Pinky Juneadaro

Let's begin with the obvious: I am not cool. At all. If on one end you've got Pinky Tuscadero, I am at the opposite end of that spectrum.

And no, I do NOT think Leather Tuscadero was cooler. Anyone who has to come up with a gimmicky greeting like slapping your leg twice and making a gun out of your finger is intrinsically not cool. And why did we have Leather, anyway? You're telling me the actress who played Pinky was too busy to come back to Happy Days, the biggest hit of the time? Have you seen Pinky Tuscadero in anything else since she appeared on that show?

So, back to the part where I'm not cool. For example, the part where I am suddenly in the running to be voted Funniest Blogger. Now, if I were actually cool, I would not have told you about it yesterday. Also too, I would not have spent 92 hours figuring out how to get a button on my right-side column. And I certainly wouldn't KEEP mentioning this contest.

But you know those people who don't tell you it's their birthday, and you somehow find out three days later, and you're all, "Why didn't you tell me it was your birthday Thursday?" and they just look down and say, "Oh, you know…"

Yeah. I'm not one of those people. I tend to dump fliers out of an airplane the week before my birthday. So what I'm saying is, you are going to HATE me until this stupid contest is done on July 6.

What if I just close with "Remember to vote for me for funniest blogger" at the end of every post? Is that tasteful enough? And what if I call you personally each day until July 6 to remind you to get out the vote? What if I come over?

You see, there? See how I take it too far? I am a lot like Tallulah when she sees a rabbit. If she'd just play it cool, maybe she'd get one. But the shaking all over and whining and pulling me till I'm like a kite flying behind her on her leash? It never, ever works for her. She ain't never caught a rabbit. She ain't no friend of mine.

Not only am I gonna be annoying till July 6, I will also be not funny. Because now the pressure's on. I have this thing that happens to me. If someone introduces me, and they say, "This is my friend June. She's really funny." Do you know what the introducee gets? They get Old Stone Face.

Stoneface 
Seriously. If someone introduces me as funny, I become completely unfunny for the rest of the night. So now I am up to win an award saying this blog is funny? Oh, helllll, no. This is gonna be the most somber place you visit until that contest is over. You want to come here for quiet contemplation and maybe a few tears? This blog is your unfunny destination.

So I'm just warning you now. But hey, won't you click on the red button at right and vote for me for funniest blog? You can vote every day.

Franhen You know you're charming when you manage to get even our crankiest household member to like you. Hey, this is snuggling, for Francis.

  1. Try to forget about the contest. Put it out of your mind and let the funny come in.
    And if you want to remind me you can either call or come over. I would prefer for you to call before you come over just because of the OCD and not wanting anyone to come over unless the house is *clean*. But either way, call and come over.

  2. Two thoughts (it’s Sunday evening and I only have two thoughts left and, lucky you, you get them both):
    First, you need to take a page from the Obama playbook. Even after the election, that campaign never let up. I still get multiple emails every ding dang day from those folks, with links to Youtube videos, pleas for money, and directions to “house parties” (!) where we can all sit around and gripe about health insurance (or the lack or cost thereof).
    So, be relentless! And you, too, can be President of the United States. Or World’s Funniest Blogger. Or something.
    Second, even if Tallulah plays it cool, she’ll never get those wascally wabbits. My dog-before-this-dog used to tip-toe up behind them — you could hear the Pink Panther theme in the background — and they’d let him get 6 inches away. And he still couldn’t catch them. He eventually gave up (or lost interest, or pretended to), and I’d find them all — dog and wabbits — out in the yard, taking naps together.

  3. I never liked Pinky Tuskadero. I think it was her red hair clashing with her pink jacket. Henry is the cutest kitten I have ever seen, but I am come to your blog for the funny. Just went and voted.

  4. Burlap Tuscadero. She was the tough one in that family.
    Carpoolqueen may not need to be reminded but some of us with smaller brain capacities do. So daily reminders would be handy. Or I’ll just have CPQ remind me after she finishes her daily stalk.

  8. I got a really bad haircut in November and I LOOKED like Leather Tuscadaro.
    Suzy Quatro wasn’t that her name? Suzy Quatro? Suzy Four? (I should really check this out before I post it. I could be just being a real boneous headus right now). Didn’t she have a record? I bet Marvin would know.
    Your glasses do look sparkling clean. Kisses for Henry.

  10. I want to know if we get a cookie and glass of juice for voting. Oh wait. That is when we donate blood. I vote twice daily as I have two email addresses. Your blog is my first stop every morning, even before CNN or CTV news. Priorities, you know.

  11. Do you still have your Christmas decoration out? Your face is sooooo thin, I hate you! I’ve voted twice, but unless I use all 14 of my e-mail addresses one vote a day is all that is permitted. I see the little ole kitty is a bit more tolerant of the Sir Henry. Love the photos of the cats. Have you read “Dewey”? It was a good book, but being the owner of a 15 year old cat, it made me really depressed for a couple of days, to the point of tears.

  12. Awe jeez, I had a big long comment all prepared in my head, then I had to go google Pinkie Tuscadaro and got all kinds of side tracked in the 1970’s and have lost my train of thought. Why is it a train of thought and not, say, a bus of thought?

  13. The SAME thing happens to me. I’m known as the “funny” friend but it puts pressure on me when I’m “announced” that way. Good luck on your nomination. I just won a The Funniest Blog Contest last month. These contests are just everywhere in the blogosphere huh? I guess it depends on which circle you’re rotating around! LOL.
    Good luck!!
