as you can see by wednesday's post (there was no wednesday post...), it has been a very busy week for me. i apologize for missing a day and for the lateness of this post. as you'll see below, i shoulda asked our pal, brian mulcahy to cover for me.
brian would probably qualify as the greatest perhapanauts fan ever, if, of course, he wasn't employed by us. we don't pay him.
but he did MAKE the baltimore show sing for us this year and was very successful giving out the now-coveted choopie butt cards and sellin' the heck out a handful of our FIRST BLOOD trades. he soon thereafter nominated himself as perhapanauts booth employee of the month and craig and i supported him wholeheartedly and utterly. he won by a landslide.
since the announcement of the upcoming new york show--and craig's and my attendance thereat--brian has been petitioning for the position of booth attendant night and day. (we had just assumed he'd be there to help out, though, were this heroescon in charlotte, brian would have some stiff competition from our long-time tellos and perhapa-booth intern, meagan--seen here as supergirl...)
here then, for our amusement and now yours, is the application brian sent to us the other night lobbying for the booth boy position.
Dear Todd and Craig:
Position Desired: Perhapanauts Booth Boy - NYC.
I was born to be a booth boy, its in my blood.
My father, his father and his father before him all proudly served this great country of ours as booth boys. Oh the tales they would tell around the old dinner table, but I digress.
Greene's Drug Store: Sold stuff to people who did not necessarily want the stuff, but just couldn't resist my charm and easy going manner.
Copley Plaza Hotel: Lifting really heavy stuff, not The Hulk heavy, but heavy.
Perhapanauts Booth - Baltimore: Expertly dismantled booth, although as it turned out the boss hadn't wanted the booth
dismantled at that point given that there was a whole other day to the show; expertly reassembled the booth the next day because, dang as it turned out there was a whole other day to the show - apparently Baltimore is big on crabs and working
on the sabbath; charmed the multitudes - Howard Chaykin excluded - with my boyish grin, easy going manner and expert use of the now world famous Choopie butt card; and sold a couple of TPB's when the boss foolishly left me alone for five minutes at the booth.
Date available: Two weeks notice or Friday, February 23rd, whatever comes last.
Thank you for your time and I look forward to meeting with you in person to discuss my qualifications for the position.
Brian "Kinda' rhymes with Booth Boy" Mulcahy.
P.S. You guys do have dental, right
i will post my reply in the comments section.
needless to say, you'll be able to see me, craig, rico, brian, AND the infamous choopie butt card at the new york comicon february 23, 24, & 25! we'll have a table and cards and comics to sell and, if he's not too tired, scott will be there on sunday! right, scott?!
thanks for reading! have a good weekend!
smell ya later!
oh--and here are your "five on friday"
after last week's kelsey grammer/james arness question, i got all gunsmoke on ya--sorry...
1. before the program moved to television, “gunsmoke” was one of the most popular radio programs of the day. who performed the role of marshall matt dillon and why didn’t he continue that part onto tv?
2. james arness landed the role and played matt dillon through the late fifties, sixties, and into the seventies. at the same time, his younger brother was also starring in a top rated show. who was he and what was the show?
3. prior to his tv western gig, james arness was dressed as a giant carrot in what famous sci-fi/thriller?
4. what was the first video played on mtv?
5. name the weasley's?
random picture of the week!
