2014. The year that WASN’T on The Kosbie Show. Have you ever been so busy living your life that you ignored your blog for more than year? And during that time, your comedy idol who you named both your dog and blog after was revealed to be a skeezy sexual predator? Haven’t we all done that?!
Hey everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend/August-October! My weekend was pretty good (my August through October was pretty fantastico). Only one little incident of tension. Husband and I had the following conversation in our car Friday night:
I’m going to start by saying that Husband was not excited about me writing this post. Actually, he told me not to do it. Period. He threatened me. He said that if I wrote this post, he would send it to my parents. While Husband is the best in many ways, he clearly has not learned that telling me not to do something is the best way to get me to do it. (Or maybe he does know me and wants me write this post…am I playing right into his hands?!? MIND FREAK!) Continue reading
The older I get, the faster time seems to move. It’s crazy! It also makes me want to go back to visit Glynnis of the past and give her a good, hard shake. Like this:
But knowing myself like I do, I bet young Glynnis would not have listened:
*Sigh* I wonder if I ever really thought anyone was buying that story…anyway! What I’m getting at is this: time moves quickly, there’s so much to do, and then BAM! You turn around and realize that you haven’t updated your blog since Halloween! I’ve been super busy doing all kind of stuff. Like:
- Getting Engaged! My gentleman friend and I have decided to hang out forever, and it’s really exciting. Right after we got engaged, we went to visit my family in Connecticut to celebrate Halloween (the best holiday of all), and then there was a flippin’ snowpocalypse that devastated my hometown and RUINED Halloween. There WAS no Halloween or electricity, or hot water, or heat. It was awful. But don’t worry, we got our engagement picture:
Cold, greasy, and wearing my Dad's clothes. Nothing says "ROMANCE" like a destructive force of nature.
- Acting/Playing/Being a MOVIE STAR (sort of)! I worked with a really fantastic sketch troupe this fall/winter and had a blast. AND! It lead to me making my film debut. I got to play a cop AND swear! Please enjoy:
- Doing Crap Like This To Kosbie:
I’ll post again soon, friends! Until then, take a picture of you and your pet dressed in the same outfit and post it in the comments!
Ok, so remember that time I approached the McAlister’s van like a crazed cookie/deli-sandwich monster?! Well! My gentleman friend and I went to McAlister’s for lunch the other day and look who we saw there:
So, my gentleman friend and I play this game where we take a commonly used phrase or cliché and change one word or letter in it to make it sound silly (or in some cases, sillier). My next few posts will be illustrations some of our favorites. If I can remember, I will try to give credit to whomever came up with each one, but I admit now that I am a glory monster and might just say that I made them all…unless you think they are not funny. In that case, it was 100% Sam.
First up – let’s tackle that major declaration of love: “I want to share my life with you.” Dull, played out, unoriginal, right? Why not try:
So much more intimate! And honest. Nothing says I love you like swapping parasites. Stay tuned for more fun twisted phrases! If you have a good one, shoot me an e-mail and I’ll see what I can do about bringing your witty turn of phrase to life in MS paint!
I don’t know about you guys, but I LOVED Google’s homage to Cézanne today. It got me thinking about art and expression and that got me thinking, “Hey, I like to draw – why don’t I try to, but like for real?” So, I grabbed my handy sketch pad and set out to find a subject worthy of my creative expression. I chose this picture of my gentleman friend and me that I keep on my nightstand:
