    Nice long johns, this looks like the start of a kick ass Nascar party! Break out the Icehouse beer and Larry the Cable guy jokes! ha ha, I kid you’re a cutie

  2. OyiaBrown January 18, 2012 at 1:26 pm

    Like the pants!

    Thanks for taking the time to read my blog. Let’s hope tonight: is not and Obama-nation by the president. Unfortunately it will be a campaign speech. Dam just what we need right? Looked over some of you,er material, I will definitely look in again.

    You’re header picture reminds me of my first decree if I were made tyrant of a large industrialized nation. Everyone would have to commute into work on child sized tricycles, no exception.

    • justingawel January 29, 2012 at 3:38 am

      National crises wouldn’t matter to that country, as everyone’s morale would be sky-high from getting to ride tiny bikes all day! Yes, of course I’ll be relocating to there.

      • theuglymoose February 1, 2012 at 5:25 pm

        I think it depends on the length of the commute and weather. If it was 2 below freezing with snow drifts, and you lived 40 miles from work, your morale probably wouldn’t be too high. However, as an evil Tyrant that wouldn’t be of concern to me, as I’d be eating grapes and flying kites with dragons on them, obviously to my people’s suffering.

    Dude, you rock that look

  6. sandylikeabeach February 9, 2012 at 3:32 pm

  10. Liv March 18, 2012 at 9:32 pm

    OMG I just found you and you seem as weird as me! lmaoooo Im so gonna have to read up.

  11. ProfMomEsq March 27, 2012 at 4:12 pm

    How could I not follow a blog written by a “self-proclaimed complainy-pants”?

  12. bklynboy59 April 12, 2012 at 4:23 pm

    thanks for visiting my site feel free to drop by often. I write daily and it affords opportunites to hit on a sport you might like.

  13. the stay at home philosopher April 15, 2012 at 10:46 am

    If everyone would act like the babies that they really are, the world would be a better and way more funny place! Thanks for your work. Also, I’m glad you enjoyed “Fruit Flies.”

  14. thejottersjoint May 22, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    Your blog post titles crack me up. Life with you must be very interesting. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

  15. NickKills May 23, 2012 at 7:40 pm

    thanks for the like buddy! looks like we going keep an eye on this blog.

  16. piggypunch May 26, 2012 at 6:53 pm

    Justin, I too lived in EL for 4 years, which probably explains why we share the same taste in humor. Keep up the good work.


  17. amb June 1, 2012 at 7:15 pm

    Thanks for liking a recent post of mine! Glad we connected – your blog is hilarious, and I’ll be back often.

  18. site June 3, 2012 at 2:24 am

    Nearly all of the remarks on this particular web site dont make sense.

  19. Simon June 5, 2012 at 8:23 pm

    I just found your blog and I gotta tell you, you are the kind of funny that makes me jealous. I am looking forward to poking through your archives (in a totally hetero way dude wtf?). Really smart and funny stuff. There should be more like this one.

  20. Fern De Villiers July 19, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    OK so I came here because you “liked” something I wrote. Fine. But just like Simon in the post above this one, “I gotta tell you, you are the kind of funny that makes me jealous”. And I watch Maury too. So thank you for leading me in your direction. I was pleasantly surprised. I definitely look forward to more. You rock, Justin! And I LOVE the long johns. I have about four or five pair myself.

    • justingawel July 19, 2012 at 9:48 pm

      Fern, thank you so much for the kind words; I’m thrilled that you like what you’ve read here! I’m looking forward to seeing more shirtless picture of Matthew McConaughey on you site, preferably with him in long johns or watching Maury.

  21. daffodilsparkle July 30, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    This reminds me of Charlie Kelly, and therefore I like you.

  22. Naomi Baltuck August 18, 2012 at 10:30 pm

    Just saw you are from Michigan. I headed out west from Detroit to seek my fortune. Love your style.

  23. findingdepp August 19, 2012 at 4:38 pm

    Totally sexy. I love that look. The droop is what makes it.

