Welcome to Secret Spineless Whine!

Do you have a secret that you want to tell the world anonymously? Then go to the excellent Post Secret or Secret Tweet. We don’t need your kind here.

But if you have a spineless whine, well, make yourself at home!
What is a spineless whine? It’s a minor complaint that doesn’t quite reach the level of a secret and yet you suspect that if you shared it with your friends or colleagues, they would be annoyed. That’s where we come in.

Email your spineless whine to secretspineless.whine@blogger.com, anonymously or not, and it will post directly to Secret Spineless Whine. We will tweet some entries and mock others. Sometimes we will tweet and mock the very same entries. Which will give you more stuff to whine about.

Here are some questions that you may have, answered:

Q: I think I understand, and this is a brilliant idea, but how I can tell if what I have is more of a secret or a whine?
A: “I killed my aunt” is secretish.
“Brangelina are really annoying” is whinerish. Although I salute the sentiment.

Q: Why can’t I just whine to my friends, family, co-workers instead of posting here?
A: You can. But give them a link to this blog, in case, you know, they want to say something about you.

Q: Isn’t listening to people’s whines annoying?
A: Yes.

Q: Are you just making up these questions and then answering them?
A: Shouldn’t you know the answer to that one?

Any other questions?

We are still tinkering with this concept, so if you have any ideas/suggestions, please post them or email us at SecretSpineless@aol.com.

And then send in your whine to secretspineless.whine@blogger.com. We’ll provide the cheese.

I'm afraid I may never stop, but since you asked:

What the FUCK is all the fuss about Oprah????

Rachel said...

You guys must have a lot of time on your hands, but I am nothing if not a born complainer, so count me in.

Marinka said...

Yay, I'm on top! Where I belong.

And Braja and Rachel? You need to review the directions about this blog. We will be holding a remedial session over the weekend.

I'm sure there's a more elegant way to keep this up top besides losing an entire year of our life. On the bright side, now that it's 2010, maybe the recession is over and I've finally gotten Eli to give up his pacifiers.

MommyTime said...

This is a brilliant idea. I can't wait to give my whiney ranting self full and open field to roam. First, however, I have to get ready to teach a class this afternoon. But you can be sure after that I'll be sending an excellent whine about something (snow, students, lack of good coffee, who knows?!)

P.S. It's not that I don't get the directions. Just that I don't have a whine to send yet but wanted to say I like the blog idea. And now this rambling is turning into something eminently mockable. Whatever. I'm wearing my big girl panties today.

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

Excellent idea and I have been looking for a place to whine about my job....

Deb said...

Yay!!! Now I can whine without abandon. Because, of course, I never whine in real life.

K.Line said...

I LOVE this. Wait, that's kind of cheerful. Not meaning to bring down the tone.

cw2smom said...

I decided to blog about this very excellent idea of yours and whine about the fact that I am pissed that I didn't think of this first! I see a book deal..a'la Post Secret in the works, talk show appearances, and MILLIONS to be made! Waaaaaaaaa! I am sooooo envious!!! :P That's me, sticking my tongue out at you two!! LMAO!! Lisa

cw2smom said...

Oh...and shouldn't there be like a badge of whining honor for us "founding" members? Because I was number 11 to sign up to follow and whine and I think that ought to be worth something...I'm just sayin'!! Well, whining. Sort of. LOL!

Domestic Goddess (In Training) said...

But if I whine online... what will I talk to my husband about?

Marinka said...

Domestic Goddess--I'd think that not having anything to talk to your husband about would be a bonus!

CW2--your excellent suggestion of a badge is now under consideration. Great. More work for us. Thanks a lot.

ShallowGal said...

Damnit CW2, I had passed that suggestion off as my own.

xoxo, SG

Vodka Mom said...

Whine? Wine? I just wanted a drink, dammit. Do I have to actually TALK???


Is that a whine?

Comedy Goddess said...

I love bite sized pieces of whining. So much less time consuming than the full blown version.
