Choose-Your-Own-Blog-Post Returns!

Remember that movie, How Stella Got Her Groove Back? Well, it's been running in my head ever since I lost my groove and I keep thinking about how much anguish Stella and I share. Actually, I've never seen the movie; I only know the title. So, it's the title that's been running in my head.

But the point is that I, like Stella, lost my (blogging) groove and need it back. Or else I will perish in the depths of uninteresting-ness. (And what a terrible place that is! Everybody sits around in beige sweaters, reading small appliance user manuals and eating fat free popcorn with no butter.)

Anyhoodle, I was channeling Stella this morning and came up with an idea that I hope will work. I am bringing back one of my favorite games here at the WBWG--Choose Your Own Blog Post! In case you missed it before, here's how it works: I will give you two blog post titles and you vote on the one you prefer and I will write the one with the most votes the next day. Good idea? It was Stella's, actually. She's got her groove back, as you recall, so she's practically bursting with good ideas.

Here are the choices for tomorrow's post:

Ten Items in My Closet That I Never Should Have Bought
or
My Parents Left Me at a Gas Station in Las Vegas

Practice democracy and vote now. Me and my long-lost groove thank you for it. So does groovy Stella.

I vote for 10 items. But I want to hear about the gas station abandonment at our group therapy session, aka Thanksgiving! :)

Cathy said...

I vote for the gas station story. And I happen to love my beige sweater.

Soul-Fusion said...

this is a little weird and maybe a little bit awkward since I essentially stole your choose your own post idea (with a twist) just moments ago. Then I check Reader and you have the same thing!

I vote for 10 items and apologize for copying - sort of.

by the way, I'm a bit skeptical of your claim that you have lost your groove.....

Becky said...

I love the Las Vegas story, but I will vote for 10 things. Can't wait!

alex dumas said...

I am also skeptical. Just the fact that you could contrive this idea to put your readers to a vote, and give them choices, proves that a groove is lurking somewhere.

And I vote for both. That would give you a post for two different days.

I vote for Las Vegas, but I'm quite sure either one could tear me away from my crock pot manual.

Lacey Jane said...

Now I'm very curious- my vote's for the 10 items, please!

courtney said...

i really want to know what 10 items you have that you should never have bought ... mostly because it's you and deep down, i'm expecting to come across an article of amish clothing in there somewhere.

so - spill it, woman. where are you keeping your bloomers?
