Today is Wifesy’s birthday and I’m super excited for it.  I have an entire day planned for her and I can’t reveal it just now because I fear she may read this blog whilst I make her breakfast in bed.  Yes, that’s what I plan to do.  We are nauseating like this when it comes to our love.  I’m even going to carve a rose out of a tomato.  Hopefully, it won’t look like a blood clot instead of a rose.  Chances are 50% blood clot, 50% rose.  I don’t have a breakfast tray as of yet, either.  So, I may have to give it all to her on a plate, which may get messy, but I don’t care if she gets egg yolk all over the bed.  I love her and today she can do as she goddamn well pleases.


Will it look like this? Doubtful.

I’ve written this post in advance and it’s going to be the first post that I try using the ‘publish on’ feature.  So, hopefully it actually does publish said post on April 20, 2012 and I didn’t inadvertently schedule it for April 20, 2020.  You’ll all be like, “Where’s Sweet Mother?” and I’ll be angrily working my way through Wifesy’s birthday itinerary while going, “I hit schedule on, schedule on – what the feck happened?!!”  If it doesn’t function, you’ll hear me screaming from the Hollywood Hills and beyond.  It will put a cyber-thorn in my side for the rest of my day.  Anyway, if you’re reading this and commenting all is well.  Thank God.


Today, it is my distinct pleasure to introduce a blogger who I actually know in the flesh.  I’ve actually laid my real eyes on him, more than once, and we’ve actually had conversations that didn’t happen over a computer.  They happened in PERSON.  I know, I know, how terribly proletarian of me.  But, I digress.  Here is the truth of the matter — I LOVE THIS GUY AND I LOVE HIS BLOG.  He’s new here and he doesn’t know anybody and I like introducing cool people at my party, so please welcome:




Brad is a comedian and a funny one.  He ran a great little show in Los Angeles that I had the pleasure of doing twice.  I even wrote a post about his show when this blog was brand new.  You can read that post here.  I actually met Brad years ago when I came into LA for a short trip and wanted to get some stage time.  Brad was kind enough to allow me on his show and I had a great time.  That must’ve happened close to ten years ago by now.  Cut to the present day, I move to Los Angeles and Brad was as nice to me recently as he was back then.  This is no small feat in the comedy business and in Los Angeles in particular where people tend to be less human and more resume.  Brad never treated me as such.  He was all human, all the time.  So unique is Brad that he actually rode nothing, but the bus in LA for years.  Riding the bus as a form of transport in LA and not losing your humanity is akin to being held in Sing-Sing’s solitary confinement and giving your jailer a flower upon release.  I don’t know how in the hell he did it.  Currently, Brad has relocated to his parent’s place.  He is working the road from there.  Brad has returned home to look after his dad.  I’m not sure he’d want me to tell you that, but I’m doing it because I think it shows how amazing Brad is and how selfless.  I’m not sure how many people around these here parts would do that, but I suppose they’re not Brad.  Brad is big hearted, hugely funny, and a little bit of a superhero.


He is after all… CAPTION AMERICA.


Caption America is Brad’s blog and that’s where you should go to follow him.  His blog is just hilarious.  Brad takes pics of LA and his travels and captions them, plain and simple.  I dare you to work your way through his blog posts without laughing.  It’s impossible.  I lost it repeatedly over:  the 7-11 pizza boxes and the capri pants and the Captain A hat.  You will too.  Take some time, whittle your way through the images and the humor, and then show Brad your love.  Trust me, I’m not making his day by doing this, I’m making yours.


Love and such,


Sweet Mother
