Lost Blogging: Day 2

Posted on Tuesday, April 11th, 2006

Dave!Blogs are so cool.

Originally, I liked having a blog because it was a way to let my friends know where I was at and what I was doing. Then I liked having a blog because it let me bitch about stuff that was bothering me. Then I liked having a blog because the comments allowed me to interact with readers and find other blogs to read. Then I liked having a blog because of all the nifty people I was meeting.

And now?

Now I like having a blog because of free socks.

Yes! Free socks! A couple days ago I got a comment on my entry "I Want a Gun" from Jon, who runs a most excellent site called "Drive Right, Pass Left" (which is all about those dumbasses who drive in the left-side passing lane WITHOUT PASSING ANYBODY, which drives me insane). He was nice enough to send me a few stickers (one of which is now on my backpack), a license plate frame (which is going on my car ASAP), and a pair of socks with his site's logo embroidered on them...


At first I thought that the socks were just a fun novelty, but I tossed them in the wash and decided to try them on today. HANDS-DOWN THE MOST COMFORTABLE SOCKS I HAVE EVER WORN! Seriously, they stretch-fit so there's no bunching in your shoe. The seams are imperceptible, so they don't rub against your toes. They have some kind of miracle fabric that keeps your feet cool. These are NOT some crappy novelty... they are truly awesome socks. Jon didn't cheap-out here, he went for "Sock Guy" socks, which I had never heard of, but am now in love with.

Naturally, I am so jealous of Jon and his personalized socks that I can barely stand it. I want custom socks of my own!

Dave Socks!

Unfortunately, I don't have $650 burning a hole in my pocket to place a minimum order. Oh well. I'll just have to be happy dreaming of socks. Thanks Jon!

And in non-sock-related news...

It looks as though another "Lost Blogs" entry has appeared over at DaveSpace!

I'm kind of embarrassed to admit that out of all the participating bloggers, I've guessed just ONE "lost blogger", and even that one I'm not 100% sure about.

Those of you wanting to make guesses as to my "lost blogger's" identity should send me an email at the address in my sidebar. Comments with guesses will not be approved! Who knows, there might be a prize for the first person to guess correctly! But remember the rules... you only get ONE GUESS... so make sure you're sure about who it is before contacting me, because any subsequent guesses by the same person will be tossed out. Good luck!

    If anyone gets who your lost blog person is, based on these 2 entries, they are truly genius, and need loads of money forthwith.

    On a side note, I’d totally buy Bad Monkey socks!! (and I hate socks.)

  2. Jacquie says:

    Hmmm, don’t know but I will go halves with you on that $650 order.

  3. Kevin says:

    See? Now I’ve just lost all respect for this person because they’re friends with John Stamos and Paris Hilton! Sick, twisted bastard. Whose identity I have no clue about!

    Ras Al-Ghul? Is that the whole R-A-S thing?

  4. sandra says:

    Dave, I have absolutely no idea who you are, if that makes you feel any better about only guessing one other person’s secret identity. Also — the only one I know (other than my own) is my roommate’s. So I kind of suck at the guessing too.

  5. Dave2 says:

    Adena: Somebody familiar with this person will instantly know it with this entry, and I was actually worried that I had given too many clues. Tomorrow is still a little sketchy for most people, but my guess is somebody will get it then (if they don’t today). I think on Thursday 50% of people reading it will know who it is (or can figure it out), and Friday I am guessing that 95% of people reading will know (and, if not, I’ll have a link to the answer).

    Jacquie: What would you do with $325 of Custom Blogography socks?!? That’s 60 pair! I guess you and your friends could have awesome looking feet for YEARS! πŸ™‚ Actually, I wish I could afford the $325. πŸ™

    Kevin: Ras Al-Ghul is a fictional character! I didn’t think we could use fictional characters!

    Sandra: I have a feeling that somebody might guess my lost blogger today… there’s something in the air of the blogosphere that tells me I’ve given too many clues now!

