Broadway Bound

Well! Just look at what I just received in my Inbox!

See, my theory is that The Company Wot Sent These Invites will Google around to see who posted the invite and who didn’t. And then those people will pay. Oh, boy, will they pay. I’ve already seen the actual invites posted all over the place.

Jeez. It’s as though nobody remembers the end of “Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory.”

(But seriously. The Company Wot Sent This wouldn’t have set up this event this way if they weren’t OK with the information getting out. The obvious rule is that you don’t expect people in the press to keep a secret unless you ask them “Are you willing to keep this a secret?” before you tell the secret.)

In unrelated news, I’ll be in New York early next week for the world-famous citrus parade. Ever since I was a little kid, I and my loved ones would spend the second Tuesday of January gathered around the TV, watching the live coverage.

“Are all of those floats really made out of tangelos, grapefruit, and clementines, Daddy?” I’d ask. I could hardly believe what I was seeing.

“Well, that’s what Willard Scott just said, isn’t it?” he said. “And the weatherman of the Today Show couldn’t say it if it wasn’t true. Look, son, isn’t that Gil Gerard from ‘Buck Rogers’ waving from the Juices For Nuclear Disarmament float?”

“It is!” I’d squeal. “It really is!” And then I’d wave back, even though I knew full well that Buck Rogers couldn’t see me. Oh, the charm and innocence of childhood!

And now I’ll be able to see it in person! Golly!

    LOL I love that you don’t mention it in the post directly (except for the fruit references, you’re too clever) but then put it in the APPLE category :P

    Mr Ihnatko you’re a brilliant man and a pleasure to have on this Earth.

    Ok I’m off the floor now and breathing unassisted…

    I don’t think therapy would do either one of us any good so I’ll just start drinking now.

    Are you going to be live on Twit? Leo mentioned you are going to be there.

    The good news? iPhone will be on another carrier in the US.

    The bad news? You’re still holding it wrong!


    Actually, I’m a happy iPhone 4 user on AT&T in FL, and have had 0 problems. I live in a stucco home with a wire mesh under the stucco that acts like a faraday cage, and I can still make and receive calls .. shrug. Most of the people I know around here hate Verizon more than AT&T.

    Choice is good.

    Real 4G would be better (on both AT&T and Verizon)
