Kris said...

I know, Brooke, but honestly, his belt doesn't match his outfit . . . ;)

gone said...

If he doesn't know what "wherefore" means...you don't want him!

TrueJerseyGirl said...

Who wants a dude named Romeo in this day and age anyway???

BamaGirl said...

Are you saying that you are too stubborn to leave your tower for some guy, and the guy is too lazy to come get you?

MoDigli said...

I see it as having someone right in front of you who is willing to be that "Romeo", but the girl is still (obliviously) searching and calling out: "Where is that prince?" ...
Brooke, maybe he's right under your nose and you don't even know it!!! :))

PS. Using the word verification has SHUT OUT the spammers from my site. Have you noticed the same?

Neil said...

I see this as a metaphor for Brooke's blog. It used to be so easy to write a comment. Now Brooke is "trapped" behind a towering castle named "spam word verication system" which makes it more difficult for her true Romeo to reach her blog and write something important. She calls for him and he wants to come to her, but he just can't quite make out if that is a "t" or an "r" in that squiggly nonsense word. Romeo adjusts his glasses. He wipes his glasses with his t-shirt. "I'm over here!" he screams. "I'm trying to get to you but I'm so darn tired of typing in these annoying words on all your blogger sites! When are you all going to switch over to Wordpress so I don't have to do this anymore!" But I persist in trying to reach Brooke's blog, because the beautiful princess is worth the struggle -- and that's what we Romeos are supposed to do, anyway.

Brooke - come to Cleveland. Lo Lo and I will totally hook you up with an awesome guy!

I know some great single spammer guys. Be thankful you don't have some dude stalking your blog that posts his parent's phone number and keeps begging you to date him. I'm just saying.

Kris said...

Neil might need some alone time.

Gordy said...

Maybe if you posted a different shot on your profile, you could find someone..if I was not otherwise engaged, I would be interested :-)

BTW, like the new word verification thing, is that something of your doing or blogger?

Brookelina said...

Beefy - MoMo got it right. I'm thinking there have been good guys right in front of me but I simply can't recognize them. I'm an idiot like that.


Kris - if they are pretty, I don't notice the clothes.

Jacob - if they are pretty, I don't notice the dumb.


TJ - it is a little on the "queer eye" side. Not that there's anything wrong with that!

Bama - MoMo actually nailed it, but there could be some element of truth to what you think too.....

MoMo - as usual, you know me so well! I know I have passed up many good guys due to my deep-seated shallowness. I need therapy.
And yes, the spammers are gone! Bastads!

Neil - you are so .....deep. Always finding the spiritual side to everything...even word verification.

Mel - the guys better be pretty damn hot for me to come to Cleveland!!!

Egan - please elaborate, sounds like a good story there.

Gordy - you don't like my profile pic? I'm wounded....
The word verification is a big "fuck you" to the spammers that are invading the blog world. Plus you can make fun phrases out of the letters!

not so fun writing on poop.

Egan said...

If you read a certain (non)blog you will see what I mean.

Why did I have to get an "x"?

Ruben said...

You're single because no guy has elevated himself to your glorious status. Damn! I should write Hallmark cards or something!

petrow said...

i'm totally feeling that cartoon, but it's the other way aorund, ican be in the middle of the street and smoe piece of trailer park trash will come up and hit on me , i think i need to change my look, why do sk8ers always get the cougers

yournamehere said...

I'm too busy laughing at Egan's comment to say much, except I like green olives on a pizza.

Brookelina said...

egan - please keep the stalkers away. Especially the ones that still live at home.

Prick - where ya been?! By the way, I have written about my grass is always greener complex in the past.

Ruben - you are truly a mood elevator.

petrow - Sk8ters and cougars. I think I am too old to get that reference.

YNH - ick.

Stupid x again.

yournamehere said...

Brooke, do you like that ghastly flaccid, greasy New York-style pizza that you fold-n-eat? Just wondering. No one has ever given me a compelling argument why New York pizza is good.

Übermilf said...

Brooke, would Chicago be more palatable than Cleveland? Because I know some great guys, too.

Hey, smell her pineapple nut etouffe

Gordy said...

I love the profile pic, but it is time we saw the real face behind the lounger..

Did you code the word thing yourself?

BamaGirl said...

Neil,
I like green olive pizza too!

Brooke, you know there are lots of single guys in Man Diego! You could come visit DD and me anytime!

Egan said...

Brooke: newsflash for you, all Canadians under the age of 35 live at home still. I am pretty sure you can verify this to be 100% true, no exceptions made. I guess it truly is a different country up there.

For a good time call 613-545-3218 and ask for Mr. Sobore. Make sure to be nice and clear since this moron can't take a hint.

your comic character is not anatomically correct...thats what's missing

Lo Lo Lova said...

You are way hotter than that little elf-like troll!

Brookelina said...

I know, he's not only troll-like, but he's got that bratty expression on his face!

I have no idea how the pizza conversation got started, but I'm pretty much into any pizza as long as it's well made.

Mr. Sobore? Is that a joke? It must be!

Egan said...

