I Blogged Myself

Why do you always come here? I guess we'll never know. It's like a kind of torture, To read this blog, y'know.

Welcome to the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational blog since Kermit left just a little bit of the swamp in his pants.

Have I Lost My Sparkle?

I'm wondering if people are getting tired of me.

Are you, my people?

It's true that I've been battling to find time to complete (and post) the next couple of parts to my TV Addiction multi-post, but work has been very heavy at the moment, and my supervisor can see my screen from where she sits, so spending heaps of time on the blogosphere has been impossible. I promise I'll get to those posts when I can, and in the meantime, I'm trying to be as zany as I always was. But maybe I'm kidding myself. I want you to let me know.

I'm giving you free range to say what you like about me (anonymously if you wish).

I'm thinking along the lines of whether this blog has become stale and unfunny and lacks inspiration ... but if you want to dish out unrelated insults, feel free to do that too.


Let the public flogging begin!!

To tell you the truth I never really liked it to begin with.

Okay, looks like the silent back lash has begun. I'll push it along for you.

I've really enjoyed most of your posts. The muppet stuff is a little out of my interest circle, but we can't all be clones. I like the stuff you put up, the pics are great, the TV posts are great and full of memories.

PS: what you need is an RSS reader at work. You can keep an eye on all your favourite blogs without having to get into them. It tells you when they have updated and being in plain black and white text, it looks like you are reading e-mails or in a word processor. Good for the work environment. If you don't already have one, Feedreader is a good'un.

we love you!! or i do anyway.

imagine that scene in blues brothers, the horrible cabaret place when they are finding all the old band members to put the band back together. and there's the line, "don't go changing" [then the wrinkle of the nose]

this is what i want to say. don't go changing.

it's just the time of year. everyone is madly busy i think. i know i am and can't blog as much.

but the love and adoration remains my friend.


don't go changing [nose wrinkle]

I'll second melby and add this:

It's a blog not your life. If you don't have time to post then don't feel you have to. I know that I tend to feel unsparkly when I blog because I feel I should not because I really want to.

*cue corny muzac*

We love you just the way you are.


*gets out lighter*

screw all this namby pamby crap. i think you should cut and run. just ditch the blog and dedicate more of your life and creativity to your job.

you know you want to.

(and you know she's not actually looking at your screen - she's too busy causing trouble to care what you do.)

Get back to work. I'm not paying you to sit around and enjoy life. I'm paying you to be miserable. Stop blogging and start doing some push-ups. Or bullying your workmates. Or something else unpleasant.

That's it - you now have an official warning. No, make that two (the other one was... delivered... to you... without your knowledge... ahem).

It's 4U're own good.

That's it.

We could never tire of our Bevis.

Honey, I'm biased. I hear more about you when you blog and I don't have to worry about trying not to have my drink go up my nose, as I sometimes have to in person, while laughing at your comicality. This stuff is a lot like the newsletters you used to send out and I enjoy reading, or catching up on what I have missed while I've been busy with my head down at work (and unable to update my own blog).

A persons blog is about them and what the heck they want to put on it. In short, I'm sure you're not too worried what other peoples opinions are of your interests, so screw em all and put up whatever you want on YOUR blog.

Bevis its about you!!! and another tip, you can blog via email (just if you don't know already)

Jobe/Bevis, Your blog should be like a little door in your brain where you get to chuck out all the unwanted clutter....or something. What Melbourne Girl said. Don't go changing. Don't write for your audience, we don't pay you enough (or anything) for you to feel like you should entertain us. It's all about you. Don't become your blog. Wow that sounded deep. Gotta love Vodka.

I pay him. I often wonder if I'm getting value for money.

He said that I HAD to pay. You mean.. you guys don't have to?

At Monday, December 05, 2005 8:05:00 am, Blogger Adam said...

I pay him $70 per post. Is that the rate you're on Jobe? I used to pay $50 to Jobe per post and I'm sure this is the reason he started churning out 7 posts per night.

Bevis, I would like to see more posts about me. Maybe you could make a documentary about me and then write about that. That would be freakin' awesome reading!

Well, that was relatively painless. Frankly, I expected more scathing anonymous comments than that, but either way is fine with me.

OK, I'll be returning to my regular chirpy self later today (I still have some glumness scheduled for this morning, but after that my calendar's clear), so expect something then.

Well done and thanks to those of you who said lovely things (or who politely chastised me) along the lines of "do whatever you want".

Jobe and Adam, my rate has just gone up to an even $100 per post. Deal with it.

And thanks Clokeeeey and Sheriff of Nothing for the tips on RSS readers and posting by email. I knew nothing of either of these and will be looking into them. Cheers!

BTW. I hereby tag thee with a Mememememememememe!

It was ok until you referred to us as 'your people'.

Thanks Steph - I'm honoured, and will get to it ASAP! :)

Djali - ouch, sorry about that.
