…and the most important words that start with each one.

I, P, and A are next.

Surprisingly, that was KB’s doing,

…(pun intended) while researching characters for this Shady’s Short.

Yes, accuracy is important, even when dealing with the Masters of the Universe.

Anyway, while doing so, I stumbled across this obscure character:

Definitely never had that action figure.

His name is Plundor the Spoiler, ruler of Trannis. Whatever the hell that means.

I’m not sure if it’s Plundor’s knee-high boots or his tighty-maroonies with a hole cut out of the butt for his fluffy tail to poke through, but he is easily the most fabulous man-rabbit—Or is it man-bunny?—I’ve ever come across.

And I thought Fisto was over the top,

Wrapped up this one, and now on to this one:

Me finally read this book one day.

In 2008, KB and I saw David Sedaris speak in Milwaukee. We had somewhere else to be immediately after the event and couldn’t stick around for his signing, so I gave my newly-purchased copy of Me Talk Pretty One Day to a friend who was waiting in line and asked him to have David sign it. This is what I got:

Damn right.

Soon after this event happened, we packed our lives up into boxes and moved to L.A. For some reason, however, this book made its way into a box that didn’t make the journey west—at first, we weren’t sure how long our L.A. move would last—instead ending up in a friend’s basement. That basement eventually flooded, the books inside got water damaged, our friend moved, and the box then somehow wound up in my dad’s basement.

Now, the box is finally back in my possession, and I’m ready to read a book that I bought a decade ago.

Let’s hope it was worth the wait.

And then, Mamet,

…with this dumb post.

What began as a way for me to stay productive after Tastes Like Chicken folded has become an archive of the past decade of my life.

On May 6th, 2008, I was living with my girlfriend and an old college roommate in Milwaukee. As of May 6th, 2018, I am a husband, a father of two, I make my living as a screenwriter, and we’re about to have a different old college roommate move in with us!

Some things never change.

This is The Blarg‘s 3,668th post. Over ten years, 15,667 comments have been posted. Not too bad for something I started on a lark.

Thanks to anyone who has ever supported me and this site with a read or a comment. Hopefully, I can keep the stupidity coming for another ten years.

Starting up eleven,
