I was delivering and picking up to/from a client tonight. He arrives at the door with a joint"... well... need I say more. I smoked some weed last summer and it floored me. This was hash. Not bad. Very nice. Much like the stuff I remember. (Stay away from that "new" weed... I mean--yikes.)

Wish you could pick me up so we could go somewhere.

women are like apples..

[Cute Shan]

Women are like apples on trees...the best ones are at the top.

Most men don't want to reach for the good ones because they are too lazy. Instead, they just get the rotten apples from the ground that aren't as good, but easy. So the apples at the top think something is wrong with them, when in reality, they're amazing. They just have to wait for the right man to come along - the one who's brave enough to climb all the way to the top of the tree.

Subject: Rain this weekend

I misspelled lasagna in my message. I wasn't sure on the spelling so I looked it up in the Oxford Concise...and there it was.../lasagne/. It turns out that /lasagne /is plural for /lasagna. /And I thought I was being so smart...for a minute there I thought that there was an English and American version of the spelling. Not quite.

I've attached an mp3 for the rainy weekend ahead. [Pennies From Heaven by Bing Crosby] Steve Martin starred in a movie with the same title (a disturbing bit of a movie it was, too). The best part of the movie was when someone (not Steve) did a song and dance of the title track. Whoever it was did a nice job. I liked it.

Subject: So how about lunch then?

I got caught in the rain today and ducked into the [XXX] restaurant--home of the "Elvis Sighting Society"--for lunch. I had the baked lasagne (it was on special). It came with soup (I had the lentil), and rice pudding or jello. The waitress asked if I would like raisins and whipped cream on my pudding--who could resist. Much to my delight, the rice pudding arrived with a cinnamon sprinkle on the whipped cream--definitely five stars. I'm still in love with you.

Oh you're not. Some other loser (don't you just love Nelson Muntz) must have sent you something and you rushed, hoping, of course, that it was me who sent you another letter, to check your mail. (Did I mention that I was a low self-esteem kind of way.)

No responses to that letter I sent to [XXX] et al. Except from one of the so-called activists...that was a complete waste of time...for some strange reason, I get the impression that she, in a previous life, must have been of those who led the Light Brigade into the Valley of Death.

So c'mon...let's go out for dinner. We can both have a great time laughing at me and my fight with [XXX]. But all things considered...I think I'm doing the right ignore it would be the wrong thing to do...that I know for sure. Rocks and hard places.

Subject: I did some research on that Kitty Kallen tune...

Turns out (Little Things Mean A Lot) was her biggest hit. Not only turns out it was one of the biggest hits of the post-war was number one for nine weeks and on the charts for seven months. So...I guess that means that I have good taste as well...I mean...of all songs that I had to choose from...I chose that one. Shall I take a bow. I like to think that I have good taste when it comes to women as a matter of fact...I know I're the living proof.

Did you get that Kitty Kallen tune (Little Things Mean A Lot)? I hope you have high speed because I don't...and it took forever to upload that thing to my mail you are on dial-up...all I have to say is...sorry about that. I thought it was a kind of nice, albeit a little cornball, tune.

So...the next time you hear that song...which will probably be never...try and think of me and how much I loved you, and, when my last breath escapes me on the battlefield, how it will whisper your name. Forgive my many faults and the many pains I have caused you, how thoughtless and foolish I have sometimes been. But oh Stacey, if the dead can come back to this earth and flit unseen amongst those they love, I shall always be with you in the brightest day and the darkest night...always...always. HEY WAIT A MINUTE...THAT'S THE SULLIVAN BALLOU LETTER. Sorry about a little carried away.

so i am active on various social networks. i'm used to meeting people through the web. no big deal. first time i did it was in 1989, true story, did a road trip from nova scotia to vermont with my friend trish for a music festival and hooked up with a bunch of people we had been telnetting with.

years later in 1997 on the same day i met him irl (in real life), i fell in love with a man who i had known for a year and a half through the internet. i spent 9 days with him traveling from vancouver to seattle to san francisco and los angeles, then 2 weeks later flew to london and moved in. we spent 4 years together.

it doesn't seem weird to me.

so that being said, i have an ongoing influx of messages from various people i meet out there in virtual-land. this particular series "YOUR IMAGINARY FRIEND" is highlighting messages from someone i spoke to once or twice a couple of months ago through a social networking site. i believe i have become his imaginary friend. he sends me a note pretty much every day but I NEVER WRITE HIM BACK. i do enjoy reading his notes tho. he's an intelligent and witty man.

i have backdated the posts and decided not to publish every one that i received. unfortunately i do not have them all from the very beginning. just from march 16th onwards.

(obviously i don't want to reveal his name or embarass him in any way, just wanted to share the fantasy with you all...)

Subject: Hey!!! You're not reading my mail. Why not? Was it something I said?

This is will fit right into "the plot".

I'm not crazy Stace (I can call you "Stace"...right?), I just get a little carried away sometimes...just for the fun of it. Too much creativity. One of my Profs, when I showed her my research design (it was part of the course requirement), commented on my level of creativity. And, by the way, my research design was the one that was chosen to be run. When the Prof and TA saw it they were rather impressed. They didn't say so...but you could see it in their faces...and hear it in their voices. I miss the good old days at the University of [XXX] it's just real life money making drudge.

(Why do I get the feeling that I am talking to myself.)

Subject: C'mon Stacey...don't be so talkative

No calls from the mental health cops yet. Maybe the newspaper tipped them off to the fact that I recorded the conversation I had with the [XXX] where they tried to explain to me that what the falsified records were about "made a difference". When the [XXX] I the other end of the line told me that nothing criminal was going on I replied with "Not yet". He then muttered something under his breath. I couldn't quite make it out, but I think he said "Oh you son of a bitch".

After the [XXX] meeting I told my lawyer that I had recorded the conversation. She just gave me this blank stare...I thought I was going to have to wave my hand in front of her face and say "Are you okay?"

social are we doing?

so we did friendster. then we did tribe. then it was myspace. then we checked out orkut. well keram invited me into the latest social networking site yesterday. it's the brainchild of e. jean, the advice columnist for elle magazine. takes it a step further, where you can actually buy and trade your friends (who are 'playing cards'). seriously, you can buy somebody for like $5 to $10 bucks. they'll let you put it on your credit card.

so i signed up yesterday and got a message this morning from diana, one of their columnists:
"check out the homepage...i featured you in my column tonight!"

this is what she had to say about me:
"Stacey: A mix between Liv Tyler and Angelina Jolie. Boys (and girls!) I'm not gunna're gunna wanna jump on this!"

wow, erm...what is this place? i'm out, ciao.

One of them has my phone number and I have not heard from her. (It's a good thing I'm not out to impress anyone.) If you didn't read that hotmail stuff you don't know what i am talking about. Maybe that is just as well.

So...anyway...i was dropping off some stuff that I have been doing for someone and he mentioned how old his girlfriend is. He is 49..she is 23. I could not believe it. I thought she must have been at least in her late twenties. But the funny thing is that...if you saw them would say that they make a nice couple.

Remember that screenplay I was talking is evolving nicely. And guess're in it. But the only part you play is the part you are playing now. I sounds "way" cool. Maybe, if it ever makes it too screen, we (me and Scorcese) can use your actual pic. How much would you charge us to use your image?

I guess you've figured out that I'm a bit of a Dylan fan. Rolling Stone ranked him number 2 behind The Beatles. I can listen to all sorts of music...but it's a funny thing how I I always end up feeling "rescued" whenever I put a Dylan disc back in (or on) the player. It will be a sad day when he goes. I hope I never see it.
