The Pinkiest Sides of Prentice

Most of you know that I am a Brony (devoted, adult fan to My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic). I came out of the stable pretty much the moment Joie Brown introduced the show to me, and I’m hooked. I just finished watching the documentary about Bronies, and it was awesome. It would have been 20% cooler if it had not lost-out on getting on Netflix, but still it was exquisite.

One of the reasons bronies like the show is the relatable characters (the humor, writing, artwork, animation, voice over, pop culture references and music being other reasons). Now, I have a pony persona (ponysona) named Shawty Sprinkles, but many peeps call me Pinkie Pie because if I were one of the mane six (the six main characters on MLP:FIM), I’d be her. I’ve taken this to heart many ways. Sometimes it’s flattering and other times a little embarrassing/insulting, but after much thought, I must face the facts. I AM PINKIE PIE, and for more reasons than friends, colleagues, fellow bronies may know.

I Love to Make My Friends Smile

This is one big reason I’m called a Pinkie Pie. I hate to see any of my friends suffer, and I do my best to turn that frown upside down, whether that be with a joke, a hug, advice, an open ear or a helping hoof. Let me know what you need or how you feel, and I will be there. Cross my heart, hope to fly, stick a cupcake in my eye!

I’m Sooooo Random!

eccentric pinkieIt’s no surprise to me that some people find me a bit…eccentric. I aim to be flamboyantly myself, and though  I’m not always as comfortable in my own skin as I’d like to be, I love what I love, feel what I feel, and express all my weirdness in my own, silly way. I’ve learned the hard way too many times that being myself is crucial to my success, especially with my writing, marketing, nannying/kid wrangling and voice over. If a person or job isn’t into me, I can deal with that, so long as I’m true to myself.

I Love Parties

This is probably the top reason I’m called Pinkie Pie, and I don’t always know how to interpret that. I like to have a good time, and I want to make sure others have a great time, too. I’m a fun person. I like to throw/attend a good soiree. This does not mean I’m an out-of-control party animal. If you think this about me, you don’t know me at all and need to get a life. That kind of talk is mean and complex-inducing.

My Element of Harmony is Laughter

I’m a funny girl. My favorite movie is Funny Girl. I would always rather watch a comedy over a drama, and I love the internet for giving me infinite LOLs 24/7. I have a very intimate relationship with laughter. I like to make others laugh. I laugh at my expense. I Cray Cray Pinkiefind humor during bad situations to cope and create jokes during uncomfortable moments to overcompensate. Jokes are my defense mechanism, my crutch and my giddiest passion. I’m always in the mood to ROFL.

The Darkness Beneath Humor

It’s been said that behind comedy is tragedy. Comedians often are or have been troubled. I am my biggest, darkest saboteur. I relate completely with Pinkie Pie’s corrupt side, “Pinkamina Diane Pie.” I am a little crazy behind the scenes at times and have definitely made that creepy Pinkamena face before.  Why don’t I share that part of myself with peeps?  Nobody wants to see that. Ain’t nobody got time for that, Prentice! Uh oh. Yeah. I talk to myself, too…

We’ve Both Had Shit Jobs

Before Pinkie Pie saw Rainbow Dash’s Sonic Rainboom and subsequently found herself pinkie receptionistand her cutie mark, she had an awful, soul crunching job on a rock farm.  I’ve had a few “rock farm” jobs myself (Cough cough…RECEPTIONIST JOBS), but unfortunately, my sonic rainboom was a pinkslip or two. Oh well, I like pink, and pink ain’t in the rainbow. And, it’s a source of inspiration for Joie and My Cutie Mark Fail comic, right? As I say, any experience is worthwhile so long as it makes a great story (said in my best Pinkie voice).

A Few Things I Wish Pinkie & I Had in Common

  • I wish my hair could hold a curl
  • I wish I could defy all laws of physics
  • I wish I could eat like her and stay skinny
  • I wish I had a party cannon
