A Collage of Your Comments



Ever since I started making friends in blogland, I’ve thought about how fun it’d be to meet face-to-face at one big party. I imagine conversations would play out as follows, and what follows are nuggets of your comments in two recent posts: the Prom and Bruce Jenner. Enjoy. (Please excuse the asterisks. This did some funky things when I tried to format it.)

Ruth said..Last week, I saw on the news that the average person spends over $1000 for the prom. Are you freaking kidding me? 

Klahanie said...Right then, time to pose in front of my full-length mirror...who is that awesome dude? Gosh, it's me!    
                                                                                                                                                                                   
        I.B. Nosey said...Looked more like a leftover mannequin in a forgotten department store.
  Tara Grover Smith said..I prefer wrinkles, gentlemen, except for in penises.



    Mencara Mitchellsaid...Kim's butt was never a problem for me. The problem is the other end. When she starts talking, I want to jam metal objects in my ears.

*       
    Debra She Who Seeks said...I regard it as a form of high school bullying.
*       
* A Beer For The Shower said...I went with a girl who said she liked me and wanted to date me. She went to go get a glass of punch and started making out with some random guy. I interrupted them and told her to F off and that I wasn't giving her a ride home. Have fun walking. The guy got mad at that and tried to attack me, so I shoved his head into a wall and gave him a massive concussion.

Al Penwasser said...That's what he gets for buying 'Face Lifts for Dummies' from COSTCO.
*       
Pearl said..Dropped shrimp scampi on my dress.  Didn't really have fun.
*       
David Macaulay said...chortle - oh well. I hear Carrie's was worse.
*       
Stephen Hayes said..Not to make you or anyone else feel bad, but I married my prom date and we've been together for forty years. BloggerLexa Cain said…"You've come a long way, baby!" Yeah, a long way - straight down the crapper for poor old Bruce.
*       
My Journey With Candida said... I wonder if he honestly knows how bad he has made himself look.
*       
  Gorilla Bananas said...His face looks slightly effeminate to me.
*       
Joanne said.. That (because of the rain and my instant frizz) turned into an afro encased in aquanet.
   Pat Tillett said...Granny always said that high school graduation is the great equalizer.
  
  Melissa Bradley said...I would not trade that experience for anything, the dance was a joke, but the company was excellent. 

  
Shah Wharton said...The best justice came late, however. One girl (who was huge at school and got bullied terribly) turned up looking stunning and pronounced she earned a fortune working as a model in France.

Susan Flett Swiderski said...Best lower-the-bar tidbit here is that he only got three reviews in all those years.
*       
*     Just Keepin It Real, Folks! said...Though you would think he could afford a better plastic surgeon.
*       
*      Momma Fargo said...Now...he is just weird.


Pat Hatt said…Has to give him the blues.    Bloggerklahanie said…Oh my, I thought the "Kardashians" were an alien lifeform on Star Trek.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...You have a point!

*       
A Beer For The Shower said...just remember you could look like that and be in the same family as Kim "Functionally Useless In All Ways" Kardashian AND Khloe "Jurassic Park" Kardashian.
*       
*      Cheryl said...Seriously, the most truthful statement ever written farawayeyes said... From THE Mighty Bruce to a Kardashian - oops!
John DeBellis said...100% over hyped.

THE END
Endnote: My apologies if you didn’t see your comment here.  That’s because it was too sensible.

  1. hahaha I think anyone watching on would think we were all on something with such conversations going. But yeah it would be fun to do a blogger meet and greet, although that takes tons of dough.

  2. Pat was close with his comment that Kardashians sounded like aliens on Star Trek. They were actually the Cardassians. And I am an uber-nerd for knowing that.

  3. By the way, wouldn't a party where we all got together be absolutely fantastic?
    Just sayin'...

  4. Sounds like we all got drunk and/or stoned at your big party, eh?

  5. Brandon and Bryan's prom story is the best!

    ReplyDelete
  6. What a fun party...were we all talking at the same time like they do on The View? Was there cake???

    Really, Robyn that was a clever post. It would be great fun to have a get together and meet all the bloggers we interact with online.

  7. Fun to read people's responses.

    ReplyDelete
  8. LMAO. That was fun. Now...in context to what everyone was commenting on..??? It's even better without a post to relate to because the comments themselves are comical. Clever, girl!

    ReplyDelete
  9. Weirdly, that all goes together.
    Yay for being nonsensical!

    ReplyDelete
  10. Pat, I vote for Google funding the shindig. They've got the dough. We keep each other in business, right? Yeah, that'll happen.

