This week in addition to my regular posts (which as those of you who already follow this blog, know there’s no such thing since I’m an irregular kind of guy), I will be participating in Armchair BEA (click on the image to be magically transported to the headquarters for this event). BEA stands for BookExpo America and is taking place this week in New York City. For those of us too po’ to attend, we have our own event from the armchair of our own home.
Today we are introducing ourselves by answering the main question: “Who are you, and how do you Armchair?” So cutting right to the chase, without further ado, let’s introduce:
Unfinished Person. He is a 41-year-old, soon to be 42-year-old next month, blogger from the hills of northcentral Pennsyltucky. He has a love-hate relationship with calling himself a “book blogger.”
To wit, first, he had a “book blog” called just a (reading) fool and then he deleted it, but still kept the posts here, belying that he really wasn’t a book blogger. In one post, he denied he was a book blogger, followed by a post only a few months later, where he gladly called himself a book blogger. Then only last week he once again said he wasn’t a book blogger, but that he also wasn’t a cat blogger or a humor blogger either.
Dude is obviously confused about what kind of blogger he is, but that is why he is an unfinished person (in this unfinished universe).
He also likes to refer to himself in third person a lot of the time and has a hard time breaking through to the first or second person…
…but for you, I will break through the barrier and will tell you how I Armchair.
We don’t have a chair in our living room, so I’ll be kicking it mostly from the arm of our couch in our living room (I’d take a picture, but the batteries in our camera are dead — I know, I know, maybe I’m not really a blogger at all) this week. We do have a chair in my office, and that’s actually where I’m writing from right now, but it doesn’t have arms, of course.
So most of the time, I’ll be at the arm of our couch, probably listening to Mog Music Network on our Roku as I write the posts for my own Coucharm BEA.
Hope you’ll join in the conversation. If you’re Armchairing or Coucharming, leave a brief intro here and I’ll come check out your blog too. If you’re not, well then, you don’t know the fun you’re missing — well, you do if you click on that BookExpo America link above. But don’t think about that. Think instead about the good things…
For those of you wanting your Les Mis fix after seeing the title of this post and feeling you might be robbed of that, here’s your moment of Zen:
