For reasons I can’t imagine, apparently I have been nominated for “Most Humorous Blog” honors by these kind people. Go figure. Upon hearing this I promptly curled up in a dark corner and muttered “Must be funny… mustn’t disappoint my audience…” And I thought up all kinds of laff-tastic entries that would prove just how funny I can be, proving only that I am desperately unfunny when the pressure’s on.
Anyway, I’m not winning, so I command thee to go forth and vote. I didn’t want to say anything, but those other blogs? They all have syphilis.*
(Normally I’m not one to toot my own bloggy horn, but last time I said nothing, and then--disgrace. Penury. Death. I won’t let it happen again, damn it.)
Also, today is National De-Lurking Day.
So sayeth Sheryl of the delightful Paper Napkin, and I do whatever other bloggers tell me to do. So say hello. Now. I think this is a bank holiday, too, so you can all go home from your jobs. They’ll tell you that if you leave you’ll be fired, but that’s all part of the holiday hijinks.
*Also, before you think, "Hey, syphilis! I wonder what that looks like!" and do a Google image search for syphilis, I warn you--DO NOT DO A GOOGLE SEARCH FOR SYPHILIS. I was hoping to link to some humorous cautionary poster, and instead saw--well, never you mind. It must never be spoken of. (Wow.)
