Top Ten Tuesdays: Why are we still blogging?


9) Do not get nearly the same level of positive feedback when we post dick jokes in company e-mails.

8) Just when we think we’re finished with cute pictures of cats with humorously misspelled captions, they pull us back in.

7) Fucking novel refuses to write itself.

6)  Comments from virtual friends is a nice change of pace from comments from our imaginary friends.

5) Get much more satisfaction out of writing 1,000 words about how a combination of poor barista service, a parking ticket, a block of Cure songs on Spotify, and a bad sexual experience have made us completely miserable today instead of just posting a picture of a sad clown to Tumblr.

4) Still hoping to take our unpaid talents to the Huffington Post some day.

3) When we said until death us do part, we meant it, and Blogger won't fucking die. 

2) Keyboard still helps us reach that seven-year creative itch. 

1) We’re still blogging?

There. is that enough positive reinforcement yet? Because I am fucking WEARY.

Hey now. I may have to ask Milwaukee Law Firm and Absinthe Distillery whether that infringes on my trademark "I have a blog" comment of Saying Yes fame. I may also wait until you're rich and famous.

You're awesome, Brando.

"...instead of just posting a picture of a sad clown to Tumblr."

Made me laugh. :)

I said "Tumblr Blog" to blue kid the other day when referring to (a?)Tumblr, and he gave me a look like I was from the 19th century. I take it, it's not a tumblr "blog" -- just a Tumblr. Or just "Tumblr." I have no idea...

I can't imagine that Substance will be able to pass that one up without a JanusNode link.

The internet is our god.

It certainly answers more prayers, by any measure you might want to establish.

Gives hands something to do in coffee shops that frown on public masturbation.

William Way said...

We were utterly drunk the whole time we had a LiveJournal account, and can't remember a thing about our embarrassing missives.

Brando said...

LOL at BBB. It's funny 'cause it's true.

I really wanted to write about music today, but this goddamned real life thing is not cooperating.

without a JanusNode link.

Well there IS a plot writer.

Natashia and Ramonita meet in a church. They are very different people. She is a precociously hermeneutical Aristotelean highway engineer with strong anti-Ross Perot opinions, while he is a guidingly cybernetic situated movie star who dislikes folk music. She likes his love for primitive folk music and Lewis, which she finds hot, although she suspects that ramonita does not always appreciate her attention. He is intrigued by her organ and her determination to persuade others to take up theoretical social causes. Natashia is working at an university. Ramonita, turning from a life as a justice, is trying to get work as a press agent.
They get married despite disagreements about oscillation's dialectics and chaos theories. Natashia is incensed by Ross Perot's folk music. Because of Natashia's persistent abrasiveness, Ramonita goes to a church with Monica, his motel lobby girl and the ex-journalist of his half-way house bliss, even though Monica is not into essentialist folk music. Natashia and Ramonita decide to part when she dearly realizes that he is not the same amnesia of the church and will always choose the easiest way out, whether it is nourishing in a marriage or bellowing her connotation.

waiting till blogging goes full circle so we can be old school. (also, get off my damn lawn/comment section)

Janus Node makes more sense than Finnegan's Wake.

Brando said...

Fish, the sign of great literature is being completely incomprehensible.

fish said...

JANUS NODE IS THE GREATEST AUTHOR OF OUR TIMES!!!

I see an epic prank bigger than Sokal.

Kathleen said...

also the sign of a great libertarian

Jennifer said...

Why are we still blogging? Phantom Blog syndrome I guess... the blog was cut off long ago, but we still feel the itch.

Von said...

#5 is why I think you are so super awesome and makes me want to be your friend.
I think I'm still blogging because I still think I'm funny.
Sometimez.
