kristin pony is gonna be a mom

kristin ponyold school busblog readers will know that pretty face. it’s the oklahoma blogger turned lawyer kristin pony who became internet famous many moons ago when she and her sister created the Mad Pony blog.

over the years we have seen kristin go from college to the pros,

shes changed jobs,

gotten married

and now look, she’s producing a nice young blogger,

who she tells me loves mexican food and hot showers.

kristin and i first met at SXSW (back when it was cool) and she did the sweetest thing, she drove all the way down in her convertible.

and one thing i have always been surprised about when meeting people from the blogosphere:

theyre usually prettier than their pictures and even nicer.

kristin is no exception to that rule.

she tells me that one of the boys’ grampas is a Cub fan and sent the little sprout a ton of Cubs gear so he’s got that going for him, which is nice.

will he ride horses like his momma and his aunt?

will he go to school at Norman or OKC?

so many questions surround this child who has yet to see his first Video Music Award show.

what we know is he will be smart and lovely and well behaved. and his first words will probably be Boomer Sooner.

either way, congratulations to kristin, one of the busblog’s all time favorite people.

no need to name him Tony.

Barack Hussein will be quite all right.

oklahoma just passed a law making abortions illegal

oklahomawhen i was a kid,

hell, even when i was in college,

i had this bizarre belief that adults knew what they were doing.

that they wouldnt intentionally waste time and money on things that were nonsensical.

that they wouldn’t, as i was warned as a kid, not to jump off a cliff

just because everyone else was doing it.

i know a lot of people get all super dooper crazy when a woman gets preggo

they want to put their hands all over her eggo.

she’ll go, yo, leggo my eggo

i wanna do with my eggo whatever i wanna do with my eggo

since, firstly it’s mine

and secondly, i live in america

and in america theres this thing called the fuck you i can do this amendment

just like how you have the fuck you i can carry a gun amendment.

but these adults in politics actually DONT MIND AT ALL wasting time and money on things

they obsess over putting their hands and faces and lips and tongues and feet all over preggo ladies’ eggos

even though once that eggo turns into a kiddo they’re all la la la who dis new phone

they dont wanna do the right thing to have public schools be kick ass

they dont wanna do the right thing to make sure the kiddo can get free health care

they dont wanna do the right thing to make sure the food it eats or water it drinks are safe from corporations polluting the air and seas

they dont wanna make sure that the Earth stops heating up so the kiddo can, you know, live

and for sure they dont wanna keep the kiddo safe in schools after all the school shootings that go on.

because constitution.

but they forget that abortion is constitution too. actually they dont forget, they lalalala around that too.

because fuck you.

pretty much thats what oklahoma, a beautiful state filled with beautiful people just said to women

they said fuck you and you and you and you and you and you and you

and especially you tax payers because this tantrum is gonna cost you all the money

money that could go to schools, clean air, clean water, school lunches, health care, playgrounds, drug rehab

and nice things for children who were actually planned to be part of this beautiful slam dance we are all in.

so thanks oklahoma, for reminding us how important voting is

and how important voting all of you out really is.

today is kristin’s twenty-fourth birthday,

i wonder what she wants.

i hope she knows she can have anything.

i hope all of you know that.

i knew kristin when she was just nineteen she reminds me. i knew her when she was just starting up madpony with her sister.

now shes (still) a big star in the dirty south, and i still get hits from people searching for her long defunc blog.

shes better than me in so many ways and i dont blame the world.

her life is a real one and its interesting and madpony is just the tip of the iceberg of her accomplishments and im glad ive gotten to know her a little more than than just from her blog.

our oklahoman is super sweet, shes smart, she works hard, shes a great friend, shes a good sister, shes a great daughter, she does pretty much everything right, and she does it in that hot southern accent.

just like the ramones was mostly johnny, madpony was mostly kristin so we probably shouldnt ask for more from her, but it wouldnt suck to get a comeback.

i still dont know enough about sorority girl life, or what its like to go to a game in norman while their team is top rated and their fans are insane.

or what things are like in her town now that they have to take on Connecticut in Zona on new years day where they will probably win.

im glad to learn about shopping and shoes and things like that, but i want even more.

we’re lucky to have what we have, and you must admit, there arent many kristins.

happy birthday baby.

your biggest fan,

the intertubes

what ever happened to Lauren Pony?

many years ago the hottest pair of sisters in the blogosphere were the Mad Pony girls in oklahoma. when we first met them kristin was a freshman in college and her sister lauren was still in high school.

time has passed, kristin is a lawyer and lauren is playing semi-pro flag football.

this week lauren had an incident on the field which resulted in 8 stitches.

even though somehow she looks better than ever, kristin is still the busblog favorite. regardless, we hope the younger pony recovers quickly.

today is lauren’s sweet sixteen birthday

lauren pony

and i think that’s sweet.

oh sure, that’s the same lauren who had me murdered late last year, after i did a pretty indepth interview on her.

but it worked out, i got to meet kurt cobain, i got to go to pre-Heaven, and then i got to go to Hell, and none of it could have happened without lauren.

so happy birthday, Teen Pony.

im glad you can finally use that shiny car your old man got ya.

im glad the streets of oklahoma are now unsafe for any use whatsoever, and probably the sidewalks too.

just remember, you get more points for the elderly, so aim high.
