Playing Quid Pro Quo with Turnbaby can be dangerous to your reputation. Well, I don’t really have much of a reputation in the blogosphere yet. And really, I didn’t say anything that all of you who come by here on Monday, didn’t already know… I’m a dork. So when Turnbaby asks me if I could have anyone I want to do my bidding for 48 hours, who would it be? You know what my answer was. I popped off, “Marcus Schenkenberg.”
Now, in and of itself, that’s not a bad answer for a completely off the cuff, from the gut answer. Those of you who know how much I drool over this man are not expecting any other answer from me. But when that same question is posed to Turnbaby herself, her answer involves power. She chooses Dick Cheney. Then, on top of that, Turnbaby asks Kyra the same question. Kyra’s answer is someone who is incredibly rich so she could have them transfer money into her bank account.
Do you see what’s wrong with my answer now? Turnbaby goes for power. Kyra for riches. What do I go for? Forty eight hours of sex with a hot beautiful man. And I don’t even know if he’s any good in the sack! I coulda just made a totally bum choice there! And to make my choice look even more lame, the man was once engaged to Pam Anderson. I’m positive no one in the Blogosphere who was listening has any respect for me now. I would have gotten buttloads of respect if I had said Dave from Blogography or Karl from Secondhand Tryptophan. But, no. I gotta pick Marcus.
Since I can’t do any worse on the reputation front after that sorry ass display on Sunday, here is an old video of Marcus. He looks pretty young here. Sounds it too. He totally is making me look like I made a poor choice with my Quid Pro Quo question.
That picture up there at the top of the post is a pretty recent photo of Marcus. It was taken in January of this year in Barcelona. Can you believe the man is 39? I can’t. He’s still younger than me which makes him totally stalkable. I really can’t work up any interest for a man my age or older. It’s just part of who I am.
And speaking of younger men, I have to give a shout out to one of my new readers. He’s not new to me because I’ve been reading his blog for a couple of months now, but he came by here this weekend and tried to make me feel better about my battle with WordPress. I’m talking about Jason X from The User Pool. This man’s blog is some seriously funny shit. And the best part of it is… I don’t think he’s making any of it up. If you want to know what really goes on in the corporate world… read this blog. But don’t drink while you read. You will spit your drink all over your monitor.
And now it’s time for the weekly Marcus Awards. With 5 Marcuses each, Mary and Shiny (the female one) take top honors. They are followed by Matt and Susan with 3 each. Next is Fab and Vixen with 2 each. Our onesies of the week are, Nicholas, Livvy, Malcolm, Fullbodytransplant, Karl, Lara Angelina, Pussreboots, Open Grove Claudia, Nap Warden, and Jason X. The race to the first Marcus Award prize is very tight! I’ve made it more difficult for you all by whining this past week too. I commend you all for putting up with me and hope that you will continue to come by and roll your eyes at my inane babbling. Happy Marcus Monday!
