I am the proud father of Andrew Volpe’s babies. Sure, the name on the birth certificate is simply “St. Louis” but I’m sure my performance during “Whipped Cream” in August was enthusiastic enough.
Half of the people who read this will understand it. The other half will be perplexed, embarrassed and possibly intrigued. For those who really want to know, follow this link.
If you weren’t offended by that video and accepted it for the upbeat satire it was, high five! If you shut it off and aren’t reading my blog anymore…fine. It must be a sad place inside the mind of a person who didn’t laugh and join in the dance. <end pretentiousness >
Anyway. The point of this post isn’t to mock people who may or may not be in need of mocking. Rather, you may recall me mentioning a few days ago (http://allysonssetlist.com/2011/09/29/weekly-setlist/) that my Ludo ticket for A Very Ludo Christmas had been mailed.
Well, it got here today.
Is that my Ludo ticket resting on my legs bearing Christmas red and green striped knee socks because I got so excited for the concert that I started singing Christmas carols and wanted to dress the part for opening the envelope from Ticketmaster and finally getting my hands on The Red and Green Ticket?
No. That’d be weird.
