Stupid bloggists and the hate they spew.

In my wife's eyes, my reading habits are rueful and downright embarrassing. I should be ashamed.

Evidently, when I read, I am much like the mime pretending to be in a barbershop quartet: sad, pointless and loathsome to the point of wanting to strangulate me until my neck oozes a smooth, cream filling.

Before I continue, you should know that my wife is an extreme reader.  When I say this, I don't mean that she reads while bungee jumping off frozen bridges or while diving with malaria infested octopuses.  I simply mean that she reads an extreme amount, which is to say, almost nonstop.  I do not doubt that she is reading in her sleep; instead of dreams, words flash down her mind like the opening credits of a Star Wars movie.

Generally speaking, my wife loves books of the classiest nature; she only reads romance novels in which the man on the cover has buttoned at least three buttons of his shirt.  She despises a cover with any sign of a nipple or a book with the word "highlands" or "scoundrel" in the title.

Check out the title of this baby!
Of course, I tease. The truth is that my wife has no interest in romance novels at all.  She likes mysteries and dramas: tense, overwrought yarns that almost always involve a bloody murder scene and a grizzled, bearded cop.  Occasionally she will get her hands on a fictional comedy or a forlorn novel and be somewhat satisfied.  But her favorites are the murder mysteries and she reads close to 15 of them per month.

While my wife reads, my "reading" consists of both blogging and reading blogs.  In fact, I read blogs at such an incredible rate, I have reached the professional ranks of blog hopping, a feat that only the late, great Maria Shriver and Kristina Pulsipher can claim.  I have become so good, in fact, that I have been awarded one of those giant, luxurious, golden champion belts, like the steroid wrestlers wear.  I will sometimes sling it over my shoulder and pounce around my living room while wearing some orange bicycle unitards. 

I can spend up to three hours blog hopping and still not catch up on all the blogs I follow.  It's like The Neverending Story, but without the flying dog dragon or the racing snail.  I take that back.  I should rephrase: It's like The Neverending Story, but with only the occasional flying dog dragon and the racing snail.  I read blogs while my wife reads her books and while our kids are... who the heck knows or cares, we are READING HERE! 

Now, I know what you are thinking: all of this reading, it is liberating for the mind and soul, right?  Well, yes and no.  Yes for my wife, no for me.  You see, our arguments on this matter usually evolve like this:

(Beloved) Wife: Will you get off the computer?  You have been on there for hours!

(Unbeloved) Me: I'm just writing my blog post. 

(Slightly agitated, but still beloved) Wife: Well, you should get off the computer.

(The dumbest thing a husband could say) Me: Well, you read all day.  Why don't you put down your book? What is the difference?

(More than slightly agitated) Wife: It's not the same and you know it.

(Continually bone-headedly making things worse) Me: What do you mean?  You turn pages and I read off a screen.  Reading is reading.

(Now beyond furious) Wife: Whatever.  Would you just put the STUPID computer away?

I put the computer away.  I believe that it was the right thing to do at the time.  Looking back, I think it was a wise move.

ANYWAY, apparently there is an unspoken, unwritten hierarchy of reading material.  Just off the top of my head, I believe it looks something like this:

BRILLIANT PEOPLE THAT HATE WASTING TIME READING READ:
Books rooted in the sciences
Text books
Books about making money
Murder mysteries

AVERAGE PEOPLE THAT WASTE A LITTLE TIME READING READ:
Harry Potter books
Printed newspapers
Women's magazines
eBooks

MORONS THAT WASTE A LOT OF TIME READING READ:
Those "for Dummies" books.
Sports magazines
Blogs

Don't be offended folks, for I - your brave blogging hero - shall not stand for such injustice.  Reading blogs counts as reading - REAL READING!  Writing blogs should give me MORE credit than reading books.  Writing one blog post is like reading three books. (Albeit, not good books if you are writing the Blog O' Cheese.)

Of course, I know I am preaching to the choir here; the choir that blogs instead of sings.  I'm sure that if I were to go into the library and yell to all my wife's uppity, conceited book friends, "COME ON PEOPLE, PUT DOWN YOUR BOOKS AND PICK UP A BLOG!", they would boo me out of the place and it would be the third time I would have to be physically removed from a pubic library.

