Date: 04-11-2008 12:45

Just thought I'd let you know. One of my favorite web designers, the same guy who also developed the blogging software I use, is the guy who did the gsk website. Small world.

Date: 04-11-2008 12:46

Amazing. What's his name and for what company does he work?

Date: 04-12-2008 11:32

Did Daddy tell you about the article he read about the guy who lost his Mac Air and realized he must have thrown it out two days earlier with the Sunday paper? Funny.

Date: 04-16-2008 17:35

I have your absentee ballot. Call me when you have two minutes so we can vote together.

U left door open. Socks is missing. Come home!

Date: 04-26-2008 15:41

I'm in the southside.

Date: 04-26-2008 15:41

I don't care

Date: 04-26-2008 15:43


Date: 04-26-2008 18:56

Your re-entry into my house best begin with an a heartft apology, an announcement you've already stopped at at least two places in the southside to ask about jobs, and be followed by an immediate trip to the lawnmower, which means it better happen before dark.

Date: 04-26-2008 23:02

Front door locked. Go to back deck door.

Date: 04-26-2008 23:09

I thought I wasn't allowed back home. I mean, I did let socks out like an asshole. I was planning on going to live with my friends back at upj.

Date: 04-26-2008 23:11

Of course you can come home.

Date: 04-26-2008 23:14

An apology about Socks would have been nice, and you'll still have to look for a job all day, every day, but that was true with or without Socks.

Date: 04-26-2008 23:22

BTW, saw Thu episode of Daily Show with Colin Firth. Is that the link you sent me? Him talking about his penis? Clip had been removed from YouTube when I tried to access it.

Date: 04-30-2008 14:09

Job thing go okay?

Date: 04-30-2008 14:12

Yeah. But they pretty much just want me answering phones so I don't think I'll be taking it.

Date: 04-30-2008 14:12

U could take it for $ until something better opens up. What r $?

Date: 05-01-2008 13:06

Your dog took a shit in the house.

Date: 05-06-2008 20:29

What kind of projects will you be working on?

Date: 05-12-2008 14:05

Easy html and php.

Date: 05-12-2008 14:05

Yeah, but for what? RTC's own website? Their intranet?

Date: 05-12-2008 14:08

I haven't gotten any projects yet.

Date: 05-12-2008 14:08

Ah. I bet you will soon.

Date: 05-12-2008 19:44

I don't know Jean's cell. Please ask her if she told editors she was Maureen Lee or Jean Hilpert. I need answer asap. Thanks.

You need to bring my passport or my social security card when you come down.

Date: 05-13-2008 09:40

Okay. Should I mail it?

Am in restroom too

Date: 05-23-2008 18:52

I've been in gridlock for the last three and a half hours. My ipod died in the first 20 minutes. I just thought you'd like to know that "Born in the USA" has been the highlight of my drive.

Date: 05-23-2008 18:52

Poor baby.

Date: 05-23-2008 18:52

Hopefully it will clear up soon.

Date: 05-23-2008 18:55

Dancing in the dark!

Date: 05-23-2008 18:55

Is it a two-fer Tuesday?

Date: 05-23-2008 18:57

It was two different stations.

Date: 05-23-2008 18:56

U r lucky. U must be in Lucky Town.

Date: 05-23-2008 18:56


Date: 05-23-2008 19:00

I've gone 2 miles in the last twenty minutes. I don't think I've lost these blues yet.

Date: 05-26-2008 12:37

Today is Peter's birthday. Please call or text him, okay?

Date: 05-26-2008 18:55

Traffic bad?

Date: 05-26-2008 19:04

Not that bad, i mean I haven't gotten to maryland yet so yeah.

Date: 05-26-2008 19:41

So if I get the new iPhone would you be willing to cover the cost of the data plan for my birthday :)

Date: 05-26-2008 20:12

And it begins. I'm 74 miles away and it will take another 3 hours.

Date: 05-26-2008 21:32

Home safe :)

Date: 06-01-2008 00:17

I went to the 7-11 and they said they don't have the ability to recieve money and/or give any to me.

Date: 06-01-2008 16:39

Yay I'm slightly richer!

Date: 06-01-2008 16:44

Don't spend it all in one place -- and please call Buxx!

Did you get check?

Date: 06-10-2008 11:03

R u interested in a birthday dinner tonight or tomorrow?

Date: 06-10-2008 13:34

Your daughter brought some members of the opposite sex over to the house.

Date: 06-10-2008 13:33

I told her it was okay. How many boys, girls?

Date: 06-10-2008 13:35

Speaking of potential trouble, Stripey ran proudly into the family room last night with a dead, bloody baby bunny in his mouth.

Date: 06-10-2008 13:36

He was very sad when Lester took his prize away. He cried a few times.

Date: 06-10-2008 13:38

Ansel says stripy brought one in when he was babysitting

Date: 06-10-2008 14:32

Another bunny?!!

Date: 06-10-2008 14:33

It's like he's got an ATM somewhere that spits out rabbits.

Date: 06-10-2008 22:48

Forgot to remind you: you need to go to drivers license place tomorrow to renew. Form in corner cabinet of dining room.

Date: 06-11-2008 14:44

"...Causing it to oscillate like her favorite vibrator." What the fuck!?

Date: 06-11-2008 14:44

What on earth are you reading?

Date: 06-11-2008 14:44

: )

Date: 06-12-2008 02:11

Safe :)

Date: 06-13-2008 11:11

Can you schedule an appointment with Judy for the weekend of July 4th and then remind me? Thanks :)

Date: 06-13-2008 11:13

Yes. Are you okay? Mom needs a tiny bit of reassurance or she'll imagine something horrible. If it's horrible, I'd rather know. XXOO.

Date: 06-17-2008 18:44

Please don't get your mom in trouble. Please tell me you've sent Teri a quick email. Thank you!

Date: 06-27-2008 22:22

Date: 06-27-2008 22:23

No, it's a holiday, but maybe on Sat. You have Judy at 11 on Sat. I'll call Romberger on Monday.

Date: 06-27-2008 22:24


Date: 06-27-2008 22:24

WALL-E was great. You should see it.

Date: 06-27-2008 22:29

I planned on seeing it since I saw the first preview last year. Pixar is batting 1.0000 so far.

Date: 06-29-2008 20:39

I looked up the technical name for my job - front end web developer. They average $70K+. In california - upwards of 100K =O

Date: 06-29-2008 20:40

Always knew you'd go far, my son.

Date: 06-29-2008 21:16

Hey, can I get my JPEG tonight?

Date: 06-29-2008 21:25

Yes. Also is that deal still valid? You know where I get your old iPhone?

Date: 06-29-2008 21:26

Potentially negotiable. I thought you were buying your own.

Date: 06-29-2008 21:28

The data plan is expensive. Unless you're going to pay for it.

Date: 06-29-2008 21:28

Hmmmm. Did I mention I was going to be laid off?

Date: 06-29-2008 21:30


Date: 06-29-2008 21:29

Exactly what?

Date: 07-01-2008 14:21

Sunday for early dinner with Rebecca and Ansel. We'll still have shells on Saturday.

Date: 07-07-2008 02:28

Home safe

Date: 07-07-2008 09:44

So good seeing you, Sweet Pea.

Date: 07-07-2008 10:22

Date: 07-07-2008 10:22

Date: 07-26-2008 20:16

Do you miss us already?

Date: 07-27-2008 04:06

Did you guys leave yet? Cause I locked myself out of my car and wash wondering if dad had a spare set of my keys with him.

Date: 07-27-2008 09:02

Sorry. We left at 5. Triple A can help.

Date: 07-27-2008 20:01

What happened with car?

Date: 07-27-2008 20:07

I fixed it

Date: 07-27-2008 20:07

Smashed window?

Date: 07-27-2008 20:09

Yeah, it seemed like a good idea. I guess I'll use the Prius during the winter.

Date: 07-30-2008 09:31

Hey my boss wants to talk to you. Check your email.

Date: 07-30-2008 10:04

Nothing yet. I'll keep looking. We arrived in SF last night. Jean sleeping at our house.

Date: 07-30-2008 10:06

I sent it to 40 minutes ago. Send him an email:

Date: 07-30-2008 10:23

What have you told Paul about school, so I have the same story?

Date: 07-30-2008 10:25

I'm just leaving UPJ and will probably transfer to somewhere down here.

Date: 07-30-2008 10:26

Got it.

Date: 07-30-2008 11:01

Call me when you're free. I talked to Paul.

Date: 07-30-2008 11:25

Oh and if you could add like $20 to my buxx card that would be great.

Date: 07-30-2008 11:27

We'll try. We'll have to go to business center as wireless in hotel room not working. Will confirm when we do it.

Date: 07-30-2008 12:40

What's the name on ur Buxx card?

Date: 07-30-2008 12:44

The username is camperwyatt

Date: 07-30-2008 12:44

No, the name engraved on the actual card, please.

Date: 07-30-2008 12:46

Wyatt J Cready-Pyle

Date: 07-30-2008 12:50

$25 added

Date: 07-30-2008 12:53

Thank you :D

Date: 08-04-2008 11:53


Date: 08-04-2008 11:54

I got the retirement package.

Date: 08-04-2008 11:55

We're rich!

Date: 08-04-2008 11:56

I'm rich. Well, I guess you are, too, given your new job.

Date: 08-04-2008 20:38

Let me know when you're safe in DC.

Date: 08-05-2008 09:35

R u in DC?

Date: 08-05-2008 09:37

Yes, I just emailed you.

Date: 08-05-2008 09:37

Thx, love

Date: 08-12-2008 20:05

We put $125 on your card.

Date: 08-14-2008 17:05

Glad you got them. Are they cute? Send me a pic. Harvey's mouse stopped working so I can't reply to your IM.

Date: 08-15-2008 10:25

Can you talk to the financial planner today? 15 mins?

Date: 08-15-2008 10:26

Today? How?

Date: 08-15-2008 10:28

By phone. I forwarded the email yesterday where he suggested times. Let me know.

Date: 08-15-2008 11:24

When can you talk between now and 2:30?

Date: 08-15-2008 11:24

At noon

Date: 08-15-2008 11:26

Thx. Confirming with Jeff. Gave him your cell #. Get 401K info from HR if you can.

Date: 08-15-2008 11:27

I won't get that until next week.

Date: 08-15-2008 11:28

Okay. Well just use the time today with Jeff as a meet and greet and to ask questions.

Date: 08-15-2008 12:20

Is jeff going to call?

Date: 08-15-2008 12:21

I guess he didn't, eh? He didn't answer my email yet. Oh, well. You're free to go.

Date: 08-15-2008 14:03

Okay, Jeff apologizes. He just got my email. He asks if he can call you at 2:30. That okay?

Date: 08-15-2008 14:04

Yeah that's fine.

Date: 08-17-2008 21:34

How much do I have to make to afford a car?

Date: 08-20-2008 15:54

Did you find out from HR if your health coverage has begun?

Date: 08-21-2008 15:54

So will you be able to sponser me going to Chicago next week?

Date: 08-21-2008 15:55

You can't take vacation, can you?

Date: 08-21-2008 15:56

You only get two weeks.

Date: 08-21-2008 15:57

And I think your paperwork said you couldn't take away until 2009. Check with Paul, I guess.

Date: 08-21-2008 15:57

I told Paul I was going on august and he told me to push it back. I have now twice. I will be "working from home" next week.

Date: 08-21-2008 15:58

August 1st*

Date: 08-21-2008 15:58

Paul okay with that?

Date: 08-21-2008 15:59


Date: 08-21-2008 16:00

Cool! What does 'sponsor' mean?

Date: 08-21-2008 16:00

But I'm still broke, so will you sponser me?

Date: 08-21-2008 16:02

Completely pay for it

Date: 08-21-2008 16:03

Hmmm. Do we get paid back?Also, what dollar amount?

Date: 08-21-2008 16:03

Food, gas, entertainment.

Date: 08-21-2008 16:06

Um, $120 gas, 7 days of food * $20 a day = $140, and like $200 for doing stuff in Chicago.

Date: 08-21-2008 16:09

So, $460? Tell me what, if anything, you plan to pay back and let me talk to your dad. What day are you leaving?

Date: 08-21-2008 16:12

Well I'll be able to pay it back easier when I start getting paid with my new salary on September 15th.

Date: 08-24-2008 14:15

Ya Fei. With IKEA on your right, Ya Fei is across street, near the left end of a huge strip mall.

Date: 08-25-2008 23:33


Date: 08-26-2008 12:04


Date: 08-26-2008 12:03

Wow, you're up at the crack of dawn : )

Date: 08-26-2008 12:05

Working. I've been up since 8:30

Date: 08-26-2008 12:07

Warms my heart to hear it. Maybe I'll have a job someday soon, too. R u on the quads?

Date: 08-30-2008 17:07

Gazpacho, croutons and sausages at 5:30. Will u b here?

Date: 08-30-2008 17:09

Yeah, can we make it like 5:45?

Date: 08-30-2008 17:09


Date: 09-01-2008 22:13

Safe in DC?

Date: 09-01-2008 22:34


Date: 09-05-2008 11:30

Call when you can for a 1 min call. No reason to go outside. Nothing critical.

Date: 09-07-2008 22:41

Are you home safe?

Date: 09-07-2008 22:43


Date: 09-07-2008 22:42

Night, night

Date: 09-08-2008 18:04

How would I go about getting a prescription to a specific drug?

Date: 09-08-2008 18:06

That's a disconcerting question. If it's you, you'll have to wait until Sep 16, when ur health insurance kicks in, then make an appt with a doc on the online list.

Date: 09-08-2008 18:08

If you mean, how do I keep from getting a generic when I want a brand name, you have to get ur doctor to write 'no substitutions' on the prescription.

Date: 09-08-2008 18:09

Ok, but how do you ask for a specific drug without sounding like junkie? Adderall, it's for people with ADD.

Date: 09-10-2008 17:24

Assuming I make $3200/month after taxes. Minus (guessing) $1000 for rent minus $150 utilities minus $500 for new car and insurance. I should have $775 every 2 weeks. Does that sound right?

Date: 09-10-2008 17:24

Also that apartment I showed you is less than a mile from the metro.

Date: 09-10-2008 17:26

Why don't u do one first, either the car or the apartment, and make sure you're making your budget work first. Also, the Porsche will not drive well in the snow. No driving to Pittsburgh in the winter. Ask Scott if you don't believe me. But I'm impressed ur making a budget.

Date: 09-16-2008 09:23

Can you PDF me the paystubs today?

Date: 09-16-2008 10:12

I can fax them. What's your fax number?

Date: 09-16-2008 10:43

I'll call you when I'm home. You can fax it to me there, once I put paper in the fax machine. Thx.

Date: 09-18-2008 21:47

Someone next to me on the metro is reading your book.

Date: 09-18-2008 22:12

No way! Did you say something?

Date: 09-18-2008 22:36

Yeah. Told her, "my mom wrote that book." She said she was really enjoying it.

Date: 09-20-2008 22:17

Ghost Tpwn: best movie I've seen all summer.

Date: 09-20-2008 22:17


Date: 09-20-2008 22:17

Wow. Better than Iron Man?

Date: 09-22-2008 10:03

So I think I've decided on getting the apartment first. So I'd like to talk to you at some point to discuss administration issues. Thanks :)

Date: 09-22-2008 10:03

Okay. I'll you in an hour or so. In a meeting.

Date: 09-22-2008 13:00

I'm ready. Call when u have time.

Date: 09-22-2008 13:10

I guess you weren't ready

Date: 09-28-2008 23:50

Home safe. Night.

Date: 10-04-2008 09:55

Date: 10-04-2008 17:14

Date: 10-20-2008 10:33

Yeah, sorry.

