Membership Drive

I was just noticing that I haven't conducted a membership drive for Bloggers Anonymous since we started this support group just over a year ago.  So, if you see that you are not listed in the membership column and you aren't afraid to admit that yes, you ARE addicted to blogging, leave your name and url here and I will add you to the roll.

Blogger's Anonymous


Hey gang, if any of you have a specific blog entry that you are particularily proud of, or just want to share with other readers, submit the url to the CarnivAol, which is a blog that showcases individual entries from within the AOL journal community.  Yes, AIM journals are part of this community.  Follow this link to see the blog and for instructions on how to submit your entry and I'll see you there.

 Wake up... grudgingly, (but then I remember the computer and I bounce out of bed.)

 Do my 'duties' in the bathroom, (quickly because the computer calls to me)

 Turn on the computer (this is a manuvere that can be completed in the dark thanks to a cyber-magnetic homing device in the tip of my right index finger)

 Pour a cup of coffee while waiting for Windows xp to load.  (too bad the computer doesn't load as fast as the coffee brews).

 Log on to AOL.

 Experience a feeling of peace and well being.

 Read e-mails from children who must forward any requests for funding or mediation.  This is the preferred method of communication since volume can be controlled and screen names can be ignored or deleted if need be.

 Read emails from spouse and wonder why he is fwd'ing a link to  Can't he see, I'm too busy to get a job!

  Check my horoscope so I know how I'm expected to behave today.

  Check lotto numbers to see if I'm a multi-millionaire yet.

 Realize that I am NOT a multi-millionaire yet.  Delete shopping cart at Macy's.

 Search for German bbq recipe to use for supper.

 Accept the risk of 7 years bad luck for deleting another Little Tommy chain letter.

 Consider ordering from the spammed penile enlarger catalog and switching them with spouse's One A Day vitamins just to see if it really works. 

 Log off as spouse's car turns up the driveway and turn on dishwasher to simulate work in progress.

 Intercept spouse on landing with beer and a promise to bring supper down while he relaxes on sofa infront of the TV.

 Rush upstairs and toss some frozen hotdogs into a pot on the stove.

 Log back on to AOL.

*Don't you hate when you read a journal entry that could have been written by you, that SHOULD have been written by you and you sit there hitting your head on the keyboard crying 'Why couldn't I have thought of that first?'

*Don't you hate leaving an inspirational or witty comment in a journal only to find out that 3 other earlier readers left almost the exact same comment?

*Don't you hate leaving an inspirational or witty comment in a journal, and then after reading it wishing you had made that comment an entry in your own blog?  (I've actually started to write a comment, been so inspired myself by it that I quickly x-out of the other person's blog without commenting and rush over to my own journal to make an entry based on my comment.)

 Okie dokie, my counter is really starting to climbing now.  Of course if it weren't for me and those pornospambots it probably would move at all but hey, I'm not picky so long as the numbers go up.
