Next up

Esteemed readership:

A reminder that I'll be chatting with Dee Perry on the popular lunchtime radio show "Around Noon" about The Irish Hungarian tomorrow at, well, around noon EST. You can listen live in Northeast Ohio on WCPN 90.3 or online. The podcast will be available after the show airs.

And in another strange twist in the road of life, my ol' boss Frank Lewis has enlisted me to be a slam poetry team leader at Love Is a Burning Thing: A Valentine's Day Slam & Jam, which will be at The Happy Dog next Tuesday--Valentine's Day--from 7 to 9 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.

Something you should know about The Happy Dog: herein you can walk up to the bar and hand the nice young man or woman $2 and they will hand you a can of the coldest Carling's Black Label in the world, which is a pure testimony to the beauty of life. They also have world-class hot dogs and coolness oozing from every corner. It is not possible to have a bad time at this bar.

The readership will note that today's photo features the Goat with a giant stone squirrel. The readership will note that the Goat's life is sometimes complicated with dubious photo shoots that are mandated by the authoress. The readership will note that the authoress does not feel compelled to tie graphic content with literal content on these pages. The readership will note that the readership is the readership. The readership will note that it's time for the authoress to end this post.

"So Michelangelo, once you're done with David what you got in mind." "I'm thinking maybe a Giant Squirrel."
WTF?(Jeff Koons?)

An ice cold can/bottle of beer is indeed a "pure testimony to the beauty of life."

This particular "readership" notes that this is your blog and you can do what ever the heck you want, here.

P.S. Have fun slamming poetry.

Where's the Moose?

She's not giving us anything MR. I guess she thinks we're just a couple of nuts.

Actually, I'm simmering in a bit of nervous stew while trying to keep my poor miserable brain somewhat neutral until the witching hour.

I just heard you on "Around Town." Somehow, I knew that voice had to be yours before Dee mentioned you. That was fun.

Nice job on Dee's show today Erin.

Jack Cluth said...

The authoress will note that the Goat is a frickin' saint.

Then again, I imagine you've figured that out by now, eh?

Erin O'Brien said...

I sure have, Jack.

Thanks to everyone who listened in on my dish with Dee. What fun!

I'm guessing there's probably some grad student over at Case Western working on a thesis about "Goat Envy."

P.S. Reader Poll:

Goat and Giant Squirrel
Woman with Giant Chicken

Behold the "Woman with Giant Chicken" to which MR refers (and good to know someone is a-spying my twitter feed).

That was RJ, forgot to sign. You wouldn't expect me to miss: "Woman with Giant Chicken" written on the home page would you?
