"Brad is" Your Gorilla of Choice

In the spirit of my first blog post, I have decided to revisit the "Brad is" meme. This time, I have appended annotations.

Brad Is....

1) Brad is a chameleon.

No I’m not. I’m a gorilla. What gives?

2) Angelina can’t wipe the smile from her face and Brad is being so protective.

The only Angelina I know is a Young Adult librarian. (Click on the link and scroll down to the third entry of the featured speakers.) She’s probably smiling because of my impassioned speeches about the importance of the microfilm machine in archiving pre-nineteenth century graphic-novels.

3) Brad is quite the procrastinator.

Ho ho. I’m thinking about starting a club for procrastinators.

4) Brad is taking the kids to a daycare.

Not yet. My Landlady has hidden the keys to the car and installed an “anti-hot-wire” device. I’ll foil her no-fun machinations yet, when I get around to it.

5) Brad is tired of thinking about himself.


6) Brad is much smarter than Weitzman and he did see this sixteen years ago.

This is true. Weitzman has nothing on me, and I have plenty on Weitzman.

7) Brad is a really nice guy, but he's not too happy about this area.

False. I am not a really nice guy, and I am happy about this area.

8) Brad is well-known to regulars in the skinning and customization community.

The “skinning” part gives me the shivers. Fortunately, it refers to the “skins” of web designs and not Mr Pudding’s empty threats to turn me into a rug. I'll get you yet, Mr Pudding!

9) The Brad is back.

Sure. At least, until I go on tour again.

10) Brad is famous, well known, well liked.

True, all true! Though I don’t quite understand the “well liked” part. As you know, I am a veritable arsenal of insults and rude words.

Wow! What changes. Very gruff yet fanciful.

I actually looked up your first post just the other day because I had a feeling your blogoversary was coming up.

I'm glad your back, now don't go on tour for awhile K?

Why did you choose a brown background for your re-designed blog? Do you support the Cleveland Browns or are you partial to brownies? Do you like brown-nosing? Brown is not a bad colour, it's the colour of soil and oh yes that other stuff, often left behind in jungle nest sites by departing mountain gorillas.

Nonny:I'm taking a break from touring. It's hard on the liver and kidneys.

Mr Pudding: Brown is the color of chocolate pudding. Brown is the color of the Landlord's daughter's eyes. Brown is the color of good, rich dirt. Brown is the color of my fur.

Oops, that was me. But I think I'll keep posting as "anonymous" so that you keep coming up with funky names.
