GREETINGS INTERNET USERS
THIS RATHER POOR BLOG is pleased to announce that I, JOHN HODGMAN, will be appearing alongside my old friends COULTON and DARIN STRAUSS at a party tonight to celebrate the publication of Strauss's new novel:
MORE THAN IT HURTS YOU.
COULTON will be singing some songs.*
I WILL be reading some pages from my new book, MORE INFORMATION THAN YOU REQUIRE.
I DO NOT KNOW EXACTLY what Strauss will be doing during all of this. Sitting on a giant satin pillow, I guess, or shooting at our feet with a pistol.
NO MATTER: I am happy to dance for Darin Strauss.
ATTENTION: TRUAX. I have a copy of Darin's book for you, signed by the author, and I will send it along forthwith. And by forthwith I mean: WITH FORTH!
SORRY TO THE MYSTERIOUS GL3NN and his faction. I did not understand his cryptic response to my trivia question (was it a rebus or something?), and so I reward TRUAX for being the first to answer in a clear, forthright manner, by which I mean: RIGHT FORTH!
IF YOU WANT A COPY OF DARIN'S BOOK, GL3NN, come to the party, and I will buy you one.
AND TO THE REST OF YOU, by all means, come to the party.