  6. Cavan says:

    Ack! I’m not even getting any ideas on who it might be yet, let alone getting ready to guess.

  7. jodi says:

    oh man, i want to make my own custom socks! those are so cool! but i don’t think i could fit 120 pairs of socks in my sock drawer.

  8. Eve says:

    All of the above socks are groovy, though I’m not sure how they work as promotional materials. Do you just stick your foot in people’s faces? Hey, look, check out my web site!

  9. ms. sizzle says:

    socks are awesome.

  10. Brandon says:

    I haven’t guessed anybody’s character yet. I haven’t had a ton of time to really go over the posts, but still I would think one would have popped into my mind by now.

  11. Dave H says:

    I think you should set up a Blogography sock pre-order in your shop and see if you can cover the minimum order… I know I’d buy a couple of pairs – I always need socks, and they’ll provide great promotional material when they’re drying on my line!

    Of course, if socks were available I’d no longer be able to hold back from buying the shirts!

  12. “I would prefer not to” guess your mystery blogger at this time. Love your approach on this Mr. Blogography.

  13. Claire says:

    Dave, I am beginning to think that you are an evil genius. Only my husband confuses me more.

  14. Deb_LA says:

    Um, is it bad that I haven’t even guessed who one person is yet? I haven’t read all of them though but the ones I have, I haven’t a clue who the hell they are. I want me some dave socks! I want Dave to keep my toesies warm!

  15. Jeff says:

    I agree with Dave H. I would commit to a preorder as well.

    Regarding “Tom the Trespasser,” my son claims he just deleted him from his “friends” list. I don’t know anything about MySpace but I can ask him how he did it if you’re interested.

  16. Jacynth says:

    I’m thinking Mariah Carey, around her Glitter time. Am I right????

  17. mikey says:

    I would love to say Todd Mcfarlin aka stewie but from your first posting I am clueless. You evil monkey!!!

  18. Nicole says:

    For some reason your lost blogger makes me think of poor Bob Cratchit from A Christmas Carol. Aside from the fact that he is a fictional character, I am still sure I am completely off-base.

    So far I have successfully NOT guessed any lost bloggers correctly. But that’s only because I have been withholding my natural impulse to Google any and all clues that people have provided. Though I’m not sure I can hold off for another day…

  19. Bre says:

    Yuck – I’m strongly anti-sock… but I’m a big fan of “drive right, pass left!”

    I’m impressed that you’ve guessed one of the lost blogs! I have a few suspicious, but nothing is concrete.. or even swamplike.

  20. Chanakin says:

    Ya know… I might actually wear a pair of blogography socks…

  21. Pauly D says:

    What I want to know is what the hell is up with Gravatar?

  22. Dave2 says:

    Ooh. Are they having problems again? Gravatars are appearing normally to me right now…


  23. suze says:

    i have had one fleeting thought as to who you might be, but it is far too fleeting to be worthy of my one only guess. still amazed by the effort you’ve put into this – LOVE the davespace site!

  24. groovebunny says:

    Yup. I’m still stumped. But I do love the Sock Guy!

  25. Brent says:

    Blogography socks. Now if you could make that happen, you really know you’re popular! Soon you’ll be able to sell anything with your likeness on it. We know about the DaveToys but when if you can sell Dave-branded fruitcakes and pregnancy tests we’ll know the true test of your popularity! Nice post. Regards, Brent

  26. Kathleen says:

    “ a place for fiends”

    if I wasn’t so dang tired, I would be laughing audibly.

  27. Nicole says:

    Dave – we need more clues tomorrow! I still have no idea who your character is and I wasted a lot time at work today trying to figure it out.

  28. Kevin says:

    NO! Ras Al Ghul is REAL! I saw him just the other day walking in SoHo in the rain. He was with one of those Werewolves in London! They’re poker buddies!