Date: 10-20-2008 10:38

It was so good seeing you. Thanks for joining the dinner last night.

Date: 10-24-2008 23:39

Did you get my email? If not, check your spam filter. It's funny.

Date: 10-28-2008 18:21

Anything like "e" or "Then We Came to the End" that you could recommend?

Date: 10-28-2008 18:23

Let me think about it. Did u call Daddy?

Date: 10-28-2008 18:31

No, why?

Date: 10-28-2008 18:31

I hope you"re joking. It's his birthday.

Date: 10-28-2008 18:33

Oops, didn't check facebook today. Call him when I get home.

Date: 10-28-2008 18:33

Thank you.

Date: 10-28-2008 18:49

My bank has put me at -$200 w/ another $200 pending! I'm gonna open a new bank account and never touch that account again. It'll cost them more to sue me and my lawyers are free.

Date: 10-28-2008 21:13

Call Daddy now. We're home from the restaurant. He knows you tried to call earlier.

Date: 10-28-2008 21:30

Quick, look at email. Two gr8 pictures.

I need hints for Xmas presents. Teri, dad, cam, and you. I'm thinking a gift card to urban outfitters for cam.

Date: 11-28-2008 09:40

Good on Cam. Give me 5 mins on the other.

Date: 11-28-2008 09:52

Photo album you make online from family pictures of vacations with Teri for Teri. See if H&M has bottle green leather gloves for me (largest size). Saving Private Ryan on Blu-Ray for Daddy.

Date: 11-28-2008 09:54

There's also some nice pearl earrings on to sub in for me or Teri. Daddy's about to update my phone, so you'll have to text him with further questions.

Date: 11-28-2008 10:30

I'm back on my phone if u need me.

Date: 11-28-2008 14:48

Dark green suade? (is that how you spell it?)

Date: 11-28-2008 14:49

Suede is how you spell it. Bottle green leather, but suede good, too. XL

Date: 11-28-2008 17:20

I might be late, there's lots of traffic.

So I'm gonna drive to Chicago tomorrow early-ish and drive back Monday morning. Is that ok?

Date: 12-26-2008 20:25

Sure. Di and Nick approve. Two questions: does Peter know you're coming and what time is 'early-ish'?

Date: 12-26-2008 20:32

Yes he does. Whenever I wake up and pack.

Date: 12-27-2008 21:05

U there?

Date: 12-27-2008 21:19

The rain got terrible at the end of Ohio so I've been driving slow. I'm about 70 miles away.

Date: 12-27-2008 21:19

I'm glad you're being careful.

Date: 12-27-2008 23:06

Looking forward to lunch today. I'm at Breezewood now. Will be parking at Rockville,MD on Red Line and taking Metro to Foggy Bottom.

Stepping aboard Metro at Rockville. C u soon!

Date: 05-06-2009 12:34

got off at Dupont Circle and catching cab

Date: 05-06-2009 12:37

Will call when at your building

Date: 05-07-2009 09:03

Well, I missed the plane by 4 minutes and I paid the $150 to change the ticket to the next flight at 12:30. I suck at life.

Date: 05-07-2009 09:05

It was because I parked in the economy parking lot. Waited 15 for the shuttle and it took another 20 to get to the airport.

Date: 05-07-2009 09:05

It's a learning experience, babe. At least you're way early for the 12:30 flight. I think there's one before that. See if you can get on a wait list. Go to that gate and talk to the agent.

Date: 05-07-2009 09:06

Yeah, parking will do that sometimes. Car service! Or an airport shuttle.

Date: 05-07-2009 09:10

There's no where to plug in a charger? I'm at my gate, who should I talk to? No one is here yet.

Date: 05-07-2009 09:14

Call ur travel agent.

Date: 05-07-2009 11:25

Any luck?

Date: 05-07-2009 11:46

Nope, all full.

Date: 05-07-2009 11:46

How about seats on noon flight?

Date: 05-07-2009 11:52

No, and the guy at my gate looked confused when I asked for an emergency row seat.

Date: 05-07-2009 11:52


Date: 05-07-2009 11:57

Keep asking gate if better seat is available. People cancel all the time.

Date: 05-07-2009 19:16

Waiting for my BART train

Date: 05-07-2009 19:16

You made it!

Date: 05-07-2009 19:16


Date: 05-07-2009 19:19

Are people lined up, like we said?

Date: 05-07-2009 19:33

If you have any trouble with the credit card at the hotel, call me.

Date: 05-08-2009 16:57

Learning anything?

Date: 05-09-2009 14:26

I'm gonna miss my god damn flight again. I fucking left my hotel at 10:00.

Date: 05-09-2009 14:26

Call ur travel agent if you need to rebook.

Date: 05-09-2009 14:28

How fucking early do I have to leave?

Date: 05-09-2009 14:27

R u on the train?

Date: 05-09-2009 14:32

Im waiting for the fucking yellow line...

Date: 05-09-2009 14:33

If you're still in Berkeley, you should call the travel agent now to rebook. They may be able to do it without a fee. You won't make it. It happens, Wy.

Date: 05-09-2009 15:36

What happened?

Date: 05-09-2009 15:40

It got delayed :) departs at 1:25.

Date: 05-09-2009 15:40

Yay! You made it then? Checked in, at the gate and everything?

Date: 05-09-2009 15:43

Yup, getting lunch now

Date: 05-09-2009 15:43

You're the luckiest man since Ringo Starr.

Date: 05-09-2009 16:10

You're telling me. I feel like I just won the lotto.

Date: 05-09-2009 22:07

Made it

Date: 05-09-2009 22:26

Bet you're glad it's over.

Date: 05-10-2009 22:51

Hey! I've been asleep all evening (we ate Indian food) but if you're not already in bed I was hoping to wish you a happy mothers day.

Date: 05-10-2009 22:51

Thank you, my love. It means a lot to hear from you on a day like today.

What food did you get?

Date: 05-10-2009 22:55

Tikia mesala (sp?) and garlic nann.

Date: 05-10-2009 22:54


Date: 05-16-2009 07:50

When do wake up these days, huh?

Date: 05-16-2009 07:50

Where are you? Here? We just woke up. Breakfast at Tom's at 9:30.

Date: 05-16-2009 07:56

Can I come there to shower n stuff. Ten minutes away.

Date: 05-16-2009 07:56

Sure. Come on by.

Date: 05-16-2009 08:05

What's mileage on your car?

Date: 05-16-2009 08:05

Need for registration

Date: 05-30-2009 19:38

Just had to pull your cat off a baby bunny.

Date: 06-05-2009 17:09

Sorry I missed you. What's up?

Date: 06-11-2009 12:05

How and when should I ask for a raise/promotion?

Date: 06-11-2009 12:05

Big question to ask in a text. Do you have time to talk?

Date: 06-13-2009 09:58

Did u invite Ansel for dinner? 5 pm.

Date: 06-13-2009 09:59


Date: 06-13-2009 09:59

Do u want to? Don't have to. I'd like to c him.

Date: 06-13-2009 10:01

Yea, I will.

Date: 06-14-2009 19:52

You were born at 7:57 pm--now--right before Moonlighting with Bruce Willis and Cybil Shephard started. Happy birthday, my wonderful boy.

Date: 06-21-2009 09:34

Will Jean be joining you at breakfast at 10?

Date: 06-21-2009 10:49

No, not today

Date: 06-22-2009 19:26

I told Donna you were touched she was worried. She said she's a professional worrier and that a daughter would have called so her parents didn't have to worry.

Date: 06-22-2009 19:26

Then she added, 'Boys.'

Date: 06-27-2009 17:36

Hey, did u get a card from Teri for your birthday? And if so, did u send her a thank-you email?

Date: 07-03-2009 09:26

R u working today, or do you have a day off?

Date: 07-11-2009 12:06

What is Ansel's current cell phone #?

Date: 07-12-2009 08:50

R u awake?

Date: 07-15-2009 15:53

Are you driving here or taking the Metro?

Date: 07-15-2009 16:08

Driving, I'm planning on leaving from dinner to go to the beach.

Date: 07-15-2009 16:27

Date: 07-16-2009 14:15

It was nice to have dinner with you. Have a great time at the beach. Give Jean a hug for me.

Date: 07-18-2009 21:27

I won!!!!

Date: 07-21-2009 09:14

My boss, Bob, got let go.

Date: 07-21-2009 09:13

Holy shit. To whom do you report?

Date: 07-21-2009 09:15

The head of IT

Date: 07-21-2009 09:15

Jeez. Have you worked with him before?

Date: 07-21-2009 09:17

Yeah, he was at the training in San Fran.

Date: 07-21-2009 09:17

Another reason training can pay off. Wow. I guess everyone is shocked.

Date: 07-21-2009 09:19

Do you have a minute to talk?

Date: 07-21-2009 09:58

I can call you at 11:00, sound good?

Date: 07-21-2009 09:57

Yes. Nothing important.

Date: 07-22-2009 19:42

Did you pay Credit Union?

Date: 07-22-2009 22:07

Yes, set up automated thing to pay minimum amount.

Date: 07-26-2009 15:56

So jean was wondering when we might get to see that dresser.

Date: 07-26-2009 16:01

Les has done the priming. He'll finish this week and drive it down next week, okay?

Date: 08-02-2009 14:47

You know her birthday has been on facebook right?

Date: 08-02-2009 18:24

Asking lends so much more of a personal touch. You know I love her.

Date: 08-15-2009 08:11

Breakfast at Tom's, 8:30.

Date: 08-18-2009 15:05

After two months, five rounds of pitches and countless non-billable hours: out of 25 competing agencies—we won a multi-million dollar contract with Audi!!! :D

Date: 08-18-2009 15:05

Congratulations! You guys must be ready to party. Wow! Audi! Nifty!

Date: 08-18-2009 15:08

You took an Audi to the prom, remember?

Date: 08-18-2009 15:11

Yeah, maybe we’ll give a discount and I’ll be able to get one of my own ;p

Date: 08-21-2009 00:31

I have kitten if you want her.

Date: 08-21-2009 09:38


Date: 08-21-2009 09:42

Just finishing here at the dentist. Is Cam up?

Date: 08-21-2009 09:43

Your watch is on my sink.

Date: 08-21-2009 09:46

The question/exclamation was: Tom's!?

Date: 08-23-2009 20:00

R u home? Did u like ur car?

Date: 08-23-2009 21:59

Yeah. I noticed you got the car washed and cleaned, thank you so much :D I also enjoyed the RainX you got for the windshield, this afternoon actually, while driving through the rain. Thanks again for everything. And tell dad I had a great time with him this weekend, we'll have to do again sometime ;) soon.

Date: 08-24-2009 15:30

You're very welcome. I also had your oil and air filter changed.

Date: 08-27-2009 11:44

Call me when u can. I have an easy Flash question.

Date: 08-28-2009 12:02

Got a minute to call? Nothing important.

Date: 08-29-2009 19:35

Is it ok if me and two friends hang out on the front porch until like 8:15?

Date: 08-29-2009 19:40

Absolutely. Beer in fridge.

Date: 08-29-2009 19:40

Assuming they're 21, of course.

Date: 08-29-2009 23:39

Can u meet Daddy at Destinta at 11 am for movie tomorrow?

Date: 08-29-2009 23:41


Date: 08-30-2009 14:48

Wyatt, I apologize. I didn't handle that very well. You deserve privacy and a place you can go without being asked questions. I wlll do try to do better. No more questions.--Mom

Date: 08-30-2009 15:09

I'm sorry too, I know you mean well but I'm just under some stress and I just needed some time to think. I wasn't angry at you, just frustrated.

Date: 08-30-2009 15:11

I definitely mean well but make mistakes sometimes. Thank you for your text. You're a grown up now. I have to keep reminding myself you know how to take care of things. I'm very proud.

Date: 09-05-2009 18:15

It's Ansel's birthday.

Date: 09-17-2009 12:37

I got a message on my LinkedIn account. It didn't look like an automated message. It was a guy offering me a job at $60k. Should I tell my boss? I don't really want to switch jobs, I just want to encourage them to give me a raise.

Date: 09-17-2009 12:39

Ask the LinkedIn guy to call you. Find out more, so you can learn what's worth what, even if you have no intention of changing jobs. Ask about benefits (especially 401k match) and turnover.

Date: 09-17-2009 12:42

But should I tell my boss? Like I said, I would prefer to not change jobs. I like it here, I just want more $$$ ;D

Date: 09-17-2009 12:43

Easier to tell boss if you have more info. Frankly, though, the ploy doesn't work unless you're willing to move. It could backfire. They say bye. You end up embarrassed.

Date: 09-17-2009 12:44

Better if you say, I have an offer for $X from Y. I'd prefer to stay. What can we do?

Date: 09-17-2009 13:02

But you're suggesting that I wait until I have more information, right? I shouldn't, let's say, email my boss today and say that?

Date: 09-17-2009 13:03

Yeah, I'd say more info will help it not sound like a bluff. Besides, don't you want to find out? $60 might be too low.

Date: 09-17-2009 13:04

Remember, 401k and turnover are critical.

Date: 10-03-2009 12:20

R u in Pittsburgh?

Date: 10-09-2009 17:41

Can I use the Subaru this weekend?

Date: 10-09-2009 17:42

Probably. When?

Date: 10-09-2009 19:59

I rear ended another car with Jean car. Fuck my life. Fortunately no one was hurt, I was going maybe 5mph accelerating from a stop, trying to turn into the next lane.

Date: 10-11-2009 09:45

Just woke up. Be there at 10:20.

Date: 10-11-2009 09:50


Date: 10-13-2009 14:57

Hi, boy. Did you already send Chuck and Mary a picture?

Date: 10-14-2009 18:34

Wyatt, I just saw Jean's FB status. Ask her if there's room in your bedroom for the mirrored wardrobe. It has a rod to hang clothes.

Date: 10-28-2009 17:23

Now would be a good to time to call.

Date: 11-03-2009 13:12

My manager, Jenny, decided to leave RTC.

Date: 11-06-2009 23:47

Breakfast 2morrow or Sunday?

Date: 11-07-2009 07:57

Sunday, we leaving DC now. I feel so old.

Date: 11-08-2009 08:50

Can we do breakfast at 9:30 instead of 10:30?

Date: 11-19-2009 15:35

Peter's car was stolen.

Date: 11-19-2009 16:36

Damn, that fucking sucks. Who would steal that car? Without a title, the most I would assume you could get for it is like $1000.

Date: 11-19-2009 16:47

If that. Still, Accords most stolen car, so watch out. Windshield man never called.

Date: 11-19-2009 16:48

Yeah, he said everything was taken care of.

Date: 11-24-2009 19:58

How is India? Are you taking good care of her?

Date: 11-24-2009 19:59

Yeah, she's an attention whore.

Date: 11-24-2009 20:01

Does she sleep with you?

Date: 11-27-2009 10:03

Are there any Asthma inhalers at home?

Date: 11-27-2009 11:08

What's your status?

Date: 11-27-2009 11:18

Next in line. They said I had low oxygen levels.

Date: 11-27-2009 11:31

Ugh. I went to the bathroom for two minutes and they skipped me.

Date: 11-27-2009 11:40

Seated on plane. We take off for Charlotte at noon. Keep sending updates my way. We land around 2 pm, but I'm online for the next 20 mins.

Date: 11-27-2009 11:46

I was here this time, my name is at the top of the queue, and they skipped over me again.

Date: 11-27-2009 11:47

I'm leaving

Date: 11-27-2009 11:47

Ask why?

Date: 11-27-2009 13:18

Got a script for an inhaler.

Date: 11-27-2009 16:44

Landed. Now waiting for luggage.

