Stuff ta keep ya busy.

After a summer hiatus, the newsletter of the Brigaded Blogs of Canadians Militant returns! The Red Ensign Standard, number 28!

The Confederate Yankee takes on Human Rights Watch.

Heh. You can only jump the shark so many times before even the Kossacks will bite! Angry in the Great White North peers into Kossacks vs Sheehan. H/t, Confederate Yankee.

Barb finally checks in... from Venice.

Carnival of the Recipes!

Kommonist Kitty Kommissars!

Hmmmm. I might have to look into one of these...

This one's for FbL and AFSis (scroll down, those who know, will understand, for the rest of ya - Good Gun Pr0n!)

Ahem. *Speaking of Fuzzybear Lioness* (Hairy eyeball)

She slimed us with a meme. That she got slimed with by AFSis. Fine, in deference to Denizens, I'll play - but I won't pass the contagion on. Plllpppppt!

But I won't make you read it if you don't want to. It's in the Flash Traffic/extended entry.

1. Do you try to look hot when you go to the grocery store just in case someone recognizes you from your blog? If we count "look hot" as "sweaty fat man in a hot and humid environment walking across asphalt parking lot in a 103-degree heat" you betcha!

2. Are the photos you post Photoshopped or otherwise altered?
What photos? Y'mean, like this? Though that was really just the scru'pls!

3. Do you like it when creeps or dorks email you?
I rarely email myself, unless it's a kewl URL from work or something.

4. Do you lie in your blog?
No, it's just pixels on a screen. Not very comfortable to lie on.

5. Are you passive-aggressive in your blog?
See #4.

6. Do you ever threaten to quit writing so people will tell you not to stop?
No, I threaten to quit because I'm overwhelmed. But that damn ego keeps interfering with that plan.

7. Are you in therapy?
Who are you talking to? They're talking to us! Shut up! Back in your hole, you!

8. Do you delete mean comments?
Nope. Just edit them to make the commenter look really dumb - unless, of course, they've done that exquisitely well themselves - but most mean commenters aren't terribly creative. I do edit some of the profanity to keep the Castle out of "net nanny" banned lists. When things start to get personal I usually intervene and give everyone the Hairy Eyeball and they behave. For all the exposure the Castle has, it's not very attractive to trolls, for some reason. Helk, SWWBO gets more trolls than we do.

9. Have you ever rubbed one out while reading a blog?
Heh. How gurl izzis question? Nope. Don't read those kinds of blogs, where are they?

10. If your readers knew you in person, would they like you more or like you less?
Ask the ones who have.

11. Do you have a job?

12. If someone offered you a decent salary to blog full-time without restrictions, would you do it?
Heh. I don't think you understand my salary requirements.

13. Which blogger do you want to meet in real life?
All the as-yet-unmet Denizens, and some others.

14. Which bloggers have you made out with?
Heh. *That* would be telling.

15. Do you usually act like you have more money or less money than you really have?
I act like me. We *live* like we have more money than we do.

16. Does your family read your blog?
Absent SWWBO, no.

17. How old is your blog?
Fresh content almost every day!

18. Do you get more than 1000 page views per day?

19. Do you have another secret blog in which you write about being depressed, slutty, or a liar?
Yes, I mean, No!

20. Have you ever given another blogger money for his/her writing?
Nope. We've given money for hardship, plane tickets, and guns. SWWBO might have, but I don't tip to keep people writing. I know they're driven to anyway. That doesn't mean I won't help 'em out for other things.

Yes, I said guns. Yer welcome, Jeff!

21. Do you report the money you earn from your blog on your taxes?
Um, that would require *earning* it. Hell, I haven't even made enough off of merchandise to get a check from Cafe' Press yet. See why I worked in government and am now a contractor-parasite? No sense for business at all.

22. Is blogging narcissistic?
The answer to that is self-evident.

23. Do you feel guilty when you don't post for a long time?
Yes. See #6

24. Do you like John Mayer?
I don't like any a$$hole who demands I turn off pop-up blockers to get into his site to check out who-the-helk he is to answer this silly question. This is another one of those gurl questions, ainit?

25. Do you have enemies?
Yep. And some of them still walk this earth, only because a cease-fire went into effect.

26. Are you lonely?
Nope. Even when SWWBO's gone, there's 8 cats and 3 dogs here. And there's you guys, in a weird way.

27. Why bother?
Good question - the author should ask themself that question.
