Stolen post from an alternate blog of mine

Okay, I know that you all want to know how many blogs I have had. Lessee? It has been about seven. I used to just come up with new concepts on a whim and blog on that concept until I got bored. Lately, I have been doing a lot of staring into space. I try to email people back. I try to visit your blogs and leave comments, but I end up staring at the screen and then realize that 30 minutes have passed. I have been dealing with insomnia again. It seems that sitting in front of the TV has been more relaxing than anything else. I never knew that QVC could be so soothing.

Anyway, this post is from my own private blog (made solely to amuse myself) called, "(My name)'s Blog: Shattered dreams & come from behind sports drama. Also, I'm making predictions on how Huewy Lewis will save the world." I haven't got to Huey Lewis or any of the other stuff mentioned. But, I did interview Scott Baio of "Charles in Charge" fame. Here's my first post of that blog. I have swapped in "Grunt" with my real name.

Welcome all to my Seventh Blog: Special guest appearance by Scott Baio
Greetings all! Grunt here, taking precious time away from my main blog, Grunt Ahoy!, to welcome you to my side project devoted to "has been" actors, runner-up prom queen spies, and my devotion to the cause of cheese and beef jerky awareness--did you know that they make a great after school snack?

We have a special guest with us today: Scott Baio.

Grunt!: How have you been, Scott?

Scott Baio: Just terrific.

Grunt!: Can I call you "Charles in Charge"?

Scott Baio: What, you want to call me after a character of mine?

Grunt!: Yeah, is that a problem?

Scott Baio: Well, it is a bit weird, but alright.

Grunt!: Charles in Charge, how long has it been since you've last smoked crack in an alley?

Scott Baio: Wait, what did you just say?

Grunt!: Oh, I'm sorry. Was the crack question insensitive?

Scott Baio: Yeah...well, no. That's not the point. You called me "Charles in Charge".

Grunt!: Yeah, "Charles in Charge". I thought you were cool with that, no?

Scott Baio: I thought you were just going to call me "Charles".

Grunt!: Now why would I do that?

Scott Baio: Because that is the character's name, dip wad!

Grunt!: But, I don't wanna call you that; that's just stupid.

Scott Baio: Well, I don't like being made fun of and I feel that you are making fun of me by calling me "Charles in Charge".

Grunt!: Well, I'm sorry. I didn't know that you would take offense to being called "Charles in Charge", one of the best TV shows ever.

Scott Baio: Yeah, well, I do.

Grunt!: Do you want me to stop calling you "Charles in Charge"?

Scott Baio: Yes, please!

Grunt!: Okay then, Scott.

Charles in Charge: Much better.

Grunt!: Okay, now that's settled we can move on. Have you ever had a threesome with the gir....

Charles in Charge (interrupting me): Hey! What's that there to the side?

Grunt!: What?

Charles in Charge: That on the side. You are typing my name as "Charles in Charge".

Grunt!: Is that a problem?

Charles in Charge: You know, I've had enough. I'm outta here, ya shmuck!

Grunt!: Ooooh, temper temper. Hey, where are you going?

Charles in Charge (flips me the bird).

Tune in next week, folks, as I interview Hogan's Hero star, Bob Crane's corpse. Until next time: ciao bella!

This whole Blogitis Syndrome seems to be going around with everyone. I'm sorry you are suffering from insomnia again. Insomnia sucks. Just know that while we are all having difficulty connecting online, I am thinking of you. I'm going to have another cup of coffee now so I can get through the day myself.

goldennib said...

I can't believe that I used to think Charles In Charge was cute and cool a million years ago.

Outdoorsy Girl said...

I'm no stranger of the insomnia myself. I just fell asleep about 4 hours ago and here I am downing coffee as a sleep substitue so I can make it through the day. Ugh.

I don't know why Charles in Charge was such a prick to you. At least you weren't calling him Chachi. We all know he wasn't the one in charge when Joanie was around. Some people are so ungrateful.

Gentleman-hobbs said...

So you've finally come out into the open eh? Out of the closet so to speak that would explain the regular friday feature
Just taken the piss out of the baftas... should cheer you up.

Claire said...

Heheh, I love your random multiple blogs - I've cut myself down to one cos I'm far too lazy to keep up with any more!


Karyn said...

Let me think... I think I have seven running at the moment. Urgh. I just broke out in a little anxious shiver from the pressure.

ANYWAY. I'm with Outdoorsy Girl - wtf - you didn't call him Chachi, which is pretty funny; I think he needs to lighten up! This post made me laugh my ass off though.

Hang in there Grunt - we're all just plodding along doing the best we can...

Kayla said...

Haha..love your Charles in Charge bit.
QVC is surprisingly soothing..I know just what you mean!

If it's video valium you're after, try golf. Picturesque, soothing, green. Guaranteed to induce an uncanny sense of well being, if not a coma, within minutes.

Bugs said...

Ohhhh Bob Cranes corpse! I'm hangin' baby !
Love Ian Drury and The Blockheads too -are you my male alternative? :P

Christielli said...

Can we request special guest stars?? Even special fictional guest stars? That would be cool, dude!

Sun Follower said...

For insomnia I suggest watching "Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip" - rinse and repeat.

The Grunt said...

Nessa~ Blogitis is serious. Yes, I too used to think he was the shit back then.

O-Girl~ HA! Chachi, who could forget that?

G-Hobbs~ Your humour always does cheer me up, mate. I even used Brit spelling on that one.

Claire~ Good choice. Stick with this one. My other's are where I experiment without losing my Grunt fan base. I need proving grounds for my material.

Karyn~ Maybe I will call him Chachi, now. Thanks for thinking of me.

Kayla~ I plan on doing more. It is my Abbot and Costello.

Joe~ Golf it is, and no pesky female golf to excite and confuse me, either.

Bugs~ I may be. Glad you liked the video, and that interview with Bob Crane's corpse is just around the coroner!

Will anybody read/get that last line? I hope so.

Christielli~ Yes, I would love to do that. Email me.

Sun~ I will have to do that.