Date: 11-27-2009 16:48

I can't eat with you guys tonight. I made plans with Hannah on Monday. I was planning on having our big dinner tomorrow.

Date: 11-27-2009 16:56

Okay. We'll catch you later.

Date: 11-28-2009 16:15

Keep my laptop safe until next weekend, k?

Date: 11-28-2009 16:14


Date: 11-29-2009 10:02

Home safe?

Date: 11-30-2009 14:39


Date: 11-30-2009 14:46

Woo hoo!

Date: 12-04-2009 16:10

Do u know an Alex Gorsky?

Date: 12-04-2009 22:51

Mom, as much as I'd love to see Teri this weekend I still have to do something about my car. And on top of that I hate the airport and flying. I really want to see her though. Would she be okay with Jean and I coming up to visit some weekend in the spring or something?

Date: 12-04-2009 23:09

Yes, that sounds lovely.

Date: 12-07-2009 15:00

Ugh. Trapped.

Date: 12-07-2009 15:01

Welcome to the wonderful world of car shopping.

Date: 12-07-2009 15:02

Date: 12-12-2009 11:36

Cameron is just using my camera. She didn't have a memory card in her's.

Date: 12-12-2009 12:43

You're such a sweet brother.

Date: 12-12-2009 16:17

Got my stuff from the car. Got the license plate too.

Date: 12-12-2009 16:21

What is the plan for tomorrow?

Date: 12-12-2009 18:14

Be there in 5 min

Date: 12-12-2009 18:14


Date: 12-13-2009 08:12

Up for IHOP?

Date: 12-13-2009 14:34

Home safe--in case you were worried. Love ya.

Date: 12-25-2009 13:03

Merry Christmas, boy. We're heading to Donna's.

Date: 01-01-2010 12:19

Happy New Year, Boy!

Date: 01-03-2010 09:55

Are you in DC?

Date: 01-04-2010 19:48

Could you give me a call?

Date: 01-11-2010 20:30

AT&T should be sending you a text with your new voicemail password. I'm sorry they didn't let me pick it. I was going to choose 'ILOVEMOM.'

Date: 01-24-2010 20:05

What do you know if anything about an ancient pencil sharpener in our family room?

Date: 01-27-2010 16:48

Daddy and I want oooh and aaah over the iPad with you. Call when you can.

Date: 02-06-2010 14:11

Date: 02-09-2010 10:24

Work today, boy?

Date: 02-09-2010 10:52

Yeah. Me and like five other people.

Date: 02-09-2010 10:52

Date: 02-09-2010 10:53

Wow! I'm impressed. I bet it will be your last day of work (at work) this week. Daddy was cancelled for today.

Date: 02-13-2010 21:33

Could I prossibly get you netflix login so Jean and I can stream movies?

Date: 02-13-2010 21:35

Yes., jwcc. Enjoy.

Date: 02-13-2010 21:38

I just signed out.

Date: 02-13-2010 21:39

P.S. Cam is wearing that blue sweater/hoodie you were looking so hard for last time you were here.

Date: 02-14-2010 10:25

Three package questions. First, did longjohns ever arrive? Second: did you get a package from me in the last couple of days? Third: have you received a payment book for Honda?

Date: 02-14-2010 13:59

Yes. No. Yes.

Date: 02-14-2010 14:01

Cool! Look for gift from me, sent to Eads, in next couple days. Longjohns fit?

Date: 03-13-2010 14:48

I just emailed you and dad a lease we might sign.

Date: 03-16-2010 12:17

Hey, I was wondering if you might be able to help me out with some cash this month. I just dropped $1200 on the security deposit which was like 90% of my pay check.

Date: 03-16-2010 13:21

Call tonight. We'll help.

Date: 03-19-2010 17:46

So dad asked me for a dollar amount that would get me through May. And I figure $1000 would be perfect. I could probably be debt free with $2000, but $1000 would be plenty. Love you guys ;)

Date: 03-19-2010 20:16

Do you use Less CSS or Blueprint CSS or Maki. I'm watching a presentation on them from a geek like you. He even used the phrase 'pixel perfect.'

Date: 03-19-2010 20:25

Less CSS for scripting/compiling but using Baseline CSS v0.5.1 instead of Blueprint to take advantage of HTML5 elements.

Date: 03-22-2010 15:44

Did the check arrive at your work?

Date: 03-22-2010 15:46

I'm out sick.

Date: 03-22-2010 15:45

My poor sweet pea.

Date: 03-22-2010 17:18

Feel better.

Date: 03-30-2010 21:52

What are you in Chicago for?

Date: 03-30-2010 21:57

Learning about a client's web properties from another agency who's losing the client's business.

Date: 03-30-2010 21:57

You're so grown up now. It makes me want to cry.

Date: 04-04-2010 22:06

Hope you had a nice Easter, Sweet Pea. Do you remember hunting for Easter eggs with Peter on the quads at the University of Chicago? Your Aunt Diane did some nice stuff for you guys.

Date: 04-05-2010 16:53

Yeah I remember. Unfortunately I couldn't sleep the night before so my Easter kinda sucked.

Date: 04-05-2010 16:53

Poor baby. Are you I'll?

Date: 04-05-2010 16:53


Date: 04-05-2010 17:15

Somethings up. The past week I haven't been able to sleep on 3 of those days.

Date: 04-05-2010 17:17

Has anything in your routine changed? Caffeine or chocolate at night? Upset at work? Too much alcohol? Not enough exercise? Try a cup of warm milk with Qwik in it before after a long walk, before going to bed. Also, skip video games for a night.

Date: 04-06-2010 17:36

Will you be sleeping in our room or the guest room?

Date: 04-06-2010 18:03

The one without the litter box.

Date: 04-11-2010 14:01

For the future, don't set up play dates for me. I hate them.

Date: 04-11-2010 14:05

Trish, do you mean? Sorry.

Date: 04-21-2010 11:49

Wished Cam a happy birthday—longest text ever.

Date: 04-21-2010 11:49

You're a good brother. Did she answer?

Date: 04-21-2010 11:50

We're going to Melting Pot tonight. Wish you were going to be there.

Date: 04-21-2010 17:26

Your text made Cameron so happy.

Date: 04-22-2010 13:14

Cam passed the test!

Date: 04-24-2010 21:43

Could you send me an itinerary of what you had planned for Jean and I? Jean wants to see if we can fit in some sight seeing and I have a friend there whom I'd like to see as well.

Date: 04-24-2010 21:45

We definitely have Teri for Saturday, so I'd like you to spend Sat afternoon and evening with us. Why don't you plan your other activities for Sunday?

Date: 04-24-2010 21:57

Yeah thats fine. What time is our train on Sunday? Jean wants to get lunch at Serendipity 3.

Date: 04-24-2010 21:58

Check the email reservation, but it's somtime like 4.

Date: 04-24-2010 22:08

Also, we probably won't be able to meet u in the city on Sat until about 2.

Date: 04-29-2010 10:55

So that interview I had about a week ago, well it didn't go very well. The woman told me I didn't meet the requirement for years of experience. However, she emailed me yesterday and asked if I could send her some code samples... Well that turned into another phone interview... Let me know when I can call you.

Date: 04-30-2010 23:49

The Amtrak confirmation you sent me didn't have the attached barcode images.

Date: 05-01-2010 00:00

Resent. To gmail address. Confirm u got barcode.

Date: 05-01-2010 00:05

Got it. Thanks ;)

Date: 05-01-2010 08:27

On train?

Date: 05-01-2010 08:28

We're 30 mins past Breezewood. Left at 6 am!

Date: 05-01-2010 08:28

Yawwwwwn... Success.

We'll meet you at 3.

Date: 05-01-2010 14:37

Meet us at Cheap Jacks, at 31st and Fifth. Okay?

Date: 05-01-2010 14:45

Vintage clothing

Date: 05-01-2010 14:55

Date: 05-01-2010 15:00

Date: 05-03-2010 17:33

Illusions Thai, about five blocks from your house, on Beauregard, has MARVELOUS pad see euw.

Date: 05-29-2010 20:22

We're at the meat restaurant in Pittsburgh with Diane and Nick. Wish you were here.

What are you guys up to this weekend?

Date: 05-29-2010 20:25

Wishing we were at the meet resturant. Tell them hello for me.

Date: 06-11-2010 11:16

One of my Tweets got published in an article!

Date: 06-11-2010 11:15


Date: 06-11-2010 11:17

Just read article. That is totally cool. Did you text Daddy, too?

Date: 06-11-2010 11:18

How did you know? Did the reporter contact you?

Date: 06-11-2010 11:52

He just @mentioned me on his Tweet linking to the article:

Date: 06-11-2010 16:13

Where r u? R u dead?

Date: 06-11-2010 16:13

Sorry. Meant for Daddy. Ignore.

Date: 06-12-2010 23:09

Yeah, 10:30 should be good.

Date: 06-14-2010 08:34

Happy 22nd, Boy. Can't believe you're so grown up. Love, Mom

Date: 06-14-2010 13:23

Thanks for the birthday wish. Love you, too.

Date: 06-14-2010 20:07

What color, what hard drive for iPhone?

Date: 06-14-2010 20:11

Black, and which ever is the $300 one.

Date: 06-15-2010 11:29

Did you order it?

Date: 06-15-2010 11:29

Tried about a dozen times. Process kept failing. Site must be overloaded. Will try mote later.

Date: 06-15-2010 11:29


Date: 06-15-2010 11:58

How far did you get in the process. I'm at the point where it's asking for the last 4 digits of your SSN.

Date: 06-15-2010 12:03

Do you want to try it? If so, call me and I'll give you the numbers.

Date: 06-15-2010 12:32

So our new client, BlackRock Inc., is the third largest shareholder of BP.

Date: 06-15-2010 12:35

Oh boy.

Date: 06-15-2010 16:33

No luck yet.

Date: 06-15-2010 16:50

Looks like if you download the apple store app you can buy it through there.

Date: 06-15-2010 17:01

I couldn't order yours or Cam's from my phone. Try ordering yours at your phone. 4882

Date: 06-15-2010 17:51

Date: 06-15-2010 17:51

Hope this works out. Looks like it works on the website too. No pre-order, just reserve.

Date: 06-15-2010 17:56

Please make sure I'm a primary thingy for next thursday so I don't run into any problems.

Date: 06-15-2010 18:05

Will do.

Date: 06-16-2010 12:23

Your daughter just wrote me a really sweet text.

Date: 06-16-2010 12:23

Awww. Why?

Date: 06-16-2010 12:24

Just another birthday wish.

Date: 06-16-2010 12:24

That's nice. Did you do something fun to celebrate on Monday night?

Date: 06-19-2010 12:48

Just saw a VW Bug with flames painted down the side, LOL.

Date: 06-19-2010 16:50

Christmas present!!!

Date: 06-22-2010 11:01

R u picking up phone at Apple Store or AT&T?

Date: 06-22-2010 11:06

Apple store.

Date: 06-24-2010 09:03

Did u get ur phone yet?

Date: 06-24-2010 09:10

Date: 06-24-2010 09:11

Yikes! Did you get my email with number?

Date: 06-24-2010 09:13


Date: 06-24-2010 11:28

This dude offered, get this TEN whole dollars for a place in line! He sat behind me until the cops showed up.

Date: 06-24-2010 11:28

Date: 06-24-2010 11:30

Are you STILL in line??

Date: 06-24-2010 11:32

Oh yeah. Four and a half hours.

Date: 06-24-2010 11:32

How much longer, do you think? I wish I could swing by to bring you some food : )

Date: 06-24-2010 11:35

About 45 minutes I'm guessing.

Date: 06-24-2010 11:35

Cam will be dying to video chat with you.

Date: 06-24-2010 12:17

Sent from my new iPhone!

Date: 06-24-2010 12:17

Woo hoo! Call Cam!

Date: 06-29-2010 21:48

I need to consult with you on a website question? Do you have five minutes?

Date: 07-04-2010 11:47

That kid was in Hannah's homeroom.

Date: 07-04-2010 11:47

So sad.

Date: 07-04-2010 11:49

You really shouldn't feel bad for that kid or his parents. Idiot kid and bad parenting.

Date: 07-04-2010 22:27

We're having breakfast with Janet, Lee and Donna tomorrow at the Eat n Park on West Liberty at 10 am if you and/or Jean want to join us.

Date: 07-05-2010 22:17

R u home safe?

Date: 07-05-2010 22:18

Yes mother ;)

Date: 07-05-2010 22:18

So glad, son.

Date: 07-05-2010 22:25

So what's the last weekend you'll be in town for? I'd like to see Ansel again before the end of July, so I didn't know if I might be able to catch you guys.

Date: 07-05-2010 22:26

Next weekend is the last. We leave Saturday, July 17 for the lake. Les and Cam will be back around dinner time on Wednesday, July 28.

Date: 07-05-2010 22:41

So, technically, the 31st/1st is a weekend we'll be around (me not till the first.)

Date: 07-07-2010 16:23

What happened with the raise?

Date: 07-07-2010 16:27

The boss said he fought for a 20% raise, but was only able to get 7%. So that means $53,500/yr or an extra $100/paycheck.

Date: 07-07-2010 16:28

Congratulations. We're so proud.

Date: 07-14-2010 11:20

Should I call state farm. Someone knocked off my side view mirror last night.

Date: 07-14-2010 11:20

Do you have the mirror?

Date: 07-14-2010 11:21

Yes, it's still hanging on by an electric cord.

Date: 07-14-2010 11:23

So I don't think I should drive with it still attached. So should I call state farm/police?

Date: 07-14-2010 11:23

Don't call State Farm. We'll pay. For now, tape it on as best you can with duct tape today. Get it fixed in DC or Pittsburgh and we'll pay.

Date: 07-14-2010 11:24

Tape it before driving it so it doesn't damage body.

Date: 07-14-2010 11:24

Daddy will call you in 30 minutes.

Date: 07-14-2010 11:26

Why do I even have insurance if they're not gonna fix my car when someone breaks it? And why am I not calling the police?

Date: 07-14-2010 11:26

Also, I don't have duct tape so now what?

Date: 07-14-2010 11:26

Go to hardware store to buy some.

Date: 07-14-2010 11:26

Deductible is $500. Will cost less to fix.

Date: 07-14-2010 11:28

I'm calling the police.

Date: 07-14-2010 11:27

You can. But we'd rather not have State Farm involved.

Date: 07-14-2010 11:28

Do you think it's vandalism (deliberate) or an accident?

Date: 07-14-2010 11:33

Accident I think.

Date: 07-14-2010 11:35

Then I wouldn't bother with the police. We don't want to give State Farm a reason to ask why you're in DC.

Date: 07-24-2010 20:48

So someone hit my mirror off again.

Date: 07-24-2010 21:04

Park in the driveway. Still have the mirror?

Date: 07-24-2010 20:48

So someone hit my mirror off again.

Date: 07-24-2010 21:06

Yup, just re-duct taped it.

Date: 08-01-2010 11:39

I landed. What's the lunch situation?

Date: 08-01-2010 11:40

Well I'm at home with Cameron and no clue where dad is.

Date: 08-01-2010 11:40

He just picked me up at airport.

Date: 08-01-2010 11:40

We'll be home in 20 mins.

Date: 08-14-2010 21:08

Did you make it to NC?

Date: 08-14-2010 21:09

Leaving tomorrow morning.

Date: 08-14-2010 21:16

Have a wonderful trip. Text me when you arrive, okay?

Date: 08-14-2010 21:37

Will do.

Date: 08-15-2010 09:29


Date: 08-15-2010 15:46

Get some sun on that pale skin!

