So to commemorate the end of my first year on the blogosphere, I will celebrate in an entirely new way with something that no one else has ever done: Lists. I know, right? Genius!

A Misplaced Boy’s Top 10 Posts

1. The Secret History of the Inklings 3.0 – 71 views
This is a little bit of silliness that started on Facebook and then continued here. In the post I report that J.R.R. Tolkein, C.S. Lewis, andf the other members of ‘The Inklings’ were not only respected writers, but also a crime fighting rock and roll group.

It amazes me that it’s had so many hits and no comments, but I have a few theories as to why:

  • It really sucks but nobody has the heart to tell me.
  • I found out that there actually is a band called ‘The Inklings,’ and their poor fans have somehow been misdirected to this web site. The problem with that theory is that you would think that at least one of their fans would say, “You suck! This is all wrong…The drummer isn’t Charles Williams!”
  • Everyone who reads it is so dumbstruck by the imagination and brilliance on display that they can only sit there in stunned silence.
  • Yeah, it’s probably the first one.

  1. I fear I may have reached stalker status with 6 times more comments than the next in line…. DOHH!! I just did it again!

  2. To the Brown-eyed Girl: Don’t feel discouraged. I may have an advantage as being non-gainfully employed and therefore with an unhealthy amount of time to spend on the computer. That and an OC tendency – it would be an uphill battle with dubious bragging rights to overtake me! – but I would welcome knowing that someone out there is just a bit more OC than me, so go for it!

  3. To AptOne: I am delighted to find others of my species (OC/with perfectionist overtones) and while I draw no annual income, I find myself WAY too busy…I just don’t know doing what. I too spend many an hour on the computer, although mostly at an hour when the world sleeps. You have inspired me to stop being a mere lurker and become a regular commenter, and for that I thank you.

  4. It does my heart good to see two of my favorite people, who didn’t know each other before, bonding over their favorite subject: ME!
