Yeah, that pun sucks. Anyway.
So I am trying to be good and do my Blogging 101 projects, in hopes of figuring out how to do this whole ‘having a blog’ thing in such a way that I’ll attract thousands of devoted followers who actually like reading my trivia-laden maunderings, but today’s assignment “Make a Prompt Personal” prompted nothing in me but feelings of rebellion at being chivvied into the sort of middle school write-what-I-tell-you-instead-of-what-you-like BS that made me think I hated writing for years. So I pissed around for ages (rather like I would have done in middle school) hitting the random button over and over until I found something I could steer back towards the stuff I write about instead. Because 1) everything is about me, I am the center of my universe, and 2) what the hell is the purpose of posting something totally outside the scope of my blog if I want a site that works as a whole? Anyhoo, without further ado and only a modicum of passive-aggressive resentment…
In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Google and Rescue Operation.”
What was the last thing you searched for online? Why were you looking for it?
Um, well, you see, um, I still have to finish the third part of my series on the television history of Wonder Woman (parts 1 and 2 here) and I was having some folks over for a stitch and bitch and we were watching real Wonder Woman (Lynda Carter, duh) and I just couldn’t handle the pain of the NBC pilot again without moral support and so I wanted everyone else to cuss the TV with me and, to make a long story short (too late!), I ended up having to spend several minutes and a number of fruitless preliminary attempts searching to find a site that still had the 2011 version available for streaming.
Everyone hated it as much as I did, which was nice. We thought what it really needed was a counter in the upper right corner that could total up each felony that Diana Themiscyra committed during the course of the episode. The worst part is that I then forgot to bookmark the site, so I’ll have to do the same thing all over again later tonight so I can take the notes I need for this week’s article. Because this is the sort of stuff I choose to blog on. And poor choices have consequences.

Very funny. I like the way you handled this prompt. It is sort of a lame prompt. IMO. http://lilypupslife.wordpress.com/

Thanks, I’m pretty sure that anything that gives me an excuse to snark eventually becomes worthwhile blog fodder.
It was a show I so looked forward to and then after the first episode, I spent days thinking. I was robbed. I cant get my time back. I cant get my time back.

Just wait until you see my full review, I was actively pissed! I plan to channel all that into massive doses of sarcasm and black humor.
