Sue's Blog Book

Have you heard about the book and contest that Sue is coordinating as a fund raiser for Nie Nie?
I haven't decided whether to submit something or not. Not that I don't support the cause or the book, which I completely DO.
It's just that I have a hard time being funny on cue. And I don't really think of myself as a funny blogger. More like "somewhat amusing". Occasionally.

Anyway, I'm not sure I can go head to head with the funniest bloggers out there.

But I wanted to let you know about the contest, in case YOU want to try to get something in there. I know plenty of my readers who are QUITE funny, thank-you very much, and have already written any number of posts that could easily make it into such a collection.

And then we can all sit back and know in our hearts that we knew you BEFORE.

I have the same problem. Such a dilemma.

Jill said...

I would like to submit something, but I can't decide on a post to send in.
Actually, I can't make up my mind about anything. It's really quite sad.

I'm not submitting because I'm not funny. I know Sue said that was no excuse - that she would be the judge. But it is SO an excuse.

Yvonne said...

You must submit something--you are so great.

I think it sounds like such a wonderful thing. Good for sue to organize it.

Maraiya said...

Yeah, when your BFF says that you funny queer and not funny ha ha, I think that means you shouldn't submit something for the book. People would read, laugh hysterically and then read mine and start crying. I don't want to be the one downer in an otherwise humorous work.

Oh, and I thought your camping story was hilarious. Submit that.

The Motherboard said...

I think your funny. And not queer funny but wipe those tears, chortle chortle snort funny!

Question: how did you get your imaginary friends box to do that nifty scroll thing?? That's slick!

Sue said...

SUBMIT! SUBMIT!

Thanks for telling people about it, and I really hope you do submit something. You've had a lot of funny posts. :>

I'll have to check out the book. Even if I'm not funny enough to be included - I would probably buy it!

Thanks for dropping by my blog (I'm guessing via Kacy?) I keep having to check the comments on that old post since she linked to it. I actually appreciate each and every comment I get and always visit the people who took time to visit me.

And I love your new word "bizzarity" - I'm totally using it. And I'll give you full credit of course!

Corrine said...

oh you totally should submit something...

Heather said...

You ARE funny.

Lauren said...

I dunno if I could come up with something funny enough. I would be too scared!

You totally should submit. You are one of the funniest bloggers on the block. Yo!

Melissa Bastow said...

You should do it - you're funnier than me, and I submitted something. So maybe if you don't submit anything that will make mine look more amusing because you're not there to show me up....hmmmm....

JustRandi said...

Awww - thanks to everyone for submitting to what appears to be a shameless ploy for compliments.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled reality.

(really, though, thanks!)

Heather of the EO said...

Yes, I agree with all these lovely comments. Your funniness should be in a book.

And I SO relate to the "being funny on cue" thing. I would totally stink at improv. I'd be all,
um, um (giggle) um... YEAH, um...

beckers said...

OMGosh!! Am I allowed to copy/paste something from your archives and submit it for you??

Do it, girlfriend!!!

somebodysmom said...

Randi girl you are so very funny submit. Stop thinking about it and submit. Now!

Melissa said...

I'll so it if you will... I'm not sure what I would submit, but I'm sure I could find something mildly amusing... perhaps my post about the brand of clothing in the "old ladies" section at Kohls called "Sag". Yeah... I don't need a daily reminder in the form of brand labels that remind me that my body is a little droopy in places thankyouverymuch!

Tori :) said...

Hmmm... I'll have to check it out.

Kimberly said...

I keep trying but oi! You're right...the funny doesn't always come on cue - argh!
