I Blogged Myself

Why do you always come here? I guess we'll never know. It's like a kind of torture, To read this blog, y'know.

Welcome to the most sensational, inspirational, celebrational, Muppetational blog since Kermit left just a little bit of the swamp in his pants.

We'll be right back after these important messages ...


I'm off to Sydney:

And I'll be there for twelve days or so, which means no posting in that time.

Try not to miss me too much (at this stage that shouldn't be hard), and I'll be back in just under two weeks.

I currently have about ten posts sitting in draft format, including my extensive answer to timt's question on Kermit and Miss Piggy's marriage, so don't be disheartened. Bear with me.

(No, literally - the bear's coming with me. In fact, he's driving the Studebaker.)

Blog ya later!

Ode to Wifey

Someone you're going to need to know through my writing is Wifey. She and I married mid-2002, and we're head-over-heels in love. She's my whole world.

You're going to need to know her because I'll be referring to her every so often. She's like my grounding rod. She keeps me level, and brings me back to Earth when I need it. She's my anchor.

Wifey only needs to be known as 'Wifey'. It's not necessary to go into specifics. She's a bit wary of this whole 'blog' thing (not being a blogger herself), so I need to draw her into this world gently and in moderation. Don't spook her.

Because I won't be using an actual picture of her at any point, here's a fairly adequate replica of the beauty that is my wife:

Here's another picture of her:

Here's another:

And here's her mother:

Just kidding!

Wifey is a wonderful life partner who recently nursed me through an illness not altogether unlike the common cold (come on, it was a really bad cold!) without fuss or complaint. She and I enjoy spending time together, we share the same interests (although she's not as big a Muppet fan as me, but fair enough), and our future together is certain.

I will be taking care not to offend or alienate her from my life or my blog as a result of me maintaining this blog, and I hope she gets as much enjoyment out of I Blogged Myself as I do.

I just wanted to go on record as saying all that, at the outset.

I wanted you all - and her - to know. She is my world.

Puppet Injustice - Part 1

Not many of you will know this, but The Electric Mayhem lost a member early in their career. His name was Lips, and he was the shaggy-blonde-haired guy who played trumpet.

Lips didn't say very much, but he enjoyed laughing at the jokes made by others in the band, who were supposed to be his friends and bandmates.

It must be said that his trumpet solos were outstanding (even for a human, with real lungs and, ... er, well ... lips), but when he vanished from the band, no one said a damn thing.

That's right - hang your heads in shame, people! While The Electric Mayhem went on to a fabulous career without their former trumpeter, some of us were left wondering what had happened to Lips.

Well, wonder no more. I found him.

Wait, no - that's my grandfather. Here he is. And you'll all be pleased to hear that he met a wonderful woman who became his adoring wife. And they got a dog.

Who wants to be my friend?

I'm a big fan of The Muppets.

No, a massive fan.


I'm not going to claim that I'm their biggest fan or their # 1 fan or anything, because I know there's always someone out there who thinks they're a bigger fan again.

(But I am.)

I've decided to create a blogsite I know I'll want to update regularly, and I figure if I can make it even semi-related to The Muppets, then I'll probably continue to update the thing. Which will be worlds better than my last, somewhat abysmal, attempt.

So welcome to my (Muppet) world. If you have any questions about The Muppets, and I know everybody does, feel free to ask them at any time. I'm going to know. It's as simple as that.

I'll also do the normal blog thing and write about my idiotic thoughts and whatnot. But in the meantime, I want to know if I have any cyberfriends. Who's with me?

... Anyone? ...
