Ah, Society's Norms: I Hardly Knew Ye

Holy crap, people! I neglect my Google Reader for two days and I come back to 36 unread posts! What in the name of Bill Clinton is going on here? I just spent the last hour catching up, each time expecting to run across that one nutjob-jerk who decided to put out 18 posts in 24 hours. Turns out everyone I know just wrote one-to-two posts per day. That's not nearly as exciting as I'd anticipated, and here I got my panties in a bunch over nothing. Who am I going to yell at now? Quit posting so much, people! I have a life you know! Obviously!

Here's a tidbit I was greeted with on Comcast's news feed today; I'll let you pick out the one glaring word that makes this statement unfathomable: "Former 'Idol' Clay Aiken tells People magazine that he could no longer hide his homosexuality." Let me just get the obvious over with here and ask, was he even trying?

Speaking of Clay Aiken, a few women, including Stephanie and Kristen, and I were playing Catchphrase, a game where you get a word or phrase, describe it, and the others guess. My phrase was "Clay Aiken."

Me: "That idiot from American Idol."
My team: "Ryan Seacrest! Simon Cowell!"
Me: "No, a singer."
Stephanie: "Clay Aiken!"
Ta-da.

I was going to post something about a website I've had an idea for for a while now--an idea that left me completely in stitches over my brilliant sense of humor. However, the more I thought about posting about it, the more I decided I would look incredibly insane doing it. And that while I might be laughing, everyone else would likely be staring at their computer screens in horror, wondering which authorities they should notify first. I considered asking someone like Stephanie if my attempt at humor would translate to anyone else outside of my own brain, but her brother's in town so she's busy thinking about someone besides me for once. It's a shame though--it cracks me up even thinking about it. It was going to have photoshopped pictures, music, a FAQ section, and everything. Oh well. Some crazy things are best left unexplored. NOW DON'T YOU FEEL BAD FOR SUPPRESSING MY CREATIVE GENIUS?!

I would NEVER suppress your creative genius. Go ahead...tell me your idea. :) I LOVE new ideas.

Ryann said...

Since when have you been concerned about what we think about your posts? After all, now that you have TEASED us with this , you have to post it. Like now.

Bonny said...

Your teaser was pretty dang funny, so I imagine that the actual idea is totally hilarious.

Stephanie B said...

You can call me, they will be in DC today, also I was wondering if you could take me to Costco...

Abby said...

Yeah. I'll consider it. But not before some informed opinions of my potential arrest first.

I will indeed sneak you into Costco. I'll call you later.

Heidi said...

Speaking as someone who has lived with you before, I highly recommend that you run the potential arrest trials before you post! (And you know I love your sense of humor, but just in case....)

Abby said...

Yeah, yeah, PARTY POOPER.

Have no fear, I have checked with other mostly reliable sources and they think my vision is not nearly as crazy as I feared.
