Hey! Didja hear? Ender’s Game the movie, based on the book of the same name, is due to be released on March 15, 2013. The movie had better be damned good… this is the first time, at least that I am aware of at this moment, that a movie version of one of my favorite books (and book series) will be released on my birthday! Yippee!
Alright, back to this blog thing. I committed myself (no, no, no. not in the literal sense, lol) to writing a blog. For some reason I have yet to confront, I find that I cannot simply stop writing/publishing GirlieOnTheEdge. At least not yet. One reason is, part in parcel (say these two words more than once and you wonder where did that union come from and what does it mean!) I feel it is a thing “not finished”. Things “not finished” are a bane (and a half) to clarks everywhere. Every single clark has this thing about starting something (new), whether it be a sewing or knitting project, a writing project, learning a musical instrument….catching my drift yet?
clarks have brains that do not stop collecting. Ideas. Busy brain clarks. We start a million things in our heads, figure them out (sort of), quick run for the pen and pad (for the younger set, laptop, tablet or phone) and quick write everything down. This can include outlines, topics, a glossary (yeah a glossary, although I have never done that), projected or wished for completion dates, and yes, even lists of materials needed. All sorts of neat shit is written down. You know, for reference later on.
(hint: the future. clarks are of the future. No dumb-ass, not like that. We clarks live more in the future of what we would like our life to be) We are so afraid of forgetting all the neat things we want to do… projects, new hobbies, yet another goal type thing, etc that we totally while away….the now. Here…. today. I am forever reminding myself “what can I do right now, today of substance, that is different, yet complete”. If I decide to start something then darn it! I am going to finish before starting on something else. What? We be the original ADD people?! LOL
Show me a clark that is not presently trying to organize their life, trying to optimize their time in order to (insert your own personal 80 bajillion things that are like atoms inside the Large Hadron Collider that are our heads) and I will show you….an evolved being? A roger? A scott? A trilateral (or should that be trilinear), equally represented/balanced person known among the illuminati as a Bob Johnson?
What? You’d rather hear more about Ender’s Game? I don’t want to say too much about it just in case some of you have not read the book. Wouldn’t want to be a spoil sport. But here’s a teaser: think Dark Orbit (the online video game.) As a matter of fact, an elite member of a specific alliance working on behalf of peace in Dark Orbit, is among my readers here at Girlie. When he is not defending the good people of Earth, he resides in blogging space over at The Secessionist Rag. (btw, the author of said blog is none other than the Progenitor roger of The Wakefield Doctrine.
Now there’s another clue for you right there. The roger, virtually participating in the defense of our world (and other worlds that should be ours) together with like minded individuals (other rogers) via an online game played by thousands of people across the globe. What an excellent example of what rogers are all about!
