Hteitriht yluJ ,yadnoM s'tI. Nhoj ,gninrom doog. Good morning John, it's July thirtieth.

[laughter] That was fun. You guys should try that sometime. JOOLIA. I don't know why I couldn't get July right. It always came out sounding like Julia. I mean, thirtieth came out sounding almost perfect, but July I couldn't do. I meant July. July thirtieth. Good morning, John; it's Monday, July 30th. And do you know what that means?!

It means I have to pay rent. That probably wasn't as exciting as you thought it was going to be, was it? But wait! It actually is exciting! It's exciting because, for those of you who don't know, John and I have recently been discussing the fact that my house, the one that I live in, is for sale, and upon someone buying it, they could conceivably kick me out because I have a month-to-month lease. I really didn't want to get kicked out of my house. And the new owner says that she is happy to keep us as tenants.

[Hank does his happy dance]

So paying rent, for once, is a really exciting and happy thing, because it means, it means that I...have a place to sleep at night. That is the, pretty much the only really exciting part of paying rent.

But there's another reason that it's exciting that it's Monday. Because I'm doing a video on a Monday, which means that my next video is on a Wednesday, which means that it's going to be a song! That seems like it came up really quick! Ehhh. I've been concentrating a lot on Accio Deathly Hallows. Y'know, checkin' out the video responses, reading the comments, trying to respond to all the messages. Sorry if I haven't responded to you yet. I will. I promise. But I have to come up with another song for two days from now.

Check out this awesome Nerdfighting crest that Meezou Myzou Mitzou created! Nerdfighters!

John, I don't really know how the songwriting process works for me, but, luckily, I had too many Cokes last night, and while I was laying in bed at three o'clock in the morning, some great lyrics started to occur to me. And because I was afraid of going to sleep and forgetting the lyrics, I got up, and I walked into the living room, and I grabbed a pen, and I grabbed this little pad of paper that I remembered was hiding underneath the phone. So I grabbed it, and I looked at it, and there, on the little pad of paper, were song lyrics! Song lyrics in my handwriting on the same pad of paper that I don't know how long has been hiding under that phone. Apparently, I had remembered that same pad of paper while trying not to forget song lyrics, and I had written them down, and then instead of, you know, losing the lyrics forever, I just forgot that I had written them down. And I don't remember ever having thought of these song lyrics, nor do I remember ever writing them down, but here they are, and I don't know what the tune is. It says:
"You look so good
I want to sprinkle you on my food
If I could I would eat you
Like a five year old eats glue."

...Okay? Uh, apparently I thought that that was really, like, worth getting out of bed and writing down and then promptly forgetting. Maybe those lyrics will find their way into a song someday, but that's probably not the one I'm gonna do on Wednesday. And to people who have been giving me ideas for what to write songs about, that is actually kind of helpful. That actually wasn't my idea to write a song about Harry Potter last time. That was somebody in the comments or in the forum. I don't remember. But thank you so much to whoever it was that suggested that first.

Anyway, thanks to Coca Cola Classic for helping me write songs, and keeping me up until five o'clock in the freaking morning. Urghh.

Nonetheless, I think I will finally have a song ready for Wednesday. Hooray. And John, I'm looking forward to seeing you tomorrow.
