My New ThunderJournal! *lightning strike*

I have officially, personally, made a definitive decision about something that's been bothering me now for over four years.

I've never liked the word "blog." I don't care if it is the result of meshing the words "Web" and "Log." Blog = Dumb. I do not tell people I blog. I tell them I have a Web site.

Well, I'm sick of saying I have a Web site. That has all the verbal punch of a gurgling whisper, even though it is still better than saying "blog."

Let it be known, from this point on, Rambling Rhodes is no longer a blog. I've thought long and hard on this, and I've decided that Rambling Rhodes should only be referred to as a. . ."ThunderJournal!" *lightning strike*


This is my own personal ThunderJournal! *lightning strike*


When I'm writing, I'm not blogging, I'm ThunderJournaling! *lightning strike*


In fact, now that I think about it, I'm not even going to consider myself a journalist any more, either. I'm a ThunderJournalist! *lightning strike*


I can't believe how cool this thing is now. It's so hip, and now, and wicked, and sweet. I'm marvelling at the sheer ultra-coolness of my entirely revamped ThunderJournal! *lightning strike*

So you write on the Thunderbox?

Instead of the dirty mushroom, it can be the "Thunder from down under".
You knew it was coming, duh.

If you are "ThunderJournal! *lightning strike* (cue sound effect)" than I am Touch-Your-Tongue-to-a-9V-Battery-Blog.

For those not in the know, 'thunderbox' is, in certain parts of the world, a quaint colloquialism that refers to the lavatory.

I always thought you liked a journal called a blog because its got "log" in it and that can mean poop which is a reminder of the mighty dirty mushroom.

I'm still a blogger but now I've got the same protection under the law as a journalist. A journalist who swears alot and thinks pics of his kids make good copy.

Simon, it's not as much of a colloquialism as you think. Here in America, before the days of indoor flush toilets, bedrooms were equipped with basins in which to shit and/or piss, which were usually stored under the bed. Because of the farting that typically occurred during uses of said basins, and the echoing thereof, they were referred to as. . . "thunder jugs."
