Grab your reading glasses and a Code Red

Seriously, go grab a Code Red because my kids think this post is going to crash and burn!

(Get it . . . crash and burn!)

(And it will very likely self destruct in 24 hours.)

Pay attention to the fine print because I learned a new skill today.

Remember when I had the best day ever thanks to Jack Johnson?

And remember how weird he acted when I asked him about Curious George and the man with the yellow hat?

And remember how we became best friends and I then I realized that famous people are people too so I made a vow never to post photos of him again?

Well I lied.

We didn't really become best friends.

And I'm going to post more photos.

But in my defense, the photos were taken accidentally.

I kid you not.

He and his lovely cool-cat wife and his super cute l'il boys just happened to sit down right in front of me at my daughter's soccer game today so how could I NOT accidentally take photos of him, huh? huh? huh?

When the universe sets up a photo op, you don't ask why, peeps!

So after sitting behind JJ and his LC-C wife and SC L'il boys, I learned a thing or two that might not be common knowledge, like who he eats bananas with and who he voted for. Oh, and where he gets his special powers.

So why not share?


I think he should hire me to shoot his next 3-D album cover.



The man with the yellow hat is alive and well:

And finally (and most importantly):

(Now if that doesn't get me at least one more vote for BEST HUMOR BLOG I don't know what will.)

P.S. It's April's birthday today. Let's to cover her blog with streamers! Happy Birthday April!! LY!!

Oh wait, it's T's birthday too!(belated) And Shelle's anniversary. PaRtAy! LY T!! LY Shelle!!


Blogging Mama Andrea said...

First comment yeah! I love this post crash love it.

wesley's mom said...

I am so in awe of your accidental photography skills, and SO glad that you listen when the universe speaks.

Emily Anne Leyland ( Art-n-Sewl) said...

Omgosh...hahaha...I love it. Who gets a picture of Jack Johnson's undies??? Crash is who. You go girl!!!

Barbaloot said...

Wow. My accidental photos are usually just of the kitchen counter----I've never gotten one of a famous person! Nice work.

aniC said...

you saw jack's undies. and posted a picture. you're like the national enquirer.

Jami said...

wv = but er so Hahahaha! It said but.

So I'm thinking the close personal friendship may be out now that you've posted an unauthorized shot of his butt. Could be wrong on this.

I really like the cube of JJ.

Sandi said...

So you know how JJ promised to come and check out your blog sometime? THIS is when he is going to come.....I just know it. Then you will have some splainin to do about why you were looking at his okole! Ha Ha LOVE IT.
p.s. Did the team win?
p.s.s. Did you all know that today is April's

Heidi Ashworth said...

I like it better when you post at night when my brain is in gear and working. Or even the early afternoon. Yeah, that would be good. As for this first thing in the a.m. stuff, it's for the birds. (Way cute pics, though--so clever!) WV: anglona. Glow in the dark angora

♥georgie♥ said...

I Think you can sell the undie pic on ebay? Im just sayin...

sara said...

Wow, those are amazing pictures. I can't believe curious George was at the soccer game! You're so lucky! You got to see JJ and CG.
Nice paparazzi shots!

I am LoW said...

HAHA! You are one witty lady! I must know, how did you get Curious George in the pics???

Kristina P. said...

Clearly, you have best humor blog in the bag! I just woke up, and I got nothin' else.

T said...

If I could I'd run over there right now and vote for you AGAIN! I'm sure JJ will be thrilled to have his Eagles displayed for the world ;) That is, when he comes by to see what you've been up to...

My accidental photos are all pure black and of the inside of my pocket... stupid cell phone.

T said...

The word verifier agrees


Sher said...

I can't believe you took a pic of Jack Johnson's underwear! I'm pretty sure that was crossing the line.

nevadanista said...

See, this is why I never see JJ in the tabloids - because he's always at soccer games hanging out with his family, like a normal person. LOVE HIM!!!! And love you too!

verifier: flypo

Do you know, the other day, after I posted a comment about Barry Manilow, the next verifier was disco.

Lara said...

