Guess what?  I just figured out that this whole write a post in November thing is not an original idea thought up by Jen that was then copied by Speaker which was then copied by me (and several others).  Turns out that WordPress is talking about it like it’s some sort of thing, like, you know, my idea of writing a novel in a month or whatever.  Good thing that’s not taken.

They’re calling it NaBloPoMo which is not nearly as cool as Honey Boo Boo whatsit or Blogvemberfester, or whatever our name was.  NaBloPoMo sounds like the sound I make when I eat too much Taco Bell and have to go throw up.

Well, now I’m just bummed, because here I thought Jen (of Jen and Tonic!) had this fabulous idea and like, she and Speaker (of Speaker7!) and I were sort of The Three Musketeers.  Not the candy bar, the three guys with the matching smocks and the swords.  Only we’d be the three gals and have way better fashion sense.   But now that’s all gone to hell.  Thanks a lot, WordPress, for ruining what was left of my innocence after 50 Shades destroyed 95 percent of my soul.

The three musketeers . . . wait a minute.

But all is not lost.  You see, WordPress and . . . wtf, BlogHer is doing this too?  What?  We’re in with the mommy bloggers?  Crap in a hat, guys.  Nevermind.  We are still original here, because most of these people have rules and stuff for their blog challenges.  Like that there should be real posts or something.  At least I’m guessing that because WordPress is a pain like that.  You know, like don’t try to bait us to your blog by putting the crappy challenge du jour in your tags.  Killjoys.

But we laugh in the face of rules.  We say “vagina” and call senators “turdface”.  We write posts without pictures of food or recipes for cookies.  We put little balloons over photos and have politicians tell everyone they’re tools.  We explain why people are stupid and vote stupidly (not that I’m saying how you should vote or anything but for crying out loud not Republican).  We put squirrels in our posts.  We review idiot books about buttplugs.  This is edgy stuff, guys.

That’s right, WordPress.  We’re a team.  Well, except I don’t have my blue sticker yet.  I just thought I’d point that out, since you seem to have not noticed my blog out of the bazillions of other blogs.  Sad Pony is sad about this.  He told me I should put a My Little Pony horsehead™ in your inbox.  He’s been through a lot, sorry.

Anyway, there was a point here.  I forget.  Crap.  Look at that!  Squirrel!

  1. NaBloPoMo sounds like a sandwich you can get a state fair.

    1. Which would have the same effect as the Taco Bell, I’m sure.

    2. Hmm – sounds kind of delicious.

      And I think I’m sad that I apparently cannot expect cookie recipes… *siiiiiiiiiigh*

      1. Well, I could give you one, but it would be from the Pillsbury Dough Log wrapper which I think is technically considered a no-no, at least if they find out. Cookies sound good.

  2. Love the Taco Bell sound reference. Sounds like a PoBoy sammich to me, and every time I see a Nanowrimo post, I think of Mork and Mindy. Nanoo nanoo…

    1. Hey, me too! Ah, Mork. Back when Robin Williams was only mildly insane.

  3. Of course, I love the squirrel.

    1. The squirrel has been really awesome filling in for Sad Pony.

  4. I’m a little sad-faced. I thought you, Speaker and Jen had become blogging pioneers, gone where no blogger has gone before and planted a flag. Squirrel makes it a little better. Oh, and please don’t kill My Little Pony.

    1. I know. It’s like when I first visited Austin, and I planted a flag, and turned out, someone else had already claimed it. Can you believe that? And here I put down my flag and everything. I was going to rename it AliceLand.

      I keep telling Sad Pony to stop looking at My Little Pony that way.

  5. You are hilarious even when you don’t have a point!
    Hey the squirrel is back! I love that guy.

    1. Thank you! Good thing, since I rarely have a point. Thank goodness for squirrel – he’s a good distraction.

  6. You are crazy, randomly funny! My Little Pony horsehead…genius!

    1. Thank you. Although Barbie heads are actually much easier to pop off. My friends and I used to do that because we were too lazy to change our Barbies’ clothes.

  7. Is there an original thought left to be had in this world? Doubtful!

    1. I am a true original. First off, who else could have ever thought of my name, huh? Totally original.

  8. I don’t have a blue sticker yet either!! So how about We’re still in the cool kids club??

    1. I like that idea. If you go over to Clown on Fire he has a sticker that says “Not Freshly Pressed” from back when he was a rebel instead of selling out to The Man. 😀

  9. That wretched squirrel gets everywhere, doesn’t it?

    1. Yes! Once it got in my boss’s office and maintenance chased it around and grabbed its tail and tore all the fur off the tail before catching it. Then they’d see it around, this hairless tailed squirrel, and they knew that was the offiical library squirrel. Wait, okay, that must have been his cousin or something.

  10. Crap in a hat, Killjoy! My God!! What do they think they’re doing is right? Whazzup? Where’s the sad pony? You guys need a name for your club. That’s what I think. Oh, and a badge maybe for your club.

    1. I should totally ask Jen, who is master of coming up with band names. Like “Careless Butt Whisperer.” Also, according to her latest post, we are all lesbians, so that might be an excellent name. Except I don’t really want to whisper to anyone’s butt. I will have to think more on this.

      And yes, someone needs to make a badge.

      1. Hey, I know…what about a contest?! You know, to come up with your name.
