It’s official…I blog

24 April 2007

It’s safe to say that two things were going to be inevitable in 2007…first, Subway Restaurants were bound to increase the price of their daily $2.99 value sub to $3.29 to reflect inflation and second, blogging would be included in my day-to-day activities. The first inevitability became a reality yesterday as I visited my local Subway, fully expecting to purchase a delicious six-inch club sandwich on fresh honey oat bread for the low every-Monday price of $2.99. However, I soon realized that the days of mowing down on a six-inch sub for $3.17, after taxes, were now just a memory…cue the slow motion montage of me with mayo on face with Boyz II Men’s 1991 hit ‘End of the Road’ playing in the background. Instead, I was left pondering why the good people at Subway increased the price of their daily special sandwich. Was Subway spokesperson extraordinaire Jared no longer accepting expired Sub Club stamps as payment in exchange for appearing in commercials? Did the price of processed cheese triangles just skyrocket? Although, one can never be too sure the answers to these hard-hitting questions, the more appropriate and most-likely right answer is simple inflation.

 The second and more important inevitability of 2007 is that blogging would be included in my day-to-day activities. For the past year I’ve been a casual observer of some entertainment news blogs, including The Superficial and Perez Hilton. I’m excited to share my thoughts on communications topics and I am happy to have finally ‘joined the conversation’

    You went to Subway yesterday?  

    What about our new healthy regime and the salad I made you?

    Matt, written like a veteran CC’er.  "I blog, therefore I am."  Welcome!  (I think Niall may have coined that phrase.)

    The phrase is "blogito ergo sum" as I recall ;-)
