See You Next Tuesday (Ski Vacation)

See You Next Tuesday is the Boomstick's regular weekly column. Each Tuesday, I bring you the week's most laughable scumbags, idiots, and jerks for your reading and reviling pleasure. See previous editions here. 

This week's See You Next Tuesday are people who interrupt their regular blogging to make lame personal announcements.  This is to say nothing against bloggers who exclusively write personal blog diaries, because they garner a readership that enjoys and expects that content.  But when a blog devoted to another subject takes advantage of having a public platform by deviating into uninteresting, unexpected private matters, they let down their cultivated reader base and pretty much annoy the crap out of everybody.

Let me give you an example.  It's like if my Boomstick, which is usually devoted to law, politics, zombies, etc., went silent for over a week and then when I came back, I wrote an entry like this:

Hey guys, I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday!  I'm sorry for the hiatus, but I've been pretty busy.  I went skiing in Park City, Utah!  On the slopes I looked like this:

That's not really me.

But back in the cabin it looked like this. 

We had an awesome 80s Hot Tub Time Machine party, which I kind of overdid because I get really excited about costume parties and stupid excited about the 80s.  Don't believe me?

Then I went snow-mobiling with my boyfriend, but our shuttle got in a car accident on the way up the mountain.  Other passengers were freaking out, so I tried to calm them by telling them Andrew was a doctor.  In the end, everyone was okay, but they sure were mad at me when they found out he was a dentist! 

"Anybody got any loose teeth?"
The whole trip was even more amazing than I expected, because at the top of the mountain, Andrew proposed!  I was totally shocked and surprised.  But now we're engaged!

 Then we ate steak with our friends and got real drunk. 

That Indian guy in the background was so excited for us.
And that's why I haven't been blogging!

Because that post would've been gay.  If I'd seriously done that, you guys would've been like  "Alison is so annoying," and, "I used to think the Boomstick had integrity, but no longer."  And that's why this blog post is today's See You Next Tuesday.

Whew. I'm glad you didn't actually post such useless drivel on this blog. I mean, unless this "Andrew" fellow were actually a dinosaur archaeologist and you were a zombie engineer and this engagement would surely result in a couple hellbent on ruling the world by commanding its army of zombie dinosaurs, then it would be worthy of this stage. Until that happens, we thank you for continuing to steer clear of such girly, sappy posts.

You're hilarious! Only you would somehow find a way to blog about something personal while still getting witty humor out of it. ...and now I feel silly about my diary blog ;) CONGRATS!!!

Lamest sweeps-week stunt ever.

I'm so glad I don't have to worry about coming to your blog to read about your personal life. You are the best blogger ever! I hope you and Andrew run into many zombies throughout your wedding planning, so you can have other non-personal experiences to write about.

So so happy for you :)

That's so gay it makes me want to support the fight in favor of gay marriage more than ever, so you two can get gay-married.
