The Blogger.

I am just a poor boy and my posts' are seldom read
I have squandered all my freetime for a pocketful of comments, some are promises
All lies and jest, still the man reads what he wants to read
And disregards the rest, hmmmm

When I made my blog and profile, I was no more than a boy
In the company of strangers
In the glow of the phosphor screen, typin' scared
Laying low, seeking out the clever bloggers, where the brilliant people go
Looking for the places only they would know

Li la li...

Asking only for opinion, I come lookin' for a guest, but I get no offers
Just a come on from the staff at lovely payperpost
I do declare, there were times when I was so lonesome
I took some comfort there...

Now the firstyear has rolled by me, they are knockin' even me
I am older than I once was, and younger than I'll be, that's not unusual
No it isn't strange, after changes upon changes, we are more or less the same
After Beta we are more or less the same

Li la li...

And I'm uploading my draft posts, wishing they were done, clickin' done
Hoping the new york city bloggers are readin' me, leadin' me to go on...

In the clearing stands a blogger, and a writer by his trade
And he carries the reminders of every quip that laid him down or cut him
til' he cried out in his anger and his hurt
I am leaving, I am leaving, but the blogger still remains
Yet he still remains

Li la li...

Maximum respect to Paul Simon.

It seems a congratulations is in order in maintaining your blog for the past year and reaching the heights and the lows that you have achieved on this one year anniversary of the inception of your blog without pants.

Shall I get the "No Pants" Girl to help celebrate?

Tanya; No, no plans to quit. Sorry for the tardy reply.

BPR; No, the words do not refer to me personally. I tried to make them topical, but general I hope.

Blogarita, Thank you. The get-up may get worse before it gets better.

Doctor Mom, Thank you. The no-pants girl is always welcome! I have achieved some tremendous lows.
