Folks, I've have finally reached my limit! Like a cartoon character, my eyes have shot out of my head and smoke is coming out of my ears. Ah-ooooo-ga!
Today is the final day of Humor Bloggers Dot Com Anti-Injustice Campaign. I had in mind exactly what I was going to write until I popped over there this morning to take a look at what the other members had posted. There it was at the top of the home page...The Last Injustice submitted by nonamedufus. Ah-ooooo-ga!
In his post, Dufus goes on-an-on about what a bunch of snot-nosed, punch line deprived brats we are. He whines how he took part in this injustice carnival as if he were the only one over there with a creative bone in his body and having the guts to participate for the entire month...so dutifully. Get this... then he takes the easy way out, he provides links to all of his related posts for the past month. Pffffft!
I hear you out there, "Why are your panties in a wad, MeMe?" I'll tell you why. I was going to write the same damn thing. But, now if I do, I'll be tagged as a copy-cat, a post stealer or worse...just another dumb blond.
So, what's my rant? Time zones!!!
You see, Dufus lives in the eastern part of Canada and he has at least a 3 hour jump on me. For all I know, they may have some special time zone up there in the great white north that may push him 4 or 5 hours ahead of me. In fact, I believe he just might write his posts the day before and schedules them to appear at 4:00 or 5:00 AM his time. That's 1:00 or 2:00 AM my time. Oh, the injustice!
Now, this has really got my brain turning this morning, not to mention having to stick my eye balls back into their sockets. And, all of this, without a full cup of coffee. I will not get up right after I've gone to bed just so I can beat everyone else to the punch. Time zones or not, I will not be scooped again!!! I will work smarter not harder.
Yeah you, Mr. Canadian bacon eating, smarty pants, humur-huggy blogger, you'll have to get up mighty early to scoop me again. My idea for the first 26 days of December is to present a letter of the alphabet each day - I'm calling this series The Fractured ABC's of Christmas. Scoop that!!!
