I had no intention of posting anything today. I've got so much on my to-do list, I need a month of Sundays to check off all of them. But before putting on my running shoes, I decided to check my email and found a note from my friend, Mike Birbiglia there. OK, so he's not really my REEEAL friend. He's my all-time favorite comedian. I subscribe to his blog that is called My Secret Public Journal. Birbigs, he lets me call him that because we are like "THIS" (insert index and middle finger crossed), is one of those guys you just can't help but love.
I'm always trying to convert my family and friends to be Birbigs fans too. I'll ask them to watch when he is scheduled for an interview. The funny thing is that he NEVER comes off in an interview as funny as he really is. He even talks in his show about how someone in a blog (not me) called him pudgy and awkward. Now I'm no pot to be calling a kettle pudgy but DANG if he isn't awkward. And that's one of the things I love most about him.
But I digress.......I open the email and he has a clip from his recent visit to the Bonnie Hunt show. OK, he's still a little awkward in the beginning but then he shines in true Birbigs fashion. This is a guy whose CD you can take on a roadtrip with your kids. He is hilarious. I love him. Watch and see. And if you don't like him, don't tell me. It will hurt my feelings because Mike and I, well..............we're like "THIS"!
