paul and beartil

I often think about this blog, and whether I should keep doing it. I get enjoyment from it, and sometimes (not as often as I would like) it can be informative, insightful, witty and just plain fun to read. I have gone over my reasons for writing more than a few times in this blog and those haven’t changed.

What I find intriguing is why the people that read it …read it. I suppose there is something to be learned from those gems of wisdom that sometimes appear. I do google things so that my facts are correct…ish. Mind you, I don’t let truth get in the way when I am writing. I know that it is more often than not pretty funny. Not all is intentional of course, but I really don’t care if you are laughing with me or at me. Laughter after all is laughter.

I have friends and family that read it. I am not sure how I feel about that, you would think that they would have had enough of me in person over the years. Some people are just nuts! There are probably plenty of people that are googling some fact or another and stumble upon the blog in their web search. Those are the people that I find most intriguing. I wonder what they think about it or whether they read the whole blog. Very few will make a comment on the blog and perhaps that is a good thing. I have never been a fan of brutal honesty.

People all over the world read this blog. Not all at once, or not even enough to make me proud, but they do read it. I have noticed a few comments over the months that have caught my imagination. These comments for some reason don’t always get listed in the “comments”, at the end of the blog, but I get an email notification. Here is an example.

hi there  please pm me, i lost your details 


Now, to me this looks like beartil and paul are having a conversation about clothing, shoes or condoms. I have a tendency towards conspiracy theories and I want to know what the fuck paul and beartil are up to. Why would they use my blog to talk to each other? If they are going to use the blog to talk to each other, would it kill them to say “Hey, great blog today!”? I could have lived without yesterdays, it sucked!” Well, bite me bertil!

Don’t they know about Skype or GMail’s “Call phone”? Why do this so cryptically?

There are a couple of possibilities that come to mind. It is possible that paul and beartil are lovers that for whatever reason are keeping their love under wraps. The reasons might be that their families are feuding or perhaps they are both in the closet and are afraid to declare the love they share. I am telling you paul and beartil, don’t hide your love, take pictures and put it on the web for all to see. Let me know how that works out for you in the comments section of the blog.

I have readers in the Ukraine, Russia, China, Korea and Lithuania. paul and beartil could be spies that are sending coded messages using my blog. It wouldn’t surprise me if “correct sizes” meant payment for the assassination of some third world dictator or freeing people forced into slavery (working for Nike or Oprah). I guess you could say that my blog is helping to make the world a better place. Now I am blushing!

I wonder if there might just be a medal for me. If there isn’t, there bloody well should be!


  1. With all this spy intrigue going on you may get a metal in the form of a full metal jacket bullet! B

  2. It's true that I live on the edge. Intrigue is my middle name. Well, assuming that you spell it A-r-t-h-u-r of course.
    I noticed I misspelled "beartil", if she has a problem with it then she can kiss my furry behind.

  3. I fixed the mistake. That should keep future historians off of my back.
