Dream Critic

I've been having odd dreams lately… again.

Last night wasn't as odd as I've gotten used to, but there's one part of one of the dreams that sticks out in my mind and is directly related to this blog. In the dream, one of my friends pointed out that he enjoys reading sparxMind, but it lacks substance, cohesion, and that it's just me talking about whatever, whenever, and not always making complete sense.

Duh! Duh Dream-Friend! I don't claim to be a topical blog, I don't report about politics, or new electronics, or whatever. I rant about whatever happens to be on my mind at the time. And maybe that keeps me from getting a ton of subscribers, return visitors, commenters, etc. – but who cares? Some of the posts are useful, some are stupid, and some are just blatant grabs at short term traffic (like my previous xkcd related posts that increased traffic by almost 1000 visitors per day for weeks!).

I guess the Dream-Critic was just voicing concerns that had been lurking in the back of my mind, which is why I need to put them to rest publicly (in another rambling post nonetheless!) So… there.

Also, Spudart donated money for my plants! Yay Spudart!

I Need More Plants

I've decided that Snake Plants (Mother-in-law's Tongue) are the ultimate home/office plants. They require little light, watering every couple of weeks, and are very difficult to kill.

Home Depot has little Snake Plants for $5 each, which seems like a really good deal, so I grabbed 2 of them – one for my bedroom and one for my office. But now I think I need more. 🙂

I'd like to put a few more around the apartment, and a few more around work. If you'd like to donate to my "Snake Plant spreading" cause, just click on the PayPal Donate button over to the right (at the top of the sidebar) and put something about "Plants" or "Snake Plants" in the purpose/notes field.

I'm going to have to call the local greenhouses and see if they have a better deal, but I think they're going to have a hard time competing with $5.

Since Snake Plants can be propagated by splitting the plant apart, I think it might be neat to get some extra pots and turn some of the purchased plants into 2-3 new plants.
