Captain Embarrassment Strikes Again

This morning, I was cruising around on Facebook looking at photos that friends had posted, and found myself sighing over pictures of Diane. Diane and I were on exchange in Taiwan together, and she was a model before, but things really seem to be taking off for her now; it’s picture after picture of ‘this is me in a tv commercial in India’, ‘this is me on three magazine covers in China’, ‘this is me on a photoshoot in ____(exotic location here)___’ and she always looks so gorgeous and elegant and put together that it makes me feel a little wistful and sad, and yes, a wee bit jealous that I have never photographed well and will never experience her exciting, jet-setting lifestyle .

Then, I went to Starbucks to pick up coffee for the office, and as I was walking back to the car with my hands full, my pants fell down.

I should stop dreaming after ‘elegant’ and settle on ‘not humiliating myself in front of crowds of people’.

This last weekend, my parents both asked what I would like for Cthulhumas–all of a sudden, I’m thinking belts are a good idea.

Christ.

      I really need to get cthulhumas.com up and running.

        Yes, you should. Speaking of which, I should get cracking on designing Cthulhumas cards for this year. ๐Ÿ™‚

          Speaking of which–is Cthulhumas how you found this journal? Just curious as to how people make their way to the dark side. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Look at it this way: pants falling down = sure sign of weight loss. SCORE.

      You raise an excellent point, sir.

    This is the danger of walking through a strong freak field with a freak magnet in your pocket.

    1. admin November 7, 2007 at 7:32 pm

      How am I supposed to know when I’m entering a freak field? ๐Ÿ™

      1. kindofstrange November 7, 2007 at 10:12 pm

        ‘You’re in close proximity to Rob’ would be at least one good indicator.

    That’s precisely why mom always told you to wear clean underwear when you leave the house. YOU NEVER KNOW.

    1. admin November 7, 2007 at 9:45 pm

      It makes me think that wearing ones with ‘YARRR!’ emblazoned across the back was not such a good idea.

      1. kindofstrange November 7, 2007 at 10:29 pm

        Hey, at least you weren’t going commando style.

        I got a tear in the ass of my less-than-a-year-old jeans the other day and had to wear my long, heavy leather coat all day to cover the bit-o-cheek that was exposed.

        1. admin November 7, 2007 at 10:34 pm

          Now I REALLY understand the appeal of the coats we just purchased–with that extra-long ruffle across the butt, it covers up all manner of cheeky mishaps. ๐Ÿ˜€

    this, unbelievably, happens to THE WIFETM with some degree of regularity.

    we have yet to establish why. though weight loss is, as has been previously mooted, the psychologically favourable if not most realistic reason.

    1. admin November 8, 2007 at 12:18 am

      I know some of my lady friends have that issue because they don’t have any hips or rear end. I have already established that is not MY problem.

      I’m thinking that aliens with a pants-enlarging ray gun are toying with me.

      1. fete_pindon November 8, 2007 at 2:17 pm

        this can be the only reasonable conclusion.

        1. admin November 9, 2007 at 4:20 pm

          I like to think of myself as a reasonable person, yes.

        Like in Idiocracy, I would venture a guess they were trying for a penis-enlarging ray along with a cure for anti-baldness gun but failed arriving at only the pants enlarging gun which they now use for cheap thrills.

      Re: Christ indeed

      EWWWWWWWW. Got you beat, though. There was a pumpkin that I fully intended to carve last year, but I ended up putting it on the back patio. All of a sudden, it was march and not quite pumpkin season anymore. Surprisingly, it didn’t smell…until it came apart as I was cleaning it up. Oh, spew.

    “Then, I went to Starbucks to pick up coffee for the office, and as I was walking back to the car with my hands full, my pants fell down.”

    If you were at the time carrying a grocery bag containing a stalk of celery, then you were a victim of a well known physics anomaly, known only as the Frahm Effect.

    1. admin November 19, 2007 at 4:26 am

      No celery in sight, and I wasn’t wearing lacy pink underthings, either. Now that I know the effects of that combination, however, I will be much more careful in the future!
