I’m always honored to be linked on anyone’s blogroll or in regards to any awards someone decides to pass on to me. I’m also honored when someone dedicates an entire post to my existence. Especially when that someone is as well respected as Ms. Ruth Holladay. I met Ruth this past weekend at Blog Indiana and knew immediately she was a woman to be taken seriously. A long time newspaper woman (37 years) and a local resource of honest opinions about news and politics, Ruth Holladay has a fierce following of, well, mostly old dudes.

Old dudes who don’t like me.

A friend of mine four years ago when people didn’t know what blogs were, would describe this as a tuna fish sandwich blog, in reference to the arcane, defocused, blithering, blathering, inconsequential communique that is useless only to the writer’s friends and those that might be compelled for some reason topically, to care. There’s insufficient gravitas to promote this blog save for its example as bloggorhea and vacuousness for this mid-50′s standard issue male. Blah. If I knew her, I might care because it would be in the context of friendship. But I don’t. And it’s unlikely I will and therefore find only miniscule gravitas.

Oh, really. You’re too kind. (BTW hendy, I don’t love the term “mommyblogger” either so if anyone wants to come up with a better name of what I do I’m open to suggestions. Oh, and bloggorhea? FAIL.)

Wait! There was a follow up comment!

“. . . tuna fish sandwich . . .”

That has been out in the sun too long and has become smelly and moldy and rotten.

“. . . example as bloggorhea and vacuousness . . .”

Amen.

I even got this in one comment:

“Moosh” doesn’t do it justice.
Eeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwwwwwwwwwww :( :(

Too much for this old male fart.

-Seneca

Oh you guys! I’m so flattered you took the time to not like me, with two! frowny faces even. I’m even more honored that Ruth backed me up, that she gave me a seal of approval. Even though she knew her readers wouldn’t take to kindly to my kind of blog.
That’s balls.

Thanks Ruth.

And thanks old dudes, you gave me a true chuckle.

P.S. Can I distract you with the fact that at least I’m hot smelly rotten moldy tuna fish sandwich?

No? Well, it was worth a try.

(Oh, and don’t worry about going over to defend my honor at Ruth’s place. They’re entitled to their opinion. Let’s show ‘em some Mommyblogger class.)

Comments

  1. You’re the funniest looking tuna fish i’ve ever seen..

    Tiffanys last blog post..not feelin’ it…

  2. well, can’t please ‘em all.

    I love your blog!

  3. That’s the thing about this blogging thing – it promotes communities and many people don’t think that there should be communities that don’t make sense to them.

    The whole point of your sort of blog is that it offers a perspective into life in general. And that’s the nice thing about it, that it’s single-perspective, not single-topic.

    Anyway, I like tuna fish sandwiches, mercury be damned!

  4. have you seen the comments? the poor people don’t know what a kegel is. so they probably don’t have ess ee ecks, and they probably don’t have any feelings, either.

    “kegels, i heard about them once, hope to never again.”

  7. Dude, I love tuna fish sandwiches. They are the yum.

  8. How is it that individuals who find so much entertainment in calling themselves farts and making diarrhea references doesn’t find something to love in a so-called mommy blog? Baffles the mind, I tell ya.

    Insta-moms last blog post..A very important letter

  9. People like Hendy give oldies a bad name.

    I mean, OBviuosly you’re much more popular than those oldies.

    And cuter, too! (Just a guess, but I’m fairly certain I’m right).

    The old bag has some wind left in him. I believe this should be in Guinness for the world’s longest, grammatically farted run-on sentence.

  11. Gosh, when I come across a site I don’t like, I just click the back arrow button. I guess these guys have a lot of time on their hands if they comment on all the blogs they don’t like. Nerts to them, I say.

    Erins last blog post..Sweet, Yo.

  12. Works for me! Bottom-teeth smiles are going to save the world, one grouchy old man at a time.

  13. My favorite though was the guy who said that he didn’t like your site because all of the photos made it too hard to pull up on DIAL UP. And then I had flashbacks of the annoying noise that AOL used to make when starting up and how I couldn’t use the computer and use the phone and HELLO, 1996! So good to hear from you again!

    Heather B.s last blog post..What the good ones are made of

  14. Love the blog. Love tuna. Love old farts. Love your photo. Great pic! Tell me, tell me, do you use tuna on your face at night to make it so clear? Gosh, darn, gal, you’re NEVER going to look like an old fart! Congrats! :)

  15. Casey, if you are the definition of a hot smelly rotten moldy tuna fish sandwich, sign me up for lunch!

  16. Smokin’ Hot!

  18. I love to read your blog! The old farts can go read the boring old fart blog and leave you alone! You look great in your pic.
