goodbye dignity...

So, I was, uh, interviewed…uh…today. By a reporter…oh god. From ABCnews.com. Which, you know, probably like, 3 people read. Ugh. Shit. And the topic of the article…um, I can’t say it.
Oh god.
Was Gavin’s love life.
I know. I know.
Spots, you’re saying. Don’t be an internet nerd expert.
I know. I know.
Beth, my mom’s saying. You went to college. We PAID for it.
I know. I know.
Elizabeth Anne, my dead ancestors are saying. We expected something less pathetic.
I get it. This isn’t exactly what I aspired to be an expert on. However, throughout the entire conversation, I just pretended that His Excellency could listen in on everything I was saying and thus, spoke accordingly.
Man on the Inside is ready to kill me and my mother thinks I’ll be a national disgrace, but truth be told, relax. Like anyone reads the internet.

Oh god. Gavin, forgive me…*

*HERE IT IS...

This is great! Your blog is funny, irreverant and says what we're all thinking. I love reading it everyday and I think you're a very talented writer. Don't freak out. You're a hit and you deserve it!

You link to nearly everything else you mention in your blog, why not your abc news story?

Spots said...

Well, it won't be up until tomorrow morning. Provided it's not overwhelmingly embarassing, I'll link as soon as I see it...

Spots,

Who is Man on the Inside?

Molly said...

Sorry! I shoulda known. Patience, patience! I can't wait!

Spots said...

MOI is my very good friend who once worked for Gavin. He is glorious and today announced, "You can never show your face in Aqua again."
Fine by me...

i can assure the internet reading population that you were not, "panting." (perhaps mr. reporter misplaced his thesaurus?) you're flawless- and famous!

Great job, Spots! Why don't you email the link to the story to the mayor's office? I guarantee they'll read the story and Gavin will definitely know who you are! That being said, the article doesn't speak too highly of him, though. I agree will the article that he makes bad choices (Kim, Sofia, Brittanie) and still say he's not good enough for you!

Well, well, well... what have we heeeeeaar?! Hate to say it, but I just found your website from abcnews.com. Go figure, guess there are a few more readers than you think? Anyway, I'm glad for it; I've read a couple of your posts and think I'm hooked. I bet I've got a lot of catching up to do, how fun!

Oh, god. I misspelled "here"... embarrassment.

I actually read abcnews.com all the time - I got here through a link - and stayed because I got a kick out of your writing.

I'll be back, for sure!

Yeeeaah. Hate to break it to you but I got here via abcnews.com also. (...akwarrrd.)But really, you ARE-- as everyone else has been saying-- a very talented writer! I love your sense of humor, and you actually hold my attention (weird.). Keep it up!

Gushed? You gushed? Clearly the reporter did not understand the complexity involved here.

Jackson said...

Sorry I'm so late on this train, been out of town, but awesome! I know you would have been my first call for a quote on "Boozy Mountz."

More embarrassing is that the reporter wrote this: "After all, the city's previous mayor, Willie Brown, had a child out of wedlock with one of his aides — and he's still regarded warmly by the San Francisco community." Ummm, sure, if 'the San Francisco community' only included Walter Shorenstein and Don Fisher.
