***obligatory reference to hectic nature of blogger's jetset lifestyle***

***insert excuse for meager writing input here by tangentially referring to obligatory reference to hectic nature of blogger's jetset lifestyle***

***if dire emergency, post pictures of adorable children or pets here***

***utilize hardy perennial reference to received knowledge about political figure to cadge 600 words from autotext***

***mock Microsoft/Blogger/Opposing Political Party/French here***

***describe quotidian activities in excruciating detail here***

***best to edit out throne/magazine/candle details from previous item- not funny***

***post YouTube video your brother sent you of Ray Charles and Van Morrison for no apparent reason except it's terrific***

***mock Billy Joel in front row--you are so not Van Morrison, dude***

Wow! The video's great, but I didn't realize Van Morrison looks just like my accountant now!

Van Morrison doesn't look exciting enough to be an accountant.

An actuary, maybe.

I used to work for our state's auditor, whose office also housed the official state actuary. The actuary once told me that an actuary is an accountant who couldn't handle the excitement.
