<p> </p>
<p>Did you know?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>He started his career in entertainment, as the drummer in a rock band.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>He has written and starred in three films, one of which he directed.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Ferguson's entire monologue is done "off the cuff".  He has a few ideas of what to talk about, but nothing written down.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>He has written and published a novel, and is working on a sequel and mentioned that it's a "trilogy".</p>
<p> </p>
<p>He is an immigrant from Scotland, and has become a US citizen.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>He holds a pilot's license.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>He has been married three times, divorced twice.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>He is a recovering alcoholic, and been sober since 1992.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I used to think he was just an idiot, but now....I'm not sure... I mean, he's still an idiot but there's some genius behind there.  He's kind of like that weird, funny, smart kid at school who you really didn't like, but then if you get to know him you kind of understand why.</p>

This is me, I think, though the funny and smart parts are debatable.<br>

<p>I knew all of that, own his book, follow his Twitter feed, and can tell you a few more things.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>He has a tattoo on his arm "Join or Die", with the segmented snake symbolizing the 13 original colonies, which he got after he became a citizen.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>He hosts the Boston Pops 4th of July celebration and according to my friend who is a Pops cellist, he is very down to earth and personable.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Also, I LEEEEEERVE Ferg, and have to admit, the one of the few things I loved about being unemployed was I could stay up weeknights to watch his show.</p>

<p>There's not much I like or admire about American jingoism, and I was afraid I'd gag when I heard the news, but I really enjoyed listening to him after he became a US citizen.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>The tattoo thing is a tad over-the-top though. :D</p>
