You know that feeling of cognitive dissonance? Your eyes and your brain are at war with each other. In my case, when that happens, the feeling is very similar to the one I get when I think I sent an email to the wrong person. I’ve had that feeling a couple of times in regards to the blog. Once was when I found out Jezebel linked to one of my pieces and I didn’t find out for about three months because I am the worst.
I had that same feeling today. I subscribe to George Takei’s feed on Facebook because he cracks me the hell up. So I see a picture I made posted to his Facebook page. I haven’t checked Pinterest yet, but the same stuff tends to get posted there as well. Uh, yeah. A picture I made for a Today’s Mood was posted by George Takei. (MR. SULU, PEOPLE!) Or really his Facebook Minions, I suppose. I’d like to have Facebook Minions. Hell, I’d settle for generic minions.
Anyway, at this point it’s been shared
3,978 15,092 times. Which is awesome. And I’d just like to put out there that it came from this blog. Because drinking as much as I have to in order to keep this puppy rolling is not easy, and I’d like a little credit. Also, I’d eventually like to monetize this bitch so I can hire a laundry minion. That doesn’t really have much to do with the issue at hand, I just wanted to get that out there. I get how the internetz work. You put it out there, it gets stolen. I would like to start a movement so that everyone who reads this goes to his page and posts the link to my blog, but I am nothing if not apathetic.
Just remember, if you read this blog, you saw it here first.
