Out of the Blue

Well our plans, or lack thereof, for New Years Eve may turn out to be a blessing, as MrsBlue is feeling a bit under the weather, so staying home may be the order of the day after all. There's still plenty of time for her to shake whatever she's picked up though, so we will just have to see how this all plays out.

On the other hand, if it had happened in a movie theater...

Hopefully, after the first one, everyone else in the theatre would turn theirs the fuck off?

Na, who am I kidding?

Reminds me...I got to see Steven Wright in Vegas a year or two ago. He comes out, and starts right into the routine, no "thank you" or "nice to be here" or anything. Suddenly, it's the 1980s all over again.

About 3/4 of the way through the show, as he's talking, someones cell phone rings. He ignores it, and goes on.

5 Minutes later, it rings again!

And Steven, in that same deadpan, animated corpse voice he has, says:

"You gonna turn that fucking thing off, or are you waiting for the battery to die?"

The crowd went wild!
