Things I called "awesome" or "the best" via email in 2009

  • Martin
  • "I Want it That Way" ("the best song of the '90s")
  • The Dark Crystal
  • being "on the list"
  • rum cake
  • an Amy Hempel reading
  • a free They Might Be Giants show at a casino in Connecticut
  • a review of a steering wheel laptop desk on Amazon
  • Jon Woodward and Oni Buchanan's Halloween costumes

  1. Martin *is* the best.

    What were Jon and Oni's costumes?

    1. I very clearly remember Jon Woodward dressing up as Satan as a businessman -- full-on red paint all over his face/head, plus a suit -- but I can't remember Oni's. I found this list saved in a .txt file on my computer (I'm trying to clean up my files) so I decided to post it before deleting. I think most of these were expressed in emails to you, since you're mostly the person who gets the play-by-play of my entire life.

    1. I saw it! Right before Thanksgiving. Unfortunately I found it kind of underwhelming, but maybe disappointment was inevitable.

  3. Now that I am on the awesome/best list, I can totally confirm that being "on the list" is awesome and the best.

    I am totally neck-and-neck with TMBG and "I Want It That Way!" This is going on my CV.

    1. Under "Skills" or "Awards & Recognition"?

    2. Both. Also Education. And Publications, since I commented.

  4. Rum cake is also the best. Still.

  5. The Dark Crystal transcends bestness. It is more like: consummate. Every angel and all that.

    1. Yes, I hear tones when I think of it.