Forget Jack Johnson, you got pictures of CURIOUS GEORGE! Did you get his autograph, too? Or were you too shy for that?

April said...

My accidental photos are of my sis and her hubby "discussing" how much acreage to reserve at Hill Cumorah Pageant. She won. hehehe!

I know, you were just "cleaning" your lens on this shot right?'re in T-R-O-U-B-L-E!!!!

Melanie J said...

You're my hero. That dude is cool.

CaJoh said...

Are you sure his name is not Black Jack Johnson…

Did you ever find out if he read your blog yet?

robin said...

hahahaha!!!! you are toooo funny!!! I would soooo be not cool and taking pictures of celebrities if I had a camera and opportunity.

by the way... it's April's birthday today so hop on over and wish her happy birthday. I've also dedicated a post in her honor if you want to see some funny pics of her.

Happy birthday Affie!!!!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

ALOHA everyone!

I'm feeling a mixture of shame and . . . and, I can't think of anything else, just shame. You know how when you wake up after a school dance where you drank too much Code Red and you're like WOW! I got a little to uninhibited on the dance floor.

Oh dear. I have gone too far, haven't I? I have sold my soul to the blogging devil just because I could.

And for the record, I never took a picture of JJ's eagle power. I didn't notice it until AFTER (while I was cropping.)

The joke is even funnier to those few of you who caught my last JJ post before I edited it.

Okay, FIRST THINGS FIRST! HAPPY Birthday APRIL! Wahooo! Everyone go drop some cake and spankings in her comment box. LY APRIL!

Second, AniC is following me. I have a picture of a Fro-girl on my sidebar! The rest of you should be so lucky. hee hee

Yes, Jami, I think I've ruined any chances at JJ taking me seriously and asking me to go on tour with him. I bet he'll never write a song about me wanting to turn the whole world right side up either.

I've probably ruined my daughter's chance of ever being socially acceptable too. I feel so sorry for all people related to me or who happen to sit in front of my camera while I'm trying to take pictures of my soon to be socially ostersized daughter.

Oh, the shame . . .

Where's my integrity? And I haven't even gotten any more votes for BEST HUMOR BLOG out of it.

This may be a limited edition post. hee hee

I agree with Nevada, he is the nicest most normal family guy in the world. His kids are so cute and he is the cutest dad. And his wife is also so cute and nice.

I really can't believe what a nice uncle he is to go and support his neice at almost every soccer game. I totally love him.

And that's why I poke him in the eye. You guys know the drill.

And guys, Curious George IS as rascally in real life. I pinky promise.

Anjeny said...


Sorry, can't help myself. For once I am actually

Like I always said, you've got to be the most talented dummy ever to walk the planet. Who else would be able to accidentally take pictures of NOT just the famous person himself but his undie, too? You've cracked me soooo bad I even have proof of that crack..eheheh. See if you can read between the line too..LOL

Youngblood4ever said...

You wanna come photograph my life and make that really cool photo cube for me? Super awesome!

Lovin' the last pic... good to know what undies he wears! The company should send you $$$ for capturing that moment and giving them advertisement for their product... You gonna call or do I need to?

Martha said...

That is a cool cube. How did you do that?

I'm wondering if JJ will bring security guards with him next time he goes to a soccer game to make sure crazy people don't accidentally take pictures of him. Just saying.

April said...

Well at least we know he wears the question is...are they clean? I'm sure his mom would want to know!

Thanks for all the birthday wishes too! YOU ROCK!!!

Now I am off to work! YIPPEE!

Morgan and Derek said...

You should ask him if HE has a blog. Then you could stalk him more effectively. ;)

IWA said...

This is going to the top of my list of things that are currently in my short term memory that I have no use for .....American Eagle Skivies.....
truthfully... he's a surfer and im just pretty surprised that he wears any at all! LOL!

am i making this post more shameful?? sorry! once you put it out there... and then leave it wide open for any assumptions I cant help it! LOL!

