It Just Got Better

I am so excited. My two favorite men on this planet now have their own blogs, and I am seriously giddy about it. I almost want to keep these treasures to myself, but no, that would be selfish. I feel I must share the good news with you so that you can be giddy too.

My Adam has started a blog! Okay, remember the dinner conversation I made mention of? His posts are sure to entertain you in similar (though hopefully a bit censored) fashion. Adam is the middle child of seven, but the oldest boy. The story goes that his mother sent in a family portrait for some acting call or talent tryout, but only Adam was selected. The little tiny guy with the bright green eyes, amidst a sea of dark brown eyes. He booked his first commercial when he was about eight years old, for McDonald's, and has done over 100 national commercials since then, along with various TV and movie roles over the last 28 years. I love it that he is super modest and humble about all the experiences he's had. He doesn't even have copies of most of his work, and has to be pushed to talk about the cool people he's met or the opportunities he's had. I've only begun to learn that he's been on every show from Webster to Home Improvement. But he shares a tiny bit in his opening post. He is probably the funniest guy I've ever known, and he's funniest when he's not trying to be. He also has a deeply tender and sensitive side, and is thoughtful and philosophical. He never takes himself too seriously, and can laugh at himself with the best of them. I think if you bookmark his new blog, you'll find yourself going back for more. It's my pleasure to share him with you for your entertainment.

And my Dad is blogging too! Almost daily, he gives us puns and rhymes, wisdom and wit. My Dad, as I've blogged about before, is the smartest, wisest, most interesting person (not man, person!) I know. I adore him. I'm so proud to have even a smidgen of his DNA. He began his blog several weeks ago, in which he keeps us laughing, thinking, and scratching our heads, asking "what the?". He has a thoughtful worldview, and a tried and tested testimony of the gospel of Jesus Christ. He is always seeking, always learning, and mostly always laughing. (I can hear him now!) He will post on everything from family stories to his gardening adventures, archaeology, and everything in between. You should definitely become a loyal reader. You'll learn something and be highly entertained, I promise. Oh, and scroll down to the bottom of his blog and check out his comic "George and Georgie". Yeah, he never stops. It must be exhausting to be in his mind, but oh, so fun!

Okay, so go on now, go say hi! Tell 'em Jenna sent you! Give them both a blogland welcome!

How exciting! It's such a neat experience to get the extra insight that blogging offers into the minds and hearts of people we already know.

Yay!... If you want a copy of Adam on Las Vegas, we have it! :)

Jenna Consolo said...

Hey Megan! The Las Vegas we actually do have. But I would kill for all the earlier stuff. I'm still waiting to catch Home Improvement and Third Rock, which I know are still running in re-runs because royalty checks show up now and again. But I haven't seen them. Thanks for saying hi to him!

Jenna, Most Gracious Sovereign Majesty!
Would you be my public relations manager? At least, could you lead my defense team at the Final Judgment? I don't think I can live up to your adulation, though I don't want to discourage you. Thank you for casting your bread in my direction. I think I'll give blogging one more month, and if I don't have 3 steady readers by then, I'll open a penny arcade instead. If George & Georgie must die, so be it. I love you.
Love,
The Ancient of Weeks

Ok...seriously? Your dad also! I'm jealous. I would swoon to know what's inside my dad's head! LOL
So funny about Adam. People are so interesting! I love blogging!
I bet your the #1 blog stalker for them for sure. I know I would be!
Hugs!
