On the way back from Kow rehearsal in Barber's car:
I had bought a Super Big Gulp to alleviate the non-liquid intake I had yesterday during work, since it was too busy for me to grab food/drink.
The four of us (Me, Dev, Barber and Canton) were, of course, just having way too much fun bantering. I was also just drinking my 7-Up like a demon. (Yeah, everyone who's ever eaten with me/hung out with me/done ANYTHING with me knows about how quickly I drink and eat. It's pretty scary to see me suck back a litre of liquid in under five minutes, or eat two cheeseburgers before we get half a block away from the fast food place.)
Canton had said something to make me threaten him with my drink. (Like that's something new...)
Me (muttered): I'll stab you with my Big Gulp.
Dev mentions Richard Gere in some form or another.
Me (muttered): I'll stab Richard Gere with my Big Gulp.
Dev turns back to me. "WHAT?"
Me: I said, "I'll stab Richard Gere with my Big Gulp." Why? What did you hear me say?
Dev: "Stan Richard Gere'd my Big Gulp."
Me: What does that even mean?
Dev: I don't know. That's why I was asking for clarification.
Barber: I didn't know that "Richard Gere" had become a noun all of a sudden.
Dev and I (in unison): Verb!
The four of us died laughing for the better part of five minutes.

I was interviewed for the Edmonton Examiner today.
Not for a position, mind you. For a write-up on Kow going into Northern Harmony later on this month.
I'll have to see how that goes...
