Dear Ellen, Hello. It’s me again, “Honey.” As you know, over the past year, I have written to you six times requesting to be a guest on “Ellen.” SIX! And no response. NOT ONE!! As I previously stated, I love everything about your show, that is, except for those two annoying little British girls.
I would rather poke my eyes out with a hot poker than watch “Tea Time.” They are soooo obnoxious. But I digress. I’ve racked my brains trying to come up with a reason why you wouldn’t want Honey to be your guest, and the only thing I can come up with is that I didn’t share enough personal information. So, with that in mind, here are “Seven Things You Don’t Know About Me.” Thing #1: I’ve actually been to Germany. In fact, I lived there for four years. While there, at no time did I try to bring a monkey into the country. Thing #2: I have travelled all over the world, gone through hundreds of Customs and Immigrations Check Points, but not once, did I rip off my shirt as I passed through the Metal Detector. Not once. Thing #3: I have never, ever raced around a gated community in my Ferrari. Ever. Thing #4: And, as God is my witness, I did not spit at or on any of my neighbours. Thing #5: I did not have anyone help me write books about myself, because I am an accomplished, gifted writer. All thesignswere there at an early age. Here is an excerpt from my yet to be published memoirs. July 11, 1971 Today I got up. I ate breakfast. It was good. Sonja (A friend) , Shannon (My sister) and I went outside and played. We had lunch. It was good. Then, we went swimming. The water was cold. Then, we had supper. It was good. Then, we watched TV. It was good. I went to bed. I fell asleep at 10:21. Gifted. Thing #6: At no point, did I leave a crowd waiting for two hours for live music. In fact, this one time, during a band’s break, I jumped on the stage and belted out a tune or two. My set ended when a band member turned off the entire sound system. Alcohol may have been involved. Thing #7: I have not won Artist of the Year, Favourite Pop/Rock Male Artist, Favourite Pop/Rock Album, Blah, Blah, Blah…. But, am thrilled to have been nominated for the following blog awards by my blogging peers: The Best Moment Award, thanks to To Fethiye and Beyond… and
Ellen, the time is nigh. We are in Las Vegas, and if you want Honey on your show, we need to know ASAP, because, and these are John’s exact words, “Jesus Christ, Shelley. There’s not a chance in Hell we are turning back, once we hit Utah.”
