The other day Old Man Bobby and I were listening to some Sketching in Stereo and talking about our buddies from the band. I was shocked to find that Rob had been hit by a cab in NYC. I didn’t even know Rob was in NYC! Old Man Bobby promised Rob was OK, and went on to ask if Charlie’s troubles were over. Neither of us knew. (We’re thinking of you Chaaaarrrlieee!)

Imagine my surprise when the very next day I read on Letters to Twilight that Robert Pattinson had been hit by a NYC cab. What a coinci–! My thought process went something like this: “Son of a bitch! Old Man Bobby let me go on and on about Rockstar Rob and didn’t tell me he was talking about RPattz! How embarrassing! I’m glad it was just us in the car.”

So later I told him I had a bone to pick. The use of the word Bone always gets his attention, naturally. When he caught on to my tone he got a little nervous. I chastised him for letting me go on and on about Rockstar Rob like that. He had no idea what I was talking about. I reminded him we had been talking about Sketching in Stereo, then he told me about Rob, and then we started talking about Charlie, and I asked him what part of that conversation was supposed to clue me in that he was talking about RPattz. Warn a girl when your mental train jumps the tracks for crying out loud!

He was embarrassed enough that I didn’t even bring up the fact that he had referred to Robert Pattinson simply as Rob AND expected me to follow along. Not as Your Rob. Not as Rob Pattinson. Not as RPattz. Not even as The Forehead, as he normally does. Just Rob. Anyone know how to spot a Unicorn in camouflage?

BTW, I’m glad you’re OK Rob! Both of you!

As you know, I’m a Sketching in Stereo fan. I thought I’d let you know about their upcoming dates.

March 8, yes today technically, they will be playing at Hot Topic at Tempe Marketplace. I think I may be there. They have some upcoming dates in CA, too. Maybe you can go check out my friends.

Check it out! Sketching in Stereo found my humble blog! I’ll have to figure out how to sell their post on eBay some day. 🙂

I’m telling you, Old Man Bobby and I are enjoying the heck out of their CDs. Great stuff.

This post is very late. I apologize to my Sketching in Stereo friends. Your December 5, 2008 show was amazing. I knew you were good. I’d heard you on your MySpace page, but I didn’t not expect the stage presence. Well done! I look forward to more shows and more CDs. Remind me again why you weren’t on the Twilight Soundtrack.

PS Technicolor Dreams has become the playlist for my novel.