My best friends.
I guess what I am trying to say is that you and I (blogging buddies) both know that blogging COUNTS!  It's just that there are just some bloggist folks out there that try and keep bloggers and their readers down by banging us over the head with their hardbounds and paperbacks. (Preferably paperbacks.)  To these folks (including my wife) I say, "Come, join us in the blogosphere and... ride the high places!"

Can I get an AMEN?!

Now where my kids at?!

Amen......and your kids are downstairs re"painting" the walls with peanut butter, and the oldest one is dumping WD40 on the younger one.

Beth Zimmerman said...

Oh ... absolutely AMEN! People who don't blog just don't get it!

mintifresh said...

What if you read a lot of blogs and a lot of books?? And, no, I never know what my kids are doing. nor do I ever get anything productive done..

Just Me said...

I'm so happy! You've made my week. I'm in the brilliant category. Thank you so much.

The Teacher's Pets said...

Well, my fiance' would be on your wife's side and say "Can't you get off the computer?" But you and I wonder what is so darned interesting that blogging doesn't provide? My fiance' thinks sitting in front of the computer counts as reading but since he is motionless while sitting there I have to wonder what the purpose is. Anyway, I don't know how everyone keeps up with reading everyone's blogs, do you? It's impossible so thank goodness our blogging community understands that....or do they?

Saimi said...

AMEN Brother! Blogging is better, it's real life!

DeNae said...

I blog. And I read mysteries. And I read satires. And I sing.

So I believe you and the Missus can have it all, if you accept that the byproduct is -- me.

imbeingheldhostage said...

M-Cat just made me forget my comment! Hilarious. Now get off the computer and rub your wife's feet while she reads.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Amen!

And your kids are probably reading something on the computer they should NOT be reading. Where would that fall in the list?

Joan said...

I'll admit, there are the blogs (and I read a few) that are no better than those trashy novels. But I think blog-reading is real reading too.

pssst....your last sentence ends in a preposition. Just saying... ;)

Sam Liu said...

Brilliant, truly brilliant. You're an orator of the highest degree, Cheeseboy :D

Of course blogging counts as reading! One can read funny posts, sad posts, moving posts, inspiring posts, interesting posts, autobiographical posts et cetera, et cetera, ad infinitum.

*But*, you wife and I are very similar - for I too never stop reading. I spend my time not only reading blogs, but books, books, books and, of course, my daily newspaper. I think books and blogs can go hand in hand, instead of fighting each other, why not bring them together? What can I say, I'm ever the hopeless idealist :D

Jeanne said...

I read all those things (except the money books. Only seriously boring people read books about making money or improving your management skills). Of course, it doesn't leave time for much else....

Bee and Rose said...

I say AMEN! I'm an extreme reader of books and of blogs since my return to the blogosphere a few weeks back! (Maybe that's why I'm so freakin' exhausted lately! I'm on eyeball overload!)

Fabulous post!

Joann Mannix said...

The worst thing about blogging is all the non bloggers look at you with just this skeptical look when you're talking about your blog friends and you know they're thinking, "there she goes again, talking about all her imaginary friends."

But, as a writer, I do so love those non bloggers. Keep on with reading, I say.

00dozo said...

Amen!

A very fun post!
;-)

The Invisible Seductress said...

If you did one of those "who do you write like" tests and it came out to be her favorite author, I do submit she'd have to leave you alone. Because after all your esteemed writing gift would trump the mere reading that she is doing, right. But maybe that would end up in a fight too.

It said I write like Steven King and that guy that wrote the Davinci Code... I am sure some of your other blogger friends could chime in with theirs to help ypu out!!

winks

Where the heck are my kids BTW?

Cherie said...

AMEN!! Just for the record my husband, who is much like your wife, read your "Poopy" blog post the other day and laughed like a Hyena - I was so proud!!!

Kristina P. said...

It takes an enormous amount of talent to be able to blog read. I love to read blogs because it helps me fullfil my "Judging" resolution.

It also helps to not have children, and a job in social work, where you can put the kids in a corner and ignore them while reading blogs.

Karen said...

Dude you hit the nail on the head, or the key on the keyboard.

Gigi said...

Preach it, Cheeseboy!! yeah!

W.C.Camp said...

My Mom is like your wife so she consumes books. I do tons of reading myself but it is all books on tape - HA! W.C.C.

FabuLeslie said...

