The site that inspired the book!

At LET'S PANIC ABOUT BABIES, Eden Kennedy and I share our hard-won wisdom and tell you exactly what to think and feel and do, whether you're about to have a baby or already did and don't know what to do with it. →

I’m funny! Ha! HAAAAA! Ha? Heh.

For reasons I can’t imagine, apparently I have been nominated for “Most Humorous Blog” honors by these kind people. Go figure. Upon hearing this I promptly curled up in a dark corner and muttered “Must be funny… mustn’t disappoint my audience…” And I thought up all kinds of laff-tastic entries that would prove just how funny I can be, proving only that I am desperately unfunny when the pressure’s on.

Anyway, I’m not winning, so I command thee to go forth and vote. I didn’t want to say anything, but those other blogs? They all have syphilis.*

(Normally I’m not one to toot my own bloggy horn, but last time I said nothing, and then--disgrace. Penury. Death. I won’t let it happen again, damn it.)

Also, today is National De-Lurking Day.


So sayeth Sheryl of the delightful Paper Napkin, and I do whatever other bloggers tell me to do. So say hello. Now. I think this is a bank holiday, too, so you can all go home from your jobs. They’ll tell you that if you leave you’ll be fired, but that’s all part of the holiday hijinks.

*Also, before you think, "Hey, syphilis! I wonder what that looks like!" and do a Google image search for syphilis, I warn you--DO NOT DO A GOOGLE SEARCH FOR SYPHILIS. I was hoping to link to some humorous cautionary poster, and instead saw--well, never you mind. It must never be spoken of. (Wow.)

Reader Comments (94)

I don't get lurking. I figure that if someone takes the time to write on a blog they're going to want some to comment on it. So I have never lurked. Especially since it drives me crazy when no one comments on my site.

Anyway, I think you're hilarious so I will be voting for you. Congrats on the nomination.

Didn't look up syphillis but I had to see the "mumu" image someone above mentioned.

Isn't the internet a wonderful thing?

I also posted about porn cookies on my site and didn't remember where I found the link. Was it some random find or was it from here? You are making me second guess myself, indeed!

Anyway, I am an avid reader and I am DE-LURKING.

Hi, just commenting. :)
January 7, 2005 | Unregistered CommenterJemma
OK, de-lurking on command! I've been reading for about a year now and I don't think I've ever commented, so I guess it's only fair.

Oh, wait, yes I did. When you wrote about the waterbug/cockroach/palmetto bug/whatever the hell it was. Being a Florida native and thus intimately familiar with the beasts, I couldn't resist.

So I guess this isn't a de-lurking after all, but hello anyway! :)

Have been reading your blog for a little while now. You have a way of making me feel like I should be awarded the least funny consolation prize. Good luck with the award thingy

Wow, you apparently have a lot of lurkers. I'm a bit behind on my blog rounds, and I can't remember if I've ever commented here or always lurked, but hello. I'm Liz. I enjoy your site. :)

I have commented before but just wanted to post here to up your count. I voted for your blog but...I just can't commit to the "every day vote" thing. I'm sure that there are those out there that will here's hoping the lifeless freaks like you best!
