Worst Case Scenario

Every year, my gentleman friend and his brothers participate in the Kick It 3 V 3 Soccer Tournament (which, I just learned by looking at the website, is “The road to WALT DISNEY WORLD Resort…” Funny… I would have guessed I-95).  So, I love my gentleman friend and his brothers very much and would really like to play with them in the tournament but  maybe I ran track and cross-country for years because I have zero coordination and have never mastered any activity involving teams and a ball.  But don’t feel badly! I get to contribute every year in a special, important way: I make the jerseys! The guys always pick a really great team name and I have a lot of fun doing it. This year they were “Worst Case Scenario,” a team inspired by Nicolas Cage, his films and talent.

Written in the stars!

So the other day I went to the Caribou Coffee with my super, awesome friend VA (yeah, her name is Virginia but I type it VA – keep up, slugs) and while we were there, I grabbed the latest edition of “Coffee News.” For those you who don’t know about “Coffee News,” I suggest you stop living under a rock because it is a seriously informative publication. It has trivia, ads for all kind of things (Lawn Maintenance and Massaging Insoles just to name a few!) and MOST importantly: HOROSCOPES. Ok, so before I go any further, I am not one of those people who knows all about the star signs and can say things like “Well of course he dumped you, he’s a Leo!” but maybe I secretly wish I were.  Anyway! Here was my horoscope for the week:

You could have a low tolerance for boredom and following the rules this week, and you may make some creative changes and discoveries.

Uh – horoscope for the week? Try: horoscope FOR MY LIFE! See! This is my problem, I immediately get sucked into the thrall of Astrology – I want to see and believe so hard! But then I think twice (like my liberal arts education taught me) – who out there actually has a high tolerance for boredom and likes to follow rules? And isn’t it possible that I “may” do anything, really? Wether the stars called it or not, it is true! I’ve set a course for adventure and now find myself back in North Carolina to be creative, break rules, not be bored and listen to my heart!

As I mentioned earlier this week, I had quite the adventure getting down here! There was roadkill, there were animal sedatives, there was fast food consumption (which I regretted almost immediately), there was the license plate game (my gentleman friend and I got 34 of 50 states! including the elusive Alaska!) and I would love to draw it all for you guys to see, but here’s  the thing that NC does not have: a scanner that I can use to put up my drawings. In a moment of madness and frustration I tried using MS Paint :

Fail.

So yeah, that’s not an option. It takes a long time and there are people who already do this better than me. Like, way better. So! Bear with me! I’m working on it! In the mean time, enjoy my attempts to fill my post with images to excite and distract you!

And I KNOW you’re all watching team USA in the World Cup, so I’m not even going to mention that (seriously, you better be watching). And also – I hate that I’m such a girl, but did anyone else see that Landon Donovan said “Hi, Bianca!” and then blew a kiss?! She’s his ex-wife! Maybe they’re still in love?! Or just amicable exes? Refreshing either way. For real this time! BYE!

Be Back Soon!

For the dozens (ok, 2) of you who panicked (alright, fine! not panicked…noticed) when you didn’t get a new Kosbie Show post today – don’t worry! I’m alive. I’m on a personal adventure right now, but I’ll be back posting regularly later this week with tales of my adventure! Just to entice you, it involves roadkill, fast food, 5 hour energy drink and Kosbie on sedatives!

Keep it real, Kosbie fans!

USA! USA!

Normally I’m a lover, not a fighter, but today’s comic is inspired by one of my readers and probes at one of the deepest, most important questions that man grapples with: what would it take for you to eat a pair of your own underwear?

This post is going to be short and sweet because I am watching the USA Slovenia game right now (just like all of you should be – work, shmork). Those Charlie Brown jerseys are starting to piss me off…

Diamonds Don’t Bling In The Dark

Merry Monday, readers! I hope you all had fantastical weekends! I spent mine watching soccer, hanging out with my sisters and getting addicted to True Blood. I fought it for so long, but I finally caved. I’m only a little bit into season 1, so nobody tell me what happens! I know the vampire thing is way over done and there is a lot of sexy time in the show, but it’s refreshing to see so many diverse, complex characters interacting with one another and lots of themes and ideas at work.  Plus! Artie from Glee is totes on the show! SOLD!
