Journey to the Valley of the Bored

It is not possible to be more bored than I am right now. Bored. I really shouldn’t post this. Ahhh, whatever, your readers are bored too. Bored at work. Staring at work they should be doing, but instead they come to your blog hoping to see bikini pictures. But instead they get this sucky post. Ha!

I could do one of those padding posts that even the best bloggers do when they run out of interesting things to say. Think of it as a look beneath the silky smoothness of the blogosphere. It’s time to ‘fess up your mid-week hump posts, such as:

Shameless product plug!!!
A post about all the mundane things I use like fancy, bubbly soaps, shampoos, and expensive cheeses. I’ll accompany this with the first photo I find on the Google image search to make the post seem longer and more interesting. Oh, and I better mention Starbucks. Yeah, Starbucks is so awesome. I like drink there everyday. I know some cool peeps at Starbucks.

Random Photo of Me Looking Super Hot
Hey you guys! I just came across this photo of me from my trip to Hawaii this summer on the beach in my underwear. OMG. Isn’t it super random that I would search my entire library of a billion photos and just happen upon the best picture of me ever? So random.

Here’s a list of stuff.
Stuff I like. Stuff I hate. Stuff that’s cool. Here it is in a list format.

  • CSS
  • Frogs
  • Turnips
  • French Fries

Maybe I’ll hyperlink something to one of things in the list to make it seem funny. Instead of just a list, it will be a funny list. Hizzah!


  1. Who’s the last person you kissed? Uh.. myself in the mirror. Does that count?
  2. Pizza, french toast, or grilled tomatoes? Can I choose “a turkey sandwich”? It’s not on the list. Oh. Ok. I’ll go with the french toast, but I’d put turkey on it to make it more like a turkey sandwich.
  3. Recycle batteries or Dump them in a duck pond? Ohh, tough one. Are the ducks real? Yes Hmm. I guess I’ll go with the ducks then. That wasn’t the question. Oh.

Now tag three people with this marvelous memememe. Umm… yeah.. I don’t actually know three people. Can I send it to my cat? He knows how to use the internet. His mouse technique could use some work though.

I just saw this movie.
It was good. It was bad. I liked that part with Brad Pitt in it. Yeah, that part was awesome. [I’ll say something witty here. And reference pop culture. Everyone likes pop culture]. And then I’ll put a link to the trailer. Yeah. Sweet.

Rant Post.
Erg! I’m angry about something and whether you like it or not, I’m gonna rant about it and then pretend to not apologize in the last sentence. Nope. I won’t say, “Uhh, sorry to rant about this, but I’m so tired and I’ve got mono and my iPod just, like, stopped working.”

Here’s a question.
An easy and direct question like “Do frogs have teeth?” or “What is your favourite smell?” or “What makes you happy?” I’ll tell you what makes me happy. Comments. It’s what makes this cold, dark existence worth living.

    I usually catch up on your blog on the weekend, but this morning I was really bored (I’m traveling attending a conference for the company I work for) and thought I’d check out your blog….oh well.

    You should just get away from your comput0rz and read a book when you get fed up. I just bought “Investing Online: For Dummies” myself and my timing couldn’t be worse since the U.S. economy is going down the crapper. Recession FTW! You should totally make and account and try to make some money when things settle down.

    I didn’t come here to see you in a bikini (that’s just bonus for viewing your page). I came to see if you found any random 80’s tech in your closet that still works and you still use (i.e. Speak N Spell).

    Man I totally thought there was going to be a bikini picture in here somewhere. I must admit though that even you’re bored post is still pretty witty.

    You have pretty much just summed up my entire blog as of late. This is what comes of having a stressful career…you lose your creative process.
    Guess I shouldn’t quit my day job ;-)

    Ps. I love Starbucks.
