It's clear to me that sometimes, I can be a dork. - A little less than a happy high

It's clear to me that sometimes, I can be a dork.
On a whim this morning while listening to Melody du Jour on WZBC, I called the station just as a ticket giveaway was announced. Nothing too out of the ordinary here, right? Much to my surprise, the phone rang and I got through on the first try. I won something! I'm a winner! I'm on a radio station guest list!

My adventure doesn't even stop there! When I was talking with Alexandra, I got her laughing with the horrible Americanization of my name. And, for the record, young women with French accents make me go a little woobly. Ok, maybe a lot woobly.

Now, I wish I could say that I scored something that would make me the envy of friend and foe alike, or maybe even ensure my place amongst the "cool kids" once and for all, but I've no such luck. I'm on the VIP list alright, but it's for the 7:30 showing of Capote at the Coolidge tonight.

Go me!

Just wanted to say that I like his debonaire chapeau. (The icon, that is.) Quite fetching.

That, and enjoy the movie.

It's all part of my war on Christmas...

The irony is that I probably won't be able to make it. I'm on puppy duty this week, and I'm having a hard time wrapping my head around commuting to Cambridge to walk them in this mess only to turn around and trek back to Brookline for the mooovie.

That, and I've got no one saying, "OOoooo... take me!" is putting a damper on things.

At the risk of getting a hesitate/masturbate refrain, I really don't think that coming on to a ZBC dj as a first-time caller in a ticket giveaway would get me very far. I'm sure there are folks who can do it, but they're far more smooth than I've ever managed.

Besides... um?

Your last name always reminds me of Filo Dough. I know it's not pronounced like that, but I always think of it that way, for some weird reason.

I lied the other day. The best at-work typo I've ever received involved a letter that was addressed to a "Mr. Dildo."
