hark! a challenge. (hark! i lost it.)

a little thought on the matter suggests that the reason i get so restless with blogs is that i tire of my own rambling very quickly (it’s not polite to snort). aside from switching brains with someone less rambly, the only way to fix this is to play by different rules this time. so i’m going to take up a suggestion i never thought i would.
someone recently suggested to me that a good way to step the game up would be to restrict what i write about to one single issue. i am the queen of digressions, what. not to be too dramatic or anything, but i’m going to be pulling an icarus if you cut my digressionary wings off for good.
so since i lack the testicular fortitude to restrict themes for good, i’m going to see if i can do it for a limited number of posts at least. say, three. three posts is reasonable. i’m going to pick a theme word and restrict posts to this theme.
i just riffled through a dictionary and stuck my finger on a random word. the word is ‘mangosteen’.
this was a shitty plan.
