But you said to choose a nice flour for the bride…

June 4, 2007

It was one of those challenges that modern women with full lives sometimes have to face, and Pam did it beautifully.

Her to-do list told her that on Saturday she had to get married, then rush immediately to play in a pro football game, and then cover her evening shift as a street mime. A born problem solver, Pam had the brilliant idea of buying a wedding gown that would cover her bulky shoulder pads during her nuptials, and she also saved time by wearing her cake mime makeup during the ceremony.

As you can see in this photo, our plucky Pam pulled it off so deftly that it hardly showed. You go, girl!

Proof we are running out of ideas for movies:

This year’s newest Christmas-themed romantic comedy is about an Angel tree-topper who falls off and comes to life, and falls in love with a wooden nutcracker. She spends all Christmas trying to find Pinnochio, and ask for his help to turn the Nutcracker into a real man.

Melly, it’s great to see you back in the COMMENTS section, after a long absence. You must have been away in Tibet or someplace honing your comedic talents…

I love the porta-pillows, having fallen asleep standing up. Never into a huge vat of cocaine

Who told you??

I’ll let you slide, but if you told anyone else, they must die.

Sorry, but that’s the way it has to be.

Thanks 😉
