Almost famous, except not at all.

Do you ever have one of those days where you got inebriated Saturday night, passed out face down on your bed, drooled like LiLo and Hooch (or was it Turner?) combined and gave yourself a zit that's keeping you from social engagements so you're at your computer (with Proactiv goo all over your face) and you decide to check Technorati to see if anyone's noticed that you have a blog then you find out that a couple people have? That just happened to me! I am 1/1,583,921.24 of the way on my way to being famous/infamous/not famous!

Dear Shain, if you ever do anything like this again, I will tell everyone your big secret. YOU LOVE OKLAHOMA!




Dear Lost Ogles, you guys are my favorites. Especially Patrick.



This might seem conceited. To which I say, hi, do we know each other? Also, this might be the most recognition I ever get until I'm arrested for stalking Ira Glass.

As probably the only person on the planet who bought Scott Carrier's "Running After Antelope," and having myself considered stalking Sarah Vowell on a fairly regular basis, I commend you for obsessing over Ira Glass.

All the best to you and Pat. Perhaps we can get gary England to officiate the wedding!

Does anyone else thing Ira Glass kinda looks like Dave Foley?

Wow... are you still drunk?

blythe said...

it's possible. editing and cohesion are for suckers, sucka!

Mr. Shain said...

you're welcome for that

Wow, your name-dropping has reached a new low. Now I can really smell the desperation from Chicago. And Shain. I can smell Shain's desperation too.

Mr. Shain said...

be nice to the bee-spot. her ego is like a delicate flower. also, her boyfriend will beat you up now. not really, you're much larger than he is.

blythe said...

you're the best shain. you just get better.

Definite man-crush on Ira Glass.

I knew we'd be on the same page.

Ira's coming to Northampton in November...perhaps time to quit armchair stalking and get down to it?

Michael5000 said...

Wait... the new boyfriend is Ira Glass? Dude, he's married. I bet he "forgot" to mention that while he was sweeping you off your feet with his quirky little anecdotes about extraordinary events in ordinary lives....

Michael5000 said...

And, my Technorati has skyrocketed too. I'm in double digits. I feel like Madonna or something. Ira Glass, maybe.

G said...

Dude, Shain, lay off the bee-spot. It's not like you were putting out, and I'm all the way in NYC, so if B is getting hot, sweet sex, then more power to her.

The [Cherry] Ride said...

Shain, are you calling me fat?

Mr. Shain said...

::Michael5000:: i noticed that... mainly because my technorati is falling like bush's approval rating and as a result you recently surpassed me. it's ok though, i never liked being popular.

::g:: did blythe make you write that? she did didn't she. it's ok to tell us. we'll protect you. but really, i'm just happy that blythe is finally ready to admit she has a gentleman-friend.

::[cherry]:: first off, it's mr. shain. second, no. it's just that you're so much taller than the mr. bee-spot. taller, which generally entails wider. you know, in the shoulders and such. just, bigger.

Mr. Shain said...

as a point of clarity:

my earlier comment was not intended as a jab at the bee-spot-boyfriend. he's a very nice, smart fellow. the point was simply to imply that [cherry] ride was so ridiculously fat, that bee-spot-boyfriend wouldn't be able to take him down. in retrospect, i realize this comment was hurtful to all parties involved, and that was not my intent. i only meant to hurt one person, but perhaps even he doesn't deserve the pain. now more than ever, we need to come together as bloggers and stand united in the face of terrorism and republican youtube debates, as these are the real enemies of our modern age. i hope that this olive branch of an appology can help to heal the hurt and inspire us to blog like we've never blogged before (whatever that might mean). namaste.

Michael5000 said...

That Mr. Shain has character. I think he'd stand up to terrorists. I'm voting for him.

The [Cherry] Ride said...

Shain - we're begging you. Get off the meth.
