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!

Music, food and....hey did you just beat up Mike Rowe??

Happy (wet and cold) Wednesday, Snarklings! I was able to wrestle Jenn off the computer long enough to figure out a way to edit yet another video clip. I'm almost getting good at this.

Remember yesterday when I brought up Sir Mix-a-Lot in the video clip? Well apparently Mike's very attractive, very talented camera man, Antwan Flowers is also a bit of a wiseass. Not very savvy with the old phones because he couldn't get mine to work to take a simple picture. Then he had the audacity to tell me that THAT'S why I brought up Sir Mix-a-Lot in the first video, because mine was the phone he used in the Baby Got Back video. Ha. Ha. Stick to your work behind the camera, funny man. ;)

Kidding, we LOVED Antwan. He's going to be Jenn's new mentor as she branches out into the field of TV production. Or garbage collector. Could go either way right now.

Anyway, without further ado, here is the second installment of my up close and personal interview with Mike. Stay tuned for more, Snarklings!


And since we discussed Billy Joel's 2 songs, here they are. First, here's Elegy: The Great Peconic

And here is Billy Joel's 'Souvenir' which I LOVE that Mike mentions because it's a song that makes me weep, and weak in the knees when I hear it.

Stay tuned, Snarklings!! There's plenty more to come. Sneak peek? Ok.......Dancing With the Stars, and how Mike's not allowed back in Disneyland.

And if you missed the first installment, you can see it here!

    1. Patience is not my virtue. Give it to me now, baby.. give it to me now is my virtue. I hope that once we've watched these great vids clip by clip you will put the full one up so we can watch it all over again.. with popcorn. Who can eat popcorn in 5mins? You're worse than waiting for the next GoT episode. Where's my weed, I need to relax.

  5. Teri, I discovered you last night on Facebook in conjunction with Mike Rowe. I signed up for your blog. I love your interview with Mike Rowe. I'm from Baltimore and it's nice to see a fellow Baltimorean, who has something to contribute to our country. Mike seems to be a down-to-earth person. I like that about him. I liked him the first time I saw, "Dirty Jobs." Thank you for posting the interview. I look forward to more of the interview and to your blogs. You are a trip!

    1. Well thank you and welcome to Snarkfest! He was completely down to earth before, during and after our interview. This was my first ever interview with a quasi-pseudo-wanna-be-celeb and if I never do another one, this will be in my memory for a lifetime.

  6. "Is this about YOU?" Too funny! Good questions.

  9. Teri, love the interview so far, Can't wait to you post the rest of the video. You are truly my hero for going and doing something like this. This really shows your snarky and spunky personality that I have always loved about you.

    1. I have no idea what you're saying. Maybe I'm dense.

  11. I second a previous poster: How did you stay so cool and focused on your questions? Were you worried about being arrested if you let your true emotions show? I would have been a stuttering, hemming and hawing, babbling fool! Do you lose it later in the interview? I'm on pins and needles waiting for the rest! I am so excited that you got to do this! What's next? A POTUS interview? Oh, I forgot, no politics on your blog. Besides, he'd never be this funny! Maybe Stephen King...?

    1. Ter, it was like an out of body experience. I watch his mouth move and all I thought was "really? am I really sitting next to him? is he going to pull the mask off and it's Ashton Kutcher punking me??" I'm shocked that I was able to stay as relatively composed as I was. I DID, however, wrestle him to the ground and have my way with him after the cameras were off.

      I'd LOVE to meet Stephen King one day. I have met the guy who designed and forged the fence around his house in Maine, so that's sort of one degree of separation, right?

  12. So did you have maxi pads under your arms to keep the sweat from gushing onto the floor? You were so amazing and calm looking. I know you weren't on the inside. WOW!!!

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.
