Tomorrow Is Officially My Favorite Day

Here's your daily reminder: One more day until Magic Mike opens. I'm pretty excited because not only is the movie full of eye candy but it's supposed to actually be a good movie! The reviews have been largely positive so far. Of course, the people writing the reviews might just be blinded by this:
And this:


Yesterday, on the fourth hour of Today during a discussion about the men of Magic Mike and dancing, Kathie Lee said, "Hoda loves fat men."

Hoda said, "Because they make me feel sexier. You know what I'm talking about."

I love Hoda. I want to hang out with her and drink and sing silly pop songs with her. And I actually do understand what she's talking about. Last spring I met this guy who I eventually went out with for much of the summer and, the first time I met him, I thought instantly, "Nope, too good looking." And I just dismissed the idea of him. I obviously have a prejudice I should work on.

Anyway, that's why I can't wait to see Magic Mike, but I truly want this guy to be my boyfriend:
Self-hatred is a real aphrodisiac.


I just bought four tickets to see my future imaginary boyfriend Louis CK in Athens, Ga. in November. I wonder which of my amazing friends will get to go with me. In the comments, tell me why I'm the most awesome person you know and you can be entered for a chance to win.
Important note: The maximum number of tickets I could buy is 4. Louis CK is selling tickets himself to avoid exorbitant service fees, etc. so the limit discourages scalping. So if you'd like to come along for what is sure to be a great weekend, consider hopping over to this Web site and buying your tickets now. Choose the LATE SHOW.

  1. Uh. I'm not even going to pretend like you don't already know how mind-blowingly awesome I am, so I'll just move on to the important details: LOUIS CK. ATHENS, GEORGIA. If you go to there without me, you are a horrible person. Smooch.

    1. Of course your name is already on one of the tickets. No way I'd go to Athens without you! But now you must tell me why I am awesome... I'm waiting...

  2. You are one of my very most favorite people because you are my SIS -- my Sister in Snark. You are just about the only person I know who enjoys a sarcastic comment or hilariously bitchy image as much as I do, which is why we both love Louis CK. That having been said, I remember when I met you for a minute at most, but you were so awesome & warm & friendly & you HUGGED ME & it just really made a very distinct impression on me that not only do you talk the talk of awesomeness, you walk the walk as well.

    1. Well, dammit, this just made me all teary-eyed. Under my sarcastic exterior, I'm a real softy.

  3. Oh. I was supposed to say why you're awesome? I think that goes without saying as well. But ok. Remember that zip-lining thing? That crazy weekend in Nashville? The time we got thrown out of a wine bar? Only awesome people do such things.

    1. Getting scolded in the wine bar is one of my top five favorite things about us!

  4. How often do you get the opportunity to hang out with your friends in B-ham? I would say enough. How often do you get to hang out with your cousin? I would say no where close to enough. Why not have the opportunity to see an amazing, funny, witty person and Louis C.K. at the same time.

    1. Can Athens handle so many snark-filled gingers in one place?

  5. I tell you on a daily, hourly, minute, second by second how awesome you are! That alone should get me a ticket. I didnt even know there was a contest going on. DAMN.I hope Im not too late.

  6. oh...and i read your book in 2 days while AT WORK. and, ON THE THIRD AND FOURTH DAYS, I offered feedback. Thats the flipside of how awesome I think you are and in return shows how awesome I am. Your awesomeness makes me that much more awesome. MAN I KNOW HOW TO USE MY WORDS, HUH?

  7. Quick reminder: Who walked to the gas station to get gas when the car ran out on the side of the road in somewhere between Mississippi and Louisania?

    1. That's an excellent point. But you're supposed to be telling me why I'm so awesome!

  8. First off, you are the best cousin a young ginger could ask for. You truely have an amazing ability with sarcasim and snark that I have never been able to pull off without becoming an asshole. You are at that happy medium of being funny and blunt but not letting people know that you are offending them. (Which makes you my inspiration). Plus, you're the only other fun cousin in the family.
