Finish (something that resembles) The Sentence (before the end of) Friday the Wakefield Doctrine hey, if you do it enough, you don’t want to not do it…you know?

Welcome to the Wakefield Doctrine (the theory of clarks, scotts and rogers)


The best and worst parts of blogging are…

damn! finally!  an easy one!

… is the end and the beginning! or is that the beginning and the end… wait, hold on, no one say a word.

(” hhm  hmm is hmm the best part of blog…”  shit! that’s a damn  coffee commercial!!”)…ok ok  don’t panic!!  clear your mind (” the best part of waking up… wtf?!?  thats a commercial for frickin corn flakes, that’s not blog writing!)

Update: 7:47 pm EDT July 26,2013

well, that went according to plan!  (Best: Plans for writing posts, Worst: Reality’s effect on Plans), today wasn’t that unusual as far as my writing a Finish The Sentence Post. (hey, it’s late, this will be brief, if you don’t mind, I’ll just give the grammar and punctuation police the night off.  (Best: well executed and thought out syntax and such, Worst: misspellings and auto-spell sneaking in a through instead of threw), as the block quote shows…I had an idea that I found amusing first thing this morning ( Best: clever, off-the-wall-ideas for Posts, Worst: half formed clever ideas that sit on the page and mock the author).

so, I left the house without writing and publishing a Post this morning ( Best: have a place in the house where I can get away from the world and come and create another world, Worst: the real world does not always care that I only need another hour to flesh out the idea), so I left  the house and the next thing I know everything got crazy (Best: tons of ideas for Posts in the course of everyday, Worst: not being able to change my focus from dealing with work and real life in order to get this stuff ‘on paper’), but here I am, in front of the keyboard and I was chatting with Considerer about her weekend blog hop Ten Things of Thankful and as I said, “this would be the first time I have missed a FTSF” I did not like that feeling and told her that I was going to write something/anything even 100 words so I could ‘contribute’  (Best: having friends like Janine and Kate and Stephanie and Dawn who have been supportive of my efforts, Worst: not writing a Post.)

I will pad this here Post here with a music video that will totally get in your head for the weekend. (Best: having people I can do this to, Worst: not feeling responsible enough to not do it…) lol

Well, what exactly do you want to know? Whether I am a clark or a scott or roger? If you have to ask, then you need to keep reading the Posts for two reasons: a)to get a clear enough understanding to be able to make the determination of which type I am and 2) to realize that by definition I am all three.* *which is true for you as well, all three...but mostly one

    Ahhhhhhhhhhhh White Stripes. These I know.

    So in summary (re: your last) – old enough to know better, and young enough not to care?


  2. Thanks a damn lot! It took FOREVER to get this song out of my head after using it my own damn self awhile back. Now, thanks to you, I have to start over! LOL

  3. Aww, Clark you really are a wonderful friend and seriously you made me smile about not wanting to miss a linkup with us. I know everyone has crazy lives outside of the even crazier blog world and the fact that you would write just anything to indeed join us totally put a smile on my face. Thank you seriously for just being you and linking up!! Hope you get some quiet time tonight and this weekend, because you my friend definitely deserve it!!!

      I will see you are the metaphorical streets of TTofT-ville this weekend.

    And we writers/bloggers are ever the optimists thinking that if we have just 10 more minutes we could get everything down that we needed and that we’ll ever have enough time in the world to get those thoughts into some sort of comprehensible form :)

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:


      ‘Optimist’!! I like that sounds of that (much better than, ‘hey! you have a real job, the Noble Literature Committee will probably be willing to wait…’ )lol

    Totally understand, my friend. I’m working 8 eleven hour days in a row and blogging all night. I’ve fallen asleep in the computer chair five nights running (just awoke a couple of hours ago). Even less time to read those of my friends available. Crazy world, crazy life, maybe just crazy to keep at it. Hang in there!

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:


      beats the hell out of scrabble and frickin ships in bottles, no? lol you and Kristi… nice work there, dude! You guys is rockin the blogosphere. This little town is totally comin to life.

    Actually the “best part of waking up” is Folger’s in your cup!

    I can relate to almost all of the “best” and “worst” descriptions given, especially thinking you have something fancy and cleaver. Nay, knowing you do, but then when it is down on paper… yeah, no. That exists with just about each and every one of my posts lol

    I think I may fancy dandy little blog post titles and subject header titles, but a lot of the content I think may fall flat in written form compared to how it sounds in my head. Even shit that has me laughing hysterically. It’s an odd, repetitive reality check really…

    Glad you got in this post! I’ve felt this way about the TToT before (I think just recently) when I’m just not wanting to write a post (though really wanting to write a post) and especially with always being so super tired now and and and… excuses excuses. :)

    Love that song. It’s on my workout playlist.
