Some Cheesy Ruminations
The thousands of regular readers of Yak Herder Central may have noticed that The Swami has been a bit remiss (hey, that sounds better than lazy). Swami has developed a greater appreciation for those people who blog daily, or at least five days a week. He has discovered that it actually takes time and --- Horror of horrors --- you have to think! Don't laugh. Intense thinking can, and has, caused Swami's turban to start smoldering from overheating.
Unfortunately, Swami's parents are both deceased. This, as I may have mentioned before, means that I am an orphan. Despite repeated entreaties, Bill Gates has not seen fit to adopt Swami. And before someone suggests that Swami seek adoption by Madonna or Angelina Jolie, remember: Swami does have some standards.
Until such time as the desired adoption occurs, Swami will continue working. Swami has not had as much time to blog since he is, among other things, learning a new computer system since my employer has been acquired by another organization. Swami thinks that it would save a lot of time by cutting out all of the intermediate acquisitions and moving directly to the stage where every business is a division of Walmart! That seems to be the direction we are headed.
Returning to my theme [THEME?,....I HAVE A THEME?!?...Since when does the Swami have a theme? Well, turn up the volume, huh...Oh, NOT that kind of theme?] Easy does it. As I was saying, I now understand why my older son, Geoff, a freelance writer, gave up on writing a daily blog AFTER spending the entire day writing articles, columns or books.
I believe that this is the point where Swami is required to plug Geoff's book which is now available for pre-order on Amazon.
Now to avoid sibling rivalry, of which there is very little. Here is a plug for younger son Kevin's business blog and his book from a couple years ago [a second book of Kevin's will be out in 2008].
You have just seen before your very eyes why, as a change of pace at least, it would be helpful for The Swami to have a theme for his post. This has been the product of Swami ruminating as he munched on some yak cheese. Ruminating is a habit Swami picked up from Zak. I wonder though, can one ruminate and munch at the same time?
See, this is the type of thing that can lead to a smoldering turban.
