Me: Hello?

Operator: I have a call for you, will you accept the charges?

Me: Who is it?

Operator: It is your conscience calling, collect.

Me: Oh, Geez!...It is 2 bloody o'clock in the morning, what does he want now! Alright, put him through.

Con: Wake up you impertinent fool!

Me: It is bad enough you pester me endlessly during the day, and now you annoy me at night, when I am sleeping.

Con: Sleeping?! Sleeping?!...How can you sleep at a time like this!

Me: A time like what?

Con: The whole world goes down the crapper and you are snoring your way to apathy.

Me: What do you want me to do?

Con: Take action.

Me: Forge some opposition, start a revolution, and storm the Bastille, perhaps?

Con: HA bloody HA. Let's have less of that lip, shall we? Now get to work!

Me: What do you want me to do?

Con: Write a bloody post for your blog? It has been weeks!

Me: Not in the mood, really. Besides, I am suffering from a bloggers block.

Con: Oh, copious piles of dog poo! There's so much to write about.

Me: Like what?

Con: Impending Iran attack, the Iraq mess, your absolute dislike for PNAC, the growing infringement of human rights, Global Warming, the insanity of Globalists, the vomit inducing reality TV shows, the rise of intolerance by the religiously skewed, the list is endless. So, what do you say?

Me: hmm…..let me think……..Nah, couldn't be buggered.

Con: You heartless and unfeeling blog person! How dare you refuse your conscience?

Me: But what difference would it make if I blog or not? Would anyone notice the difference?

Con: I certainly would. Your thoughts will just then swivel around your head, your rant would have no where to go and as a result your head will explode. It would make such a mess and I am NOT going to clean it up, that's for sure.

Me: Actually, I think I might have run out of things to say (as exhibited by this post).

Con: So this is how you celebrate your one year anniversary of blogging?

Me: Has it been a whole year? Wow! It felt more like 12 months to me.

Con: So are you quitting?

Me: I might be. I prefer going out with a whimper….and that feeling of 'hmm?'.
