I’m Sorry, We’re Out Of Time

Like sands through the hourglass, these are the daze of my life...

Every year is getting shorter
Never seem to find the time
Plans that either come to naught
Or half a page of scribbled lines

See that list of blogs over there on the right? You might have to scroll down a little. It’s below those ad things we hope will make us a fortune someday. Hopefully, before we die. In any case, that list is missing a whole whack of really great blogs. I just haven’t found the time to add them all. I will, I promise. First, though, I need your help.

See, I work full-time. I study part-time. I have 3 demanding wonderful children. And of course, there’s Jepeto. ‘Nuff said. I ignored everyone and everything in my house for 3 hours tonight, and I still didn’t get to read and/or comment and/or both on all the blogs I love. Not to mention Tribal Blogs. Groan.

So, I am asking for a favour. I’ll put in all the blogs I love in that list over there on the right. When I do, though, could everyone in the top third of the list post on Mondays, the middle third on Wednesdays, and the final third on Fridays? Then I could do the slumber party at Tribal Blogs on Saturdays. I could write on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays.

Look, it’s either that or I hit you all up for $ so I can quit my job and free up a few hours for blogging. I’ll leave it up to you. And thanks, I really appreciate your cooperation.

  • Gee Wiz…I was just about to start blogging based on where ever I fell in the list. But *sniff *sniff *tear (lip trembling) I’m not on the list.

    (exiting the room with my head hung in shame, wiping snot and tears as i go)

  • I am too tired to calculate which third I am in. But I know I’m not on Monday. So this comment is for last week.

  • Man, you are tired. Comments can be made any day, any time. It’s your posts that I need you to schedule according to my instructions above. Or you can send me cash. Lots of it.

  • Roschelle, beautiful, don’t you dare hang that gorgeous head of yours! Before this day is done, you will be on the list. You know I love your blog!

  • awww nicky, you’re so sweet. i love your blog too!

  • You know, I hate posting on Fridays because mostly everyone else has gone away for the weekend or doesn’t blog and my site is rendered practically commentless. So, it’s like, Helloooooooo? “Is there anybody out there?”


  • Now I can post. Dang! Okay, Nicky Darling, please don’t give me directions because you know I don’t “do” directions. I will just come here every day and hope you have something to share,but if you don’t, I’ll just come back the next day. Or you could just come and live with me and let Alex support you while we shop all day and drink wine and eat cheese all evening after we have written our love letters to Ziva and sent her provocative photos of us in compromising positions. It would be such fun!

  • Nonamedufus

    Um, yeah, sure. *snorts*

  • I’m last. I’m pretty sure that means that I’m allowed to post on Mondays between 3pm and 6 pm, Tuesdays if it’s a full moon, Wednesdays at exactly 7:54pm, Thursdays if a chicken walks backwards over the road and on Fridays if it’s raining cats and miniature chihuahuas. I’m okay with that.

  • I knew you would be reasonable Z. And I’m very impressed with the way you picked up the schedule so quickly. I thought I might have to spend a ridiculous amount of time explaining it all.

  • And here I thought I was being reasonable. Your snort leads me to believe you don’t agree. Fine, go ahead. Post on a daily basis. See if I care.


  • LOL! Now there’s a solution I didn’t think of, and I’m quite upset with myself for it! 🙂

  • Ok, I think I may have a few possible solutions:

    1) Rename your blog “And When I Reach”
    2) We put your alias 00dozo in the list instead
    3) You move to Russia so you can post on Thursday your time while still technically adhering to my schedule.

    You’re welcome. 🙂

    Why do you think I quit posting, Nicky? It was because I care about you and your kids–all four of them. (God, I crack myself up!)

    I know the problem, though. It’s hard to keep it up, isn’t it?

    Oh, sorry about that. I was still thinking about the sheep, panda and M’s mother in Ziva’s most recent post. I’m sure you understand.

  • Wow. That’s quite a list of things tugging at you for attention. Thanks so much for taking the time to always come by and read my posts. I may make it real easy on you and only post once a week for a while — on Sundays. I think my muse is off in rehab or someplace.

  • I know how you feel. My blog roll is crazy extensive and its very difficult to keep up! I truly appreciate the time you make to read and comment on my humble blog. You ALWAYS make my day!

  • Brookeamanda

    Hey, no problem! I post on Mondays, Wed, and Fridays!!! And if another blogger every bumps me out of the #1 spot on the list, I’ll be very, very sad. Don’t follow anyone who’s name starts with the letter “A”:)


    *world explodes*

  • Jepeto

    Hi everyone. If you don’t get replies or comments from Nicky, do not worry. We are indisposed for now. Jake is in the hospital, getting better from what they think is a viral pneumonia. She sends all of you a nice kiss. 🙂 she’ll be back very soon! Thanks. Mike will take over, right? Cheese Mike or Geet Mike. 🙂

  • Oh No! Sending you all my thoughts, love, healing vibes, prayers and all that jazz. xoxoxoox

  • Mikewj

    Excellent comment, Cheesy Mike! You are probably the most consistently brilliant blogger in the blogoverse, which is why I always read your comments. All I wish is that you could comment more, especially in Nicky’s absence.

  • Mikewj

    Speaking of things “tugging” at Nicky’s attention, have you met Jepeto? That dude’s hilarious!

    (CheesyMike, filling in for Nicky)

  • Mikewj

    Thank Meleah. I want to have intimate relations with you and Ziva and Linda. Please come to Canada.

    (CheesyMike filling in for Nicky.)

  • Mikewj

    The letter “A” is disgusting and I’d never follow anyone who starts with an a. I feel much the same about the letters “g,” “u” and “h,” but I’m quite fond of “z” and “q.”

    (CheesyMike filling in for Nicky)

  • Mikewj

    Oops! I just realized that I filled in for Nicky as CheesyMike instead of GeetMike, aka BonyMike, because I’m a) an idiot and b) sick myself and not thinking clearly. Sorry, CheesyMike.

    (GeetMike/BonyMike filling in for Nicky AND CheesyMike)

  • Um…?

  • Mikewj

    When things get better, you can join me, Meleah, Ziva and Linda in the massage oil room here in Montreal and we’ll make your ego feel all better, okay?

    (BonyMike/Geet Mike filling in for Nicky.)

  • Mikewj

    Oops! I also just realized that all the dirty comments I left while filling in for Nicky made me sound dirty instead of making her sound dirty. I hope nobody notices and takes offense.

  • He means BonyMike!

    Man, this is getting confusing. Awesome, but confusing.

  • Finally, someone who recognizes me for who I am: Brilliant Writer, Saviour of the Internet, and Ruler of Cheese.

    Thanks, man.

  • Ah ha!

  • Mikewj

    It is confusing. Allow me to clarify: Jepeto indicated that either CheesyMike or me, BonyMike (aka GeetMike), would fill in for the very busy Nicky. So I thought it would be funny to fill in for her, writing in her voice. Unfortunately, I made two miscalculations. One, it’s my avatar, not hers, that appears next to my rude comments, indicating it’s me, not her, doing the writing, which sort of takes away the punchline. Two, I both sick and tired, and not thinking clearly, and I signed off as CheesyMike instead of BonyMike, aka GeetMike. Basically, I think I fucked it up. Totally. But in the words of both Kobe Bryant and Tiger Woods, it seemed like a good idea at the time.

  • Mikewj

    Boy, I really fucked up my own joke.

  • I got it now!

  • Good God! I never saw this. I’m so glad things are looking up now!
