EMOTIONAL? ME?

Maybe it’s the fact that I’ve been a) watching Angels in America, b) just got back from visiting my friends who are mourning their father or c) wookin’ pa nub in all de wong paces, but Josh Groban’s “Remember When It Rains” just makes me melt.

I know he's young. I don’t even understand the words enough to remember them (I had to wait for the announcer to tell me the name of the song). But something about the orchestral, epic sound and the mellifluous resonance of his voice, and I’m in love. But then again, I loved his voice way back when, when he played the awkward teenager who took Ally McBeal to his prom.

I don't this Josh guy, but I just read your toilet story (Feb.). Good to start the day with a laugh. You're a great writer. And plumber.

Thanks! For those people who have forgotten my early glory days, here's the toilet piece.

Oh, I was but a wee blogger then. I didn't even have comments! But even then, I was a blogger who was also an unclogger, so that's good...

I have to love all things Josh Groban, because I actually knew the guy. He went to my alma mater, but dropped out after getting a record deal. He was buddies with my suite mate - and was the NICEST person ever. Not to mention I would stand still every time I heard him sing in the theatre building hallways... Josh rules!!
