Astoria Disturbia

My mother is always very worried about me living in the city. Even though:

  • I've lived in Queens for 10 years
  • She used to work in the city when Times Square wasn't Disney Land
  • I live in an extremely safe neighborhood
I reassure her of the safety of my neighborhood often. So, this morning while walking the streets I love so very much,  when I saw roads blocked off and tons of police all I could think of was 

Crap. Someone died. 
This is gonna hit the news! 
My mom watches the news all day! 
I'll never be able to convince her it's safe to walk at night again..
I bet there's a serial killer. Watch, they found a ton of bodies. 
I live next to Dexter. 

As I walked closer, I noticed that one of the cops wasn't dressed in uniform. 

Damn, they have an undercover dude. I bet it's like The Wire. There were drug murders, and they found bodies in that house that's all boarded up.

Then, I finally get to the scene.
The blocked off street.
The cop cars. 
The van with all the camera equipment.

Turns out, they were filming Nurse Jackie.

I wasn't that far off though.. it did involve a TV Show.

Makin' Memes, Makin' Money

I'm spending most of my days and nights watching TV, taking screenshots of shows I'm watching, making those shots into memes - and then tweeting and Facbooking about those shows and memes. I do all of this for money, which is unfreakin' believable. Seriously, my mom doesn't even believe me. I call her and when I tell her what I do for a living she replies, "Susie-Q, are you sure that's what they are paying you to do? I mean, are you supposed to be watching all that TV?"
Yes, and it. is. glorious. Thank you TV Land!
Since my life is less about going out on the town lately, I figured I'd continue the blogging hiatus and take my musings to Tumblr aptly named, The Sue Funke Tumblr.

Exciting Stuff

Not only am I the current voice of TV Land on Twitter and Facebook, but I also got a shout-out from Funny or Die.

Damn, it feels good to be a social media gangsta.

I'm going to venture to a show where I'm not taking pictures of Drag Queens. Instead, I'll be performing stand-up live at the Mosaic Lounge in Astoria. Find out more details here, or click the "See Me Live" button.

And now a picture of me and Latrice Royale.

I really can't get enough of this photo.