  24. Patt September 8, 2012 at 11:06 pm

    I’m so happy you liked my blog. Hope you come back for more. It’s nice to have someone from Michigan – I’m an old Livonia native… not that I’m old (well older than you), but a Michigander at heart.

  25. peachyteachy September 9, 2012 at 8:23 pm

    Have spent time in East Lansing. Not hoity-toity enough to hang in Grosse Pointe though. So super thanks for the like on my blog!

  26. Maggie O'C September 12, 2012 at 7:29 pm

    All I could think when I saw that photo is “I’d hit that.” But I’m probably old enough to be your mother and that would be wholly inappropriate.

  27. A Gripping Life September 12, 2012 at 8:03 pm

    Thanks for liking my silly little post today. I like what you’ve got going on here. I see my friend Maggie really digs you, she’s a little shy, so if it’s okay, I’ll stick around and see if anything inappropriate develops.

  28. youngamericanwisdom.com September 18, 2012 at 3:05 pm

    Maybe you’ll start a new trend. I’ll let you know when the moms at the bus stop start showing up in long johns and heels.

  29. alienredqueen September 19, 2012 at 10:37 pm

    wow…those pants are…damn sexy.

  30. amandameetsbook September 21, 2012 at 10:33 pm

    What an outstanding pose.

    And I didn’t even put “outstanding” in quotes like a dick. With the exception of what I just did there.

  31. Gianni September 22, 2012 at 3:08 am

    are you wearing underwear under those?!

  32. Clip Snark September 23, 2012 at 4:15 pm

    Thanks for stopping by Clip Snark! πŸ™‚

  33. becca3416 October 4, 2012 at 10:01 am

    So help me god… if those are long johns…

  34. shugamama October 10, 2012 at 10:15 am

    I wish i’d have found your blog sooner. am in awe.

  35. selfprophet October 10, 2012 at 11:19 am

    LOL your cool !!!!! Nice writting too bro !!

  36. elainestirling October 12, 2012 at 7:26 pm

    Now that I’ve had a peek around your blog, Justin, I am truly honored that you enjoyed The House that Zuke Built. Thanks for dropping by, and stay fun! The world needs more of it.

  37. Pingback: Desert Rose nominated ME for an award!! | Potentially Disruptive

    • justingawel October 17, 2012 at 2:58 pm

      Thank you for the nomination! I am thrilled you thought of me. The one and only thing you need to know about me is that I’m no longer allowed to dance the Charleston at weddings anymore because of a court order.

  38. Ken Marteney October 17, 2012 at 11:09 am

    I nominated you for the Tell Me About Yourself Award. Congratulations! Go here to see the rules…http://potentiallydisruptive.wordpress.com/2012/10/17/desert-rose-nominated-me-for-an-award/

    • justingawel October 17, 2012 at 3:00 pm

      Thank you, thank you, I appreciate the nomination and I’m surprised people want to know more about me besides my proclivity for naps, monster truck shows, and the program Maury.

  39. meexio October 20, 2012 at 8:31 pm

    This is so late, but thanks for checking out my blog πŸ™‚ happy to have met someone who shares the understanding of naps lol LOVE THEM ALWAYS

  40. reocochran October 23, 2012 at 9:43 pm

    I was surprised that you are following me! I am a grandma “Nana” and not really that interesting to young people unless they are related to me! But you are funny and I do like the long johns look.
    I grew up in Cleveland and all things thermal, ROCK! Keep up the fun and games!

  41. ChrisKincaid October 25, 2012 at 12:00 pm

    Haha! Great pic!

    And thanks for the thumbs up on my blogs! πŸ™‚

  42. Leslie Jo November 1, 2012 at 11:43 pm

    Hi! Thanks for liking my blog. I love the photo above. I can tell that you have a great sense of style. Are long johns going to be the trend for the upcoming season? I need to know so I can get to Target to stock up before everyone else catches on. Thanks!

