People who happen to spend more than a few passing minutes with me and a certain group of friends of mine (namely Jameses, Rod, Carl and Dingo) are amazed at the amount of randomness the conversations produce. While I can’t speak for other people, I have a suspicion our conversations start like any other, a random anecdote or piece of information kicks it off and moves from there. This is where the magic often happens, someone moves the conversation in a direction no-one could have ever predicted and we end up in Kansas, or Wonderland. (As an aside, I’ve never read nor watched Alice in Wonderland). Anyway, I digress – from what I’m not entirely sure due to the fact that there doesn’t appear to be a point to this post.

Now I will get to the point soon, so stay with me and the point shall present itself.

Now my history is a little bit scratchy, but I believe it was Jameses who coined the phrase “Random Minutes” in relation to the time that I must spend each day thinking of random/useless information. I had never thought about it like this, but I suppose he had a point. There is a lot of time while I’m riding my bike, or waiting for the coffee to be made where my mind wanders, through corridors that often will never be walked (or wandered) again. At the time Jameses suggested this concept I recall him targeting me specifically of this affliction, but I think as his recent post regarding his exploration of some new music suggests that he too is a sufferer.

Now the point of all of this explaining is not only to record the concept of “Random Minutes” for posterity but to announce a plan I have for this blog over the next week, and into the future. I am planning to spend time every day of this week writing on this blog, I’m talking about actual meaningful content. By meaningful content it might be random observations (read: not necessarily meaningful) but it won’t just be a link or 2 that I’ve collected from the net. My plan is to post something each day. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to keep it up but I’ll give it a shot and see how I feel come next Sunday.
