Hey! It's midnight here and I gotta wake up a six AM but I stayed up to watch David Letterman anyway. Boy am I glad I did!
I'm a huge fan! Always have been. I even have the website on my favourites. And sometimes enter the top ten contest. You can get a free t-shirt if they use your entry. I've done, I dunno 20 or so. A LOOOONG time ago the category, "Top ten indications you're at a lame nudist colony" was the topic. THEY PICKED MINE! Here's the site. I'm number 8!
I don't think I'm getting a T - shirt though. They added the parenthetics to cover their asses and save the price of a shirt. Cheap melon forkers! But the Jessica Alba/Jessica Tandy part is all mine!
So am I a published author? Ha ha ha. This brings up all kinds of questions. I can't sleep at a time like this!!! While I was watching I was falling asleep. I didn't recognize the topic as one I'd contributed to and ALMOST didn't notice my entry. But as you know from my previous post I really like Jessica Alba and I think the process in my mind went something like, "That's something I coulda wrote. Except for the lame part about renting Cocoon. Wait a minute Alba... Tandy, I DID WRITE THAT!" And it took about a second.
Now I'm wondering how many of the other 19 have been used. I don't mind at all. It's a thrill for me. As you can tell. And I've got T-shirts. But I have to start paying more attention to the top 10 lists. Or maybe I'll record my entries somehow.
I'm number 8! I'm number 8!
I downloaded the episode and watched it on my computer again. Not the whole episode, of course. Did anyone else think number 8 got just a little more of a laugh than the others? I think I detected that the audience might have been launching into a round of applause and possibly even a standing ovation but then Letterman cut that short by reading the "go rent Cocoon" part. Dammit! Aw, how can I stay mad at Dave. I have a great deal of respect for him. He's great. No question. But those laughs are MINE, baby! Hoo Hoo Haaah Haaaah! I made people laugh. ON TV!
Now to get an episode of the Simpsons on TV. There's much to be done!
