Post Number Two (Heh-heh)

And we're back!

Okay, first thing's first. I appreciate all of you who took the time to comment on my last post. However, why did so many of you post as "anonymous"? You don't have to create an account to use your name. All you have to do is click on "other" under where it says "Choose an identity" and then simply type in your name. That would make it much easier for me as well as everyone else to figure out who you are.

Listen, I know some of you are worried that Dick Cheney and the Department of Homeland Security are going to come after you and take you away on a "nice Cuban vacation" if you post something using your real name. Others might be afraid some meth addict might steal your identity like those people with the funny voices on the TV commercial. No, not the commercial with the guy who yells at the top of his lungs about Oxi-Clean. I hate that guy!

But here's the deal: you don't have to put your real name if you don't want! You can call yourself clever names such as "bettiepagesbrassiere", "dances_with_elves_69", "Jimdude420fatee", "I_am_the_eggplant", "lush_rimball_4_u", "scatdaddyclevelandsteamer", "elemenopee", or whatever. And nobody has to know who you are.

The important thing is that you provide comments. I guess what I'm trying to say is that I don't want to have to do all the writing. It's just not fair: I do all the writing and you do all the reading. It's sort of like a marriage in which I bring home all the money and you spend it. A relationship like that can never last.

I know I talked about putting up some pictures of the new place, but then I realized I'd have to clean it first. So that might take a while. But I will, however, try to put up at least one picture of our house each time I post. You can see today's house pic by clicking here. Isn't it beautiful?

And now it's time for another episode of Rob's Bitch of the Day!

You know, writing can be really difficult. I mean, the human body wasn't meant to sit in a chair (no matter how padded), type on a keyboard (no matter how ergonomically designed), and stare at a monitor (no matter how state-of-the-art it is) for hours at a stretch. My back and neck sure are sore.

Thank you for tuning in to another episode of Rob's Bitch of the Day! Tonight's episode was sponsored by the "Buy Rob and Cathy a Hot Tub for Christmas Alliance", better known as BRACHTFCA. Let's take a preview of next week's episode, shall we?

Man, I'm cold. Too bad we don't have a large container with jets of hot, bubbly water to relax in.

Mark your calendars because you surely don't want to miss that one! See you next time, folks!

So anyway, I tried writing a book this summer. I should say I'm still trying to write a book, but it's sorta stalled right now. The big problem was that I spent most of this summer doing mindless work. This meant that I did a lot more thinking about the story than I did actually writing it. Now, that sounds great in principle because by the time I was ready to write, I should've known exactly what I was going to write because everything was already planned out. The problem was that every time I'd think about the story, I'd end up changing something, so that the stuff I'd already written didn't really work anymore without making lots of changes to it. So I ended up with a bunch of written pages, but none of it really worked together. Now I'm back in school, so the whole project is on hold for a while, and I'm doing this blog instead.

When I get a chance to go back and work on it some more, I'll just have to avoid thinking at all. This is where you, the viewer, choose the joke to follow "avoid thinking at all". I'll give you a few examples:

#1 ...I'll just have to avoid thinking at all. Hey, it works for the President! (buh-dump-siss!)

#2 ...I'll just have to avoid thinking at all. That's why they promoted me at my last job! (buh-dump-siss!)

#3 ...I'll just have to avoid thinking at all. Hey, it works for Congress! (buh-dump-siss!)

Maybe you can think of some of your own. That's what the comment section is for!

I think I'll end this post here. I'm not really good at wrapping things up, so I guess I'll just stop typing. After I sign my name. And type that last sentence. And that one too. These are actually sentence fragments. Except that last one. Ok, I'll stop.

This is creepy. You type EXACTLY like you talk. I can hear your voice when I am reading your blog. This is an unpleasant sensation. Try to type intelligently, this will differentiate it from the way you talk. Seriously, this is a great blog you got here...for me to poop on.
P.S. You should check out Beck's new album. It might be his best yet.

Oh, I see how it works around here. I have to get your APPROVAL before my comments are published for all to see. This is worse than Nazis. Man, I hate those guys.

Holy crap! Did the Repube-licans take it in the ass ow what?? On with the impeachment proceedings(CUE TRUMPETS AND FANFARE). Two states(SD and NV I think) and measures to legalize marijuana on their ballots. They failed, but both were 56-44. That is pretty damn close. All in all, a positive election. Now if we can just do something about all the homophobes....

Hey, Greg is here!

Of course I type like I talk. How weird would it be if I typed like you talk, or if I typed like Arnold Schwarzenegger talks? And no, I'm not going to try. It was bad enough trying to figure out how to spell his name.

Yes, I have the power supreme over comments. I wanted to keep spammers and assholes from posting. Should I change it? Right now, the blog is public and anyone can post pending my approval. I could make the blog exclusive. Or I could leave it public and do away with the approval part and then whatever gets posted gets posted. What do y'all think? I'm open to suggestions.

I agree about Beck (and also about hating Nazis). But I'm having a hard time deciding whether or not to use the stickers on the album cover (For those who have no idea what I'm talking about, the CD comes with a mostly blank insert and a bunch of stickers).

I doubt we'll see impeachment hearings, even though there should be a few. Heck, staining a dress is apparently all it takes to get one if you're a Democrat. But I think Bush will just be a lame duck for the rest of his term and won't be allowed to screw up this country any worse than it is. That's not to say the Democrats will be this country's savior, either. I'll believe impeachments when I see them.

I think the marijuana measures were in Nevada and Colorado. You're not thinking about moving again, are you?
