When did I get OCD??

I'm a comment whore, and I freely admit it. I'll suck and blow for a dozen comments or so. Boom-chicka-boom-bicka-wau-wau (porn music).

Ever since I installed the damn counter I've become a slave to the numbers. For a good run there I was averaging 60-70 visitors a day, and now I'm down to 50-some-odd. Now, this shouldn't be a problem, but I find myself feeling nauseous and looking for a paper bag to hyperventilate in (maybe that's a little bit of a stretch) because my numbers ARE GOING DOWN like a nympho on the Titanic. There's some sort of wonderfully addictive satisfaction in knowing that people are stopping by...whether they stay for a piece of snark or not. Alas, I fear I've become too much of a number whore, though. Thinking of stopping by my blog? If you need some incentive I'll discount you some crank and tweak your crumpets.

It's not healthy. Maybe I should uninstall the counter. I'm beginning to judge my entries by the number of visitors here. I'm judging myself by the entries I post. Why don't as many people love me today?? This week? Where are the readers???? WHY aren't they coming!!! STOP THE MADNESS!!!!

*downward spiral*

...taking a bow.....

  1. lol I'm the same way with my counter & comments, but they're not as high as yours, so you should feel good!

    Funny story: I recently had a dream with you and Dena in it. You guys were staying w/ me for some reason, and there were white boards all over the house. I kept writing on them, and you guys would read them. I think that was my dream version of my blog, LOL

  2. So--I so want to be seeing those dreams! Hate to admit that I haven't had those ones yet....

    Andi--I've been busy all week. That's why your numbers are down. I'll be back early next week (if my DSL problems are taken care of by then). Have a good weekend!

  3. that's why i don't have a counter, it would just make me paranoid and worried. it's the same reason i couldn't bring myself to do online dating...

    the important people still love you honey! kisses.

    p.s. did you ever get that librarian action figure? apparently they're selling them at our crappy library conference next week...

  4. Andi-

    Wow. If you are concerned with comments, I'm absolutely terrified with comments. I think the highest I've ever gotten were seven, and I have long-ass posts!

  5. Yah, I think you're doing pretty darn well w/the comments. The only post anybody ever commented on for my blog is the one about Andy's hair... I also haven't been around... Filling out an app, studying for a test, looking for an over priced condo... 150k for a one bedrm... I hate this town... It's not my kind of town...

  6. LOL, it's not so much the comments, everyone....more the number of visitors since I got the counter. Os is probably right...they're down because he's not here constantly. *smooches to Os*

    Not trying to be a brat...I'm thankful for my comments, just wanted to point out what a silly obsession it can become.! Eek!

  7. April, I love that dream! That's hilarious, and I'm also a white board whore, so it was completely appropriate. Maybe I'll try that next semester...leave random messages on white boards around campus. lol I think that could become a phenomenon. Weird dream! Love it!

  8. Eeeww, DSL problems. My computer was acting funky yesterday...I just don't have the energy for puter problems right now. I get insanely bothered by them and start throwing things.

  9. LOL, Ago. Yeah, the online dating thing would drive me crazy, too. I posted a profile on one several years ago, and I only left it up for a few days because I could tell I was going to drive myself crazy.

    Haven't gotten the librarian action figure yet. But I'm gonna! Oh, and I'm gonna read her book(s) sometime soon, too. My first interlibrary loan experience!

  10. You do have great posts, Tim. I hate that my new job is taking time from my already far advanced blog addiction (meaning reading others blogs). I could check some at work, but I'm kinda afraid to. I'd have to stop writing about the morons that come in, and I'm not willing to do that. hehe

  11. Application for what, Cher, and condos are wayyyy expensive....even in Dallas. I have a hard time with the idea of paying 150 thou. for something that is still, basically, an apartment. I'll probably end up in one myself since I feel that way. Good luck house/condo hunting, and come back to TX sooooon! lol

  12. Andi, as Stephen King would say, you're crazier than a rat in a tin shithouse. But then so am I: I can't stop checking up on my counter.


    Luh-hoo-zuh-herrrrr.

  14. Andi, I haven't been on for a few days either so, there are at least 6 for you...a day!!! My life is so mundane. My puter is trying to crash on us, so maybe Tuesday when Dave is off will be new puter day!!!

  15. By the way... I visit your site several times a day. When I'm bored and grumpy at work is a great time. Andi, your the only person who leaves comments on my blog -- if you get hit by a bus I'm totally screwed!!!

  20. Sojourness, that's a strange dream. I had one where some bloggers and book friends were writing on MY walls. But they were just dark walls, the house was dark and there were leaks running down the paint.

    Did I write anything interesting?

    xo

  21. You guys didn't write anything, only I did. Maybe Dream Me has a big head.
