[Editor’s Note: With Season One of the Mark Aldrich and Panda sketch comedy show underway, Panda noticed that she now has fans online who want to know more about her, so she has decided to write and publish a blog about her life. By the way, if you have not started to watch, episodes one through six of Mark Aldrich and Panda are available on YouTube, and each episode is about ten minutes long and hilarious, if I say so myself. And now, here’s Panda with week three of Panda’s Blog.—Mark]

Panda’s Blog for MONDAY
Monday, 6:02 p.m.: I forgot today was a blog day … I thought that it was Sunday and I just woke up. I have to go to bed soon! Xoxo, Panda
Panda’s TUESDAY Update
Tuesday, 9:04 a.m.: Good morning! There has been some drama this morning. There was an upset in the gummy flavor ranking. Here is last week’s:
I didn’t think the “GTFO” would ever be knocked out of first place, but it was and we are all still dealing with that over here. I will keep you updated. I get to go to the grocery store again today, and I can’t wait!! I’m not sure what I’m going to wear yet but maybe something orange. Or green. I want to wear my sparkle tights for sure.
Tuesday, 9:30 a.m.: I forgot to write my movie review for this month. I told Meghan and she said she would do it. She asked what movie was it supposed to be on and I said “any movie Halloween-themed, but I have to have it done today.’ And she said, “Oh no,” and I said, “I know.” And she said, “It’s ok I’ll figure something out.” I have a towel on my head right now. I just washed the top part of myself in the sink and I’m going to get the rest in a bath. I like to feel like I’m already ready when I get in so there’s less to do when I get out. I haven’t gotten in the bath yet. I came back outside of the bathroom to blog and watch TV. It might be too hot for sparkly tights, tho’. I’m going to have to check. It’s sunny. ☀️
Tuesday, 9:39 a.m.: It’s NOT too hot for sparkly tights! Hooray! Ok. I’m gonna go plan an outfit now for real, I’ll talk to you later diary, love, Panda xoxo.
Tuesday 12:12pm: My new promo is out! Mark and I made a video that’s EXACTLY LIKE ADELE’S. I made a new “Dance Party” album, and I named one of the songs, “Easy On Mark,” and we filmed a video, and it’s up on YouTube right now. I look really good in it.
Tuesday, 5:31 p.m.: I just woke up from a nap! I made beans earlier that I got from the store. I got all kinds of things to put in my crockpot. Various soups and beans. I like putting food in the crockpot, then during the day when u get hungry I can just go serve myself like I’m at a buffet.
Tuesday 6:00 p.m.: I put my laundry in the wash and I’m going to do elliptical and take a bath and put on my star pajamas because I feel like a star today. I think I’ve been motivating people too, because I’ve been getting messages that say, “Way to go Panda!’ and “That’s great!” I have a Halloween costume that I’m putting together. I want to be Madonna from the 1980s. Meghan is helping me make it. It’s almost done. She poked me with one of the pins and it didn’t hurt but I screamed like it did and she gave me ice cream to eat while she finished sewing.
Tuesday, 6:21 p.m.: I’m going to go check on the laundry. I have the “clean the washer” cycle on first, then next towels, then bedsheets, and I don’t have to do clothes because I already did them a few days ago I forget when but my clothes hamper isn’t full yet. I only do wash when the hampers are full or if I spill food in my bed or run out of towels.
Tuesday, 6:50 p.m.: The laundry isn’t ready yet so I turned on the fun lights in my workout room. I’m going to put music on and do a workout. I put soup on top of the beans in the crockpot that were left over so tomorrow I’ll have a healthy stew. I have basil out back, and that might be good on it or maybe gross, but I’m going to try it. I put more dirt down outside in the garden today and flower seeds. I forgot to talk about this earlier. I forget what time that was at but it was before the grocery store. It didn’t take very long I just threw the seeds out then opened the bag of dirt and put it on top of the seeds and then watered. I didn’t even get dirty.
Tuesday, 8:40 p.m.: I did my workout, and I put my towels in the dryer and the sheets are in the washer. I’m going to sleep in a different bed tonight, down the hall because my sheets aren’t gonna be done for like an hour maybe or more. Meghan is going to finish it for me and also do my pillows she said. The stew is in the same room I get to sleep in. I’m supposed to just go to bed tho’ and save it for everyone tomorrow, but I don’t know what’s going to happen. Goodnight! Xoxo, love, Panda.
WEDNESDAY By Me, Panda
Wednesday Morning, 9:27 a.m.: I ate the stew last night. There is no stew for today. It’s fine tho’, because after I ate it I went in the cupboard and found more soup and put it in the crockpot. It’s split pea soup tho’, it’s a different color and people are gonna notice. It tastes delicious tho’, so I don’t think anyone will be upset. I’m watching the Kardashians right now. I brushed my teeth and took my gummy vitamins (no ranking today; I ran out of one of them so it’s not even a fair competition anymore). I’m going to see if I can find this one cat I like. It lives in cardboard boxes and is so fluffy but dirty. I love this cat. I call it Mrs. Sugar. If I see her I’ll take a picture.
