featured blogger friday v8

Friday, October 24, 2008

if there were 20 something blogger superlatives, this week's featured blogger would be voted most popular. and that's not a stretch.

men, women, children and even dachshunds all love this guy.


i personally want to put him in my pocket bringing him out every night to drink martinis and hang out with me. is that weird? probably.


i can't wait for the 20SB meet-up this summer to see all the bloggers fight for his attention. hope the newf doesn't get too jealous : )

ok, enough of my jibber jabber let's get to the
main event!


Who are you and what is your blog?


Why hello there! I almost don’t know where to begin since I don’t think I’ve ever been
mentioned on this blog before.

I’m Ben and I keep myself busy over at No Ordinary Rollercoaster - a name that incorrectly suggests that I support poor grammar. Truth is, I simply don’t believe that rollercoaster should be split into two words and I refuse to do so no matter how many of you correct me in your blogrolls (sheep…).

Oh. And I also write for the world’s coolest dog blog . Hyperbole be damned.


Where are you typing from?

Halifax, Nova Scotia - home of Ellen Page, Sidney Crosby, Feist, Anne Murray, problem drinking and me.

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

I’ve been going since January 2007 and have stuck by Blogger the entire time. Why? Because I know who my real friends are and no matter how much bigger Wordpress’ boobs are and how much money Typepad’s dad has…Blogger is and will forever be my platform of choice.


Sum up your piece of the internet in one sentence.

The daily shit that people read in hopes that the newf makes an appearance.

or,

A much less-arousing substitute for internet porn time.

or,

The Brady Bunch if everyone were gay, drunk, talentless or wiener dogs.

Your pick.


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

Google Benjamin Boudreau for your answer on that one. I use to have the top spot for Ben Boudreau too but some hockey-playing douchebag has it now for his stats. As if that’s more important than the useless noise I spew out on a daily basis...AS IF, I SAY!


Do your readers know what you look like?

Yes they do. But do you know what most of them DON’T know? Most don’t know what the newf looks like. BEHOLD:


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

I thought so. Then there was this week where my blog was a little out of control and it made me want to be a half-crazy recluse. I’m going to say yes but know that I’d be sick to my stomach 75% of the time especially if a substantial number of people in Halifax started reading. I would hate that. Then I’d be an all-the-way-crazy recluse.


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?

Jamie. Maxie. Rachel. For me, this question is not so much hypothetical as it is, “that time that this happened, who did you email or google talk with?”


How many blogs are in your google reader?

165 and I read every single one. Coincidentally, I have no free time and my eyes are bleeding.


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

A house made of gold. DON’T RUIN MY DREAMS WITH TALKS OF BUDGETS!

lalalalalalalalalalacanthearyoulalalalalalalalalala


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

Last year I would’ve said be setting drinking records at the martini bar (I still have my 12 martini title!) but now that we’re all common-law married and shit, I just get in bed and try to convince myself that buying a house in the suburbs hasn’t made me lame.


Top three favorite movies from your childhood.

The Chipmunk Adventure. Silverhawks. Bedknobs and Broomsticks.


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

A crumpled up business card from the first job I got after graduating university. It’s boring, I know, but neither my dead body collection nor my shame fit in my wallet.

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

I’ve had a self-image problem since I was ten and I don’t think I’ve ever looked in a mirror to see what I actually look like to other people.


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

Tiffany because she spends every day dripping in gorgeous with a talented photographer husband to document it all. Plus that way I’d be coming out even with two mini dachshunds to play with.

On second thought, can I switch with her husband? It’d be kinda weird if I showed up and while she was away and was all “hey! Wanna hang out? What side of the bed do you sleep on?”


Who’s your blog crush?

See that 165 number of blogs on my reader? That’s how many crushes I have. Want me to list them all? Fack no.

Parting words of wisdom?

Always be on guard against the dutch oven.

  1. If I looked like you'd I'd stand NAKED in front of the mirror and admire myself.

    I only speak the truth.

    and that picture is adorable!

  2. Aww Ben, we all love you! And how cute is the newf! I would love to talk curriculum with him all day long.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Nice interview. Plus, you're officially what I would call an "obnoxiously cute couple." This is usually followed by a snarl in your general direction (possibly a fist shake if I'm drunk enough), and the need to drink even more.

    Thanks for starting my day off right *snarl*

  4. You two are absolutely adorable together!

    ReplyDelete
  5. you two are way too cute...it gives me hope that beautiful people (like myself) can indeed find love!

    ReplyDelete
  6. Ha! That was so funny that I am not going to call you on Anne Murray. Mostly because we Nova Scotians have to stick together.

    (I totally moved to wordpress because of her boobs.)

    (Wordpress' boobs. NOT Anne Murray's boobs. I can't stress that enough.)

    ReplyDelete
  7. LOL. Loved that interview! Great picture of you two!

    ReplyDelete
  8. Two guys that hot in one house?!

    People in your neighborhood are probably jealous of you.

    I know I am.

