My Adventure with Green Day Included in the inlay of the Kerplunk CD/LP, 'My Adventure with Green Day' is a humorous story of what a young girl would do to spend a week with Green Day. The story was written for the punk zine "Tales of...Blarg!". The name Laurie L is a homage to the man who signed Green Day to their first record contract on Lookout! Records, Lawrence Livermore.