Date: 08-17-2010 20:29

Call Cam. Ansel's over and you can talk via FaceTime.

Date: 08-17-2010 20:46

No wifi here ;(

Date: 08-17-2010 20:47

Invite Ansel down to DC for a weekend. He wants to visit.

Date: 08-17-2010 21:17

Whatever weekend he's free. I will probably be up to Pittsburgh the weekend after next.

Date: 08-23-2010 21:48

Posted pictures to facebook.

Date: 08-23-2010 22:17

Looks like you had a good time.

Date: 08-23-2010 22:26

They're on Flickr now too. In case you wanted to see a non-shit, uncompressed version.

Date: 08-23-2010 22:26

We looked on Flickr. We want more pics of you. I'm going to send you a cute video.

Date: 08-25-2010 19:43

Can you take a look at the email I just sent you.

Date: 08-26-2010 10:58

Sorry for not texting. I'm feeling better. Pain is gone.

Date: 08-26-2010 10:58

Oh, good. I figured Jean would text if you were dead.

Date: 08-26-2010 11:20


Date: 08-28-2010 18:11

Don't forget to visit Cam at Kuhn's. She really wants you to see her.

Date: 09-09-2010 18:35

Can we get you and Jean for dinner on Saturday?

Date: 09-09-2010 18:42

She's doing something with her family that day, Sunday might work. PS we're staying until Monday afternoon.

Date: 09-09-2010 18:43

Okay, can we get you for Sunday night? Doris and Lloyd will be in town.

Date: 09-09-2010 18:44

I'll run it by Jean. I can be there for sure.

Date: 09-09-2010 18:44


Date: 09-11-2010 21:16

We kinda sorta broke your table on the front porch. Glass everywhere.

Date: 09-13-2010 10:08

Pamela's, Washington Road, 12:45, okay?

Date: 09-13-2010 10:18

Jean can't go if it's that late. In fact 11:30 would be better.

Date: 09-13-2010 10:19

Okay, 11:30 at Pamela's.

Date: 09-13-2010 11:07

11:45, sorry!

Date: 09-13-2010 11:29


Date: 09-18-2010 09:32

Just leaving Breezewood.

Date: 09-18-2010 11:20

How far?

Date: 09-18-2010 11:24

3 mins from hotel.

Date: 09-18-2010 11:27

Ok better question: when should I expect you?

Date: 09-18-2010 11:27

We'll call you in 5.

Date: 09-18-2010 11:47

1999 Jefferson Davis Highway, Arlington, VA 22202. Marriott Crystal City at Reagan National Airport (not Marriott Crystal Gateway.)

Date: 09-18-2010 22:09

Did you look at my video yet?

Date: 09-19-2010 13:23


Date: 09-19-2010 22:07

Wy, Cam left her backpack in your car. Can you drop it off by 9:30 tomorrow (or tonight)?

Date: 09-19-2010 23:15

Yeah, I'll drop it off tomorrow morning.

Date: 09-20-2010 09:13

Mmmmm. Eating my leftover bacon...

Date: 09-20-2010 10:05

We just got on 270. Seemed to have avoided the traffic. It was great to see you. Love you.

Date: 09-20-2010 19:04

Where on Earth did it go???

Date: 09-20-2010 19:06

Date: 09-20-2010 19:07

Is that a garbage can you're eating out of?

Date: 10-15-2010 22:54

R u in Pittsburgh?

Date: 10-15-2010 22:54

No, I'm visiting Johnstown.

Date: 10-15-2010 22:55

Ah. Okay. Have a nice time.

Date: 10-21-2010 21:40


Date: 10-21-2010 21:42

I don't know who's cuter, you or the kitty.

Date: 10-25-2010 18:31

Call me tonight when you have a chance. I have your absentee ballot.

Date: 10-26-2010 20:04


Date: 10-26-2010 20:04

Impossible to read.

Date: 10-26-2010 20:26

Did you smear tuna juice on that magazine?

Date: 11-05-2010 14:08

Call me with an update when you're done, okay?

Date: 11-06-2010 18:08

Feeling any better today?

Date: 11-06-2010 19:39


Date: 11-06-2010 19:40

Sorry. Yeah. Not a question.

Date: 11-06-2010 19:52

Oh, good.

Date: 11-08-2010 14:45

How's your sleep? No coughing?

Date: 11-12-2010 19:43

Do you know a little girl named Ellie who lives next to Hanna? I met her mother tonight. Apparently, Ellie's in love with you.

Date: 11-12-2010 19:44

Yes, I know she is ;)

Date: 11-12-2010 19:46

She wanted her mom to invite me over. Lol.

Date: 11-12-2010 19:47

Ellie asked her mom if you could babysit.

Date: 11-12-2010 19:49

Girls always do like them older boys ;)

Date: 11-16-2010 19:45

Please call your sister. She's alone--we're in SC--and she's a little anxious. Don't tell her I said that.

Date: 11-19-2010 18:29

What do you and Jean want for Christmas?

Date: 11-26-2010 22:39

There's some pizza and half an Italian hoagie on the stove.

Date: 11-28-2010 18:17

Are you home safe?

Date: 11-28-2010 18:23


Date: 11-30-2010 15:12

Date: 11-30-2010 15:12

First time I've emptied an entire checkbook.

Date: 11-30-2010 15:13

You have checks?? This is major news to me. What do you use checks for?

Date: 11-30-2010 15:17

Rent, utilities, and I just wrote a check for $135 for having our yard cleaned.

Date: 12-03-2010 19:03

Made it safely.

Date: 12-05-2010 17:40

Home safe.

Date: 12-05-2010 17:45

Thank you. Are kitties okay?

Date: 12-08-2010 11:38

Date: 12-08-2010 11:38

This is what I get for letting her stay. She's perfectly fine, just not the car.

Date: 12-11-2010 15:18

Date: 12-11-2010 15:18

Test batch, Lily's buns.

Date: 12-11-2010 15:43

Date: 12-11-2010 15:43

Finished product. Mmmmm.

Date: 12-11-2010 16:01


Date: 12-23-2010 13:01

Sooo. Where is everyone?

Date: 12-23-2010 13:09

I'm at lunch with friends. Daddy will be home at 4. Want to eat at Campiti's tonight at 8?

Date: 12-23-2010 13:10

Cam in school till 3 then works 4-8.

Date: 12-24-2010 13:33

Did u talk 2 Jean?

Date: 12-24-2010 14:15

She's having lunch or something with her dad tomorrow. I haven't had a chance to ask her about the morning and she's with her dad now so it's kind of weird.

Date: 12-25-2010 17:42

If you're not going to entertain Scott I'm leaving.

Date: 12-25-2010 22:53

Date: 12-25-2010 22:53

I'm sick again.

Date: 12-25-2010 22:56

And still expecting a girl.

Poor baby. Keep warm, take Tylenol and drink hot liquids.

Date: 12-27-2010 10:29

100.5°F so what should I do?

Date: 12-27-2010 10:40

Call Romberger at 412-422-3590 (Bass Wolfson Pediatrics, 5608 Wilkins Avenue, Squirrel Hill -- he moved.) Or go to Med Express at 1984 Greentree Road, where the Blockbuster used to be, near my Giant Eagle. 412-343-3627.

Date: 12-27-2010 10:40

Have them listen for pneumonia.

Date: 12-28-2010 20:50

Would the humane society be able to fix our kitties before we go back to DC? Apparently our female cat is hitting puberty…

Date: 12-28-2010 20:57

Maybe. You'd have to check. Plus, they'll charge you since the cats didn't come from them.

Date: 12-29-2010 09:16

Your god damn dog was barking for AT LEAST twenty solid minutes this morning before I was forced to get out of bed and shut him up.

Date: 12-31-2010 23:59

Happy New Year, Boy!

Date: 01-01-2011 00:11

Happy New Year!

Date: 01-02-2011 13:22

Are you at home? Have you seen my daughter?

Date: 01-02-2011 13:23

She's still asleep.

Date: 01-02-2011 13:26


Date: 01-02-2011 13:26

What time are you leaving today?

Date: 01-02-2011 13:48


Date: 01-02-2011 13:49

Have a safe trip. It was great to see you and Jean. Peter and Yeimi say they might be coming to Pittsburgh in February. Love you!

Date: 01-04-2011 21:18

Have you played the Madden game yet? Is it any fun?

Date: 01-04-2011 22:03

Not as fun as madden 64 ;)

Date: 01-21-2011 17:52

I'm really sorry. I'm swamped at work. Can I call you in like an hour?

Date: 01-21-2011 17:53

No prob. Anytime. We're driving home from Cleveland after visiting Case Western with Cam. Love you.

Date: 01-27-2011 19:15

Was the snow hard on you? I was in NYC. We got 17 inches last night. Uffda!

Date: 01-27-2011 19:17

We got like 6 inches. Warm and sunny this morning though.

Date: 01-27-2011 19:17

You weren't stuck in traffic on your way home yesterday, were you? Also, did Jean hear on the internship?

Date: 01-30-2011 14:39

Hey, can I talk to you when you have a chance? I'm really sorry to have to ask, but ever since Jean's been out of work we've been having trouble making ends meet. I just got paid today but it's just enough to pay rent and we have another utilities bill for $250 that needs paid too. I really hate asking you for this, but Jean has an interview tomorrow and hopefully we'll be able to get back on our feet.

Date: 02-02-2011 08:23

I mailed the check to your office on Monday. Have you received it?

Date: 02-02-2011 08:26

I'll let you know in a bit. Thank you again!

Date: 02-02-2011 09:28

No it has not.

Date: 02-02-2011 09:28

Okay, well it should arrive today, I would think. Happy Groundhog Day!

Date: 02-02-2011 09:31

Did you get any snow or ice? All we got was rain and it's a high of 50°F today.

Date: 02-02-2011 09:37

Rain is all we got, and it's sunny, blue sky and 42 degrees! Best day of winter so far!

Date: 02-05-2011 08:52

Honda Financial Services called Daddy. Did you make your car payment?

Date: 02-05-2011 15:48

I'm making it now.

Date: 02-05-2011 15:48

Call about Jean's news!

Date: 02-07-2011 20:31

Just got another call from Honda Financial. Is that handled?

Date: 02-07-2011 20:41

Yeah, sorry about that.

Date: 02-07-2011 20:42

But is it paid now?

Date: 02-07-2011 20:43


Date: 02-09-2011 09:10

So what happened?

Date: 02-09-2011 09:11

401K can be rolled over, no benefits while on the beach and no signing bonus. I said yes anyway,

Date: 02-09-2011 09:12

Congratulations! Good luck at work today.

Date: 02-09-2011 10:04

Date: 02-09-2011 20:22

Love the Lester thing. What happened at work?

Date: 02-09-2011 20:36

Turned in my two weeks. My boss was happy for me.

Date: 02-09-2011 20:36

Oh, good.

Date: 02-15-2011 14:23

Is my Social Security card at home?

Date: 02-15-2011 14:29

Maybe, but unlikely. I think we gave it to you when RTC asked for it. I'mnit at home, but Daddy can check at 4 pm.

Date: 02-15-2011 14:30

Yeah, but I'm pretty sure I brought it back home.

Date: 02-15-2011 14:35

Oh. Okay.

Date: 02-16-2011 10:13

I emailed you the contact and benefits package. I'm going in to sign them at 11:00 so let me know if there's anything I should know.

Date: 02-16-2011 10:24

Got it. Daddy's reviewing. Jeff Bagley is reviewing. If you receive a call from area code 724, answer it. It's Jeff.

Date: 02-16-2011 11:22

Did u talk to Jeff?

Date: 02-16-2011 11:24


Date: 02-16-2011 11:24

If u have benefit questions, call me.

Date: 02-17-2011 13:15

What time is dinner?

Date: 02-17-2011 13:15

What time would you like? 6 pm?

Date: 02-17-2011 13:41


Date: 02-17-2011 13:51

Meet at our house at 5:30 or earlier?

Date: 02-17-2011 16:47

Sure. Where are we eating at again?

Date: 02-17-2011 16:58

Table. It's on Canonsburg Lake. Are you coming here first?

Date: 02-17-2011 17:10

We'll drive to Table now and can meet you at 5:45.

Date: 02-17-2011 17:18

On our way.

Date: 02-19-2011 18:53

Any interest in brunch tomorrow? Or dinner?

Date: 02-20-2011 09:18

Brunch. At 11:00?

Date: 02-20-2011 09:18

Yes. Where?

Date: 02-20-2011 09:20

Wherever you want.

Date: 02-20-2011 09:20

Eat N Park? South Hills Village.

Date: 02-20-2011 09:21

Sure thing.

Date: 02-20-2011 18:10

Home safe? It just started snowing here.

Date: 02-20-2011 18:12

Almost, no snow here ;)

Date: 02-21-2011 18:17

I'm making grandma's macaroni snack and I forget: are you supposed to stir it while it boils?

Date: 02-21-2011 19:38


Date: 02-22-2011 07:18

Good luck today, boy!

Date: 02-22-2011 07:23

…yawwwwwwwn. So early.

Date: 02-22-2011 08:48

Absolutely no traffic. I'm here early! What is going on? Hell must have frozen over.

Date: 02-22-2011 19:39

So...? How was it?

Date: 02-22-2011 19:50

Interesting, I didn't have a desk or a computer for awhile there. My manager was out until about noon and the person who was supposed to take over was out of the office. It took about an hour for the HR guy to find me my desk, and even then, it was still the wrong desk.

Date: 02-22-2011 19:52

Nowhere to go but up.

Date: 02-23-2011 19:33

Did Day 2 go better?

Date: 02-23-2011 20:46

Yeah. Haven't really done much yet.

Date: 02-25-2011 19:48

No power since 3:00.

Date: 02-25-2011 19:48

At house or work? And why?

Date: 02-25-2011 19:49

At house. Wind.

Date: 02-25-2011 19:52

And it's just our block and the next one. The houses across the street have power.

Date: 02-25-2011 19:52

Oof. Cruel. Maybe a good night for a movie?

Date: 03-12-2011 12:01

Date: 03-12-2011 12:01

Do you remember the days?

Date: 03-12-2011 12:04

Of course. Mmm, condiment sandwich.

Date: 03-24-2011 19:08

Just your mom, calling to say hi. I know Jean is away. Hope you're having fun (but not too much fun.) Love you.

Date: 04-12-2011 11:38

My manager just spoke to me about renewing my contract, he's pushing for full-time.

Date: 04-12-2011 11:40

So proud.

Date: 04-19-2011 21:50

So there is a sale on Marc Jacobs bags for 50% off at Jean's work. And then Jeans gets another 30% off as an employee. So do you think Cameron would at all like a small bag? Don't tell her though, surprise.

Date: 04-19-2011 21:52

Um, Mother's Day is coming..,

Date: 04-19-2011 21:52

Yes, she'd love it.

Date: 04-20-2011 20:16

Which one for Cam?

Date: 04-20-2011 20:16

Date: 04-20-2011 20:16

Date: 04-20-2011 20:19

Does either have a shoulder length strap? She likes shoulder length.

Date: 04-20-2011 22:11

She does KNOW who Marc Jacobs is, right? I just want to make sure she'll actually like it.

Date: 04-20-2011 22:13

I'm sure she does. I can't ask her; she's at a concert. She will treasure whatever she gets from you.

Date: 04-22-2011 16:38

Address or name?

Date: 04-22-2011 16:38

Green Forest

Date: 04-22-2011 16:38

Pull off parkway at Penn Hills exit.

Date: 04-23-2011 20:47

Watching Parks & Recreation. Seems just like The Office. We like it.

Date: 04-23-2011 20:46

Oh, good. You might like Outsourced, too.

