Random thoughts: Elmo vs RJA

on Posted by Rajesh J Advani
I visited my colleague's house again on Friday. Her daughter (she's 23, not 20, by the way) was quite glad to see me, again. She kept talking to me in gibberish from the minute she saw me, and jumping around the room on her matchbox-sized feet. The word sweet doesn't do justice to her.

My joy was short-lived, though. She dumped me for Elmo soon after. I guess it's hard for a 26-year-old guy in a suit to compete with a red furry monster with a girl's voice. *sigh*

(Observation for the day: If you have a cup of hot - and I mean scalding hot - soup in your hand, and the cup contains a stirrer that you put in it to keep the instant soup mix from settling to the bottom of the cup, try to remember that the stirrer is not a thin straw, even though it functions pretty well as one. Because that's not why you put it there. And scalding hot liquid rushing through a thin plastic cylinder to the middle of your tongue... I think you get the idea.

Do you think it's okay to put burn ointment on your tongue?

Ppppppppffffffttt. Yuck. I think not.)

Thankfully, no. That would have been shooting myself in the foot.
And the Elmo was on TV.

(pssst. You anyone I know?)

Elmo rocks. :)

I'm 19 and *I* can still sing Elmo's song.

"This is the song,
Na na na na
Elmo's song.
Na na na na
Na na na na
Elmo's song!

He wrote the music,
He wrote the words...
That's Elmo's song!"

Please don't beat me up? Maybe you could get her a tickle-me-Elmo soft toy... she might just fall at your feet and worship you. :)

Hope your tongue gets better.

Elmo rocks? And I thought he only did jazz...

Nice song, btw. I'll be sure to use that as my serenade. And I'll use the Red Elmo soft-toy instead of the cliched Red Roses.

Valentine's day, here I come!

PS: Tongue's much better now. Burnt my thumb in the oven, though. As a result, I now use oven mitts. :)
