featured blogger friday v6

Friday, October 10, 2008

i have been a sucky blogger/commenter this week. work has been kicking my behind, but instead of complaining i need to be thankful that someone wants me to do work for them right? see how i spun that?

thanksfully by 5pm today all of my deadlines will have been met, and i will be out drinking with SUEDE. i hope i don't spill my drink on him, i hear liquid stains SUEDE pretty easily.

thank god for featured blogger friday during this week of insanity because that means a fabulous blogger can do all the work for me!

this week's featured blogger is living the high life out in los angeles, looking for miss right. or miss right now - i think it depends on his mood.

when i started the featured blogger series this blogger immediately raised his hand volunteering to fill out the survey. and how could i deny him? he has an amazingly humorous yet brutally honest blog - i mean who doesn't enjoy reading about his attempts to find love? plus he is all around genuinely awesome!

i don't know what i'll do when he gets back in a relationship.

ok, ok, enough of my babbles. i know who you really want read about.


Who are you and what is your blog?

So@24 aka “SO” aka “Dude with the blue bar across his eyes”


www.Startingoverat24.blogspot.com


Where are you typing from?

I might be the only blogger that does my writing when I get home. I usually have to have a beer or two when I dive into the “more intense” posts. My job frowns on drinking during normal work hours.


Prudes.


How long have you been blogging and what platform do you use?

I started writing back in June of 2007


Blogger is the only way to go. None of that fancy schmancy wordpress witch craft. That’s right. I said it. Pick your side.


Sum up your piece of the internet in one sentence.

The brutally honest experiences and thoughts from a single guy trying to date for his first time at 25.


Are you an anonymous blogger or do you scream who you are from the rooftop?

I started off anonymous to protect others, but I’m not as strict anymore after my ex discovered my ramblings . I still keep a blue bar over my eyes in pictures, but I’ll most likely Facebook friend you if you ask. And I’m always down to meet up for drinks.


Do your readers know what you look like?

Readers probably got a pretty good idea from this post.


Or if you’re the anti-clicking-on-links type:



If you could become famous from blogging like dooce would you want to?

I don’t know who “dooce” is, but it sounds absolutely disgusting.


I don’t aspire to be a “famous blogger”, but if someone approached me for a book deal… what kind of asshole would I be to turn it down?


So you just drank a bottle of wine alone and you’re sitting at your computer, who are the three bloggers that you email or google talk with?

Wine is disgusting. Can I change this to whiskey?


I’ve been known to have drunk dials with Dolce til 3 in the morning. Pacific Standard Time. No joke.


I wish I was friends with Pistols at Dawn and could drunk gchat him. However, I get really intimidated by people reading my blog whose blogs are way funnier than mine.


Other than that, I usually just go through my So@24 inbox and answer emails.


How many blogs are in your google reader?

I don’t have google reader. Maxie tried to explain it to me once, but my brain exploded. I typically just go through my comments and click on the blog links.


If you had $1000 to spend and could only buy one item, what would you buy?

A piece of the Agro Crag. Doy.


What’s your favorite thing to do after 10pm?

Have a beer. Read a book. Cop a feel.


Don’t make me choose just one.


Top three favorite movies from your childhood.

La Bamba (not my Riiiiiichie!)


The Cutting Edge (toeeeeeee piiiiiiick)


Hook (Don’t mess with me! I’m a lawyer!)


Name something random that I could find if I was snooping through your purse/wallet?

A worn picture of a little girl I used to babysit. Is that creepy?


Link to a funny you tube video you like.

Click Here!


Wanna share a secret with me, I promise I won’t tell… <-- that’s a lie, but tell me something anyways.

I know way more about The Babysitter’s Club than I should.


Trust me.


** Spoiler Alert**


Book 3: Stacey’s Secret? She had diabetes.


If you could trade places with one blogger for one day who would it be and why?

Ben or Beardsy. You see how many comments from the ladies these guys get?


Who’s your blog crush?

I have crushes on anyone who takes time out of their day to actually read my writing. How flattering is that?? But I guess that’s a cop out/lame answer…


I already mentioned Pistols, but that’s more like bro-love.


And Kim from What Claudia Wore. Absolutely hilarious.


Parting words of wisdom?

I'll never understand how Dagwood scored a hottie like Blondie, but it gives me hope.

