Welcome to Snarkfest

Welcome to my snarky corner of the web. Join me as I discuss everything from wine to chocolate. There may be a few other topics mixed in there too. I talk a bunch about my amazing offspring, 19 and 17. I sometimes go on and on about my secret crush on the amazing Mike Rowe. I talk about things that irritate me or things that make me happy. Sometimes I just talk to hear myself talk. Feedback is always appreciated but please make sure it's respectable. No nudity or profanity. I'm the only one allowed to be profane. But any and all snark is welcome and appreciated!

Hoping for An Interview With the Dirty One....

I'm sure you've all read my post about how I am the Mike Rowe Expert, right? Well I've got a confession to make. I'm not really. People seem to THINK I am, but I'm not. I know what everyone else on the internet knows. Or thinks they know. I may know just a teensy bit more than the average fan because I used to post frequently at the Dirty Jobs Message Board before the proverbial shit hit the proverbial fan for the Dirty Jobs 150th Episode Party. My friend Theresa was fortunate enough to attend and I was so jealous I wanted to vomit thrilled for her I could hardly contain myself. Knowing that she was as huge a fan of Mike's as I was, and having met her and knowing she was such an awesome lady, I was honestly happy for her. But lots of hurt feelings happened and the board was never the same. At the time though, the really cool thing about being a member of the message board was that Mike used to post there all the time. And he'd answer questions, talk about his "sweetie by the bay" and trade banter with the folks who put him where he was and kept him dirty. The other cool thing was that some of the stars of Dirty Jobs also used to post there (Kristen the snake handler, Farmer Bob from Vegas to name a few). Ah those were the days.

Nowadays, Mike posts frequently to Facebook. He even responded to my post on his wall (the one where people think I'm an expert). So it just stands to reason that since people THINK I know my Mike Rowe facts, I should probably try to learn more. I hate to let folks down.

So here's what I'm hoping is going to happen. I'm going to post this blog. Then I'm going to share it on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, Mike's FB wall, bathroom walls, telephone poles, cork boards at grocery stores and everywhere I can find on the net to get Mike's attention. And I'm going to beg him for an interview. It won't be a stale old interview on what is favorite Dirty Job was, or how he feels now that he and Ford have parted ways.

No this interview will be like speed dating. I'm going to try to ask as many off the wall questions as I possibly can as if I've never heard of him. There may be some QVC references, possibly some questions about his old haunts in Maryland, but it won't be a journalist questioning a celebrity. It'll be a fan girl woman questioning a hott guy. (the rule on the old DJMB was that when we referred to Mike as hot, we always put an extra 'T' on the end for good measure.).

How about it Mike? Can I interview you? Please? Could be via Skype, FB message, email, phone, carrier pigeon, smoke signal, Google+ Hangout (if I figure out how the hell that works). Or it could be face to face, in April, chaperoned of course, when I buy the first round. Please let me know. I'm sure the 7 lovely people who read my blog would be very happy for me if you granted me an interview. Hell, I'll even add an extra "T" to hott when I'm referring to you. What do you say?

And what do YOU, dear readers, want to know about Mike Rowe? Fire away with your questions and if (when) I get a chance to interview him, I'll ask him what inquiring minds want to know!

  1. YES! Interview him. Ask him if he has a favorite cleaner or if he just throws away the clothes after doing an extremely dirty job. Also, does he have a great way to get red Georgia Clay stains from baseball pants - or does he agree with me that letting the opposing team see some stains lets them know you mean BUSINESS, like this isn't your first rodeo.
    Always been a fan, would love to hear what he has to say, if you get face to face I will be envious but happy for ya!! :)

    1. If I get a face to face, I'll have to find an industrial strength cleaner because I'll make a mess in my pants. Seriously. And if I DO get the interview, I will most definitely ask him your questions! Thanks Jolie!

  2. Hey Teri. Here's a question that my curious (Dirty) mind wonders about. Ask him (Boxers Briefs, or Commando) I've got a pretty good imagination and have imagined him in all three many many times, and let me just say DAMN! He's hottttttt! ;)

  7. this blog is Fleurdelys (Theresa) approved, Mike.

    Yeah, sorry Teri, I probably just chased him away. I'm not sure how long that restraining order was good for. Ooops!

    1. The man has met you and didn't run away. That, in itself, speaks volumes. If he's brave enough to hang with you for a few hours, 30 minutes of my time shouldn't be all that scary. Thanks for approving the blog, Fleur, you are my favorite flower! :)

  8. Good luck with your stalking, um, reaching out to Mike. Maybe he loves his fans creeping, um, following his career. I hope you get that kidnapping, um, interview with him.

    Good luck Teri! :-)

I do read all comments and try to respond to them. Unless you're trying to get me to visit your website: Cheap Louis Vuitton Bags. Then you can go pound sand.
