Flat Stanley Created A Nine Year Old Skinny Lister Fan

I got an A+ last night!

Wait, that sounds like TGB and I were playing some mildly kinky sex game so let me clarify.

Last month I did the whole Flat Stanley thing for a kid named Julian in Monterey. In a nutshell, he sent me Flat Stanley and I took Stanley on adventures.

This is Flat Stanley in the Skinny Lister flagon.
One of our many adventures was the Salty Dog Cruise. It turns out that Skinny Lister is Flat Stanley's favorite band and I passed that information along to Julian.

Last night his teacher, the friend of mine who asked me if I would participate in the whole Flat Stanley thing in the first place, informed me that Julian and I got an A+ for the whole Flat Stanley project.

Becky: In response to Stanley's new favorite band... Julian said, 'my favorite band is Skinny Lister, too!' Do you even know Skinny Lister? 'No, but I still like them!'

How cool is that?

So I will be sending a nine year old some Skinny Lister CDs and a couple of other pieces of SL swag I have laying around the house.

Remember being nine and falling in love with music? Instead of pop music trifle, this kid is going to get the good stuff.

Titty sprinkles!

Postscript, did I tell you guys I fanboyed out on Michael Camino on the cruise? Yeah, I was a bit over exuberant. I told him I am going to get a tattoo of him and his bass (mostly his bass). If I could do it over again I would have been less fanboy and more Barry White.

'Sup, Michael. Dig what you do, man. 

Instead, I had diahrea of the mouth. Ohmygod! Ohmygod! Ohmygod! Ilovewhatyoudoyouaresoawesome!!!! Ah well.
