I Use Those Pointy Parentheses.

Hey, I managed to add some links! I didn't even have to get my son to do them for me. (He won't help me because I won't help him do his Spanish homework.)

Added to the links: Internet Ronin, Conblogeration and The Kitchen Drawer. Only one of these three openly can't stand me. I'll take those odds. They're all smart guys, they can all argue, they're all interesting. Even the one who can't stand me.

Now that I've figured out how to laboriously type html code into my template, if you have a blog I haven't linked to that I ought to link to, send me a message in the comments below.

  1. Blogger Pastor_Jeff Says:

    If you mean me, the truth is I can't stand you up. What do you weigh, 200?

    "they're all interesting. Even the one who can't stand me."

    Back at you.

  2. Blogger Michael Reynolds Says:

    Hah! I wish I weighed 200. I'm clocking in at about 225. Some years back I was 270. The trend is heading the right way, but 200 is what I'll weigh when I'm six months into some wasting disease.

    But no, I didn't have you as the guy who openly can't stand me. That'd be Icepick.

    Well, I for one have quite the fondness for all four of the referenced guys (obviously, I'm counting the blogger), as different as they are & etc., and whole-heartedly cheer the inclusion.

    And what does that make little ol' me, pray tell?

    Previous comment deleted and reposted to correct an inadvertent typo to reflect my actual intention. Resist the obvious temptation, Michael, please, please, (but feel free to laugh away privately, as is your due--as if I could stop you ; ) ).

    This seems like as good a place as any to see if I can comment here. Tried a while back without any luck.

  6. Blogger Michael Reynolds Says:


    Like I'm in a position to pick on someone for a careless word choice? Have you read this blog? I average a typo per line.

  7. Blogger Internet Ronin Says:

    This an honor Michael. Thank you. You will live to reret this decision, of course. Had you posted it a few hours before, I could have blamed my latest heart scare on your surprised and probably filed quite a nice nuisance suit as a result.
