It's true: sometimes I come to this space, cast a furtive glance over one shoulder and then proceed to strip off layers of my skin for you. See? I hold up tissues of my dermis to the light, carefully pointing one sharpened eyebrow pencil at each follicle as if it were a miracle.

And then there are days like today, days that I stand here bundled in my pjs, croissant crumbs scattered down my front like elephant dandruff. See? I say on days like this, and I point at something funny, something crass, something that makes me smile in the way that it's so perfectly clumsy and human. As if it were a miracle. Because it is, all of it.

Happy Friday, friends. May you laugh so hard that you cry.


Ana said... much as i love paul rudd (he might actually be in my top five), i think i wan't those 3 minutes and 56 seconds of my life back.

Ana--you're telling me that didn't make you laugh and laugh and laugh, and then laugh some more?

It's a good thing you're now watching ANTM; otherwise, I'm afraid our friendship would be in serious jeopardy.

we are going to see it tonight and taking my 11 year old stepson. i fear the things he will learn from this movie. :)

I need a guy like that to be my new boyfriend. If you know anyone like that, you know where to find me.

Farts are your body's way of making people laugh until they snort milk out of their noses. And I do mean "your" body because I refuse to fart.

I'd rather be a bridesmaid said...

the brosure was all mine.

That was so stupid and immature...its amazing to me that a grown man would act like that.
I don't care if I see that goof in a long long long time! UGH

See, that's why I love this place. I'm the same way. Some days I've got it, and some days I can't come up with anything more than a Beavis-style giggle fit about fart jokes and Jersey guidos. I'm forwarding this to Paul!

"What would a loose asshole fart sound like?!"
