Private Life? What's That?
Whoa. I have been Tweeting more than I have blogged of late. I admit it's mostly because I'm lazy and Twitter is easier. Yeah there's a lot more competition but the feedback, (or not) is instantaneous. The downside is I have to be quicker and limit my comic genius to 140 characters or less.
As a man of very little character that's quite a challenge.
I was attempting a parody of "Once Upon A Time" the last couple posts but the magic just wasn't there. I have been experiencing some difficulty getting it together to create posts so as I look at my blog I see these huge gaps full of nothingness.
And you know what they say about nothingness. It's barely noticeable. I could use the whole thing as a reflection of my life so far but that's exactly what I've been doing the past 5 years.
Yes the 5 year anniversary of The HumorSmith Chronicle came and went with nary a whimper, and I'm fine with that. I don't mind anniversaries and birthdays but I'm damned if I will ever succumb to the pitiful low of perpetrating that abominable mashup of the words "blog" and "anniversary" upon you my family of readers. I hate that word and in fact the last person who used it I went immediately over to their house and punched them in the wiener. The word is way too cutesie poo for me.
As I said I am fine with noting the passage of the years but I refuse to get cute about it. Unless it's a word I coined and that's entirely different.
Oh and earlier today an NBA player came out of the closet and immediately received praise from Obama and the Worst Lady. I mention this because I cannot get over the fact that people coming out about their sexuality is not only newsworthy but Presidential phone call-worthy.
So since the Chronicle prides itself on not only never being first with anything, but also being a loyal follower of trends rather than a setter of same, I am announcing my raging hetero status and I am proud and unashamed.
I should be getting that White House phone call any minute now.....
