Be Glad I Link You Not

I was texting with my buddy Mark M. tonight, and the topic was bloggers who link other bloggers with extraordinary regularity. To the point of the raised eyebrow.

I don't consider these things to be sexual, regardless of gender. I do find them to be sadly self-referential, and at some odd point hilarious. And, amazingly, the blogger so graced by another blogger's staccato links finds themself generating more and more of the same. Shocker: Ivan Pavlov played with dogs.

Me? I tend to write better after an insult or two. Especially if one graces me with a link to prove my parlous lack of intelligence, wit, or relevance.

Not that they are right, of course. I'm the best there ever was. I just hide a bit of it, lest you go all crazy, and form fan clubs and such. Or, God Forbid, start linking me.

It is always sexual. In what sense? I am not an old enough dog to know.
But the only place where I could link you were the word "pup"
Sorry about that

* buttoning up the shirts (first "snapping" the wrinkles out of the button line if necessary), straightening the arms on the hanger, and adjusting the collars before setting out to drip dry if you really want to get into details, there are at least a dozen more factors to consider upfront. go to holmes humidifier filter and decide which filter you need. in addition, you will be facing options on machines that either have programmable features, thermal carafes, automatic shut-offs and several other features. it features a blower and switch which can allow it to run continuously without dehumidification.
