My Affair

Y’all. I’m having an affair.


All the signs are there if you look closely.

I talk to him constantly.

I talk ABOUT him constantly.

I laugh at all his jokes.

I’ve taken an avid interest in his hobbies.

I’ve complimented him.

I’ve told others about him.

Do you want me to tell you about him?

You do?


He’s a good-lookin’ fella.

He’s separated (y’all stop hatin’ me right now…it’s fine).

He’s got kids.

He has a pet crow.

He’s brilliant.

He’s talented.

He makes me laugh.

He has small feet but long toes (don't even get me started on the mental images this conjures up).


(y’all haven’t guessed by now?)

……Trooper Thorn…of Dogs and Jeans.

Are you guys reading him?

He’s brilliant! I mean, seriously, he’s got writing chops like nobody I know.

Yeah, yeah, people talk about Black Hockey Jesus this and LiteralDan that, but this guy…he ROCKS!

The way he strings words together…he blows me away.

He’s recently written post after post about the Olympics. Y’all have seen me link to him at the top of my blog.

He writes about his dog on drugs.

He writes about a maniacal pet crow who likes to take baths from a water hose.

He writes about coloring…yes, with crayons.

He writes about spam...and not the meat, well, at least not the kind that comes in a can.

He writes about his kids coining a term for the combination of genitals. Yes, you read that right.

He writes about Phelpsing.

He writes about teen-age girls...not that way, you pervs.

He writes about camping bimbos. And unfortunately, no pics. Next, time, right Trooper?

Guys, if you aren’t reading him, you should be. He will make you laugh, he will make you think, he WILL entertain you.

In addition to his regular blog, he has also written a screenplay that Hollywood has yet to pick up. I think it’s because he got it off to the wrong people. If he could get this in Judd Apatow’s hands, imagine the possibilities.

He posts each episode under the blog name “Dialing Under the Influence”. Go, read, comment, critique (he doesn’t mind), love.

And, if you like him, pass the love along. Link to him, blogroll him, send the link to the screenplay to your cousins best friends ex-husbands psychiatrists sisters gay lover who knows Judd.

You won’t be sorry.


25 really cool people who give a rat's patootie:

Middle Aged Woman

What are you doing up so early?

'That Girl'

He is good..the Olympics thing had me rolling.

sassy stephanie

Troop and I found each other awhile back. He came over to my place for some nasty jello and I 've been hooked on him ever since. Well, in a bloggy kind of way...I'm a married woman *blush*. Even his comments around the blogosphere are entertaining.

Jennifer and Sandi

Yes he's awesome!!

I found him through you a few weeks ago, and I'm enjoying his blog so much. He makes me laugh. Out loud. A lot.

I didn't know you two had a thing going on though. I'll watch my step and be sure not to flirt too much.



Don't you be hatin on my BHJ!

lol seriously, I need to check him out.

Swirl Girl

He's on my daily read list! Truly hysterical.

can we discuss the possibility of a three way? Or a four way if we include a laptop.

Mama Dawg

Trust me, scargosun, I ain't hatin' BHJ...I love him too, but he's not accessible like Trooper is.

Swirl Girl-You're on.

Rhea-don't go flirtin' w/my man, now, ya hear! I can throw down with the best of 'em.

Sassy-I don't even want to go there with your nasty jello.

Mama Dawg

Trooper, Swirl Girl has a proposition for us. Whadda ya think?

Trooper Thorn


Mama Dawg

Oh, my, swirl girl, I think we've managed to make him speechless!

That's gotta be a first!

Weith Kick

I too am a regular Trooper Thorn reader. I am particularly enjoying his Olympics commentary.

Why did I know from the very beginning of this post you were talking about Trooper Thorn?

Hot Tub Lizzy

Fight ya for him.

Mama Dawg

Hell to the NO Lizzy. He's mine, all mine.

Plus, I don't fight fair.

No one will ever replace my sweet black hockey jesus.

But I shall check out your love, too.

Jenn @ Juggling Life

I, too, am feelin' the love!


I knew instantly that you were talking about him! He's already in my blogroll, thanks to you!

Hey, totally unrelated, but I was thinking for your Etsy shop, you could make some beaded pacifier clasp chains? You could make some really pretty ones, and personalize them! I would buy one if I still had a pacifier baby!

(and then if you wanted to post a tutorial, I would love to learn how to make them!)


I'm in - thanks for the referral, highly entertaining! (sigh ANOTHER fabulous blog to read? Oh, OK!)

Well, now I know why my ears were burning while I was vacation.

You know, besides the sun.

(I agree that this guy makes for fun reading.)
