The Goodness Continues...
Oh...wow. Can I request that you do a "running diary" (like the one you wrote for Jalen's graduation video)? I'll get you started:0:10 - Aaron's head inexplicably begins tilting to the right and continues to become more and more parallel with his bedroom floor for the remainder of the video.
Mike dragged me away from the end of the Dodgers game to see this! We love the blog and hope for a thousand more posts!!!(And Mike asked me to ask you what's up with the five-second "Michael Jackson at the Super Bowl" delay at the very beginning where you're just mugging for the camera? I think he's going to watch this video a few more times before he goes to bed :) )
It's my *dining* room, jerk. And, I like how you gave up on your Dodgers (with Mrs. That Mexican Guy valiantly keeping the faith) just to watch my ugly mug.
The video was a tad creepy, but I can't quite put my figner on why. The eyes were definitely showing signs of long work hours and a couple of brewski's. But it was fun hearing the little lady yell from the other room, "Is that Aaron?!" Bravo to the 1000th post.
Needs more forehead.
Thanks for everything, Aaron. Congratulations on 1,000 and thanks for making my work day a little more tolerable.
I really wish I could get youtube at work, as this is where I read your blog. I always have to try to guess what references you are making when you insert hyperlinks. Sounds like I'll have to check this out at home. Congrats on the milestone, Cam.
Congrats on post #1000! I gotta admit that I'll have to wait until I get home to listen to the video since I've got no sound on these speakers. Am I right in assuming Mrs. Bootleg and/or Jalen is holding you hostage? I'm pretty sure I could read your lips mouthing "my captors are treating me well". Should someone call 9-1-1?
Congrats on the 1000th post and may there be a 1000 more. just a little tip if you put a little foundation on the forehead the glare would be cut down.
As I am now a fan of your blog, I now hope to be mentioned in many a future posting. Happy Birthday Mrs Bootleg. (I was nice enough to NOT post the number... you owe me)
That's not glare, Anonymous, that's the reflection from his halo.(Cam: You get one of those every 1,000 posts. Enjoy it.)(Also, Cam: Congratulations, and thanks! Love your work.)
acct sean stole my "sounds like your being held hostage" style of your video. The only thing missing was you holding up a recent newspaper and you blinking morse code.
Nice to hear that soft, nearly girlish voice giving thanks. Congratulations!I take it 1:31 was when the right cross from Mrs. Bootleg struck your jaw?
You guys! I'll try'n keep this brief:@Canuck: My voice was LOT more radio-friendly before my one-man asthma wars.@Elena: It's actually 10% glare and 90% "flop sweat" residue.@Friend o' Mrs. Bootleg: Oh, girlfriend. I've been using assorted codes to write about the wife's friends for years. Depending on who this is, "blazing hotness" could be you.@Anonymous: You should see my wedding video. Glare's so bad off my forehead that I look like a well-dressed bat-signal.@Sean: Oh, they're holding me hostage, all right.@Jon: Can I borrow whatever braids you're NOT wearing this weekend to cover up my forehead?(Seriously, though, thanks everyone!)
Here's to a thousand more, Cam. And the end with the list of things to come reminded me of the Simpsons clip show that ended with the song "Sorry for the clip show" and has "Marge becomes a robot".
Ladies and Gentlemen, the mayor of Sacramento! A glass of Maker's Mark in the air for you my good man.
You sound kind of like you're telling a scary ghost story to your little sister, but don't want to get caught by your parents....Congrats and thanks for all the free laffs!
"Mayor of Sacramento"! Unbelievably well played, Mark!
You didn't try to give away Jalen? I'm surprised.Also, I'm still waiting for the debut of our lightly read "records reconsidered" feature or whatever the hell we were going to call this.
Been a while since I left anything on here Cam, but I'm still never missing a post. Keep it going. Was nice to finally hear what you sound like!You still got any Canadian trips planned?
Really, really want to get back up there. It's been an uncertain last few months on the job security front, though. Hoping to make it happen before Jalen's old enough to join us drinking.
Long live the Goodness! Congratulations on the milestone, Boot!
I'm a little late to the party but I wanted to say CONGRATS! And the NFL picks are my favorite part of the football season (except when the Cardinals go to the Super Bowl, and I'm sure that won't be happening any time soon again). In fact, I was just sending bad vibes to Joe for not posting them, and I KNEW you would come through for me!
