Are You Sure That Wasn't You?

Remember That Time...

...you did your Shirley Bassey impression onstage at The Hollywood Improv?

Heh. Man, you sure looked like a--

Wait...that was me.




(If you can't see the video clip, please click here.)

And...

Thank you to both Melinda L. Wentzel and Lisa Tognola for laying the Versatile Blogger Award on me! As they say in France, "ShaBAMsky!"

And (Part Deux)...

Here at the LJKGW corporate multiplex, we are gea
ring up for the insanely exciting festivities that the party planning committee has come up with to mark the forthcoming release of The CHICKtionary (known around the water cooler as "my book").

I hope you'll join us for these fun and decidedly non-educational activities, if only for the free crullers and deeply discounted massage-chair rates.

We're in countdown mode here, people! (Full disclosure: we're not sure of the exact date we're counting down to. Nevertheless - COUNTDOWN MODE!)

And I AM glad to see you.

You know, I'm doing this countdown with you.

Because I know this is going to be laugh out loud funny, and I just can't wait for that.

I love you, Anna Lefler.

Also, I'm grinning ear to ear that I got to see you shine here.

First time?

You were wonderful.

My fave: the tart n tiny.

I'm in countdown mode, too! And not just for the ginormous cruller. Though, it does look a good bit more delicious than the organic "super yogurt" I am presently shoveling in for breakfast. (I'm pretty sure the only "super" power my yogurt has is the way it can render me able to feel smug about how I'm eating *yogurt* and not, y'know, doughnuts or bacon or something that actually tastes good for breakfast.)

My father, who was a big CB enthusiast back in the 70s and 80s, gave me, his oldest daughter, a CB radio when I left for college in 1989. Oh yes, I was the Queen of Cool driving my 1979 Oldsmobile Delta 88 (navy blue with white velour interior, thankyouverymuch) with my CB hooked up. My CB handle was Bo Peep, both because I grew up on a sheep farm and I was a great Dukes of Hazzard enthusiast.

I am amazed to this day that I was never asked to join a sorority.....

Hi Anna! Long time, etc etc, all the usual excuses. I LOVED your standup! The scary part is I can RELATE to your standup....and I join the countdown to your book. I am ordering the Kindle version, just as soon as my super-nerd husband can show me how...duh..:)

Holy crap! That was hilarious. If only I could manage stand up. But, I'd have to drink so much to get up enough nerve to do it that no one would understand me.
A friend just turned 60 and got a tattoo. This would be the antithesis of edgy.
Can't wait for the book to come out.

Paula said...

Congrats on your book! Funny AND pink? I'm buyin'. (very astute observation about bitter, high-strung yogis)

Your first time? Unbelievable.

Back in the 70s, my family owned & I operated a convenience store that drew in truckers who became regulars. My favorite thing was to screw with their handles. That big tough guy named Flyrod became Fishingpole.

If I knew you then, I'd definitely have not called you TartnTiny. You'd have been Jailbait to me.

Cheryl said...

Just so you know, my pre-ordered copy of your book is growing moldy in my damn shopping cart.

Great job, TNT. Can't wait for the Chicktionary to debut. I know it will be filled with all manner of TNT humor.

Fireblossom said...

Free crullers?!? Stoppittttttt...

"Streaks are what bad dreams are made of." Bwahahahaha. That was terrific. Also loved the Goldfinger highway chase sequence with the goodbye to the kiddos.

My vast trove of comedy stylings is limited to "Why did the chicken cross the road?", "A piece of string walks into a bar", and "Knock! Knock!". Glad to see that some of us have a better grasp of the funny!
