A Vlog: Saying Goodbye to John Green and David Levithan; FML

I felt kind of bad that I had promised a Vlog and never delivered—especially after reading all your delicious pleading comments on my last post. But instead of wasting your time with an old video, I created a new one.

You know, I’m all about forward motion.

So, here’s where I am now in this whole Will Grayson Squared Dance contest hullaballoo. The thing is, the winners have yet to receive their prizes. Because I haven’t sent them. I’ve been a little…hesitant. And I thought I’d show you why.

SoOkaythen. My first Vlog Ever.

(P.S. Make sure to close out any ads that pop up on the bottom of the screen, or it will cut off captions. And you seriously don’t want to miss all the bad words.)




On that note, I have winners’ packages all made up. They should go out shortly. After closing ceremonies and a good hard cry.

I sure hope that Kimberly Franklin, Lisa and Laura Roecker, and Stina Lindenblatt don’t feel too responsible for my pain. It’s not their fault they entered my contest with every intention of stealing winning my J & D books. But let it be known they will forever be known as Book Thieves 1, 2 & 3, and 4, respectively (I counted Lisa and Laura separately because, contrary to popular belief, they are actually two semi-detached individuals*). Oh, and DL Hammons and Casey McCormick? I hope you don’t overly mind partially eaten chocolate as part of your prize packages. If it’s any consolation, it was very good.

Finally, I haven’t forgotten my dance video post. That’s next on the list. Probably.

*Removes creepy statue mask and takes a bow*

*I say semi-detached because I’m under the impression they share the same glass eye, and that seems to me like sharing a body part almost.**


**I really, really like glass eyes. And sometimes I really, really lie about it.

  1. Even though I saw this a bit ago, I am still laughing. Hard. Thanks for this awesomeness!!

  2. Whoa. Jonathon, dude! A fella has to be quick on the trigger to beat you to the comment punch, dun't he?

    Wait. I should be commenting on the vlog, and not the comments, yeah? Yeah.

    Now, while the whole vlog was pretty hiLARious in an OMG-did-Carol-really-do-that kind of way, what made it for me was the guest spot by your husband at the end. The fact that you (he) went ahead and just rocked the biatch comment was what made me fall out of my chair laughing. And when I say I fell out my chair laughing, I mean it was kind of embarrassing since I was at work at the time (I saw the vid earlier today via the magic of Blogger glitches), and my coworkers ran over with the AutoDefibrillator because it looked as though I was gasping for air. Do you have any idea how much it stings to be defibrillated when you're not fibrillating? (A lot, in case you were wondering.)

    I'm holding you responsible for that. It's all good, though. That kind of amusement doesn't come along every day. :)

    Nicely done, Carol! *applause*

    Btw, Edith Piaf is AWESOME.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hee! My favorite part is when you try to drink...and the caption: Crap.
    Hilarious!!!

    ReplyDelete
  8. So funny, and Piaf is pitch-perfect! You are one hilarious vlogger.

  10. I am cracking up! Your first vlog is hilarious -- way to go! I loved the head-smacking blooper (hope that didn't hurt!) and of course, Piaf fan as I am, I loved the music. When will the soundtrack be available?

    :D

  11. You are too funny. Worth the wait!
    THanks!

  12. Hahahaha....peeing myself.
    You are SO funny...you should get a commission for making book sales rise. I gladly give my virginity to any author you propose. You have made a faithful blog reader out of me, girl.
    PS I just nominated you in an award.

  13. Simon, I suppose I should point out the advantage of chatting with Carol at the time she posted this, I'll leave the top spot to you next time.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Awesome vlog! I'm still LOL. And, Simon, we designed a whole freakin' game around our inability to out-comment Jon at blogs. Welcome to the club!

    My favs on the vlog were the drink attempt, and the appearance of husband, as played by himself. Thanks for the laugh!

    ReplyDelete
  15. Congrats to the winners!

    And Carol, there's a little something over at my place for you. :)

    ReplyDelete
  16. Seriously twisted. But that's what makes it so fun. Thanks for sharing it.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Oh, so if that book writing thing doesn't work out...um, actress? Screenwriter? Comic relief?
    Thanks for the laugh.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Carol, you are awesome;) But I must remember to NEVER watch one of your vlogs late at night again. I almost woke the kiddos up when I got to the "biatch" part. Then, as I attempted to comment between spasms of laughter, blogger decided to spaz out on me. So that's why I'm commenting today.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hahaha, so funny!

