Still accepting valiant praise

I don't know why I do this, but whenever I'm reading adult blogs-- as in, like, blogs written by those who get paid in part or whole for their writing and are generally rather talented people I admire quite a lot-- I scan their blogroll, as if one day I will miraculously appear as some beacon of hope for other young writers out there. Or something.

It's a fantasy of mine that reminds me of when I was twelve and secretly hoped that Rider Strong would quit "Boy Meets World" and move back to Sonoma County because he was completely in love with me. Okay, so the chances were a little better than average since I used to jump on his trampoline when I was three, but still.

Yeah, this is just like that, except for the in love part.

In other news, the Prog Blog's contest period has ended, which means I'll either start recycling favorites here, or stop bugging all three of you about reading it, or both.

Yaman emailed me his objections and approval to my Alter Ego's post about his case, for which I am grateful because at least it was worth reading for someone. I have a feeling that my minute and his 15 minutes of fame on the issue are rapidly coming to a close, but at least we're moving on.

Ah, how interesting. I had always hoped his face would end up in a blender. Because, you know, everything about that show BLEW.

So hostile, you seem.

Everyone has a show, or a habit, or game, that maybe you would never watch/do/play now, but that were no big deal at the naïve age of 12.

I happen to still love William Daniels (and he totally should have won that Tony for 1776), but I would hardly consider it entertaining to watch that show again.

The only thing awesome about that show was when the Savage brothers duked it out. Could be in the top ten moments of TV history. That show just made me ridiculously uncomfortable the moment they started taking things waaay too seriously.

But of course, everyone loves Feeny.