Date: 04-23-2011 20:51


Date: 04-25-2011 16:58

Heyyyy. So remember how I said PlayStation Network went down last week? Well the hacker(s) may have stolen all my personal info, possibly including my credit card info.

Date: 04-25-2011 16:59

Call each place and tell them. They'll issue you new cards. Get cash out first!!

Date: 04-25-2011 17:01

It was just the AmEx I believe. But they could have also gotten my password and the security questions and answers.

Date: 04-25-2011 17:01

Oh, so I'll call. You're sure you didn't use another cards?

Date: 04-25-2011 17:02

*any other

Date: 04-25-2011 17:06

Well I can't be sure because the god damn PlayStation Network is still down. I can't login to check. But I'm like 95% sure it was just the AmEx.

Date: 04-25-2011 17:06

Okay. I'll call.

Date: 04-25-2011 18:42

Date: 04-25-2011 21:35

Date: 05-06-2011 16:20

I'll be home in like 10 min.

Date: 05-07-2011 11:33

15 minutes away.

Date: 05-08-2011 20:26

Home safe?

Date: 05-08-2011 20:32

Yes. See you soon!

Date: 05-08-2011 20:33

Love you.

Date: 05-10-2011 17:39

Date: 05-10-2011 17:39

Flowers still beautiful.

Date: 05-10-2011 17:46

Boy is still in bed and sick.

Date: 05-10-2011 17:49

Oh, no. Hot liquids and acetaminophen. Maybe a hot bath, too. Wish I could be there for you.

Date: 05-26-2011 14:08

OmiGOD! Grandma just called and changed her mind. She IS coming June 1 to 6, and therefore will be here next weekend. Will you be able to come next weekend?

Date: 05-26-2011 14:11

Lol, yes.

Date: 05-26-2011 14:11

She's driving me insane.

Date: 06-01-2011 11:20

Date: 06-01-2011 11:20

Front page today.

Date: 06-01-2011 15:29

Think you can help me update my resume based on my linkedin profile?

Date: 06-01-2011 16:25

Sure. Have you heard back?

Date: 06-01-2011 16:27

Yes. Twice now.

Date: 06-01-2011 16:28

Soooo??? Details, please. Location? Would you be an employee?

Date: 06-01-2011 16:29

San Bruno, CA. And yes.

Date: 06-01-2011 16:29

Did they talk $.

Date: 06-01-2011 16:33

No. She just asked if I was cool with relocating, and if I could get her an updated resume.

Date: 06-01-2011 16:33

Does she know you don't have a college degree?

Date: 06-01-2011 16:37

Should I tell her that right now.

Date: 06-01-2011 16:37

No. Just don't tell her you DO have a college degree. Be honest, but wait for her to ask.

Date: 06-01-2011 16:43

I have on my linkedin that I attended UPJ starting in 2006, but I didn't list an graduation date.

Date: 06-01-2011 16:44

Good. No lie.

Date: 06-01-2011 16:48

But the way linkedin displays it, it just says UPJ with 2006 under it. So how should it look on my resume?

Date: 06-01-2011 16:48

I could show 2006-2008

Date: 06-01-2011 16:49

Don't list a degree. Say Computer Science concentration. And, yes, say "2006-2008."

Date: 06-01-2011 17:00

How can I help with the resume?

Date: 06-04-2011 21:05

Are you home safe?

Date: 06-04-2011 21:08


Date: 06-08-2011 11:25

It's the perfect wallet!

Date: 06-17-2011 17:18

So Ansel called as we were getting on the highway, asking where the Thai place was. Lol.

Date: 06-17-2011 22:50

Clarence Clemons died.

Date: 06-17-2011 22:50

So sad : (

Date: 06-29-2011 21:02

Was Tom Hanks on something or what?

Date: 07-03-2011 17:52

Happy 4th! What are you guys doing?

Date: 07-10-2011 19:19

Just got a call from Patty at Visa. She said she passed along my resume and the managers who were hiring would give me a call soon.

Date: 07-10-2011 19:19

Good to hear. I liked her.

Date: 07-10-2011 19:22

I actually had to call her back. Note to self: always answer when you see a 650 area code.

Date: 07-10-2011 19:24

Guess mom's going to be getting herself a new cell phone number.

Date: 07-10-2011 19:26


Date: 07-13-2011 21:27

You can always take the $200 out on Wednesdays. I get paid every week. You can do it this week but this next week I'll be at the beach so I don't get paid and rent will be due. I have about $3,000 in the bank, but I want to be safe.

Date: 07-13-2011 21:27

No prob. You tell the day you'd like or we can skip this month.

Date: 07-13-2011 21:30

Take $200 now.

Date: 07-13-2011 21:30

You sure? We could wait until vacation's over. It's really not a problem.

Date: 07-13-2011 21:32

P.S. How much do I still owe you? I think only have about $900 left on the Barclaycard.

Date: 07-13-2011 21:33

Good job. I believe it was $2200 in total, and you make the first $200 payment last month. It was the computer plus like $1500 on American Express before you stopped using it.

Date: 07-13-2011 21:34

*made, not make

Date: 07-13-2011 21:38

Jesus. Ok take $200 right now. And beginning on the 3rd start taking $200 every Wednesday.

Date: 07-13-2011 21:41

I'm not comfortable doing that. It's too much (I mean unless you force me.) $200/month is fine.

Date: 07-18-2011 09:28

Miss you. How's the beach?

Date: 07-18-2011 23:00

The beach is great. Not great signal though, loved that pic you emailed!

Date: 07-18-2011 23:00

Glad you're having fun. Love you.

Date: 07-20-2011 22:30

Do you remember when we went to see Final Destination together?

Date: 07-21-2011 10:51

Umm, I remember the movie. Why?

Date: 07-21-2011 15:25

I just remember it was sweet we went together. I hate horror movies, but we were doing a mother-son thing and that's what you picked. And now they're advertising Final Destination 5 on TV.

Date: 07-22-2011 21:24

Home safe?

Date: 07-22-2011 21:28

Yup. Jean's sister said I looked as tan as a person who *hadn't* gone to the beach. It's an improvement over them all calling me a vampire ;)

Date: 07-22-2011 21:29

Glad you had a good time. Bet the kitties are glad you're home.

Date: 07-22-2011 21:30

Oh yeah. They've been attention whores since we walked in the door.

Date: 07-25-2011 15:32

So not only did I land that 12 month contract with Winamp, but Amrita was actually able to score me a slight raise. On top of that she said that at the end of this contract there will most likely be a salaried job offered to me and she implied that the base compensation would be around $90k along with all the benefits of being a full-time employee.

Date: 07-25-2011 15:32

Wow! What's Winamp?

Date: 07-25-2011 15:32

Is it still aOL?

Date: 07-25-2011 15:35

It was the iTunes for Window before iTunes. A lot still prefer it over iTunes.

Date: 07-25-2011 15:36

Yes. Same building, just down the hall.

Date: 07-25-2011 15:37

I'm telling Daddy this on the phone. We're both soooo proud!

Date: 07-31-2011 19:26

Did you get to see Ansel?

Date: 07-31-2011 21:19

He's still here!

Can I take your August $200 payment out of your account today? (Miss you in Myrtle Beach!) love, mom.

Date: 08-04-2011 09:15

Yes you may.

Date: 08-08-2011 19:33

Call when you can. I've got the Megabus schedule in front of me.

Date: 08-12-2011 22:20

Send me the link to that Colbert SuperPAC commercial!

Date: 08-12-2011 22:20


Date: 08-12-2011 22:21

Please! :D

Date: 08-12-2011 22:23

Sorry, I'm catching up on Colbert (didn't watch all week) and was "intrigued!"

Date: 08-12-2011 22:22

Check your email. Sent 'em there. You and Jean should see Crazy, Stupid Love. It's wonderful.

Date: 08-12-2011 23:03

Your sister came home at 6 am this morning. You may want to talk to her.

Date: 08-20-2011 10:57

Leaves 2:45 pm

Date: 08-20-2011 10:59


Date: 08-20-2011 15:23


Date: 08-22-2011 09:47

Soooo. Jean and I have 60 days to move out.

Date: 08-22-2011 09:49

Uh oh : (

Date: 08-22-2011 13:54

Earthquake! Holy shit.

Date: 08-22-2011 13:55

What did u feel? Cam felt it too.

Date: 08-22-2011 13:58

Gov says it was a 5.8 magnitude.

Date: 08-22-2011 14:02

Are you all right?

Date: 08-22-2011 14:04

Yeah, just scared the shit out of me.

Date: 08-22-2011 14:03

Was felt here in Lebo. Cam's drawers shook. What happened where you were?

Date: 08-22-2011 14:06

The building was shaking. The lights were shaking. Everyone is outside and they're apparently evacuating DC.

Date: 08-22-2011 14:07

Is Jean okay?

Date: 08-22-2011 14:07

Teri felt it, too.

Date: 08-23-2011 22:47

So since our landlord gave us a 60 day notice to move out, does that mean we can move out, like, this weekend and not pay September rent?

Date: 08-23-2011 22:52

I don't know the answer to that. If you fax me the lease, I can ask someone who would know. Do you have another place? Just don't lose the security deposit. You'll need it for the next place. It's a bummer you have to move. Also, there's a hurricane coming your way this weekend. 60-day notices, earthquakes, leases--it's just not your month.

Date: 08-23-2011 23:05

I forwarded you everything.

Date: 08-23-2011 23:06

They're gonna start showing the house with us still living there... Sucks.

Date: 08-25-2011 10:56

We're coming to Pittsburgh. I've decided.

Date: 08-25-2011 10:56

Okay. Tonight or tomorrow?

Date: 08-25-2011 10:57


Date: 08-25-2011 21:01

Can I borrow a car tonight? Going to see Ansel. Should be home by 10:00.

Date: 08-25-2011 21:12

Sure. Where r u sleeping?

Date: 08-25-2011 21:45

Your house.

Date: 08-26-2011 08:34

Let us know when you're up.

Date: 08-26-2011 09:20

I'm up.

Date: 08-26-2011 09:21

What time do you want to eat? Can Jean join us? Cam's asleep, but she wants to go.

Date: 08-26-2011 09:48

Can we meet you at 10:20 at the Eat'n'Park?

Date: 08-26-2011 09:48

Sure. The one at South Hills Village?

Date: 08-26-2011 09:50


Date: 08-26-2011 09:49

C u then.

Date: 08-26-2011 18:31

Date: 08-26-2011 18:32

Congrats!! Tell her we're very proud.

Date: 08-27-2011 19:02

No damage and power is on.

Date: 08-27-2011 19:01

Oh good. I'm still glad you guys evacuated, though.

Date: 08-27-2011 19:06

A/C is broken...

Date: 08-27-2011 19:05

How did it break?

Date: 08-27-2011 19:07

I dont know. It just doesn't work. I went out back and the fan isn't spinning.

Date: 08-28-2011 16:43

Two questions: does anyone in our family have ADD? Did dad have some problem with his Thyroid? I thought he did but I wasn't sure.

Date: 09-02-2011 23:29

Date: 09-02-2011 23:29

Uh oh. Time to call your sister.

Date: 09-10-2011 19:59

How old were you when you got your first "career" job? Got married? Had me?

Date: 09-10-2011 19:59

20, 21, 26.

Date: 09-10-2011 20:07

Well that doesn't help… Jean is like having a panic attack because she doesn't think she'll amount to anything, ever be able to be independent, or be able to afford a house, before she's infertile. I'm trying to calm her down but she refuses that she'll be okay.

Date: 09-10-2011 20:12

Please tell her I consider her very successful and love her dearly.

Date: 09-13-2011 21:12

Can I deduct the $200 from your account today?

Date: 09-13-2011 21:18


Date: 09-16-2011 12:18

Did you get the email about the stuff that comes out of our new sinks?

Date: 09-20-2011 16:53

What Metro Station is closest to your home? Now, we're not staying at a hotel. We're staying at my friend's house near the Zoo.

Date: 09-28-2011 13:29

Jean went to get blood taken today at 8:00AM and I imagine she took one of her Xanax beforehand. She has the day off from work and she hasn't answered any of my texts or phone calls. I already called the local hospital, she isn't there. What should I do? I'm gonna leave work soon.

Date: 09-29-2011 15:26

How was anniversary dinner? Did you feel twice as in love because you knew she was safe?

Date: 10-03-2011 19:07

Are you all settled from the move? Does the fireplace work?

Date: 10-03-2011 19:31

Yup, all moved in. The cats (especially Sav) love the balcony. They stick their heads out the railings.

Date: 10-03-2011 19:32

Aww. And the fireplace?

Date: 10-03-2011 19:34

Oh, Jean wanted to try it but we don't have a fireplace lighter. I don't know how well a Bic lighter would work.

Date: 10-03-2011 19:36

And did you get an outdoor fireplac? I want to buy it for you.

Date: 10-03-2011 19:38

No, we have not.

Date: 10-05-2011 09:49

Is it okay if I take $200 out of your bank account today?

Date: 10-05-2011 10:18

No, I'm like broke right now.

Date: 10-05-2011 10:44

Np. Should I check back with you next week or next month?

Date: 10-10-2011 12:15

So how difficult would it be to add me onto your insurance again? My insurance sucks, even the most expensive one they offer me. It doesn't cover my inhaler and only seems to cover 30% of other prescriptions like half the time. I also had to go get blood tests and an EKG at the hospital and the bill is like $500 (although, they didn't take my insurance info so I'm sending the bill back with that correction, but even then who knows if it will be covered).

Date: 10-10-2011 12:16

Like, my insurance covered 30% of the cost when I got my script filled at the Giant Pharmacy, but then didn't cover any of it when I got the same script filled at Target Pharmacy today.

Date: 10-10-2011 12:19

Let me give you a call later.

Date: 10-10-2011 16:57

So I found out that I wasn't doing my prescriptions right. I automatically got Aetna's negotiated price, but to get them to cover the 70%, I need to send in a claim form with my receipt and script label. Then they reimburse me.

Date: 10-10-2011 16:58

Ahhh. Excellent.

Date: 10-10-2011 17:00

And I am assuming that the same thing happens for my hospital visit, which sucks. It's like I have to submit a rebate for everything. But it does mean I can get reimbursed for all the medications I've gotten filled for the last year.

Date: 10-12-2011 23:02

Checking eligibility for iPhone upgrade. Can I get last 4 of your SSN and billing password if you have one?

Date: 10-12-2011 23:05

Can you text me the mileage on your car. I need it to renew the registration. Thanks. Miss you!

Date: 10-22-2011 22:33

Date: 10-22-2011 22:48

Yes ma'am.

Look. All your favorites on the front page of USA Today. The article is called, "Nostalgia for the 90s."

Date: 10-27-2011 21:23

It's Daddy's birthday today. Can you call?

Date: 10-27-2011 21:23

Daddy, I mean.

Date: 11-01-2011 15:01

You can take the $200 now.

Date: 11-01-2011 15:00

Will do. Did you get my email today about Thanksgiving?

Date: 11-01-2011 21:40

Sorry to do this again, but could you wait until next Wednesday to take the money out?

Date: 11-01-2011 21:41

Oops. Already ordered the transaction. Happens tomorrow. One solution: use the Amex card for up to $200 in purchases this week, and I'll take $200 out again next Wednesday. Do you still have the card?

Date: 11-01-2011 21:44


Date: 11-01-2011 21:43

I never turned it off. If you'd prefer, I can drop a $200 check into the mail to you, but you'd have to deposit it.

Date: 11-01-2011 21:50

No, it's fine. It's my bad, apparently when I attempted to pay Comcast last month, it didn't go through or something, so when I checked this month is was like $277. And while I have over $2000 in my account it's all been spent on rent, car lease, and the Barclay credit card.

