I had to go to three travel sites, enter in flight information repeatedly, and call up two credit card companies, all so I could buy my sister’s plane ticket so she can come up and annoy my father. My mother is leaving for Japan, and I can’t do it all on my own. OK, so one of the credit card company calls was to cancel an EBay MasterCard I got so my sister would have more points towards her Free iPod. According to Wired, you can actually get a free iPod if you bully five your friends in to joining and signing up for things. Of course, I’m not above mentioning my own Free iPod referral link.
Woo, there were some attractive women at the gym today. I like making up background stories about them and imagining what their names are. Reality is seldom as interesting, especially since most women seem to already be in relationships, and they could have something terribly wrong about them, like being on parole for swindling elderly people out of their money, or being Republican, or not being intelligent, or being religious, or voting for Nader. You know, the big things that could seriously kill a relationship. It’s more interesting to think they’re all well-read, interested in me, and not obsessed with something like knitting. (Heh.) More realistically, that they’re not put off by a guy with a dozen computers and a ham radio hobby.
Oh, well. My friend Il told me that there are serious Republicans who are twisting John Edwards’ words into saying, “I, John Edwards, believe John Kerry is a faith healer.” He’s seen web sites from those very Republicans and it has him in a tizzy. I told him to calm down. It’s just the intarweb. Heck, I have a web site that purports that I am a sane person.
Anyway, I’m off to imagine that one of the women at the gym is named Alice.
