The Fortress of Ineptitude

Hi there! Welcome to I'm So Glad My Suffering Amuses You, the blog that is more fun than a basket full of kittens! 



















Oh hell to the no WAY this blog is more fun than that! 

THOSE KITTENS ARE TOO CUUUUUUUUTE!  

Squeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

TOO CUTE! 
TOO CUTE! 
TOO CUTE! 
TOO CUTE! 
TOO CUTE! 
TOO-














Sorry about that. 

I am your humble blogger, Dave-El. Actually, my name is David Long but Dave-El is my Kryptonian name which is just too damn nerdy for words, isn't it? Dave-El is also my nom de blog which is French for "Yum! Blog!" 

Since I've got that whole Superman-esque stuff going on with the Dave-El name thing, I occasionally adapt other Superman mythology for my use here on this blog thing. For example, instead of a Fortress of Solitude, I refer to my abode as the Fortress of Ineptitude.  

In case you're wondering what the Fortress of Ineptitude looks like...


























You're welcome. 

I call my home the Fortress of Ineptitude mostly as an honest assessment of my abilities (or lack thereof) as a homeowner. My approach to solving problems around my Fortress can be best expressed by the following comments I have been known to use.   

"This is a job for duct tape!"
"Flat head or Phillips screwdriver? Fuck it! I have a hammer!"
"That door is supposed to stick like that." 
"Where the hell is the duct tape?" 
"That hole in the wall? It was there when we moved in. You're just now noticing that?" 
"I can fix the toilet. I just need to connect the thingamabob to the whoziwatzit with a whatchamacallit."  
"No worries! The smoke coming out is perfectly normal." 
"No duct tape? We're doomed!" 

I'm really the last person on Earth who should be a homeowner unless I had a billion dollars and a really good butler. 

I wish I had a butler. 

Sigh. 



OK, feeling a bit depressed again. Must engage emergency protocols.













KITTENS! CUTE KITTENS!! SUPER DUPER MEGA CUTE KITTENS! THESE KITTENS ARE CUUUUUUUUUTE!!

Fine, stand down red alert. 

And I think that is enough for this silly post for today. I'll be back with another post tomorrow. In the meantime, remember to be good to one another.

Amendment to post: Friday saw the announcement of Steven Moffat's departure as Doctor Who writer and producer along with other announcements regarding the show's future. I will address that further in tomorrow's post.
