The Dissemination of Thought

Just because it's in print doesn't mean it's intelligent…

A phone bill paid, an accolade and crazy searches folks have made

with 20 comments

I really need to pay more attention to my list of things to do. As I was paying my almost-overdue mobile phone bill this morning, I realised that I’d neglected to thank someone for throwing some blogging award affection my way.

Carrie from The Write Transition has nominated me for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award and, as with any accolade in the blogging world, there is a list of things I am obliged to do as a recipient. One of the duties is to expose 7 things about myself to those of you staring at your screens with drunken and sleep-deprived eyes. The other task is to bestow the Very Inspiring Blogger Award on 14 individuals of my choosing. Unfortunately, I’m going to fulfil neither responsibility. I’m going to mix it up and do my own thing.

Instead of giving you mundane facts about myself, I’ve decided to share 7 recent search terms that have guided disturbed perverts lost souls to The Dissemination of Thought.

how to sit beside someone you dislike

That’s easy. It’s called alcohol. In the unlikely event that a bottle of vodka doesn’t make the person to your right more bearable, I advocate flinging faeces at them. Childish and disgusting? Yes. Effective? Absolutely.

Well, that would explain why my Muse was missing in action last year.

sex you’re doing it wrong

You are if you’ve numbed your hand before using lipstick and a Sharpie to make it look like that girl in your English Literature tutorial.

Remember: you can’t have sex while there’s no one else in the room.

This is definitely doing it wrong. Source: passthemike.tumblr.com

show me ur dick guys

Slow down, sailor. You’ll have to buy me a drink first. And promise not to laugh.

the gigolo – dumb as a bag of sex toys.

Ladies and gentlemen, it would appear that we have a man-whore hater in our midst.

I’d probably consult a urologist about that. Quickly. I know it will be expensive, but trying to shove a webcam up your urethra to save money won’t help.

As far as my Very Inspiring Blogger Award nominations go, I’ve got 3. Sure, I could list 14 like the rules dictate, but you and I both know you won’t click on all 14. That being the case, I’d rather just tell you about a few blogs that fly under the radar and genuinely deserve recognition.

unrelentingamee – Amee is passionate about writing. Good writing. We bounce a lot of ideas and random thoughts off each other, and she’s one of the very few people whose opinion I trust enough to let read my work before I publish it.

the4gottenman – This blogger’s work is insightful, honest and often incredibly introspective. Besides that, he’s been one of my closest friends for well over a decade, which is no mean feat: I’m a pain in the ass to tolerate.

50 Items or Less – I was actually introduced to this blog by Amee. The brainchild of Ian Little, it’s all about mini sagas: a story told in exactly 50 words. While I love the concept of “less can be more” and uncluttered writing, the 50 word aspect reminded me of my attempt to rewrite Green Eggs and Ham using just 50 unique words. Check out Ian’s personal blog here.

  1. Oh, how I envy your search terms! I went through mine this weekend too – I think the most exciting was ‘High Five Porn’… CLEARLY someone I could never be friends with!

    • Perhaps the searchers were jubilantly high-fiving each other after locating free 1930’s porn on Google.

  2. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You know what’s awesome? I saw and approved this comment while at the reunion for my journalism program. I haven’t been to it since 2005, because I wasn’t “in the game” as a reporter. The only reason I went this year is because I got my column, which I never would have had the gusto to apply for if I hadn’t started my blog last year. This is definitely the best moment thus far of my blogging life!

    Thank you, Disseminator of Blogging Confidence, I am honored and cannot wait to pass this on! I like that you modified the rules to your own choosing; maybe I will too. I am most honored that you trust me with your work and respect my opinion, because your zest for blogging and journalism is a phenomenal inspiration to me. You’re unafraid to be your snarky self– on the Internet. Who does that?!! You.

    And GREAT CHOICE on also giving kudos to Ian Little and 50 Items or Less. I’m proud of that kid. Way to go, Ian!!

    • You are more than welcome. Did anyone spike the punch at the reunion?

      My snarky self? Why does everyone keep describing me as snarky?

      snarky /ˈsnɑːki/

      adjective

      1. snide and sharply critical.

      Oh, right. That’s why.

  3. I swear the “the gigolo – dumb as a bag of sex toys” search wasn’t mine, although considering where I live it’s appropriate). “Wolverine naked” would have been mine.
    Congrats on the award, u rock!

      Here’s some non-Wolverine Hugh for you.

      • hey… don’t you be messin’ with my ‘Holy Grail’ now. I already lost one to The Muppet Show, now I have to have my illusions shattered by spandex and maracas? (I know about reality, don’t mess with the fantasy) 😉

  4. Ahhh, the wonderful blog fodder that are search terms…

    Loved the creative take. Rebels in the blogging award redundancy are always a pleasure 🙂

    • Truth be told, it was more laziness and boredom of the same shit over and over again than rebellion.

  5. Thanks again for the wonderful endorsement! Everyone at 50 Items Or Less has been amazing and poured their hearts into their work. Its great to see them get noticed by outstanding members of the blogosphere such as yourself. I am honored to a be a part of what they do and to be mentioned on this fine page. And big thanks to Amee for towing the 50 Items line!

    • As I said above, I love the concept, as well as the unique challenge that writing a 50-word story presents.

  7. You deserve an award solely based on best search terms. Its always an honor to know that something like dumb as a bag of sex toys and penis burn makes someone think of you. :/
    My best search term was “Ryan Gosling’s vagina”. Not an accolade deserving winner but definitely one for the books. Congrats on your award, you well-deserving,*cough* self-proclaimed pain in the ass *cough*, you! 😉

    • I’d like to think I was smarter than your average bag of sex toys.

      Ryan Gosling’s vagina? What the fuck? How did they think that search was going to end?

  8. Congrats on your award as well! Oh god, some of those search terms…you just have to wonder what was going through their mind and/or what they were hoping to find.

    • Thank you for your contribution to the discussion, and welcome to The Dissemination of Thought. If you search for “Miss Piggy and Peter Griffin sex tape”, I’m almost certain you’ll end up back here.
