Oh yeah, we got a talk show now

We talk about dangerous things
like giant, killer nectarines


Today, my tour sparked a huge high school memory. As usual, when people hear my name, they can't resist shortening it to Stew, or worse, Stewy. One person on my tour decided to take it a step further, and called me louie. Cue memory footage . . .

In High School, I was your typical band nerd (I've since realized that my seven years of clarinet playing were just preparation for things I would rather have in my mouth!) with your typical band nerd friends. Over the course of marching season my freshman year, my friends rewrote the words to Louie, Louie, creating the theme song to a talk show hosted by yours truly. The line above is from the song (a marching instructor thought I needed coercion by tickling. I fended him off by attacking him with a nectarine).

Can you imagine me as a talk show host? Look out, Oprah!

P.S. For those of you who get bright ideas. Don't ever tickle me. I'm one of those people who is painfully ticklish, and have been known to do anything to escape tickling. I would hate to have to dispose of your body (even though my roomates have established that I have the best car for stuffing bodies in the trunk!)

P.P.S. I broke 250 with my tour today! 254 people have taken my campus tour this semester. Hopefully I'll break 300 before semester's end.

"(I've since realized that my seven years of clarinet playing were just preparation for things I would rather have in my mouth!)"

I'm sorry, but that one had me rolling on the floor. I never played in the band, but I've always had pens and pencils in my mouth. Hmmm....?? :) Thanks for making me laugh with that one. :)

As far as tickling goes...so noted. I've always been very ticklish too and can't allow such things to happen for fear that once it starts whoever is tickling me...one of us will end up losing our lives. ;)

Did you pick up the Golden Compass? In anticipation, I checked the books out of the library (since I'm currently living with roomates, all my books are in rubbermaid tubs 135 miles away in my dad's barn).

and take that pen out of your mouth! (grin)

Re:
Stewart,

Sorry, I haven't had the money or the time to get to the book store to pick it up. Give me until next weekend and I promise I'll look for it. :) I don't have a great library in Holyoke to go to so if you can give me a bit longer, I'll try and pick up the Golden Compass next weekend and we can chat about it.

No pens in the mouth right now...but what's this thing sticking up....;) Never mind. Have a great night. Talk to you again soon. :)

Derek

Too funny, because some friends and I were just discussing that at the all night coffee shop, if you could blow yourself, would you? It was pretty unanimous that we wouldn't, but who knows(wiping chin)?

No rush on the book. I can be very patient when I need to be.

I'll Admit
...I have thought of it. But in discussing it with a friend, if I could blow myself I'd never leave my apartment! (handing you a tissue) Let me get that for you. :)

Thanks for the understanding on the book. I'm going to try to pick it up next weekend. Take care my friend.

Um... What do you think of trumpet players?

As musicians, I have to side with my woodwind brethren and scorn all brass players. As a man, I have to love anything that is all about lips and spit.

Ha! Ha ha! Ha Ha Ha!

You guys are all too, too funny.

...and just when I needed a good laugh, too. Oy, what a day it's been.

Being a non-musical playing person, I still consider my mouth to be a great instrument in itself. In more than one capacity. Or is it that I've experienced some amazing instruments??? It's all about oral gratification.
