Monsters’ Ball: The Week’s Top Comments

By Gabe Delahaye / June 7, 2013 - 5:30 pm

We did it! Another Friday on the books! Congratulations to everyone who worked so hard to make this Friday happen. There was a point on Wednesday where I wasn’t sure we were going to make it, but it was your guys’s unflagging determination that carried the day. And also the next day, Thursday. Obviously I want to thank God up in heaven without Her none of this would be possible. Also my family. And my fans. But most of all I want to thank all of the LITTLE PEOPLE who really made this happen. You guys don’t get thanked enough. You are the true heroes. One love? I don’t know. I’m losing the thread of this fake acceptance speech. Like, I don’t even know what I’m accepting anymore. Friday? I’m accepting an award on behalf of Friday who unfortunately couldn’t be with us tonight because she’s on location in Morocco? Is it hot in here? Is anyone else hot? Do you smell almonds? [Orchestra begins playing.] Goodnight! Oh wait, I forgot to than–[Mic is cut off.]

I got married on Saturday and no celebs crashed. It was amazing, though.

I usually meet women in the grocery store (sometimes men too!) by putting my groceries on the conveyor belt, at which point they pick them up and tell me how much I have to pay them. They’re short relationships, but I think they’re pretty fulfilling for all involved.

I just joined a gym, and had a personal training session before work this morning. It was quite a workout for my wee birdlike limbs, and at the end I had to leave to throw up in the bathroom. Someone heard me and (I swear to God) yelled out “Sounds like you ate my wife’s cooking!” That was when I realized that the door to the men’s changing room was actually A PASSAGEWAY TO 1956.

I’ve been pretty exhausted all day. I mentioned this yesterday, but I got married on Saturday, and still have yet to really recover. We still have friends and family in town, so I was out pretty late last night. I’ve been back at work for 2 days, and it’s fine but I really feel like I need to sleep for 2 days straight to feel normal again.

But I am not complaining, because I am really, really happy.

Posted in: Are You Doing Anything Special For The Purge This Year?!

[Ed. Note: First of all shout out to the entire The Purge thread, which is one of my most favorite threads in a really long time. Everyone is doing great work over there. (Another highlight of the thread: "Ugh, what if The Purge was on your birthday?" But you have to give it up for this comment, which is both a funny The Purge comment and also a decent call back.]
