He Blogs/She Blogs: Or Not

Behind the scenes at He Blogs/She Blogs.


Petra: Chad.
Me: Yes, ma'am.
Petra: I need you to post tomorrow to tell people we won't be posting tomorrow.
Me: ....
Petra: Do I need crayons?
Me: Well, I wasn't really planning on posting tonight...
Petra: You want the pimp hand, Princess?
Me: Ok ok! I'll do it, just don't hit me again. Sheesh. What do you want me to do?
Petra: Just tell people that we're not doing our post today because we've got our first guest bloggers scheduled for Monday.
Me: Ok, so I'll tell them that CaJoh will be posting here on Monday.
Petra: Yes. And I'll tell them that Steenky Bee will be posting on my site on Monday.
Me: You're all pumped about that, aren't you?
Petra: So much! By the way, the first part of this was mildly amusing, this part sounds like a lame radio ad.
Me: I didn't even want to post!
Petra: My daughter doesn't whine as much as you.

Ok, so no He Blogs/She Blogs today. We'll be here on Monday with our first guest posters, Steenky Bee on Petra's blog and my esteemed competition for this job, Cajoh, over here. And just so we're all clear, I may have taken some liberties with Petra's character. I'm just tired and I've been taking suggestions from a fish.


Fish: My idea was great. You butchered it.

  1. Next time listen to your fish. Everything I have ever done was suggested by my fish, who is an oracle and only ever spouts wisdom.

  2. That fish doesn't look long for the world. Though I used to have one a fighter fish (or whatever you actually call them) and those things are impossible to kill when you need them dead.
    Not that you want to kill your fish, I'm just saying.
    Those things are hard to kill.

  4. Fish seems to have come down with a case of the circles.

    "You want the pimp hand, Princess?"

    Heh, heh.

  14. I had no idea that fish have the answers like that. I'm totally going to get a fish. If nothing else, it'll make a great post when my cat eats it. Or my husband - because it's still Lent.

  15. There is nothing that can't be solved with the pimp hand.

  16. Note to self: Don't take blogging advice from a fish.

  21. My fish committed suicide, so I think fish are dumb! You however, are funny. So it's a good thing you didn't listen to Mr. Fishy.

  23. # 1. I love the new header. Hopefully it hasn't been up for weeks and I am just now noticing.

    # 2. You were way too nice with your depiction of me. You forgot when I said "get with the program fucking pansy ass!" But I guess we don't want to let people in on the sado-masochistic relationship we have going on...

    # 3. Thanks for posting about not posting. I know I am a total fruitcake.

  24. Petra, don't call my boy bad names!
    Will check out both your blogs on Monday.
    ps that poor fish better not be in one of those tiny, confined little glass bowls! I'm going to be checking up on him when I come down!

  25. I think the fish is just taking a long nap!

  26. The fish has great ideas if you would just listen better. Monday should be interesting then.

  30. I think Maggie May is right...that fish may not be alive. It's speaking to you from the great beyond. You should listen next time.... :)