Nope, the guy posted his freaking parent's phone number on a blog for all to see. Call the number and see what happens. Have you ever seen anyone leave a phone number to their parent's house before on a blog comment? Didn't think so. This guy is missing a few marbles and some common sense.

ighwbr --> these are crap letters, but I will try. briwgh: damn I need a vowel.

Brookelina said...

I am NOT calling that number. That's all I need. Some freak tracing my call and making me his new girlfriend.

Why do women climb tall towers before they start looking for men?

yournamehere said...

The guy doesn't have a neck. His head rests on a pivoting base.

Kris said...

Ms. Brooke, I don't think my comment took earlier - I am from the northern part of our motherland - 30 miles due west of NYC. Represent.

"Terrence, Rub Mama EXtra-Y Hard, Gorgeous!"

Wow.

MoDigli said...

Ok, look Brooke... as much as i love you, trust me on the Cleveland thing. You DON'T want to come here. Sorry fellow Cleveland bloggers. But as a teacher in Cleve-burg, I know better than to lure poor Brooke into this mess!!! Jersey Shore is WAY better than Cleveland. (But Florida is not!) Anyway, Cleveland is mostly just guys like Drew Carey. Sports and beer bellies. Blah! Anyway, that's my one-sided opinion!

BTW, Bama, you cracked me up with Man Diego! hahahah! Too funny!

Neil said...

Cleveland? The Jersey Shore? Freezing Chicago? Are you people crazy for sending the glamorous Brooke to these podunk towns? You know where I'm leading to, baby, CALIFORNIA! I'll pick you up in my convertible at LAX and off we go down Pacific Coast Highway, the wind in our hair. (well, actually it's a 1995 Honda Civic, but we can open the windows. well, actually, we have to open the windows because I have no air-conditioning. well, actually, we can't really open the windows. You see, I have no windows, just paper bags from the supermarket covering the holes, but you're gonna love it here!)

Egan said...

I guess my previous comment got gobbled up. Brooke, when you get a little lonely, call me at 613-545-3218. I will surely keep you company, if you know what I mean. (wink wink, nudge nudge)

You Can't Afford Me said...

this was the best set of comments i've read on a blog today. omg! i'm totally laughing.

as for a guy living at home (with mom). hell no. i'm not falling for that one again.

i've never had green olives on a pizza, but that sounds really, really good. and now i want some pizza. spicy pizza with green olives.

and the picture reminds me of a guy friend i have (sometimes we have benefits, but mostly not). he was once telling me about what he wanted in a woman and i was sitting there, in my head thinking, "hello? i'm sitting right here. *waves hands* can't you see me???"

Brookelina said...

Sandra - please tell me the famous underhill doesn't really live at home with his parents. If that's true I'll be peeing myself every time I come to your blog.

Egan - did you get your parent's permission to post their number? Will they accept collect calls?

Neil - I'm not car snob, but you lost me after 1995 Honda Civic.

MoMo - Cleveland is so NOT on my agenda - no offense to my lovely girls from Cleveland! My brother lived there at one time. His secretary used to bring a loaf of white bread and a stick of butter to work everyday. That was her lunch. Or rather, part of her lunch. I know that doesn't represent all of the people of Cleveland, but I'm still not going there in this lifetime!

Kris - I love your verification phrase. LOL

Owl - so we scan the scenery for hot men. And ice cream shops.

YNH - the guy in my picture or the guy in yours?

jtndisb

just no dissin boy!

Anthony said...

I think the problem is you're scaring all the mans away by speaking in iambic pentameter.

The DWG said...

Nice blog. Good use of Teen Girl Squad type graphics. Lou Reed and Sheila E on the same page? Weird but good.

You Can't Afford Me said...

well, i guess you should probably read my blog close by the bathroom. because yes, it is true, he does live at home with his mother.

now that i look back, i just don't know why the clues didn't slap me harder in the face. duh!

Brian said...

That's not Romeo...That's his good looking, rich, snazzy dressing twin Homeo!

LeMorse said...

I'm over here!!!
hahahahahaha
priceless!

sunshine said...

Hope you didn't get hit too hard by Katrina! At least school's cancelled for Friday, I assume, right?

Neil said...

Isn't it weird when there is a storm, the first thing you worry about is that someone you know wasn't carried into the Atlantic Ocean? Anyway, that's why I'm here... Although I can assume that Brooke knows how to swim since she's always wearing that bathing suit...

Gordy said...

Hope you are OK down there in windy stormy Florida

Egan said...

My parents love collect calls. Give me a jingle anytime Brooke.

gone said...

This picture was pretty frickin funny! LOL

MoDigli said...

Brooke! ~ have you lost electricity? I hope you're okay and safe and that you'll be back soon! I'm thinking of you and hoping you're alright! :)

Damn that Katrina!

The Dummy said...

I think it means your romeo is a short, bald albino - no wonder you've chosen to stay single~! ;)

Kidding. But really, Brooke - it's easy to see why people would see you as a good catch. Whatcha waiting for? I'm glad you'd rather be alone than settle, so what's been the missing ingredient all these years?

'pffizird' was the magic word - I like it for some strange reason!

The Dummy said...

Hey, I just noticed Bama Girl's comment - Man Diego? lol - I guess that's pretty apt! You'd need a stick to fight off all the attention you'd get over here, Brooke!
