Thank you for your Participation

I have a job for you. I need to compile 15 to 25 posts into a sort of "best of" collection. This isn't for a book or anything, don't get excited. I don't think my measly 36 followers and I are going to score a book deal any time soon. But back to your job and what you're going to do for me: I do not believe that I am a good judge of what posts are funny. There are things that crack me up, but make saner people look at me like I'm nuts. My favorite joke ever involves dead monkeys falling out of trees, and I've been telling it for 25 years.

Sometimes, at night when there's nothing left on TV, I go back through the archives of this blog and reread posts, and sometimes I crack myself up, and sometimes, most of the time, I shake my head and wonder why on earth I bothered to click the "publish" button.

This is where you come in: I would like you to tell me what your favorites have been, if you have any. Maybe you read this blog as a way to self flagellate, punish yourself for wasting too much time on Facebook, and you think I'm a dull hack. Its fine if you do, but you do not need to apply for the job that I am asking readers to do for free, for me.

There are a number of ways you can do this:
1) Maybe you are a savant of some kind and you can remember the precise dates of your favorite posts.
2) Maybe you have some kind of shrine to me in your home, and tacked to it are printed copies of your faves.
3) Or, maybe you have nothing better to do right now, and you could pick a time period, on the right hand side of this page and read through a bunch of my bullshit and see if you think anything you read belongs in the "best of" category.

So, if you are interested in helping me out, please leave a comment to tell me what your favorites were (see how I'm assuming there was more than one? My ego is out of control) or what time period you would like to cover. And just remember that I write all this stuff for your, FOR FREE, and I've been doing it for over three years, and I've never asked you for ANYTHING (except that time I asked you to click on my google ads, and google kicked me out of their ad program. I was so close to that hundred bucks, too.)

Of course my favorite is when fancy white pants throws up in a baggie on the way to Costco :) Also loved "Who Cares Where I Come From" and "Oprah Recap Part 1 and Part 2".

I especially loved the one about the hunky Italian man selling the execs equipment.

...that would be -exercise- equipment. Damn you, Autocorrect!

Your description of that concert you went to with your mom killed me!

Loved the first mamacita/margarita post which introduced the white pants. Also, liked the one I featured in with my spaceship, however unflattering it was, also, you should probably post some from when you were recovering and talking about your illness/recovery. and your bouts with the gym thereafter. Oh, and the one where you described the loop closure and putting lawn chairs out to watch the madness. I could go on..... Do you want specific dates?

My 2 faves - the one where you talked about your friends recommitment ceremony and the barbie porn.