    And good for you for not eating ALL the chocolate. I probably wouldn't have been able to stop myself!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Holy crap, that was hilarious! Best. Vlog. Ever. My stomach hurts from laughing so hard, especially with the drinking part...and the end. Kudos to your hubby, too.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Oh my god. This was freakin' hilarious!!! I think the best part was the vodka and sprite part. Crap.
    ROFL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. Very funny! Why are you writing when you could be an actress? :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Bravo on the vlog! It was awesome.

    ReplyDelete
  24. OMG! Fantastic!!! Love love love, especially the mask. Ha!

    ReplyDelete
  25. O.M.G!! That was hilarious!! And your poor, poor heard! Ouch. LOL. Too funny, Carol. You did a great job. And so did your hubby. :)

    Thanks again!!

    Sincerely,

    Book Thief #1

  26. That was so awesome and creative! A fabulous vlog debut. :)

    (You do know people will be expecting more now...)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Excellent vlog! It really made me understand your pain. :(

    ReplyDelete
  28. Carol, I randomly laughed about this at work like six times today! You have contributed to a good week for me, over and over!

    ReplyDelete
  29. Carol, although I love the vlog, thought you were daring for making it, watched it the whole way through hoping for nudity, it is your writing voice on this post(and others) that I think is so fantastic. You have a way with natural and funny!

    I love Tiny too. How big can he be?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Hahaha, this was crazy awesome!!! I feel your pain, which is why nobody gets my copies. Sorry folks. I would be all depressed if I had to give them away too :)

    Also, can I just say, I really do fear for Simon now. Like really. His work colleagues were very quick to defibrillate when he wasn't actually fibrillating. This makes me think maybe they secretly want to kill or at least inflict lots of pain on him. I vote we invest in a button he can press when they do this again (and I'm thinking they will) so somebody can TOTES rush to his rescue. Good idea?

    ReplyDelete
  31. This was so random, I loved every single second. Especially the part where we ruin your life.

    ReplyDelete
  32. LOL!! Awesome Vlog/Mini Movie. Just hilarious. You are a character, if only I could write them as good as you ;o) Congrats to the winners!

    ReplyDelete
  33. Lol. Funniest thing I've seen in a long time. Very entertaining. You are awesome, Carol! We need to replace those books. No one should sacrifice so much for their blog.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Ahahahaha! Awesome. Also, I will pray for you because no one can be expected to recover from such trauma without divine intervention.

  35. *Big Wide Grin*

    I'm imagining opening my package and finding a white chocolate candy bar with this HUGE bite taken out of it. I'm talking teeth indentures and everything. I'm sure I could even get a DNA match with the saliva left behind.

    Your vlog was hilarious and you will now be forever known as the Blog Biatch!

    ReplyDelete
  36. You totally rock! And you're brave too...you'll never see me staring in a vlog! Ever.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Bahahahahahahaha! I KNEW the chocolate would never make it. : )

    ReplyDelete
  38. That was fantastic! Good thing I'm not planning to vlog anytime soon because I don't know what I'd have to do (short of nudity) to match your effort!

    Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Who couldn't possibly love you!! You're so awesome and make people laugh until they pee, I of course didn't pee my pants or anything (*hides*)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Nice mask! :p Eating someone else's prize chocolate is always a difficult temptation to resist, I must say.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I love you guys. I truly do. Thanks for being so rockin awesome. I treasure all of your comments. And thank you for accepting me as I am; I swear that every time I fall off my rocker, I get right back up.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Too funny! I think Kim, Stina, LiLa, and the others are going to suffer from serious guilt forever.

    Perhaps your grandpa or husband will take pity on you and replace the books! :o) You can always dream...

    ReplyDelete
  48. Oh, what a relief...still , I'm glad I waited till everyone was in bed to play this...just in case, you know..

    ReplyDelete
  49. Ha ha ha!!!! Hilarious AND Brilliant! Thanks for making my day, Carol. Now if you'll excuse me, I must go touch up my mascara.

  51. Carolina--I have an award for you over at my blog...I know it should be an Oscar, but it's the best I can do. :)

    Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  52. So, I thought I'd email replied to everyone, but it turns out some of you don't have your Blog accounts linked up to your email, and for some of you, my messages have been sent out into the ether. Ugh. So sorry. I do always try to reply to your comments. But thank you so much, lovely peoples. You're terrific bloggers and beautiful friends. Thank you for stopping by and leaving such wonderful comments. I appreciate all of them, and I adore you for it.

    ReplyDelete
  53. I have now watched this enough times to be considered creepy. haha, joke's on you because you already booked your flight to come visit me ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  54. Wow, your blog looks way different than last time I was here! It looks great. :-)

    Uh, there was no nudity. Even your face was covered...

    :P
