Finish the Sentence Friday the Wakefield Doctrine “…if you can possibly manage the time, please play both sides at one meeting.”

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


We have some other friends, Stephanie and Janine and Kate and, of course, Kristi. They are, the Ladies of the Write, aka the Women (who) Finish the Sentence Friday. This being, of course, the first bloghop that we participated in and still a favorite.  Each week a sentence fragment, every week some amazing ‘takes’ on a provocative idea. This week?  Well, I hope my skills are up to my imagination.

This week, the sentence to be finished is:

“If I could go back in time… ”

“… but, I did!”


Speaking of Friends…and Challenges and …the alphabet… (ok, no one was speaking of the alphabet). Lets check in with our A to Zeewriters!

Jen-ay   Friday…. my god it’s Friday already! here, the letter is  J

zoe   our Mistress of Informinationing  what can we tell you,  ‘a rabbi, an Irishman and a dog walk into a bar, the blonde says….’

Lizzi   yeah,  her    ‘here she comes, walkin down the street, gets the funniest looks from, everyone she meets’**

the Wakefield Doctrine  presents:

the Fabulous Bloggers Friday Night vidchat with your hosts

Lizzi and Michelle!

Vidchat update:  Hey! Hey!   we’ve found a more convenient and easier way to do the inviting for the Friday Night Vidchat.  There’ll be a url in a number of different places tonight (e.g. on the FB and here and on Lizzi’s blog ‘Considerings’)… click the link and you’ll be at our door.  How easy is that? We’ll also be doing the traditional form of invitationing (our Ms Rogers so gets into the fun of finding unsuspecting bloggers and getting them to stop by..)

Speaking of stopping by… now that everyone knows about google+ hangouts  there are a lot of different events and hangouts to go to… which is totally good. Never a dull moment in the 21st Century, eh?  Just want to mention, there are a couple of different formats for vidchats… one is simply a live connection, the other is live and recorded.

Lizzi and Michelle’s vidchats are not and have never been recorded.*

It’s just what we did when we started doing these last Fall…a live hangout, talk to friends, meet people, stop by for a minute and come back later… you know, like that dorm room on a Thursday or Friday night, where everyone passes through on the way to the weekend. Just wanted you to know.


*there is  another type of hangout that allows the person running to record it and save it to their youtube account…for re-use later. We never record. If you’re not sure when you get to whatever hangout you are at, your best bet is to simply ask your host,  “hey  roger!  are you recording this for some kind of mean joke later or what?”  (being rogers, if the answer is ‘yes’ they’ll still deny it but get all offended that you’re accusing them unfairly of something  lol)

clarkscottroger About clarkscottroger
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


  1. So you did go back in time and seriously why didn’t I think of that! But seriously happy Friday and thanks for joining us again this week :)

      lol.. thank you, this was one of those times* when there was a very real possibility that the idea exceeded my skill to convey.

      *one of those times? better count again, clark

    if you haven’t seen South Park and you haven’t seen Timmy ( Timmeh!!!) go back in time in his wheel chair, you will not believe it . Now that is some incredible time travel!!! I mean REALLY GREAT!
    jeh nay

  3. christine says:

    That photo is hilarious! No vidchat for me tonight. I will be in the middle of a 10 hour drive to Virginia. Have fun!

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:

      I normally would say, ‘take a lot of photos!’ but I know better than to think that is necessary.

      (hey Virginia is a bit of a hotbed of blogger activity! Kristi and Denise and Cyndi and Laura (well sort a Virginia, if you count abutting States and all, lol)

      have fun!

  4. Hi-dee-ho!
    Irrelevant to today’s post, but still a fun observation: the predictability of rogers. We can always tell which one of our neighbors drives by, exactly by how they drive their car. The woman always slows down at the speedbump; the guy always barrels over them.
    And national sibling day? Did you see that on the FB? Everybody posting photos of siblings? Themselves included. Rogers. They’re EVERYWHERE. Not that I don’t like a nice roger when I meet him/her, but know this: I am not close to any rogerian friend. Not even a one. Must be a clark thing. Other clarks? Yes, three really good friends from college that I can call anytime. All clarks. Our friendships are more than 15 years old, too.

    Singing doo wa dee dee dee de dum doo do do. If that song remains in my head ALL DAY because of you, Imma be pissed. And any vidchat that’s being recorded is no vidchat for me to attend. Ever. Fucking Rogers. Also what did the blonde say in the bar?

    • lrconsiderer says:

      *tries to think what Kristi would say in a bar* Yes, you can buy me a drink and then go the fuck away…?

      • findingninee says:

        HAHAH! Maybe so. I once said “yes, I have a boyfriend.” over and over and over. Then, dude wouldn’t leave me alone so I told him that I had a special roommate, and we pretended we were gay the rest of the night. Got a lot of drinks, though.

  6. I’m usually the butt of the joke, not the teller of the joke. Also still curious about what the blonde had to say?? ;)

  7. lrconsiderer says:

    Now now, dear – claws away ;)

  8. Haha… always good to see you. I will be thinking of that “picket sign” all day- love it! You know I’d give anything to be a time traveler… if I could have a super power, that would be it, my friend.

    • clarkscottroger clarkscottroger says:


      you know, I was thinking about the Time Travel thing, and suppose you woke up tomorrow in college dorm room (freshman year)…. (there’s a book here somewhere), but if you remember the day to day, how long before your ‘present age’-self starting screaming…’grow the hell up!’ (not to mention losing your present day family, taken farther away from you than anything could… separated by time).

      lol have a good Friday!
