that when people talk about the LA Bloggers they hardly ever mention your name?
me: some people do.
s: but not a lot of people.
m: not eveyone knows me.
s: yes they do.
m: says you.
s: your blog kicks ass
m: says you.
s: you dont think it does?
m: when people talk about LA Bloggers, theyre talking about war bloggers most of the time.
s: we’re at war?
m: i think so.
s: emmanuelle doesnt write about the war.
m: emmanuelle is a sexy cool french babe.
m: so i think they think shes talking about the war, they just dont know french to see that shes not.
s: but i know how competitive you are, its gotta eat at you.
s: but you even have a web site!
s: are you kidding me? The Rallying Point gets linked all the damn time!
m: shh, no ones supposed to know that thats greg.
s: what? oh, whatever.
m: well, i appreciate your concern but it’s unneccessary. i have plenty of readers. and i dont write every day to get put on everyone’s left or right hand columns.
s: that’s a damn lie.
m: i write so that the hot chicks will fall for me.
s: yeah, hows that working for you?
m: the jury’s still out.
s: i got news for you, putting pictures of sassy tennis players and slutty singers isnt gonna make the ladies want you.
m: you never know.
s: i think that dentist extracted more than a tooth from your head. that auction by the way is completely gross.
m: why, thank you.
s: thats not a compliment.
m: sure it is, people love being grossed out.
s: but it’s such an easy trick.
m: not really, people see gross things all the time on the web, it’s almost impossible to shock an adult or gross them out nowadays.
s: “Friends” is still #1. the world is still mighty soft.
m: people watch “Friends” cuz they’re sick of being shocked all the time. they’re comfortable with the characters. it’s safe. nothing bad ever happens.
s: there’s never been “a very special ‘Friends'”?
m: i wouldnt know. i dont think ive seen more than 2-3 episodes.
s: you should watch it tonight, i think Joey gets a haircut tonight.
m: nah, im going to the LA Blogger thing tonight.
s: oh yeah, Virginia Postrel’s gonna be there.
m: yeah, im looking forward to meeting her.
s: did you read her thing the other day?
m: im ashamed to say, i dont think ive ever read her.
s: oh you should, shes brilliant. but married, sigh.
m: she writes above my head. i dont know nothin about what she talks about.
s: so why do you want to meet her then?
m: i like meeting people, and i wanna see if she’s nice.
s: was Instapundit nice?
m: that dude was super nice.
s: i see Prof. Volokh has a blog now.
m: yep. that guy was super nice too.
s: meet any Bloggers who werent nice?
m: hmmm let me think. i met one guy who sorta had a holier than thou attitude, but i just talked to everyone else instead.
s: who was he? i love juicy gossip!
m: to be honest, i dont even remember his name. im horrible at names. i checked out his site the next day, it was no big deal. he doesnt get mentioned anyhow.
s: what did he look like?
m: oh i remember him now.
s: who who! spill!
m: tony pierce.
s: you suck.
m: ha ha.
s: lets fight some crime.
s: as in now.
m: but first i should thank JC for the buck.
s: hurry up, then.
m: ok, let’s rock.
