WOMR, our community radio station, is having a birthday. Since they threw themselves a party, there was no need for us to sit home eating cake. In fact, we were asked NOT to sit home eating cake. Interestingly, we were not invited based on my charm and wit. We were invited because Chris is indispensable and can be counted on to not eat the roast beef sandwiches.
I know a few people at WOMR and a whole lot more look familiar. I probably look familiar to them, too. They look at me and say to themselves, "hmmm, where have we seen her before? Oh right, we saw her the last time we offered free food."
It's not always free, but I do usually show up at the things they do which involve food. Boogie on the Bay, for example.
Today there was a huge line-up of musicians, including Jerry Nelson. You may THINK you don't know who Jerry Nelson is, but you do. He is the voice of the Count on Sesame Street. See? We listen to Really Famous People. We left during his set.
We didn't leave because of him. We left because Studley was starting to be a bit of a menace and I felt like we should get a move on before catastrophe struck. Also, there were so many people showing up, I was afraid if we didn't leave soon we'd have to exit out the back window. We didn't miss the show, though. They were broadcasting live and we were able to listen in the car on the way home. A live broadcast is the way to go if you always leave a party and wonder if they talk about you when you've gone (they didn't).
Speaking of Studley, someone addressed Sugarplum as Sugarplum and made her Entire Day. Which is saying something, considering we were in the same room as the voice of the Count.
But there was no cake. So now, even though I'm supposed to be doing things like laundry and excavating the livingroom, I have to make brownies. You can't celebrate a birthday with no baked goods, no matter how delicious the portobellos are.
I ate a lot of portobellos.
If you'd like to offset the expense of my presence at the WOMR party, would you consider making a donation? There's a field at the bottom of the form where you could maybe say that you hope they keep inviting Susan at Trout Towers to their shindigs.
We'd sure thank you. I'll even send you a Cape Cod Beer bumper sticker if you want (I don't think they'll mind having their stickers splashed all over your bumpers. Email me your address).
