This is going to be a weird, all over the place post and there will be poop, so brace yourselves.
First of all, I want to say thanks. Thanks for sticking around. You could be anywhere right now, but you’re here with me, and that’s a pretty nice feeling. When I look at all of the “likes” on Facebook, the “+1s” on G+, the tweets, and the comments, I get a warm and fuzzy wave of happiness come over me. Yesterday there were a couple of comments made on Facebook after some friends shared my post, and those made me really grin like an idiot. One was from Jason Beatty (shout out to my new homie), who loves the blog, and said that Therapy Thursday “always get legit LOL’s”
Well, Jason, I’m glad that you like the Therapy Thursday segment, because it’s my favourite post too, but I’m afraid that there may not be one this week, because of a lack of questions. I have put out the request on the blog’s completely awesome and fun Facebook page (go “like” it now), as I do every week that people don’t send in a question or problem, but this week I didn’t have much of a response. It’s not that I need people to send them in, because I am quite capable of throwing something together in a pinch, but it sure makes it easy on me when I’m given a topic to write about.
Take yesterday’s post. I was reminded of the incident when my friend, Handsome Bastard was tagged in a photo at a little league game. I then mentioned the incident to his fiance, Handsome Bugger, and received a response from Chips ‘n’ Wine, saying that I couldn’t leave it at that. This led to me doing a blog post on a subject that I would have never thought of as blog worthy.
I’m really glad that I did, because it made me dredge up memories and get to the root of a problem that I wasn’t aware I had, but am glad that I’ve mostly corrected. It also made me wonder how many of these stories I have in me that I don’t remember, or don’t think of, because I’ve trivialized them. This is a really good segue to me asking you if there is a certain story that you remember us, or just me, being involved in? Something that you think would be funny, touching, or maybe even just a good learning story. If you can think of one, you can put it in the comments, email me at birdman[at]changethetopic dot com, message me on Facebook through my profile or the blog page, or you can call me. If you have Google chat, we could do a hangout, and then I could see your beautiful/ruggedly handsome face while we spoke. These avenues can also be used for any Therapy Thursday submissions as well. (hint hint, motherfuckers)
If I don’t hear from you, I will assume that I led a rather boring existence, and that I should join a sex club, and start gang-banging middle-aged ladies as their husbands videotape it. I bet I could find some humour in that for the occasional blog post.
A few other things that have been thrown around lately are video blogs, podcasts, or a blog radio talk show. Is that something that anyone would be interested in listening to? How about participating in? I’m quite open to any ideas you folks have, because most of you are way smarter than me, and you know what kinds of things you like. Well, most of you do, and I have to tell you that I find it very kinky. 😉
Okay, I think this is the final order of business.
Photo blogs. Remember them? I’ve just made a tag and category for them if you feel like looking them up. Here’s one of my faves. Anyhow, I would love to get some ideas of fun shoots that we can do. I wanted to do a “trash the dress” style shoot, but I don’t know how easy it would be to find a wedding dress that I could fit into, or how much it would cost. If any of you find a chesty old dress in a thrift shop or something, let me know. I’ll buy it. The season is almost getting too cold for swimming, but I’m a bit of a trooper, so we can get working on it as soon as I get the gown. If you, or your friends think of something that we can do, give us a shout. We have a whole cast of folks that are aching to look foolish again and you could be one of them.
Now, I’ll leave you with another couple of poop inspired “nuggets”:
If you think your friends are jokin’, but your pants are brown and soakin’, diarrhea (plop plop), diarrhea (plop plop),
