In Which I Write A Semi-Worthless Post

Despite my previous claims of not blogging on the weekends, I just can't leave this damn thing alone. And while I can't think of anything truly worthwhile to post here today, there is something deep within me that wants, nay, needs to post.

It seems like I am hopelessly addicted to trying to make you laugh. If that, my friends*, is a crime, lock me up and throw away the key.

There are many reasons why I shouldn't blog on the weekends, the first of which being that most of those I follow only blog during the week. Whenever my Google Reader says there is a new post to read from any of you on the weekends, I don't realize that having a weekend post is like finding water in the desert, and that I should ration it out so it can last me as long as possible. Instead, I recklessly guzzle the words down, soon to die of thirst as the inevitable scorching Sun Of Boredom raises in the sky, once all new posts have been read.

There are, of course, more logical reasons why I shouldn't blog on the weekends, like the documented and proven fact that my blog traffic is significantly lower on the weekends, and also that I tend to write things I come to regret later. Whatever the reasons may be, I simply do not care. I am stuck here at my desk at work every Saturday, so I have no choice to subject you all to the drivel that I come up with, lest I resort to alternative methods of ending my boredom, like jabbing a mechanical pencil in my ear or making karaoke video tapes of me singing along to The Best Of STYX .

All of that aside, it turns out that I do have a point to this post today. I came across a picture of myself that I had all but forgotten about, and I want to share it with my fellow weekend bloggers. And for those reading this on Monday, well... I hope this gives you a good laugh, too.

This was taken a few years ago. I was experiencing the joy that only a cellphone with a camera can offer (yes, I know. I'm a geek). As an added bonus, you also get a rare glimpse into my college dorm room.

Happy Weekend, everyone.

*No, I'm not trying to be John McCain. You'll notice I only said "my friends" once, not after every sentence.

P.S. I also can't seem to shut up about this contest, either.

Dude, you're the hawtest dorm cop I think I've ever seen!

I know what you mean about the bloggy abyss on the weekends. I wish more people posted, because I actually have time on my hands on the weekend. During the week, it's a lot to keep up with everyone, let alone myself.

I'm posting today eventually, because I've got a new pet to bitch about. See ya later, alleygator.

Heather said...

I have occassionally posted on the weekends, and I've actually thought about mixing it up, an posting on weekends instead, because I have more free time to write and think up stupid shit to post about. If I had enough to say, I'd write every single day of the week. I see nothing wrong with posting whenever you want to. Blogging shouldn't feel like a job.

You are so cute! How exciting on a Saturday night to come across fresh Badass content! And a picture no less!

Margo said...

I liked your footnote about McCain. And the picture.
You made me laugh :)

Badass Geek said...

Lola: I have a lot more time on Saturday's, too. It's the last day of my work week, but everyone else is out enjoying their weekend. At least I know there are a few of us around.

Heather: I try to update daily, but that can be too much work at times. I try not to post anything too important on the weekends, so it doesn't get forgotten about by the time Monday rolls around.

Moonspun: You're going to make me blush!

Margo: If I've made you laugh, then I have been successful in my quest.

Kat said...

I post every weekend, both days usually. So you can always run to my place and get your weekend blog fix. I am still waiting to take the perfect fall picture. Think I am going to take the girls out today and make the perfect picture happen!

Aunt Becky said...

That dorm room was CLEAN. Holy crap.

And here's what I do. I used to blog on the weekends as well (back when I had more time/stuff to write about), but now, rather than blog on a particular day, I'll try and post 4-5 times a week. Be it on the weekends or not.

And your new tag line is awesome.

KT said...

Mission accomplished. You made me laugh. Thanks for posting. I miss people on weekends. LOL

Cape Cod Gal said...

Don't you look adorable. You kinda remind me of Silent Bob.

I am TRYING so hard to post on the weekends. I'm just very busy with crap. Here it is 10:52 pm on a Sunday and I'm finally catching up on weekend traffic.

I will try EXTRA hard next weekend to post, just for you.

scatterbrain said...

Thankyouthankyouthankyou! I REALLY needed a laugh when I plugged in this morning.....and you've made my morning bearable

THANK YOU - mmmwha! hugs! cuddles, squeezes and anything else The Boss will let me get away with.

How could anyone not smile when looking at your lovely, happy picture Badass? You are super-cute!

I used to post frequently over the weekend but soon realised that not many people read them .... also it's good to unplug sometimes.

Badass Geek said...

Kat: I'm thankful for your weekend posting. Otherwise, I might turn to the drink.

Aunt Becky: My dorm room was insanely clean. I am kind of a neat freak. My tag line thanks you.

Kt: Awesome! That's one!

Cape Cod Gal: Sweet! I'll be waiting for it!

Scatterbrain: I'm glad I could help... and I won't tell The Boss about the hugs/cuddles/squeezes if you don't. =)

Miss Grace said...

I don't blog on the weekends because I don't have time, or (right now) relevant keys on my keyboard to facilitate typing at home.

Love the picture.

Sus said...

I feel a "semi-worthless" post coming up myself. I feel I need to write. I want to write. But what to write? I have been looking forward to getting back to reading the new blogs, but now I can't think of anything to contribute myself. Ugh. I hate that.

Badass Geek said...

Miss Grace: Yeah, it can be hard to type without having a fully functional keyboard. My laptop is four years old now, and I've typed so much on it that I've worn the finish off on most of the keys. I'm surprised (and very glad) that they still work.

Sus: Sometimes all it takes is a
"semi-worthless" post to kick things off again. Try writing about one of your various injuries as a kid growing up, or talk about farting. Farting is a blogging goldmine.

LilSass said...

I loooove weekend posts. Although I wasn't around this weekend, this is still a nice treat. I think in the coming months I need to do ALL my writing on the weekends and post-date them for the week cause my time seems to be slipping through my fingers mon-fri.

Anyways ... I LOVE Styx ;-)

And BTW, you are allowed to call us FRIENDS cause I think we actually are. That grandpa "friend" of yours Mr. You Know Who .... HE DON'T KNOW ME!!
