The Last Hurrah!

I’ve always been a bit of a nervous Nellie. I don’t quite know why. You’d think with all the hard knocks I’ve gotten through life that I would’ve toughened up to some extent. But no. I’ve developed some nervous habits instead. You know… like a sane person.

That’s what Peter and I discuss in this episode of the Crumbcast.

Speaking of which, this is the last Crumbcast we ever recorded together. It was done and dusted many moons ago, and he’s since moved on to greener pastures. I’m still bereft that he and his partner have gone, but they gave me a little skull satchel to remember them by… and so I do. I love that little satchel. It’s very black and skully and awesome. Muggers will have to pry it out of my cold, dead hands!

Anyhoo, I digress. Next episode of the Crumbcast will be back to just me again. Ugh. You unlucky things.



  1. I loved listening to this podcast about nervous habits. I will add one of my own to the list. When I was around 11 or 12 I started pulling my hair out so I had a little bald spot. I just loved the feel of my hair especially the new hair that grew in to replace the last one I had pulled out. It was rough and bumpy and not like the rest of my hair. The feel of it was so satisfying and then, oops out it had to come.
    I noticed that my grandmother also played with her hair, but she never pulled it out as far as I knew, but she certainly would mess up her hair after I had spent a long time brushing and then giving her a doo. She couldn’t resist undoing my beautifying attempts. Also, now my daughter plays with her hair but she doesn’t resort to hair pulling thank goodness.
    Love your pod cast Tony. Thank you.

    1. It’s so interesting the habits we take comfort in, isn’t it, Summerhill? It makes me wonder how they get started. Your grandmother sounds like she was quite the character! As for my podcast, I am so very happy that you are listening to it! Makes me grin from ear to ear! ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. I constantly get call out for my eccentric behavior but I don’t think it’s a nervous habit it’s more like who I am and what I am..66yrs Sept 5th my birthday..something I thought I never was a joke growing up would I see 25..again behavior always a trump in my pokers hand..i don’t think if I was so stubborn that I couldn’t see..could you blame Picasso for his behavior..could you blame Dali for his erratic behavior..they wouldn’t of been able to create..if they couldn’t act out..Hunter Thompson..he wanted his ashes put into fire works..i’m Popeye I’m who I am and that’s all that I the final I’m just “koons”

  3. Your posts remind me of the thoughts and the frame of mind I was in growing up. Itโ€™s a dark place to be in and some never get out but it is possible to grow and change. I hope you manage to one achieve happiness. (While using your experiences to help others so they donโ€™t have to suffer for so long).

          1. They’re calm, they can’t bark, they don’t smell nor need regular bathes or haircuts, they love hunting, they’re mostly soft and reserved, and they’re very independent (but able to be very loving).
            The only point where they diverge is the weather. When it’s cold huskies want to go outside while cats prefer to stay inside. Most of them, at least.

  4. This is hilarious. โ€œDo cats have nervous habits?โ€ โ€œYes.โ€ โ€œThey do?โ€ โ€œNo.โ€ โ€œOh.โ€ โ€œI donโ€™t know.โ€
    And that whole โ€œnimbus light from the nether regionโ€ business. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I listened to this while keeping to myself at lunch (one of those days I need a recharge by not being with a human being) and was smiling throughout. Love it, Tony!
