the Change I Wish to See

...and whatever else it takes to find my pants

--
Edit: It's official. I'm moving to WordPress. I have no idea why a Google-uploaded video won't embed on a Google-backed blog. So it's over Blogger. We are now in the "you want the house, I just want to be free, just send me the divorce papers, I've started singing Gloria Gaynor songs" phase. And so if the first video below doesn't load, search Google video for "f.B lost his pants" or go here.  Sorry about that.

So here goes...

As a reclusive blogger, I was so unbelievably nervous doing this that I decided I should spruce up the ol' mouth and pop in a breath mint.  Not only is that a useless idea -- because you're an entire interweb away from me -- but it's also a horrible idea to eat a mint while talking into a camera.  Horrible.  The mint was lip-smackingly delicious.  And therein lies the rub: a video interspersed with me trying not to drool breath mint juice and saliva onto myself.

With that..
  

  
  
I couldn't find that allergy commercial.  But you couldn't possibly want anymore video content in this post anyway, right?
     
Ok.
     
Because I care:

me = even sadder. I think I found a way to work around that.

This is great! Now when I read your posts I can hear it in your voice and I can picture that shirt which is a little trippy on my computer screen. Just coffee this morning...I swear.

What a cutie you are!

Although I sensed your delightfully fresh breath across the interwebs, I'm with ya--> next time, no mint.

Beamer said...

nice to meet you, Brad. I'm with you on the over analyzing posts. My last one took at least a week.

btw that song took me back to the WPGC I loved growing up. I never get tired of that.

Your VLOG cracked me up. I loved watching it.

sara: wardrobe malfunction? damn. i knew i should've changed into something less trippy after work.

la: classic rookie mistake.

beamer: there's just something about "final edit" i don't understand. so as you can imagine, the vlog was a disaster for my nerves.

raych: welcomes, welcomes. and i had to do it. just had to.

deutlich: i'm so, purely, glad. i was worried it would suck. and then it wouldn't embed.. nightmare.

Patti Ann said...

i read posts on fridays!

f.B said...

lipstick: welcomes. you couldn't hear? sorry about that. Google and I had a conference call and we're trying to get all the errors taken care of.

patti ann: and i'm glad you did. well, i'm still anxious about my whole face being out there, especially with me slurping on a mint, but hopefully i'll get past that

Katie said...

I can't believe you actually worked "heat-packing district" into that. Okay, wait, of course I can. I'm sure you can picture me shaking my head. Btw, if we're more compatible today, it's probably cause I typed this on a macbook.

Wordpress rawks - though I have never tried to load video - come on over.

mieletcannelle said...

So I guess everyone reads posts on Fridays hey? ;-) Love it, now I have a voice in my head when I read your posts. I'm too scared to do the vlog...

f.B said...

katie: mc'books for everybody!

refugee: it's just time. it's just time.

miel: you know what? i'm still too scared. "never" is a dangerous word, but i'll be surprised if it happens again

Hello, first time reader/commenter. I LOVE your first paragraph, about the just wanting freedom and singing Gloria Gaynor songs.

And purple Now & Laters FTW!!! That used to be my favorite snack as a kid.

f.B said...

longredcape: welcomes. Blogger and i just don't talk the way we used to. and so i think it's time we went our own ways before it gets ugly
