I received an interesting email from one of my mom’s cousins tonight…
Apparently, I have to pay $60/year to be in the family. Funny, this is the first I’ve heard of these “dues”. I don’t plan on paying. I wonder if I’ll get kicked out of the family? If nothing else, I have a new reason to not show up at the family reunion. “Oh, sorry… I forgot to pay my dues, so now I can’t go. Maybe I’ll see you in 2014??” This is also a tremendous reason to not get married or have kids… “But if we get married, then you’ll have to pay $60/year to be a part of our family!”
I received an interesting phone call last night. Two friends that don’t call nearly as often as I would like, rang me up to ask why I didn’t tell them about my girlfriend. Naturally, I was like… What? They read off a couple of lines, named a couple of names and web sites and things kind of started to fall into place. It was not exactly easy to set them straight. It should have been an amazingly LOLlerrific misunderstanding, but instead I found it rather annoying. There’s actually a lot of such chatter going around, and that’s what I find annoying. And, sadly, I can’t say I didn’t have my hand in its creation… I thought I was helping create some lulz, but it has kind of turned around and kicked my ass. Oh well. It’s not a big deal, and I’ll take that over almost anything else, any day! Things could be a lot worse.
Speaking of lulz, I think I have some here. They might seem fairly vague, and the lulz might be kind of hard to find without any sort of explanation, so feel free to ask about them if you wish.
Lastly, Carl is going to be on some bootleg underground local radio station (97.7) today (Thursday) at 6PM, offering some relationship advice or something like that. You know, Dr Phil/Dr. Drew type stuff. He said it’s meant to be funny and not serious, so you should check it out!
