Really let's you know where you stand.

I thought about posted a little something in regards to the latest meme that's making the rounds yesterday, but I decided that I'd let it go. Rise above, if you will. Be the bigger and/or better man. I went out to a fish-fry, then went to the bar. Immersing myself in liquor and pool, but it was no use. There it was in the background...haunting me. Making me feel like Ichabod Crane riding down a lonely wooded lane. Knowing that the horseman was out there, just not when he would strike.

Today, I figured that spending time with Mom and Dad would help me get by. Maybe a couple of football games would help. I mean, Sure. I haven't been blogging much lately, and I admit that the elevator trade may not be as interesting to most folks as it is to me. But to be completely snubbed by someone who you thought was special, and you thought that they thought you were special too. Well, some wounds never heal.

What am I talking about? This is what I'm talking about. Then there was the unapologetic gloating of this guy, that just drove the knife in a little deeper. How on earth could she have left off the (self-described) "Most gifted wordsmith of our generation"? Me. Even Bill made the top ten, and I wasn't even given an honorable mention. That just stings.

Just for the record, I'll no longer be responding to the moniker "Johnny - Oh". From now on call me "Chopped Liver".

Darling, dearest Johnny!!!! You forget that I am so old that I have forgotten my real age and must resort to celebrating the anniversary of the last age I remember clearly....Rapidly approaching senility is my only excuse for not including you in the Honorable Mention catagory (plus I was really pressed for time because I needed to leave for work and sort of randomly picked names from my blogroll just so John Hawkins would link to me....)

Forgive me?

Can we start calling you "Choppy" for short? :-P

S'Okay Susie-girl. Hammering out that little diatribe actually cured me of my (shudder) beal that had been plagueing me all last weekend. I don't know if I've said it before, but you're a saviour!

Harv, I'm not sure if Choppy works. How about Mr. Choppy? Sounds more dignified eh?

I just got a great deal on used cars that I wanted. It was tough making a choice which of the used cars to buy, but I did it.
