Blogging drinking games

I never drink anything harder than a good stout Dr. Pepper, but if I did, I think these games could be pretty fun:

Every time a blogger announces that 'Strumpette is disgusting, and this is clearly a ploy to simply boost her traffic!', and then links to her, take a drink.

Every time you see a blogger mention that a certain blogger/company 'gets it', and you realize that the blogger has no idea what 'getting it' means, take a drink.

Every time you see a blogger with over 500 links say 'It's like I keep saying, markets really are conversations', and some pipsqueak with 5 links immediately pipes in with 'Great post, and great blog, I'm linking to both of them!', take a drink.

Every time Heather Armstrong posts about a subject that you don't give a rat's ass about, yet you find yourself being pulled closer and closer to the monitor as if were a magnet, as she discusses yard-selling while constipated, take a drink.

Every time you wonder if the reason why you aren't blissfully happy, is because you never read Scoble like everyone else does, take a drink.

Every time you can't finish your blogging drinking post on time because you keep reloading SiteMeter to see if you have gone up from 3 to 4 visitors today, take a drink.

A couple of thoughts:
(1) I want to be recognized for not linking to the tartlet, although I certainly spent enough time commenting on it.
(2) Where is your pic? Ken’s still available, if you need him.
(3) Where is your RSS button?
(4) When are you going to stop drinking?

Andrea I haven't been looking, but I've noticed that almost everyone is linking to her, in fact you are the only blog I have seen that has mentioned her, and hasn't linked to her.

As for the site, I am going to post the link here from BMA on Friday, so my goal is to have everything more or less done here by Thursday night. The title is definitely going to get scrapped, and the template might, not sure.

And I don't drink, although many have suggested that I should start. ;)

I'm looking forward to the official unveiling.

So if your stuff on BMA is just going to be a repost of stuff on here, give me one good reason to keep going to BMA!

By the way, I'm pretty sure if I played this drinking game, I'd die of alcohol poisoning!

Oh, and knapsack has a K on the front of it!

JD most of the stuff will be cross-posted this week, but after that not so much. I've still got 2 more pieces for Nettwerk that I am working on, both of those will go on BMA. Actually yesterday was BMA's best day ever, traffic wise. Once the new guys get into the swing of it, I think BMA will really take off.

And I couldn't tell if it was napsack or knapsack....I searched for both with Google and got many more results for napsack, so I went with it. Either way it doesn't matter, cause I'm going to change it lol
