Mood:  accident prone
Topic: Casino Avenue

Um, sorry. I will blog today. Honest.

I know it's half two in the afternoon, but I've been busy, I've been crapper on every possible front than anyone will ever believe (involving the bright idea of blogging in the visitor's books of aristocratic houses, and culminating in me wandering, bedraggled, into museums in central London and asking the security chap to listen to my story and find me a sister), and I only just woke up, an all.

Although, after all my pontificating about blogs, community, netiquette, cliques and honesty, some things have made me laugh. The hordes of cliquey comments on here, for one (yay).
That fabulous blog I found that's been going for two weeks, and likes to blog which blogs have been getting shit lately and are evicted from his favourites, for two. I quote from Jessica Asche, Will You Marry Me:

Have you noticed that when a blogger gets a book deal, their blog instantly sucks?

Dropped from my bookmarks today: this and this and this and this.
Several others are in danger of being dropped soon.
(Me and tittybiscuit are both in decline, apparently, although unlike me, tittybiscuit actually made his links in the first place - but notice also that we both supercede Noam Chomsky in the list of doom; way to go, hon).
Now that's the sort of pisstaking honesty I like in a blog. Jessica Asche, marry me, not him.

What I particularly love about my new, hyper cool, hyper fun, hyper funky, site meter, though, is the musical live time alerts of who's reading the blog. And it turns out the Travelling Welshman is still with us after all. Coooee!

More later. We swearsssss.

Oh yeah, I think he was spot on in all his observations. Where is Raed is more shit than Belle though.

far be it from me to criticise other bloggers - but sheesh - posting that you've dropped them seems a tad extreme.

But don't worry - you're still in *my* list.

No, I think it reduces 'approval' to its appropriate context.

Sorry. I'm a @#%$!. I just list the comings and goings from my bookmarks list to show how fickle I am.

Maybe if you would post more links to Internet quizzes I would like you more. I mean, what Film Noir classic are you? What Mesozoic-age creature are you? These are important aspects of your personality that you are refusing to explore.

Yeah. @#%$!. Fickle drunken monkey @#%$!. And I can't even draw a horse.

Nah, I thought it was good. :D

I cringed as I read this, because the truth hurts.
I have links on my sidebar that I would love to remove--but they link to me and I'm too chicken s--t to delete them.
If I were being honest though, my sidebar would look a tad different.
You always give me something to ponder, Vanessa.

Yeah, I do like the precedent Owain's site sets up, actually - giving warning seems a more truthful thing to do. And if anyone's not blogging for approval, well, they won't mind if it's not given, will they?
Hell, I'm too chickenshit myself to do it, but.... admiration points to Owain!
