"Shucks, folks ... I'm speechless."

You know what's weird?

Getting praised on the internet by total strangers. Right now, over on Essential Day Spa (I think) this completely lackluster piece of shit blog* has just been called "hilarious."

Which makes me feel ... I don't know ... kind of dumb. Because I'm a discerning reader, and I know funny when I read it. Badger is funny, for example.

So now I'm thinking I should register on the site so I can demur. And tell them to go over to see Badger instead. And I don't want to do that, because what the hell-- readers are readers, even if I'm getting them under false pretenses.

Also, to tell the truth, I'm really not a spa person, unless the masseuse or facialist promises to duct-tape her mouth shut. Oh, and to turn off that idiotic New Age music they're always playing. So how much do I want to go join a spa forum? To tell them not to read my blog? Not much.

So, I'm grateful for the plug. But I just don't feel hilarious. I'm ... wait for it ... funny that way.

* Albeit with--OK, I'll say it--great punctuation. OK, I know that sounds really egotistical, but it's true. There's no point in going all false modesty about it; I am the Princess of Punctuation. I mean, did you see that semi-colon back there? Well, stick with me and you'll be strewing semi-colons around like Jackson Pollack on crack.

  2. I wish you had told me you weren't funny sooner, I would have refrained from laughing.

  3. Feel free to pimp me anytime; howevah, I contend that you are TOO hilarious. You just appeal to a very well-defined demographic. And apparently people in that demographic like a nice facial now and then. It's nothing of which to be ashamed. DON'T JUDGE ME.
