This is that globe-that-has-a-secret-compartment-for-booze from the Skymall catalogue. It was backstage at Cinefamily the other night and I felt like I was seeing a celebrity. #skypaul (at Cinefamily)
Aaaaaall the way back in 2011 (were we ever so young?), I was flying across the country on an airplane that offered wifi but did not offer supersonic speed. So I passed the time by “live-tweeting” the SkyMall catalogue; I took pictures of their dumb merchandise and offered my own captions, uploading it all live to Twitter as I flew over the flyovers.
A few days ago, the delightful Gillian Jacobs began posting pictures of SkyMall items on Instagram, citing me as her inspiration. Well! She became my re-inspiration a day later, as I found myself on a five-hour flight with wifi, my phone, and a brand new edition of the SkyMall catalogue!
If you would like to see all of these— the ones I did in 2011 and the ones I did the other night— I have collected them all on a separate page:
All posts are tagged “SkyPaul” for your convenience. I KNOW YOU DON’T CARE, SHUT UP.
Spoiler alert! I virtually repeat two different jokes two years after originally writing them. Sorry. Please collect a full refund from the Tmblr bursr.
