We’re so sorry that we just sort of disappeared off the face of the blogosphere. Blame ennui, busy schedules, and Netflix.
But inspiration has struck! Even though we will no longer be posting on P&P, our voices have moved over to a new space on Tumblr called the Parody Workshop. We hope that you all will come check out our tongue-in-cheek parodies of popular culture.
Our first offering to the gods of comedy, if you will permit us one last homage to our namesakes, is Gloaming (Or, Twilight in which Edward can hear Bella’s thoughts and does not wait until the second book to attempt suicide by Volturi).
Peace, and happy new year!
As we mentioned last week, this past weekend was a bit of a P&P reunion/whirlwind 2 .5 days during which Penny met [most of] Polly’s peeps.
Getting around [POLLY’S CITY] is best done via public transit. Below is a transcription of our adventures on the same. Enjoy. (We certainly did.)

Polly: Can we observe bro cracking a beer before 1 sitting across from retired school teachers.
Penny: Ok… I’ll be obvious and turn around… HAHAHAHAHHAA. And sitting next to his super entitled, annoying wife?

Polly: If I had a better phone, I’d snag a picture of his shoes.
Penny: HAHAHHA OMZ. Those are not shoes. Those are Foot Candy for Men. (And I am at the wrong angle to do so unobtrusively. Sigh.)
Polly: It’s so inspiring! HOLY SHIT did you hear social security might run out? MY TEACHER SAID SO.
Penny: Social security is going bankrupt? Whatever, I have lavender shoes and coordinating purple polk-a-dot socks. Continue reading
We’ve added Oxford Comma and MMF to our list of Recurring Characters because <<gasp>> it looks like they maybe might (in some strange alternate universe that is not our normal lives) be around for a while.
(And apparently a hot toy this Christmas.)
Polly: I had one. I think it’s locked away in a cabinet in my basement – thing wouldn’t shut up. I had an idea for a low budget horror movie and an army of furbies. I didn’t develop it any further… I was too afraid.
