Hey, guys… Yeah, I have to apologize for yesterday’s post. I didn’t do the dishes before school so Mom took away my computer. In order to preserve Post A Day, I begged my little sister to update my blog. She did, in exchange for my labor in most of her chores.
So I breathed a sigh of relief. The blog would be taken care of. ….That is, until I read what she actually wrote.
I doubt you need me to summarize it, because it’s right below this, with a big whopping misleading title (THANKS, sis), but basically Hope said, “hii guyz alohA gotz groundedful so I’m giving ya video ooh watch shiiiinyyy!111!1!1!! invitemeback kthxbai pleeeeezzz?1?@24y934y3a??11?1!”.
Upon actually reading it, this morning, I facepalmed and called her in. “Hope,” I said as calmly as possible, “This is a blog post. Not a text message. Not only that, but this is a blog written by and to a group of picky, Grammar-Nazi writers. My audience may be widely teenagers, but they’re not the normal kind– they’re the nerdy awesome kind.”
All condescending facepalming aside, I reassure you that yesterday’s catastrophe won’t happen again. I’ll get my mom to post, or my dad, and you’ll get a ten-thousand word lecture on the differences between an A-380 and an A-270 (planes…. I think?), or all the intricacies of the public education system, instead.
Or I’ll just have a YouTube video embedded and ready to post, where all I have to do is tell Hope to click the “publish” button.
Regardless, thank you all for being so good-natured about the interruption of normal programming. And I already did the dishes today, so you don’t have to worry about tomorrow’s post being that…. unreadable.
On the plus side, I had some extra time to play Pokemon last night, and my Monferno evolved!! I’ve been waiting for that for months. “Brisingr” is his name (nerdy Eragon reference), and he was my starter Chimchar. Look at how my little boy’s grown! ❤
