UPDATE: 12/1/09: so at 2 pm on the dot yesterday, i called Paul Turner's voicemail and did my Party Trick for him. the first email i got this morning was:
I AM impressed. Well done. Thanks.
P.S. Hope married life is off to a good start, and that you'll enjoy your first Christmas as a certified couple.
WHY DID HE HAVE TO BRING MY MARRIAGE INTO THIS?!?!?!?!
so remember my Party Trick post? well obviously you do. because it is quite possibly the best one. well do you also remember my mild obsession with The Slice writer fron the Spokesman-Review Paul Turner? he was the one who printed the little blurb about my super-tight, super-enormous underwear that i wore for my wedding. anyway, i was thinking about my Party Tick, and how, even though most of you do not agree, it is the COOLEST THING EVER IN LIFE. i sent an email to Paul which sparked a friendly banter (flirtation) between us. it went as follows:
Maybe you have already asked this…but since it’s the Holidays and we all have lots of parties to attend; I would love to know what kinds of Party Tricks my fellow Spokanites have under their sleeves. For instance, I have a friend who can do the splits, another who can perfectly deliver every word in the song “Ice Ice Baby” and mine is that I can recite The Lord’s Prayer in the Old English language, a la Beowulf.
Do you have a Party Trick Paul?
This is an excellent theme, L. Thank you.
(Please send me your daytime phone number -- just for my records.)
P.S. I am about to head out. But I wonder if you would be willing to call my number some time this afternoon or tonight and give me a sampling of your trick. I'm curious and would love to hear just a little. Thanks in advance. 459-5470
DO YOU SEE THAT PEEPS? PAUL TURNER ASKED FOR MY PHONE NUMBER! EEEEEE! AND THEN HE ASKED ME TO CALL HIM! OMFG OMFG OMFG OMFG
SWEET. I’ll leave you a message in about an hour. Have a great day! You’ll be seriously impressed with my skillz.
SO, Dear Asshole Readers Who Doubted My Talents, i will be calling Paul Turner at 2 pm on the dot this afternoon and i will be leaving him a message filled with Old English Cheer. at least SOMEONE will appreciate my talent.
