it's funny...

actually, it's not funny at all, to be perfectly honest.

last night i was sitting at the computer, checking out the blogs that i follow, and making comments.
so i read the the first one and cant think of anything intelligent or funny to say. then something remotely witty dawns on me. think a little more. still cant think of anything else. so i type it in and hit the button. ok. that sucked. on to the next one. same thing happens. again. only the comment is even more lame. then it happens around 10 times in a row and it dawns on me that i haven't said anything funny or witty all night.
thats not a terribly good feeling. it's kind of like blog-block but it seems worse. i mean, if you're not gonna post yourself, at least have something half decent to say on someones elses blog.

for crying out loud...

maybe i'll come up with something when i read your blog.
yes.
i'm talking about yours.

Hell, I'm not proud. I'm into volume. That's right: quantity over quality. Whatever you've got, I'll take it; silly, amusing, boring, sad, self-indulgent (wait, that's me), or whatever. Bring it!

CG - it only sucks when its myself. everyone elses comments (including yours) seem to be perfectly funny and insightful.

CK - thats what i'll have to believe...

IB - LOL. you got it pal. i'll keep bringing it. then you can start a very profitable sod farm.

Seeing someone comment on my blog is just like getting money in the mail...always a pleasant surprise!
(Gosh, I hope that was witty...)
:)

I hate it when that happens. Worse, though, is when you say something you THINK is witty, hit 'publish', then re-read it... only to find out it wasn't witty at all... and you sound like a moron. Then you're stuck... do you delete it? Do you leave it? I usually leave it (I'm lazy... sue me). So, I'm guessing there's a big portion of the Internet that thinks I'm a moron. Sadly, I don't have a huge problem with that. And what does THAT say about me?

diane - i'll have my lawyer on that in a jiffy.
for my money, the only time i'll delete a comment i posted is when it's so pathetic in terms of spelling that my second grade teacher would be embarassed. sounding like a moron is not a good enough reason. for obvious reasons.
it says that you dont give a tinker's damn. which is good.

Jess said...

Ahhh, such is life. I killed some more brain cells last night with excessive amounts of adult barley beverages, so I have nothing witty to say either!

jess - fear not. you'll be fresher than springtime in about 13 hours.

goodfather said...

Cinnamon said...

Hey, that's okay. We're just happy to get the comment love.

ChurchPunkMom said...

i can relate.. hell, i've even stooped to the level of 'ChurchPunkMom was here'.. how lame is that??

SweetPeaSurry said...

I think that post was pretty witty, so perhaps that makes up for your lack of wit in blopping? I would say so.

I stumbled across ye blog via another blog, I'm kind of addicted to blogging and blopping. Hope ya don't mind! :)

Michelle said...

I'll admit it. I'm a comment whore. I'll take 'em wherever I can get 'em. I have no shame.
(Uh... way to introduce myself to your blog... oops. Oh well, gotta be me ;) )
Random thought: Sometimes the word verification for comments on blogger is just plain weird... "ballmen"?

michelle with a "J" - i know. i am god. and it feels SOOOOOOO good. actually i'm not. just wanted to clear that misconception up real quick.

cinamon - all you need is (comment) love. love, love, love.

CPM - sounds like cool graffiti actually.

sweetpea - i dont know what blopping is. i'm still working on the blogging thing. but i'm new around here. in due time perhaps i shall. thanks for stopping by and for yer kind words.

michelle - love the intro:) we all take it any way we can. blog-comment-wise i mean...
and ballmen isnt the worst i've had to type in. by any stretch of the imagination. i actually wish i knew how to cut and paste those things. they would make a great blog by themselves. just post the word verification and nuff said.
i need to become more tech savvy...
