Sometimes I find the weirdest stuff when I'm looking for pictures to pilfer from the Internuts.
Sometimes, like yesterday, I find this:

Now I know that my cat Campos is (probably) a Maine Coon, PLUS I now understand the weird little sound he makes.
And today, when I was looking for pictures of Tony Orlando & Dawn, I found this:
It was HIGH-larious,
and especially compelling since Maureen Johnson, the woman behind the
ten easy steps, is a REAL WRITER. Of books and everything. Not just
pretend songs, like, oh, someone I know -- someone who spends her
valuable time looking for pictures of Tony Orlando & Dawn. Someone
But there -- see how I just did that? That is Maureen's Easy Step #7 --
7. BROOD A LOT ABOUT HOW MUCH YOU SUCK.
I'm learning already!
But that's not why I told you all of that (although truly, GO READ Maureen Johnson's post. From two years ago. It's that good). I told you all of that so I could tell you THIS:
Maureen Johnson is my new secret blog crush, maybe. I think, anyway. Heck, it's been only about nine hours -- whaddaya want from me, blood?! Maureen has started a new Ning site, which is a start-your-own social networking site, kind of like Facebook, only hipper. And more hip. More hippish. GAHHH, the pressure!
Good little New Media Douchebag that I am, I joined in a flash. Then sat there. Now what? I asked the empty room.
NOW . . . I will be blogging every day in April. Maureen has started a challenge, cleverly called BEDA, to Blog Every Day in April. I sort of prefer BEDIA, myself, but no one asked me.
So this is it. My April 1st blog post. Like it? Buy it!
Please consider Blogging Every Day in April. And if you do, come join Maureen Johnson and her merry band of bloglodytes, of which I am perhaps the newest and least substantial member. Worship me!
