internet sensation

Only twice have I been out and someone has recognized me from my blog. It both flattered and befuddled me both times and I'm quite sure they were VERY isolated incidents. I am not chocolate rain guy or keyboard cat... I am not an internet sensation. Apparently, however, I am dating one.

If there is one thing my boyfriend loves (besides me) it's facial hair in all its forms [Tangent: And I love him for it...although I kinda put my foot down against soul patches and flava savas! I think he is too swarthy a dude for that kind of tomfoolery.]. Aside from the beard and moustache sites which he has willingly participated in, images of his furry face have been used on beard lovers tumblrs, and today this picture from 2010 popped up on instagram by a enthusiast who specifically targets dapper gents. 

 The person that trolled the net for this photo also apparently hashtagged everything in order to garner to every community that might dig a stache. I mean #waistcoats #tattooeddudes #bodymods do not really apply to him, and made me laugh uncontrollably.

His brush with being a instagram all-star is second only in sheer randomness to the other internet celebrity in my life- my dog Newman. After all, if you google maps my house, you can't miss him. He's the one chasing the google maps car down my street!

It seems like I will really have to up my game to catch up with these boys.


  1. My friend Lanier was on google maps, walking into her house with her dog. I was incredibly jealous. Perhaps, I'll wait for the car to come by like the ice cream man.

  2. At our old house, if you googled our street, you could see my neighbor's dog pissing on a mailbox. It was super classy. I think that you're just as much of a celebrity as your man and Newman are. Together, quite possibly a triple threat of celebrity.

  3. oh my gosh i laughed out loud at newman!!! i love it!
    my friend britney's old house was photographed at halloween and they had a fake body in a tree so it looks like someone has been hanged in their yard!

  4. It's all coming together. Your crew is blowin up, Kimmie Jones. And you're the nucleus.

  5. I, too, am dating a moustachioed Web-lebrity.
    And I couldn't be happier about it.

  6. Does your website have a
    contact page? I'm having trouble locating it but, I'd like
    to send you an e-mail. I've got some ideas for your blog you might be interested in hearing. Either way, great site and I look forward to seeing it improve over time.


I thrive on comments, so what do you think?
