My Dad would be smiling now

My dad was a dancer with his two brothers on the variety hall stage before WWII -- they toured the length and breadth of Great Britain -- they must have been pretty good, because they were once in a Royal Command Performance before the Queen (and only the best of the best were invited to thing slike that). I have some of their original posters advertising the show on my family room wall.

I bet if he could have seen this 7-foot tall poster billing me as "Max The Magnificent" he would have a great big smile on his face. I miss my dad.

I imagine he or she will be taking you to the nearest UBM Management Spa & Day Resort -- I hear they have them scattered across the country -- that's why it's always so difficult to get hold of them -- they say they are in meetings or on conference calls, but the rosy glow of their skin and the way they glisten (drip, in some cases) with aromatic oils tells another story....

And you wonder why they don't let you out very often...

"Hit me," begged the masochist.

"No," replied the sadist.

Hey Max, it would be great to see some video of the smackdown after EELive, if you can manage it.

I agree -- sad to relate, my Flip Video camera recently "bit the dust" -- but I'll see what I can do :-)

I'm sure you have enough time between then and now to make one. ;-)
