At Least My Ass Gets Good Press

yeah.

from today's East Bay Express:
Kristy's entries are charming and sometimes hilarious: Her July 9 recollection of an inebriated comic mishap was illustrated with a photo of her own badly bruised buttocks.
um, MakeOut Kate? remember how you were in the paper for buying beer....?



*despite unknowingly making my ass more famous, i would like to give props to Shull O'Fit, who alerted me that the east bay express was looking for feedback from Bay Area bloggers.

  2. Can I be part of your entourage when you get all rich and famous and stuff? I won't fetch your lattés, but I'd be happy to boss around the sub-lackey that does!

    And can I have some bling?

  6. Two news articles about blogging in one day. The other one is on BBC and talks about Dooce.com.

    What's the world coming to?

    I'll be the lackey that gets the latte, as long as I can get one too!

    Congrats!

  10. So I've been reading your blog for a while, but I haven't commented until now. For some inexplicable reason, this seems like a good time to start... Thanks for your entertaining and encouraging (really!) writing.

    (On an unrelated note, I actually lived in Darien, CT, a few years ago; I was very amused when I read something you once wrote about living there. Again, I'm not entirely sure why. It is such a quaint and more-than-slightly BIZARRE community.)

    Cheers to you and to your new fame.

  11. And you're not even IN the East Bay! You rock!

  12. Umm.. about your last post, Kristy. This could be your blow for womens' lib. After all, if men can just grab hold of what they have and sccrrratch, why shouldn't you pull out what you've got and check it for running repairs?

    J.A.P.

  14. Kristy, I haven't commented for a while but, can I have your autograph anyway? Wow this is so cool, I hope your new job involves writing. You are so talented. And I agree, you are an inspiration. Humor is always good for the soul and your blog is a must read everyday! Love you, really.

  15. You should start posting autographed pics of your 'badly bruised buttocks' on eBay.

    You could make a little extra cash to pay for all those lackey's you'll have.

    Congrats.

  18. Is it too late to ask for a percentage of the profits? Then you can tell people that a total stranger (aka IIF) is making money off your butt.

    :-}

  19. I just visited a "celebrity" blog :)

    Nice blog btw. Keep it going

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yay for you K! That's fantastic. Also, in regards to your chicken trauma (which should probably be posted below, but I digress)...I recently had my own itchy under the bra experience, in my elevator at work, which was empty, so naturally I inspect it...while it completely slips my mind that the security guard on the way out has the nice camera footage, of me pulling my boob out and giving it the once over. He always gives me the nicest greeting when I come in these days.

  21. That's pretty effin cool. Go lady!

  22. OMG, I hear Good Morning America and the Today show calling!!!

    Flaunt it baby, flaunt it.

  23. dan, i think you get to be a pimp if you start making money off someone else's ass.

    ReplyDelete
  24. melissa...crap! I don't have the wardrobe for that. I guess K keeps all the profit.

    Oh well, she deserves it!

  25. At least they used your head shot for the picture at the top of the story......

  26. I'd like to know how you can write self-deprecating stories, post a picture of your butt and still get great comments and press coverage!

    I check the blog of that poor 'Dan' guy that got picked on here a few weeks ago and the commentors are still mean to him.

    You have a great group of IIF's I guess.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Dan, is that you trying to get people over to you blog again?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hey. That's a good idea! I didn't think of trying that.

    Hmmmmm......maybe I will....

    ReplyDelete
  29. anonymous...just tried it on my blog. I was hoping to sign it 'Danonymous' but it wouldn't let me. LOL

    Now I can entertain myself! (ummm...I'm desperate heehee)

    ReplyDelete
  30. Dan, I think what Anon 3:44 was saying is that we think you posted the anon 2:25 post here on this blog. Once again, trying desperately to get attention for your blog and again, distracting from Kristy's. Hope this won't turn into another "Dan has to have the last word" rant like last time.

  31. Look. I'm not going to debate or defend myself with you. I know who you are and what you're trying to do.

    I could not possibly take anything away from K's blog as it is far too good to be affected by me. I'm just a loyal reader who likes to poke fun at myself. Sooner or later you'll catch on and leave me alone.

    ReplyDelete
  32. WOW!!! That's awesome!!! Congrats K!!!

  33. I can only hope that someday and my blog and I are ½ as lucky/famous/wildly amusing. The confidence that is takes to put one’s own ass on their blog is astounding (well, to me anyway) keep it up!
