I totally do not understand how Google image search works. What does the picture above have to do with Megan being pregnant? It is scary. Please change it, Google.
Google image search should return this:
That is much better.
Megan is in week 24 of her pregnancy. She is looking good. The baby continues to grow and so does her belly.

"halloween gone wrong"
Some things, you can't "un-see". The picture above is one of them.
I am sorry, blog. I am sorry I put this picture on you. I am sure you are embarrassed of me. I am sure you are embarrassed for yourself. Why do I abuse you?
Halloween is probably my favorite holiday. I love it. Here are some of my favorite costumes that I have worn through the years:
- Guinness four-pack (with 3 other friends)
- dancing banana
- my high school calculus teacher
I love Halloween.
But if YOU love Halloween, you will come see Master Pancake's Halloween on Wednesday at 7 PM at the Alamo Ritz. Yours truly will be in the show. Come check it out. In the sketch, you will get to see Joe play Michael Myers (the murderer, not the comedian), John as the awesomely creepy Dr. Harold Loomis and me as a murdered female high school slut. It will not disappoint. Plus, a drinking game! Hooray! You can get tickets here. We make less of a mockery of this movie than Rob Zombie did.

worst halloween costume
Wow. What happened??! I am both afraid and sad. I am guessing he lost a bet.
Last year, I was the Peanut-Butter-Jelly-Time dancing banana. This year, I am sticking with the famous-on-the-internet theme. I am going to be Stacy Hedger. You don't know Stacy Hedger? She is this lady:
Hopefully, I will see you over Halloween. If not, I will re-enact this Stacy Hedger's talent show performance and post it online.
I love Halloween.

Attention Austin-ites! My friend, Kat Candler, has a couple of short films playing at the Austin Film Festival this weekend. If you are going to AFF, you should check it out. Here is the press release:
(Austin, Texas) Candler Productions is pleased to announce that the award-winning director and screenwriter Kat Candler (cicadas, Roberta Wells, jumping off bridges) has two new short films, Quarter to Noon and Love Bug, at the 2009 Austin Film Festival.
In 2000, Candler received the Undistributed Feature Film Audience Award at the Austin Film Festival for her debut feature, cicadas. This year, Candler is back with two new shorts.
Quarter to Noon a 2009 Official Selection of the Women in Film International Showcase and the 2009 Texas Filmmaker’s Showcase stars Anne Nabors (jumping off bridges, Tree of Life) and Chris Mass (Chalk). It’s a fantastical tale about an office worker who discovers something just beyond her office walls that will change her life forever.
Love Bug follows nerdy, nine-year old Turtle Thompson as he works up the nerve to ask his best friend, Maddy Cooper, to the elementary school Spring Fling Dance. Starring Reese Merritt (Secret at Arrow Lake, Killer Weed) and Kelsey Buchanan, Love Bug is an excerpt from Candler’s next feature film The Spider in the Bathtub (co-written by Chris Mass). The Spider in the Bathtub was a 2009 Tribeca All Access Participant and was recently optioned by Executive Producer Victoria Fredrick (Pride) and LAF Studios.
Kat Candler is an Austin based director, screenwriter and Lecturer at the University of Texas and runs Candler Productions.

well well well
So guess who got married... my friends, Joe & Kristin. About 3 weeks ago, they got married at Umlauf Sculpture Garden in Austin, Texas. For my friends in Austin, you probably know Joe from Master Pancake theater. He is the shortest performer not named Owen.
Here is a photo of Joe, the Chick-Fil-A mascot and myself.
Joe is afraid of mascots. I am awkwardly comfortable with them. Almost creepily comfortable.
Here is another photo of (L to R) John, Ben, Emmy award winning Jacksonville news anchor Bruce Hamilton... and Joe.
John pointed out that Bruce Hamilton and Joe were having a moment in this photo. Here is a zoom of the same picture as above.
Makes me laugh every time. For the uber-bored, here is a video of that entire interview in Jacksonville.
I was asked to stand up for Joe and Kristin at their wedding. I happily agreed. Here are some photos of us at the wedding. The groomsmen:
The happy newly weds dancing:
Well, well, well... Joe and Kristin got married. Congratulations, my friends.
That's right, I'm changing the name. It went from "Daily Name This Person and Win" to "Almost Daily Name This Person and Win". The prizes and rules are still the same, but the name is more accurate.
The first person who names the person in this picture wins a hug from Ben!!!

Blog - I have missed you. I am sorry I left you abandoned for so long. You must have been lonely. I feel sad that I left you with UFC wrestlers at the top for so long. You deserve better. Let me explain.
I put a baby inside of Megan. Hell, yes!!! High-five me, blog! I am going to be a dad!!! Crazy, eh?! I am stoked. Check out this picture of my baby:
My baby is a boy. Need proof? Check out his penis!
You looked a baby's penis, you pervert!
And here is a picture of his foot:
Crazy that this baby is inside of Megan's belly, eh? I am pumped. I have always wanted to be a dad. Now I am getting a shot. I hope I don't screw this up.
I was so stoked when I was blogging back in July because I knew that I was going to be a dad, but I had not told the world. We told my parents and Megan's mom face-to-face. So, when I was blogging back in July, it was like I was lying. I was trying desperately not to spill the beans, but it felt disingenuous to NOT write about the only thing that was really on my mind.
So I stopped blogging. I abandoned you. I am sorry, blog. I won't do it again... unless I forget.
There is so much to catch-up on. Here is what happened while I stopped blogging:
1) found out I was having a boy
2) went to Chicago\Milwaukee
3) Joe Parsons got married
4) did another STAG! show at the Alamo Ritz - sold out!
5) did a run of shows with Master Pancake
I will fill you in on the details in future blogs. But for now, know that I missed you.
