  7:19pm CB1:

CB2 and Mr. B made it home safe and sound. Hope you are doing great and thanks for "redecorating"
  7:27pm drewo:

Hi Monica. Enjoying your show as always. It is our Supe Bowl soundtrack (except for the commercials - sorry).
  7:29pm monica:

super shout outs to mike tp & pals, elia en geneve, CB1, CB2, Mr. B, and Drewo~ So happy to hear from some rare souls not entirely glued to the ole football game. Much love, Monica
  7:40pm texas scott:

good sho mo
yeah,i'm watching the bo
how many mo syls till hauiku?
  7:45pm CB1:

To Texas Scott,

I think a haiku
Consists of five, seven, five,
But perhaps I jive.
  7:49pm CB1 and 2:


We really liked that 2nd La vie en Rose. But you didn't pst it. Who's it?
  7:50pm texas scott:

you no jive
five seven five
cards still alive cb...1
  7:57pm monica:

howdy texas scott, willkomen. CB's 1 & 2, can'r remember who did that other version -- something Luce. it's from an ANCIENT (not vintage) cassette.
  8:02pm texas scott:

hey monica.new to your show.I'll add to you to my fmu faves.how would you describe your style?
  8:05pm CB2:

Texas Scott - I would say Monica's style is "pant splittin' fun"!
  8:07pm mike tp:

steinski and hutch or is it cacklefruit and hutch?
  8:11pm Parq:

Howdy, Miss Monica. I, too, have heard something about a sports event of some kind this evening. I can't fill you in much, but a number of people I've met today have seem kind of worked up about it. And who is this "Bruce Springsteen" you speak of?
  8:14pm Parq:

Annnd, one possible reason that Danny Kaye is always associated with L'Amour in your mind is that he was one of the seven or eight horniest guys ever to work in Hollywood. The story of him welcoming Lawrence Olivier at JFK is one of the most vivid I've ever heard.
  8:19pm monica:

texas scott, i'm always by that question. my show description is simply, "i am but a vessel" - works well in haikus too. CB2, you better watch your moth, young man!! you too, CB1. so lovely to hear from ya parq ~ what's the deep dish on danny kaye and olivier? spill it!!
  8:24pm Parq:

Rumored by Olivier's widow, and heatedly denied by others, was that Kaye and Olivier were, as they say, more than friends. There's a great, totally unsubstantiated story about Kaye going to JFK disguised as a customs agent, and taking Oliver out of line for a strip search. In the few instances I've come across where further details are offered, the story begins to resemble "The Aristocrats".
  8:25pm texas scott:

she is a vessel
the music always rings true
i will listen now

haiku me!
  8:26pm mike tp:

danny wasnt a smuggler was he.
  8:32pm CB1:

I think you have got
What she is and she is not
Dig it, Texas Scott!
  8:35pm texas scott:

dig! dag! dug!enjoy the contents of your vessel Monica
  8:39pm mike tp:

wheres the power nozzle
  8:39pm texas scott:

long reach wipe?....sometimes i wash myself with a rag on a stick.
  8:42pm monica:

hey mike tp, i think that's what bidets are for, right? texas scott, ho bout corn cobs?
  8:44pm mike tp:

reminds me of that duo cornhole and hutch
  8:44pm CB1:

Whoa! This show's going into new territory... CB2 went to lay down but not before writing down Dr. Leonard's address.
  8:44pm Glenn L:

Long Reach Comfort Wipe. There's a real funny Super Bowl ad in there somewhere.
  8:48pm gabe:

excellent show! really enjoying this set.
  8:48pm texas scott:

...corncobs,pine cones...they all the same.
btw ,I enjoy the leonards catalogue
ever seen 'RESTROOM WORLD'....
it's a hoot.
  8:53pm monica:

YOUR HOMEWORK - Explore Dr. Leonard's this week and next week we'lol have show and tell and smell. hey there listener gabe and glenn L, thanks for tuning in!
  12:03am Ben:
