I hate to say it, because the intent is not to offend people, and I know just about everyone does this. But it's because everyone is doing it that I have to comment.
I've grown extremely weary of the whole "nobody reads my blog" premise. I think at least half of all the posts in blogdom say something to the effect of, "well no one is reading this crap, but I'm going to say it anyways ..." or "I'd send you some traffic but I don't think you'd miss me and my grandma."
Generally speaking I think too many bloggers have taken the whole geek-chic "I'm a loser" sensibility too far.
And I'm part of the problem. I've made jokes like that also. And afterwards I licked my fur and ate berries off a bush because I felt like a dirty baboon.
I know it's tough. Since joining the blog-ranks I've learned quickly that original sin is acting like the bully that used to pick on you in grade school.
But have some pride.
Your mom wants you to be humble. She doesn't want you to be a loser.
Thom Yorke is not actually a creep.
Lennon and McCartney are not actually losers.
They're rock-stars that made hit songs that inspire us to be ... more than a loser.
so herbs and herbettes, what have we learned today?
TAN is the greatest.
Larry has a blog.
And I've got to cut this short because there will be a million-woman-march if I don't have two posts up by the start of the business day
