Is Balsamic Chicken Thursdays a thing?
I think it’s a thing…
|—||From my new song, ‘Shaking My Keyboard Out At My Desk’|
Made a pizza out of Naan and feta and other good stuff…
Now with beer and David Wain’s newest.
"My heart goes out to you. I looked at this trying to think of a song or something profound and then I realized how hard it would be for me to even imagine this.
To not be able to hear my daughter give her vows on her wedding day to whatever lucky man or woman she ends up with, or the cries of any newborn grandchildren… The groundbreaking speech from the next generation of influential people. My wife telling me she loves me but not hearing the softness behind it. The power of the inflection.
So I would say this to you, what I would do is have a family dinner with the closest people to you. No wife and kids? Bring your cousin you havent seen in years. Bring together friends from school and kids and tell them you are going to record. Put out your smartphone or digital recorder. Start sharing stories. Ones you haven’t told or heard for years. Get every laugh. Every sigh, every I love you and every little bit of it.
Play it back to yourself periodically during the coming days. Play it softly in your ears when you go to bed. Maybe when the deafening silence comes it won’t be as traumatic because you’ll have these beautiful voices and moments captured forever until the end.
I’m sorry, so sorry but wish you well, fellow man.”
I have to present a powerpoint in a gimmicky ‘Shark Tank’ type of meeting.
My boss said they may “Throw some snarky comments like they do on the TV show, so I hope you can quip back on your feet.”
I don’t think he realizes who he put in charge of this.
"Any fool can blow something up. Any fool can destroy. But to see these firefighters and policemen, literally with buckets, rebuild… THAT’S extraordinary."
I take business meetings seriously, which is why I wait for the Q&A to play “I’m crushing your head.”
