big gloves to fill

I'm thinking of getting a special pair of gloves to wear just for blogging. I think somewhat tight, white gloves... probably of a nylon-type fiber. I'd put these on, probably from out of some special case, and then my hands would know without my conscious brain even telling them that it was time to blog. I feel like maybe that would allow for some real channelling. And it has just such an intensity about it, I think. Everything that people do really well, that takes a lot of skill, expertise, etc., involves special gloves: surgery, golf, horticulture, falconry, astronaut work, etc. Doesn't that make you wonder? It makes me wonder why I'm not wearing any special gloves for anything, and wonder if other bloggers are.

i once filled a surgical glove with water and stuck it in the freezer, so i could make a frozen hand.

what a novel idea! have you considered getting them monogrammed? or maybe just decorated with a small stylish design?

i've been blogging for about five years now, even before blogs existed. i can see why you might think blogging gloves are a good idea, but inspiration comes from the heart, not the hands. take it from me- my right hand is a hook. and while it's great for my day job (i'm a bartender), it's a real b*tch when it comes to blogging. sometimes the hook gets all caught up in the keyboard, and i'm not sure if i'm risking any kind of electrical shock or what. anyway, keep bloggin'!

I love gloves. I think your idea to wear special gloves while you blog is great. You should totally do it. Why wouldn't you at this point? You seem so dedicated.

You should buy gloves from an estate sale where an old lady died and maybe you could channel her through the gloves and she could tell us what heaven is like.

Gloves: An Introspective Poem

the tighter the better
the blogs like us better
we must
