A Post for Brian, Part Deux

When the hubs read yesterday’s post, not only was he rejuvenated with a new feeling of awesomeness, he was also mightily pleased with himself as Superman.

B: You should do a WHOLE blog where you make me different comic book heroes.
A: You think?
B: Yeah! Spiderman, Aquaman, Captain America, Optimus Prime….it would be AWESOME!

And so, that’s exactly what I did for today’s post. Sort of.

My Husband as Various “Heroes”

Batman. Because tool belts are sexy. 
Captain Jean Luc Picard. Ha.
Neo wasn’t a comic book  hero, but he was “The One.”
Can’t….stop….laughing…….Harry Potter!

And lastly, because I was feeling left out:

Wait…weren’t they twins? This could be construed as weird.

God, I love Photoshop.

A Post For Brian

Once upon a time, in a land far, far away, I used to be a cheerleader.

Don’t laugh, I have photographic evidence.

And while I don’t still sport the same girlish figure, I do still utilize a lot of cheerleader-like tendencies in my day-to-day life.

For instance, don’t expect me to be docile if my favorite team is playing. I’m not going to sit quietly, ask any stupid questions, or offer to refill your drink. Rather, I’ll be sitting right next to you, screaming at the television as if I were at the stadium and my pleas to “break the quarterback’s neck” could actually be heard from my seat.

You’ve also noticed that I can make the most expressive faces known to man. That comes from pulling faces during competitions.  Example:

She’s good, but she has nothing on me.

I’m not sure why smiling isn’t enough, but honestly, pulling faces was the most fun aspect of dance for me. And I was GOOD at it.

But I think the one cheerleading trait I use the most often is my ability to instinctively know when a crowd needs a pick-me-up. After years of pulling for the underdogs, I can always feel the mood of the crowd shift from excitement to worry to hopelessness. Cue the cheerleaders! It was our job to make sure the crowd was still in it, despite the scoreboard.

So when my husband, my amazing husband, the man who is working full time and going to school full time, the man who has little-to-no free time, the man who is singularly changing our lives….when my husband comes home feeling exhausted and stressed and defeated, I reach for my proverbial pompoms.

Well, readers, today my pompoms aren’t so proverbial. They may be photoshopped, but the intent is the same. So join me, will you, in cheering on The Best Husband in the Universe!

Ahem.

*Abby puts pompoms down.*
Well, I hope that got my point across. Here’s hoping it made you smile, B. Cuz you are AWESOME and I’m SO PROUD OF YOU!!! You are my Superman.
You didn’t really think you’d be immune to the Photoshop fun today did you?
That’s right. I did it. You can thank me later.

A Continuation of Yesterday’s Comic

So yesterday, I mentioned that I had been invited to be a guest author over on The Katnip Lounge. 

You may not have noticed because it may have been, possibly, potentially, lost in the rant that was my post yesterday.

In case you missed it, make sure you venture on over and read my guest blog before you read today’s blog.

I’m sending a really big THANK YOU to Tricia, author of The Lounge, for offering to let me launch my official FatKat Comic Strip on her blog. As promised, here is part 2 of Scooter’s Magic Show. Enjoy.

Sigh. I’m beginning to wonder what I won’t do for a laugh.

You laughed, right?

I hope so. Because it’s slightly disturbing to Photoshop my cat’s head from his body. Sorry, Pip.

As mentioned in the last panel, I will be starting a weekly FatKat Comic Strip, to be posted every Sunday. There was such a huge response to the Birthday Blog I did for Scooter, particularly from my followers from The FatKat Kronicles, I decided to bring the boys back.

Well, at least once a week.

It’ll be great! I swear!
