The Daver, 2004: “You should start a blog.”
Aunt Becky: “What the shit is a ‘blob?‘”
The Daver: “You know, an online weblog?”
Aunt Becky: “Is that for Dungeons and Dragons people? Because I do not play Dungeons and Dragons. I am offended that you would think I play Dungeons and Dragons, The Daver. Also: gravy.”
The Daver: “You’re offended by gravy?”
Aunt Becky: “Only the powdered kind.”
The Daver: “Ha, no. Blogs aren’t for Dungeons and Dragons. A blog is kinda an online journal.”
Aunt Becky: “So. Wait. You write a diary online?”
The Daver: “Kinda.”
Aunt Becky: “And then…other people read it?”
The Daver: “Yes. Some. Probably.”
Aunt Becky: “OMG. Bwahahahahahahahahaha! THAT’S SO RIDICULOUS.”
The Daver: “Gee. Thanks.”
Aunt Becky: “Who gives a flying shit what I think about ‘eating grilled cheese‘ or ‘driving through snow?‘ Why would anyone care?”
The Daver: *shrugs* “I’d read what you wrote.”
Aunt Becky: “Aw.”
(a couple days later)
The Daver: “Sure.”
(years go by)
The Daver, 2011: “How’s that Humble Pie taste, Tex? How’s that blog treating you?”
Aunt Becky: “Shutthefuckup.”
How did you get started blogging, Pranksters?
And, PRANKSTERS, holy FUCK, I got nominated for a Bloggie for Best Writing of a Weblog and Most Humorous Weblog.
Band Back Together got nominated for Best Kept Secret Weblog. This is HUGE.
Um. UMMMM. I got woken up to frantic fucking PHONE calls because it’s so awesome to have been nominated.
So, Pranksters *rubs toe into ground bashfully* would, um, you mind, um, voting for me? Please? PLEASE?
