Stephen Colbert and I have a date

I waited in line for two hours Monday, but I got primo seats to see Stephen Colbert, the hot little Catholic who has his own nighttime "news" show and wasn't afraid to bitchslap the president at the Washington press corps dinner a while back.

Two friends and myself will be taking up three seats in the center of the 8th row at the Florida State powwow on November 17. The night should be interesting. Seems there's definitely a big hype surrounding the featured talent considering the tickets sold out in no time flat. Some of the young 'uns in line still aren't sure what to make of Colbert, however. A group of college-aged kids a ways back in line think he's a Republican. If they don't get his style of humor, the show might not mean much to them.

I'm counting down the days. I'm hoping to get close enough to Colbert to either get arrested or be awarded a restraining order. That would make it a good night, indeed.

Can you see my green envy from there? I am a huge Stephen Colbert fan.

Oh, my God, I am so jealous! You should bring a big American flag with you and wave it around to get his attention. Then, you should ask if you can be the mother of his baby eagle.

Let's us know how it is. He is outstanding.

Sounds like a great plan. I'll keep an eye out for you in the news.

Good luck on this LSAT thing. Not sure why I'm leaving this note on this post. Feh. It's very awesome, what you're doing.
