This is the song that comes into my head when I think of weekend blogging. I picture an endless desert with nobody around, and a single cowboy blogger riding alone on his horse.
But I guess it's not a bad thing that bloggers are doing something else on their weekends besides... well, blogging. I suppose it means that people actually have lives. Imagine that.

I woke up this morning after having this strange dream where I was playing in a nightclub, and after one of my songs some guy in the audience stood up and started belting out Billy Joel's song Big Shot, but he was doing it all Billy Joel-style.
Wuellll, you went uptown riding in your limousine, in your fine Park Avenue clo-othes. You had the dom perignon in your hand and the spoon up your nose.Then when he was finished, he handed the microphone over to some middle-aged woman in a blond wig and bright blue eye shadow who stood up and started singing Miley Cryus's song See You Again. But in her case she couldn't sing in key and everyone started yelling at me to make her stop.
Then I woke up in a cold sweat.
I'm pretty sure I know where that one came from. Yesterday afternoon I went to church to take advantage of the discount admission price of the Saturday 4:30 service, and when I got there the piano player was in a panic because the scheduled cantor hadn't shown up, and she started begging me to come up and lead the singing. I tried to decline seeing as how I was wearing jeans and tennis shoes but she wouldn't have anything to do with it, and the next thing I knew there I was... belting out church songs, and doing it all Billy Joel-style.
Ok, the last part wasn't true, but I'm guessing these two incidents are related. As far as psychoanalysis goes, I'm a pretty easy read - kind of like a Golden Book of nutjobs. Anyway, the singing went fine and nobody threw tomatoes - but I think I saw the priest look directly at me and mouth "except you" when he offered the sign of peace. So I'm feeling a little insecure about that.

Fianlly for those of you who use Blogger, you simply HAVE to check out this blog. http://www.bloggerbuster.com It contains everything you ever wanted to know about how to customize your blog and much much more.
The awesome author of it, Amanda, is a wizard on how to modify your template and not only shows you hundreds of the best template designs going, but she also publishes complete tutorials on how to make the most popular modifications - including the actual code to do them! And if that's not cool enough, Amanda will actually answer your questions personally if you email her. How amazing is that?
The only downfall I've found about her site is that I now have to find a spare 100 hours so I can start trying all the awesome new widgets and tricks and magic sprinkles she provides.
Hmm, maybe I'll use the weekends for that. I don't blog then anyway.
