My Blog: An Apology

Hi, Blog.

I'm sorry I've neglected you, lo these many months. And I'm sorry if I made any mistakes using that turn of phrase. I don't really have an excuse. For either.

You see, I've wrestled with this conflict for a few years now. If something is good enough to be made into a blog, why not make it into a vlog? A YouTube video would get more traffic, it's a more enjoyable experience for someone to watch a vlog, in my opinion, and they're more fun to make.

But time and time again, I find myself linking you, my neglected blog, in the video information. I don't know why I do it, if it's some kind of self-masochism or if I think people still care.

No one really cares about a blog I haven't posted on since January. 

But the problem remains the same. What's worth your time that's not necessary for YouTube? 

I'm still talking directly to you, blog, yes.

I could talk about how Skyfall and Wreck it Ralph were both great and how I'm excited for Lincoln.

I could say how I went on an epic tri-county search for Twinkies last night and I'll be making a video about it soon.

I could talk about my next parody, about the helium shortage, my ideas for my website, or I could just talk about my day.

I still have some stuff to figure out with this blog.

Hopefully the readers will stick along for the ride. :)

A Chick-fil-Anundrum

So, earlier tonight, I drove over to Chick-fil-A because I had a craving for a regular chicken sandwich and fries. The drive-thru was really busy so I parked my car and went inside.

While I was in the line, a really cute girl (brunette with bright green eyes, cute nose) came in with a friend of hers and both girls got in the line next to me. After a couple glances and smiles, she started talking to me, and it was going really well.

Then, it was my turn to place my order so I did and walked over to the pick-up area to wait for my food. After the girls placed their order, they joined me in the pick-up area. Her friend needed to use the restroom, so then it was just the green-eyed girl and I.

While we were standing there, waiting for our food, the girl asked me if I wanted her number so I could give her a call sometime. I chuckled and said no, right to her face, just as my food was handed to me. I took my food and then walked out to my car.

But now that I'm thinking about it, I feel that was the wrong thing to do entirely. What do you guys think? Should I have ordered the Chick-fil-A nuggets instead of the sandwich?