  43. FlaHam November 2, 2012 at 4:10 pm

    Hello, thank you for stopping by and looking at my post. I did a quick look at your work and enjoyed your ramblings quite abit. Take care much success. — Bill

  44. Rosie the Yoga Dog November 2, 2012 at 11:01 pm

    East Lansing? We’re almost neighbors. Rosie the Yoga Dog, and I, are in Montague, just north of Muskegon. Curious. Do those have a drop seat?

  45. Brainy Pint Sizer November 16, 2012 at 8:16 pm

    Sooooo, you visited my lil’ blog-that-could, and I appreciate that. Soooooo, I jumped on your blog, and jumped on the About page, and I knew then — we connected. I can appreciate those who rock the long johns. Yes I can.

  46. soynailcider November 17, 2012 at 11:06 am

    Love that Michigan Fall fashion! Long johns and flip flops. lol
    Thanks for checking me out. πŸ˜‰

  47. becky6259 November 25, 2012 at 8:53 pm

    Funny stuff! I thought your funeral post was a riot(!), since I’ve been to some funerals that I had trouble staying awake through myself. Thanks for visiting my blog and liking my post, and drop back in again!

  50. momentumofjoy December 7, 2012 at 5:29 pm

    I LOVE THIS PIC! It is so my style. Seriously. You may have to be my new BFF just out of sheer awesomeness.

  51. Ilene (BinkyBecky) December 7, 2012 at 6:12 pm

    Okay. YOU liked my post “First Friday Funnies”. After reading some of your work, laughing so hysterically that my kids looked worried, I felt like I just won Prom Queen and your LIKE was my dazzling crown. I am not worthy, but thank you! I will be back for many doses of your very clever, quite irreverent humor. I’m still laughing!

    • justingawel December 7, 2012 at 6:19 pm

      Thank you very much for the kind words! I am delighted that you enjoyed some of this adult baby’s ramblings and hope that you will return. In regards to you post, I am a huge David Sedaris fan; he is absolutely brilliant when it comes to this blend of high-brow, low-brow, and at times dark kind of humor that I love to read. Always awesome to meet someone who enjoys him as much as I do.

  52. rodalena December 8, 2012 at 12:26 pm

    I wandered over here after you wandered over to my weird corner of the web, and I’m laughing my fool head off. Great blog. The wardrobe could use some help, you haven’t escaped Michigan yet, and I have never seen that yoga pose before, but hey, we’re all a work in progress. πŸ˜‰

    • justingawel December 8, 2012 at 12:45 pm

      Haha, that is me in my most natural state. Someday contemporary yoga will dub it the “adult baby”. Thank you for coming by; I am delighted that you enjoyed my ramblings.

  53. A. December 12, 2012 at 7:27 pm

    Glad to know someone else doesn’t believe in stranger danger. I feel like in another life we may have shared part of the same brain, which is a little alarming if you think too closely about it. Either way, I enjoy your scribbles.

  54. dhonour December 13, 2012 at 8:09 am

    Lol. I came to thank you for the like on my ‘holiday goodies, part II’ post and I stayed to read. Now, I gotta say, with 2 young boys and a husband, I am not looking for any more apathetic babies in my life…but I may just have to come back around to read some more–tis good stuff you’ve got here Mr. Ayatollah. Oh, and as an aside, after perusing some of the comments here, I shall now have to go off and google ‘sphincter symphony’ to see where it leads to. It would be rude not to, really.

  55. jcd kerwin December 13, 2012 at 8:28 pm

    It’s the sandals, really, that make this outfit. Exquisite.

  56. reggiebecker December 17, 2012 at 4:39 pm

    Justin: Thank you for visiting mylifeasasquirrel and liking it. I am sorry I did not reply earlier; my very bad time management! I read two of your posts along with the Ramblings… they are all very funny. I will be returning for more. Thank you again!

  57. RobFather-X! December 20, 2012 at 3:24 am

    Thank you for visiting my blog. I’m still new at blogging, learning to be more open about myself (which is why I initially started blogging so I could stop talking to walls), the things I like/don’t like, and other things which I simply want to share an opinion.

