Over this past weekend, the semi-sorta-kinda-official MST3K forum had its annual meet-up/convention/thingy. This year, it was held in beautiful, wish-I-was-there Colorado. Relevance to you? Not much. However, Mary Jo Pehl was in attendance. See, MJ’s mind-bendingly charming fiance, aka “RAD,” has become a regular member of the forums. So, naturally, when he attended the convention, he brought his lovely lady-friend. Who just happens to be an ex-Brain. Nice.
Anyway, a fun time was had by all, despite the fact that they were all without my shining presence. Episodes were watched, beers were consumed, mountains were hiked, and pictures were taken. If you want to check out pictures of people you probably don’t know or care about hanging out with Mary Jo Pehl, then head to this thread from the forum. If you’re from the forums, feel free to leave anonymous trash talk in the comments below.
And that’s not all the Mary Jo I’ve got for you, oh no. The Kalamazoo Gazette recently ran an article about Mary Jo’s one-man play, “Man Saved by Condiments.” Apparently, it’s based on a true story of “a man whose car crashed into a snowy Minnesota ditch and who survived for five days on the condiments strewn about his car.” If you’re in the Michigan area, the play opens this Friday. More info can be found at the end of the article.
Also, Mary Jo has a blog. Read it.
