Imitation Is the Sincerest Form of Flatulence.

I'm disinclined to acquiesce to your request... it means "no".

Greetings, fellow space monkeys! Dave the Goof here, with another installment of "This Is My Life, Such As It Is." Which isn't much, really. That's why the episodes are only 90 seconds long, including commercials...

Four months of daily posting... a third of a year! Still going strong! Well, you know how it is when you're born in the back of a truck...

Rug Shop Day today, and a productive one at that. My appointment at the doctor's isn't until tomorrow afternoon, so I still don't know if I'm as good as gone or not. I'm not overly concerned. I still have too many unplayed games on my shelf, so I need to stick around. Plus, I need to finish my goal of a year solid of daily blogging. I might be out of material long before then, so I might end up devolving into posting recipes, bad poetry, transcripts of Dr. Laura phonecalls, knock-knock jokes and old grocery lists.

Or I could get guest bloggers! Or I could be my own guest blogger! I'll just wear a disguise! You'll never know! MUAHAHAHAHA!!!!

I went shopping with my mommy today, for a gift for wifey's birthday. I passed loud wind inside Williams Sonoma. As I laughed and my mom walked away, embarrassed, I thought, "Why, I suppose I should mention this in my blog tonight!"

Hey, I knocked out a quick and lazy new comic for you, while I work on my next long one (which I have the script for, just ironing out details). This one is based on the idea of changing one letter in the title of popular TV shows and playing with the results. Here's the first. Click it to enlarge!

Yeah, I know, pretty lame. But it took me all of an hour from concept to finish, which is a far cry from the 20+ hours the last few have been taking. And who knows, maybe one of you thought it was amusing enough to have been worth the 30 seconds it took you to read it!

My work-related "to-do list" is code red as of now. Lots to do. The timing isn't all that red hot - as of tomorrow afternoon, it will be hard to find time to work on stuff before Sunday. Well, good thing I'm a night owl...

The next big events are as follows: Wifey's birthday today (May 1st, that is), her party Saturday. Johnny Boy's birthday on the 8th. Mother's Day on the 10th. We leave for our Albuquerque trip the 15th, returning the 22nd. Then wifey's marathon on June 1.

I guess that means my personal "to-do list" is pretty crammed as well!

It's all good.

I'll have my laptop with me on the trip, so I'll (hopefully) still be able to update the blog, eh.

Here's another video clip of an amazing dude that has likely spent a good portion of his life practicing one thing...

OK, that's insane.

Todayve In History: May 1
- May 1, 1707: England, Wales & Scotland form the UK of Great Britain. (What about zee Germans?)

- May 1, 1776: Adam Weishaupt founds the secret society of Illuminati. (How do they know?)

- May 1, 1844: Samuel Morse sends the 1st telegraphic message. (He ordered a pizza.)

- May 1, 1931: The Empire State Building opens in NYC. (I wonder who the first person to spit off the top was...)

- May 1, 1941: Citizen Kane premieres in NYC. ("Rosebud" was his sled. Owned!)

Lots of other items worthy of inclusion, but I better restrain myself...

Well, my day tomorrow is packed like a Japanese subway car, so I shall turn in for now. I hope your weekend is a great one. (5 points if you name the movie the very first line comes from. Should be easy to recognize, even without Google...Bob!)

Until tomorrow, remember, waste knot, want knot.

Morning, David. Pirates of the Caribbean, I believe.

It's my birthday on Tuesday! Babies born in May are traditionally better looking than those born in any other month. It's a proven fact.

David Wagner said...

What about babies that get spanked in May? Are they more whiny than the others?

In case I miss it next Tuesday, I'll say it now: Happy Birthday!!! Or "Happy B-Day" for short. Not to be confused with "Happy Bidet", for obvious reasons...

And you get 5 points! Bob will be so mad....
