This is the scariest podcast of Geologic because for one brief moment I fell in love with Mortimer.

Oh CarrieP... you\\\'re so damn accommodating.

Kids it\\\'s been crazy crazy... And I love each and every one of ya for your comments. Except of course for Mr. Elipses who is a chickenshit sack of my ball sweat.

Thanks to all who dug this show...

AND it\\\'s all TOTALLY REAL.

Except for the FAKE parts.

And even those are somewhat...

Hee.

More to come.

George - The cumulative effect of all your shows, the passage of time between them and the brilliance you display in laying out all the aspects and facets of who you are ( your characters ), gave the end of episode 37 more riveting and emotional impact than any other podcast I\\\'ve listened to. The fact that you chose Mortimer to be your mouthpiece for the ending was dramatic genius. The fact that this is more than an exercise in audio drama for you is evident though, and I empathize with you more than I ever thought I could with a relatively complete stranger. But what you said through Mortimer at the end should be in everyone\\\'s handbook of life.
I hope only the best for you.

Dear Listeners-

The Maestro has been out of town quite a lot lately. Since he hasn\\\'t had the wherewithal to respond, I want you to know that he has breezed into the studio as often as possible and read your commentary and letters before he had to whisk back out again.

You might find this as compelling and interesting as I do: some of his most powerful episodes have been produced on the most diminished amount of carbohydrates and sleep.

Thank you for all your perspectives, thoughts, and kind words. The Maestro will return soon.

truly,
Ms. Information

heh, dunno how real this is supposed to be, as my skeptical antennae are up, thanks to the obviously rehearsed genre called \\\"Reality TV\\\". I hope it works out should this not be some little Blair Witch thingy. No insult meant to George, I\\\'m just a bit cynical.

@Mike Lee

The podcast has always been a bit of a mix of reality and theater. There\'s a fine line between life and art - don\'t worry about it - just enjoy it.

Well, it can\\\'t be Soccergirl, because what then about Ryan P? And don\\\'t forget, this was already going on before Balti.. uh I mean Dragoncon.

I guess there are two possibilities. Either it is \\\"something\\\" about a girl, and George has mastered the \\\"reality soap\\\" to an as yet unattained master-level.
Or he\\\'s fooling us with his superior drama-fiction. While there is something \\\"real\\\" about it, it could be quite mundane like having to call his mother to ask to punch an extra hole in his newly bought belt. Or something like that.

Either way, he has got me hooked. I\\\'m looking for clues in previous podcasts, and in podcasts and other shows linked in the past podcasts.
George, whatever you\\\'re thinking right now (chuckling or being miserable or ...), you are a master at what you do.

Greetings,

Ah, go for it. If you don\\\'t you\\\'ll just be kicking yourself for ages.

(of course, the guy who used the voicemail show for \\\"Wingin\\\' It\\\" to propose to his wife might not be the best example to go by, but picking her up at the airport with a dozen roses and an engagement ring didn\\\'t hurt much, neither.)

Good luck!

And another wise man once said something like, \"Search your feelings, you know it to be true.\" Admittedly he\'d just hacked off his own son\'s hand and was threatening the poor fellow with a glowing sword, but I think the sentiment is appropriate in this situation.
Just to change the subject, George, do you know where I can get a Cursed Wurst? Sounds spicy.

I\\\'m definitely late to the party, here, Geo. Totally behind you, man. Good luck. Mortimer
was spot on, I think I\\\'m going to start a Mortimer
cult. We can call ourselves Morties and wear
WWMD bracelets!

Uh, that stands for \\\"WHAT Weapons of Mass Destruction?!?!?!?!?!?\\\"

George,

Hope all goes well with her. I find myself in a similiar situation and found Mortimer to be helpful for me as well.

Also, to add onto the conversation with the pharmacist. As far as I know, CarrieP is correct in that HIPPAA will let the pharmacist tell her friend \\\"I totally sold George Hrab a perscription today\\\". As she\\\'s identified you, she can\\\'t tell that friend what it is she sold you. But, on the flip side, she could have also said \\\"I totally sold a customer X Prescription\\\". But again, because she identified the Prescription she sold, she can not identify to whom she sold it. So basically by law she can not say \\\"I sold George Hrab X Prescription.\\\" She can only give one piece of information, but not both.

Again, best of luck with asking her. May yours go better than mine!

[feedtroll]Wow. D\\\'ya suppose Mr. Ellipses could be Larry Craig trying out a new form of tapping? There\\\'s a long and rather sad tradition of closet-cases hurling butchybitchy abuse as the first step in flirting, after all.[/feedtroll]

Hey George, I feel like I\\\'m a day late on all of this, but I also feel the need to comment because I\\\'ve just been lurking for too long.

So I\\\'ll say this:

A wise man once told me \\\"the only advice I can give on a large scale is GO FOR IT\\\"

I don\\\'t think it really matters what it is...

Great show George, and brilliant ending.

I first heard about you through Skepticality a couple of years ago, but only found your podcast by accident last month, and I\'d just like to say that it\'s been an absolute pleasure to have on my iPod.

Oh yeah, and like everyone else is saying, good luck with that thing.

You are so shocking and edgy and tough in your anonymity.

Dear Ellipsis Person-

Allow me to clear up a few things.

1- What you mean to write is \\\"too old\\\" since \\\"too\\\" is an adverb and specifically a submodifier, not a preposition or an infinitive marker.

2- The Maestro is younger than 40 by some years.

3- He dresses immaculately and stylishly and is always well-groomed. He has exquisite taste. He is an excellent cook and an extraordinarily good shopper. He\\\'s helped me re-decorate my house. Perhaps this is what you mean by fag.

Any more questions?

Regards,
Ms. Information

Dear Ms. Information,

1. Let me assure you that \\\"to old\\\" was not a typo, but my inability to grasp some basic grammar concepts.

2. Really?! NO!

3. That\\\'s exactly what I mean by fag. That and he likes it in the butt.

Gentlmen, gentlemen,

I\\\'m fair sure that Soccergirl is not the girl in question here. It\\\'s pretty clear to me that they are just friends.

To quote the Jedi Master, \\\"There is another.\\\"

Sorry about that. Too much Disney in my youth.

Hope things work out, and that you never reap the whirlwind for using that Future Calling Hack. You break the EULA like that, the Time Violations Bureau gets really vicious. Last guy they caught got sentenced to being tossed back half a century in time, and tasked with being his younger self\\\'s old confidant...

Omigosh, Mortimer could be you, Geo!

I hope this is bigger than asking some girl out. Aren\\\'t you like 40? And isn\\\'t 40 a little to old to be acting out a John Hughes movie?

I hope she said no.

Fag.

He may be a curmudgeonly old bastard, but maybe Mortimer really is the wisest of sages. You should take his advice (for a change), you\'ll regret it if you don\'t.

and if it doesn\\\'t turn out well, then take comfort that you are a good looking guy living near the most unattractive city in the country (philly). I\\\"m sure there is someone out there willing to \\\'raise your spirits\\\' so to speak ;)