AMEN! Prejudice against blogging and bloggers is the last socially acceptable prejudice to exist in America today. Well, that and the prejudice against the overweight and obese among us. Still, it's a huge injustice, and I, for one, am so glad you are shining a light on it today! Thank you, Cheeseboy!! Thank you.

Chaka said...

Amen to that. Blogging is looked upon like we are playing video games. Nothing could be further from the truth. However, when my kids claim to be "reading" their homework online, I tend to be like your wife and make them get off. They may be reading, but they also have Facebook, Youtube, I-tunes, and about 4 other sites minimized at the bottom of the page.

Garden of Egan said...

Amen Brotha!
It's nice to get this out in the open. I'm tired of being a closet blogger!

T said...

you've got my vote -

of course, I read doubly obsessively because I read at least two big thick books per week in addition to the blogs I follow. (and let's be honest... most of the books I read I review on my book blog... so does that count as intellectual reading or just more blogging?

Everyday Goddess said...

I couldn't agree more, so I gave you one of my Goddess Awards.

Come on over and collect it anytime!

Sweet Bee Cottage said...

Gotta' be nosy! Why did you get kicked out of a library two times before?????? (Extra question marks means I'm really nosy.)

And thanks for your kinds words and prayers while I was ill. You're a true block of gruyere (the most expensive cheese I know about).

Pat said...

Amen! I see the light!

Before I blogged, I used to say those same things to my husband that your wife said to you.

Now he sits on his computer all day, and I on my laptop, and we are as happy as we can be - not talking to each other, clicking away. But my husband is not a blogger, just reads blogs and other things.

We both are avid readers, too.

So I guess I can say that I have the best of both worlds.

Oh, and our kids are grown and gone so I don't have to worry about what they're doing. (Well, truthfully, that never ends, but, you know what I mean!)

Tammy said...

I am lucky enough to live in the best of both worlds! I blog (a few blogs so that's extra credit reading) and I read books plus anything else with words. I cannot stand to sit and do absolutely nothing. I either blog, read a book or magazine, do a logic puzzle (which again involves reading), or every once in a while play with my children :)

Missy said...

AMEN! My DH wants to start a support group for non blogging spouses...

-stephanie- said...

Amen! I learn a lot from reading blogs. But amen to your wife too. I'm a book reader. Hard cover.

Life with Kaishon said...

Amen. Amen. AMEN! My husband does not know how I can spend hours and hours reading blogs. They are all just SO fascinating. I can't get enough..... : )

Yours always makes me smile big!

Lori said...

Actually, you were right...if Cath were to bungee jump of a frozen bridge, she may be reading a book at the same time.

Strange how all 3 of us sisters are fascinated by and enjoy murder mysteries. What does that say about our family??? Don't answer that.

I have to say I am honored and surprised that you still have time to check in on my lowly blog now that your a "professional" blogger! Oh, except when I do a post about our lovely President...then I hope you skip my blog that day. Only because I want to keep you as a reader, since I only have like 2 readers. :)

Dave said...

Where does blogging about cheesy, cat-themed murder mysteries rank in the heirarchy?

Krista said...

Amen! Who's your REAL friends? Who visits and comments on regular basis? Who validates your existence in this very world? Who appreciates your thoughts and humor? Not those stupid paperbacks. Paperbacks do not love you back. Kristina P. and the rest of us will. Coming off my soapbox now.

Midwestern Mama Holly said...

Love my bloggies I read, but in between Im a lot like your wife... reading books. Mystery, murder books. Love them. Hate the romance books too

elesa said...

Yes, blogging and blog reading make me feel guilty, like I am wasting time. But since i know that if i wasn't sitting here I would be watching TV, I have learned to ignore the guilt.

And I am so glad your championship belt is being put to good use!

Hope Chella said...

Amen!!!! :D

Kelly said...

A-fricken-men!

Corrina Terry said...

Amen!!!!

By the way, I read murder mysteries, but consider myself a normal, not brilliant, person. :o)


How does your wife find THAT many mysteries to read? I have like 16 mystery writers I follow and wait all year for their next book to hit the shelves. In between I mope around my library looking for new authors to read. If she would be willing to share any authors/ideas with me, I'd be grateful. :o)

Keep doing what you're doing. Like I tell my students---when you are writing, you are reading!

Donda said...

AMEN! AND a BIG thank you for reminding me I need to go to the library to pick up a copy of "Blogging for Dummies"! You Rock BrotherMan!!!

RawknRobynsGoneBlogWild said...

Amen. Praise the Lord. Halleluyah, and Shabbat Shalom. I do all the reading for morons, except I substitute pop mags for sports mags. This blogging is time consuming, highly intellectual work.

Heather and Jake said...

I agree, I don't read as many books as I should...but I can als see her point..reading blogs is likely not nearly as educational as reading books that have been proof read and published.

jeanhasbeenshopping said...

You ARE hilarious! Here, here, let me toast you with my Sprite (the only thing handy at the moment). Now I must subscribe, or follow you in some sort of fashion.

MX3 said...

Amen!

Btw, you can post what your kids were doing while you were reading on the "Shit My Kids Ruined" blog, you know, just in case you don't have enough blogs to fill your time.

Mr. Stupid said...

Amen!
I suppose Blogging and Reading are the same. Well, in the second case, you sit with a book in hand and read under proper lighting.
In the first case, you read until your eyes go red and you have decided to spend the rest of your life in the Jungle. I have always turned off my computer before the Jungle thought arrives.
Smiles...

Baby Sister said...

Luckily I don't follow that many people yet so I don't have that much to read...I do like to read those that I follow, and I also like to read books. So Amen times two!

Yanet @ 3 Sun Kissed Boys said...

3rd time kicked out the library, huh? "...orange bicycle unitards...." LOL LOL LOL

AMEN!!

SparkleFarkle said...

Followed Everyday Goddess' trail of breadcrumbs here. She said you were worth the read and she's right!

Powdered Toast Man said...

My fiancee Nicole loathes blogging. She gives me an evil glare anytime I mention a form of the word blog. She just doesn't understand.

They should make a blog movie then people would get it.

ScoMan said...

I like to think my blog walks the fine line between "murder mystery" and "comedy" in a way that so few books can replicate.

Plus the blog is interactive. Her characters won't love her back, but your bloggers will.

Kelly said...

Amen Brother Cheeseboy. I am glad you choose to blog. Your posts lighten up my day. And who doesn't love instant praise when the write? Blogging is the mac and cheese for the soul.

The Stiffs said...

From one blurker to another, Amen!

Tracie said...

AMEN!

Blogging ruined 'real' reading for me. I don't have the attention span to read those long books anymore.

Flufferwuffer said...

AMEN! But I still read a lot of books...mostly fantasy (no, not Twilight and Harry Potter). And there are a lot of blogs out there that in my eyes, aren't worth reading.

But this one is, and that's all you care about, probably!

Cheap Geeks Anonymous

mama-face said...

haha. When I first started blogging I wondered what I had been doing previously with my time and I realized I was reading books instead of blogs. I felt reading blogs wasn't legit in the beginning. Now I don't care. And firmly believe that blogs are just as good as books. Plus they're FREE.

Because you have a separate page for comments and I am lazy I have now forgotten the rest of my thoughts on this matter. What was your post about?

Jenn said...

Amen brother! Wait, I read and blog...does that make me like a super blogger?? :)

baygirl32 said...

Amen!!
But now I'm a little confused... cause I read 2 selections from each category... so does that me an extreme moron?

Writing Without Periods! said...

I read those "For Dummies" books. I'm an expert at a lot now.
Mary

TechnoBabe said...

Congrats on POTW. Your post is full of humor and yet plenty of truth too. I for one read about five books a week and I also blog and read hundreds of blogs daily. Of course I barely do laundry or cook meals, but I have my priorities straight, dude. Kinda like you.

Mamma has spoken said...

Amen!
Blog reading=best true life short stories ever written!

Mary said...

What what!! My hubby spends hours playing with his nerdy friends on the computer (BB2, COD, COH), so he can't complain.

Hart Johnson said...

AMEN!

Although I confess to only reading blogs that I can pay HALF attention to (amusing ones, rather than deep ones) when at work, as Deep blogs and reading fiction require more than just my spare brain cells. I read real books while walking to and from work.

How many points do I get for WRITING murder mysteries?

tammy said...

I usually spend hours blog hopping then getting mad at myself because what I really wanted to be doing is reading my mystery novel. Then I spend hours reading my mystery novel only to find out that my Google Reader is exploding with unread blogs and I stress about getting them read. It's a vicious cycle.

The Church Lady said...

Blog reading definitely falls into the category of a "good read" and you meet new friends too!

