Hee hee! What a great list poem. Those are my reasons too! Happy blogoversary, Greg, with many thanks for all you give to all of us! A.

Ha! "Nothing in my coffee cup" gets me every time.

HAH! Fear of debt... yeah, well, you'd think that would ENCOURAGE the writing, but no.

research. yup, it's all about the research. my wife insists i always use quotation marks around that word, even when i speak it.

Megan Frances said...

Delightful poem! But don't give me any new ideas!

Laurie Young said...

Yup, I got all those too, except "sudoku" and "batting cage." Tho' I doubt I could have expressed it as eloquently or wittily!

Diane Browning said...

Five years! Wow! But obviously you've overcome at least some of those alternate activities. Hope I can too! Wow...five years...

Still love this poem.

Hmm. No mention of "internet porn". Rhymes with "early morn"... but I guess that would really be disturbing.

So grateful to you for leading the way for many of us (especially me, Greg!). You so rock with your continual outpouring of useful information and your genuine generosity. Happy 5th!!!

I haven't recently taken to the batting cage, but oh yes, I do identify! What a fun poem.

I love that the scariest reason of all is the last line of the poem.
Thank you for reposting for those who've come late to this party.