  58. misscorinne December 20, 2012 at 8:35 am

    Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog! I’ll admit, I was surprised that a self-described “eccentric dirtbag” like yourself would have interest in a post about Midwifery, but that’s cool…that’s cool. As someone with a background in the porn industry, I will gladly follow your blog from now on – assuming the world doesn’t end tomorrow. Happy apocalypse!

  59. candycanecoolio December 26, 2012 at 6:54 pm

    Interesting…….um. Yes. Um. NIce…*snickers* …pants….tehee… Oh yes. You are an eccentric little boy.

  63. Dan Tabata January 2, 2013 at 10:36 am

    LOL! Hmmm, weather.com says, current temp 23 deg. F “Feels Like 12 deg. F”!!! When it’s that chilly, do you put on a coat, or just add a pair of socks? πŸ˜‰ (I live in Los Angeles, CA…when it’s below 72 in our house we feel cold.)

  64. ksbeth January 2, 2013 at 2:20 pm

    Hello, hello! Thank you for passing by and visiting my blog post about old photos… I must say, as someone who never watched tv, I particularly enjoyed your post about people who don’t watch tv…. Too true, too painfully true… Java x P.s Nice long johns

    • justingawel January 31, 2013 at 2:42 pm

      Thank you very much! You might not know them when you see them, but smug people who don’t watch TV are easy to identify once they open their mouth. Many thanks for the long johns love too.

  80. pattythetree February 1, 2013 at 4:08 pm

  96. navigator1965 February 20, 2013 at 6:19 pm

    Justin, Love the long johns! They were mandatory for me – mine, not yours – when I lived through a few Winnipeg winters. Thanks for the visit / like on the poem. Cheers, S

    • justingawel February 20, 2013 at 10:28 pm

      Thank you, thank you! I could get used to mandatory long johns, but I don’t think I could get used to Winnipeg winters, those sound cold, even compared to Michigan winters.

      • navigator1965 February 21, 2013 at 6:15 am

        I saw one morning as cold as -38.2 deg F, without wind chill. I saw one summer day hit 100.4 deg F. Outrageous winter – summer temperature variation. Only driven through Michigan – seems like a pretty place.

      • justingawel February 21, 2013 at 1:45 pm

        That is quite the span! I don’t think I’ve seen it ever quite that cold (on it’s own, not considering the windchill), but it definitely gets up there in the summer. So much humidity.

  97. diligentsurrender February 20, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    Hey man, just wanted to say thanks for liking my post, I wonder what about it was so interesting to you, hopefully you can follow along as I continue Day 4 tomorrow. Take care bro. :^D

    Hey thanks for the like on one for my posts, your blog is hilarious and the fact you have an appreciation for Maury and Crunch Berries makes me like you even more! Haha getting studio audience tickets is like number 1 on my bucket list.

    • justingawel February 21, 2013 at 1:48 pm

      I’ve always wanted to be in the studio audience there and should probably try to play a trip to NY/CT one of these days to actually do it. Days of Maury and Crunch Berries are days well spent!

    • justingawel February 21, 2013 at 1:44 pm

      Thank you, and, shockingly, that is my most natural state, although it doesn’t occur as often as I’d like. Fantastic to meet another Michigander! Which TN do you mean if not Tennessee? TN-T? Tophat Nostalgia? Totally Nuclear? Haha, thank you for coming by.

    Oh! Ha! Ha! Ha! Bet you’re hooked now. Maybe you could join John in Tough Mudder as his rotten kids are going to a stag party the same weekend he is participating. You get an orange head band.

    Thank you for finding me so I could find you – – you so make me
    You just added at least 10 minutes to my life…

    Your “natural state” is to be commended….for numerous reasons….the first is, “OMG! What is he wearing?!? Well, at least it’s green…”

  123. greatmartin April 23, 2013 at 10:55 pm

    My only thought–and that is how MY mind works–is what is in the long johns!!!! :O)

    • justingawel April 25, 2013 at 11:33 am

    you impress me as very energetic…wild…rebellious, but intelligent.

