Killing Time – October 31, 2013

Killing Time

Time is more valuable than money. You can get more money, but you cannot get more time.
~Jim Rohn

Well, first the important things: welcome to all the new followers who seem to have flocked to my blog of reality stabbing in response to my posting that I was too sick to do a post about yelling at Ridley Scott.  One can only dare to dream what will happen when I can actually sit up here long enough to write the confusticated thing.  I’ve broken my record for new followers in a day and it’s not past lunch.  Maybe I should write all my posts with the aid of Nyquil…

Last week, as you no doubt have marked in your journals or etched on whatever tablet your community is using to keep records of important events, I joined Audible.  Yes.  I have embraced now not just the electronic book but the spoken one.  What was once heresy has now become a 24/7 effort to be able to have books flowing into my various sensory holes.  In week one I listened to three books and read four, so I think the experiment is working.

Killing Time milestones this week: Despite my plucky little intro, this has been one of the slowest weeks on the site in recent memory and the only one where we haven’t broken 1000.  We’re poised at 34k, but have not yet smashed through it.  This, as in all things, may be laid squarely at the feet of French Guiana.

The most popular article of the week for the second week in a row was a summary of what TV Shows Have Been Renewed or Canceled This Season Thus Far.

Grenada has been taken by the Killing Time phenomenon and become our 148th nation to visit, a taking accomplished far more smoothly than Reagan ever managed it.  Too soon?  Probably too soon.

You know who didn’t stop by this week?  If you answered French Guiana, then you’ve been privvy to my growing mad fixation on the tiny  South American dot that is preventing me from coloring in all of that continent in the giant map we keep in the rumpus room of the KT Lair (like your lair doesn’t have a rumpus room with a theatrically large map, don’t judge me).  At the risk of sounding repetitive….my friends in Suriname….the Maroni River which borders you and French Guiana is hideously secured.  It’s a national problem.  You would be helping them SEE that!  You swim the river, make your way to an Internet hostel, crank up KT, hit refresh on a couple of articles and then cartwheel your way back to Suriname.  Or look for a job there, because actually the jobless rate in Suriname is not good and French Guiana is ostensibly in the Euro Zone as a French protectorate.  What?  This isn’t common knowledge?