    Al, it would be absolutely fantastic, unless we met in Jersey.

    Deb, we did get pretty f*d up. I'd say a great time was had by all.

    Alex, I agree. It's a true story, too!

    Cheryl, haha, we were a lot more well-behaved than the "ladies" (to use the term loosely) on The View, but just as chatty. There was cake, until I started to finger the (chocolate) frosting. Then it was gone in minutes. So sorry.

    Stephen, these great comments keep me energized for blogging. I love my active followers. You're a bunch of silly fun folk.

    MF, thank you. Yeah, some of this stuff is even more hilarious out of context. I love it. I get so much mileage out of a post or two.

    Ruth, in a choppy way, it all flows smoothly. You're all to thank.

    To all of you, thanks for being so silly! I love my readers.

    Cheers,
    xoRobyn

  11. Comments takes out of context are too funny.

    Never thought I would fall into the Sensible Category. I think a section of Hell might be freezing over. hahaha.

    ReplyDelete
  12. I definitely went to the wrong prom.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Loved the way you weaved all these comments together. A good laugh before bed is always good! :)

    ReplyDelete
  14. I've completely forgotten who I made my comment about, but I suppose it could refer to a lot of men. Is it even an insult in this day and age?

    ReplyDelete
  15. What a great idea! They fitted together brilliantly.

    ReplyDelete
  16. This is an amazing idea Robyn and it actually worked haha, really fitted well, great job!

    ReplyDelete
  17. What a creative and fun idea!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Hahahahaa Great post Robin. Funny how it all kind of fits together.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Oh how did I know that prom story comment would be there?

    This is magnificent. It fits together well, and that Face Lifts for Dummies line kills me.

    ReplyDelete
  20. What a great idea, Robyn! Now I'm going to have to go back and see those posts! And I may use this comment idea in the future. I don't get too many funny comments, though. Not unless I'm making them. :)

  21. I love this party!

    Now where did I set my drink...

  22. Excellent job of creating 'cocktail party chatter'. Now there's an idea whose time has come. One big gigantic Blogger Party.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh yes, I'd love to meet all the bloggers I follow.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Robin, if it helps any, it makes no sense how I determine what's nonsensical.

    LD, good one!

    Joanna and Yvonne, thank you. It was fun.

    GB, it's about Bruce Jenner. You could've said worse and you'd have still been accurate.

    Suzanne and Yeamie, thank you. I'm glad it somehow weirdly worked out.

    John, and right you should.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Julie, thank you. It took hours but it was worth it.

    MyJourney, I'm glad you like it. Any group creation is bound to be good or at least extremely silly.

    BnB, that one deserves its own book. And Al is the best, full of non-stop humor. I hope you're following each other. Let me introduce you if not. See the guy passed out by the keg, whose wife is shouting at him to get up already? That's Al Penwasser.

    Mike, you're a sweetie and always put a smile on my face. Thank you.

    Pearl, oh no. I thought that was my Pepsi. No wonder I'm feeling so lighthea...

    Farawayeyes and Vanessa, wouldn't that be fantastic?

    Happy Friday.
    Hugs and chocolate on the house.

  26. Hi Robyn,

    So very thoughtful of you to share the musings of what are, no doubt, the blogging elite. Yep, the finest selection, along with your good self, of the zaniest and somewhat philosophical folks.

    To include me, yes me, shy, humble and unassuming me, amongst such an all-star cast, has flattered me beyond any suitable adjective. My dear friend, thank you.

    Yes, a blog party. Have it filmed as part of a 'reality' show. Watch the sparks fly as bloggers compare followers totals! :)

    Maybe we could have a episode where Bruce Jenner relives his past and selects a lucky blogger to be his prom date.

    Have a lovely weekend and bonus points for me commenting at gone two in the morning and leaving a ridiculously long response.

    Your starstruck fan,

    Gary :) x

  27. Oh this looks like fun, and, well, chocolate...

    Lovely to meet you!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Yea! I made it! You like me you rea.....ach you know the rest. But I would to thank my agent, my hubby and of course you Robyn and....(orchestra plays the "get the heck off the stage" music)
    blessings, Joanne

    ReplyDelete
  29. Those were great! Thanks for including mine. If my granny was here to see that you mentioned her, she'd say something like "what the hell is a blog?"

    ReplyDelete
  30. Very, very late to this party, hon, but I really love when you create a collage of all our comments. I love reliving the smiles, the laughs and the thoughts.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Lol! This was awesome and so amusing.