    • justingawel June 3, 2013 at 8:08 pm

      I’m flattered, seriously, thank you for that very kind compliment! I’ll try to keep writing with energy and intellect that can come off as rebellious.

    Thank you for visiting and the like on my blog. I will revisit and explore your blog. It seems very interesting.

  131. tonicscale June 4, 2013 at 12:08 am

    Hey Michigan! Is it warming up there yet? The coldest winter I ever spent in my life was a winter day I spent just south of Detroit. Wow! I used to roll over to Canada out of there… anyway, I used to put longjohns on my head and tie the lets in a bow… Not great for getting Dates but I was a hoot at parties.. πŸ™‚ Rock on man… Peace…

    • justingawel June 4, 2013 at 10:38 pm

      Haha, yeah that actually sounds about right for the winter around here. I grew up around the Detroit area and it’s just about as cold as where I am now. Gotta love the Midwest.

  132. sstorm0730 June 4, 2013 at 9:26 am

    Hello, Justin –
    Thanks for reading my blog. My ol’ man was born in the U.P. and lived there most of his life. I owned tattoo shops in Monroe and Pontiac a few years back. So, we are really familiar with Michigan. Your blog is quite interesting and I look forward to reading more from you. Have a great day!

    • justingawel June 4, 2013 at 10:41 pm

      Awesome, thank you for reading and of course it is always great to meet someone who is familiar with Michigan! Thanks again, and I’ll know where to go for tattoos if I’m back around Metro-Detroit!

  133. jensine June 6, 2013 at 7:02 pm

    love flip-flop long-john combo .. very “expressive”

    Thanks for checking out my blog. Love the pants and the caption. I can imagine how fund you are as a person, if that’s how you look on your “natural state”. πŸ™‚

    • justingawel June 18, 2013 at 6:24 pm

      Thank you, thank you very much! I’m glad you’ve enjoyed my about section. I do prance and mince around in my natural state, but I also do eat a lot of McNuggets and those are notably absent from my picture.

  136. ssoldjasper June 18, 2013 at 9:40 pm

    How’d Michigan get next to Ohio?

  137. Sous nos Couettes June 27, 2013 at 4:16 pm

    Don’t know you Mr. GAWEL but like you very much already. Someone having the guts to wear such great outfits can definitely not be a bad person. Big Ups from two little rascals & their father in Paris, France !

    • justingawel June 27, 2013 at 4:40 pm

      Thank you, Paris! Fantastic to hear that you guys like the long johns!

      • Sous nos Couettes June 27, 2013 at 4:43 pm

        Love them !

        + I learnt an new English term tonight thanks to you : Long Johns !

        Will try my best to place it in a French conversation in the next days … love already the challenge !

      • justingawel June 28, 2013 at 11:44 am

        That’s awesome! I wish you the best of luck in working it into a conversation; it might be tough as I fear the long john isn’t really hip when it comes to French fashion.

      • Sous nos Couettes June 28, 2013 at 11:49 am

        False Justin ! It just did thanks to you … You HAVE TO sign with a Big Name in Paris in order to give the “Long Johns” the place it deserves in global fashion. You’ll be on a mission as soon as I handle placing it in a Parisian conversation … πŸ˜‰

      • justingawel July 1, 2013 at 6:53 pm

        I love it! I absolutely love it and am impressed that you were able to work it in so quickly!

    Thank you for visiting me, Ayatollah.
    Those types of longjohns came in handy in the Winter during my postie days. Other posties wore their wives tights beneath their trousers, but that was all year around.
    Best wishes.

    If I were a man in Michigan, I would dream of writing the stories that you write. Funny as frickamagig! I also dream that you are (I am in my next life) making a lovely living as a writer. Thank you for posting and “liking” one of my posts so that I could be introduced to yours. Also, hello up there!

    • justingawel April 14, 2021 at 4:11 pm

      Awww, thank you so much! I’m glad you like my stuff on here. Not a living a this time, but maybe a few bucks here and there, definitely doing it more for the love of the game. Delighted you stopped by here!
