I thought I would do a random tangent today, partially because I haven't done one in a very long time (about a year I think), and partially because I couldn't come up with anything solid I could write a full length post about*.
*I weenied out. The post that was supposed to be here originally was what Monday's post was all about. However, I chose to take the advice of one of my cherished blog readers, Joanne, by putting it on the back burner for a while. I haven't nuked it, just stuck a new future date on it.
Besides, you know you secretly like it when I string random nouns, verbs, adverbs, adjectives, bad punctuation, bad grammar, badly applied words and a overall general lack of cohesiveness and stick-to-your-ribs goodness to create something that really hurts the eyes.
Like encountering a happy peppy person on a bright sunshiny day the minute you wake up from an all night party of binge drinking, it will be just that bad.
1} Title disconnect. The title disconnect is still as bad as ever, as the title up above can attest to. I strung two of my favorite pop culture phrases together and I leave it up to you good people to figure out where I pulled it from.
2} Blog. In the past month or so, I've picked up five new followers (top row started from the left), each of which have a fascinating blog that is worth checking out. A couple of them I found to be so fascinating that I added them to my blog roll. In all honesty though, I have no idea as to why my blog got picked, except maybe that those people are simply looking to expand their network, which is a cool thing. The more the merrier, eh?
3} Facebook. As some of you are aware, I am on Facebook. While Facebook is a decent social network, the lack of security features makes it wickedly vulnerable to hack attacks, phish attacks and virus attacks. Every once in a while, I'll get a few warnings that people have posted saying basically don't accept X, Y or Z as a friend because this person is looking to steal personal info or infect your computer.
If you're like me, you don't go friending every single John, Ashley or Madison that happens to make a friend request of you. Just because someone who you don't know makes a friend request doesn't mean you should blindly accept it. If you blindly accept, then you deserve to have your computer taken away to be cleansed and disinfected. Oh, and you deserve to have your head stuck into a toilet for being such a Homer. Unflushed.
Boggles my mind that some people who probably are super careful with their personal info in the real world, act like a little toddler who got a shiny new present on Christmas day on Facebook.
4} Blogs (again). This time we're covering the writing aspect. The writing as of late has been stuck in the Mojave as no amount of pushing, pulling, cajoling, swearing or the threat of mental violence has been able to get it out of the Mojave and into the Andes Mountains (look, it's my post, so I don't have to be geographically smarter than a fifth grader, just a second grader).
However, the mechanic has come up with a baked-at-450-degrees-for-45-minutes-until-crispy-idea on how to get the muse unstuck from the Mojave. Stay tuned for further details as we create them.
5} Facebook (again). No rant this time, just want to show you how brain rot can make you one, post dopey things and two, post witty things with no thought of the consequences.
Posting a dopey status update: From Monday 6/28, "STI-CKY! And I don't mean in a-blowin'-your-load-after-frenetically-pounding-your-partner kind of way... "
Got no response from anyone on that
Posting a witty comment: Also from Monday 6/28, "When I get e-mails like that, due to my normal analytically toxic attitude when it come to dealing with stupid in all of its hideous forms, I usually pass it off to my supervisor...that way, she can mouth off without getting into trouble.."
Someone liked that
We have now come to the beginning portion of the ending, so in the words of that great African explorer, Captain Spaulding:
"I come to say that I must be going."
