If you’ve ever had one of those moments where you realized you’d done something so stupid that you just had to laugh at yourself, you’re in the right place.
One of those moments where you had to facepalm yourself just hard enough to verify that there was actually a brain rattling around in that skull of yours.
Or maybe just one of those moments where you felt like you had something interesting to add to this conversation we call life, but were too afraid to share for fear it wouldn’t come out the way you wanted.
If you’ve at all found yourself feeling like any of the above, I think this is just the little corner of cyberspace for you.
Why did I name this blog derp2derp?
Well, in order for me to answer that question I should probably clarify the meaning of the word derp, JUST in case some of you reading this don’t already know it.
What does the word derp mean?
Here’s a couple definitions:
Courtesy of Urban Dictionary:
derpy-awkward or embarrassing, especially pertaining to a person:
“Yeah, he’s really derpy.”
Courtesy of Myself
herp derp (or simply derp)-a person who is doing or has done something unusually dopey and/or laughable:
“Ouch! I just walked into the sliding door because I thought it was open.”
“Hahaha. You’re such a herp derp.”
(the terms “herp derp” and “herpaderp” have also been known to be used in rage comics in order to substitute dialogue)
SO, WHY THE NAME derp2derp?
If we’re honest with ourselves, we all know that we have moments that bring out our inner derp and this blog is a way for me to share some of those moments with you. I find that my inner derp surfaces quite a lot (probably more than I’d like) and I figured if I’m going to be plagued with the disease of herpaderpitis, I might as well do something productive with it. From failing at holding simple conversations to everyday ruminations about the value of life, I’d like to give you a chance to both laugh at my silly everyday mistakes and hopefully, share some of your own derpy stories in return. I’d also like to share my thoughts on various matters and hear what you guys think yourselves. It doesn’t matter if you think my thoughts are off the wall bogus or genuinely interesting. I’d like to turn this into a space where everyone is free to share their thoughts. I’d like to hear from you.
Life’s too short to waste time being embarrassed by failure.
Why wince at failure when you can laugh?
Let’s derp it up.
