The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

Never tell me the odds

Miss Black and White meets up with a friend, the subject turns to Star Wars, and the truth comes out:

He was surprised and asked me if I knew what this meant. I shrugged. He said, "You know you can have any man you want. It would be like a guy who loves to go shoe shopping. There are three girls on the planet who truly enjoy Sci Fi stuff."

From which proceeds the following:

  1. There are presumably three guys on the planet who enjoy shopping for shoes;

  2. Mere delight in the fact that the store actually has something in my size (I wear a 14 EE) probably doesn't count;

  3. My dance card isn't going to fill up any faster.

And you know, I probably could have cut the last couple of words.

Is there a reason my posts don't show up here
or at Cam Edward's thing?

I haven't seen any instances of your stuff not showing up here, although the database updates slowly at times.

Cam uses some filtration system that blocks a lot of things; it's caught me a couple of times.

You can't see it if it doesn't show up.
That's why I asked the question.

What happened to the Belligerent Bunny Blog?

MT sends me an email every time someone leaves a comment.

And Anna's posted a few times this year, though nothing like her old schedule.

Do you think she was having a lot of trouble with Blogger, computer, etc?

Blogger acts up occasionally, but I think more likely she just goes through periodic burnout and decides she has better things to do.

And miss all this?

Angi likes Battlestar Galactica, the new version. I hate shopping for clothes or any other apparel, but I love this shoe blog.

CG, Thanks for giving MS B&W some of your valuable bandwidth. If we have another OK Blogger Bash, I'll be sure to invite her

"You know you can have any man you want. It would be like a guy who loves to go shoe shopping. There are three girls on the planet who truly enjoy Sci Fi stuff."

As a girl on this planet who truly enjoys sci fi stuff, I can assure you that this, sadly, is untrue.

Well, that's three so far. Has the supply been exhausted?
