In case you don’t read squirrelers (and you should), and were wondering how we came about, here’s excerpts from the transcript of our birth.
I feel grumpy and irritable
I have so much crap to do
Maggie: hahahahaha I was reading GRS comments without looking at the names– and I saw one and thought, “That really sounds like nicole! I wonder if she wrote it?” and I scrolled up and you did. Haha.
Nicole: I’m a grumpy gus
a negative nelly
Maggie: oh dear. Now I just got angry and posted a tart comment on someone’s blog.
Everyone has a blog. My adviser’s son has a blog about cooking.
I didn’t know you posted to blogs
which one which one?
I don’t have a blog
Maggie: we should start a blog called nicole & maggie
it can be totally grumpy
but you know
that would like take time and effort
Maggie: I even know how to make blogs now, thanks to a project…
Nicole: bah to effort
can you monetize them?
‘cuz I do like money
we can have it be the grumpy rumblings of the untenured
“Grumpy rumblings by Maggie and Nicole”
Maggie: I’m not sure about monetizing; but how hard can it be?
Nicole: we can complain about other people being stupid
people will have flame wars in our comments sections and totally dis us
but so long as there’s money…
I think the title of the blog should be “Nicole & Maggie” and the tag line should be “Grumpy rumblings of the untenured”
I can complain about people who complain about things and don’t do anything to fix them
Maggie: I can complain about EVERYTHING
we can of course have an extensive blogroll on the side
Nicole: and I can complain about mothers who think that anybody who does anything different than they did is destroying their child
and oh, the complaints about students
Nicole: and heat
And thus our little blog was born.
How was your blog born, if you have one?
