Hot Topics

We bloggers don’t appreciate how hard it is for WordPress to keep coming up with topic suggestions, but the cracks are beginning to show. Twice they’ve asked whether we think everything happens for a reason. They’ve asked about us having an hour to live, 20 minutes to live and forever to live. A couple of days ago they asked which drugs we preferred (sort of) and of course they have had the much maligned “dead puppies” suggestion.

By December they will be really struggling. I have obtained a list of their planned topics for that month:

  
1st. If you were a cat, what kind of cat-food would you eat?
2nd. Describe the socks you’re wearing right now.
3rd. Weekly Photo Challenge: Despair.
4th. Was Little Jimmy Osmond crap or what?
5th. Which of your legs is your favourite?
6th. Humor or humour? Does your blog have either?
7th. Describe a jigsaw puzzle you once made.
8th. Ear lobes. Why?
9th. Will this year ever be over?
10th. Weekly Photo Challenge: Women’s Bums (bonus: if you don’t get slapped).
11th. Bloggers are gobshites who can’t think up their own topics. Discuss loudly, after twelve cans of beer.
12th. Do you like the smell of tarmac on a hot day?
13th. Why did the fourth little piggy get no roast beef?
14th. Do you think it’s easy making up 365 topics? Well, do you?
15th. Describe your most recent haircut.
16th. Write about Pirates of the Caribbean 4 without using the words “utter” or “crap”.
17th. Weekly Photo Challenge: Hold your thumb over the lens.
18th. Were you popular at school? Why not?
19th. How big is Uruguay?
20th. Not worth a hill of beans. What does that actually mean?
21st. No-one reads what you write. You know that, don’t you?
22nd. Write about the back of your head.
23rd. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. How do you get them out?
24th. Weekly Photo Challenge: Santa (no, the real one).
25th. Oh, give me a break, you’re not seriously all here today too?
26th. Write about the worst present you got yesterday (bonus: name and write nasty things about the present-giver).
27th. Describe your left thumb.
28th. How many Star Wars movies can you name? (bonus: what does that tell you about yourself)?
29th. Just what was so wrong with the post about the dead puppies?
30th. Are you counting down the seconds to New Year as eagerly as I am? 
31st. Do you think we’re going to have a Postaday 2012? Are you mad?

    After some of the suggestions I’ve seen, I wouldn’t be surprised if they saw your list and thought, “What fantastic ideas!”

    It’s 9.30 in the evening here and they still haven’t made today’s suggestion. This is the latest they’ve ever been, I think I may have crushed their soul.

    And welcome to our happy band, Angie~Lah (took me ages to find that middle bit on the keyboard).

    Sitting in the airport lounge getting as much free stuff in that I can (okay, I know it’s not really free), after ’25th. Oh, give me a break, you’re not seriously all here today too?’, I laughed out loud and got looked at strangely by men in suits.

    I am really in my own little world. WordPress has daily post topic ideas? I had no idea.

    As December 5th is my birthday, I’ll have to examine that topic.

    5th. Which of your legs is your favourite?

    Well, I’m pretty partial to both, being fond of self perambulation and all. However, the varicose veins are marginally less hideous in my right. So if I had to choose which leg had to go, say on pain of death, I’d choose based purely on vanity and say, “I love my right leg more. Take the left!”
