Today I will be conducting an experiment in karma and SEO strategy. Or, since I am one of the Merry Band of Pranksters, a prank. Read how Aunt Becky is the George Clooney of practical jokes of The Internet. (Read it now, people, before you go any further or this is post won’t make any sense ). (Thank you). (Don’t worry, I’ll wait for you). (Done)? (Great, now let’s get started). (And quality of writing is forsaken for the short time I have to write this).
Kathleen Mary Griffin is my Target. Please read her wikipedia page. Kathleen M. Griffin and I have a history. I thought she was awesome since the first time I saw her doing her Play That Funky Music White Boy commercial. Pure genius! I remember seeing her do her standup routines on HBO when I was just a wee lass (Did I mention that Kathllen M. Griffin is Irish)? She was also hilarious in Suddenly Susan with Brooke Sheilds. She was also in the Eminem Real Slim Shady video and one of my all time favorite movies, Pulp Fiction.
I have been a fan of Kathleen M. Griffin for a long, long time. So imagine my sheer delight when she began her own show on Bravo TV Network called My Life on the D-List. My Life on the D-List debuted around the time Marie was born. Kathleen M. Griffin offered the kind of comic relief that I so badly needed. Andy at Bravo TV Network, you are a genius to give Kathleen M. Griffin her own show. You must never cancel her show My Life on the D-list. Ever. Kathleen M. Griffin is so incredibley smart, and I love how she brings causes to the forefront all while using her gift of humor.
And seeing her live did not disappoint. Going to see Kathleen M. Griffin was the first real outing I had with The Hubs after Marie was born. I was a nervous wreck leaving her for the first time. I had no idea what to wear because I was still mostly in maternity get-up. I think the name of that tour was called Going Straight to Hell. I also saw her for my birthday when she toured with Cut a Bitch. Harrington came up with that idea as I was puking my guts out in the hospital with serious morning sickenss. Great idea, Harrington! And then for the following birthday, I got her new autobiography Official Book Club Selection. Hard cover. Yes, that’s how much I love Kathleen M. Griffin.
|I *heart* Kathleen M. Griffin and The Offical Book Club Selecion!|
Kathleen M. Griffin, you have been a part of some very special moments in my life. You have taught me what it takes to be a Strong Black Woman. You have made a difference in my life because you made me laugh when all I wanted to do was cry a river of postpardum tears. Or throw up due to pregnancy hormones. Thank you.
And, Kathleen M. Griffin, if you are reading this, I know just how badly this post is written. It does not do your level of comedic genius any justice. Please feel free to click around at any other post for a better sample of my writing. And please send my best to Tiffany Rinehart, Maggie Griffin, Tom Vize.
Now excuse me while I go TIP IT!!
