Hot And Spurious

Today’s Music: Rupert Holmes – Escape
Note on Today’s Music: Because I know he hates this song. hehehe.

(if you’re wondering what’s going on, check here.)
Many of you follow the refreshingly bizarre Edward Hotspur. So you already know he has a thing for Unicorns pissing rainbows. Here’s why. Sorry Hotspur, had to borrow your style for this one.

He was sitting around a campfire, enjoying his gassy beans- no wait, he was enjoying beans and then the gas that followed. He’d taken off his riding boots to relax, setting them to warm next to the fire. A unicorn burst into his campsite setting off mayhem among his compatriots.
They ran around in confusion, dodging the uriney torrent of warm rainbow issuing from the unicorn’s nethers. Only Edward kept his head about him. He reached for a boot, still with its spur on.
Billy Joe Bob Mellissa Jr yelled “You can’t drive off a unicorn with spurs!”
“You can when they’re red hot!” shouted back Edward. He took the boot from the fire, and jammed the red hot spur into an engorged opalescent unicorn testicle.
The unicorn turned bright red, squeaked, and darted off into the woods to find some bactine.
And that’s why he’s known as Edward Hotspur.
True story.

Now let’s take a musical break, from someone I was recently introduced to by Mr. Hotspur.
This is Miyavi. He is the hottest chick I’ve seen in a while. (Yes, it’s a guy.)

Scenes From The End Of The Post
I’m writing this at my desk as the sun streams through the windows. You’d think it would be wetter if it was streaming. Unless you’re streaming porn. That could be wet. Unless it’s home improvement porn. Lots of sandpaper. Probably not so wet.
Hold on, boss wants me to do something. Ok, I did something. I told him I wasn’t going to do it. That’s something, right? Might be the last something I do here, but still.
So where was I? Oh, at my desk. So it’s where I am. Can you have been somewhere and say you were there if you’re still there without having been gone anywhere?
Wait – My brain hurts.. I have to stop channelling Edward Hotspur, today’s flashmob victim honoree before my head explodes.

You should check him out. It’s like no other blog you’ve seen.
Rock on Hotspur, and keep on blogging!

Oh, and buy His Book

In closing, I would just like to say…
Salma Hayek.

Lets Go For A Ride!

Today’s Music: Phoebe Snow – Shoorah! Shoorah!
Music Note: Found this song through Joan Osborne’s album Bring It On Home.

Some people see Wheelchair. She see Opportunity!

There are bloggers who show up and read pages, then drift silently back into the ethernet.
There are bloggers who show up, leave a comment and disappear, never to be seen again.
Some bloggers post stuff they made up, or copied from somewhere else, or just sort of ramble.
Some of them tell you surface stories, or hint at things but don;t really go below the surface or let you in.

Today is the birthday of someone who does none of those things.
In the short time I’ve known her, she has embedded herself in the lives lucky enough to be her online friends. She responds to every comment, starts conversations, and keeps them going with her wit, her charm, and her genuine interest.
Put up a post that you had a bad night, and she’ll give you 50 comments to cheer you up, drawing you out of your funk.
Post that you did something silly, and she’ll follow you across the blogosphere, hounding you until you can’t help but laugh at yourself.
And you’ll thank her for it

I don’t remember how I stumbled across her blog, but I’m glad I did. There are very few people that put themselves out there like that. But she does, and brings you along for the ride.
Want to play games with other bloggers? Yeah, she’ll do that (check the comments!)
Want to play in a flash web mob? Yup, she’s got it covered.
Deeper thoughts? Go evil, and be glad you did? Stunningly played
April Fools joke? Yep.

But it’s not just fun and games.
I’ve seen her hunt and track people down when they were having problems, just to cheer them up. And follow up, just to lend an ear.
She also doesn’t shy away from describing when she has a problem, and she is ridiculously brave about explaining them to us and answering questions about them.

I don’t know how I got on her good side, but I’m glad I did.
And I would never want to be on her bad side.
She takes her Evil seriously.
And stalks like nobodies business!

It was a good day when I met her, and they’ve been good days ever since.
So join me if you would, in a heartfelt sincere wish:
And I hope every day is as bright and shiny as you are, and as you make mine.

Coolest villainess in the sphere!

(Oh, and if all that wasn’t enough, she’s even got a new blog now, Not Hobbling Now!)
