by one each day… there. you’ve got your blog posts finished for the next few years…
