Well, so much for my ‘all-weekend slug’ imitation.
(‘Slug imitation’ meaning that I was planning on doing absolutely nothing all weekend — like a slug.
As opposed to crawling through the garden, avoiding salt, and leaving a slime trail whereever I go — like a slug. Although, I did leave a little trail of something on the way to the shower this morning. Not sure what the hell it was, but I’m sure the dog will lick it up for me. That’s what she’s there for, right?)
Anyway, against my will, I was pressed into work this morning when some coalition of cock-knocking cretins out there came up with a new ‘spamment’ URL that my MT-Blacklist didn’t know about, and left seventy — that’s right; seven-oh — porny-assed ‘comments’ in my inbox overnight. Grrrrr, bitches. Very grrrr.
It took me a while to clean them out — and to ban twenty or so of their IP addresses from ever darkening my comment box again — but I did it. And, I figured, as long as I’m here, why not tinker a bit with the site. So, I added in a few of my upcoming comedy shows to the sidebar over there on the left.
(No, genius — your other left. Sheesh.
Seriously, though, if you’re in the Boston area, come on out and see a show. I can’t guarantee that you’ll love it and ask me to sign your boobs or anything, but it’s always a good time, there’s always beer, and the comics and assorted crowd members generally stay up until the wee hours chatting and boozing and generally making asses of ourselves.
So you’re fairly likely to meet somebody who’s gonna be famous someday. It’s just probably not me. But I’ll still buy you a beer for coming out — hell, you can’t afford not to show up, eh?)
Anyway, check out the schedule, and mark your calendars. Or don’t. I can’t tell you people what to do.
In other thrilling, tantalizing blog template news, I added a new cross-blogination ad type of thingy at the bottom of the page, and moved the BlogExplosion and Site Mojo thingies down there, too. I’m not sure they’ll stay like that — it looks a little funny, and I’m not terribly impressed with the new ad gizmo — but if you’re interested in such things, then knock yourself out. I mention it mainly just to pad the size of this post.
(Ain’t I a stinker?)
Finally, a reminder that today is the very most lastest day to get in your nominations for the Wizbang 2004 Weblog Awards. Again, if you’re into that sort of thing. Nominate your faves, nominate yourself — hell, nominate this guy, if you want. It’s not important who you pick, really — the important thing is that you spend a minute or two entertaining yourself, quite possibly at someone else’s expense. Isn’t that what life’s all about?
All right, that’s it for now — I’ll be back later in the day with real content of some kind or other… just as soon as I make some shit up to embellish my boring-ass Sunday. See you then.
Afternoon Update: Apparently, I just can’t stop. Somebody help me. I just added another fifty or so Simpsons quotes to the revolving thingy at the top of the page.
(You can see all the quotes — and just how much fricking time I’ve spent watching episodes and writing the damned things down — on the main Simpsons quote page.)
Okay, that’s really it this time for the updates. This isn’t spring fucking cleaning time, people. I’m gonna have a beer or three, to make sure that’s the end of it. Peace.Permalink | No Comments
