Hey guess what? Its our birthday.
‘But Alex!’ I hear you cry, ‘It isn’t my birthday! Furthermore I seriously doubt that any significant percentage of your readers would have their birthday today either.’
So what the hell am I talking about?
Simple. Its my blog’s birthday. Its been a whole year since I started writing Adventures in TV-Land. A whole year ago I fumbled my way into the very first post. Now, 365 days later, I’ve somehow written 58 of them. And more than that, there are people who read them. I’m no longer sitting down on Sunday to write into a vacuum. I’m talking to you guys. You guys are awesome.
So this week is something different. I’m not going to say special because I’m not sure it is. It’s a video. Of me. Telling a joke. This was inspired by a few things. Beth told me that I have a very distinct voice in her head (which is the biggest compliment you can give a writer) but that it probably sounds nothing like my own. Which got me thinking.
I didn’t write this joke. But it is one of my favourites. Its also the one I tell when someone demands I tell them a joke. At least the times the person demanding it is someone I like enough to humour them. It’s the only foolproof joke I know. I’m yet to meet someone who doesn’t like it.
So this is my birthday present to you, dear readers. You’ll laugh. Everyone does.
