I can’t believe I’m saying this, but – pay no attention to me.
Just pretend I’m not even here.
I’m not, truthfully; I’m spending the week on the beaches of Georgian Bay and am only bringing you this post through the magic of the internet and the WordPress “Schedule” button.
But you know I love you all to bits, and I’d never leave on vacation without leaving a funny name in show business here for you! Since I have a bit of a reputation for having, um, a one track mind around here, I wanted to leave you something a little bit different today.
Everyone, this is Malin. She’s an actress, and a Canadian one at that. If you can tear yourself away from her baby blues, click the picture to go through to the Wikipedia link and learn all about her funny-named-fabulous-ness.
You’re welcome, boys.
She’s actually Swedish, but I’m totally with you on her place in your webpage. Yes mam.
Canadians love to count partial Canadians among their own. I think it’s one of the unwritten rules of being Canadian – you have to be able to name at least a few notable Canadians in each area.
Ack … Akerman … nicely played. I like it.
(And counting partial Canadians is totally a thing. I do it all the time. 😉 )
“. . . like a voicemail message played in a soundproof room in an abandonded building in an empty town, Amb’s ‘there-but-not-really-there’ post is a cutting edge high concept artistic gamble that pays off astoundingly well . . . Or does it?”
“. . . Amb’s latest forray into non-being recalls the sublime absurdism of Beckett’s Waiting for Godot and the episodic surrealism of Milan Kundera . . .”
“. . . entrancing . . . thought-provoking . . . deeply unsettling . . .”
Haha, wow, you’ve got quite the talent, diddy!
Thanks! Did you like “episodic surrealism”? I don’t know what it means, but it sounded good!
I tend to view incomprehensibility as a sign of a good fine-art review, so I was positively smitten by that one 🙂
these are the best ever! (except for what you wrote for ME ME ME yesterday 😉 ) You don’t make much sense here and it’s all good. You really are brilliant.
Senseless brilliance! It’s the best kind! But even better than that is to have the brilliant senselessness recognized by the discerning word masters at BoFN.
I can’t compete with anything in this entire thread at all. I heart you.
Dearest Amb, I wouldn’t have pegged you as the first person to use the “hot girls” tag on a BoFN post (although I guess I don’t know who else would have done it either). I can only assume this is you extending an olive branch to Rob in your “battle of the hot people of the opposite gender” (although Rob slipped up last post with that cartoon of the baseball player wearing a dress).
In any case, just one more piece of evidence that you do, indeed, contain multitudes! Hope you’re enjoying your vacation! (I’ll have to take one of those sometime soon)
I do indeed.
Don’t forget the weird Swedish Å letter, Amb, makes any name funnier. Åkerman. Don’t ask me how to type that, she’ll just have to join the gang of people nicknamed “copy-paste” around here.
Enjoy your vacation! That includes definitely not reading this comment until the far future, which means by the time you read this you will no longer be on vacation so my wishing you well will be a sort of unnecessary time loop. Or something. What was I saying? Something about episodic surrealism.
Right. I’ll get my coat then.
I’ll step in for amb here and say that you’re blowing her mind, Arto, with all this timey wimey loopy stuff (am getting the exact phrasing wrong here, but she’ll know what I mean) and you’re reminding her of her beloved Dr. Matt. 😉
Can I join the Copy-Paste gang? They sound bad.
You have to run it past Gylfi. He’s the ringleader: https://funnynamesblog.com/2012/04/26/gylfi-sigurdsson/
Ditto to everything Liz already said! She knows me so well 🙂 You totally reminded me of my beloved Doctor just then, Arto, and it was about seven kinds of awesome. My vacation was lovely, thank you!
PS Liz: it’s wibbly-wobbly timey-wimey stuff. Close enough, in my book!
Amb–way to be omnipresent!
I didn’t even notice the hot girls tag until Dave commented on it.
And Diddy–you have a way with words.
so if I would’ve given my post a hot girls tag, I would’ve gotten more likes? 😉 duly noted!
That’s rule #1 of the internet, Liz! 🙂
Oooh, omnipresent! Way to be multi-syllabic there Fannie, you know I love it. Thanks for hanging out even when I’m not around!
As we both have a love for polysyllabic words, it is my pleasure. 😉
You do the same for me when I’m out of town, it’s my pleasure to return the favor!
Help me out here. What’s so funny about “Malin Akerman”? Is it the Spoonerism potential – “Ailin’ Maker-man?”
Looking at this chick I feel I’m ailin’ alright. I’ve got dribble running down my chin.
I said my CHIN.
I hear you. I have the same reaction to pretty much every boy I ever write about on this blog ever.
(Totally digging your website(s), by the way. Hilarious and you write poetry – I’m developing a blog crush as we speak).
Thanks much, amb, that’s very kind. I dig wordsbecomesuperfluous!
Malin Ackerman HOTTTTTTTT!
