Today’s Music: Crazy Alanis Morrisette. a note on today’s music; no notes today.
Let’s go folks take 567 for Idiotic Foolishness All day Long…
Quiet ..Cue the cheesy music… again annnnd
WAIT!! It’s just Idiotic Foolishness now..
Yea Yea whatever you are just procrastinating
Hey! I resemble that remark…
And so goes the dialogue – or is it still a monologue when you play the other characters too?
Anyways I will stick with dialogue for now, let’s try to keep this thing going..
So goes the dialogue in my head all day and yesterday and occasionally over the last few months. The only thing that changes is the number. Oh and the title a time or five but its close enough.
Oh yes folks, I have worked on this for months trying to write words worthy of a man who is just some guy on the internet.
I giggle every time I say that about him. It’s such an understatement.
Well that’s what is funny about it but I am sure those of you who know him or even of him have heard that phrase or something very much like it, straight from him as a way to deflect the enormous amounts of accolades and gratitude and other good things he gets – deservedly too – because it is just what he does and who he is.
It is his nature. Remember the Scorpion and the Frog? Guap is neither. So enough of that.
It is his birthday today – if anyone missed that part. I mean this is the first time I have mentioned it but.. I know never assume. Which is why I just added this little blurb – today is El Guapo’s birthday and yes I do think he is not maybe older than me ? In my head he is anyways – like a big brother, kinda really and not really – (figure that one out 🙂 )
but… (da da da duuummmmm) yes folks we all know what that is (if you don’t is the dramatic intro music that usually accompanies something big exciting dramatic important or any synonyms of same… here on Running Naked With Scissors)
Ode to the King of the Foolishness…
do you think tribute would work better? tribute to the King..
oh ..never mind.
you can never ode too much.
Ode to ye King of Foolishness, the Great and Benevolent Master of the Poll, RingMaster
of Friday’s Funhouse Circus and Daily DJ …
or as I affectionately call him..Guap, Guapman, the Guapinator, The Dude (who abides) Captain Authority and most importantly, my friend.
You may think big deal, how hard can that be? How sweet of you thanks 🙂 but I assure you I am more than a handful and never a dull moment.
He is unflappable. No its true. as if being a friend to someone who you never know where they are going to come from on any given day isn;t enough, I have actually put effort into flapping.. he hasn’t budged. Unflappable.
He signed up for Team Lizzie before Team Lizzie was around.
Talked me out of a tree.
Gets me laughing almost always when I am in the dumps
Checks on me when I am down
Checks on me and goes along with my silly ideas when I am up
Helps chase away the midgets
He plays along with all my silly little reindeer games here in blogland without complaint. Remember the Laundry Soap?
Tolerates Veggie Tales and Monkey tales too
Discusses shoes and other things
Cheers on whatever my endeavors are
Sounding board for crap that bugs me or goes against what I stand for
Masterminded the most Epic Birthday and biggest surprise EVER for my birthday
Lets me flirt with TMWGITU a little
Gets righteously annoyed maybe even irked when someone hurts me
Helped me pick out a new computer
Lets me lament the men in my life and laments with me
Advocates for the mentally ill, the underdogs and for all people really. Except bozos.
I could go on and on, really and I am sure it is no surprise that he is that kind of friend. I could have come here today and said all the things we all know – he is a great writer, engaging, friendly, funny smart as hell, and gosh darn it…people like him. You know all that right?
Yea and I wanted you all to know that Guap, Guapman, The Dude, My Friend, is a really great guy beyond the blogosphere, transcends typical anything. And I wanted him to know that I know all that he has done, being my friend and never once failing me. He has taught me many things and listened to my many things and never once made me feel foolish or idiotic or different or anything but special and worthy.
SO in honor of the Great One’s Birthday, because he deserves to have the best day ever, every year – and because I wanted to do something for him equal to the gifts he has given me with his friendship…
I wrote a limerick.
Ok just kidding, for the moment, but I wrote a letter. I had this big grand plan and it flopped. I mean it is a grand plan but it requires cooperation from the recipient of the letter and I have not had any. There is still hope, I am optimistic. Probably insane but there it is, or isn’t.
So I wrote a limerick.. or is it Haiku..no no… I know a butter canoe would have been cool too but they always melt once you upload them.. not cool.
Never mind. It can not even come close. So
El Guapo my friend, never question whether you belong for you not only do belong here you are the leader of this merry band of foolish bloggers.
No Silly there are no additional leader duties – would I do that to you?? Ok .. Great so let’s have a poll to decide what your new leader name shall be…
orrrr not. How awkward I could have sworn the poll builder button thingy was over there – and who do I ask when I don’t know? Yea so forget the poll but there are plenty of the silly things around
so vote when you find one – vote early and often but do it before whenever they tell you too. Just saying.
You are the best of us all, just some guy on the internet yea you are some guy alright..you are effing awesome and so totally rock Dude – and its true because I read it on the internet and you just did too 😛
Have a wonderful day, enjoy! never mind that one year older crap – it’s for the birds. Eat lots of cake in moderation, and just have a great birthday. Here is to many more that we are around to share the celebration and no matter what for the rest of my days, you are and forever shall be,
Happy Birthday Guapman. Never stop doing what you do.. you will change the world one day – you already have.

Whoa, holy what a post! Hppy Bday, Guap!
I can’t even at this moment ‘resemble’ whose blog I read that said it was El Guapo’s birthday but I wished him a happy one on his site. He’s lucky to have such friends as you…Diane
and you 🙂
I could be wishing you happy birthday in many different languages, each time I stumble upon a celebration post, but I am not a polyglot, just fluent in Frenglish. Therefore English again will have to suffice… Happy birthday, friend.
Merci Beaucoup, virtual clown of life!

Cross dressing is a must as it links him back to J Edgar Hoover.
