Maybe, just maybe I'm not as amusing as I thought I was. Or have that great of a sense of humor.
Maybe THEY are playing a joke on me and I'll look around my office to see that there has been a hidden camera recording my aghast facial expression!
Or maybe I really did get rejected and dumped...even before we entered into the relationship stage.
What the hell am I blithering on about? Why, it's my rejection e-mail from humor bloggers dot com! Yeah. Can you believe it? I know; I read the e-mail about 10 times, called a friend and read it to them as well. Just to confirm it was what I thought it was.....
My friend Chrissy, who writes a wonderful blog ( http://www.ishouldabeenastripper.com/ - how that plug for ya' there Chrissy!) recently joined humor bloggers. I follow several blogs that are also members of humor bloggers, so I gave the web site a little 'look see' and decided to join in the fun and expand my humor horizons. I filled out the form, listed my blog, etcetera etcetera etcetera. I got a e-mail rather quickly that they would be getting back to me, that my registration was pending. After confirming my e-mail to show that I was indeed a real person, I waited for a response.
I did some laundry, picked my daughter up from school and checked my e-mail again. Still no word from the moderators as to whether or not my blog had been accepted into the realm of humor blogging. So I mowed the lawn, planted some plants, fed the pond fish-got way laid and read a few chapters by said pond and soaked into some of the beautiful sunshine. Went out to dinner with a friend, had a margarita and then checked my e-mail again upon my return. Hey now! An e-mail from humorbloggers dot com!
I opened the e-mail and here is what I saw...
Your registration at Humor Bloggers dot com has been rejected for the following reason:
NOTE: This email was automatically generated.
I was rejected?! Me? But why? It says for the following reason...but no reason was given! It was a complete blank.
I mean, geez. I guess I'm not THAT funny, but you might have at least given me a reason why they thought so.
I did send them over an e-mail asking why. But as of right now, I've no response from them. That was four days ago. I feel like a jilted lover, but before the love affair even started...
So I guess I'll just view Chrissy's relationship with humor bloggers dot com with wistful eyes. When I log on to some of my favorite blogs and see their badge of honour that they were accepted as funny and I wasn't; I will try not to feel slighted.
Maybe I should start my own blog community site where those rejected can commiserate. We'll call it the humorless bloggers dot com. Where 'We DON'T have your funny!!' It'll be the #2 social network and humorless blog directory on the net! Not seriously!
Bah. Who needs humor....
And if they decide to respond and re-check my blog for consideration?...I guess this entry on my blog will definitely define the boot.
