Time Out

Maybe this is a good time for a meta post.

First Draft sucks. It used to be awesome, but then the ponies took over. Or the inside jokes. Or the ferrets. Everybody posts too much, and not enough, and not about the stuff I want. The blogroll’s too long. The blogroll’s too short. The blogroll is tasty when toasted and covered in butter, but we’re out of butter, and I think it’s a conspiracy to deny butter to me and other right-thinking bloggers. Whither the blog community? What is the true meaning of community, anyway, and how does it apply to us bitching at each other about who’s more progressive? What color should the End Fascism Now brochure be? Have you ever seen anything as awesome as my navel?

Maybe not.

I’ll be on the road all next week. In my absence, enjoy the guestblogging stylings of our very own virgotex, who will fulfill all your blogging needs that involve parrots and an awesome kitty named Ira.

Oh, and politics, too.

    i think your blog is patently unfair to residents of california, who are denied the joys of ferret ownership.

    And why aren’t there more Battlestar Galactica posts? That’s what sucks.

    “He’s actually a geologist! or a Gemolgist or a Rock star. Something like that.)”
    He’s actually a woman. Something like that.
    perhaps, like others, you have confused ‘virgotex’ with ‘Vercingetorix’
    if so, you have a lot of gall!

    Virgotex rocks! (That’s an inside joke. He’s actually a geologist! or a Gemolgist or a Rock star. Something like that.)

    There’s no problem so great that it that cannot be solved with emoticons and sound FX
    Spocko, you can’t spell meta without ME

    Let me just make a meta comment on your meta comment. There is just way too much meta commentary going on here at First Draft.
    That said, Virgotex I expect at least three posts about totally inside blogosphere topics and 2 inside jokes that will totally confuse everyone but the kool kids. And be sure to act all condescending to the people who didn’t get to guest post. Because that is what we want. And it’s all about us. Actually it’s all about me. me me me me MEEEEEE!
    That is all.

  11. Elayne Riggs says:

    Never mind that, why doesn’t Tena post more?

  12. slim says:

    Damn, I must have come in after the butter. Still tastes great, though.

  13. pansypoo says:
