The Shrubbloggers

What kind of a stupid name is "The Shrubbloggers"?    |    Why is there a "2.0" next to the crappy logo?    |    You could well starve if you feed on our RSS.

Earlier today I sent Michael Malice a link to this story about Bea Arthur cracking wise with the terrorist jokes while dealing with airport security. He posted it on his blog, along with a note about yours truly:

Respect to Between Before And After for the info. Disrespect to the same for never updating his blog!

So, properly chastened, here’s my first entry in over three weeks. It’s true I’ve been busy . . . started a new job . . . lotsa freelance work left from the old job, and other places . . . I’m leaving in the morning to spend a few days with friends in Orlando . . . and I’m spending Labor Day weekend with my sister & family at their new home in Clemson, South Carolina . . . and, um, really, how can I find time to post stuff in this blog when “I’ve been chatting online with babes all day,” à la Kip Dynamite?

But even though I’m busy, I should learn from my betters (and this term is accurate — if Michael honestly reported his IQ, he’s got me beat by a few points . . . although I still beat that tool Lisa Simpson). While I pretend to be a blogger now and then, Michael is there pounding out new entries every day (which aren’t boring at all, despite his disclaimers). While I think about maybe writing a novel someday, Michael is seriously cranking them out. And while I’ve always loved comic books, Michael is actually gonna be in them.

His next book should be a remake of How to Be Like Mike — I’d buy it.

(Incidentally, one of the comments after Michael’s Bea Arthur blog entry is the best reason I’ve come across for enabling blog comments. If I can count on blog readers to post links to stuff like Bea Arthur wrestling velociraptors, I’m sold. I want the comments. Stay tuned.)
