I've wanted to start a blog for some time but was stuck at the very beginning. What to write!? It's easy to get caught up in trying to be original or funny, touching or informative. Should I document fashion trends? Post various photos? Satirize U.S. politics? My search continued until recently...the first Tuesday. A close someone and I found ourselves with a completely free day. We'd planned coffee with computers, a trip to the mall, a meal here and there, a Monty Python movie, and some hot toddies. We're fun as hell! Anyway...from this day, Tuesdays with Jonny arose.

3/8/11- It's fat Tuesday y'all!

I couldn't choose just one this week.  These were two halves of what felt like a productive day.  Nothing says "get your motor running" like a cup of hazelnut coffee from Panera while I tap out a story on my Mac.  After that I found myself at the gym for chest day.  The second picture was the view from where I sat and sipped my delicious protein shake.  Peanut butter banana.  Fat Tuesday is all about beverage intake.  Isn't it?

Text #1:  "It's Fat Tuesday and I'm giving up the fast food this year and therefore indulging in greasy goodness!"

Wait...Nick...I think you may be a bit confused.  It looks like you treated this now ravaged tray as a death row inmate would his last meal.  I won't lie and say my mouth isn't watering a little.

Text #2:  "Note the anthem singer!  I got to sing for the Women's History Month Celebration.  Not only did I get to sing on T.V. but I got to hear from some of the most inspirational women of the Tampa Bay. It was an amazing ceremony.  (Doesn't hurt that I also got another gig out it!)

There are quite a few jokes that come to mind, but since the majority of my readers are women (literally all of you I think) I have nothing funny to say.  It's a great honor to have been featured for such an important event.  Congrats on a job well done Danielle : )

Text # 3: "I spent today editing for Hollywood Wasteland.  We have 3 episodes out and we release our 3rd minisode tomorrow.  Check it out at  Hollywood Wasteland"

Leave it to my enterprising (cheap) buddy Caley to figure out free advertising.  Still, it's an artistic endeavor and I stand completely behind it!  They're trying to raise money to produce the rest of the season so be sure to check it out!

Text #4: "This is my Tuesday...sucking down the green juice!!"

That looks like something that oozed out of the Toxic Avenger.  It's literally glowing on your knee Kathleen.  If I see you in a month of so and you're sporting a set of bulging green muscles...I'm gonna say I told you so!

Text #5: "Hanging out with Kathy Griffin"

....stalking Kathy Griffin?  I think she's looking right at you Yvette.  You have to be more careful.  Isn't the restraining order still in effect?  Although, I have to say you are keeping true to your status as middle-aged gay man!

Text #6: "Voice lesson with Lucas at Ripley Grier"

Hahahahahaha!!  It's hard to know whether that 40oz of the Silver bullet is solving problems or creating them.  Fun fact?  Did you know that we don't have 40's in Florida?  We only have 32oz's.  That just makes me want to buy 2 32oz's (that's 64 for you math majors) in an act of defiance.  Take that law makers!

Text #7: "Ahhhh Tuesdays with Jonny.  Florida Strawberry Festival."

Leslie, that does not look like strawberries.  That looks like...Babe...if babe were a Blue's Brother.  Very disturbing!

Text #8: "Tuesday"

Erin and Damion have some weird twilight zone stuff going on at their house.  You are traveled through another dimension.  One ruled by dinosaurs and killer whales.  But who is pulling the strings?  Could it be a crafty young man named Ashyr?  The world may never know. 

Text #9: (no subject)

Oh my, Luanne.  The things you ladies will do to celebrate Women's History Month!  If we wired you up we could get free cable!

Text #10: "Agnes dreaming of beaches"

Agnes may or may not be Jess' geriatric alter-ego...  but I'm not one to tell.  Either way, I'm digging these beaches of Agnes, though it's tough to picture her walker and butt pillow in the sand!

Text #11:  "Hey Jonny is it too late?  It has been a dark and busy day."

It appears that you're having a close encounter of the third kind.  Perhaps the specter that brought Erin and Damion's dino and Shamoo together is illuminating your night sky!?  You guys should team up for some serious ghost busting!

Final Thoughts

Well folks, I half expected racy, bead grabbing Mardis Gras madness.  Allow me to commend you for going on with your Tuesdays and not buying into the hype... ya wall flowers!  Just joking.  This goes to show that conforming to expectation only limits creative output.  This is the first Tuesday that there haven't been duplicate activities.  I'm pretty psyched about that.  As cool as it is too draw a crowd, it's equally cool to march to your own beat!
