Of course - now it will probably rain or something, but we're going to hope for excellent picnic/party weather.
I am inspired to search for an enormous number of kazoos. Can ANYONE help out with a referral? Imagine our group, kazooing happily away, as some of the more gregariASS members of our number cavort through the crowd, distributing kazoos to anyone who will take them - and then gathering as many people together as we can for an impromptu concert of patriotic songs.
Does this sound utterly stupid to you? Fine, stay home!
For those of you who are willing to peel off your ego for a second (what good has it ever done you ANYWAY, might I ask - think about that one for a while), imagine how truly awesome this could be...not just for our group - but for all those people who happen to be there at the time - a chance to come together and participate in "making a joyful noise" celebrating the bravery of those who stuck it out that scary night of bombardment back in 18-whichever year it was, I'm too lazy to look it up, slept through US History, SORRY!
Inside most everyone is that kid who loves to play a kazoo, and is too untouched by the cruel world to care what they look or sound like. Would you like to escape out of that shell of self-consciousness for a little while and feel what it's like to have fun without a single worry of whether or not you look stupid? Because trust me, you will be in a whole lot of excellent company!
So - first - pray for great weather - we don't want to get rained out here. Second - who knows where I can get a ridiculous number of kazoos for a low unit price? Third - consider coming out and saying hello, even if you haven't been to event in a long time, or EVER. Ideally, we will have a sort of pot-luck picnic. I think a sheet cake could very likely materialize. Let's do this up!
In the words of Jack Nicholson, are you 'Suckered in, set up, pushed around?' Don't worry, whatever you've been doing thus far is not As Good as It Gets.
Are you saddled with an active brain, a healthy dose of cynicism, a great sense of humor with a sharp wit (maybe even some acerbic sarcasm), bit of shyness, possibly a latent mental disorder or two, some good old fashioned baggage, and perchance stuck between arrogance and lacking self-confidence? Do others see you as aloof but in reality, you know deep down you're awesome but you just can't bear the thought of trying to convince others when they should really just 'get' you?
Are you into music, wine, beer, great food, and conversation (when it's needed - otherwise silent pauses are allowed), but tired of doing it all alone or being let down by others (in a myriad of ways)?
Shall we rant and rave? Eat and drink till dawn?
