The Seinfeld of bloggers?

seinfeld

A friend admiringly – well I think it was admiringly – noted that I seem to have the ability to write a blog about just about anything.

People do seem awed by my ability to whack 500+ words out every day without fail.

But there are mornings when it’s really tough. Not every day presents something on a platter that I can pick over like a succulent chilli crab.

This is one of them.

Yesterday was lovely. I went to a brilliant birthday lunch with the most gorgeous friend. I – deep breaths – made an offer on a house (still hanging in the balance). But I don’t feel like waffling about either. They were moments to be enjoyed/panicked, but not excavated.

Also, you won’t quite believe this … but there’s a secret Alana life that I don’t blog. And it was rather fun yesterday too.

But, as River Song would say: “Spoilers.”

Actually, to be more accurate: “Teasers.”

So instead I’m going to wend back to the comment about my ability to write a blog about anything. It reminds me of Seinfeld being described as “a show about nothing.” Although, eeek, I don’t put myself in its league.

Wikipedia describes the show like this: “Seinfeld broke several conventions of mainstream television. Often described as being “a show about nothing”, it became the first television series since Monty Python’s Flying Circus to be widely described as postmodern. Several elements of Seinfeld fit in with a postmodern interpretation. However, Seinfeld himself has stated the premise of the show is about how comedians get their material. The show is typically driven by humor interspersed with superficial conflict and characters with peculiar dispositions. Many episodes revolved around the characters’ involvement in the lives of others to typically disastrous results.”

Perhaps I should add to the “About me” bit of HouseGoesHome: “The blog is driven by humour interspersed with superficial conflict and characters with peculiar dispositions. Many blog posts revolve around Alana’s involvement in the lives of others to typically disastrous results.”

That kinda works. Do you think it means HouseGoesHome is “postmodern”?

Nah, sounds way too classy.

And there you have it. A blog about nothing.

Not that there’s anything wrong with that.

Song of the day: Well, it’s not a song, it’s a best-of from the first season of Seinfeld … and it’s hilarious …
