So I woke up this morning feeling pretty good about myself until I remembered I had admitted to my sister I liked Michael Bublé. The scary part is that I was sober. Goes to show that even the secrets you think you will take with you to your grave have a way of coming out when you least expect it. Either that or I just have the will power of a hyena.
Anyway, the conversation started off innocently while we were unloading her Christmas tree from her Explorer:
Sister Nancy: Pull it up and I'll shove from my end [in a whisper] I like Michael Bublé.
Me [in a shocked yell]: ME TOO!
We obviously both realized that it would have been better to confess to shoplifting cat food than to confess to the Bublé thing but it was too late to take it back so we justified by saying:
Me: But just his songs because he's a total dillweed.
Sister Nancy: Yeah and he's ugly too!
Me: Yeah he is!
Sister Nancy: But I still want to see him in concert.
Me: Hey, hey! Let's not go too far, okay?
As for me, I started liking the dude when somebody broke into my house and left their Michael Bublé CD behind. First I liked one song then another and then Christmas came along and he covered some Christmas oldies... next thing I knew my iTunes account was loaded with Bublés
::sigh:: I'm not proud of it but at least I know I'm still a badass because if Michael Bublé and I were to get into a fist fight, I'm confident I can beat him up and make a purse out of his vocal chords.
Oh, don't tell Nancy I told you.
Bee n' Andy Comic Strip is back this coming Sunday! I know, YAY! Confetti!
Also, all you bloggers out there, start preparing for Bee's Musing's second annual Secret Santa Can Suck It!* Woohoo! Yeah! More Confetti! With Gold Sparklies!
I know what you're thinking, "Bee, the economy has me rationing my dog's food. Poor Pudgy now goes by the nickname of Slim."
Never fear! This involves absolutely no money at all and the price is as cheap as imagination! Not to imply your imagination is cheap because I know it must cost your employers thousands of dollars while you sit at your desk and imagine yourself rich, sitting next to a model (man or woman, whatever tickles your fancy), drinking rum out of Brad Pitt's bellybutton.
For those of you who weren't around last year, that's when I picked a blogger out of a hat and assigned him/her to another blogger. And then you tell them what you would have gotten them had you the money and/or you know, cared, you post it on your blog and fun ensues. It is Secret Santa so you can't tell the person you got that you got them because then it's not a secret. That's the other part of the fun. Clicking through the list of participants to see who your Secret Santa is.
... I know it sounds complicated but it's really not.
It was a lot of fun last year but sadly some of the people that participated last year are either no longer blogging or I haven't kept in touch sooooooo! If you want to sign up for it, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the link to your blog.
