Official Silliness Updates

November 10, 2007

I’m sorry to have kept you waiting, but I’m afraid my blog has become rather sillier recently, and so it takes me rather longer to get to work.¹

Many thanks to those of you who have left Comments, Emailed, Applied for Positions, and/or Submitted Silly Links for the Ministry of Silly Blogs. I feel extraordinarily Humbled to be a Part of such a Silly Group. Also Extraordinarily Silly. Another Post of Officially Silly Links will be Posted posthaste. Or at least relatively soonish.

We at the Ministry of Silly Blogs would like to encourage all Staff Members of the Ministry of Silly Blogs to submit posts of their own Silliness, in order to properly Highlight the Extreme Silliness of our Group Members, and thus of our Group. We would like to regularly post a List of Silly Posts of the Past Week or So. Additionally, we welcome Archival Posts of Silliness.

The Official Ministry of Silly Blogs NaBloPoMo group now boasts 48 Silly Members. And We at the Ministry do indeed like to Boast, especially where Silliness is Concerned.

We are pleased to report that 5 More Official Ministry Positions have been filled and/or created by Ministry Staff Members. Please welcome to our Ranks the following:

Secretary of Defense Against Squirrels: Ashley of If You Can’t Do Something Smart…

Chief Mistress of Leprechauns, Oompa Loompas, and Hobbits: Rach of Rachelskirts

Director General of Generally Indirect Silliness: Nerevised of kiwi countdown

Adjutant for Silliness Education, Indoctrination, and the Letter P: Bee of welikeplay

Chief of Staff: Anitra of I Love a Kiwi

In addition, 18 Official Positions had been filled at the time of our Last Official Update. Thus, there are now 23 Official Ministry Positions filled from among the 48 total group member. If my Arithmetic is Correct, this means that there are approximately 327 more members currently eligible for Official Ministry Job Titles. If you are among the Untitled Individuals, you may want to consider choosing a title from the list below, or creating your own title from the Mysterious Workings of your own Silly Mind. (For details on how to apply for a position, please refer to the previous Staffing Update.)

The Following Positions are still Accepting Applicants, including some Newly Added Silly Positions:

¹ Actually, it’s not so much the Silliness, as the Quantity. I have added an Intimidating Large Number of Blogs to my feed reader for NaBloPoMo. And what’s worse, these are blogs that are showing new posts Every Single Damn Day. Sometimes even more than one post. Curse you, Prolific Bloggers! Seriously, if any of you want to join in as an Official Co-author, that would be Swell.

  3. Dear Sir/Madam/BadgerBuggerer:

    I wish to submit my application for the post of Secretary General of the Department of Nomadic Housing and Landscape Design. I have extensive experience in such a field. I am deeply concerned that Everybody Hates Nomads, and therefore they have been denied the water fountains and topiary that they deserve. If appointed, I would invite everyone over to my tent for coffee, cucumber sandwhiches and pencil sharpening contests.

    With respects and a pound of liver,
