I call upon thee to wreak my vengeance upon the accursed Orlando Sentinel, my brothers and sisters! For they have affronted the Great Solonor, Lord of Central Florida Blogdom (subject to ratification by two-thirds of the Blog Senate).
Remember the little interview I did for them that I was so very excited about? I know I mentioned it at least once… Anyway, they ran their stupid little story without me! ME! Best. Blogger. Ever.™
The sneaky little worms picked Halloween to run the story, knowing full-well that would be the day Pepperkat would break her foot. Hey…wait a minute…they probably arranged for that, too! Bastidges!
Of course, if I read Mark Lane every day (like I’m supposed to), I would have found out about it sooner. He is a worthy compatriot, left aghast and agog at the turn of events. Um, well, agog at least… But thanks to the ever-vigilant Dragonleg, I have been alerted to their nefarious plot to rob me of my richly deserved spotlight in what Lee (if that is his real name) calls “the fishwrap.”
Sure, sure, I know, the people they highlighted are very worthy and fun to read and all. (I love blissfully bitter already.) But they didn’t even include TECHFLUID–winner of the August 2002 Bloggy for Best Design. Sheesh! [heh heh…I’ll get on her blogroll, yet…mwahaha]
Sure, sure, it’s just a backwater news story in a backwater newspaper in a backwater town. But it’s my backwater town. I guess I could get a spot in the Apopka Planter, but it’s not the same.
Maybe the Bangor Daily News will do a story about bloggers who moved to Florida and use a silly pen name. Nah. They’d probably dis me too…
Help me decide, people. I have two choices. Continue with this vicious vendetta? Or pout?
Pouting takes less energy.
Who’s with me?
