It’s time for our CMB series finale! We know, you’re about to cry. Don’t worry, Game of Thrones and Mad Men are both still on. If that doesn’t do it for you, there’s always the new season of Keeping Up with the Kardashians.
Good news, is there’s at one happy ending in this dating saga. Thank you to Margot, Anton and Coffee Meets Bagel for being such great sports and giving people the guts to take the online-dating plunge! Mazel Tov!
Steph & I are big fans of the AT&T ‘Kid Focus Group’ commercials featuring improv comedian Beck Bennett.
So much so, that we decided to host our own kid focus group, but instead of discussing long distance plans, of course we’d ask the kids about love and marriage.
The result, along with a rather large MAML announcement are in the video below:
*Oh, and Dave made a 4 year-old girl cry (AND he laughs about it!)
If you didn’t get the subtle clue in the video, Stephanie and I are excited to announce to our friends and supporters that we are engaged to be married, in two weeks! Please check out our new blog, coming out this summer entitled:
It’s no secret – I’ve been dreaming up my wedding to Dave since our LA days. So you can imagine my excitement when The Knot approached us to contribute to a book … about WEDDING VOWS!
Our friend Samantha, at the Knot, asked us to draft up some wedding vows and before the sentence was completely out of her mouth, Stephanie whips out a piece of note paper from her purse and says, ” DONE! These are BOTH of ours! “
LIAR! Anyway, we agreed to do it as we thought it would be a great opportunity. So we set a date to read each other the vows we each wrote, before the final submission. Little did Dave know his would unleash my inner bride. I was balling like crazy … after the first sentence!
Please change every “we” in prior preceding paragraph to “I”.
Last week, our guinea pigs, Anton, who we appropriately now call ‘Don Draper’ and Margot, as they set up their Coffee Meets Bagel profiles! The next day, they easch started getting Bagels. Each day at noon a potential match popped up in their inbox.
This week, we sat down with both Don and Margot to assess the spread. To say the least, I had a way easier job than Dave did! But that doesn’t explain why they took their shirts off ….
It started innocently enough with my postulating of a ” What would you do if… ” hypothetical to Steph. It’s a recurring game that gives you a little insight into the other’s personality. Popular ones in the past have included, ” If I went to prison, how long would you wait for me? ” or ” Would you let me bang Jessica Biel? ” – you know… typical stuff.
As some of you know, Dave is a contributing writer to CNN. We were at the launch party for a brand new show that he was writing for. Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer, Ashley Bansfield and more were all in attendance at beautiful venue overlooking Columbus Circle and Central Park. Being that it’s all glamour and news, it’s my heaven!
In the Jewish religion it’s a big time mitzvah (good deed) to set-up two people who eventually get married. IN FACT, if you are set-up THREE couples that end up getting married, it’s an automatic passport to heaven. LOOP HOLE! This means that if I somehow execute this trifecta, I can continue to blow lines off of hooker’s backs and I STILL get in! Oh God – - you make it too easy!
I was at the gym a few weeks ago and wound up on the elliptical next to an old (single) friend who told me about a new dating website, Coffee Meets Bagel. She was super high on it. The mission statement of the site is pretty unique and cool. Abridged: as opposed to other dating websites, it takes the skepticism element of meeting of with a stranger OUT of the equation. ‘How’ you ask? That’s easy: FACEBOOK!
OK – So here’s what happened: I was performing in Chicago a couple of weeks ago. A female comedian named Camilla Clesse was doing a guest set in front of me. She did a really good job. We were chatting afterwards and I learned that she was only six months into her comedy career. This was definitely surprising to me as based on the job that she did. The conversation continued to the inevitable ” How did you get into this? ” I told her about working as a doorman at the DC Improv. She reciprocated by telling me that her father is a writer/comedian. Enough conversation went back and forth to the point where a light bulb went off and I asked her, ” Wait a minute – is your father John Cleese??? ” Yes, it was. Pretty cool.
Last month we hosted our first ‘My Almost Married Life’ fitness class at Equinox! It’s just the beginning of our gym journey … who knows, next we might be at a gym near you. Here are some photos of the class for your viewing pleasure. Please take note of Dave’s ‘breaks’ while everyone else is down on the ground!
Ever get into an argument with a PMSing woman? If not, the closest comparison I can think of is if you’re a tourist in a foreign country and get into a fight with a non-English speaker.
I was in Holland and unbeknownst to me, was walking in the part of the street that was meant strictly for bicycles. Some dude on a bike starts screaming at me in Dutch. I start screaming back in American (I know ” American ” is not a language but when you’re the stoned asshole strolling around Amsterdam in the bike-lane and find yourself yelling at a resident of the country you’re in – it’s not English, it’s American).
