The Ego Rises to the Top

My birthday is this week. Most every day this week, I’m going to write about me. Heck, it’s a blog – everything I write is about me at some level.

But this month, even more so. Not every day, though. Tomorrow? Probably.

For instance, this from the strange world of Greg Burgas:

Roger Green —


Visually addictive

‘How will you be defined in the dictionary?’ at

I always wanted to be an adjective.

My sister Leslie sent this one:

MARCH – Attractive personality. Sexy. Affectionate. Shy and reserved.
Secretive. Naturally honest, generous and sympathetic. Loves peace and
serenity. Sensitive to others. Loves to serve others. Easily angered.
Trustworthy. Appreciative and returns kindness. Observant and assesses
others. Revengeful. Loves to dream and fantasize. Loves traveling. Loves
attention. Hasty decisions in choosing partners. Loves home decor.
Musically talented. Loves special things. Moody.

I don’t think I’m “revengeful”, and I’m not much into decor, but the rest of it has some validity, either currently or in the past.

Then there’s this from Kelly Brown:

You Are Animal

A complete lunatic, you’re operating on 100% animal instincts.
You thrive on uncontrolled energy, and you’re downright scary.
But you sure can beat a good drum.
“Kill! Kill!”

This is SO wrong on so many levels. If I were a Muppet, CLEARLY I would be Kermit “Bein’ Green” the Frog.

Anyway, this is what I want as my birthday present. No, you don’t have to send presents (though I would never turn down a music mix).

What I want is to get my name in lights, as it were. Specifically, I want to make it to the top seven in Google by my birthday. Presently, I’m at position 9. I have hit the front page a couple times, but then retreated on the roster. Two weeks ago I was #10, then was #14 the next day. Now, I don’t expect to overtake Fung Shui Seminars with Roger Green or Roger Green Sound and Vision or even discredited state Assemblyman Roger L. Green, but maybe I could supplant some of the others.

So, if you would: go to Google once a day, type in Roger Green, then click on the posting for Ramblin’ with Roger. Maybe by March 7, I can hit the big time, Google-wise. BTW, type in Roger Owen Green, and Ramblin’ IS #1 on the Googleplex.

As they used to say in those old Bartles and James commercials, “Thank you for your support.”

Here’s a labored coincidence: I got a bunch of people coming to this blog in the latter half of last month. Checking the source log, it came as a result of Fred Hembeck‘s kind weekly plug and from a mention of Olympic figure skater Tanith Belbin at Tom the Dog’s reply section. Meanwhile Tom the Dog opined about Gilmore Girls, one of the few shows Carol and I watch together. Mr. Hembeck also is a fan. So, in honor of that synchronicity in this Dog eat Dog world, here’s a pic of Lauren Graham from Thunderdog. Told you it was labored.
And lest I forget: the four librarians in my office at the NYS Small Business Development Center now have a blog as well, targeting the small business community and our SBDC advisors. We each contribute something once a week. My day is Tuesday. Actually, we’ve been doing it for several months, but it was an intranet site. Subsequently, we decided that there wasn’t anything that would be violating confidentiality. So the Research Network blog is here.
