Justin Raises the Bar of Mediocrity Even Lower: A Post Employing the Flashback Techniques Used by the Very Finest of 80's Sitcoms.

Justin: It sure has been a crazy couple of days around here. I guess that is why I am taking next week off.

Justin: Even with a few days off there have been some good times around here. In spite of everything you are nearing the top of the fourth quadrant.

Justin: C'mon. That was two days ago. Let's think a little further back. And anyway, while you are pretty awesome, let's not forget that you haven't always been a model of stability. But even without stability, their have been some good times.

Justin: Are you thinking of the COI Birthday Party?

Justin: No, I was thinking of the time you gave up writing a novel.

Justin: You don't have to be so saracastic. Anyway, there were some good times during NaNoWriMo

Justin: Yeah, like you did manage to crank out a first draft of a novel.

Justin: (Awkward Pause.)

Justin: It isn't all books and theory around concept of irony. Let's not forget that you really know how to make a playlist.

Justin: I do what I can on a tight budget. It isn't like any one even buys anything from the concept of irony shop.

Justin: Plus let's not forget all of the lovin going on around here. Your failed use of eharmony. Your failed back up plan marriage proposal.

Justin: O.K. I get it. I mean not everything failed. Who else could get Hugo Chavez to serve as guest literary critic? and Noam to talk about mugs.

Justin: (Sighs)Good times.

Justin: But I do have to admit: using flashbacks for filler is a lot harder than I imagined.

Justin: Lousy HTML.

(Both Laughing. Fade Out.)

Wow. Some harmonica laden theme music just started playing in my house. Creepy.

Justin said...

Maleah, I am totally missing this reference. First Sophie with her Splenda remarks and now Harmonica? I don't get it. Please explain.
I'm going to read your blog now. I hope you have linked to me.

MY BOOKBAG RULES! and i hope you have a nice week off. oh, and i will use this as a plug:

EVERYONE! come see the vagina monologues at JCU this weekend at 730. i'm in them, they are funny, and it's only 5-7 bucks, depending on if you reserved your ticket or not (which i'm betting no one on here did. so 7.) ok bye!

Justin said...

Oh, apocalypto:
Usually I delete spam, but I'll let this one slide.

For those who are thinking of flying in, by JCU means john carroll.

I guess that is 7:30 Saturday and Sunday?

I, myself, should like to see it, if only I could come up with another 83 cents.

MY NAME IS ALECIA, JERK said...

tonight too!!

Sophie T. Mishap said...

First of all, high-five to Maleah!

Ummmm...there is no second of all.

Justin said...

Sophie,
Why do you always take Maleah's side?

maleah said...

It's a conspiracy to take over your popular blog... I haven't gotten to links yet. I'm still working on the photos... I have kids and a house to take care of. I can only sit down to the computer between things like "So, your Pull-Up is wet, pull it off and pull on another one," or "FIXYOUROWNDAMNDINNER!" Two year olds are so needy. Geesh.

Your store is quite an impressive business. Are those mugs made out of pure ivory? And I'm guessing the apron is made of the finest silk that has been blessed by the Pope and also worn by that Russian writer you like with the beard. The manly one, you know...

Justin said...

ki two,
Thanks. Just let me know what you will be ordering.

Those mugs are great for transporting water to the gym.

Jenn said...

Do you realise that the past five posts have had...what's your name again?

The Name of This Author is Justin Kahn said...

Jenn,
What are you getting at?

Atrevida said...

Nice blog, good info...

Jenn said...

Oh you shrinking violet. Born to blush unseen and waste your sweetness on desert air.

Pepper Medley said...

Great post! It proves the theory that two Justins CAN live in a world, or a penthouse, where internal monologues collide.

Ki Two said...

Miss you.

Taihae said...

my god, this whole comment list is like the vagina monologues. You're popular with the ladies, Justin.

Tag(Carpet)Bagger said...

Keep raising that mar of mediocrity dude...

Someone Wise once said...

Using links to your own blog to give the apearance of popularity? Shame shame. Shame....

Quilly said...

Just my luck to wander by when you're away. I slipped he reruns since I saw their debuts.

Justin said...

quilly,
I hope that when you drop by again, I will more posts. By then I'll probably have kids to write about, and certainly the moon station will provide endless fodder for parody.

Justin said...

someone wise, sadly it doesn't affect my technorati ranking. Not that I have google adsense or anything.

Justin said...

tag, I will. And thank you for your contribution.

Justin said...

taihae,

Well, I'm popular with people claiming to be ladies. But you never can tell in cyberspace. I know, pretty definitely that one of these commentors is a spambot.

Justin said...

Thanks, pepper. Though I didn't realize such a theory existed.

Under no circumstances does one create a plural with an apostrophe. There's no such thing as the 1980's. There were the 1980s, however.

Justin said...

Giddoclif,
Thank's.
