N.B.: This is my second post today.
Surely there are things more likely to make you doubt the existence of a rational universe than spending an evening in a private room in a Japanese restaurant cum karaoke bar with twenty increasingly drunk psychiatrists singing the song from Titanic.
But I can’t think of any of them at the moment.
In other news, I am leaving town tomorrow for three weeks. I will be in parts of the country where internet access will be spotty at best and dial-up at worst. For two weeks I’ll be in Connecticut at the National Music Theater Conference. Check the schedule for Blood Drive if you’re interested in coming to a public presentation of what I’ll be working on. After that’s over, I’ll be on a top-secret mission below the Mason-Dixon line for a week.
In my absence, you will be in the hands of three supremely capable guest bloggers; the unifying thread is that I wish I could sleep with each one of them. (The unifying thread was going to be that I wish I had slept with each one of them, since I knew them all when I was single, but as one of them is a girl I ended up having to adjust.) Let me hasten to assure you that, if you’re not guest blogging, I probably wish I could sleep with you all the same. The set of guest bloggers for the next three weeks is simply a proper subset of the set of bloggers I wish I could sleep with.
You’ll be in very good hands, I promise.
We’ll miss you, BooBoo!
BTW, Dan’s URL is ultrasparky.ORG — you’ve linked to ultrasparky.com.
Below the Mason Dixon line???? Should we make up the guestroom for u?
It just tickles me to see the phrase “proper subset” appearing in your blog.
I know that when you say “the song from Titanic” you mean “My Heart Will Go On”.
However, when I read your posting–or any similar sentence–my brain supplies a missing “the” and I believe you to be talking about “the song from the Titanic“, which would be “Nearer, My God, to Thee” or “Autumn” [either the hymn or the waltz]. Or, as some iconoclasts would have it, “O God, Our Help in Ages Past”.
In any case, none of those lend themselves to karaoke performance. Much.
You should have heard me and Michael Melcher performing “Paradise by the Dashboard Light” with the help of the Sunnyside (Washington) Chamber of Commerce, though!
