The Aura of the H-Man
Find Me On:
Our friends used to have a great dog that would require permission to eat treats. Seriously, they’d leave a pile of Milk Bones on the floor, and when the dog wanted one, she would pick it up and give it to a human, who would then have to take it and give it back to her before she would eat it. My dog at that time would have basically just eaten all the Milk Bones in about 30 seconds.
I’m on board with 19 of these things, but seriously you guys, my sports team is the best sports team. I’m sorry, but it’s true.
Wow, congratulations. That’s pretty crazy fast, but as your internet boyfriend, I think I approve of this person. I’ve had a serious girlfriend for a few months now, and I think we both get a little freaked when the conversation turns to co-habitation, marriage, and babies (even though we practically live together now to the extent my apartment is essentially a very large, expensive closet). We were out in California last weekend for a wedding and did the “meet the family thing” while we were out there. She got sick on the trip and of course I joked “you’re not pregnant, right? ha ha ha”, and a few minutes on Google checking symptoms was enough to totally freak her out. She’s not though, we checked. phew!
Anyone, nice to see all of V-gummers doing well, as I’ve been kind of absent lately for no apparent reason. But yay, old man fatima!
Paw-tective custody is actually kind of adorable if said by a person who is not certifiably insane. I’ll leave it to the individual to determine if saying “Paw-tective custody” alone is enough to declare somebody certifiably insane.
Was he one of the Higgins Boys, or was he Gruber?
I hear they’re planning to make it a prequel.
I used to go to Disneyland all the time as a kid, but I can’t recall ever going on the mustache ride.
I don’t know what you’re talking about. This is exactly what I do every night when I go to bed and pull the covers over me.
Who needs crawling? Strap a saddle on one of those big pups and let that baby get to work babyin’ around!
She’s like a modern day Kent Brockman!
“I’m Kent Brockman. On the 11:00 news tonight, a certain kind of soft drink has been found to be lethal. We won’t tell you which one until after sports and the weather with Funny Sonny Storm.”
I saw one of those for the first time a few years ago, and looked like the greatest invention ever now that I’m no longer a little kid.
I loved the cover of your first LP.
Meh. Needs less trampoline, more accident. Or at least an equal amount of trampoline.
Ugh, my data? Too. Much. Work!
Ugh. Meeting with a state auditor this morning at work, so I got almost no sleep last night. Then a Canadian tax issue blew up with another client that’s blaming us for things that aren’t our fault. But, on the bright side, I’m having dinner with arguably the preeminent golf course architect on the planet tonight, so that should be fun.
Why do you think they’re so polite? I’ll tell you why. It’s because doing something impolite is an offense for which 9-1-1 can be called. It’s culture of very polite fear!
That actually makes me kind of hungry for a twerky sandwich.
I like to think I’m pretty well tuned in to pop culture for the most part, but Videogum constantly reminds me how old and out of touch I truly am. For example, when I see a post like this, my first thought isn’t “I wonder what kind of strange and interesting person Shailene Woodley is”? My first thought is “who in living hell is Shailene Woodley”?!
I babysat my sister in law’s sister’s kid a few years ago when she was about seven months old. This has been my only experience babysitting an actual baby (as opposed to an older kid). She was a really good baby and just kind of played and had fun for the first few hours, and slept for the next three hours, and man those were a nerve-wracking three hours! She didn’t move an inch! I had to keep checking on her to make sure she was still breathing, because man, I don’t even know….
Wednesdays always seem to be uneventful for me. So in other words, this was pretty much a typical Wednesday. I do, however, have tickets to see Titus Andronicus tonight (the band, not the play), which is great because the Monitor is just about the best album ever and I haven’t seen them in two whole years!
They had high hopes for the effectiveness of the full length movie, but unfortunately, studies showed that most guys only need to watch it for about 90 seconds.
I think you film someone bouncing around on a trampoline HOPING that there will be an accident. And when it happens, and you’re filming it, it’s like finding that golden ticket! Think of the millions of hours of boring dudes bouncing that DON’T make it to Youtube. It’s kind of like watching NASCAR. The crashes aren’t staged or anything, but that’s pretty much what you’re hoping to see any time you turn it on.
Beck Bennet is the guy from those AT&T ads with the kids. I read a piece about him (he’s a Chicago area native), and other than the fact that he went to USC, he seems like a good guy. Hopefully he’ll be funny on SNL.