Date: 11-01-2011 21:50

Ah. So you'll just use the Amex for up to $200?

Date: 11-01-2011 21:50

Yup. Thanks!

Date: 11-03-2011 17:09

We're in Chicago. Just heard Ucky Man died.

Date: 11-03-2011 17:15

Date: 11-07-2011 16:43

I've had to call every pharmacy in 15 miles to find one able to fill my script. And even they told me to get it filled ASAP because of how fast they run out. Apparently the FDA has the authority to limit the total amount of the active ingredient the manufactures are allowed to produce in a calendar year. And they miscalculated by more than 6 months. So now there has been a nation-wide shortage since May and they can't resolve this problem until January.

Date: 11-07-2011 16:44

Did you get one?

Date: 11-07-2011 16:47

Get one what? I found a pharmacy that says they're getting a new shipment on Thursday, but that they'd probably be out of stock by the end of that day.

Date: 11-07-2011 16:48


Date: 11-07-2011 16:49

You might be asking yourself, "This seems like an artificially created shortage. Why wouldn't the FDA just change the limit to meet demand?"

And they'd whisper back, "Because fuck you, that's why."

Date: 11-07-2011 16:51


Date: 11-07-2011 16:54

And the manufactures don't mind, they're actually making huge profits since they've simply doubled or even tripled the cost of the drug to pharmacies. I so glad the FDA is there to protect us from access to medicine.

Date: 11-15-2011 10:23

Miss you, my baby boy. Is today a good day for a $200 withdrawal? Also, can I convince you to come to Chicago with us for a day or two after Christmas? We can fly you back to DC.

Date: 11-15-2011 16:47

Take the $200 out. I don't think I can do Chicago though.

Date: 11-15-2011 16:47

Understand. Not even if we drive you up Sunday and fly you back Tuesday morning? Think about it.

Date: 11-16-2011 14:50

Plates, dog, Xmas, tablecloth, wine.

Date: 11-16-2011 14:54

Table is 36 x 66 so table cloth should be bigger, something like 48 x 80 or thereabouts.

Date: 11-23-2011 11:32

If you're here by noon we will be ready.

Date: 11-23-2011 11:44

Call me if you can't get get through the gate.

Date: 11-23-2011 11:48

We just checked into hotel. Cam is dressing. We'll be there between 12:15 and 12:30.

Date: 11-24-2011 10:11

Are you up?

Date: 11-24-2011 10:57

Boy? We're heading over. Will knock at your door.

Date: 11-24-2011 17:51

I'm going to pick up the pizza around 6:00. It should only take me about 10-15 minutes to get home.

Date: 11-24-2011 17:53

We'll be there!

Date: 11-24-2011 18:17

Still waiting on the pizza, sorry.

Date: 11-24-2011 18:19

No worries. We're watching the lobster video.

Date: 11-24-2011 18:30

Looks like they lost my order or something. I got my pizza, but n

Date: 11-24-2011 18:30

Now they're making me fresh garlic knots since the ones they gave me are now cold.

Date: 11-24-2011 18:29

No problem at all. Thank you.

Date: 11-25-2011 11:40

They're here.

Date: 11-25-2011 11:40

On our way.

Date: 12-02-2011 15:19

Call when you get a chance.

Date: 12-10-2011 09:41

Forgot to mention, there was some stupid fraud alert on my bank card when I went to fill my prescription so I ended up using the Amex. I owe you another $200.

Date: 12-10-2011 10:25

NP. Can I take the presription $200 out of your account now?

Date: 12-10-2011 14:56


Date: 12-11-2011 13:16

Wow, fucking Facebook apparently decided to add a sub-directory under 'Messages' called 'Other'. And guess what, not only does it automatically decided which messages should go in there, but if a new message does go there, you get NO notification. So Pete responded to me a week ago but I didn't know about it until today!

Date: 12-11-2011 13:21

That sucks!

Sooo cute! So they've admitted the new one into the club?

Date: 12-12-2011 12:12

Yeah. Scoot and Lucy have been cool with each other for a while now, but Sav seems to have gotten used to her now. They were just playfully wrestling this morning.

Date: 12-14-2011 08:41

Will you text me your odometer reading in the next hour? Mailing out your registration renewal.

Can you bring your camera with portrait lens at 5?

Date: 12-22-2011 12:48

You need light. It doesn't matter how good my camera is, we need daylight.

Date: 12-22-2011 12:50

I can bring it, but seriously it will be much better like tomorrow at brunch.

Date: 12-22-2011 12:54

Doing my author shot tomorrow is fine. But CITY PAPER needs a shot of me and another author. She'll drop by our house sometime after 5. It'll take 5 mins. Anything will do. You'll get a photo credit.

Date: 12-22-2011 12:55

CITY PAPER is doing a story on us.

Date: 12-22-2011 16:49

We're in traffic. May be 5 min late.

Morning, sweetie. Don't forget to feed the cats before you leave today. We had such a nice time with you and Jean.

Fed the cats. We had a wonderful time too.

Date: 01-06-2012 08:50

If you're awake, we're at Tom's now. Also, in case you didn't get Teri a gift, I have a pair of emerald earrings you, Jean and Cam can give her. Cam has a card. When you get to our house, sign it discreetly.

Date: 01-06-2012 10:51

I'm in Johnstown. When should I be home? I can come now.

Date: 01-06-2012 10:54

No, no. 5:00 at our house. Did Jean come to Pgh too?

No ;(

Do you guys watch New Girl? It's very funny. Boy funny, too. Watch tonight's episode if you can find it somewhere.  XXOO, Mom

Date: 01-30-2012 22:33

Yeah, we watch it. I liked the black guy from season 1 more—maybe it's just because they changed the actor without warning.

Date: 01-30-2012 22:36

I'm pretty sure he was only in one show. This is Season One.

Date: 01-30-2012 22:36

Funny show tonight.

Date: 01-30-2012 22:35

Oh, yeah. The first episode.

Date: 01-30-2012 22:39

Who thought that was okay? To change a main character on the SECOND episode?!

Date: 01-30-2012 22:40

Pilots are shot like a year in advance. I believe I read the actor got another series in the meantime, before they knew New Girl was going to be "green lighted".

Date: 01-30-2012 22:41

We'll watch it. You should watch the second episode of that show I told dad about yesterday. It was better than the pilot, I thought.

Date: 01-30-2012 22:42

Yep. "Happy Endings." I just looked it up.

Date: 01-30-2012 22:42

We will. We liked Party Down. That was funny.

---------------------------------------Text Messages----------------------------------

The second episode of Party Down.

Right. We'll watch them all. It was only on one season, I guess.

Date: 01-30-2012 22:50

I thought there were two on Netflix.

Date: 02-07-2012 12:24

I'll be taking the money out of your account today unless I hear otherwise.

Jean went to Dollar Bank (her bank for years, as well as her parents’) to consolidate her student loans. Their advice: "Google student load consolidation."

Closing out her account today. And they wonder why local bank are failing: because they fucking deserve to.

Date: 03-12-2012 11:15

Poor Jean. She's smart to consolidate, though.

Date: 03-12-2012 11:17

And smart to fucking drop Dollar Bank. I'd rather support BofA, because I'd bet they'd give her a loan. Or at least better advice.

What's up with the Mass Effect 3 ending? Why is everyone so upset?

Date: 03-21-2012 13:29

Lol, I don't know. I think they kill off the character you play as. And I think people were upset that there were only 3 possible endings, unlike their last one which had many different endings depending on what you did during the game.

Date: 03-21-2012 13:39

Ah. Thank you for translating. Cameron would like you to come up for her birthday. Will Jean be in NYC or Alexandria on April 21/22, do you know?

Today is Teri's birthday. Please take a moment if you would to send her a note, telling her you're looking forward to seeing her in June. Thank you. Love, Mom

Date: 04-01-2012 15:06

Date: 04-01-2012 18:24

Even better:

Date: 04-01-2012 22:31

I missed your call. What's up?

Date: 04-01-2012 22:35

Pressed it by accident, was calling Jean ;) sorry

Date: 04-01-2012 22:35

I'm glad I rank up next to her on your important contact list.

Date: 04-02-2012 17:43

This is Cameron. I had to explain that picture and the comment afterward in complete detail to mom. 


Date: 04-02-2012 19:25

Not fair! I just didn't know Wordsmith was a game. I'm very proud. You'll always be a god to me--one of those pain-in-the-ass ones.

Date: 04-02-2012 19:30

I wish that was me! No, I just found this image and thought it was quite amazing.

Date: 04-06-2012 16:45

Yay! Jean gets to come home on Monday now!

Date: 04-06-2012 17:59

Very nice! Will you have the place nice for her? Reasonably nice?

Date: 04-06-2012 18:00

That's the best part! I will have the weekend to clean up, which I was planning to do anyway, but now she'll actually get to see it clean.

Date: 04-06-2012 18:01


Date: 04-06-2012 18:08

Guess what's going in up the hill from Taco Bell on Cochran, where Calico Corners used to be? A Chipotle!

Date: 04-06-2012 18:11

Oooo! Finally!

Date: 04-12-2012 10:56

I think you're bringing Pittsburgh with you. It's a wintery 52° out right now.

Date: 04-12-2012 14:14

Where are you two at?

Date: 04-12-2012 14:18

we're near the zoo trying on indian clothing

Date: 04-12-2012 14:20

As in Indian (from India) clothing or Native American clothing? 

Date: 04-12-2012 14:20

And why?

Date: 04-12-2012 14:56

We'll be there in ten minutes

Date: 04-12-2012 15:44

You can come over. I'm like 5 min away.

Date: 04-12-2012 15:45

She's buying candy, sooooo...we'll be there soon

Date: 04-14-2012 10:41

Date: 04-18-2012 12:31

Which one do you want for your birthday?

Date: 04-18-2012 12:42

Lol, I need some underwear.

Date: 04-21-2012 13:47

Don't forget to contact Cam. It's her birthday.

Date: 04-25-2012 20:23

Do you watch "The Middle"? There's a great episode on tonight you should watch tomorrow.

Date: 04-25-2012 21:36

As in "Malcolm in…"?

Date: 04-25-2012 21:37

No. The show about the family with three kids that live in Indiana. It's called The Middle. Watch last night's episode, and if you like it, there are three seasons of it. It's very funny and very true. Daddy and I love it.

Date: 05-03-2012 19:27

Did you watch last week's Middle episode?

Date: 05-03-2012 19:32

We're watching the first episode of The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret on Netflix. It's hilarious!

Date: 05-11-2012 16:41

Just got to Jean's place. We're gonna come over to say hi and possibly steal one of your cars ;) are you still going to be home in like 15 min?

Date: 05-11-2012 16:41

Yes and yes.

Date: 05-11-2012 16:42

We leave at 5:15, though.

Date: 05-11-2012 17:00

Mt. Lebanon really needs less residential roads, and more real roads for cars to get places.

Date: 05-12-2012 09:32

Did you guys already do breakfast?

Date: 05-12-2012 09:31

No. Where do you want to go and when?

Date: 05-12-2012 09:39

I'm sure they serve something I'll enjoy wherever we go. It will probably take me until at least 10:00. Also, we're meeting AT the melting pot at 4:00, correct?

Date: 05-12-2012 09:40

We can meet there. We were talking about family pictures, which would suggest we meet at 3 at the house, but we can do pictures in June instead. Okay, see you at 10. Is Jean coming to breakfast?

Date: 05-12-2012 09:43

No, she's doing family stuff, too. I can do pictures at 3:00, but again, sans Jean. And let's say 10:30, just to be safe.

Date: 05-13-2012 10:28

Happy Mother's Day!

Date: 05-13-2012 10:30

Love you. So, so nice to see you and spend time with you. Are you with Daddy and Can?

Date: 05-13-2012 10:30

On my way over there. Just woke up like 10 minutes ago.

Date: 05-19-2012 10:27

Date: 05-20-2012 14:48

Okay, well jean sounds like she caught a cold so we might just do takeout for dinner.

Date: 05-20-2012 14:48

Sounds nice.

Date: 05-20-2012 21:52

Home safe. How's Jean?

Date: 05-20-2012 22:08

Still coughing and sounds more nasally.

Date: 05-20-2012 22:08


Date: 05-20-2012 22:12

No, she got up to eat, shower, and take more medicine. Going to get cough drops now.

Date: 05-20-2012 22:12

I am going that is.

Date: 05-22-2012 18:04

How's Jean today?

Date: 05-22-2012 18:06

She went to work (against my will) but was home by 2:30. She's still sick, but it seems like her fever went away.

Date: 05-22-2012 18:10

Give her a hug for me.

Date: 05-24-2012 08:47

Date: 05-24-2012 08:47

Today is Peter's birthday (and Yeimi's birthday.) You might want to drop him a line.

Date: 06-01-2012 18:24

What time should I be there for dinner? And are we eating dinner at the house or going out?

Date: 06-01-2012 18:29

Cookout at the house beginning at 6. Teri doesn't arrive till Monday, but Grandma's here now and Di and Nick arrive tomorrow.

Date: 06-03-2012 10:15

We're catching a trolley to the Arts Festival downtown at 11:30. Back around 4:30. We'll probably eat leftovers tonight around 7:30 with more hot dogs and hamburgers on the grill.

Date: 06-03-2012 10:17

Also frittata in pan on stove if you're hungry. It's ham, spinach and cheese.

Date: 06-03-2012 15:48

Will you join us?

Date: 06-03-2012 15:50

I don't have a ride until Jean comes back. We'll come and get desert or coffee.

Date: 06-03-2012 15:52

Plus I'm trying to get to see Cam. I want to at least give her my card and get a hug before we go.

Date: 06-03-2012 17:03

We're leaving Thai restaurant and heading home.

Date: 06-03-2012 21:17

Are you home safely?

This is cameron, daddy has my ohone to try and fix the wifi so you can actually facetime

Date: 06-04-2012 18:47

Date: 06-13-2012 14:37

Do u want me to call?

Go straight to Center, just to be safe. I mean, I'm just saying...

Date: 06-13-2012 14:40

I'm like 15-20 min away.

Date: 06-13-2012 16:11

So, I just waited 20 minutes in the Photo Room line. When I finally got to go in, they said I was in the wrong line and needed together a photo card from the other line… they close in 4 minutes.

Date: 06-13-2012 16:11

needed to get a photo card*

Happy birthday, Boy. We'll celebrate on Saturday.

Date: 06-14-2012 21:50

Hey, just wanted to let you know that we have a friend coming to stay with us Saturday night (~7:30PM) through Monday. Both Jean and I will be at dinner, but it will probably just be me for breakfast/brunch.

Date: 06-14-2012 21:51

Okay. You are welcome to invite your friend to dinner and/or breakfast if you'd like.

Date: 06-15-2012 17:45

Did you run into any construction on the Turnpike?

Date: 06-15-2012 17:47

I don't remember there being any.

Date: 06-16-2012 14:03

We're just eating now and while I still think we'll see you around 5 or 5:30, let's plan on a late dinner, you know, 7:30 or so.

Date: 06-16-2012 14:08

Friend will probably be arriving around 7:30-8:00. Did you have anything in mind for dinner?

Date: 06-16-2012 14:16

You pick. Your birthday. Your friend is invited, if you want.

Date: 06-16-2012 14:59

Chipotle? (Joke)

Date: 06-16-2012 15:01

I'm happy with Clyde's (only if no one mentions my birthday).

Date: 06-16-2012 15:01

Fair enough. Can you make a reservation for 7:30?

Date: 06-16-2012 15:01

You need a reservation?

Date: 06-16-2012 15:02

Probably on Sat.

