Jennifer and Lisa of Those Darn Cats! have graciously received me on their podcast for a second time. I’m always thrilled to talk katnip with the kittens, though I wish this edition of Cats! was driven by something other than the premature closing of Walt Disney World’s wonderful Adventurer’s Club.
I’ve tried to explain the Adventurer’s Club to friends several times over the past year and have continually come up short. Finally, I simply drew up the “interests list” that the Club would have likely had, had it not pre-dated LiveJournal by sixty years:
Aeroplanes, absinthe, automobile racing, Around the World in Eighty Days, Ashanti Fertility Dolls, Arthur Conan Doyle, Bits O’Biffel, bullfights, Chester Babbit Rawlinson, Colonel Critchlow Suchbench, double-entendres, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Egypt, Emil Bleehal, flying carpets, French Postcards, Gypsy Rose Lee, Handsome Hathaway Browne, Harry Houdini, hoopla, Humphrey Bogart, India, intrigue, Jean Shepherd, Kungaloosh, Marilyn Monroe, martinis, Mel Brooks, Newton Hasselcrone, Papua New Guinea, Philo B. Farnsworth, pugilism, Ray Harryhousen, ribaldlry, Robert Benchley, Samantha Sterling, screwball comedy, spelunking, steampunk, Susan B. Anthony, Teddy Roosevelt, The African Veldt, The Firesign Theater, The Himalayas, The Marx Brothers, The North Pole, The Pan-Columbian Exhibition, Tom Lehrer, Tom Waits, weasel-bats
I would have kept going, but the bar napkin was only so big. Kungaloosh, my friends. May we meet again at some future hoopla.
Go listen to the podcast, dammit.
