This way you see, I will no longer be held hostage to your oppressive schedule. For cripe's sake people, don't you know I have a JOB?
Anyway. On to my new RBOWIFLPI: The Official Site of Grant Miller. I stumbled across Mr. Miller, Esq., because we are both friends of and semi-regular commentators on The Company Bitch.
Miller is a stay-at-home dad and is bitter about the journalistic success of his friend, Markos Moulitsas, as described in his March archives. Mr. Miller acknowledges that he is just too lazy to be as driven as Markos, which I both understand and respect. Nonetheless, Miller is clearly growing more desperate for attention and has even promised a free pony to the first 50,000 of his fans who link to him.
Miller has several recurring series that I appreciate, such as his "Meaningless Encounters with Celebrities" along with random stories he describes as the "Worst Things that Have Ever Happened to [Him]" (e.g. his cat catching a mouse - is he a girly man or what?)
But my favorite thing that has ever happened to Mr. Miller is that someone got the idea to start an Unofficial Site of Grant Miller blog that the author uses to taunt and mock Mr. Miller. For example, to counter Miller's "Meaningless Encounter" series, the Unofficial Site boasts its own "Meaningful Encounter with Celebrities" series, claiming that on the Unofficial Site, EVERY encounter with a person has meaning, unlike in the shallow world of Grant Miller.
For all we know, Miller could possibly himself be the second author, as if to play an "ignore that man behind the curtain" joke on us. If discovered, I will consider this an unforgivable offense against his loyal reader(s) which could make another Stephen Glass out of Miller. Then he'll REALLY have nothing to do but wipe snotty noses the rest of his career. (I'm just bitter that I'm not home doing the same.)
But I will hope for the best and assume that the Unofficial Site is bona fide.
Anyhow, enjoy Miller's blog. If he lifts the restraining order he put up on me for cyberstalking him, maybe I'll give him a permalink one of these days. Because we all know that, like Rachael Ray, Grant Miller would be friends with Mindy June & me if he weren't famous & all.
Grant Miller, Esq.
