…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,

…I adopted a little four-month-old mutt named Lacy.

Lacy had been adopted by a family one month earlier. An hour before I arrived at the shelter, that family had returned Lacy for “playing too rough” with their child. I translated this into “just being a puppy.”

I had never owned a pet, let alone a dog, so I was admittedly nervous about my decision to take this sweet little girl—a sweet little girl with a ton of energy and a penchant for eating things that weren’t even remotely edible—home with me.

I’m so glad I did, because it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.

On the morning of March 18th, 2006, Lacy was returned to a shelter. Later that afternoon, she left it for good with me and a new name: Mr. Fabulous.

The best.

She’s the best, I love her to death, and I can’t imagine life without her.

Happy Anniversary,

-Daddy

…be sure to head on out and help celebrate the ten-year anniversary of The Midnite Show (AKA Cock ‘N’ Toast) with a bunch of my good friends.

Wishing I was home,
