Trying To Write Something Boring

I going to try and write something really boring in this entry. Or write about something boring. I'm not sure which.

I originally though about writing about how I don't like cheese. But now I've decided, after considerable thought, not to write about how I don't like cheese. That would be too interesting.

Then I thought about writing about standing somewhere and staring at concrete for an hour. That sounds boring, but after say thirty minutes it could actually become quite interesting. You look at the little bumps and ripples in the concrete and start imagining little vistas and cities, mountains and valleys, etc. Too interesting again.

Then I thought about writing about how when you're in bed about to go to sleep, what an annoying effort it is to open your eyes, if only for a moment. Say, to look at the clock or something. This is a painful effort, and an obscure enough subject to discourage someone from reading more about it. But, it could be kind of interesting, too, in its own way.

So now I'm thinking of something else that might be boring. Like sitting in the dentist's office waiting for your turn. That's boring, alright, but there's too many other emotions and thoughts that go through one's head in that situation. It's too complex to be truly boring, as well.

Then I thought, relating some personal experience would be good. There's nothing as mind numbing as listening or reading about some other person's personal experience. I mean, who cares? Nobody cares, except the person who lived through that experience. This is very boring, but not boring enough, either.

Then I thought, just typing:

klinkel klinkel klindel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel klinkel

and that would be good enough.

I figured, anyone would quit reading after about the seventh or eighth klinkel. Alternately, after reading, say, the eighth klinkel, the reader may look down the page, realize how many klinkels are left to read, and give up, and the extreme bleakness of reading every klinkel would thus be lost. If you can skip over something boring, it's not boring.

So, just listing klinkels wouldn't be boring enough, either.

Now, I've read, or tried to read, other people's blogs that I found really dull and tedious. So I'm thinking maybe I should just type some links to these other people's boring blogs. Then again, there is a chance that someone might possibly find some of these other blogs I've linked to interesting. For instance, some blog about a girl who gets excited about what kind of makeup she's wearing, or writing that she's done her hair recently in a different way. This could be fascinating to someone who owns a beauty parlor, for instance. So that idea is no good.

Of course, this whole entry about trying to find something really dreary and monotonous to write about may be boring in itself. I hope so. Perhaps no one has even made it this far down the page. They've given up reading maybe even before I typed all those klinkels.

In this case this entry would be a success in itself, or in spite of itself.

But, if anyone has read this stuff all the way through to here, I think I have failed in my intent. But still I think I have succeeded in the sense that the whole idea here is to be tiresome and dull, and for someone to have read all of this to this point, they may possibly be bored with it all, but have read it anyway simply because they haven't anything more interesting to do at this moment in their life. In this instance, I'm not sure if I've succeeded or not.

Lastly, maybe, if someone has read this far, they're a dreary person themself, and all this is their usual kind of reading matter. In this case it is impossible for me to write something boring for everyone, as someone will always consider even the most tedious stuff interesting.

So, I think you can't please everyone, and I've learned its best not to try. Especially when you're working hard not to please anybody. It's like the opposite of not being able to please everyone. If you do your best to discourage people from liking your blog entry, and you do a good job at it, hopefully you will displease most people, but, as I've said, not everyone. This is impossible. There will always be someone who will be pleased no matter how hard you try to put them off. This is a loophole that cannot be plugged. Someone will always squeeze through with a silly grin on their face.

Those who do squeeze through of course will be considered pathetic and valueless individuals by most, but not by me. Who am I to judge? After all, I'm the one who has allowed this loophole to exist in the first place. If someone wants to squeeze through, slap me on the back and thank me for writing something they really enjoyed reading, my response would be to accept their gratitude and grin back at them. I would do this because at that moment I would realize I'm most likely as pathetic and deluded as they are, since I'd written something they consider interesting.

In fact, I may actually admire this kind of dismal and clueless person. They'd probably be like people who actually enjoy watching game shows on television, for instance. You have to admire their stamina.

So now I think I I'll give up trying on this subject. Maybe in that is the success I've been trying to achieve after all. Giving up on something can mean it probably wasn't worth the effort in the first place. I think I've succeeded in this sense, anyway.
