I had to add the “without snakes” disclaimer for my loyal reader Teri because apparently I have to do that now. Particularly after the comment she left on yesterdays post. For those of you that missed it, it was something like:
“Where was the fucking WARNING “picture of SNAKE coming up” holy crap dude!”
Ok, it wasn’t something like that . . . it was exactly like that because I copied and pasted.
So I’ll begin today with the “Teri Disclaimer”. Teri, this post contains no:
- Pictures of snakes
- Pictures of bugs
- Pictures of clowns
- Pictures of penises
- Pictures of clowns penises
- References to sexually transmitted diseases
- Any other weird shit that gives you nightmares (probably)
Ok, now that we have that out of the way, I can get on with this . . .
I have to say that yesterday was a most productive day as far as the networking went, particularly through the Twitter end of the deal. You may, or may not have noticed that there are quite a few new blogs listed in the sidebar and I had the pleasure of exchanging some most pleasant Tweets with MOST of them last night. One of them doesn’t have a Twitter account (that I can find anyway, since it isn’t shown on her blog). So first, let me lay out the props to the new and funny ladies that got added today. I highly encourage all of you to check out their stuff as they are all quite creative and funny.
First I’ll re-mention @KateWhineHall even though I mentioned her yesterday already, because she’s fuckin’ awesome and she friended me on Facebook and shit and she’s pretty hilarious all the time and not just in her blog, Can I Get Another Bottle of Whine, which is also hilarious.
Now for the even newer ones that I’ve put up last night and today, check out all of these because they are all hilarious!
So as you can see, she’s awesome so go visit her blog.
I swear I went to hell and back to find the Twitter account for @RageMichelle because I couldn’t for the life of me find a link to it on her blog. That missing information not withstanding, the blog is awesome, funny, sometimes serious and she has some issues that I can relate to. Please visit her blog at Rubber Shoes In Hell.
Darcy won my heart over with the very first post I saw on her blog, I Do NOT Want My Nipples There, Please. So give her a follow on Twitter @SoThenStories and subscribe to her blog, So Then . . . Stories.
And finally, at least for today, I got a great big kick out of reading Lynn’s work on her blog, The Nomad Mom Diary. She’s a Mississipian (sp?) now living and raising her children in Oxford, England and she has a brilliant sense of humor. You can follow her on Twitter as well, @NomadMomDiary.
The tweets and retweets come in fast and furiously sometimes and it gets a little hard to keep track of.
Particularly because I’ve reached the point of counting how many Valium I have left so I can try not to run out before they can give me anything else. If there is anyone I’ve left out, feel free to write me and give me an ass chewing. There are so many great people out there and so many great blogs, I’m sure that sidebar list is going to get quite full in a very short time. I’m sharing the love and I know they are too (CommentLuv is the GREATEST blog tool ever invented!) and that is how this whole thing works. I welcome the new additions and look forward to sharing more great posts and tweets with each and every one of them! Also, thanks to the “favorites” and “retweets” of these fine words of wisdom from the other night:
Just getting all that info and links and shit together took up a good portion of the day and you definitely should not see the totally fucked up notepad document that I put together to try to remember all those links and Twitter links and shit like that. Also, there was the half hour I spent trying to figure out what in the fuck @RageMichelle‘s Twitter account was. Put a Twitter link on that blog, Michelle!! It made me feel really good to have made all these new friends and connections and I really felt like some worthwhile networking got done. Which is good, because Jenny at TheBloggess emailed me back and well, she emailed me back and that’s a win in and of itself in my book so I’ll take it. I still haven’t heard back from George Takei and I can only assume it’s because he is reading my blog and laughing his ass off and hasn’t been able to respond. (Let me have the dream, ok?!)
And no, I still haven’t worked up the balls or the Valium dosage to try to get in touch with Pauley Perrette or Kate Micucci.
Beyond that, today was very similar to yesterday with only a couple of variations.
Things that were the same
- I still did not get the title to my car in the mail, although I did contact the bank and did find out when it was sent, so it should arrive soon.
- I still checked the blog stats obsessively.
- I was still disappointed and wished for more Valium.
- I still didn’t get the Clinical Psychologist job.
- I still checked for more Twitter followers (up to 23 now).
- Bella’s “blade of grass” ritual was still a pain in the ass.
- The cat is still a dick.
Things that were different
- My “free” personal business cards came in the mail today, so the mailbox hike wasn’t a complete waste.
- Attempts to call my psychologist, psychiatrist and primary physician to get more drugs or at least an appointment all got me absolutely nowhere.
- There was no NCIS marathon for me to find today, so it was Law & Order: SVU.
Oh, and I also found out that this doesn’t work . . .
This got me a half eaten bag of McDonald’s french fries and a stern warning from the Tampa Police Department that you can’t do that.
I’m just kidding.
I didn’t get any french fries.
I did find out (through Googling it, because seriously, I didn’t do this) that panhandling in Tampa IS ONLY PERMITTED ON SUNDAYS. So for future reference, only beg for money on the streets of Tampa on Sunday.
But I can let you know that there is a donation button over there on the sidebar if you want to help a veteran out. I’ll blog and blog and blog away. If you want the dancing like a white boy though, that’s gonna cost you quite a bit.
Oh, and I’ve not taken a Valium all day . . . so I can take the whole days worth later this evening.
And my doctor was worried that I wouldn’t be responsible with it.
Facebook post of the day goes to my new friend Kate from Can I Get Another Bottle of Whine!
