August 28, 1998

So, anyway, I haven’t written anything in a little while.  And my last two Thoughts have both been about politics one way or another so this time I’ll just… vent.  I can’t think of anything really to write, so I’ll just post a few letters I’ve written lately.  I think I’m becoming a much better letter writer… email, I mean.  I never write real letters.

Letter to Deb last week when the Clinton testimony was a hot topic:

When the dust settles and the cards have fallen, there will be big time resignations… the White House Press Secretary, Mike McCurry, has already tendered his resignation (or is making preparations to do so). It’s an old-fashioned circling of the wagons right now, but when the shit starts to fall from the ceiling, there will be high profile resignations…

We can only hope Slick Willie is one of them.

Letter to Steve Case:

Two YEARS ago you promised no more busy signals, why, then, am I still getting busy signals from six o’clock in the evening till eleven o’clock at night? And, why are there two access numbers in Temple, TX when only one in Killeen, TX? There are 25,000 less people in Temple. There is absolutely no reason for me to still be struggling with busy signals, especially after a rate hike. I suggest an additional access number in the Killeen, TX area immediately, or legal action may, once again, be necessary.

And, last, but not least, here’s a conversation I had in IMs with Ash earlier today:

GOMEMY: This guy was hitting on her really hard in class today… we were playing games that we had made about the U.S. Constitution, and he played every game with her and was making her laugh and touching her and all…

GOMEMY: I was jealous and brooding, making asshole comments in my head about him, and sat at my group’s game (they were in our group) and showed the other people how to play it…

GOMEMY: Anyway…

GOMEMY: At the end of class…

GOMEMY: Me, him, her, and another guy were all standing around and he was making comments about getting into her pants…

GOMEMY: Of course, most of this wasn’t caught by her… as she’s a foreign exchange student…

GOMEMY: And I made smartass comments back at him… Something like… Him, “Damn, how’d you get into those pants… they’re so tight.” Me, “Yeah, and that means there’s not enough room for you.”

GOMEMY: You had to be there, I guess.

GOMEMY: Anyway, I think she started getting pissed, because she figured out what he was talking about a few times…

GOMEMY: And he put his arm around her…

GOMEMY: She pushed him off of her…

GOMEMY: Just like in the movies…

CynLennin: Wow.

GOMEMY: Blah, blah, blah… the bell rings and we’re walking outside… and she kind of slows down, I catch up to her… I don’t know if she slowed down so I could or what…

CynLennin: no…seriously…I wondered if anyone else had those”in the movies” moments.

GOMEMY: And I say, “Hey… I want to apologize for what happened in there.”

CynLennin: I’m not being a smartass.  And….

GOMEMY: And… she kind of says something… I’m not sure what… and we’re walking a little more and I say, “Some guys are just… like that.”

CynLennin: and….

GOMEMY: The whole time she keeps up beside me… and she says, “I hate it.”

CynLennin: aww….I feel bad for her….

GOMEMY: And, since I’m pretty sure she wouldn’t go out to lunch with me again (there is no point to this story), I say, “Join the club,” and head around behind the building to the parking lot.

GOMEMY: But, anyway…

CynLennin: Is that all? or are you now her fantastic, kind boyfriend?

GOMEMY: It seemed more significant in my head… how he was all over her the whole time, and she ended up leaving with me…

GOMEMY: That’s all.

CynLennin: I see the signifigance now.

GOMEMY: Maybe there isn’t any…

GOMEMY: We’ve had a few movie moments…

CynLennin: there is some.

GOMEMY: He’s a little white Homie G anyway.

GOMEMY: He’s in this “gang” called Players, Inc… which is three white guys from Germany…

CynLennin: Well, good for you, then.

CynLennin: “There is no sin but stupidity”

GOMEMY: And… she’s right there and he’s talking about how all ass is the same and all this shit about how many girls he’s had… and he’s like, “I bet I’ve had more than you.” And I say, “Yeah, I bet you have, because I’m still a virgin.”

CynLennin: Fuck him then. He personifies what’s wrong with the world.

GOMEMY: I mean… it really pissed me off, though. It seemed like she was really into him…

GOMEMY: Just watching them together… I was like… FUCK

CynLennin: but she wasn’t, though. So you can feel good about that.

GOMEMY: Yeah….

GOMEMY: Which means another long, hard weekend till Monday.

CynLennin: You and I might not have found love, but we’ve found kindred spirits. “All of us are in the gutter- but some of us look to the stars”

GOMEMY: Yeah… LOL.

CynLennin: fellow-sufferers.
