Top Ten Reasons Why Gargantus and Melbo Are Great

Among my New Year's resolutions is to make good on a promise I made during finals last month. So without further adieu here are my top ten reasons why Melbo and Gargantus, respectively, are great.

10. Like I said - She comes through in the clutch (see promise above)
9. Gives a hell of a massage (be forewarned though... at times she's borderline sadistic. It's almost as though she enjoys seeing me writhe in pain)
8. Has truly come into her own as a cook... Nothin' like coming home to a Melbo cooked meal
7. Always up for spooning to a good movie after a long day (she's my cuddle-bunny)
6. Ever willing to accompany me on all sorts of little adventures (whether they be to a small art exhibit in Georgetown or an out of the way tavern in Munich)
5. Tolerant of (if not an active participate in running) what seems like another family hotel (my parents run the original)
4. Loves NPR (this makes her a true kindred spirit)
3. Drives me into school on occasion (even though it's a minimum of forty-five minutes out of her way, round-trip)
2. Dreams big (someday, among other things, we're going to own a spa and a small printing company)
1. Occassionally leaves improvised ditties on my voicemail sung to the tune of whatever song she's listened to most recently (these are then re-saved every forty days by me).

10. He's always good for a laugh... anytime, anywhere, about anything
9. Never have to worry about offending him
8. It's fun to "brag" about a friend who is professionally racing in Europe
7. Everyone needs some attractive friends, it helps one's self-image
6. Much to his own chagrin, he's pretty damn smart and one a hell of a writer
5. It's nice having a "hot" friend I can set girls up with
4. One of his nipples is rather large (see accompanying photo)
3. Someone I can hang out with in Europe… or at least talk about hanging out with, but never actually meet up with
2. His uncanny ability to turn virtually any comment into an inneundo
1. He's a great resource for helpful tips on dating and romance


* This list is in no way intended to be comprehensive... It is merely ten of the many reasons why Melbo is great
** This list may or may not be comprehensive... I didn't put much more thought into it after coming up with ten

marc, you are too good to me... and melbo, probably. I should have popped the question to you before you popped it to mel. At least we got to do some experimenting to broaden our horizons.

Marc said...

Got to or get to?

Gargantus said...

Both i hope. I'm thinking along the lines of a manage o three. It's some kind of french thing.

melbo said...

Boy do I feel spoiled! And well appreciated :) I had long forgotten I made that request. Now this is definitely my favorite blog.
I'm honored to share the limelight with Garg, but I'm shying away from the French action. Perhaps I'll feel different after the leather anniversary...

Gargantus said...

oh, sorry melbo, i guess i wasnt clear. When i said manage o three i had someone like dana G. Woo or sloyd in mind...

woo said...

I'm ready when you are...

This blog is kind of like one of those situations where everyone wants to say something, but nobody has, so I think I'll bring it up. Marc, were your intentions with this blog purely platonic, or are those serious homoerotic undertones there on purpose? Not that there is anything wrong with that, I just wanted to know if you are really into Gargantus, or what. I'm just trying to findout if I've been stepping on your toes....

Anyway, you can go ahead and answer in your own time. In the meanwhile, I'd be down for the manage o three. You know how to get a hold of me.

Gargantus said...

by the crotch of your pants?

melbo said...

Now I'm feeling left out, but it's okay. I know the only reason you had those guys in mind is because Marc didn't list the #11 reason that I'm great.

woo said...

You are two people in the sack?

Alice said...

I am relieved to hear that it is Garg with the ONE large nipple rather then Melbo. I think had it been the reverse I might have been a bit uncomfortable reading both of your blogs in the future.

Thank goodness it is only Garg’s booby that suffers from elephantitis - or is it elephant tities?

Marc said...

I think it would be best to let Garg field this query Alice, except to note that I'm unable to offer any comfort guarantees at this time. Visit this blog at your own risk ;)

Marc said...

TFB - I must admit that my initial intentions in posting this blog were at least consciously platonic... so either you spotted the tip of some heretofore unknown iceberg or you're emanating your own homoerotic undertones.

BA said...

Consciously platonic the way that Brokeback Mountain is consciously platonic? Its just a love story.

tigerfoxbear said...

The greatest love story ever told!

Gargantus said...

Alice, the proper term is "balony patty areolas"

Alice said...

Are you sure it isn't balonEy patty areolas Garg?
