How To Be A Dumbass

It's easy really. Just follow these simple steps.

  1. Before going to bed, start checking out BlogRoll for stuff from the day you missed earlier.

  2. Find something funny, thought-provoking, or something that, for one reason or another, catches your eye.

  3. Compose a list for publishing the next morning.

  4. Get tired and don't finish. Save as draft.

  5. Fall asleep watching "Operation Petticoat" on TCM.

  6. Get up early and finish the "Thursday Breakfast" post.

  7. Adjust the time on the post by looking at watch.

  8. Fail to change setting from Draft to Publish.

  9. Click Save.

  10. Don't look at site.

  11. Put laptop back in case to transport to work.

  12. Don't look at site until lunch. Notice the Breakfast post never appeared.

  13. Get real stupid look on face.

  14. Publish Breakfast post and hope nobody notices.

  15. Check usage log. Realize that nobody noticed.

Simple, isn't it? By simply following these easy steps, you, too can be a dumbass.


  1. Ha, we noticed! But all is forgiven!

  2. I was waiting for the breakfast post.

    pout, sniff

    Oh, wait- I'm the one that takes two weeks to post anything. I will shut up now.

  3. I'm with oddybobo on this one -- we noticed. (There wasn't even a pop tart!) And, yes, all is forgiven. (No, it doesn't make you a dumbass.)

    Even though I had noticed, I just figured it would be late, and since I hadn't yet had a chance to partake (due to other, less tasty things that had appeared on my plate, been dropped in my lap, etc) I wasn't too concerned -- yet.

    Thanks for the breakfast/brunch. I hope to get to enjoy it in a bit.

  4. You're making this far too complicated. It's taking you at least 14 steps to be a dumbass, I can do it in 1 or 2.

  5. Uh, did I miss something? Oh, crap. I'm sorry man -- that was a cheap shot. Thought I was at Scrappleface for a minute there.