Emmy said...

AMEN! I figuring blogging is better, as then you are interacting and helping real people rather than just reading some dead man's words ;)

And I am expecting a post about the other times you were removed from the library :)

Vanessa said...

Whose going to break it to Cheeseboy? Ok, I will. The fun and newness will eventually wear off and the blog reading will become a chore and you will feel bad if you can't get to all the blogs.

No, I'm not a bloggist. Just an overwhelmed blogger that just went in and dejunked my reader of my least favorite blogs. Only a few made the cut.

And, I'm still here, so you should be happy. :)

Pearl said...

Reading a blog is still reading. :-) But I have to agree with you. I can't possibly keep up with all the blogs I follow...

Pearl

Holly Ruggiero, Southpaw said...

Blogging is an addiction. There I said it. Once you start it’s hard to stop.

MiMi said...

What?
Your wife reads 15 books a month? Here I thought I read a lot at about 4 or 5.

Melinda said...

AMEN!! Although I like reading REAL books too. So I guess I'm perfect. Yay me!

Hutch said...

I'm brilliant, average and a moron...score!

feetarebig2 said...

You left out the lowest catagory of readers- those who read Twilight

TS Hendrik said...

You missed a category. The ones who read books to write reviews on their blogs and read others book review blogs.

litanyofbritt said...

True that, dude! My husband periodically turns his bluetooth down to bitch and moan about my blogging. Not all of us can save the world from a zombie apocalypse you know.

Marlene said...

So true. :) I for one, am grateful you've lowered your standard to reading blogs.

Leeuna said...

AMEN, Cheeseboy. I can barely keep up with all the blogs I love. (I save the "books" for reading in the bathroom and waiting rooms) Sorry if that's TMI. :)

Holly said...

AMEN!!
WOW! Ranking up there with Kristina!! You ARE a ROCK STAR! ;p

I think you need an AWARENESS ribbon attached to this post!! We NEED to raise awareness of the injustice of the "world view/stigma" about BLOGGING!! ;p

Keep UP with ALL? Not really possible. But definitely with the ones that actually interact! Or the ones that are THAT GOOD and I am intrigued by. ;D

I find it interesting when people judge me for ALWAYS being on the computer. Ummm... I'm a photographer; I edit on the computer. While waiting for files to save, I jump into other windows and have various distractions. I also do digital scrapping, service blogs (3 for my church, informational, recipe exchange, and preparedness and others for individuals with health issues to keep family/friends updated on their condition). I make my lists, track scout awards, calendar EVERYTHING... and yes! I BLOG and interact with others in the BLOGOSPHERE, ALL on the computer. So, I admit I am in front of the computer a LOT. But I DO GOOD things here. It helps me focus on things other than where my mind frequently tries to race me to, and I'm not shopping/spending money... SO that's a GOOD thing... Right?

I totally GET YOU!! LOL! Tell her to think of it as a service project. You are on this earth to make women smile! Humor filled posts and comments is your devoted way of remaining loyal to your wife and values while achieving your purpose in LIFE!! LOL!! ;p

ModernMom said...

So I'm not sure what category I fit in because I devour books with the best of them, classics, murder mysterys, AND blogs.
Perhaps if I stopped reading real books I could get caught up on all those blogs I follow!

Teachinfourth said...

Amen to that my brother from another mother… blogging is a way of life. Of course, when I really stop to think about it, I spend an awful lot of time reading and writing for my blog.

Maybe too much time…

But I love it.

UnicycleRose said...

Okay, you have caught me in a pickle...I enjoy a good blog-read session, but as a wife of a programmer who just loooooves his computer, I must say that it can be quite upsetting to be upstagged by the new brain of technology. Book reading is timeless. Computer reading is porn and too many other icky connections, so I see her point. Listen to and respect your wife... I think that she wants more of YOU....give it to her!

Pedaling said...

I'd put Big Daddy (my hubby) in the first category....

me, well, if it weren't for blogs, I'd be in the 2nd....but, damn those blogs, I think with the amount of time spent reading, then commenting- I'm in the bottom.

Copyboy said...

It's amazing how my wife and I have the exact same fight.

Connie said...

I read blogs and books. They're basically the same, unless you're reading blogs from a desk top computer - then you're in another room away from the fam, you're unable to read while in bed, and if your eye sight is bad, you develop bad posture, leaning in close to read. Other than that...exactly the same!

