Thread Name: An Open Letter to Rick Fielding
Subject: RE: An Open Letter to Rick Fielding
I know it took me long enough, but after Saturday, you can understand how I was a bit freaked out. 'Bawk-bawk' goes the chickengirl.
We were talking about you in hospital the other day. There's this guy, Steve, who isn't all that far behind you. The nurses don't even let him doze during chemo for fear he won't wake up (he laughs and says they'd hold a pillow over his head for free publicity). Anyhow. I was trying to tell him the story about when your neighbor heard noises in her basement and you'd gone down with the hammer to rout out the bogeys ("What, no dremel?" she says "Hey, who's telling this story?" he says) and then called to tell me and we sat laughing in pajama-party giggles. I failed miserably in the telling. I tried telling it to Katlaughing too, but it loses something in translation. I'll have to file it under 'you just had to be there'...Anyway, Steve tells me: "You used to laugh 'til you cried, now you're crying 'til you cry. Bummer." That about sums it up.
I though of you today. You'll never guess who moved to town? Larry Friggin' Knechtel. No shit. A lot of whinging about how he won't live in big cities anymore, but can't get a gig in this one-horse shithole, blah-blah-blah. So much for a childhood hero. I plan on doing some brain-picking of the highest order, but I'm afraid the pan is empty. I'll let you know how it turns out.
Hang tough you, and miss you madly as ever I can