BTW awesome photography...even if it was an accident... but you know what.. he's famous.. this just goes with the territory.... one of my really good friends sister is actually his publicist... Im so tempted to call her and tell her to jump on your site.... maybe now he'll get a contract with american eagle and then turn into a underwear model... all because of you accidental pictures!

IWA said...

BTW ... if im ever in the same room as you and you have your camera with you... My underwear is off limits! LOL!

The Crash Test Dummy said...

OMGOSH, IWA! I am so busted. I will so kill you if you call his publicist.

I dig, I dig, I dig my own grave.

All for a laugh!

Verifier says roussist

FTR, I'm not a roussist. I rouse things up too much, perhaps, but I'm not against it.

Nutty Hamster Chick said...

I am so impressed, my number one stalker status may be in danger. It's Ok we can be stalker chicks together. It will be more fun that way. You got computer skills girl, which are not quite as impressive as numb chuck skills but skills nonetheless.

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Hey peeps, can we all just stop saying underwear! It was just a waistband for goodness sake. A WAISTBAND. I'm all about Nacho Libre so I drew the connection. That's what I do. But PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE don't say the U word again.

(And IWA, if he get's a AEU, I mean AEW, contract, I get a cut of the $$$ Since I discovered him.)

robin said...

for the record, regarding April's "accidental" photo of Brett and I you have to understand a few things about my husband. I don't know what is more embarrassing for him

1. standing in line with me at Walmart while I price-match and use coupons

2. asking him to push me in a wheelchair when my knee is acting up (I had knee surgery in 2002)

3. saving seats for others at a crowded function

needless to say I get a little bugged that it is left to me to defend the seats when I am 5'5" and 107 lbs and he is 6'1" and 265 lbs. At least give them a good glare if they even GLANCE in our direction!!!

Sandi said...

bahaha I just wanted to see what would come up if I googled "jack johnson underwear" you know to see if he happened to google himself in that way if it would lead him right back to Y.O.U. Anyway- it lead me to a youtube video of him getting undies thrown at him right in the middle of singing banana pancakes...he looks at them for a minute and then says "are these underwear? haha so cute!

I am LoW said...

Crash- it was an accident, no matter what you got a picture of. It's all good! :-)

WV- looday... yes, it has been, a looday. Anyone else have a looday today?

robin said...

yes... I've been in the loo WAY too many times today. I know, I know, OVERSHARING. :P

SWIRL said...

I CAN'T believe you exposed his BLOOMERS!

I was totally laughing.. not just lol.. but spraying pepsi on my computer.. about curious george by his side...

too too funny!

SWIRL said...

I should really read all your comments before I posted.. I didn't even know you had banned the U-word...

The Crash Test Dummy said...

Sandi, how funny that you googled that. I am SOOOOOO glad that I don't pop up when the words JJ and U are placed together in the same sentence. PHEW! Thanks for checking. hee hee

Okay about the loo . . . and the looday. I'm not even going to ask, but it does make me feel less ashamed somehow.

And yet more ashamed.

Swirl, you're good, you said bloomers, but keep in mind it's just a waistband. hee hee

Amanda said...

love the photo cube...what program did you use?

Also a quiet little husband started following your blog today. He'll only put you in his ie favorites, he's not ready to come all the way out and be a true follower LOL I did get him on facebook finally, it's only a matter of time before he's blogging, too :)

You're addictive! Or maybe it's just that I talk more about blogging buddies than I do IRL buddies.

IWA said...

Theres nothing to be ashamed of... i really didnt want to embarrass you more... i was only going to call her because this is something i thought she would enjoy and just crack up at.. but my lips are sealed about the "U" word!

\/ (girl scouts honor) hehe.. i was actually only a brownine!

Shelle-BlokThoughts said...

LOL...OH to is that you wrote three posts in like two days? Girl you are running amuck with those creative ideas of yours...slow yourself down and take a sip of Jack Johnson and relax! lol!

I love that you got a picture of his should have sold that pic!

And your editing skillz are COMPLETELY AWESOME!!! Love them! you even have Curious George in your pictures...totally impressed!

I'm glad you accidentally took photos!
