Blogger ponders on things instead of musing about them (redux)

Variety of cogitation used on weblogsHAMILTON, Ontario (The Skwib) — The blogosphere is still reeling from the revelation that a blogger has been pondering things instead of musing about them.

“Yeah, I’ve spent a lot of time musing, in fact, the tagline from my blog used to be ‘muted musings from Jeff’s tasty trumpet” — clever, eh? But . . . I don’t know, it just seemed like it was time to, you know, start pondering instead,” Jeffrey Trumpeter told The Skwib in an early morning phone interview.

Trumpeter runs “Assorted Cream Fillings (pudding-like ponderings from Jeffrey’s pastry pan),” a blog devoted to his interest in cats, Boston Cream Donuts, hockey, politics and humor he describes as either “quirky” or “explosive”.

    Man, if I run into one more blog with some variation of “Musings” or “Ruminations” in the title, I’m going to do some serious brooding.

    Thank GOD someone brought this up. I am so tired of the word “musing.” It has become synonymous with “I take myself way too seriously.” Every time I see that word now it’s like being forced to listen to a James Blunt song. Stop the insanity!!!!

    Yes, “ruminations” is also a biggie. Perhaps it would all be easier to take if we were “blunting” (not to be confused with listening to Blunt). m.

    I heard him speak the other day – possibly even more painful than his singing.
