Dave!I'm not at BlogHer in Illinois. I'm not at Comic-Con in Caifornia. I'm working in Washington State.

This sucks twelve shades of Sunday, because I would gladly be at either event than stuck here.

The good news is that it really takes the pressure off having to write something for Blogography. After all, with the tons of news, blogs, and tweets coming out of Chicago and San Diego... who would notice if I put up something that sucks? Maybe I should just press my ass to my webcam and post that. Except I really don't want to get ass-prints on my laptop screen since I just cleaned it yesterday. I also worry about being flexible enough to webcam my ass without hurting my back, so I'd probably end up having to hire a stunt-ass anyway. Which begs the question... where exactly would one hire a stunt-ass? It's not like they advertise in the Yellow Pages (well, they might in L.A., but certainly not in my neck of the woods).

And now I'm just tired. Tired of driving. Tired of working. Tired of staring at a computer screen.

But not tired of playing Lego Batman on the Wii.

Which is probably a lot more fun than stupid BlogHer or dumb Comic-Con anyways!

At least that's what I'm telling myself...

    >>This sucks twelve shades of Sunday

    I’ve never heard the expression before. Googling it turns up nothing. Neither does Bing. (Even when you knock off “this sucks.”)

    The expression says so much. The meaning is clear.

    You appear to have just made it up. And in a moment of despair.

    There are days and days when I think for hours and hours and don’t come up with anything nearly as clever.

    (This comment for example.)

    Well, I have never really liked Sundays. 🙂

  3. Jeff says:

    Try Craig’s List for the stunt-ass. Works every time for me. At a time like this, one wonders if Senator Larry Craig feels pride with his namesake. He could have saved himself a lot of grief looking there rather than an airport bathroom.

  4. because you never have, i would totally notice if you put up something that sucks.

    man I wish I were at ComiCon…..

  6. A Lewis says:

    And guess who overnighted in San Diego with ComicCon going on all around him last night?? Oops…Iprobably shouldn’t have said anything.

  7. Robin says:

    You could hire a midget to be your stunt ass double: or….with the economy doing what it’s doing right now, I am sure they would appreciate the money.

  8. Hilly says:

    I have found this to be a great time to gather my ass up out of my chair and do some of the things I’ve been wanting or needing to do. I’m not even going to *try* to blog new material now…pffft.

    I can’t believe you’re not at ComicCon. Then again, if you were, I’d be crying that I am no longer there to meet up with you. 🙂

  9. I do stunt ass work all the time. Sorry you can’t make it to Comic-Con this year, but next year I’m hoping you’ll return since I’ll clearly have to introduce the baby to this event. Gotta start that critical education right away!

  10. Sybil Law says:

    Well, if it helps, I’d rather hang out with you playing Wii than be at Blogher, anyway. 🙂

  11. Sarah says:

    Why would you need a stunt ass, I thought that’s what you kept Vahid around for?

  12. Jodi says:

    more fun than BlogHer I am sure. But more fun than ComicCon?

  14. martymankins says:

    Just think, if you were at ComicCon, you could have met up with Neil Gaiman and Wil Wheaton.

    But as you said, you will always have LEGO Batman.

  15. whall says:

    I know a certain tote bag of Yes origins that might could be coaxed to be your ass for you. It’s not the worst thing he’s done on webcam.