AMEN!

lindsey v said...

Such a funny post.
I've found myself transitioning from reading lots of books and a few blogs to reading a few books and more blogs these days. Does it require less thinking or something? Is it lazier reading? I'm not sure. I would like to read more books than I do but when it comes down to having free time, I usually end up blogging more.

Now seriously, where your kids at?

Cupcake Murphy said...

I'm becoming Hunchback due to my bloggy all the live long night. It pulls me in like so many gangsters.

MBGITWWR said...

I will be totally honest! I had not thought of blogging in this way. I hadn't equated blog reading with regular reading and I'm quite glad you've brought it to my attention. I don't feel so bad for not snagging something from the shelf as often as I wish. I AM READING DANGIT! AMEN!

Traci said...

Oh yeah, great idea, Abe. Tell people to not read books... then I would be out of a job! Just kidding, I really wouldn't, there would just be more people coming in to use the computers to read blogs- then I would have to do more of the fun part of my job, which is turning off the computer of someone looking at something naughty from behind the desk... they never know it's me!

Marnie said...

I'm Marnie and I'm a read-a-holic :D I read blogs, I read books, I read fortune cookies. I need help.

Kelley said...

Aaaayyyyyyymeeeeeeeeyun!!! I loved the part where you are on the verge of getting kicked out of the library...for the FOURTH time! Get yourself under control, Cheeseboy! I also am in a book club where I read REAL books. So, you can imagine that I have no time for my kids, husband or personal hygiene. I'M READING HERE!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Cheeseboy, you have an awesome award today!

Sausage Fingers said...

Highland Scoundrel was my porn name

Ms Bibi said...

Amen....

I like your wife. She's my kind of reader...no romance novels for me. I love good murder mystery...of course when it doesn't cut into my blog reading time.

Ally said...

my hubs is always telling me to get off of the computer :(

natalee said...

For that you get an AMEN BROTHER!!!! My husbands always saying.. "what the hell are doing on that computer now???? " Im reading.. I like to point out...... so the man literally bought me a kindle so i can read without the computer....

um yeah.. IS it me????

C'est La Vie said...

where my kids at, where my kids at, where my kids at?!

AMEN!

Diane J. said...

Amen! I read everything. I'm probably the only person who was miffed that I didn't have enough time to finish reading all the papers we signed when we bought our house. Heaven forbid if I have to sit somewhere and I have nothing to read. My hands ache, I sweat. I don't care if it's a book, a computer, or a graffiti-filled bathroom. I have to read.

Jason, as himself said...

97 comments? And you just started your blog like, what? Two weeks ago?

I'd say you're right about your blogging time. I loved the heirarchy. Thanks for coming to our defense.

Claire said...

Amen.
Haha. I need to read more blogs, but I am often stuck in a book. In the summer my husband says I "devour" books.
Yay for reading of any sort, I say. Some people don't, or can't read.
It sucks for them because they miss a LOT of funny stuff.

Read on, be it romance novels, vampire books for moms..er..teenage girls, blogs or even trashy guilty pleasures.

Unknown Mami said...

Dude! I am comment #100 on this post. You are a rock star.

Thank you for bringing to light this form of discrimination. I too have been the victim of blog-ism and it is time we take a stand and fight for our rights. You gotta fight for your right to BLOG!

Gigi said...

As an avid reader - who would definitely enjoy swapping books with your wife, as our tastes are the same - I have to say....yes, blog reading DOES count. Although, the more blogs you read, the less books you seem to read.

tiburon said...

I prefer to do all my reading via computer. Or BlackBerry.

It is how I roll.

Marla said...

Amen!! Preach it brother!!

Lene said...

AMEN my brother!

and a little amen for you wife, because there is nothing like turning the pages of a real book!

T said...

bwah-hah... so glad this is included in the top ten...

Me? I read books like a crazy person (15 per month... yeah, about that) and then read blogs for a few hours per day too...

ManOfTheHouse never knows what to tell me to put away first... but he knows dinner will be late (if ever) if there's a book release written on the calendar.

tammy said...

Do you really have 104 comments on this post?

fnkybee said...

Amen Brotha!

UnicycleRose said...

AMEN, Mr. Blog o Cheese! Long time no blog, nice to see that you have still got it and that you are doing well as ever!
