Your sister's been playing the banjo lately. She loves it.

That doesn't surprise me at all! Next: pedal steel.

Hah, pedal steel...I would totally play it if it was hanging on my wall too.
But I sure do love playing a banjo! And Steve Martin is a damn genius!

downtown guy said...

That is no lie. A real song and dance man.

I just finished listening to his book Born Standing Up. He is probably one of the most intellectual comics ever to perform and that's saying a lot.

He easily meets the Hank's Three Qualifications for Friendship Meter.

Spill, please, what are Hank's Three Qualifications?

I had a long conversation with my wife last night about friendship and how we bestow that designation, and how it's shifted in light of social networking sites like Facebook...

In truth I have, other than her, one close friend who I see regularly.

People I consider friends are two of the three: funny, smart, cute. Gotta have two or we won't get along, and cute's the weak one. (This is sort of a joke and sort of not. Maybe I just think my friends are cute, funny, and smart.)
