Brad is... anything but average

The latest edition of the internet game called Brad is:

We all know that Brad is on Larry King Live tonight at 9 pm (EST).
No one told me! I'll have to buy a new suit.

I really don't get where Brad is coming from here.
What's to get?

Brad is right.
This is true.

Brad is awesome!!

Brad is on his way to winning a Pulitzer Prize.
It must be for my book on Gorilla Etiquette When Dealing With Stuffy-Headed Schoolteachers.

So Brad is doing God's will, after all.
I shudder to think what that might mean.

How do you know what Brad is thinking?
You don't.

Brad is nothing more than an attention seeking, self indulgent home wrecker.
Who spilled the beans?

Brad is worth every penny.
But not the nickles and dimes. O, you fickle, fickle public.

Brad is anything but average.
I am a superior creature.

This is probably really the last post

Yeah, I've threatened many a time to quit posting. But now I really will. The truth is that my time and energies are focused elsewhere. No, I've not been creating banana shoes or threatening to take over Santa Claus' job, but I'm trying to be the webmaster for my Landlady's storytelling website. She needs all the help she can get. For some reason, she doesn't want me to manage her storytelling business. I don't see why not. Mayor Monkey manages Recess Monkey perfectly well.

Brad Interview

Finally, I've been interviewed!

Here is the interview.

It's about time. Maybe I'll even start blogging again. I need more fans, though. Many, many more fans. I am power, fame and fortune hungry.

Updated Note

For anyone coming over here from my Landlady's interview, looking for fresh new blog posts to read: forget it. I'm busy sulking. Where is my interview she promised me? Read my "Best Bits" over on the sidebar instead.

I'm furious. Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast has asked my Landlady for an interview as part of their blogger interview series and they didn't ask me. What nerve! Never mind that she blogs more than I do. I'm a gorilla. What other gorilla blogs? I'm insulted, flummoxed, and all in a tizzy. I'm going to throw something...

Oh, good. My Landlady told me that she would interview me for her blog. That's much, much better.

Baby gorillas and the Wind in the Willows

Lady K has threatened to take my Christmas ornament down if I don't post something. Fine. However, if she does that, I'm taking her Christmas ornament down. Hah! That'll learn her! I know Puddingface is going to take me to task for the grammar. I'll kindly direct him toward The Wind in the Willows:

The Toad, having finished his breakfast, picked up a stout stick and swung it vigorously, belabouring imaginary animals. 'I'll learn ’em to steal my house!' he cried. 'I'll learn ’em, I'll learn ’em!'

'Don't say "learn ’em," Toad,' said the Rat, greatly shocked. 'It's not good English.'

'What are you always nagging at Toad for?' inquired the Badger, rather peevishly. 'What's the matter with his English? It's the same what I use myself, and if it's good enough for me, it ought to be good enough for you!'

'I'm very sorry,' said the Rat humbly. 'Only I think it ought to be "teach ’em," not "learn ’em."'

'But we don't want to teach 'em,' replied the Badger. 'We want to learn ’em--learn ’em, learn ’em! And what's more, we're going to do it, too!'

'Oh, very well, have it your own way,' said the Rat. He was getting rather muddled about it himself, and presently he retired into a corner, where he could be heard muttering, 'Learn ’em, teach ’em, teach ’em, learn ’em!' till the Badger told him rather sharply to leave off.

Yah! That'll learn Mr Pudding, too.

For you, Lady K, here are photos of cute little baby gorillas. I know you like that sort of thing:

Ate Things

My Landlady tagged me for the 8 facts meme, so here goes...

Here are the rules: Each player lists 8 facts/habits about themselves. The rules of the game are posted at the beginning before those facts/habits are listed. At the end of the post, the player then tags 8 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know that they have been tagged and asking them to read your blog.

I: I have taken numerous tests to get my driver's license and have failed all of them. I thought my driving was perfect, but the evaluator thought it was cheating to lift the car into the parallel parking space.

