An Occasion for Pants

            Today, I’m proud of myself. And not just for the usual reasons. Not simply because I remembered to put on underwear, or happened not to strangle myself while flossing. And even though I didn’t eat paint chips, get pancaked by a bus, or succumb to the Freudian urge to fondle myself in public either, still I couldn’t be more self-satisfied. No, today I reached above and beyond the mere call of living and managed to do something useful with myself. Today I made good words. No, not these ones. I wrote my first words of fiction in almost a month, and it feels fucking great.
I know what you’re thinking. Congratulations, jackass, you’re a writer, or at least one of the millions of people who wear the crusty nametag. Nonetheless, today, I’m king of the world and couldn’t feel like more of a pimp if I were sporting a fur-trimmed pink suit and Bedazzled platform shoes, and standing next to Rick Moranis for contrast.  
In the spirit of feeling good… a crappy picture to illustrate why most writers shouldn’t draw. Are you listening, Frank Miller? Enjoy.
It seems like we’ve been getting a lot of e-love from our readers lately. And, if there’s one good thing about e-love, it’s that you can’t catch syphilis from it, unless you’re pretty damn creative, or have a habit of watching scheisse porn at the public library. Today in particular we got the LOL Award from the always awesome Blah Coo Coo Blah. She's a great blogger and you should visit her page, otherwise she might exact Mormon Boyz porn Photoshop revenge on you. Ouch.


Anyhow, listen up and don’t drop the soap, because Bryan and I have decided to share a little love of our own. We’d like to give a shout out to our friend Kirk Farber, whose first novel, Postcards From a Dead Girl (groovy title, no?) was released in 2010 by the good folks at Harper Perennial. If you get a chance, I recommend dropping by your local book dispensary and nabbing a copy, because it’s a great book. Kirk’s okay too. Check him out at his Website, his Blog, and his Amazon.com page.

  13. Thanks for the shout-out, you guys. I'm happy that Postcards made it in your post with other p-words like: pants, paint, pancaked, porn, and platform shoes. Power to the people!

    Cheers!!

  18. It is so intimidating to be in the presence of actually writers. Congrats from a grunt who bangs on the keys.

  19. Ah! Another worthy book. So many books so little time. I'm investigating SA novelists at present, and if I (and other S.Africans) don't, then who the heck will? Not your lot - you won't even understand what we're on about half the time. Call it doing my bit for the third world, if you like.

    Stella is the worst Belgian beer you can get. Try harder :)

  20. Ah, accomplishment. How I love thee.

  24. Yeah, I'd be interested to know if that's a buddy christ figure too hahah

  25. I've been trying to finish a short story for a few weeks now. I can't wait until I do.

    I love the feeling of getting something done like that.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Sorry guys. Not Buddy Christ, just a Jesus action figure. He does have tiny wheels for "gliding action," though. Sadly, it doesn't work as well ever since the walking-on-water experiment.

  27. congrats to both of you
    keep on the nice work

  34. First of all congratulations. I'm not at all surprised though. It's a great blog. You guys are friggin' funny. And then the miracle of a beer turning into Stella Artois. I'm a believer now! Praise 'Action Figure Jesus'. Nice post and love the pictures.

  35. Good cause for champagne! (Or a beer for the shower.) A significant accomplishment - both the award and the piece of fiction. Hell, I celebrate every time I write a paragraph of fiction (which isn't that often).
    Congratulations!

  36. Wow, I feel like such a bitch! I haven't been on in a while, congrats and thanks for the shoutout, even though I'm later than a pregnant woman's period! :D