    ReplyDelete
  9. Since I'm not super creative today...I totally agree with ashley and fitness nerd!!

  14. Yummy! You and newf are so cute! :)

    ReplyDelete
  15. Feist isn't from Halifax! She grew up in Alberta and got famous in Toronto, no?

    Also the newf is adorable. (as are you)

    ReplyDelete
  16. If you two were any more adorable together I probably would have to throw up. :)

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wait a second... The newf is a DUDE? I suppose I could have figured that out by reading your posts more carefully, but I'm a visual kind of gal.

    Well, at least he's a cute dude.

    (I'm just kidding, btw, about three months after finding your blog is I figured out he was a dude.)

    ReplyDelete
  18. excuse me ben. why have you been keeping your hot newf from us?!??

    ReplyDelete
  19. Ben, I just want you to know that when the rest of the blogworld pushes you out of the way to get closer to the newf, I'll still have you.

    ReplyDelete
  20. No wonder we've never seen the newf!

    Ben, you are one lucky boy. And I didn't realize that you're married! Congratulations! (I've been a bad No O.R.) reader, and this clearly gives it away).

    ReplyDelete
  21. you and newf are hot! which makes me sad...all the cute/funny/intellegent guys are all gay AND married! Thanks for leaving me with the losers :-)

    jk...great post!

    ReplyDelete
  22. High Five, Ben!!! For a great post and nailing such a hot newf! (you're just as cute).

    Bedknobs and Broomsticks??? I completely forgot about that movie!!! Portabella Road? Heaven. I want to run away with Angela Lansbury right now!

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm linking to Ben everyday on my blog because he's awesome.

    Ok, for the attention.

    I'll take the awesome second.

    ReplyDelete
  24. DAYUM Ben! You and the Newf are CA-UTE!

    What a great feature! You always make me laugh so hard that it makes people stop by my office and ask me what I'm laughing about. (or as you say "aboot")

    Yes please, trade places with my husband for a day! Oh the fun we would have! :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Holy Hotties!

    Your neighbors have got to be just stunned by the awesomeness that is your household! Two hot dude + 2 cute hell-raising dachshunds = who can compete with awesomeness like that?

    Love the interview! Made my morning. Thanks!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Wow! The newf has great eyes :D

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh look at you and the newf in all your handsomeness.

    ReplyDelete
  28. You had me at the beautiful boys picture and then Bedknobs & Broomsticks. Which according to Friendfeed, will arriving to me from Netflix in two days. And I don't care that Theo is a spunkmonkey sometimes...he's so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Funny I pictured a big Newfoundland Dog playing with two weiners, Weird image I know.

    What part of Newfoundland is he from?

    ReplyDelete
  30. You guys are so cute together! And don't I know about the google searches and stats. Damn that jerk Phil McGraw! And the other jerk who stole my '.com' address after I had already established myself at one spot but before I got savvy enough to buy the domain name.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I so wish you were my gay neighbors! Holy hottness that's what the two of you are.

    ReplyDelete
  32. awww yay we love ben! he and the newf are so cute!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. I wanted to make some "oh that's awesome" or "oh that's funny" comment, but the ENTIRE THING was awesome and funny.

    Ben for president!

    ReplyDelete

    So funny. And you and the newf are so cute together. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Um, remember when you said Crissy's photo made you wanna go straight? Well, if you could hold onto that feeling for a bit and bring you and your hot newf to NYC I would be most appreciative.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Um yes, so the Newf can teach me anything he likes, any time. Really.

    Haha just kidding - I love you more every day Ben

    ReplyDelete
  39. O HAI! REMEMBER ME??

    I'm Ben. I'm the blogger. The one that you read.

    The newf is not a blogger. He doesn't read blogs. EVER. Not even mine.

    SO STOP KISSING UP.

    I'm way cooler anyway.

    Screw you newf. You smell bad.

    ReplyDelete
  40. hahaha. oh ben, you make such a valid point.

    i featured you not the newf!

    xoxo

    ReplyDelete
  41. I give you credit for reading all those blogs, dude, and am even happier now that you read mine. And that you come from the hometown of Sid the Kid.

    ReplyDelete
  42. *Ahem* I wasn't kissing up - I was simply congratulating you on scoring such a tasty man-friend.

    Oh and my shame fits in my wallet in the form of a list of men I've slept with

    (kidding - that would be weird)

    ReplyDelete
  43. I always thought Feist was from Calgary, and I *almost* corrected you but wiki-ed her real quick and found you were right :)

    So much for that. . .

    -Kelly

    ReplyDelete
  44. Well...you're not completely wrong. Like Lfar pointed out, she could be 'from' Calgary depending on how you mean it. She grew up and got famous there but she was BORN in Amherst, Nova Scotia :)

    ReplyDelete
  45. awww great blog!! you're hilarious.. and i adore tiffany!!

    ReplyDelete
  46. OMG, the newf is, indeed, adorable. Almost as adorable as your blog. You're in my reader :D