II: My top secret project exploded, and I have had to start from scratch. I am so bitter about this setback that I'm tempted to run off with the grant money.

III: I once met Elvis in Las Vegas, Nevada. He shook my hand and told me that I was his favorite Elvis impersonator after Andy Kaufman.

IV: The above fact is actually fiction. So much for wishful thinking.

V: I have bested Yorkshire Pudding in every thumb-wrestling match, though he refuses to admit it.

VI: When it comes to diagramming sentences, I'm hopeless. This blind-spot was a glitch in my Latin education.

VII: I used to charge money for foot-rubs.

VIII: I'm in love.

I tag Friday, Lady K, Yorkshire Pudding, and anyone else who still reads my blog.

Read the archives!

I'm busy.

I'm working on a super-secret project to be revealed some day soon. It will change the way you live. It will change the way you eat. Yea, it will change the way you tie your shoes.

Edit: I am disabling comments for this post because some schmo named "Alex" keeps spamming me.

Honk if You Speak Latin

Good morning, faithful readers. I have been quite busy in the past month. After the Latin professor at Mid-Central Community College accidentally slipped and cut himself on a butterknife, the dean called a number of people to substitute for the professor. When those people did not respond, the dean called me. I accepted. I am pleased to say that my students are learning Latin in ways they have never experienced before. The other day, we took a field trip around Seattle in order to bring Latin to the masses. That's right, we became Latin graffiti artists for the day! I'd read in the comments of Yorkshire Pudding's blog that Latin graffiti was a valid form of artistic expression, so I was sure that our efforts would be viewed in a proper historical context (whatever that means). We decided that our key phrase would be "Honk if you speak Latin"... in Latin! Here's what we accomplished before the cops arrived:

Space Needle

Fremont Troll

I was let out of jail this morning. Before I left, I made sure that history would remember me:

Monday morning, I need to go to Mid-Central Community College to see if I still have a job. Wish me luck! Ho ho.

Brad is... Back

Behold the latest installment of Brad is...:

Brad is being so protective.

When chocolate and bananas are involved, of course I'm protective. If your brand-new sportscar is involved, then I'm a bit more lackadasical.

Brad Is Dead –

No, I'm not.

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

This piece gives me the SHIVERS.

What B.R.A.D. Is Doing!

Bringing Ripe Aardvarks Doughnuts

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

Weitzman is Yorkshire Pudding's real name.

Brad is why I believe in weblogs

Aw, shucks.

Either Brad is VERY desperate or he has gone completely bonkers

Bonkers. Definitely bonkers.

Brad is a gentleman

No, I'm not. I'm a gorilla.

Brad is supported by the best cheering section in the world

Note sidebar.

Brad is coming in a newsstand near you, once the Art Issue of 'Vanity Fair' comes out.

You won't want to miss it. I bare my hairy chest for the whole world to admire.

Someone wrote Brad is a character actor stuck in a leading man's body.


Brad is AFK because he plays games too much

I've been AFK because I've been uninspired. Also, Ulric now has a girlfriend and we don't get to hang out as much as we used to.

The Great Gorilla Suit Day Has Arrived!

Happy International Gorilla Suit Day! As promised, I shall post a photo of me on the one day of the year that I wear a human suit:

Thank you very much.

National Gorilla Suit Day: January 31st

Get ready for National Gorilla Suit Day. For those who reside outside of the USA, it's International Gorilla Suit Day. This is a convenient measure for my Canadian, Mexican and overseas readers, of whom there are plenty. January 31st is the one day of the year when I wear the human suit I've had hanging up in the closet. Stay tuned for photos.

On My Way

I left Japan a few days ago and jaunted down to Indonesia before heading over to Hawai'i. Now I think I may skedaddle from Hawai'i as well because of the tsunami warning. Honestly, there is no safe place anywhere. I wish I were in hibernation around now.

Saturday, January 06, 2007

Greetings from Japan!

Finally, all the Pocky a gorilla could want... for the next half-hour.

I'm a sushi sous-chef. (Okay, so I sweep the floors.)
