I left you all hanging.
I have good reasons.
I will get to them.
Emotionally, what I was hoping for Saturday night:
(Adam Bomb, I know you feel this)
(really, if you were born anywhere from 1982 to 1986, this HAD to have meant something to you... a top-50 elementary school moment EASY)
What was probably more realistic:
Fight Of The Year? Are you sure??? Arthur Tsesura begs to differ.
Toddy says: "The fire in his heart is only rivaled by the flames on his shorts."
What actually happened:
He didn't even fight.
"I tried to tell him to stay around and fight, but he just left and blazed."
-Jim Thomas, President of FISTS OF GLORY.
Jason tells it differently.
So does Myspace.
"I stood there in my MMPR shirt, Dino Thunder colored bead necklace, and a Zeonizer strapped to my wrists! Lol!"
"She walked us right up to him and just was like 'Jason, these two boys are some of your biggest fans, and I wanted to make sure you got to meet them.' I freaked out silently, of course. My GOD he was ripped! He looked at me and shook my hand and kinda laughed a bit -- 'Wow, got the gadgets and everything, huh?', he said. 'You betcha!!'"
"One funny detail tho, Jason's shorts he had on for combat said "Fearless Frank" across the front! LOL!!! :lol: "
Now. Why did this take five days to write?
(A) I loved staring at MJ's post.
(B) For real.
(C) I was working on something else You-Me-Go.
(D) You don't believe me?
(E) Here's what I had written:
********NOT A REAL POST I AM ONLY LETTING YOU INTO THE INNERWORKINGS OF A TWO-WEEK OLD BLOGGER HERE GOES****************
An introduction is in order.
"I'm 40!!!! I DON'T KNOW IF THERE IS A TOMORROW!"
This is a very good thing.
So good, in fact, that I sat around to transcribe the entire episode... with a little help from Matt and Seth.
We care. About you. Our mainly anonymous friends.
(hi Matt Wilson!)
*********LOOK IT WAS CLEVER AND WONDERFUL AND I'M SERIOUS WE WROTE OUT PRETTY MUCH THE ENTIRE EPISODE INTERSPERSED WITH WITTY COMMENTS BY YOURS TRULY************
But. Here's the problem. It wasn't THAT witty.
Only kind of. And barely.
I'll even give you some examples:
Tessa: "What I bring to the table - I'm really funny, I have great morals, I need an intellectual challenge."
Megan arrives!!! She's the local favorite!!! Chi-rock!!!
"Some of the girls might look at me and say, 'she doesn't know as much... she's 21.'"
"Well, maybe I am super young, maybe I am super naive... but I don't know that in my own mind."
MEGAN! MEGAN! MEGAN!
"I love to eat."
"I love food."
MARY IS CRYING! SHE'S UPSET! COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE POOL SITUATION!!!
SHE IS BAWLING!!!
"I FEEL LIKE I HAVE THE POSITIVE POWER WITHIN ME TO PREVENT ALL THIS!!!!"
Limbo time with the cooooooooouuuugars.
"You're 48? That's crazy!"
"I have great genetics."
"I have a son."
Seth can hear Mark's molars breaking.
"I had a chance to see another side of Megan. She's full of life, full of energy."
Mark to Angela: "I just didn't feel like there could be something there in the future."
A hollow limbo victory.
"Can I give you a hug?"
You see what I mean. It makes sense to meeeeeeeeeeeeee. But you didn't watch it (no one expected you to) and thus can't be held responsible for my newly developed appreciation for reality shows and 38 year old women named Jayanna.
BUT. I will also say this. How about we all watch it together this Monday? Me and whoever I can round up will live-blog-it as the show goes... we'll post the comments as they come, too!... and we'll see what e-web magic we can rustle up together.
I think this is a great idea.
It could be a terrible idea.
Monday @ 9/8 Central.
P.S. we rode in an elevator with Bernie Mac on Sunday.
