New Blog Post

I’m sorry I haven’t updated in so long, but between the Wii, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic, Animal Crossing, El Goonish Shive, the new season of Avatar, the fall premieres, Mamma Mia! (the exclamation point is part of the title, BTW), decorating my room, Greek (new show on ABC family, go to to find out more information whilst you’re wondering how I can plug this show so shamelessly), the new season of How I Met Your Mother, Convincing my mother to let me preorder the new Comedity book (still working on it), the running out of excuses, and all the procrastination, I just couldn’t find the time, but I have now found time to write a new blog post, so without further ado (drum roll)… here… is… the new… blog post!

But first, because I’m sure you all want to see my new reading list, here is my new reading list (we’ll get to the actual post eventually, I swear):

Complete Tales And Poems Of Edgar Allan Poe

Romance of the Three Kingdoms (still haven’t finished, still on book one)

Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

The Collected Stories of Arthur C. Clarke

Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy (series) (this is my fourth reread, in case you were keeping track)

Here we go with the new post.

In just three sentences the post will be here.

This is one sentence.

This is one other sentence.

Here it is.

I was just thinking about frequently asked questions and how the questions are either asked by people who already know the answers, asked by people who have enough information to figure out the answers themselves (and are, presumably, just very lazy), or not really frequently asked. Doesn’t this make you wonder what a real FAQ and answers thing would look like? My guess is something like this:

Q: where did I leave my car keys?

A: check the glove compartment

Q: mom, why are you making me read To Kill A Mockingbird?

A: because it’s a classic (or some such nonsense)

Q: can I play until I lose?

A: no

Q: can’t I play just one more level?

A: no

Q: can I finish this song?

A: no

Q: would you mind if I played this song really loud?

A: yes, I mind

Q: what?!?!

A: I mind!

Q: talk louder, I can’t hear you over the music!

A: UGH!!!!!!!!

Q: I still can’t hear you

A: never mind

Q: what?!?!

Q: why doesn’t Gifted Gear Reviews update more often?

A: because the author has the attention span of an eleven year old (i.e. he can sit quietly and listen to an entire Nightwish album, but he takes a week to write one blog post… unless he doesn’t want to take a shower:-)

And there you have it, an FAQ that is actually filled with frequently asked questions.

Well, that’s it, I’ll see you next week (or whenever I get around to updating again).

p.s. I would like it to be known that this post was done in three days, not seven

p.p.s. Please send more fan-mail, because the more fan-mail I receive, the more evidence I have fans and the more evidence I have fans, the more I’ll try to update weekly

p.p.p.s. the above is only a theory and thus has yet to be confirmed.
