Tim On Tour: Washington, DC (Lost Post, Found)
Tim entered this post a week ago, but somehow it got all jumblied in the machine, and is only now seeing the light of day. The machine apologizes to Mr. Charming and his angry minions.

Oct. 24, 2005

Greetings, my good and fair public.

Tis I, Timothy Charming, reporting from our nation's capital, Washington DC. If one was to take a look at OK Go's rigorous touring schedule, one might conclude that OK Go is not playing in the District of Columbia for another week. At this juncture, one might also begin to wonder to oneself, "Then why, Mr. Timothy Charming, are you sending us messages from the Capital City?" Well, my little chickadees, I'll tell you: Today is the coveted day off.

In rock and roll, a day off is not unlike the day off of a lawyer, doctor, electrician, or topographer. Major label recording artists like myself use these days to tend to laundry and dry cleaning, catch up on email, return phone calls, see family and bathe (time permitting). If a band member like myself is really lucky, then he might have the pleasure of day-ing off in a city where darling young ladies like my two year-old niece Ellie live.

Tonight I happened to be just that lucky. I dined with my adorable niece, who taught me these important lessons about life and myself:
  • I drink out of a big boy's glass.
  • It is not OK to draw on the table with crayons.
  • Being a cow for Halloween is exciting.
  • Saying 'Uncle Timmy' is not as easy as it seems.
  • Saying 'Uncle Timothy Charming' is going to be even more of a challenge.
  • Baths are fun!
  • Time outs are a bummer.
  • Putting things away is a chore.
  • I am funny looking.
  • My hat is funny looking too.
  • Hugs and kisses from my two year-old niece, whom I seldom see, are about as sweet as it gets.
So there you have it, my darling dears. Tomorrow I am off to Philly, home of Bell, Biv, DeVoe, ABC, and the East Coast Family. Hopefully I wiil see you, Bell, Biv, DeVoe, ABC, and the East Coast Family in the next days to come. Until next time remember this: as long as i am blogging, you will never walk alone.

Live it,

Timothy Charming xo

I actually know people who roll their eyes and wretch behind the backs of folks who tell cute stories about their kids/nieces or nephews, etc. I hate that. I love those stories. I love your story Timothy Charming.

Once when I was babysitting a 3-year old, she found a stick on the road and decided that it was a magic wand. I asked her to turn me into a princess with it, so she did. Then when I asked her what wish she wanted to have granted, she said that she wanted to be a princess too, and she added, "but I'll be the pretty one."

Gotta love 'em.

Wow. I think OK Go is great...but is this blog for real? I have seen so many fake "real" sites of bands/celebrities/cool people.

Either way. Have a good one!

Please excuse the cynic. It just sucks making a big deal out of something then looking like an idiot later.

I have been told that dressing up like a cow is truly great fun too. I learned it from a 12 year old tho.

I've been told that dressing up as a cow was exciting, too. Only instead of from either a 2 year old or a 12 year old, it was from an 18 year old. Apparently cow costumes are exciting to kids of all ages.

Timothy Charming, darling, your stories about your niece were the most precious thing I've ever read in my life. I feel the same way about my nephew-he's 3, and probably the sweetest thing in the world.

I'm glad spent your day off well-hopefully you also got your laundry done as well.
