That was the BEST awesome possum I ever heard!

Paul - I think George may be hiding this from you, he hasn't stopped, I don't want to be the big mouth so don't tell him I told you, maybe at Christmas you can organize an intervention with your family.

Steve - Can we find some smarty pants person to make that my ring tone on my cell phone? I would give anything...

Merry Merry Christmas.

hey! you sound like a really cool person and i would love to meet you!! i really love your site and your music!!

I'm really not that cool. I have mental problems.
anyone who would actually record themselves saying "awesome possum" isn't right in the head.

That being said, I think you should come to a show in a city near you. If you aren't into it, you can always just get drunk at the bar and meet other weirdos.

Excellent. Troy Lee Wells this is your assignment to have completed by NYE. I believe in you Peter Pan.
and Emily, Steve is right, sometimes I don't even go to the shows for the music, I just go to meet weirdos.

Posted by: Carence at December 21, 2003 12:46 PM

Yay for weirdos! What if weirdos were possums in disguise? Every evening the possums gather at bars, their tails tucked in baggy trousers, appearing unshaven and slurring about Nietzche's eternal return and Archibald MacLeish. Now, that would be awesome.

Great pernt. I personally would trade Manny Ramirez and two triple A possums for A-Rod. At least one of the possums would have to be a southpaw with some serious junk. Maybe one day one of the possums would ham 'n egg its way to The Show, and would have to pitch to A-Rod in the ALCS or something. The possum, as they are wont to do, would understandably need to set the tone and control the tempo- especially in a park like Fenway. I imagine the possum would chew on some of the grass behind the mound, before coming at Alex with some high heat. Possums love giving the high heat. Eventually, A-Rod would take that high cheese shit deep to the Monster, but it would go down as a memorable at-bat.

my dream has come true!

carence, you're right. i haven't quit saying it at all. i can't help myself.

remember, don't drink and drive.

SUCCESS! well sort of, I converted the awesome possum mp3 into a wav file, so now at work whenever I receive and e-mail instead of the typical microsoft alert sound I have Steve saying "whoa, that's awesome possum".

This will have to do until Troy Lee Wells hooks up my celly.

peace and chicken grease.

Looks like I'll be switching from email to PMs. I refuse to promote the possum!

Hey Steve, I'm from Hong Kong and I'm a big fan. I was so gutted when I missed your show in London 2 years ago. But I've ordered your DVD and new CD to cheer myself up at Xmas.
BTW, could u post a list of your favorite CDs/songs of 2003?

What model phone are you sportin these days Carriie?

Posted by: Troy Lee Wells at December 23, 2003 4:25 PM

It's a nokia, it has buttons and stuff.

It's a newer model, color screen, don't know exactly, I can play bowling on it though! woo whoo!

I know that was helpful.

I saw a possum on my way home from work on Xmas night. The little bastard ran off the side of the road before I could swerve and hit him, though! :-) I was driving all fast and reckless, cranking up "Steve McQueen"... the little marsupial was lucky he made it to the ditch alive!!! mwaaaahahahahahahahaha!!!
