While away on my interview, my blog had its 5,000th visitor. For many bloggers, I know that is small potatoes. For me, though, I feel like frickin’ Edward R. Murrow if even two readers visit my blog.
As a thanks to all who have stopped by my little bloggy, I devised a drinking game for the Center of Gravitas. Not that you need to drink to read my blog, but, hey, it doesn’t hurt.
Don’t drink liquor? No problem! This game works with pills as well.
So, bring out the Patrón Tequila and take a meander through the archives to see how often the following occur:
- Take one drink for every Golden Age Wonder Woman Cover.
Take two drinks for every Bronze Age Wonder Woman Cover.
Take a drink if you know the difference between Golden and Bronze Age Wonder Woman (You big Geek, I love you).
Take one drink for every time GayProf uses the word “dubious.”
Take one drink for every time GayProf refers to himself in the third person.
Take two drinks for every time GayProf refers to himself as a minor deity.
Take one drink for every mention of Anderson Cooper.
Take two drinks for every mention of Anderson Cooper being in the closet.
Take three drinks for every mention of Cydney Bernard.
Take four drinks for every mention of racism, sexism, or homophobia on GayProf’s campus (For this one, the number of drinks is merely to dull the pain, not an indication of infrequent mentions in the blog).
Take two drinks every time GayProf threatens to wear Star-Spangled panties.
Take one drink if you just conjured an image of GayProf wearing Star-Spangled panties. You deserve it.
Take one drink every time GayProf whines about Futurama's cancellation.
Take two drinks if you miss Futurama (You big Geek, I really, really love you).
Take three drinks for every entry with zero comments (because that just makes me sad).
Take one drink for every television reference.
Take two drinks for every time that GayProf admits to watching a t.v. show simply because some hunky male actor happens to star in it.
Take five drinks for every arcane historical reference.
Take four drinks for every time GayProf mentions the tenure process. Take an extra drink on GayProf’s behalf.
Take two drinks for every time GayProf promises to “be more positive” on his blog.
Take one drink for every time that a negative post follows a promise to be more positive.
Take one drink for every mention of the evils of Texas.
Take two drinks for every time GayProf notes that he is blogging instead of working and/or grading.
Take a drink if you don’t yet have alcohol poisoning.
SUPER BONUS ROUND: Fragments of obscure song lyrics hide within many of my blog entries. Take the whole bottle if you can find them.