Date: 06-16-2012 15:39

Just FYI, I am having one of those migraine "auras" right now. Most of the time they go away and I don't get any other symptoms.

Date: 06-16-2012 15:42

Crossing my fingers.

Date: 06-16-2012 17:11

What time will you arrive?

Date: 06-16-2012 17:10

5:30-5:45. How are you?

Date: 06-16-2012 17:13

Aura is gone. Feeling okay. Oh, and Jean's friend isn't coming apparently.

Date: 06-16-2012 17:13

Date: 06-25-2012 11:30

She leaves today, getting back to Pittsburgh around 11:30PM. Then she drives straight to work from Pittsburgh the next morning. And I think she really enjoyed it, but it was the hottest weekend in CO in 50+ years and there were fires all over.

It's a 36 month lease that we signed on December 10th 2009. I have tons of time left on my lease. Remind me again in November.

It's a 36 month lease that we signed on December 10th 2009. I have tons of time left on my lease. Remind me again in November.

Date: 06-29-2012 14:13

I talked to Honda Financial. All they need is a photo of the part of the lease agreement that says 36 months. Can you snap a pic and email that to me today? 

Date: 06-29-2012 15:09

Sure. I'm assuming that would be with that packet they gave me in my car. Why? Do they not have a copy or was my lease not 36 months?

Date: 06-29-2012 15:11

They're saying your lease ended June 11, 2012. 30 months. I thought it was 36 months, too. Can you check?

Date: 06-29-2012 15:22

Date: 06-29-2012 15:22

Date: 06-29-2012 15:22

I'm looking for something I signed but can't find it.

Date: 06-29-2012 15:27

Well, Honda Financial is requesting a copy of the original paperwork. They'll have it on Tuesday. If it says 30 months, not 36, would you be prepared to go to Oursmann Honda next Thu, Fri or Sat. Daddy will probably have to meet you there. The payoff is like $12500, which you can roll into a loan--assuming you intend to buy it.

Date: 06-29-2012 15:29

I swear the only number I ever heard was 36 months. Why 30?

Date: 06-29-2012 15:30

Depends on the number of years on the loan, but it should be less than that.

Date: 06-29-2012 15:30

I remember 36 too. We'll find out on Tuesday, I guess.

It's so hot. And there's nothing to do. Only 1 out of every 10 blocks even has working traffic lights. Restaurants and shops are closed. Also, did I mention how hot it is?

Date: 06-30-2012 16:56

Keep your car gassed up. You can sleep in it.

Date: 06-30-2012 16:57

Or come to Pittsburgh. We're not home.

Date: 06-30-2012 21:34


Date: 06-30-2012 21:38

Date: 06-30-2012 21:38

Not a light. (Picture from our balcony)

Date: 06-30-2012 23:20

And he said, "Let there be A/C!" And there was A/C.

Date: 06-30-2012 23:19

Yay! Lights, too?

Date: 06-30-2012 23:22

Yea yea, light n shit. But fucking A/C! Feels like I won the Super Bowl! …I'm just as sweaty anyway.

Date: 07-03-2012 14:29

Did you hear anything about my car?

Date: 07-04-2012 19:50

Will you see fireworks tonight?

Date: 07-04-2012 19:55

I hope! So long as they get above the tree line.

Date: 07-04-2012 20:38


Date: 07-04-2012 20:38

View from our new condo.

Date: 07-04-2012 21:38

Wow!! I'm so jealous.

Date: 07-04-2012 21:38

We'll let you stay for free.

Date: 07-04-2012 22:03


Date: 07-04-2012 22:03

Fireworks for my boy.

Date: 07-05-2012 16:58

When is your car appointment?

Date: 07-05-2012 17:23

Date: 07-05-2012 17:23

A hard-won award. I remember I was so, so proud.

Date: 07-05-2012 18:13

Date: 07-05-2012 18:13

New counters.

Date: 07-05-2012 18:19

Got her VM. I left my name, number, and asked for an appointment on Sunday.

Date: 07-05-2012 18:27

She was on vacation today, I think, but back on Friday. Make sure you answer incoming calls!

Date: 07-06-2012 18:00

Did you get an appointment?

Date: 07-06-2012 18:02

Tomorrow afternoon after Jean gets home.

Date: 07-06-2012 18:03

Super. Did Jean have fun? Which beach was she at? You're lucky you're not here. Scott and Debbie and Brad are coming over for dinner. Sigh...

Date: 07-06-2012 21:02

Well, we're having our Federal Reserve discussion now. I'm hading in the kitchen.

Date: 07-06-2012 21:12

This should put dad in the perfect mood to discuss car things tomorrow.

Date: 07-06-2012 21:16

Date: 07-07-2012 13:38

En route to Honda.

Date: 07-07-2012 13:44

Do I have the upper hand if I'm going to buy it? As in would they fix my car up?

Date: 07-07-2012 13:45


Date: 07-07-2012 14:18

They're telling me it would cost about the same to buy my car as it would to buy a new one? Should I just get the new one?

Date: 07-07-2012 14:18

It's like $13,000+$3,000(to pass inspection) for my current car.

Date: 07-07-2012 14:20

And it's like $18,000 for the new one. Are they trying to scam me or is it actually a smart idea to get the newer one?

Date: 07-07-2012 14:42

Date: 07-07-2012 14:42

That's for $1000 down for the new car. It would be $264/mo for the old car + $3,000 for inspection.

Date: 07-07-2012 14:44

It's only $300 for no money down.

Date: 07-07-2012 14:50

72 months

Date: 07-07-2012 14:50

Too many. Do 60.

Date: 07-07-2012 14:50

It's 325 for 66 months

Date: 07-07-2012 14:51


Date: 07-07-2012 14:52


Date: 07-07-2012 14:52

Honda is advertising 0.9% interest for 24-60 month contracts. Ask about that.

Date: 07-07-2012 14:52

On their website.

Date: 07-07-2012 14:52

No go, not enough credit.

Date: 07-07-2012 14:54


Date: 07-07-2012 14:54

Gap insurance??

Date: 07-07-2012 14:54


Date: 07-07-2012 14:55

Is that an extended warranty?

Date: 07-07-2012 14:54

Kind of

Date: 07-07-2012 14:54

It's $20/mo

Date: 07-07-2012 14:56

What does it cover?

Date: 07-07-2012 14:54

I don't think I can do the 60 month option.

Date: 07-07-2012 14:56

Can you pay us that much less?

Date: 07-07-2012 14:56

You know, that $300/month.

Date: 07-07-2012 14:57

It covers the difference from what insurance doesn't.

Date: 07-07-2012 14:57

Any key exclusions? It sounds like a good idea.

Date: 07-07-2012 14:57

Yes. I can pay $300/mo

Date: 07-07-2012 14:58

No, I mean pay 350 for car and pay us 200 instead

Date: 07-07-2012 14:58

And get gap

Date: 07-07-2012 14:57

It's like $320/mo for the gap insurance and the 72 month loan.

Date: 07-07-2012 14:59

Sounds good. But we don't mind if you

Date: 07-07-2012 14:59

So get the 60 month loan and gap insurance and you're gonna help me pay?

Date: 07-07-2012 14:59

Or loan me money that I pay back slower.

Date: 07-07-2012 14:59

Pay us less to pay more for the car loan.

Date: 07-07-2012 15:18

Calling the car insurance company, don't know what I'm doing.

Date: 07-07-2012 15:19

Do you need the number?

Date: 07-07-2012 15:20

No, I'm on hold now.

Date: 07-07-2012 16:28

Date: 07-07-2012 16:28

Done and done.

Date: 07-07-2012 16:29

Well done!

Date: 07-07-2012 16:43

I have a few papers for dad to sign, and the new plates should be sent to your place.

Date: 07-07-2012 16:44

And you have to register car in PA, right? And pay like $1000 in sales tax?

Date: 07-07-2012 16:52

I think it was all rolled into the loan.

Date: 07-07-2012 16:53

Hm. Better scan that paperwork to confirm you've paid sales tax to PA. That would be pretty cool.

Date: 07-21-2012 13:38

Do you still happen to have my social security card?

Date: 07-21-2012 17:42

What do you need your ss card for?

Date: 07-21-2012 17:45

Are you there now?

Date: 07-27-2012 20:33

We're at 330 right now.

Date: 07-27-2012 20:34

But we're ready to go when you get here.

Date: 07-27-2012 20:35

We're watchingthe Olympics Opening Ceremony.

Date: 07-27-2012 20:59

I'm gonna come over soon. I'm dropping Jean off at her friend's house.

Date: 07-28-2012 06:30

Are you awake? Dud you just leave?

Date: 07-28-2012 13:33


Date: 07-28-2012 13:33

With ansel

Date: 07-28-2012 13:34

Oh, good. Say hi. Don't forget Judy at 2:30. It's $75. Do you have cash? We can pay you back. Our treat.

Date: 07-28-2012 13:55

Do you need cash?

Date: 07-28-2012 13:57


Date: 07-28-2012 13:56

Okay. Tell Judy I said hello.

Date: 07-28-2012 16:44

Where r u? Will we c u 2nite?

Date: 07-28-2012 16:52

Yeah. Dropping off jean soon, then seeing Ansel. I was at the house all morning.

Date: 07-28-2012 16:54

Awww. You should have called. We were at Grandview.

Date: 07-28-2012 16:54

Haha! Well I'm gonna try to get Ansel to go up there.

Date: 07-28-2012 16:55

So I think you're saying we won't see you for dinner, right?

Date: 07-28-2012 16:57

I'm making meatloaf and mashed potatoes. Dinner at 6:30. You and Ansel joining us?

Date: 07-28-2012 16:58

Dinner at 330 Atlanta.

Date: 07-28-2012 17:00

The House = 330 Atlanta.
The Condo = 1000 Grandview.

Date: 07-28-2012 17:01

And dinner? Will I possibly be getting an answer on that?

Date: 07-28-2012 17:02

I'll see if Ansel will go. I will be there though ;)

Date: 07-28-2012 17:13

PS I told Ansel that I had to do a "Family thing" when I left at 2:00PM.

Date: 07-28-2012 17:16

Got it. How did family thing go?

Date: 07-28-2012 21:01

We're done at Ikea. Are you going to condo or should we go home?

Date: 07-28-2012 21:01

Go home. We're still playing.

Date: 07-28-2012 23:18

Yeah, but it took 6 hours.

Date: 07-29-2012 21:53

What the what??

Date: 07-29-2012 21:53

There was a boat on the highway. We were just stopped on the highway for at least 45 minutes.

Date: 07-29-2012 21:55

Doesn't beat our record. We were stopped for two hours outside Somerset last year. Totally stopped.

I was a head of the game; knew jewelry was the way to a woman's heart before I was 10. ;)

It rained every day. Very European.

Date: 08-31-2012 14:08

So I haven't been able to hear out of my right ear for the past two days. It got significantly worse today. Ear infection?

Date: 08-31-2012 14:08

Btw, I'm already at the doctor's office.

---------------------------------------Text Messages----------------------------------

Date: 08-31-2012 14:15

Infection, I bet, unless you got hit on the head or ear hard enough to burst your eardrum (which burst at least once or twice in your toddler years.) Tell me what happens.


Date: 08-31-2012 14:20

I went to sleep on Wednesday fine and when I woke up Thursday morning and it just felt like I had gotten water in my ear. Last night I tried laying down on my right side with a heating pad on the pillow and now it just feels like there's even more water (or whatever) in my ear.

Date: 08-31-2012 14:23

Yep. Infection.

Date: 08-31-2012 14:25

All of my childhood sicknesses are coming back to haunt me. First asthma, now this.

Just calling to check your hearing. No need to call back.

Much better. They got a ball of wax out of my ear that was about the size of a nickel. Everything got much louder and clearer after.

Seriously, do you use Q-tips? I know Daddy has some wicked wax.

Date: 08-31-2012 23:46

No q-tips until last night when I used about 30 of them.

Date: 08-31-2012 23:48

I use a Q-tip after every shower or bath (don't like the feeling of wetness in my ears,) but Daddy only uses one about once a month or maybe once a quarter.

4882. I'm not sure you qualify for a new iPhone yet, do you?

Date: 09-12-2012 19:19

I didn't last year either.

Date: 09-12-2012 19:19

You just want to be the only one with a fancy metal iPhone, dontcha??

Date: 09-12-2012 19:21

Also, I do qualify apparently.

Date: 09-12-2012 19:44

Remember, you and I switched qualifying time when you got your last phone. I hope we both qualify for a free one, though. I know I do.

Date: 09-12-2012 19:55

Ahhhhh! That was it. But I thought we went through a long process to make sure that your number would still qualify this time.

Date: 09-12-2012 19:56

Check my number--the one you used to qualify--and see.

Date: 09-12-2012 19:56

You didn't pre-order?

Date: 09-21-2012 10:57

I did. But I won't get it fir another week. Not same day anymore : (

Date: 09-21-2012 10:57

Plus, I'm in San Antonio.

Date: 09-21-2012 10:58

Have you talked to your sister? She's a college student now, you know.

Date: 09-21-2012 11:00

Until she has an 8:00AM class I'm not counting her as a college freshman.

Date: 09-21-2012 11:01

: )

Date: 09-22-2012 12:18

Date: 09-22-2012 12:18

Potential Xmas gift?

Date: 09-22-2012 15:07


Date: 09-22-2012 15:07

Duck at restaurant poking my hip so I'll give him a chip.

Date: 09-23-2012 14:23

Save the day of Sunday, Oct 14. Daddy and I will be in town, and we'd like to have dinner with you guys. K?

Date: 09-27-2012 14:07

All better.

Date: 09-28-2012 15:33

Date: 09-28-2012 15:33

Do you guys have any interest in this mantle clock? Jim gave it to us, but it totally doesn't fit our decor now. It's nice. It's Seiko.

Date: 09-30-2012 10:52

Date: 10-01-2012 08:48

Does your phone work?

Date: 10-01-2012 10:35


Date: 10-01-2012 10:55

Thank goodness. Was whatever happened connected to last week's SIM card snafu?

Date: 10-01-2012 10:57

No, it affected a number of people on Apple's iOS developer program. We had access to the iOS 6 beta, and they didn't send out the release version of iOS 6, so all the older beta versions just got "shut off" last night.

Date: 10-01-2012 11:01

Fun. Well, I'm sorry it happened, but I'm relieved it wasn't my fault. Looking forward to seeing you soon.

Separately, would you think about coming home for Daddy's birthday (weekend of October 27/28)? Teri will be in town. Take Friday off if you can. Dinner will likely be Friday evening (I have tickets to see Springsteen Sat night.)

Date: 10-10-2012 18:11

So my debit card has stopped working (ordered new one). I'll have a blank check for the Amex charges when you come down.

Date: 10-10-2012 20:07

Okay. Thanks.

Date: 10-11-2012 20:23

So did that Modern Family episode make you cry or what?

Date: 10-11-2012 21:35

I didn't watch it (out to dinner with Diane and Nick.) But if you think I'll cry, I'm sure I will. What was it about?

Date: 10-11-2012 21:38

Dropping daughter off at college.

Date: 10-11-2012 21:41


Date: 10-11-2012 22:51

Did you watch the debate? Fabulous!

Date: 10-11-2012 22:52

Who won????

Date: 10-11-2012 22:52

Are you joking? Biden CREAMED Ryan.

Date: 10-12-2012 17:47

What's your new address again?

Date: 10-12-2012 17:50

1000 Grandview Avenue, #701, Pittsburgh, PA. 15211

Date: 10-12-2012 17:55

Thanks! And are you guys coming down tomorrow or Sunday?

