Exclusive Interview with Crenwinkle!

How was it growing up with Crosley as a brother?

Brother Crosley and I were always different.  I’m not referring to our colors.  His redness happened later as a side effect of the Black Bottom pills. Our personalities are what really differentiate us.  Crosley is zany and free-wheeling and I’m not, and I’m a dignified genius and Crosley definitely is not.  But we did manage to value each other’s strengths and to work together.  (Wuk!)  Night Buddies Amalgamated would never have come into being without this.  On the other hand, I do think Crosley can be a bit jealous that I’m the brains of the operation.

What whatchamacallit are you most proud of inventing?

I think the time-spreader dingus is one of the most useful whatchamacallits I’ve made (it’s the one that slows down time so that John doesn’t lose any sleep for being out so long on Programs). It’s a fact that whenever you manipulate time, you never know (Hik!) how things are going to go, so I’m pleased that the device has worked well so far.

Do you ever worry about the Night Buddies Headquarters being broken into?

Constantly.  It’s a major concern.  Just think what would happen if the wrong crowd got into my whatchamacallits!  This is why I’m always moving Headquarters: to make it more difficult to find.  It’s at the zoo now, but just two days ago, it was in the back of Nardiello’s Pizza Palace.  The I-D Gimcracks add another layer of security.

John, Crosley, and the amazing get-anything-free card.

Who taught you how to juggle so well?

It’s an innate talent.  I do it at the zoo so no one will suspect who I really am.

Last, but not least, what do you love most about your job with the Night Buddies?

I love that it’s fast-paced, and that you never know what each Program is going to be dealing with. Who could have guessed (Ook!) that a gang of Crosley impersonators would figure in the last Program?  It keeps me on my toes, and I get to use my imagination making whatchamacallits.  It’s a dream job, we’re working for the greater good, and best of all, I get to do it with Brother Crosley and (Hup!) our other splendid operatives.

Crosley’s brother Crenwinkle is not only a genius who runs the Night Buddies Headquarters, he’s also a top-notch juggler! Crenwinkle draws huge crowds for his juggling performances, and he can juggle just about anything he wants, including seven fat, triple-decker sandwiches! If you’re looking to pick up a new hobby, here are some of our best tips to get you up to Crenwinkle’s speed.

Start out slowly. Try practicing your movements with one object (probably a ball) first, and figure out the easiest way for you to catch it. Include more objects as you get comfortable with them.

Never chase the object. The point isn’t to reach up and grab the object, but to let it fall into your hand.

Keep your eyes in the air. If you focus on the highest point you want your object to reach, you’ll find that the object will fall into your hands without needing to look.

Focus. Juggling is as much as a mental activity as a physical one, and you need to always be focused and aware of what you are doing so that you don’t drop your objects on the floor!

Practice! The only way you will improve your juggling skills is if you work at it every day. Aim for around twenty minutes a session so that you can fully concentrate instead of sporadically practicing for five minutes here and there.

Don’t worry if you aren’t able to juggle like Crenwinkle on your first few tries; you’re learning and improving with each new attempt. And if you keep these tips in mind, soon you’ll be able to juggle like a crocodile!
