The Hilarity of it All

Dear Blog,
I have not forgotten you. I have just been so busy. I think about you all the time... truly I do... But, what with my store closing (yesterday), the TTIC design team submission (I SO WANT IT!), babies, and Joel McHale... I just haven't had a whole lotta time. You understand, don't you? What? Wait a sec Blog.... you don't know who Joel McHale is? From The Soup on E! No, no, no... it's not called Talk Soup anymore! It's just The Soup. Joel is the host. Best host the show ever had really (sorry Jim!) . So yeah, Gene and I saw Joel the other night in Westbury... what? How was he? Freakin' hilarious Blog! uh? You wanna hear about it? But I was busy giving you an apology for not using you lately... ok OK!!! I'll tell you about Joel! Geez...

Mr. McHale is a tall, lanky guy who is I believe part Finnish (which makes Gene very happy). This lank of his just adds to his comedic nature. He started off Sat. night talking about all things Soupy. From stupid Spencer (does anyone really watch that mess of a show?) to of course, his arch nemesis Tyra. Now picture this... the Theatre at Westbury is a small space and the stage is round. So the bit of bouncing he does on The Soup has now been brought into the 3rd dimension (no not only because he was standing in front of us live), because he's now bouncing and leaping around the stage to give his whole audience a good look at his... well, all of him I guess... So that alone was funny. But then he goes in to other things, like the mysterious bees that keep appearing on stage dying (what's up with that Westbury???), and his grandmother who apparently hates his show. His iprov is amazing (freaky dying bees on stage... come on!), and Gene and I were hysterical the whole time. And then Mr McHale bagins to talk about his 2 sons. Now, if I wasn't a parent with kids around the same age as his, maybe I wouldn't have thought this part to be as funny... but my goodness! Gene and I were crying because we laughed so hard! His older son has an obsession with lights... just like Phoenix. He also appears to be a genius puzzle master although he for some reason he cannot keep his own saliva in his mouth... just like Phoenix. Is this funny to you Blog? Just thinking about it is making me seize with laughter! This guy is ridiculous. We would see him again in a heartbeat. We laughed more with Joel than we did with George Carlin (yes, we got to see him live too!). Blog, do you have some free time? You should go see a Joel McHale show. He's amazing. And if you don't believe me... just ask MagicKat. She'll tell you the same thing. GO SEE JOEL!!!!!

Ahh, thanks Blog. I feel so much better now.

I ADORE JOEL MCHALE! How completely amazing that you got to see him live! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE HIM! I never miss The Soup. Did he mention Spencer's creepy flesh-colored beard? It sounds like you had a great time!

yay - joel WAS awesome. i loved how his act just bounced around from the show to tyra to ryan to his kids to grandma without any sense of structure - it was just like being out with him to dinner and having a random conversation moving from one crazy topic to the next.

all hail joel mchale! WOOHOO!!

Standing in the Clouds with ADfD

Hello! I have a new card with a lovely image from A Day for Daisies to share with you today. The digi is called Standing in the Clouds.

I colored this beauty with Zig Clean Color Markers and a water brush. Here's a close up.

My background was created with the Piasso Stencil from Dreamweaver (available from Stampendous), White VersaColor Ink (from Imagine), a sponge dauber, and Detail White Embossing Enamel. Then I sprayed the background with Sheer Shimmer Spritz in Frost. You'll see that better in the photo below. The entire background looks frosty. My sentiment is from the Soaring Sentiments set. I edged it and my card base with Bahama Blue and Danube Blue Memento Ink, which really matched her jacket perfectly.

See the pretty shimmer? I love the Sheer Shimmer Spritzes, and I encourage you to give them a try. I'll have another project for A Day for Daises soon, and our February challenge will be posted on Friday. Thanks for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
