I think "attentionplz" is my new favorite made-up expression. There's also a joke in here about unemployment and the ability to find "work" but it's probably offensive and I can't find it. Thanks, Jim.
Thanks for visiting my site so frequently, sending me pictures, making hilarious comments and generally being awesome. Running this blog is a surprising and uplifting part of my life, and I genuinely appreciate all of you making it that way.
I am attempting to pre-schedule posts for Christmas week (Christmas is the holiday I celebrate this time of year), though I expect traffic to be down as it usually is during times when people aren't working or in school. I know sometimes we all need a break for humor, especially in a time with too much or not enough family.
I might be a little lighter than usual but hope to not drop off entirely. I am busy this week with my wonderful family and my wonderful future in-laws, but hey. Some things are important. Like quotation marks.
Please send your submissions via email to bethanykeeley (at) gmail.com. I look at them all, but it might take a while to get to yours -- sorry! I love you all, but I only have so much energy in a day.
If you want your picture to make the blog DO NOT @tweet them, or leave them in a comment. I need them all in the same place. Make sure your emails are easily distinguishable from spam or viruses (I use gmail web interface, so images get previews).
I don't usually post the following: newspaper headlines, personal email, craigslist postings, unprofessional websites. I also tend to not crosspost things from other blogs, since I have so much unique material waiting for me to get to it.
Things I see a lot: silica gel "do not eat"; hair dryer labels; inside the bus "do not drill"; Wal-mart sign about IDs; coffee machine with "2" cup sizes; employees must "wash hands"; that failblog post.
