Me: Why don't I have minions?Asking you all to name yourselves feels like making assumptions about exactly how interested is this blog's following, but being humble is in direct contravention of my New Year's resolution. Humility: out. Overweening hubris: in.
Sarah Laurenson: Ah, but you have slavishly devoted followers. You just need a name for them. Miss Snark had Snarklings. Evil Editor has Minions. Does Moonrat have Moonies? I think you need a 'name the followers' post.
Colorado Writer: You have followers. Devoted ones.
Me: Yes, and I like their free-thinking selves just the way they are. But couldn't I have some minions, too, to do my bidding and some odd grovelling? Can you rent minions?
Sarah Laurenson: Odd grovelling? I think that can be arranged. Especially if you rent a few minions to do it.
Dana P: Sorry, EA, you can't have minions, because you're not evil. (A bit naughty, maybe, but that's not enough...)
Me: Harumph! New Year's resolution: be more eeeevil.
So go on, name the readers of this blog. No need for slavishness, but humor is a plus. I'll put together a poll so everyone can vote. Hmm. Is allowing voting not eeevil enough?
I'd better do something bad to make up for it. I'll go torture my cat by holding her food dish over her head.
