Howdy, friendly reading person!
I'm on a bit of a hiatus right now, but only to work on other projects -- one incredibly exciting example being the newly-released kids' science book series Things That Make You Go Yuck!
If you're a science and/or silliness fan, give it a gander! See you soon!

Some ‘Forward Thinking’ for a Monday Afternoon

Hey, boys and girls.

Well, our good friend Buzz has decreed today the fourth… um, commemorative Blog It Forward Day.

(Wait, no, that’s not right. It doesn’t ‘commemorate’ anything, as far as I can tell. What the hell would it be? It’s not ‘annual‘. ‘Periodic’? ‘Pseudomonthual’? ‘Nearly random’? Whatever. Let’s just move on, shall we?)

So, who to pick, who to pick? So many juicy sites on the ol’ blogroll… ooh, I know. Let’s do this one:

Shelley at Cynical: A Life is way cool, very clever, and too funny. She’s also — if you can believe my Technorati report — the second person ever who was nice enough to link to me!

(That was a whole 194 days ago, and she got beat out by less than an hour by J of J’s Notes. And he’s pretty damned cool, himself — go have a looksee!)

(Ed. Note, 03/14/03: That was back on the BlogSpot site… but Shelley was still one of the first ten to re-link me once I moved. How cool is that?)

Anyway, back to Shelley. I love her dry wit, the way she crafts a story — her long posts crack me up! — and she even (occasionally) mentions boobies. Or just boobs. Or glands. *gulp*

Add to that her two-plus years of archives, way-cool design, and the fact that I might just get to meet her this weekend… and there you have my Blog It Forward choice for today. So go give Shelley some love, and tell her that Charlie sent you. Or Buzz, since he’s sort of responsible, too. Or hell, just lie, and say that you found her all by yourself, if you want. Ungrateful bastards.

But the important thing is that you go — go on, shoo. Go see Shelley. I’m done here, and I won’t be back until tonight. Nothing more to see here; move along to Cynical: A Life for all of your Monday mid-afternoon comedic needs. I’ll catch up to you later. Bye, now!

(What? No… no, get out of here. Look, I’m just turning out all the lights, and sweeping up the place. Really, show’s over. There’s no encore, or anything. Get outta here before I release the dogs, all right? Seriously. Go. Don’t you people have homes?)

    I went. I saw. And Shelley isn’t nearly as good as you. Besides, she doesn’t seem to have you linked on her site anymore.

  2. Amy says:

    He’s under “weekly-ish reads”… not that you need to know how to find this place anyway :-P

  3. Got here by way of Nef. I must say, you really crack me up. I will certainly be back.

  4. shelley says:

    Aw, thanks, Charlie! You’s da bestest. And I most certainly have you linked. In fact, not to sound like I’m fawning or anything, but your blog contains the best and bar-none funniest content in all the blogiverse, if you ask me. (Please don’t tell my sister I said so, though.) If only I had the time to read all your posts! If only I had the time you apparently have for posting to read your blog, never mind the others I enjoy perusing! If only I had your alleged job!

    And finally, Lisa’s right. I’m nowhere as funny as you. Funny *lookin’*, that is.
