Guy Hogan is my name and blogging is my game. Hello hello hello, all you rock ‘n’ rollers everywhere! Your Baby Boomer Papa is reporting for duty. Ah, yes last night I turned on the National Public Radio (NPR) all news 24/7 station low on the radio and I slept like a baby and here it is 6:15 a.m. and I’m at my workstation and ready to begin a new day of blogging. I have NPR on right now. The radio keeps me company. When you live alone you have to find ways to stay connected to the world beyond the walls of your apartment especially if you are retired and a full-time professional blogger which I am and you depend on the mundane details of your life for content for your blog.
But don’t worry. You’ll find a lot more than the mundane details of my life on this blog. All you have to do is to look at the front page or scan the sidebar to see that there are all kinds of cool blog posts here at the PFFG.
I did stop in at Sonny’s Tavern in Little Italy yesterday. Only a couple of customers were there but I was still feeling the good vibrations from karaoke there on New Year’s Eve. I think the New Year’s Eve crowd was the largest crowd I’ve ever seen at Sonny’s and I’m looking forward to karaoke there tomorrow night.
Then I quick-marched to Armand’s for another beer. There were only a couple of customers there. No doubt the weather had something to do with people not venturing outside. The windchill factor made it feel like it was around -18 outside. I was dressed in layers and a cloth cap and gloves and the only part of me that got cold was my face. I held my gloved hand to my face and blew my warm breath into my gloved hand. That helped.
I got an email from HostGator this morning saying it was time to renew my domain name. I have to renew it by 4 February which will cost me $15.00 for another year. Then I’ll have to renew my daily backup by 27 February which will cost me like $40.00 for another year. Then I’ll have to renew my hosting by 9 June for another year which will cost me $110.00. Then I plan to publish at least two erotic flash fiction stories by Jean Michelle and at least two by Heather Kinnane this year which will cost me a total of $100.00. That’s a grand total of $265.00 to help to keep my little diary/smut magazine an online publication of culture for adults and that entertains or informs or maybe a publication that even inspires. And who do I want to inspire? Other bloggers. Other writers of flash fiction.
Hail to Pitt!
“When people talk, listen completely. Most people never listen.”–Ernest Hemingway
“Dialogue is action, too. One way to learn to write realistic dialogue is to listen to how people talk. This is something I always have to remind myself to do. I like to talk too much especially when I’ve had several beers.”–Guy Hogan
