Tomorrow morning is the big day in the Thunderdome. I submitted my blog last summer/early fall and my ticket came up 2 weeks ago. My blog was thrown into the Thunderdome whilst I laid by the pool side soaking up the sun and love from my family and Keith. I really wasn’t very concerned about it, not because I thought … oh no one could beat me… but because what can I do about it? I volunteered and you don’t get to choose who you’re up against, so here we are.
As I’ve said in earlier posts I was put up against my fellow SBC member, WebKittyn. She’s got quite the reputation on the Maximum Awesome (where Blog Thunderdome takes place) boards as a very nice person, and while I’ve definately seen her very nice side, I’ve also had my fair share of just how sharp her claws can be.
Here are the unspoken rules of the Thunderdome boards:
- If you are in Blog Thunderdome there is no joking of any kind.
- Smiling, smirking, being sarcastic, happy, or anything that would make you look like you’re not a miserable human being is prohibited.
- If you do any of the above your words will be picked apart and taken out of context until you don’t even recognize what you yourself just wrote.
For example, do not say something like “comment whore” when referring to yourself in a joking manner. This will immediately be picked apart and you will then be called two-faced for being nice. When you get confused by this and try to defend yourself, those words will also be picked apart until they’re unrecognizable.
The Maximum Awesome Boards will even…
..make a *bunny cry.
Please do not take this post as me saying I don’t like WebKittyn. WebKittyn is a very nice person who I have absolutely nothing against. Her character, personality, and kind human nature were, and are not, ever something I would speak against. But the comments and the cattiness (not to mention all the mudder-feekin’ whining)… yeah, I’m ready for the verdict to be in. If I can’t blog here (because I lose) then I’ll be in I.T.J.W.T.S.

** I will not, and have not, actually cried.
