First Annual International Hijack™ Day

Sunday, January 27, 2008
The First Annual International Hijack™ Day has arrived! This is a concept invented by my fellow blogger Nathan over at Polybloggimous, and we here at Hot Chicks Dig Smart Men have decided to participate. Because, really, you can never have too much silliness in your life. Plus we like Entropy. We likes it, Precious. Although we do note that the blogosphere is not a closed system.

Here are the rules for the First Annual International Hijack™ Day:
  • Do not respond to my post in my own thread. Go to one of the other participant's blogs and respond there.
  • Do not respond to other participants in their own threads. Go to one of the other participant's blogs and respond there.If you're responding to a comment in a thread, do it somewhere else.
  • If one of the participants has failed to put up a Hijack™ Day post, Hijack their most recent thread with your non-sequiter comments. Serves 'em right, I say.
  • Creative flaming and name-calling are hereby deemed most welcome during the 24-hour playing period.
  • If you want to paticipate and your blog is not on this list, contact the participants via comments with a link to your blog, and we'll modify our entries to include you.
  • On-topic responses in the same thread will be met with the Shovel of Doom™

The players, in no particular order:

Now that the logistics are established, here is my contribution to the chaos:

Which of the presidential candidates is the biggest Freeze-Dried Whack-a-Loon, and why? Remember, creativity will be rewarded, and lame-o contributions will be flamed.

My favorite guilty pleasure blog, one I've visited for years, is Go Fug Yourself. It's totally useless, and wonderfully snarky.

Flaming food is the best

OK Jim, I'll give it a try.

"Oatmeal, you're so fucking stupid you could lose a debate with a soap dish. Your mother has hairy feet. Why don't you just keep you inane comments to yourself?"

How was that?

I have to disagree with you MWT,

I think Keanu Reeves was perfect in The Matrix. In fact, I avoided seeing "The Matrix" for years because of him, then I finally watched it and was completely blown away.

Of course I was blown away by the entire movie, but I thought he was perfect.

Johnny Virgil's 15minute lunch. He's they guy who did the JC Penny post, if you got that email.

MWT said...

I like oatmeal because it's extremely simple to make. Three minutes with water in the microwave and voila! Then I usually add salt and maple syrup to it.

But I do like well-prepared grits too. Tastes good with some salt and cheese. I just never make it at home.

Nathan said...

Sure, bring on the Canadians!

MWT said...

I do like Blues music more than Jazz. It has a darker, warmer tone that speaks to me more (which isn't saying much because jazz does nothing for me). But I haven't really gone out of my way to explore blues music either - Eric Clapton is as close as I've ever really gotten.

Michelle K said...

Unless you're taking to his mom, who thinks he's so bright she calls him son, Nathan is definitely miscast in that part.

Michelle K said...

Almost anyone is a better speller/typist than I am.

So I don't think you get points for that.

And if you're going to be THAT way, then I'll just take BACK my bonus points!

Jim Wright said...

This is turning out a whole lot a conversation with my folks, who mostly just talk past each other and switch subjects faster than John McCain changes his opinion on Waterboarding. :)

Nathan said...

MWT,

Tell Bhako (sorry if I got that wrong), he/she's totally welcome to post stuff here in the spirit of the game without inviting us to pollute his/her site.

There's a tie between Michelle K and Jeri over at Anne's Publick Storage. Both of them said the same thing at exactly the same time! W00t!

Jeri said...

I think Spike would be a great name for a pet - but are you sure you really want to keep one of those in the house?

MWT said...

He could've been talking about the pink elephant, or the pink rhinoceri, or some other pink critter...

Tania said...

Michelle, I'm fairly content with my T60. I went with it because my ex-IT guys recommended it, and I got a 30% discount on it through work. If I didn't need to be able to tie into the work network, I would have went with a Mac, or let my friends walk me through an Ubuntu installation.

But, hardware-wise, I've had it for just over a year, and I'm pretty happy with it. Big enough for my needs, small enough for me to but in my bag and hit the road.

Anne C. said...

Does having a post from Jim or Tania count towards the International part, since they're in Alaska? ;)

Kate said...

Whatever, if you guys actually cared about purple people eaters, you would have been campaigning for their safety in Morocco.

Frankly, it disgusts me. You are all just rice eating, litigious and lazy people who only believe in saving 'real' things.

I for one will be out there in the sun trying to help that poor one eyed, one horned, flying bastard.

Tom said...

"Man in Black" ???

Could it be that Michelle is a secret fan of the Atlanta Falcons or the defunct Houston Oilers? If it was the old Oilers, I'm with you 100%. Has there been a Glanville sighting?

I'm sorry, Michelle. Elvis has left the building.

Michelle K said...

Nathan, I'm beginning to worry about you.

You've never blown a raspberry at someone? What a sad childhood you must have had.

pppfffttt!

Chalk Polo

Polo. I'm so drunk I couldn't walk a chalk line.

Johnny. (helps Polo to chair left) Hold on. Let's see if we can get over to that chair.

Anne, thank you for the virtual cookies!

Jim Wright said...

Posting from Croatia over on Stonekettle Station, I think that's the distance mark so far, but I wouldn't swear to it.

And Nathan? Cottage cheese made from the stomach bacteria siphoned out of a cosmonaut's stomach - yeah, thanks for that, pal. May your porch be buried in fuzzy pink teddy bears and Mary Kate Olsen dolls (they're real skinny, like straws with one end dipped in scary eye liner)

Nathan said...

Bakho checked in from Croatia on Jim's place.

We're international!

Anne C. said...

I have to admit to being a bit worried about Shawn. It's not like him to be quiet like this.
I miss Shawn. :(

Michelle K said...

Nathan,

I thought we'd all agreed as of last night that my spelling was nothing if not suspect.

Second, poo on you, I'll spell ppfffttt anyway I want.

So there!

Anne C. said...

Shawn has posted that he is *gasp* working. Something bad happened to his computers and he's fixing it for them. Apparently Shawn is the responsible one in this mob.

I like the blues. They are tropical punch flavor. I don't think it has anything to do with gender or race.

Orange, however, tastes like tropical puke.
