Possible Evidence I May Need to Up My Dosage

I just re-read this email I sent to a friend in response to her confirming plans for a weekend away over Columbus Day 2009. I'm not sure if the caffiene or the pharmaceuticals are to blame.

And its a time of year when I shouldn't have any trouble taking vacation
days, so even though it isn't a real holiday I can still take off. (I mean, a
real holiday where we get off. Though really, its not a real holiday. Because
who gives a damn about Christopher Columbus and his discovery of someplace
other than here that he found by accident when he was looking for something else
and thought he was there anyway for a minute because his navigational equipment
sucked but then people didn't look Indian at least not the way he expected
but he figured, hell, there's good crap I can steal here anyway. Except maybe
the Italians. They care. Not sure why. I guess they didn't get a cool saint to
have a drunken holiday over like we did. I mean, they have the saints. But none
of them inspire binge drinking and public urination. Thirteen year old martyred
virgins are kind of a parade-downer.)

Thoughts?

I agree. You need to up your dosage.

There ya' go.

The head crazy person has spoken.

Oh that should be Head Crazy Person.

Hmmm I'd say you need to decrease your caffiene! LOL

Note to Himself:

Yes, I know the spacing is jacked up.
Yes, I know there are a bunch of random lines at the bottom.
Yes, I know "this never happens on Wordpress".
Comment about something else.

I think it makes it look like a poem. A wacky, wacky poem.

I'm a little scared to be realizing that your entire family seems to be both:

1.) blogging and
2.) incredibly funny

It seems it all shouldn't be so consolidated when there are those of us out there without witty family members with blogs...

Hm. Maybe I could get Sally Struthers to do a telethon for the cause... what do you think? :)

JM-- Who elected you Head Crazy Person? I think we need to have a runoff.

Tricia--Noooo! Though I think I will ease up on the free-trade co-op stuff and stick to my cheap and dirty 8 O' Clock.

Jen--It is a bit like a reality show (sans the sluts and cameras) sometimes.

When I lived in Chicago we used to celebrate Casmir Pulaski day. Don't know who he was or what he did. I just took the day off from school and tried not to complain.

Is it bad if I ask you to up your medication even more? It'll be in the name of science, or laughter, or something like that.

p.s. Himself is only looking out for you. Come over to the WordPress dark side, my dear.
