Weird, but Inspirational

Tonight, a visitor to the DFWWW said she’d found my blog about Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs inspirational.  And can I just say how cool that is?  It’s great that something that inspired me lead me to write something that inspired someone else.

I know I’ve mentioned this before, but I still can’t get over the position I find myself in.  People care what I have to say.  My thoughts and opinions, for better or worse, can have an effect on others.  I’ve been quoted, gang.  In a modern age where anyone with a computer and a blog likes to pretend that everyone in the world hangs on their every word, I have at least a few examples where some random thing I wrote in the middle of the night (like I’m doing right now) got someone’s attention.  Hopefully in a good way.

The irony is right now I’m blogging about blogging.  And you’re reading my blog about blogging.  Maybe for an extra level of weirdness, you could blog about my blog about blogging someday.

Is there a point to this thing beyond that?  I don’t know.  I guess it’s more of an observation about the strangeness of my position.  For lack of a better term, I am a (very) minor celebrity, a role-model to some, a devil-may-care rogue to others, a friend to children everywhere (or is that Gamera, the jet powered giant turtle?  I get us confused sometime), a curmudgeon with a heart of gold, a clown with a poet’s soul, a dinobot trapped in a human’s body, an outlaw hunting outlaws, a dude who could seriously write all the above and expect that more than a few people will actually read it.

Weird.

Stay in school, kids!

Fighting the good fight, Writing the good write,

    Inpired to inspire! And just think, I inspired you to blog this because you inspired me by your last blog… Awesome, not only did I appreciate the fact that you said you finally accepted who you are as a writer in Cloudy with a Chance…blog. I also agree with fun not automatically being equated with being mindless and maturity with being dull….The balance —-I believe it is when we reach in to our inner child take them by the hand and let them lead…What fun! Just had to go see the movie this weekend, currently(neice and nephew out of town)- I don’t have any young children to hide behind :) , so I decided I would go by myself — too fun! Suprised, but a couple of other adults there also, by themselves -no kids. I enjoyed the messages “being different can lead to greatness” and “not everything we want (to extremes), even though obtainable, is good for us” on a lighter note…. I loved Steve (monkey), just when you thought he didn’t really have any purpose other than to eat gummy bears and then later fight them…. In the end, it’s his ( decoder?)box that’s used to interpret the coded msg from father to son. 2 Cool! Really good movie …. “Well Steve, we’ve got some diem to carpe!” DJ – A.K.A — The Visitor

    “My thoughts and opinions, for better or worse, can have an effect on others. ” This is very true especially to people who blog. Bloggers who have subscribers and visitors seem to influence them through their words, ideas, and opinions.

    Not sure if you’re old enough to remember when anyone bought these, but I was quoted in a popular print magazine once. Mind altering.
