Goodmornoonevening, everyone! Welcome to the return of Wednesday Haterade! The “Hate” was on hiatus last week on account of a disk crash at VPS.Net. Thanks, VPS! You’re awesome! NOT!!!! (Thankfully, my awesome host, BlogRocket Hosting is dropping VPS like a potato grown in the fields outside Chernobyl).
But you didn’t stop by to read about my hosting woes, right? You came for the “hate!” Well, shame on you! Don’t you know it’s wrong to hate?
At least that’s what my new blogging buddy (and new daddy–again) Jared Hollier tells me: teh hates is teh bads. Well, Jared, in case you didn’t notice: I’ve made a cottage industry of “hate,” and that’s not gonna change anytime soon!
Thus, I “hate” you! And you draw badly, too! (Else why is your blog called “Badly Drawn Bible?” An expiring mind wants to know!)
Not only that, but according to #5 in the linked list, you’re a Harry Potter-reading pastor! Can you believe that, folks! This pastor not only reads Harry Potter, he also defends those*, like him, who are entranced by Harry’s enchanting spell! Can you believe it?
That’s, that’s all I have to say about that! Now that I’ve gotten that off my chest, what are you waiting for? Get over to Badly Drawn Bible, and begin “hating” Jared for your ownself!
While we’re on the subject of new blogging buddies, another blogger new to me is Ricky Anderson. Ricky and I recently became acquainted through teh intertubes, and I can already tell that I’m gonna “hate” him. Hard. Let me yell you why:
He is, like me, a “computer guy,” only he’s younger, funnier, and better looking. And like Donald Miller, I’m told that he smells incredible. I don’t know this, mind you, it’s just what I’ve been told.
I, on account of my ketogenic diet, do not. Smell incredible, that is. So it’s just another notch in the belt of “hate” I wear for Ricky. (Sing it with me “Oh, Ricky, you’re so fine…” Not!).
Not only that, but his Twitter handle is just weird. “Arthur2sheds.”
Where’s the “Ricky” in that?
I mean I saw that name in my list of followers, and thought, “Oh, great! Here comes the lawn equipment storage spam!” And promptly unfollowed him! 😉
(And here’s something to ponder: folks, do you think he’d let me guest post for him tomorrow, if he knew of my strong “hates?” At least I think it’s tomorrow–could be next Thursday. His email wasn’t clear).
Oh, that lack of clarity? We can blame that on Ricky’s new baby! That’s right! Ricky’s a new daddy! And I don’t think that even I can “hate” that! (Actually, I think after accumulated sleepless nights, I think it’ll be Ricky that’s “hatin'” life. Just sayin’).
Like my wife and I, Ricky and his wife were told that they couldn’t have any children. But it looks like God had a second opinion! So congrats, Ricky! I “hate” that I won’t ever again experience the thrill of new life the way you are (my kids are five and thirteen–proving that God does indeed possess a sense of humor) now.
So, if y’all’d like a glimpse into the scary mind of a blogging geek, head over to Ricky’s blog. Maybe you’ll find something there worthy of your “hate.” At least I hope so. I don’t wanna be alone in this!
In all seriousness, both Jared and Ricky are great guys, and very worthy of your reading attention. Congrats to you both on your new additions!
*It was me.
Alright, what do y’all “hate” about Jared and Ricky? Share away!
