BWAHAHA 12/20 – 12/26:

BWAHAHA (Blair’s Week Attempts at Haha’s) 12/20 – 12/26: My GF stumbled upon one of the best written articles I’ve ever seen written about white privilege for white people – by a white person. Remember, privilege isn’t an insult or a bad word. What’s important is that you recognize that you have it and more importantly, that others do not have it (be that white, male, class, etc). Read the article HERE.

So this week was Christmas. I’m one of those atheists who celebrates Christmas. Why? Because no one goes to the mall to sit on Jesus’ lap, that’s why. So what’d you get for Christmas? My friends and my GF got me a lot of stuff I’ll need for the Zombiepocalypse (or camping) and plenty of vaping stuff. I got a tactical vest, tactical leg pouch, 9-in-1 shovel (it comes with a fucking bayonet!), 35-LED light stick, three 10-LED head lamps, camp stove, Aspire Atlantis tank (and five replacement coils), a gift certificate to Professor Vapes (located in Madison, AL), a full body massage at the Chinese Massage place in Huntsville, and a new cutlery set for my kitchen. I did pretty damn good this Christmas!

My friends and I watched The Interview this week (no spoilers, I promise). There were some pretty good laughs throughout the movie. If you are one of my fellow liberals who was worried about a movie showing an assassination of a sitting leader, you should actually watch the movie. It’s not what you expect. I won’t spoil it, just watch it and stop jumping to the wrong conclusions. The Interview has tons of in-your-face and hidden social commentary about diplomacy, foreign policy, media, etc. The Interview is social commentary wrapped in comedy and slapstick. Don’t let the terrorists win! Watch The Interview!

I did get to do a little bit of storm chasing this week, but Alabama proved to be frustrating as always when it comes to chasing storms. At least I got to test out the new AcuRite. It’s designed to mount in your backyard, but I mounted it on the roof of my car. Worked like a champ! Thanks AcuRite!

OTHER STUFF:

  • Out and about and I left my wallet at home. Guess I’m not eating or accomplishing anything. #EarlyAlzheimers
  • Thanks to Old Time Pottery, I have more glitter on me than Tinker Bell.
  • Some Christmas music I actually like!
  • Chasing in Alabama is frustrating. If the cell doesn’t dissipate, trees block the view or farmer John holds up traffic.
  • Something to do on the next camping trip… and by trip… I mean acid trip.
  • Normally we go eat Chinese buffet on Christmas Day with friends. But we found out that Indian Palace is open today! Yep, that trumps Chinese!
  • Who ordered the rain donut?

140 CHARACTER ASSASSINATIONS:

  • Tripster: a hipster in training.
  • Mutant: someone who participates in a mutiny.
  • Kumquats are amazing. It’s like a pear and a tangerine had sex.
  • At Joe Cocker’s funeral, you can leave your hat on. #RIPJoeCocker
  • Thanks to smart phones, awkward silences aren’t that awkward anymore.

CAPTION CENTRAL:

  • I can't tell... is she keeping his hand warm or is he keeping her butt warm? Or is it more a symbiotic relationship?

  • Do you even hack, bro?!?!

BWAHAHA: 4/1 – 4/7

BWAHAHA (Blair’s Week Attempts at Haha’s) 4/1 – 4/7: I didn’t do shit this week. In fact, I’m posting this three days late. Why? Because my life has made a turn toward the incredibly happy. I’ve found it hard to be funny when I’m this happy. I’m used to being pissed off and mad all the time and that was the source of my humor. It’s also hard to find time to be funny when you want to spend your free time with someone else: when your total mind and thought are dedicated to your life with another human being.

I find moments now and then, hence a few things below, but I find these rare moments lacking. Not just lacking my normal hate/rage-based self, but lacking the humor I’m used to. They feel forced to me. They may be funny or they may not be, but I have to find the funny myself. I find myself these last few weeks questioning my place in comedy and how (and if) I will continue to do comedy. I’m still the class clown with my friends, but that doesn’t translate well to the stage. So I either have to find my rage again (which I don’t want to do) or find a way to incorporate my comedy into my newly found happiness. Until then… be patient: or don’t be patient. Either way is fine with me.

I will, regardless of any decision I make, continue to do the Critical Eye Podcast. Speaking of such, Tom is back in town and I’m hoping to get him back on as a guest at least, and maybe we can convince him to come back full time!

4/2

I don’t care how awake you are when you sit down: waiting rooms just make you tired.

4/3

Finally watched Anchorman 2. My favorite part was the soundtrack.

4/4

Me make fire! Me have beer. Me have woman. Now me need kill Mammoth!

4/5

Someone help me… I’ve accidentally found redneck heaven. #FleaMarket

I thought I was at a Drag Queen convention, then someone told me it’s prom night.

4/6

No more buffet for John! He will be missed.

4/7

I went camping last weekend and my girlfriend took a picture of me all bundled up in a blanket sitting close to the fire. Some of my friends’ comments on this picture were “These are not the droids you’re looking for,” “Use the Force, Luke,” “Need a pacifier?,” and “Swaddling cloths.” My friends are silly… but maybe they’re onto something.

My friend Cory, inspired by the “swaddling cloth” comment, decided that my picture needed to be Photoshopped into something more grand:
