Comment Whore

Having been unable to comment for a few long periods of time in the last month or two, once again I find myself catching up answering comments from previous posts. This seem to happen a lot.

It is unfortunate that life gets in the way of posting, commenting, responding and my position on the most watched list. I was really getting up there on the list and then life happened. I would like to believe that those polls are based on interest and not popularity contests or cliches, that even if I left for a month I would still be popular which has always been my goal in exchange for the time spent blogging. Why else would I be here?

I'm encouraged that I know everyone is going back and checking their comments with bated breath for the "gems of wit and wisdom" (not) that are my replies. Even if this were remotely the case, I don't always check responses to my comments on other blogs anyway (or do I? hehe). Many times I forget I commented at all, I get so confused. But just in case I wind up going back to be sure.

My general routine when I do not have other more pressing life issues, in which time line wise, gives a clue to explain "my so-called life" and why I don't have a real one.

I check my e-mail early and often throughout the day for possible e-mails from the community. Then I go to my blog and check for comments often throughout the day to my last post.

Then I do miscellaneous blogging things, including trying to leave wise-ass, cynical comments on other people's blogs to prove what a great guy I am and that you should come to read my blog.

Do a little writing for future posts, always with the motivation of a topic that will get the most possible comments.

Then I fall asleep on the couch sometime around midnight watching some movie that's on HBO or World's Funniest Animals.

I wake up around 4 am with the TV blaring - courtesy of those late-night infomercials where they crank up the volume in the hopes of waking you up.

I turn the volume down and wake up Fred (my Mac) and do miscellaneous bloggie things.

Then becoming drained and exhausted around 7 am, I collapse and take a nap.

Re-awakening several hours later with my house mates telling me to get the fuck up and keep off "Fred" I attempt to resist the urge.

Rinse and repeat.

I typically go back and answer older comments in the wee-ish hours of the morning when I'm in full possession of my faculties and do them all in one fell swoop.

I just want to note that I am not a comment snob, I am a comment whore. Some bloggers get so many comments that if they answered them all, they would never have time to blog, sleep or eat. I'm not in that category but I do procrastinate. So anyway, thank you all for you comments, I truly do appreciate it.

Oh, look at the time. Believe it's time for a nap.

This post is prepared in jest. It is intended to invoke thought and humor. It is also prepared to poke fun of those who believe that everyone here does not actually give a shit (because a lot of people do) and only posting to obtain response.

This post, while intended to be viewed by those who appreciate my blog and in turn whose blogs I appreciate, should in no way be construed as an attempt to comment whore. Should anyone decide to comment, they do so at there own discretion and without coercion by author of said blog.

Even when posted in jest, there's so much truth in there for others. Good message to all


rm_gerson42 replies on 7/24/2006 2:18 pm:
I tend to do that. Mix a little truth with a little humor. Sales 101 course suggests that people always say things for a reason and no matter the joke, usually there is a little truth mixed in.

Thanks for the check, Ger. After it clears, I'll come back and add the extra comments we IM'ed about.

Oops, was I not supposed to say this here?

Are you sure you're not a lawyer?

I'm just glad to see the ol' yellow line next to your handle recently. And I do enjoy reading your responses to comments. You do have a way with your comments, like the stick figure guy and all.
Hey, it's fine to admit that you're a whore....isn't this a place for truth?


rm_gerson42 replies on 7/24/2006 2:48 pm:
Not a lawyer, is it too late. Never mind... they don't make enough money and have to work regular hours. lol

Fred, huh?

Up until this moment in time it hadn't occurred to me that people actually NAME their PC's even in jest, lol

but that might have something to do with the fact that I'm not into the habit of naming body parts, either

great post and I love the disclaimers, they crack me up but I hope that isn't what Blogland has come to? Blog freely and fuck em all if they can't hang I feel guilty about not responding to my comments too, just spent two hours playing catch up and still have a few more to go. You can visit my blog and leave wise ass remarks anytime friend


rm_gerson42 replies on 7/24/2006 2:54 pm:
ooh, I love disclaimers. I can completely mix up the line between truth and humor with them. Totally agree with you, blog freely I say. I'm on my way over.

This is the first time I have actually read your blog, although I have often admired your picture. You have a way with words, that I enjoy very much. Keep on blogging!
