King of Fools
I mean - or so I've heard. Clearly, I'm the court jester......at best.
Another Emmy awards show come and gone. Another nick in the already fragile fragile friendship of Blobby and Magic Mike XXS.
We're hanging by a thread, people. A thread!
Mr. Mike called me a 'chicken' - well, kind of - and this is that thanks I get for playing.
He was traveling westward (ho!) so we couldn't live chat through the broadcast, but he messaged me here and there. I think he was very very very upset about the death of Leisel Von Trapp - though he'd never admit it.
Many-a-time, in these contests, Mike and I tie....or are at least close. This time? I wasn't even in the same solar system, let alone the same orbit.
Granted, I went with what I wanted to win versus what I thought would win. It's not an excuse, you can check my last Friday's post. It said so right there.
Mike went in to win.
It seems he's all about strategy.
Outstanding Drama Series - Mike
Outstanding Comedy Series - Mike
Outstanding Drama Actor - Mike (again)
Outstanding Drama Actress - Neither
Outstanding Comedy Actor - Mike
Outstanding Comedy Actress - Both
Outstanding Limited Series - Mike (jesus!)
Outstanding Reality Competition - Neither
Outstanding TV Movie - Blobby (yay?)
Outstanding Supporting Actor, Comedy - Mike (oh, for the love of g-d!)
Outstanding Supporting Actress, Comedy - Neither
Outstanding Supporting Actor, Drama - Neither
Outstanding Supporting Actress, Drama - Neither
I can't spin this one. Let's face it - this was a humiliating loss.
I mean, this is a Dukakis loss. A Mondale loss. A Susan Lucci loss. (I had to use that last example to put it in a context that Mr. XXS would understand.)
Maybe I should have insisted on doing all 113 categories. I might have stood a chance.
It seems some sort of baked goods are coming Mike's way.
I'm a man of my word, and he knows it. But we never said a thing about timing. The job has been busy lately, and our new addition (not New Edition, Mike!) might keep me busy until I have time this weekend to bake.
He will see something coming his way next week.
