Ok, I'll bite
I see LadyX has made a point about not posting. I'll take a stab at an explanation as well, although mine won't be as eloquent as hers. I tried to post some silliness earlier (slug bug, my dog) but it just seemed silly. . . I know, it's supposed to be silly, but it seemed wrong. I guess I should get back to ranting over here but I really don't think I have a lot to rant about right now. I'm well aware that there have always been people who have more to rant about than I do but now it's different. The country is at war. We shouldn't bitch about every chick at the Gap who annoys us or every telemarketer that calls. We shouldn't worry about what people think about our religion or what our professor's think about us. We should be happy we have all that to bitch about in the first place. Maybe we should celebrate our right to rant?
Afterall, what's America without the Gap, telemarketers, freedom of religion and speech and annoying professors....ok, ok, I admit I could do without *most* of that stuff. However, the fact that it's here is a testament to America. What other place could overly priced clothes with cheesy ads become a household name? What other place could people actually make a decent living annoying others (and in some cases call it education)? What other place could get Jim Carrey, Michael Jackson, Mick Jagger and a slew of other conceited frea....nice people to pull together in a tragedy? Only in America would Paul McCartney, Billy Joel, Bon Jovi and the Backstreet Boys all sing together on one stage for one common cause (sounds like a horror film, but it was actually nice). You gotta love this country.
All in all, I always envisioned this site as a place for sharp, black humor from the three of us. Whether it be poking fun of our own inadequacies or poking fun of someone else's. Over the past year, sometimes it has exceeded my expectations (and I can pull posts from both LadyX and Bard to show that) and sometimes I found myself falling way below them. Maybe in the upcoming year I'll try to stick my personal vision (which doesn't mean Bard and LadyX should. We all had different visions for the site I'm sure) and I'll stick my whining in my personal blog.

Ew, now I feel dirty and stuff...thanks :P
Don't worry, when I pull your post it will feel reeeeaaal good (bok choy).
Yes, I should be shot for posting this, but I'm feeling silly!
Hey, I just wanted to say one thing. Ouch. Well, ok, you haven't actually "pulled" one of my posts, but don't you think it would hurt? I'm kind of attached to them, ya know. The least you could do is use something to numb the area before you remove one. Gee.
