Wednesday night was one of the best nights ever. I mean it. Caroll Spinney and Oscar the Grouch spoke at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and I got to hang out with them! We got to hang out with his lovely wife Debi, too. They are such nice people. Caroll reminds me a lot of Jim Henson; I've said it for years.
Caroll has been a huge inspiration to me for years and I am glad I got to reinforce it to him in person. I don't think he truly understands the impact he has had, and still has, on kids big and small all over the world.
My gem of a husband, Josh, taped the event and I will be posting it once it's converted to digital format and ready for the Web.
