Chasing Christmas---Preempted by Stadium Pal

So, we were in the kitchen and C asked me what I was going to blog about. I told him "I can't remember what the schedule said," to which he replied, "I think you're doing your Chasing Christmas post," to which I replied...."Ohhh crap! That's, like, a thinking-post. I don't want to do any thinking," to which he replied, "Okay, Over-Thinker," to which I responded with a sucker punch to his arm. Don't mess with me, C--I'm skilled and punchy when pooped. I am tired. And that post was supposed to be a good one. Ya know, not like the usual drivel. So, I'm saving it--for a couple of weeks.

Instead, how about I rip off Jess's idea of featuring a bit of someone else's humor? Jess supplemented her bloggy-goodness with Richard Simmons-style hilarity---God..could you imagine if he went by Dick Simmons? Talk about perfection.

No Dicky Simmons on this post, but I do have David Sedaris and his Stadium Pal. I would like to be David Sedaris when I grow up-- I want to create brilliant, humorous books of prose and to live in France with a man. He can keep his Stadium Pal.

That's great! I'm not a huge Sedaris fan. I was a little bored by Me Talk Pretty One Day, but I understand he's kind of a hit and miss author anyway, so I suppose I'll give another of his books a chance.

i have one of his books, may get time to read it sometime this century... i am not making this up, my word for the day is "turbals". is that possibly a condition that occurs when your freedom leg bag backs up? they should sell these things to gamblers in vegas who never leave the tables to relieve themselves and just pee on the floor. or sell them in boxed sets of stadium pal plus a beer hat, $19.95!

I love David Sedaris. I read his first book in Paris (didn't know he lived in france) on vacation.

I had a really good comment (ok that's a lie) but it's totally overshadowed by my word verification for today: snoolum.
I've decided to incorporate it into my daily vocabulary. I think I will use it instead of swearing. I think it will make me very endearing, no?
What? I have to work tomorrow even though I'm still sick? That's snoolum!
Hey boss man, snoolum you! Why don't you take this snoolum and shove it up your snoolum!

omg! used up to 12 times! i'm guessing many would try to stretch that to 15 or 16 times...

i love sedaris' brand of humor. i like to think I'M JUST LIKE HIM, but just not as funny. this is hilarious!

p.s. i suck at reading wicked. we moved. it's in a box somewhere and i can't find it. AND...i've been reading uglies, pretties, and specials (3 different books) by scott westerfeld. YOU SHOULD READ THEM!
