Thanks Robin

I don’t know what I can say that hasn’t already been said a million times over.

When I was little, I had Mork suspenders from Mork & Mindy.

In junior high, my grandmother bought me a cassette of Live at the Met that I listened to over and over and over and over.

I can still, to this day, quote quotes from Good Morning Vietnam.  “Hot enough in my shorts I can cook in them.  A little ‘crotch pot’ cookin’.”

In high school, I cried at the end of Hook.  When the little girl wakes up and sees her parents.  If it was on right now, I’d cry.

When I first started working at Disneyland in 1993, merchandise with The Genie from Aladdin on it was the majority of what  I used my cast member discount on.

After college, into my stand up years, I always totally respected the stories I’d hear of Robin just popping in to small hole in the wall places (The Mock Cafe in San Francisco) and watching comedy and doing a set.  So amazing that a star would do that.

Thank you Robin.  

Thank you for a lifetime of laughs.
