    Hello sir! I have no idea who you are yet I’ve stumbled upon your blog at 3:33am after a long weird night (as we all often do) and the three posts I’ve read were pretty enjoyable and gave me some neat things to think about. Thanks to you sir, the weirdness of this night shall continue and I’ll also have the Wait Wait theme song stuck in my head for a bit, which will inevitably revisit how sheerly irritated I am by legen-goddamn-dary anchorman Bill Curtis and how much I miss our sweet beautiful muse Carl Kasell. He remains a friend and an inspiration to us all.

    Very best to you, good sir. I wish you jolly good cheer in your trombone playing and mangina adventures.