  1. I will gladly trade places with you. While I may get comments from the ladies, I lack a serious SO@24 cool factor. I have much to learn...

  4. This is why I love SO he reads the Babysitters Club, but dammit I was just going to start book 3.

    PS the ladies read your blog cause they all have crushes on you.

  5. hahah I love SO!

    I want a piece of the agro crag too, dammit.

    But really I had a friend who dressed up as the agro crag for Halloween a couple of years ago. It was the most amazing thing of my LIFE.

  6. Good choice for your feature. I love SO. I think he should work on his confidence- I dare say he's as well loved as Ben.......

    ReplyDelete
  7. It's true, I do have a bloggy crush on Ben, but um, I also have one for SO.

    *runs away blushing*

  8. like i didn't love so@24 enough already... his movie choices? swoon.

    i love featured bloggers! i'd be scared to do it, the answers these guys give are the best!

    ReplyDelete
  9. I would like to be featured.

    Please and thank you.

  10. I love these! Though I didn't know all it took was an ambitious hand-raise.

    Ohh Ohh! Pick me!! I wanna play too!!

    ReplyDelete
  11. Alexa: Another winning survey! You make me appreciate Fridays even more --I can't believe it's possible, but it's true.

    SO: Oh Gawd... I cringe thinking about all the stupid crap I've said while under the influence of wine, vodka, pumpkin beer...

    A picture of a girl you used to babysit?
    How old is it?
    Creepy?

    No, not at all Pervy McPervster.

    I kid.

  12. I love this. One of my favorite bloggers!

    ReplyDelete
  13. That Agro Crag reference just scored you major points.

    ReplyDelete
  14. To be perfectly and totally honest, I'm sick of this guy! He's all over the effing blogosphere and everyone's all "SO is soooo awesome" and like feeding his ego. We need to bring him back now to earth!

    ;)

  15. You're playing with us, Peter!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I can't believe I've never seen it before now. You totally want to be Logan. Your aspiration as a single man is to find your Mary Ann and be Logan, the only boy in the babysitters club.

    Makes so much sense now.

    ReplyDelete
  17. You don't want to switch places with me.

    Lots of dirty looks.

    and ladies getting naked.

    I made one of those up.

    ReplyDelete
  18. The Cutting Edge (toeeeeeee piiiiiiick)

    Exactly why I still on this movie...on VHS. LOL

    ReplyDelete
  19. OMG... I could watch the Cutting Edge over, and over, and over. I still have a crush on DB Sweeney. And I have watched the Cutting Edge II... although not as classic as the original.

    Toe pick!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I don't know what I'd do without my google reader. I still think you should reconsider.

    ReplyDelete
  21. i LOVED the cutting edge.

    stacey had diabetes?!?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Great Q&A with SO! SO, you need a google reader, trust!

    ReplyDelete
  23. our boy here is a blog rock star already, so this just feeds his ego.

    meanwhile, I'm happy with my 10 (ok, 5) readers - we're small but tight...

    ReplyDelete
  24. La Bamba? There's someone out there who watched that too!!

    OH EM GEE!!!

    ReplyDelete
  25. Fun!

    SO, I feel I know you so much better now! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow! That was really fun to read. Great job!!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh man, the Cutting Edge was fantastic. I'm pretty sure I had it memorized at one point.

    ReplyDelete
  28. you're a babysitter's club fan? now do tell, who was your favorite of the girls? :)

    ReplyDelete
  29. Classic choices on your top three movies from your childhood -- I think I've probably seen The Cutting Edge, La Bamba and Hook a billion times each.

    Guess I'm not alone.

    Ahh the things you learn on Alexa's Featured Blogger Fridays...

    ReplyDelete
  30. Alexa: I used to think your blog couldn't possibly be more awesome but then you came up with F.B.F. (Featured Blogger Friday, FYI). Love it!

    SO: I can't believe you don't have google reader. Trust me, if I could figure it out anyone can.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I'm pretty excited to read about your night out with Suede. My mind is already reeling with options of what might have gone on.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Oh my gosh! I love The Cutting Edge!

    ReplyDelete
  33. "Aaawwww Doug!"

    Just when I thought I couldn't crush on SO any more...he breaks out The Cutting Edge and Babysitter's Club.

    *swoon*

    ReplyDelete
  34. I want a piece of the agro crag too! If only I could have been on that show.

    And Hook? STILL one of my favorite movies.
