Your blog post naked pics of you on Twitter??? OH.MY! How in the world do you keep up with the fan tweets?

Mark said...

I think the time consuming thing can be the biggest problem for me. It's why even though my viewership has gone down a little, I don't want to go out and follow more blogs. I'm also yet to learn the truth of the JFK assassination. It's not that you did it right? Or is the Red Dwarf theory correct?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

That was hilarious? So what has your blog purchased from eBay?

Keetha Broyles said...

Ha! Great lists.

I'm still waiting for the celebrity thing to happen. said...

I'm still waiting for the potential one night stands to become real.


David P. King said...

Truth, though thankfully no naked pics sent (and to my knowledge, never taken). Besides, who would WANT to see that? :)

Sherry Ellis said...

Too funny! I'm still waiting for my star on the Hollywood walk of fame! LOL!

Baby Sister said...

I hate when my blogs orders things without asking. Although mine has never been ebay, just Amazon. And I hate spam. Hate hate hate the spam. Thanks for the laugh.

I guess I don't take my blogging duties seriously enough. For some serious bloggers it's a way of life, for others it's just this open scarp book.

Ella said...

lol You are so funny! And you see Bigfoot all over internet ;D
Thanks for dropping some powder over my way!

I know exactly what you mean. My blog is a cheating whore--always out and about with some cheap blog I haven't even heard of.

But then it's sorry and it's so sweet for a couple weeks. I just keep believing things can be different. I tell myself nobody is perfect. Besides, I like when it surprises me with ebay gifts. ;)

And do your Wordpress friends try to seduce you over to the dark side and give up blogger?

I knew I was blogging for some reason; I just hadn't figured out what those reasons were. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

#3 #9 are definitely why I do this day in and day out! Whew! Glad that's settled.

That explains why I have been receiving deliveries of tins of spam and stray cats (Damn my blog for making those orders). As for the imminent Zombie Apocalypse I had not even been aware of it up until now….. what’s the betting that my one night stand with a hot celebrity will turn out to be a run through the streets chased by cold zombies (not exactly the orgy I had been planning) . As for improving my writing skills I think I have just been expelled from kindergarten….. I started out at a masters level…

Con: my wife wants a divorce.
Pro: over my dead body.
