lots of irrelevant subjects.
My mind started wondering to the subject of what makes a blog readable? Some blogs take so much effort to read that if they do not publish a full post in their RSS feed and I have no clue what the posts subject is – I do not visit the site often. I have enough problems trying to figure out if I understood what the author blogged about.
Along with multiple sclerosis came brain fog. My reading comprehension skills are OK I sometimes apparently miss others linguistic nuances. Just like I have troubles analyzing facial expressions of others. Are they serious or joking? Is that a nice smile or a grimace? When I read something I am not always sure if the point that I think the author made is really what they meant. Was the subject again? Oye!
Some blogs go for the bling! Too many side bar goodies and especially the ones the move drive me nuts. When my optic neuritis is bad (one eye is usually wonky) I find them distracting. I wonder if a widget showing everyone who has dropped by is worth the extra load time? Like a minor version of being stuck in a crowd and getting the sensory overload shut down. Way too many bling-bling things and it takes forever to load the site in the browser. My short attention span theater mind moves onto another authors post and another subject.
Moving on to another subject . …
Billy and Trish are coming tonight. We are going to head out to San Francisco early Friday morning as Billy has an appointment at the VA and I get to be the crash test dummy (our name for the third person in the vehicle so using the HOV lane is legal). This is a great position because the dummy does not have to drive in the city!
So, I am watching the weather over the pass from Nevada to Calif. and hope the snow and rain stay away! They are coming in later tonight so we are impatiently waiting their arrival. If we are going to do any exploring after his appointment I will take my scooter – another subject for another day. We usually try and eat lunch at the Delancy Street Restaurant . We always enjoy the food, the price is right!. and we love the fact that all the workers are getting their lives together. I hope we get to stop in at China Town. I can never, ever get my vehicle in the parking spots that are available and Billy can squeeze their big F350 in to a space fit for a Volkswagen. I need to stalk up on my favorite mint tea and pick up some more rice sticks (Chinese noodles – Guilin míf?n). If we make it that far I hope we can visit the Fortune cookie place again – I love the employees and watching the process while stuffing my face with hot cookie chips.
Here is hoping the weather is good in the Bay Area.
