Blogging to what point?

I was going to post this a while back when I thought nobody was reading this blog, but then I got a great comment from BLUR on my Router 1 post.   So maybe I should go back to posting more actively.  But the lead cartoon at least is  funny, so I will post it anyway.


Stolen from DT.


Excluding the super-post Today’s (real live) mermaid which has 1098 of those comments leaves NSL with only 1338 comments, or about 0.55 comments per post.  Not a big number, but maybe the post count itself is diluting because of all the daily mermaids, which rarely excite comment.

Here’s a few of the 15 points she makes about men, from a recent Esquire interview:

We want you to order Scotch. It’s the most impressive drink order. It’s classic. It’s sexy. Such a rich color. The glass, the smell. It’s not watered down with fruit juice. It’s Scotch. And you ordered it.

Stand up, open a door, offer a jacket. We talk about it with our friends after you do it. We say, “Can you believe he stood up when I approached the table?” It makes us feel important. And it makes you important because we talk about it.

No shorts that go below the knee. The ones almost like capri pants, the ones that hover somewhere between the kneecap and the calf? Enough with those shorts. They are the most embarrassing pants in the world. They should never be worn. No woman likes those.

Also, no tank tops. In public at least. A tank top is underwear. You’re walking around in your underwear. Too much.

No man should be on Facebook. It’s an invasion of everyone’s privacy. I really cannot stand it.

OK, I’m actually looking good here, on the Scotch, the door thing (most of the time), no long shorts or tank tops, and especially not being on Facebook, which I got tired of and quit several months ago.   So I’m almost a third of the way!

I wonder what she thinks about blogging.

    I like this blog, and I do comment sometimes.
    I worried that you had sunk, or got taken by the Rapture!
    I am glad you are back!

    I’m not a commenter, and I came for the Mermaids, but I’ve read every word you have pushed out for years now!
