‘Attention sugar shackers! I’ve decided to open the-sugarshack.com to all of my friends in hopes that I could get some fresh new blood up in this joint.
Meet Mike! Mike is a good friend of mine who will be bringing a fresh take on….I have no idea what about, actually. I just told him that he could contribute as long as it wouldn’t land either of us in the slammer.
Without further adieu, give it up for Mike!’
I told my friend Jim that I would contribute to this blog (the-sugarshack.com) so I decided to write it while on the bus. On my phone.
This made me realize a number of things, mostly that being on the bus is not the best place to get the creative juices flowing.
First, mobile phone keyboards are lame. And mine is even a smart one! This is my first attempt at typing this blog: “I toos ky friend Jim.” Jim said I should keep this clean so I’ll refrain from saying how I really feel about that (anger is something that comes easily for me). But really!? Hasn’t technology come far enough to prevent this? Maybe my fingers are too fat.
Secondly, buses don’t have enough leg room. Usually when I am writing (almost never) I like to stretch out my pegs, or legs (thanks phone) to think. Not on the bus. My ass is going numb at this very moment. Any attempt to move will probably be taken as aggression by my seat mate.
I don’t know if having a tablet would make this experience any better. The bus is always shaking and bumping around its a wonder that there are no seat belts on these things. I think I am going to have to change my topic mid-blog. New topic: Why buses are terrible.
I’ve already talked enough about them but if anyone has actually had to take the bus they know that buses are the worst level of transportation. Buses exist because you can’t take the subway. Or your city doesn’t have one, and yes I’m looking at you Ottawa.
I guess until that happens I’m stuck with the bus and my mobile. Unless I get a tablet, which would be pretty sweet.
