Thurday Thirteen #whatever


Yo. Trevor still here. This blogging gig sucks, but Susan’s sick. Really fucking sick. Not getting off the couch sick.

So I’m gonna make fun of her this week.

Thirteen Comments from the Peanut Gallery

1. Mitchell: Look! She’s a shadow of herself!
Trevor: Who let you in here? Did that woman of yours wise up and throw your ass out?

2. Remember this whiny post? Ha. It’s got nothing on that blob parked on the couch.

3. We all know she writes book reviews over at Front Street Reviews.
Mitchell: That’s why over on her sidebar, it’s listed under “byline.” Which is a play on Chelle, in case you hadn’t noticed.
Trevor: Like I give a fuck? Let me get back to the story.

4. Beats the shit outta us where or how it happened, but these Bostick Communications people picked up Susan’s name. Not a bad idea, except their oh-so-researched targeted marketing has her deleting about five e-mails a day.
Mitchell: Stays silent.
Trevor: Gets mad that Mitchell won’t play the straight guy.

5. They’re all for Christian lit and non-fiction! Why the fuck would you send a Jewish novelist an offer to review your Christian lit or non-fiction?????

6. Mitchell: She reviewed LL Cool J. And that Brian Wilson book. And White Bicycles. Those weren’t fiction.
Trevor: They were about music.
Mitchell: LL Cool J’s book was not about music. It’s a workout book.
Trevor: You ought to know. You’re sleeping with it under your pillow, in the hopes you’ll wake up and look that good.
Mitchell: Actually, I loaned it to Daniel. I think he’s using it.
Trevor: He would.

7. Now, here’s a good one to show you how out of it Susan is. The Tour Manager called to tell her that this new doohickey showed up.
Mitchell: It’s a trainer, for her bike. You need that part to make the joke work.
Trevor: Yeah. Her trainer. It was waiting at the office for him. And Susan’s first thought? What’s she doing there?
Mitchell: I think it works better if you know that Susan’s got a personal trainer. Or if you hear her tell it. She’s got the space cadet thing down the past few days.

8. Eric: Oh, hi guys. Want to practice when Daniel gets back?
Mitchell: Where is he?
Eric: Off driving Susan’s car. He wanted to know why it’s won Best Car awards a bunch of times.
Mitchell: I can’t believe she’s letting him.
Eric: I was right there. She said, “Mmm-hmmm.” Didn’t even open her eyes or anything.
Trevor: Is that how #2 got permission to play on the computer for a few hours?
Mitchell: Hours?
Trevor: Hours.
Mitchell: Damn, she is out of it.

9. Trevor: We suck at ragging on Susan, know that?
Mitchell: Yep.
Eric: Everyone’s giving her awards again, too.
Mitchell: The two things have got to be related.
Trevor: Ya think, Super Brain?

10. Eric: She’ll have to catch up on the awards when she’s feeling better.
Trevor: At this rate, that’ll be in another week.
Mitchell: Think I ought to call Amy again? She’s awfully out of it.

11. Trevor: This sucks. You can’t rag on someone when she’s this pathetic.

12. Eric: Oh, look! She’s up!
Mitchell: I think she’s hungry. Since Val’s not here, I’ll go see if I can help.

13. Trevor: Yum Yum.

    Sorry you’re still sick, Susan! Congrats on the new trainer, though. I’m sure you’ll be on that bike again soon. Just don’t let Trevor try to fix you anything to eat. Not that he probably would, but you never know.

    LOL Susan! This has a surreal I’ve-been-sick-too-long thing going on. I do hope you feel better soon. But this post was funny from the ‘# whatever’. And the shadow-of-herself photo!

  8. Susan Helene Gottfried

    Poor Susan! Daniel’s got her car! But it’s good to see that Trevor has a conscience when it comes to ragging the vulnerable. (Thanks for visiting my TT)

    Those “poor” boys were trying so hard to pick on you, but even that was a bit over their heads. Sue, hope you feel better soon so that guys can get out to play. I don’t think they will make good nurse maids.


    February 6, 2008 11:23 pm

    OH MAN! Everyone’s getting sick right now! Get better soon… at least before Valentine’s DAy.

    Gosh Trevor, why do you have to be so disrespectful? It’s really unnecessary and unkind. You would so complain if someone spoke about you this way.BR/BR/Get Susan some chicken soup and an apology – pronto!

    Susan is obviously still much more creative sick than I am healthy!BR/BR/Now get up off your lazy ass and go make her some soup you ingrate! She gave you life and you can’t even make a lousy can of soup? It’s not like I’m suggesting you actually chop vegetables or anything, just warm it up.

    If that target marketing is sending you Christian lit emails, they aren’t even close to the bullseye. If I wasn’t such a cynic, I would be tempted to try sleeping with a workout book under my pillow in hopes of transforming my body overnight.
