MISSING.

Oh, awesome.

I really thought I had a post ready for today because I had one in my draft folder scheduled for today that was titled “MISSING” but I just opened it up to check it and there’s nothing there.  It’s totally blank.  I suspect it’s maybe an ironic practical joke that I decided to play on myself when I was drunk.

Nice one, me.  You totally got us.  Again. Please stop drinking.

********************

It’s almost Sunday, so that means it’s time for the weekly wrap-up.

Let’s begin, shall we?:

What you missed on Ill-Advised:

What you missed on Good Mom/Bad Mom on the Houston Chronicle:

What you missed on my sex column (which is satirical and vaguely safe for work if your boss isn’t a complete douche-canoe):

What you missed in my shop (tentatively named “Eight pounds of uncut cocaine” so that your credit card bill will be more interesting.):

What you missed on the internets:

This week on Shit-I-didn’t-come-up-with-but-wish-I-did-because-it’s-kind-of-awesome:

This week’s wrap-up sponsored by my sweet friend Kevin who runs FreePrintable.net, which offers tons of free, printable templates and documents. And voodoo dolls and clip art and pictures of horses. Or print all out all of them and make the most surreal, free coloring book ever. Or print your own money. And then go to jail for using it to pay for ad spots. Seriously, Kevin…I *will* press charges. Get your shit together. PS. You can sign up for his updates here.

  7. I’m impressed that you actually write posts in advance at all. I have a few drafts in my folder but they’re ALL blank. I start them when I have a title in mind and then forget about them. Usually the title comes from something that’s pissing me off at the moment. Current blank drafts include: “Pick Up That Pile of Dirty Clothes or I Will Murder You in Your Sleep,” “I Want to Stab All the People on Dancing With the Stars,” and “The Woman Wearing the Caftan is the Devil and Must Be Stopped.”

    Are you sensing a theme?

    Also, I’ve just realized that I’ve been using my drafts folder as therapy. Good for me.

    It’s lovely that you provide these great links. I swear, over half the things I’ve found on the internet to amuse me daily are due to these wrap-up posts of yours. A couple of things – the top ten female blogger list guy – English is not the first language, no? And also – that Andy Sandberg cocaine video is backwards! Backwards! I’ve never seen that! Is that like a copyright thing? It’s not pirated if it’s not the real thing and it’s not the real thing since it’s backwards! Or is it more like backwards code or something?
