Blank Post Perpetual

ME: See, this should be a blog. This is the blog.
YOU: What?
ME: This. Just blogging.
YOU: Yeah, right.
ME: I'm really serious. I think that's a good idea.
YOU: Just blogging? Well what's the blog about?
ME: It's about nothing.
YOU: No story?
ME: No forget the story.
YOU: You've got to have a story.
ME: Who says you gotta have a story? Remember when we were waiting for, for that table in that Chinese restaurant that time? That could be a blog.
YOU: And who is on the blog? Who are the characters?
ME: I could be a character.
YOU: You?
ME: Yeah. You could base a character on me.
YOU: So, on the blog, there's a character named me?
ME: Yeah. There's something wrong with that? I'm a character. People are always saying to me, "You know you're a quite a character."
YOU: And who else is on the blog?
ME: You could be a character.
YOU: Now he's a character. So everybody I know is a character on the blog.
ME: Right.
YOU: And it's about nothing?
ME: Absolutely nothing.
YOU: So you're saying, I go in to GOOGLE, and tell them I got this idea for a blog about nothing.
ME: We go into GOOGLE.
YOU: "We"? Since when are you a blogger?
ME: We're talking about a BLOG!
YOU: You want to go with me to GOOGLE?
ME: Yeah. I think we really got something here.
YOU: What do we got?
ME: An idea.
YOU: What idea?
ME: An idea for the blog.
YOU: I still don't know what the idea is.
ME: It's about nothing.
YOU: Right.
ME: Everybody's blogging about something, we'll do nothing.
YOU: So, we go into GOOGLE, we tell them we've got an idea for a blog about nothing.
ME: Exactly.
YOU: They say, "What's your blog about?" I say, "Nothing."
ME: There you go.
(A moment passes)
YOU: (Nodding) I think you may have something there.

Much adieu about nothing?
