Hey kids! Happy Friday!

On a follow up note in the ongoing Adventures of Steanso, I am now planning on actually going on a vacation to Jazzfest in New Orleans with the Wilsons, Blooms, and Jackbart Mitchell. I am really looking forward to it, and I hope none of us gets arrested. Many sincere and heartfelt thanks to The League of Melbotis and Reed Shaw for inviting me on other trips. I wish I had the money to just rent a beach house somewhere and just invite all of my friends (and select family)to come and stay for awhile. Maybe next year.
What else....? The lovely and talented Rosa Theofanis is shopping for a sofa, and is apparently quite picky (some might say too picky, but I would never disparage Rosa in such a way). If anyone has any leads on the most badass sofa they've ever seen, preferably at a low, low price, go ahead and post a comment on here, and I will forward it to Rosa.
Crack is practicing tonight, and The Amazing Letdowns are playing as well. Crackbass wants us to go see the Letdowns after Crack practice, but I have mixed feelings about this since they are playing without the talents of our friend and musical colleague, Gary Meyer.
Seeing the Letdowns play without Gary is like seeing Van Halen without David Lee Roth or (more fittingly) Spinal Tap without Nigel Tufnel. It just doesn't seem right. Anyway, I hear that Gary is going to watch the Letdowns show, so maybe we'll go and check it out and buy him a beer. I don't know.
I would also like to comment on the fact that my brother is apparently being considered as a speaker to present some opening comments before a screening of the Superman films in Beaumont, Texas. Ryan has already told me that if the invitation is formally extended, he will be presenting his remarks in a carefully crafted Jor-El outfit (for those of you who don't read funny books, this was Superman's father who died on Krypton after sending his son to live on Earth. He was played by Marlon Brando in the original Superman movie).
To Jim Dedman or whichever member of the blogosphere who mentioned this possibility to Ryan: I beg you on behalf of the entire Steans clan and all of our ancestors to please reconsider. The sight of my brother, hair bleached and clad in a poorly modified white bathrobe with a giant "S" stenciled on the front, hollaring at and deriding audience members who don't know the difference between red and green kryptonite will be enough to set back the reputation of the Steans family for at least another decade or two, and frankly, given our general lack of coolness, we can't afford to take the hit.
Oh crud. Client here to see me. I'll see if I can post more later.

I'm not sure, but I think I've heard that they will put it all together and save you more at The Roomstore.

I think your friend should learn that it's probably cheaper, though less satisfying, to just stand.

Has she tried just putting her bags of trash in the middle of the living room in a sort of couch shape?

.....is pure greatness. The sad part is that Ryan made that bath robe costume years ago and is just now having an opportunity to use it. It could be worse, he could be like that dude who's been floating around the internet in the form of a homemade Tron outfit consisting of tight spandex showing off his glow-in-the-dark package. Ryan, once upon a time I would have echoed these sentiments. But who really cares now ? You're married. If Jaime has made it this far into your marriage without waiving the white flag of divorce and has actually permitted you a 'comic book budget', I imagine your marriage will survive you hitting the comic-book/superman fan club circuit.

My advice to Rosa.....no interest, no payments for like 2 years. Use now, pay later, or don't.

Thanks for the tips from Jason's friends! Despite the naysayers, I found the perfect, affordable couch on Craig's list, this weekend! - Rosa

The League said...

Congrats to Rosa for locating the couch to meet all of her reclining/ sitting needs.

I've got to admit Peabo is correct on this one. Now that I'm married and not worried about scaring off anybody, it's a heck of a lot easier to just let your freak flag fly.

The best part is, Jamie just doesn't care. At all. If I wanted to start wearing blue spandex with red underwear on the outside, she'd just want to make sure I used a strong enough anti-perspirant so I wouldn't get pit stains.

I don't know why jason is so worried about me embarassing him in public. He's the one playing in both the Mono Ensemble and Crack.

Hoo-AHHHHH

Reed said...

I agree with Ryan and Peabo. Things do change considerably after you're married (for both people). You start to realize that things like working out may not have been entirely motivated by good health alone (I see far more single people at gyms than married ones). I know I care a lot less about what I wear out now than before I was married since I'm not looking to pick up any girls (of course I wasn't that concerned with my clothes pre-marriage).

"I don't know why jason is so worried about me embarassing him in public. He's the one playing in both the Mono Ensemble and Crack."

Ouch. Excellent point. Even though it hurts a little since I'm a member of Mono E. Message received. Jas will stop sending you cds.

Steanso said...

I was supposed to be sending Ryan CDs?

Reed said...

Well, I don't know if you were supposed to. I just assumed that you had sent some cds to The League at some point. I had an incorrect assumption.

The League said...

Ah, Reed. You take my little joke too seriously.

Clearly Jason isn't meant to be embarassed by playing with the Mono E. He should be much more embarassed at being seen in public with CrackBass.

CrackBass said...

damn you ryan. i am no longer an embarassment in public. the acne is gone, ive had my extraneous fingers and toes removed or merged, and i have successfully received hair implants. and i shower now, with soap. while the rest of you foolios have gone downhill since getting marrie, i just keep on getting better (and sadly, larger, but not in a sexy, "he is ripped" way). if only you lived here, i would hire someone to kick your ass. preferably someone wearing a pirate costume. however, as my wife is from beaumont, if you do go to the suped-up man show, i m sure ill have no problem finding some fellas to beat you up then.

we miss and love you. please come build jason a porch

CrackBass said...

oh yeah, and why the hell hasnt steanso published a new entry today? this is all that gets me through the workday, even though i am actually at home now

The League said...

I'll only help Jason build a porch if he agrees to design it before I show up. I'm not spending two days with our hands on our hips in the back yard going "I dunno... what do YOU think it should look like?"

Reed said...

I didn't take your little joke that seriously Ryan. I just had to throw a jab back (which wasn't successful since you've never heard us play before).

My most enjoyable blog reading on your two sites is sadly when you and Jas are making jokes at the expense of one another. Just because I got caught in the fray of your last joke, doesn't mean I want you to stop them. If a couple of innocent bystanders get taken down for the sake of a joke on one of the Steans boys so be it. I'm just not witty on the responses like you, your bro, and crackbass.

The League said...

Ah, Reedo. Don't get so glum. We just don't want to make fun at anyone's expense.

And I did hear you play at at least one Reed/ Eric birthday bash. Why do you think I've requested Jason not send any CD's?

Hoo-ahh!

See how all of that circles back into hilarity?

Hello? Hello? Is this thing on?