Wednesday, 1:45 p.m.: I haven’t seen the cat yet, but I am sitting on the floor watching Criminal Minds. The neighbors next door have their gardeners over, and they are making so much noise so I shut the door by that window. I just found out what an HOA was and everyone is like blah about them, but I think if everyone’s gardeners came on the same day and just got it over with I’d be a little bit less agitated sometimes. Like when I’m trying to film things I have to wait for the BAAAAAUUUUUZZZZZZ to stop. And I just want to do what I want to do and not have to wait.
Wednesday, 2:07 p.m.: I just found out I’m not going to see the cat today because we aren’t driving to Hollywood. Mrs. Sugar lives in Hollywood in a box on the street, but I’ll get a picture of her soon. She’s beautiful. I have to find something else to do today now tho’, but that’s ok I like finding things to do. I’m not upset. I hope Mrs. Sugar has enough to eat tho’ because I have tuna cans in my backpack that I was going to give her.
Wednesday, 6:42 p.m.: Cooper and I are watching Space Jam. We ate chicken together and now we are watching a movie together. Meghan and Aldramark are working on my show in the other room with ideas that I gave them to give to Mark. I hear screaming downstairs, but I think it’s ok. Sometimes people scream. It’s not my fault and it’s not Meghan screaming tho’, so I’m gonna stay out of the way.
Here is a picture of me and Cooper watching the movie :
I have a little bit of a headache so I might go to bed soon. I think I have done a pretty good job of promoting the promos today.
Wednesday, 6:50 p.m.: Quack! Quack! Quack! The ducks just flew over the house and every night they fly over and they go, “Quack! Quack!” I love it. The ducks make me happy. Goodnight Diary, I will see you tomorrow. Xoxo, love, Panda
Thursday, 8:39 a.m.: I’ve decided to dress up like a glamor lady today. I am going to make soup in a fancy dress with feathers on the sleeves and Aldramark and I are going to have a tea party. Aldramark is making the tiny sandwiches right now. The sandwiches are chicken nuggets with broccoli and cauliflower on the side and then we have chai tea. I have peppermint tea, too, but chai is better. I will take pictures when the party gets going. Here is some food prep pics tho’:
Thursday, 12:29 p.m.: Oh, this tea party was just fabulous! We had delicious food and teas from around the world, and we laughed and talked and sang and just had a blast. Here are some photos … I need to go clean up. Oh, what a wonderful day this is! Xoxoxo, love and hugs, Panda
Thursday, 4:10 p.m.: I think we are going to have another party again tonight. Some of the stuff from earlier is still out. Like hats and fun costume things. I put all my socks away. I’m going to lay down for a nap for a little bit and watch TV. I don’t know what’s on. There’s Judge Judy, Mom, Law & Order, or Keeping up with the Kardashians. I choose Khloe. It’s the episode where they are going skiing. Kourtney and Kim are going down the slopes! One of them just went under the other one’s legs like a moving bridge! I like that. Meghan just told me to write, “Khloe and Scott should get together.” I have to write my own sentence now. Maybe that was it. Not that one. The one before it. Like three sentences before this one. Xoxox, Panda
Thursday, 8:26 p.m.: I got to go on Insta Live until Meghan made me get off. I had a good time, I saw my friends from UG! Comedy, they are in New York. I wore pajamas. Earlier a box of costumes came and I helped put those away, and now I have to get ready for bed so I’m going to make sure all the windows are closed and the lights are off! Goodnight! Xoxox, Panda
My Diary for FRIDAY
It’s FRIYAY! 9:16 a.m.: I made myself breakfast from yesterday’s tea party food. It’s so delicious. There’s screaming again today downstairs, but if I put the jets on in the bathtub I can’t hear it and also I have a Bluetooth speaker.
I’m watching Angelina Jolie E! True Hollywood Story. I want an E! True Hollywood Story about me, Panda.
Friday, 12:55 p.m.: I just woke up from a nap. I set an alarm for noon, but I hit snooze a lot. I am awake now and sitting on the floor. I also found out my Panda’s Dance Party Volume 3 music is ready to be released soon I think Meghan said this weekend or next … I was too excited to listen carefully because I knew it was happening regardless. I’ll find out the release date again and let you know. I’ll just ask in a casual way so no one knows I wasn’t listening. I’ll just bring it up like, “I can’t wait because in two days my third album is coming out!” And then Meghan or Mark or whoever will correct me and be all, “No Panda! It’s coming out in blah blitty blah days!” And then I just count on my fingers and then the calendar.
Friday, 6:28 p.m.: I saw Mrs. Sugar!!
I had a good day. I tried to put Mrs. Sugar in the car to take her home with me but she ran away. I’m going to go take a bath and then go on the elliptical and take another bath and then jammies and then bed. Goodnight!! Xoxo, Panda
Super Important SATURDAY Update
Saturday, 12:37 p.m.: I just sat down for lunch and LOOK! Two of my chicken nuggets have faces. One of them is more of a face than the other one but I wanted to post these for all of you before I eat them.
