I was thinking that the stare-a-thon could use a little more pizzaz. So I dusted the sparkles from my brow and said… “Why not make it a little more musical?”
So today read the following with the sweet beat of the 12 days of Christmas:
On the 8th day of the stare-a-thon I would like to share with thee a Bird staring at Isabel by some trees:
He did 7 hours of staring’
With 6 passing tourists…
5 DAYS IN A ROW!!!!!
With 4 bathroom breaks,
3 parked cars…
2 beatty eyes…
At ONE Isabel holding flowers!
I’m expecting Isabel to be questioning my brain thoughts after reading this. And for everyone who is severely confused by a holiday made to stare at a stranger… I should have a doodle up later today too. And a story, a story about things that can only happen to me.
As a safety reminder I just want to say that I know that the stare-a-thon is very exciting. But please don’t hurt yourself while trying to get that upclose stare. You may not really be there in person. And I cannot send tylenol to everyone who whacks their head on their computer screen.
This is mostly because I use advil and don’t give out my address to strangers. Be safe starers.
Some people are very old school when it comes to staring at the most treasured Isabel in California. They absolutely refuse to follow the new stare in numbers campaign and still are staring at her all stealth like:
They just sit around her neighborhood trying to find the best angles of her to get their stare on. They still sit there for days at a time only eating cheetos, barely blinking. I hope this doesn’t scare you Isabel… but they are doing it right now.
Today is a great day. Because almost everyone around me has it off… including me. It’s a day to spend with your family enjoying family things. And what better family bonding moment can there be than to stare at Isabel?
So this Thanksgiving while you are sitting there eating that third slice of pie… give it a go and multi-task some Isabel staring time into it.
And remember the most important thing, you don’t have to stare alone:
And this week I heard the best news I have heard in a long time. My friend the astonishing, marvelous, and phenomenal-on-her-way-to-becoming-a-doctor, Isabel is ENGAGED! And she’s getting married to David, who is equally as wonderful as her (it’s a really hard contest to enter though. I mean, I could write adjectives about Isabel’s awesomeness until I pass out from giggling).
Just in case for some of the readers who need a reminder of David…remember him as my captive studio audience? Well now that Isabel and David are going to be a unified front, I will have 2 people in my designated audience! That for all you math wizards is double. I have double the fans now:
So basically the day they get married is going to be one of the best days of the year besides Leif Erikson Day and the Isabel Stare-a-thon. I really hope they get married during Nov. 2oth to December 20th as that is the time I have made up a month-long holiday about Isabel. It’s basically begging to have your wedding betwixt it!
So finally, and simply… Congratulations. I hope you have so many years of incredible joy and the most fun two people have ever had in the history of people having fun! Remember everyday can be the best day you’ve ever had.
