A week past the expiration date

The lovely Christina tagged me to pull out 5 or so posts from my shady blogging "past" that are my favorites/I think are funny/I don't hate/make me look smart. I'm supposed to be looking for "perfect" posts. That would be zero, so I'll go back and find the ones that- while in the clearance bin- are still a pretty good deal.

And remember, I'm still pretty new to this whole blogging thingy.
I'm still a toddler wearing an Elmo diaper in a world of cool, school-skipping, chain-smoking teenagers.

In no particular order:

* Where I shamelessly discuss my long love affair with Duran Duran.

* Where I rant about bullies.

* Because I'm not always channeling Shecky Greene- sometimes I'm not so funny.

* Because Shorty and I shared a special bond that fine evening.

* Because, really- who doesn't feel like this sometimes?

* Because sometimes size doesn't matter.

* And, sometimes when I think I'm not that funny, I pull one out of my ass that just works.

I'm supposed to tag 5 other people, but I'm not going to . No reason. Do it if you want, don't if you don't.

I'm not the boss of you.

Excellent - loved the shorty story. I see some of my exes had apparently moved to your state.

I so heart you! I love(d) Duran Duran. They were my very first concert back in 1984 when I was in 6th grade. We had 4th row seats.
Ahh I thought I'd died and gone to heaven

Does Shorty just carry around letters in case he gets the chance to lick someone's boots? I am scared.

Christa said...

nicely played, wm.
those are some of my favs too.

Awwww, the Rio one was the reason I met you in the first place. Sigh. It holds a special place in my heart. :-)

If you ever cut your hair short I think you should grab the opportunity that year to go to a Halloween party as a Duran Duran poster Nagel girl. You could totally pull it off.

Dr. Monkey referred me. Nice timing, since you're doing this greatest hits meme. Great blog. I'll be back.

if you could see me, i bow down to your funny-bloggerness. the bacon bit really got me. it did...

Wide Lawns said...

Definitely, long lost sisters, from the acronym confusion, to the love of Duran Duran and bacon. Bacon especially.

I really enjoyed all of these but I have to go now because IFGDT.

So, it's like Self[linky]-love?


I haven't read some of them...I'll have to catch up on them this weekend. But the waitress in tulsa one WAS amazing. I randomly think of that post sometimes.

D2...ahhh....I have many posts about them on my blog. I finally got to see them in concert when they reunited and I acted like a teenager. It was good times. I even got a smile from John. I grinned for a month.
