Day 228 of 365 days.

Meet my pundit friend Stephen. I am Stephen’s black friend. I’m also Stephen’s photographer friend, his artist friend, his professional wrestler friend, and today, his sick friend. I have a sore throat and a bit of a headache, and I’m really trying to fight it because I have another job interview to do tomorrow. I was able to struggle through today’s with the headache, so hopefully I can do tomorrow’s too. That said, I was by no means feeling creative today. Luckily, on last night’s Colbert Report, Stephen asked all if his fans to take a picture with him. And today, through the magic of DVR, I was happy to oblige.

    @Travelinjim: I actually do have a headache, but I’m hamming it up for the picture. It’s all part of the "being Stephen’s Black Friend" gimmick. The disinterest is an ongoing joke on the show.

    @Mikey aka DaSkinnyBlackMan: thank you. I am quite fond of it. get one here.

    Love Stephen Colbert!!

    I feel like crap, and I’m hoping it is allergies although really, what’s the difference? Crap is crap. 😉

    Best of luck with the interviewing!

    Look how excited Stephen is to have you for his Official Black Friend! He should be. Hope you feel better soon. Can Steph make chicken soup? Let me know how tomorrow goes.

    @lrayholly: to be fair, he looks like that when he take pictures with his jewish friends, his gay friends and his midget friends too.

    Haha, I laughed out loud when I saw this one. 🙂 Recently, I took a bunch of pictures of me with my husband. He started hamming it up and used the "Steven Colbert’s black friend" face in one of them, which ended up being my 365 for the day. I didn’t know what he was doing when I took the photo, or I would have had a more appropriate facial expression (although in my case, I’d be his fat friend or something). 😉 Anyway, I liked the picture even if I wasn’t doing it "right", just because it was obvious we were having fun.

    Feel better, and I actually thought this was quite creative. I know you feel bad but you looking tired and sick next to Colbert’s over the top perkiness is a nice dichotomy.

  13. March 27, 2007 at 10:39 pm

    This is FLAWLESS

  14. March 27, 2007 at 10:49 pm

    hahaha Colbert rocks!

    it sounds like you have what i have – i hope you get better soon!

    Seen on your photo stream. (?)

    @SydB42: what would be great is if I actually got a chance to appear on the show because of this project and could take the real picture. I still don’t understand why the media hasn’t contacted me yet. I’ve inspired thousands of people all over the planet, dammit.

    @Kungfukitten: thank you. Hopefully the feeling sick translates to a look of disdain for Colbert. That’s how its supposed to look in those pics.

    @Jack Scoresby: thanx.

    @k.e.b: yeah, me too.

  16. March 27, 2007 at 10:59 pm

    wow – the best part is that it’s cropped right to the tv’s frame. well done! he cracks me up…

  17. March 27, 2007 at 11:01 pm

    @khvafl: yeah, I thought that added a little something. Thank you.

  18. March 28, 2007 at 7:44 am

    Haha, this rules.

    @driveliekjehu: thank you.

    i liked the other day on the colbert report how it was all about canada. and eaelier this month he even mentioned my city!

    "In March 2007 Colbert in his segment The Word, implied that Windsor, Ontario was one of the worst places in the world. This did not please Windsor mayor Eddie Francis who said, "When people slam the city, I don’t laugh. I know it’s a joke, but I’m very serious about Windsor’s brand.""


    just for the record, eddie francis is a dick anyway.

    @avolare: I always find it highly amusing. I’m watching tonight’s on DVR right now, in fact. In any case, it was really nice of him to give me a 365 freebie yesterday.

  22. March 29, 2007 at 4:57 am

    Love that t-shirt, very subversive…

  23. March 29, 2007 at 11:44 am

    @SU365: What? you don’t think Voldemort would make a good president?

    @PhotoKat: thank you.

  26. March 29, 2007 at 7:48 pm

    that’s hilarious! our roommate watches him a lot, which is about the only time that I catch him (since i don’t really watch tv too much…unless it’s blue’s clues or something!).

    i think it’s hilarious that he asked people to take a photo with him…wish now that i’d seen that one!

  27. March 29, 2007 at 7:59 pm

    @pi c’s: yeah. I thought Steph would use it, but her minds been on other stuff, lately. I figured it was too good an opportunity to waste. I should really mail it in to the show.

  28. April 3, 2007 at 8:51 am

    omg!! this is awesome!

  29. April 3, 2007 at 9:41 am

    @Ivania*~: Really? You think? I thought it was kind of a lazy idea. But thankyou.

  30. April 16, 2007 at 3:05 pm
