I can't live up to your expectations all of the time. Sometimes I'm going drink six miniature bottles of rum and then draw horses.

Anyway, guy, I drew you a picture: . . . It's mostly scribbles with a few dots. I felt like that you needed to have your expectations lowered. I thought about adding some blue, but then I thought "fuck that guy. He doesn't deserve blue. I'm not putting any in there.

Haha. Then he better stay the fuck away from MeFi.


UPDATE: But then I made a drawing with a whole lot of blue for the rest of you. Just for contrast.


Drawing follows. For the whole post.

I like it when humans don't pretend to be otherwise.

Drunk blogging, twittering, or emailing is almost always a bad idea. I know from experience. It does not enhance the text.

But Allie's still cool.

Who the hell puts miniature bottles of rum in the piƱata?

And why the hell couldn't their kids have been friends with my kids?

Anarch, I thought that was some commentary about how this is what worker controlled business looks like, and that this is what we get out of it, some blogger getting drunk and drawing horses. I like to pretend.

Is she really that noteworthy that we need to have all of her posts on the front page?

i stumbled onto her blog a while back. i went to the beginning and started reading.

she's not always superawesomefunny, but damn, a lot of her stuff has some really really funny bits that have me trying really hard to not laugh out loud at work.

her drawings crack me up. that most recent cake one was absolutely hysterical.
also the one about how she had to have oral surgery as a kid and really wanted to go a birthday party afterward but was all drugged up on meds was very very funny. if only because i've now had oral surgery and can only imagine what it must be like to be 8 or 10 and be on those crazy pain meds when you come out of it.. hilarity would indeed ensue!

You're reading the wrong blogs, tweets, or e-mail.

Didn't we already agree not to re-syndicate this (great) blog here?

I rather like it as a response to the paralysis that sets in when one tries to make something entertaining, but then, I WOULD
I FUCKING WOULD

I like to call it the "That is So Fucking Stupid" hump. Since I have no ability to judge my own work, I'll get an idea, start doing it and then halfway through go "This is So Fucking Stupid." and drop it.

I do this like 4 times a day.

I AM MORTAL AND I AM GOING TO DIE.

It makes me feel better about my own neuroses when I learn artists I admire suffer the same difficulties, insecurities, and setbacks that I do.

It doesn't make me any less neurotic, though.

oh my god is this comment good enough should I even bother to post it oh god everyone's looking at me

I did my sworn duty. FIAMO. Really? 4 FPPs in a year? 2 this month?

The word "parp" has permanently entered my vocabulary as a sort of expression of vague excitement, and can be used as a sort of demand, question, or generic yet definitive answer to questions. I have been using it about a hundred times a day since the dentist post and it has come to the point where its meaning is fairly clear in context among my friends, and they are able to use it appropriately with me as well.

Those who have not seen Brosh's blog look on with much confusion. The only answer they ever get out of us, though, is "parp!"

Allie Brosh is queen of all of the internets and should always be in the first 13 posts on MeFi. PARP!

I would just like to say that I also use "parp!" (and "Moum, I can DO IT! I CAN DO IT!") at least three or four times a day to express confused elation. My boyfriend texts me "parp" when he feels I need encouragement at work. I'm so glad to know it's really entering the language.

People aren't posting her content because they think "she" is "noteworthy."

I want a boyfriend who texts me parp. Humph.
