Talk about unwanted!

The other night I was talking with my wife about life and blogging. Out of the blue, she observed something that I had to double check. Lo and behold, she was correct.

My so-called loving blog parents painfully neglect me.

First you have Graumagus, whom is sleep deprived, working some hellacious work hours and doesn’t make regular posts on his blog anymore. I could cut the guy some slack, but he’s even taken to not responding to e-mails or even checking on me. When he does come around, he does it when I’m sleeping or at work just to make sure I’m keeping up with things, but nary a comment.

Then there is Bouddicca, who is the Queen of Hurricanes and sick kids. She can find time to volunteer to be a den mother, treasurer for the school and visit everyone and their mother (except me). I don’t even know if she stops by anymore and there hasn’t been a comment from her in a coon’s age! Isn’t a blog-mother supposed to be nurturing and supportive? I see her at her other blog children’s sites spouting off love, just not here. Maybe the circumstances of my blog conception where just too traumatic for her to deal with.

Finally, there is Harvey, who is the social butterfly and the patriarch of half the blogosphere it seems. If he isn’t busy creating his own blog children he’s kidnapping others and adopting them as his own. At least he keeps up appearances and stops by ever 3-4 days to drop off court-mandated comments, so I know he’s still around. I accept I’m not his favorite, but does he really have to keep trying to deny my existence?

They really are emphasizing the unwanted part of “The unwanted stump in the family tree”.

However, I would still like to show my appreciation to my blog parents for inspiring me (or in one of their cases, brow beat) into creating this blog. Seeing as tomorrow is Thanksgiving, I would like to give thanks to the three of them. Even if BCFS (Bloggers Child and Family Services) is going to come and take me away due to neglect.

Dude, seriously... I know I have no real taste in friends, but I think you're okay.

But if you would just put that bag back over your head, I bet they'd be happy to claim you. :P

Tammi... Shovels to bury the body????? I KNEW IT!

T1G: Well my 2/3rds brother likes me

VW: Well some of the family acknowledges me, it makes them look good! :)

Grau: ***Kicking Grau in the Ding-Ding*** There is no beer, T1G and I drank it all. Lousy excuse for a blog father! :)

You are so full of crap! Look at your damn sitemeter! I am here all the damn time.

Humpf! *scratching him off my Will, which means he no longer incurs my massive hurricane debt*

;-) Happy Thanksgiving.
