it's the beginning of the end...

I tell you what. This is bad news. For weeks, I've been bitching about not having internet in my house. For every visit to the world wide web, I've lugged my ass to the corner coffee shop that thankfully doesn't charge for using their wireless, and have spent my time frantically doing every internet related thing I can think of before the end of my latte. All the while trying not to stare at the unremarkable yet strangely alluring barista (and yes, folks, he does indeed look like a serial killer).

Those days have changed. Today the Comcast guy made his fourth and hopefully final visit to Casa Bonita in order to fix whatever it was that was fucked up with their product. This means I now have complete access to the internet, from virtually any place in my house, as long as I've got my laptop comfortably atop my lap. Now I will once again be "makin' the rounds, makin' the rounds" of cementhorizon, checking my e-mail to see if anyone, possibly Jon Vonnegut*, has decided to look me up and find out if I'd like to have wild crazy sex sometime**, and probably looking at friendster since I now *have* to join b/c apparently Jason R. has a great testimonial for me, or something. Anyway, the point here is that I have no time for any of this. It's good-bye grad school now. I'll never leave the house. Oh well. It was fun while it lasted.***

*name changed to prevent embarassing web searches that could bring up this page)

**mmmm, serial killers

*** you know, I don't know who I'm kidding. I mean, last night, my housemates and I created an elaborate "MISSING" poster for the pancake Kyle and I have been passing back and forth like a divorce-torn child. I'm realizing this is a story that might need some elaboration for anyone to know what I'm talking about. Suffice it to say, I've been spending plenty of time fucking around lately. I'm just going to have to prioritize my fucking around between house pranks and the internet. And the coffee shop guy.

Yeah! Welcome to the land of wireless living! We've missed you. In addition to getting on friendster, you also need to get your ass on AIM asap. I'm serious Missy!

Ok - I've said my peace. Now to go have free lunch with my mother, and Jack, and my other cousin - who are all in town. Crazy, eh?

doh! jolie was supposed to keep that secret! i mean, hopefully she didn't reveal the testimonial, and i never explicitly said, "but don't tell erica that i even have a great friendster testimonial," but still... it's okay, though, if it finally gets you to join :)

she would not tell me what it was about, not at all. so i think she did the right thing, since the testimonial would never see the light of day had i not known it was around. which reminds me, do you know i tried to get on friendster yesterday afternoon and it was down for repairs or some bullshit! i mean, does the internet not revolve around me, i ask you!

friendster's servers revolve around suckiness. that server is always having troubles... sometimes i send a message and it takes like 2 days to show up. its lame.

im sooooooooo excited for this testimonial though. cept now it's getting all built-up and will prob be a let down :(

Don't be mad Jas, I knew what I was doing. You have to tempt Erica if you want to get anywhere with her...

I'm just here to help, darlin'.

will, we watched 'showgirls' the other night. i tell you, it just gets better and better every time i watch it. thanks, baby, that's the best present anyone's ever given me.

It's far better than my present, which still hasn't been sent... and let's be honest, you probably won't see it (them) until I come visit over winter break.

Which brings me to a fantastic idea! Let's go get fours together and Gotsi/6601 when I come visit! It'll be like old times! We can start a new tradition! Although, maybe not, tradition starting would involve far more stretching...hmmm.
