First of all, you’re welcome. I had to do my monthly duty over at the Nudge Wink Report, so I thought I’d summarize the latest goings on of a few popular TV shows instead of coming up with some sort of intelligent topic to write about. Don’t worry about spoilers though, as I’m actually a week or so behind. If you’re further behind than that, you need to buck up and take your TV viewing a little more seriously and stop wasting time with more meaningful pursuits, like earning a living, raising children or volunteering at the local ebola clinic. Since I know that many of you are visual learners, here’s a photo for you:
Feel free to thank me later. You can click on the Nudge Wink link above, or here to jump over there and see my incredibly shallow summary of a few popular shows, which you may or may not watch.
I realize I just shilled my mother’s appearance on How I Met Your Mother, and it was horrible, but trust me on this one – I’m fairly sure this time will be slightly less horrible (For those of you who feel cheated to have watched a mediocre sitcom just to catch a glimpse of the mother of a blogger who you’ve never met, please comment your displeasure, and I will try to post a link to something good that she was in).
As loyal readers know, I’m a field reporter for The Nudge Wink Report. This Saturday’s post is all mine, baby. I nailed it! It’s such a great post that I’m pissed that I didn’t post it here. Still, a promise is a promise, and I had to post it there, because I gave my virtual word.
It’s easy to see my incredible post, just click on the link above. For the computer illiterate among you, the link is the underlined thingy in the previous paragraph. Just hover your curser over the words “This Saturday’s post” and left click. Left is the side which is opposite the right. Once you do that, the computer will magically take you to my post. After you’ve read it, you are free to make comments as long as they are glowing reviews of my wit and whimsy.
Before you get too impressed, I should point out that NWR is a blog, and not a hard-hitting news magazine on a major TV network. Still, when someone offers you a job, even a free one with no health benefits, it’s just hard to say no. This is particularly true when that someone is the mysterious and talented wise-ass known to many as Blogdramedy.
She and I have collaborated in the past on the infamous “paint-color names” and “answering life’s difficult questions” posts. I’ve also participated in a couple of her challenges, including the recent Dog Days of Summer as well as the Reindeer Hunger Games back around the holidays. She recruited me to sign onto this new venture for a variety of reasons, not the least of which was my apparent inability to say to “no” to hot blonds in cool shades.
I can take solace in the fact that I’m not the only blogger who can’t refuse this siren of the blogosphere. I’m joined by some incredible writers who will be taking turns posting their own warped views each Saturday morning.
The first Saturday morning I was assigned was the one at the start of a major 3-day holiday weekend. Strategically, this works to my advantage, since many people are too busy trying to squeeze the last drops out of summer and won’t be sitting at their laptops sipping coffee. This way when my numbers look bad, I can blame the holiday and not my mediocre post.
Hey, what’s she gonna do anyway? Fire me?
So in addition to following me blindly here, I’ll be posting over there one Saturday every month. I’ll try to remind you. You can always reach The Nudge Wink Report by clicking on the icon for it on the right border of this very blog. Okay, back to your regularly scheduled barbeque.
