I’m done with the media, I can’t take any more of their negativity. I wish it were true that one person can make a difference, I would be all over their asses and demand change in their reporting. Why oh why can’t they do their job in this era of Hope and Change and go find some HOPEFUL newsy things to report on? Has it occurred to any of the powers in charge that perhaps they are a big part of the problem with the depressing state of things? Granted we don’t want to be in the dark here but damn, people need to start hearing some good news for a change so we can maybe feel a little bit of hope.

So I’ve heard it reported around blogland that there is a shortage on ammo, damn me and my procrastination! Now that scares me. I’m certain that Mr. Hope and Change will do his best to make sure I don’t get any either. And then when the media finally decides to report on something positive like there’s still one person with food in their refrigerator, me,  I will have a limited number of rounds to take out the people trying to break into my house and steal my food.

Best blog tagline ever:

they took all my change I was gonna buy hope with, dammit.

The Man Found Me

February 4, 2009 at 5:12 pm (Monkey Business) (, , , )

I’m a bit creeped out. My last post was around 10:00 pm last night and according to my blog stats a certain company found me at 9:54 am.  I personally didn’t even mention this company, only pasted an article where their name was mentioned and provided a link. I did a quick Google search of my title, Corporate Whining, and came up #2. I feel so very special.

To borrow Ms. Drill’s soapbox again…

WTF? Do corporations actually have someone who sits in their cubicle all day and does nothing but Google to see where their name shows up? How do I get one of those jobs, I have great Google skills!

After 6 minutes and 36 seconds on my blog I hope they determined I am not a PR nightmare and will let it go at that. Or am I now on some watchdog list? That would so crack me up. Let’s see, she talks about: 

  • the voices/monkeys in her head
  • Stocking up on ammo
  • The Man
  • quotes Deadwood, John from Cincinnati, D Ali G
  • swears a lot
  • the aliens in her ankle
  • links to Dead Kitten Mittens (for the homeless!)

Obviously this woman is nutty as a fruitcake, a clear and present danger.

I am curious to know if any fellow bloggers have encountered this phenomena? Should I be cautious, should I mention their name more, should I be very prepared if I hear a knock at my front door, should I add them to my “fuck you…insert company name here” letter writing campaign?

Blogging is so much fun!
