I'm feeling great this morning. No headache, no nausea and only twice have I ran up to a stranger saying...
"Are you the Key Master? I am the Gate Keeper!"
I think I'm fine.
So fine, in fact, that I wanted to share the first of a few of my favorite Christmas videos from YouTube.
This is the promo for Aunt Barbara's Christmas Special. We love our Aunt Barbara and this video is made even funnier for me because of a joke in Lyle.
You see, at the first read, I had a line in one of my songs that went like this...
"Together, we will rise to the top again, just like Crosby and Hope. Martin and Lewis. Flotsam and Jetsum."
But when I read it - - me being the asshole that I am - - I wanted to shake up the reading and get a laugh from something off the page, so I said...
"Together, we will rise to the top again, just like Crosby and Hope. Martin and Lewis. Shields and Yarnell."
Well, I got my laugh. Big time.
The room exploded with laughter and George Howe who wrote the song shouted, "That it! That's in the show."
And you'll notice from Aunt Barbara's video that Shields and Yarnell are also mentioned.
