User avatarGratuitous self-promotion

I wrote a thing for a blog site that gets even more people visiting and posting comments than The Beans, if you can believe such a thing.

You can read it by clicking on these words, or these words, or this letter Q, but not these words, or this asterisk: *

This post is not just blatantly self-promoting and aggrandizing, but also rather lazily adding to my Bean Count for this month on a day where I clearly couldn’t think of anything better to post.

Now go! Go and bask in my reflected glory! Go and revel in the euphoria and majesty that is me!

    There’s a lot of words in that. I almost thought I saw the word “ming” but I was mistaken and therefore disappointed.

  • The main thing for me is that you saw how many words were in it. That’s the main thing.

    The official count has to be lots because that’s what I’ve decided. There’s no other way of working it out. None at all.

  • I think you’re right. I’ll record this in a spreadsheet. I’m not sure which one.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    Make it a loosh one. There’s nothing I like more than a loosh spreadsheet.

  • Do you mean louche?

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    I don’t know, do I?

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    I’m happy to go with the majority. Does anyone else have any input?

  • No. Nobody else has any input.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    I’m very surprised and a little disappointed. I was hoping someone else might have come forward. I’m clearly not as popular as I thought I was.

    Can I have a louche spreadsheet then?

  • Yes. I’ll have it couriered over.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    Have one printed on special paper, and if you can make it a pop up version. I like pop up spreadsheets. In short, WOW me.

  • It’s going to have tassles and everything. Just you wait.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    You should know that should I not be wowed there’s a strong chance you’ll be shoved in the character hatch.

    It’s too late. It’s been too long. I had to say something…

  • How DARE you threaten me with the Character Hatch (TM)? That place is for unwanted fictional creations whereas I, on the other hand, am horrifyingly and disappointingly real. That Hatch is not to be opened, not ever.

  • Ian "Mac Mac Mac Mac" McIver

    In the words of Will Smith, “Watch out before you get bum rushed by the Character Hatch (TM)”.

  • That was a great song. Trust Big Willie Style to make a whole movie about the Character Hatch™.

    I didn’t quite understand the significance of the giant mechanical spiders but artistic licence and all that.
