Not A Real Update...

...Though I'd planned an entry; suffice to say, things didn't work out (I didn't even update my other blog tonight, and most of that shit's already written), but maybe I'll be able to finish the post tomorrow morning (if the fuckers at work will get off my back about doing my "job"). So let me do just a couple shout-outs:

1. News flash!: Not all Entertainment Weekly letter writers are stupid monkeys!
Finally, one of them responds to an entry of mine without coming off like a whiny loser. She posted her comment here, and proved conclusively that even people who read trashy magazines are capable of possessing a sense of humor about themselves and using their brains for purposes other than watching TV. See, the difference between most of these correspondents and me (and no, it's not that I'm so much smarter than they) is that if some random blogger I didn't know personally attacked me in (cyber-)print, I wouldn't give a shit. I might even find it funny. In fact, anybody who wants to start a website dedicated to how much I suck and write scathing pieces about my proclivity for raping kittens or whatever, be my guest. Frankly, strangers' opinions of my worth as a human being stopped mattering to me in 9th grade. Kimberly would appear to be made of similar stuff, and it's heartening to see she didn't take my attack personally and got the (admittedly caustic) joke. So I thank you, madam, for responding in a witty fashion, and to answer your question (Who should play me in the biopic of your life), I think you'll agree there is but one clear-cut choice: Jeremy Piven.

2. Moo!
I'm sure I'm the last one in this hemisphere to become aware of this, but on the off chance you haven't seen it yet, this is quite possibly the funniest thing on all the internets. Oh, in theory, it sounds like it should be the lamest, most uninspired pile of worthlessness ever, but I was literally crying from laughing so hard at the absurdity of it all. Trust me, if you like this here blog, the humor's right up your alley.

And now, I am spent.

I figured that anyone who would title his blog with a Heathers quote couldn't be all bad. Mostly bad, sure, but not all bad.

I was stung by the According to Jim thing most of all, but I am (mostly) over it.

Now, if you'll excuse me, my brain and I are due for a little tv time. Ah, tv time. Glorious . . . I totally forgot what I was saying.

P.S. (Can you 'p.s.' on a blog? Why the heck not?) Leave the kittens alone!

Thanks for the link to G-G...I also laughed my ass off at the absurdity of this project!

Look at me, here again like some kind of crazy lady, but I just had to throw in my cent-and-a-half regarding Garfield Minus Garfield. Hilarious and insane. Oh, and addictive.
Like your own blog.
Now, I have to go. Entertainment Weekly doesn't just read itself.

Yes, the best way to read Garfield Minus Garfield is to wait at least a week or so between checking it out, so you have somewhat of a backlog built up when you go back. There's a cumulative effect that works better than reading a strip a day.

Thanks for the kind words. Oh, and as you'll notice, I "p.s." on my blog all the time, so that makes it legitimate.

G-G is okay, but I think the previous incarnation of this concept in which Garfield is still there but completely silent works much better. *shrug*
