For some reason, Blogger is refusing to upload images for me. My only guess is that it has read my posts in the past and is trying to do the world wide web a courtesy. Whatever Blogger, I’ll remember this when it comes time for me to renew my subscription to your free service. Don’t think I won’t.
Naturally, what I was going to post included photos, so I can’t very well post that. So instead I’ll tell you what I’m NOT going to post:
1. My comments on this. We all know I have nothing constructive to add. Seriously, I wrote about four different posts for this over the weekend, and after I finished each one I walked away from my computer for ten minutes and then came back and reread it. And every time I said to myself, “You’d better not.”
2. Marlon Brando’s novel Fan Tan. “Chinese pirates, dingy prisons and high-stakes gambling.” I think those three things say enough.
3. The picture of Kiera Knightly in this month’s issue of Esquire. Because I’ll get in trouble with The Girlfriend if I do. The most I can say about Kiera Knightly to The Girlfriend is, “I loved her in Bend It Like Beckham.” And I did, I really, really did.
4. This picture. Because, once again, when you don’t have an editor you sometimes need to be your own editor. And as my own editor, I don’t think it’s prudent to write about the woman who ate The Flying Nun.
