Antisocial Commentary Release Party

My girl wants to party all the time, Party all the time, Party all the time!

Wow, look at that - a reference to one of the lamest celebrity singer-wannabe songs of all time. That's too bad. I was trying to think of a good party tag line and that's what I came up with?! Oh well... too bad so sad.

What I was trying to lead up to was a special invite for everyone to stop on over to the coolest party on the internet today.

Last winter I was stumbling around on the web and I landed at one of the funniest blogs going - Antisocial Commentary. At least so far. For all I know it could totally start to suck tomorrow and then I'd be a big liar.

But I wouldn't count on it. Diesel is one of those guys who oozes wit. Sure it's a bit messy, but in the end it's worth getting on your shoes. And now, he is doing something that a lot of us hope to be able to do ourselves someday (except that we all have jobs and therefore have to waste our time doing other silly things - like work)... Diesel is releasing his first book!

And you're invited to join in his Virtual Release Party! His new book Antisocial Commentary: From the Secret Files of the Mattress Police is a collection of over 50 of his best stories.

Antisocial Commentary will be published on August 15, but for a limited time you can pre-order a signed copy at a significantly discounted price. Diesel is a very strange good guy and an excellent writer. So help me show some support for a fellow blogger making his first foray into print. Head over to his site to preview the book or just check out some of his funny posts.

OR, you can wait for me to receive mine, scan it and put out my own copy for only $1.99. Of course it will be printed on leftover 3-ring looseleaf paper with yellow ink, since that's the only color left in my bubblejet printer anymore. But still, if you get the light just right you should be able to read it just fine.

And speaking of parties, the Democratic party just aired their much ballyhooed CNN/YouTube debate the other night.
This was the event where everyday people like you and me were allowed to submit questions to the candidates via YouTube clips - so the candidates could return the same everyday answers we've all heard before.

Anyway, this clip submitted by a fellow Minnesotan made me chuckle. Since I haven't actually seen the debate myself, I'm not sure if this entry was selected or not (most likely not). But even if it wasn't, I still found it funny.

Well, this must be the week of party posts. First my dad's birthday on Monday, Diesel's party today and another party coming up on Saturday. Man, I haven't partied this much in one week since the Vikings won the Superbowl!

Oh wait, that never happened. Well then, it looks like I've set a new record.

Party on Garth!

Ha! I loved the snowman! His "son" made me laugh out loud!
Glad you're having such a fun partying week!

OMGoodness, that made me laugh. I held it together until they cut to his son. Brilliant.

That movie is in my book, btw. And thanks for the great shout-out!

Thanks for letting me know about the book. Cool.

Jon Stewart did a great job "analyzing" the debate on the Daily Show the other night. Funny stuff.

I heard a clip of this on public radio the other day and had no idea what the heck it was all about. The visual really helps. Great stuff.

Hey, were were in Paynesville & St. Cloud earlier in the week. Stopped by to say hi but you weren't home. ;)

Jeff, I wanted to be the first to wish you "Happy Birthday little brother!" 46 years old!

Congratulations Diesel, you have a great gift with your observations. Today I want to say, "Happy birthday to my son, Jeff." What a joy and honor it is when everyone tells a parent how much they like your children. I guess your mother should take a few bows for even making me look good!!!

I can't let your Dad and Rick wish you Happy Birthday, and not get in on it too. So--Happy Birthday, Hon, and I just want to say, I am so proud to be your Mom!!!! Love You!!!

Her Majesty wanted me to sing the 'monkey' version, but I explained that monkey's have more hair so it wasn't appropriate. :-) Hope it was a great day.
