I’m sorry I haven’t been posting this month. As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve had some career-related issues. I have a huge backlog of short story and novel reviews I’d like to write, so hopefully I can hit the keyboard again soon. I’ve also been failing in another of my duties as Planetary Defense Commader: monitoring highly suspicious blogs. I’m asking you, my faithful readers, to monitor them for me.
The first suspicious blog is the Rocky Mountain Navy. You’d expect the Rocky Mountain Navy to focus on defending maritime trade through the Rocky Mountains or preventing amphibious invasion of mountain states, but the organization seems to focus on boardgames and roleplaying games. Highly suspicious.
The second suspicious blog is the Captain’s Quarters. Sure, in her book reviews, the captain talks the talk of a pirate, but does she walk the walk? I searched the news reports, and not a single Spanish galleon has been attacked by pirates this year. Highly suspicious.
Finally, there’s a blog whose name alone is suspicious: Cupcakes and Machetes. Visuals only increase the suspiciousness:
There is an urban legend which states that if you go into a public restroom, stare into the mirror, and repeat the phrase “cupcakes and machetes” over and over, you will receive a visit from a police officer. I haven’t tried this to verify.
Until I get back up to speed, I’ll need you to keep an eye on these highly suspicious blogs for me. Thanks.
