Premature Blogging

Blogging confounds me (Premature Vexation).  I really enjoy writing (Premature Satisfaction) and sharing my stories (Premature Narration), but I have a hard time living up to my own standards (Premature Expectation).  I want to create things (Premature Generation) that I’m proud of (Premature Gratification).

I have a desire (Premature Compulsion) to blog about much of what I do (Premature Exhibition).  I have no shortage of ideas (Premature Inspiration).  So, why not just keep a journal (Premature Rumination)?  Am I really that interesting (Premature Presumption)?

I find it useful to remind myself (Premature Clarification) why I do it (Premature Intention).  I blog to record (Premature Documentation) my experiences (Premature Observation) and to capture my learnings (Premature Education).  I also enjoy writing (Premature Creation) and sharing with others (Premature Contribution).  I want to stay in touch with family and friends (Premature Connection) while traveling (Premature Migration).  I also enjoy the attention (Premature Recognition).

But I struggle to balance accomplishment (Premature Completion) and self-examination (Premature Reflection).  Perhaps I should just focus on being (Premature Meditation).

As it is, I can’t keep up with my ideas (Premature Production).  What else could I be doing with my time (Premature Substitution)?

Perhaps I’m over thinking it (Premature Contemplation).  Maybe I just need to chill out (Premature Relaxation).  I’m too blessed to be stressed (Premature Agitation).

Rather than lengthy monologues (Premature Recitation), I’m going to (Premature Resolution) choose topics (Premature Selection) carefully (Premature Reservation) and keep my writing (Premature Communication) to the point (Premature Condensation).  Rather than engage in mental self-gratification (Premature Masturbation), I will empathize (Premature Association) with my readers (Premature Subscription).  So I’m stopping now (Premature Termination).

Yes, there are 42 ‘premature’s in the post (Premature Repetition).  If you’re lost (Premature Confusion), please see this post (Premature Explanation).

Premature Conversation

I’ve started to play a word game with a few friends (Premature Competition)

The object of the game is to insert creative 2-word phases into any conversation. (Premature Interjection)

Each phrase must begin with the word “Premature” followed by a second word ending in “tion” or “sion” (Premature Formulation)

The Rules (Premature Regulation)

The 2nd word of each phrase must be:

  • A real word.  Anything other than the clichéd “ejaculation” (Premature Definition)
  • Directly related to the preceding statement made in the conversation (Premature Expression)

The 2nd word of the phrase should be:

  • Stated without delay (Premature Hesitation)
  • Not used recently (Premature Repetition)

Extra credit is given for words that:

  • Are as creative as possible (Premature Imagination)
  • Are as esoteric as possible (Premature Obfuscation)
  • Have never been used between the players before (Premature Invention)

It’s not as hard as it seems (Premature Complication).  It’s more fun than it sounds (Premature Objection), especially when you’re drinking (Premature Intoxication).  Once you get the hang of it (Premature Acquisition), I think that you’ll enjoy it (Premature Speculation).  You decide (Premature Existentialism).  Don’t delay (Premature Procrastination).

So, what do you think (Premature Interrogation)?  Do I have too much time on my hands (Premature Occupation)?
