I have way too much crap to do today, of a boring/organizational nature and would like a Stoney!Bot to handle appointment making/errand running, etc. Thanks.

But what would I do with this free time, you might be asking. (Okay, no one is asking that, but indulge me.) I would join a circus. Even though my greatest fear is a Carny, I would love to be in a circus as a trapeze artist.

...and yes, I just used my large yoga ball to try and do a rolling handstand. *G* (And yes, I fell off. But I got back up and tried again and DID IT.) Next stop: Barnum and Bailey! Except for how it's really the post office, then the grocery store. SIIIIIIGH.

This post brought to you by this article in the paper, and my desire to do ANYTHING ELSE than be responsible.







Okay, seriously. That last one is so awesome.

Spirit name. Unhuh. Other than that, sounds very cool.

Hahahaha, I know, right? In his defense, he was raised by Carnies, so it's lucky he can speak and has all of his limbs. :D

(And how much FUN would that class be? Aside from all the falling, of course...)

I saw this (http://www.clickondetroit.com/news/15009225/detail.html) this morning, and wondered if you'd seen it. She's denying everything now? Geez. But at least they're looking to prosecute her. . .

What a surprise that she's no denying any knowledge. Prosecution will do that to a person.

If I tried that form of excersize, I would fall off the ball which would then proceed to roll across my body, squashing me to death.

We were totally separated at birth! When I was a kid, I wanted to be a trapeze artist when I grew up. Fly, little girl, fly!

Like, I want to just play on one, you know? But really, I wanna clap my hands and bark "HEP!" and swoop into someone's hands, then swoop back (doing that effortless looking twist) and grab my bar, then land on the platform and hear "Ta Da!"

:D

I think you should do rolling handstands at the post office and the grocery store! Just imagine how short the lines would get... ;)

I even have some Kazakstan circus music on my iPod...

EXCELLENT PLAN, MADAM! :D

Bronson Pinchot in a leotard! I haven't thought of "Circus of the Stars" in a bazillion years.

And he was surprisingly good, too! Balky! Balky Bartokamous! Hahaha.

I really wish they'd bring those reality shows back instead of the crappy ones now. How awesome would it be to see the cast of The Sopranos and The Office throwing knives and walking tightropes? (And literally, not metaphorically? HAHAHA.)

Um... I just got a fic idea for The Office. \o/

I was all like, is that Balky?

And then I was all, like, totally!

I want to read this Office fic. Dwight's going to want to throw real knives, isn't he? And then there's a scene where he's at the beat farm where Mose is dressed in a leotard in the barn, strapped spread eagle to a revolving wheel while Dwight throws knives, blindfolded. Because of course it would be important for Dwight to be able to do this, as a man.

Dude, that is all going in there NOW! I love it!

Stupid writer's strike keeping me from seeing The Office... (And hahahaha to your icon. I get it now!)

ILUMAREN.

So when we will be getting our own personal robots?

I can't wait!
Because I am a princess and should never have to get my hands dirty.

Jodie Foster, Gary Busey, and Robbie Robertson filmed the movie "Carny" largely in my home town. A friend of mine from high school won a rabbit a the local fair. The next night he decided to take it back and I went with him. That's the only time I've seen someone out-talk a carny...

Hahaha, that's impressive! Also: Gary Busey! Heeee.

I just remembered that in the movie Busey played a clown sitting above a dunking tank who shouted insults at people trying to get them to buy chances to knock him in the water. He was scary as hell.

Hahaha, Carnies. Oh how I love those crazy bastards. (Remember the chick who was hitting on the Carny at the State Fair? Hahahaha, wonder if he knocked her up with a mini!Carny?)

Dude, trapeze artists are seriously the most awesome people on this planet. The circus used to always come to town right around my birthday (I always said it was FOR my birthday but whatevs) and the trapeze was always my favorite favorite part.

Let's run away and join the circus when you come, cool?

Are You Actually

Reading this? I'm just curious. Because that's really detail-oriented of you. Feel free to stop reading. But you can see that there's more here, so are you going to keep reading? Really? That's pretty dedicated. I'm impressed. No, really. I'm not being sarcastic, why do you get like that? See, this is the problem I have with your mother - yes. YES. I'm going there. It's time we put all of our cards on the table.

I love you, why are you doing this? After all we've been through? You don't have to be like this. You know, still reading. You could be baking a pie. And then sharing it with me.
