Negelecting Y'All Like I'm Britney Spears And Yer My Young'uns

I realize that my blog claims to serve up useless stuff DAILY, yet I haven't posted since Sunday (and that was kind of a half-assed video post). I'm sorry, people. And I'm sorry that I haven't been around to many of your blogs lately either. I miss you all dearly. But I think I'm suffering from some rare form of Epstein Barr that only affects my energy level when faced with the prospect of writing about pop culture nonsense.

I had a small existential crisis last week. As part of my new gig with Celeb Love, I had to write about a certain reality TV (ex) duo that I promised myself I would never cover. (I still won't mention them on my own blog, but their names rhyme with Yawn and Hate.) But I guess that's what happens when someone's paying you to write - you can't always write what you want. But if you try sometimes, you'll find you get what you need. Like, today I got to do a funny post about Jennifer Aniston supposedly drunk dialing Brad Pitt. And tomorrow - well, tomorrow I get to write about Adam Lambert. So, yeah...what was I bitching about before?

The new gig has been fun, but between that and my Starpulse duties, I guess I've been experiencing a bit of entertainment overload. That must be why I've been slacking on my own blog.

No, no, that can't be it. I could never get tired of this pop culture rubbish. It's gotta be the dreaded day job. I need to find a way to get rid of that without going completely broke.

Anyway, just wanted to pop in to let everyone know I'm still alive and that I'm sorry I've been a bad blogger. To make it up to you, here is a great vid that was passed on to me by the blogger formerly known as Falwless. This little girl is amazing. I think I would like to have kids, but only if they're this cool and hilarious. (And let's be honest, with my genes, that's pretty damn likely.)

I'm pretty sure that kid's you in 25 years. :)

Paying gigs dude? Aren't YOU sassy? Well done. Now I have to go try to find your writings over there. Gosh you're famous.

Um I should rephrase that first part. That kid, in 25 years, will be just like YOU. That's what I meant.

Did that little girl really just break out the Bow Chicka Wow Wow song?

Does she listen to Daddy's porn through the walls?

I want to see the video! I like funny kids! Is she as adorable as the little Windows 7 girl? I want to steal her and raise her as my own.

I've been reading your Proj Runway recaps religiously - love them! I'm not sure why I haven't commented - I'll try harder this week.

I,like Britney's kids, have been sitting around eating Cheetos waiting for you to reappear. Thanks for ruining my diet huh!

I'd be proud to be one of yer young'uns. I say neglect the unpaid blog as long as you need to. (except for telling us about your Starpulse posts, because I'm lazy and need direct linkage)

that video makes me very happy i didn't have access to a camera in my formative years.


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