Date: 10-12-2012 17:57

Sunday. We should be there in the late afternoon. With Socks. We're staying at the Hilton Mark Center and leaving Monday morning. Really looking forward to seeing you.

Date: 10-13-2012 19:25

We just watched the Modern Family episode. II didn't think I was going to cry, and then the part at the very end came, and I cried and cried.

Date: 10-14-2012 12:30


Date: 10-14-2012 12:45

4:30. Is that okay?

Date: 10-14-2012 12:44


Date: 10-14-2012 14:27

We're probably going to be later. 5:30.

Date: 10-16-2012 22:19

I think the benghazi thing is where the president won the debate. Should have just dropped the mic and walked off.

Date: 10-16-2012 22:19

Very powerful. You know, your sister is tweeting the debate.

Date: 10-16-2012 22:28

She posted like, one thing about the debate.

Date: 10-16-2012 22:29

I know. But still. #proudmom

Date: 10-16-2012 22:29

Daddy's too nervous to watch. He's hiding in the bedroom.

How in the name of God does one get the real 3D map of San Francisco on the iPhone--the one they show in every commercial

Date: 10-18-2012 21:11

Date: 10-18-2012 21:11

Like this.

Date: 10-19-2012 07:41

Oh. I guess I was just trying the wrong city. Thanks, boy.

Date: 10-19-2012 20:03

When are you in? Breakfast tomorrow? We have a bed if you need one.

Date: 10-19-2012 20:13

I'm coming home next weekend since Teri will be there. Sorry!

Date: 10-19-2012 20:19

Cool! Can you be there by 8:30 on Fri for birthday dinner?

Date: 10-20-2012 20:49

Do you use the Flipbook app? It's really cool.

Date: 10-20-2012 20:52

What's Flipbook?

Date: 10-20-2012 20:53

Download it. And make sure you pick Design as one of your categories.

Date: 10-20-2012 20:53

Oh, Jean got an iPhone today! But, against my wishes, she got the 4S because the wait to get a 5 is two months.

Date: 10-20-2012 20:54

Against your wishes. What are you? Her dad?

Date: 10-20-2012 20:54


Date: 10-20-2012 20:55

Tell her congrats. I know she loved the iTouch you got her.

Date: 10-20-2012 20:55

No, I didn't even know she was getting one until she called me from it. Reminds me of someone…

Date: 10-20-2012 20:56

But try Flipbook. I think you'll really admire how the navigation is designed. Plus, the idea is very creative.

Date: 10-20-2012 20:57

The only reason I wanted her to get the 5 was so we could just switch phone. (I was going to pay for the 5, obviously.)

Date: 10-20-2012 20:57

Smart woman.

Date: 10-20-2012 20:59

Oh, boy. It's Flipboard, not Flipbook. (And this is why my kids don't think I'm cool.)

Date: 10-20-2012 20:59

Lol, well Flipbook is pretty cool, too.

Date: 10-21-2012 17:10

Did you try out Flipboard?

Date: 10-22-2012 12:53

Just got off the phone with my manager… he asked how I felt about full-time employment :D

Date: 10-22-2012 12:55

Oh, Wyatt!!! How wonderful!!

Date: 10-22-2012 13:12

So, since he doesn't know what Tek Systems is paying me, I will actually have to offer them a number for my salary.

Date: 10-22-2012 13:12

He only knows what Aol is paying Tek Systems.

Date: 10-22-2012 13:14

I'm sure he can guess what they're paying you, but that should only be one part of his calculation. Do you know what he's paying Tek?

Date: 10-22-2012 13:14

No idea.

Date: 10-22-2012 13:36

I'dassume 20 Percent more than you're getting paid. Which would probably be a good place for you to start.

Date: 10-22-2012 13:38

But I'm a contractor, so shouldn't I expect to be getting more as a contractor than I would be as a full-time employee.

Date: 10-22-2012 13:42

I wouldn't assume that. Ask Your Tek boss what he's billing you out at. If he's nice you should tell you.

Date: 10-22-2012 14:06

But you should expect a raise. You've worked hard.

Date: 10-22-2012 16:05

You realize that I just basically got a raise less than 3 months ago. I went from $81,700/yr to $90,000/yr. And remember, that's without benefits that I'd get as an employee.

Date: 10-22-2012 16:09

I think benefits--especially 401(k)s with an employer match--are critical, so, yes, I'd place a high value on that. What's the market value of someone like you with 5 years of experience (or is it 4 1/2)?

Date: 10-22-2012 21:59

Can we get Candy back?

Date: 10-22-2012 22:00

Or Martha. Old white guys. Ick.

Date: 10-22-2012 22:01

I liked Martha better. It could just be because of that terrible name. Candy.

Date: 10-23-2012 18:21

I'll be there Friday afternoon. Doubt I will stay through Sunday though.

Date: 10-23-2012 18:24

No prob. Friday night is the big night. Yay!

Date: 10-26-2012 12:34

On my way. Do you have a place for me to sleep?

Date: 10-26-2012 12:38

Yes. if you don't mind you can sleep on the couch or a blowup bed

Date: 10-26-2012 14:32

What is your ETA?

Date: 10-26-2012 14:35

I'm 5 min away from Breezewood.

Date: 10-26-2012 14:37

Can't wait to see you!

Date: 10-26-2012 16:35

Stupid question, but you know we're at 1000 Grandview Avenue, right?

Date: 10-26-2012 16:36

1000 Grandview Ave.loc.vcf

Date: 10-26-2012 16:48

They should have to send tax refunds for every time they close access to bridges. And I should be given the home number to the asshat who made the decision to do the road work NOT between the hours of 1AM and 5AM.

Date: 10-26-2012 16:48


Date: 10-26-2012 16:50

I wouldn't agree to torturing terrorist, but who ever made that call deserves it.

Date: 10-26-2012 16:51

Park in the visitors lot.

Date: 10-26-2012 16:52

Then txt. We'll run up.

Date: 10-27-2012 09:47

Dumbest shower ever.

Date: 10-27-2012 10:05

Remember my RITA, please!

Date: 10-27-2012 10:06

By the door. Still can't get Cam out of bed. I showered.

Date: 10-29-2012 10:17

How's Washington DC?

Date: 10-29-2012 10:19

Light rain.

Date: 10-29-2012 10:31

Did they cancel your work?

Date: 10-29-2012 10:31

Csm's classes were canceled. She caught the last Megabus back to Philly before they canceled them all.

Date: 10-29-2012 10:30

Yeah, kinda. My manager says he's working from home.

Date: 10-29-2012 10:33

Keep your phone and PC charged. And if can, fill your car with gas.

Date: 10-29-2012 10:32

Jesus, do you really think its gonna be that bad?

Date: 10-29-2012 10:34

I hope not. But you'll be grateful to have a full tank if it is.

Date: 10-29-2012 10:36

If you lose power, if you could just text me a status once or twice a day to let me know your status, I'd be grateful. Did Zjesn have to go to work?

Date: 10-29-2012 14:50

Date: 10-29-2012 18:00

We still have power, how about you?

Date: 10-29-2012 18:01

Yep. Hey did you see the picture of Cameron that her friend Elizabeth posted on Facebook? You better look it up now. Daddy needs you to drive to Philly and get it straightened out ASAP.

Date: 10-29-2012 18:32

It's getting pretty bad here. At what speed do windows start to break?

Date: 10-29-2012 18:33

Over 100. Did you tie down stuff on your decl?

Date: 10-29-2012 18:34

Is your phone charged?

Date: 10-29-2012 18:34

It's all inside. And yes, at 100%.

Date: 10-29-2012 19:12

Any comment on Cam's picture?

Date: 10-29-2012 20:58

You guys okay? We, surprisingly, still have power. No Internet though.

Date: 10-29-2012 21:00

We're good.

Date: 10-30-2012 09:52

How's it looking in your neighborhood?

Date: 10-30-2012 09:52

Power went out at midnight. It's cold and rainy. The fire alarm went off at 4:00AM. Where's my hotel room?

Date: 10-30-2012 09:53

Do you have ower now?

Date: 10-30-2012 09:53


Date: 10-30-2012 09:52


Date: 10-30-2012 09:54

Uh oh. Save your phone.

Date: 10-30-2012 09:54

Hotel rooms have outlets.

Date: 10-30-2012 10:13

I need a favor (should be on our family crest), could you see if any rooms or suits are available at the Hilton you guys always stay at? I see lights on.

Date: 10-30-2012 10:19

Hilton Alexandria Old Town is $139 with internet. Mark more expensive by $50. Haven't called to see if they have power. Want me to?

Date: 10-30-2012 10:19

I'll take the old town one. Number?

Date: 10-30-2012 10:22

Date: 10-30-2012 10:21

Wait, did you already book it?

Date: 10-30-2012 10:23

Any chance you'd want this PC table and chair?

Date: 11-11-2012 10:38

No, but thank you. I really need arm rests. But I'm spoiling myself with a humidifier today, maybe one day I can get myself a proper chair ;)

Date: 11-11-2012 10:57

Date: 11-11-2012 10:57

Recognize the one on the right?

Date: 11-11-2012 11:21

P.S. Thank you for being comfortable enough to say no. I don't want you and Jean to ever be anything but honest when we offer you something.

Date: 11-12-2012 09:37

Do you know Jean's ring size? Christmas shopping...

Date: 11-17-2012 14:33

Got the Amex bill. Your total is $1,225. Do you want me to take it out of your bank account?

Date: 11-17-2012 14:35

Can I give you the account and routing numbers for my new bank? You can take it from there today.

Date: 11-17-2012 14:36

No prob. I'll set up the account today at It probably takes a few days before they let me do a payment from a newly set up account. Send me numbers.

Date: 11-17-2012 14:37

Date: 11-18-2012 07:51

I took $1225 from your new account today.

Is Cam awake?

Date: 11-21-2012 11:57


Date: 11-21-2012 12:05

We're thinking we'll be at your place around 1:30 and we're thinking we could take you two to Illusions Thai for lunch. About to head into Lord & Taylor now. So maybe ask Cam if she wants to go, and, if so, what time she needs to get up.

Date: 11-21-2012 12:05

We might be as late as 2.

Date: 11-21-2012 13:33


Date: 11-21-2012 13:35

5-7 mins

Date: 11-21-2012 13:38

Correction. ETA is 1:44 according to GPS.

Date: 11-21-2012 13:46


Date: 11-21-2012 13:46

Coming up

Date: 11-21-2012 17:11


Date: 11-21-2012 17:12

Okay. C u then.

Date: 11-24-2012 11:29

The temperature feels like it dropped about 20° since yesterday.

Date: 11-24-2012 11:31

Here, too. We had such a nice time. We love you and Jean very much.

Date: 11-24-2012 11:33

We're visiting Jeanne Lowther. We literally just told her we offered you her rings. She said the idea made her very happy.

Date: 11-27-2012 07:40

Date: 11-27-2012 13:41

Yay! Jean just got a 13% raise!

Date: 11-27-2012 13:42

So proud!

Slow cooker recipe from Aunt Janet, pg 1. Please print out for Jean.

Date: 11-27-2012 17:58

Oops. Just realized you have no way to print it. So I sent it to your email instead. Love you!

Date: 11-27-2012 18:08

Middle row, last column.

Date: 11-27-2012 18:08

Date: 11-27-2012 18:08

Thank you!

Date: 11-27-2012 20:00

Wow, how does that work? Do you have an Apple printer?

Date: 11-27-2012 20:35

No, an Apple wireless router (AirPort Extreme) and any USB printer.

Date: 11-27-2012 20:39

You can alternatively plug in an external hard drive and access it from any computer wirelessly (albeit, a tad slower than than from your own hard drive).

Date: 11-27-2012 20:44

Daddy refuses to do this for me.

Date: 11-27-2012 20:44

Do you like your new Crock Pot?

Date: 11-27-2012 20:44

Yes! Jean was bookmarking (literally) recipes from book you also got us.

Date: 11-27-2012 20:46

What recipes did you bookmark?

Date: 11-27-2012 20:59

Remember when Jean went through your bank statement with a highlighter? That was a funny story.

Date: 12-02-2012 17:34

Have you used your Crock Pot yet?

Date: 12-05-2012 09:17

Can I call you around 9:45?

Date: 12-11-2012 20:32

Date: 12-11-2012 20:34

You're so lucky. We got nothing.

Date: 12-11-2012 20:40

I can't decide which is my favorite part. "Peter and friend Yami," or the second paragraph.

Date: 12-19-2012 17:04

Any suggestions on what can I get for Dad?

Date: 12-19-2012 17:06


Date: 12-19-2012 17:09

There's got to be something good on ThinkGeek.

Date: 12-19-2012 17:11

We're buying an iPad Mini. I'd love a waterproof bag for it, so I could read it in the bathtub. Maybe a cool accessory for that?

Date: 12-19-2012 20:37

No Teri. She just reported in. She's too sick to come : (

Date: 12-20-2012 11:07

Okay, new plan is to come up Saturday and leave Monday.

Date: 12-20-2012 11:10

Did you see our offer to come down? If you'd prefer, we'll drive down on Sunday morning, celebrate with you and Jean Sunday evening and drive home Monday. You pick. We'll bring pasta shells and some meat for dinner.

Date: 12-20-2012 17:32

Date: 12-21-2012 17:14

K. One arrived from Nest. We're not opening it.

Date: 12-21-2012 17:14

Merrrrrry Christmas!

Date: 12-21-2012 18:44

You just gave jean a heart attack. And me.

Date: 12-21-2012 18:45

How's it going?

Date: 12-21-2012 18:47

Why? I'm confused.

Date: 12-21-2012 18:47

So far, so good. Lots of talk about solar energy.

Date: 12-21-2012 18:47

Boring, but beats NRA.

Date: 12-21-2012 18:48

Okay, I get the heart attack now . Duh.

Date: 12-22-2012 11:21

So how much snow?

Date: 12-22-2012 11:23

Very little. It's not snowing now, and the streets are clear and salted. Are you about to leave?

Date: 12-22-2012 11:23


Date: 12-22-2012 13:12

Rush hour starts at noon on Saturday, apparently.

Date: 12-22-2012 14:41

Made it to PA!

Date: 12-22-2012 14:55

No rush. Be safe. Very relaxed today.

Date: 12-24-2012 12:01

Date: 12-24-2012 12:01

I'll ship it to you.

Couldn't have picked a worse day to drive. Been snowing since Breezewood.

Date: 12-24-2012 15:22

Noooo! Are you okay? Is it slippery?

Date: 12-24-2012 16:00

Home safe.

Date: 12-24-2012 16:01

Thank you. Have a wonderful Christmas Eve with Jean. Love you both.

Date: 12-25-2012 12:39

Did we get the right lip balm for Jean?

Date: 12-25-2012 12:39


Date: 12-26-2012 09:11

Date: 12-26-2012 09:11

I'm dreaming of a whiiiite day-after-Christmas!

Date: 12-26-2012 09:15

No snow here--yet.

Date: 12-29-2012 17:32

What's the name of the French breakfast place you took us to?

Date: 12-29-2012 17:33

La Madeleine

Date: 12-30-2012 20:03

Date: 12-30-2012 23:02

I suppose you're a fan of Jamiroquai's Virtual Insanity video.

Date: 12-30-2012 23:03


Date: 12-30-2012 23:03

Because it's so dope.

Date: 12-31-2012 16:13

Your sister drove to Philly today to see Matt's band play tonight. What are you and Jean doing for New Year's?

Date: 12-31-2012 16:35

Sweat pants.

Date: 12-31-2012 16:36

And monkey socks?

Date: 12-31-2012 19:50

Can you activate device ZMYSYME on Hulu Plus for us, please?

Date: 01-05-2013 12:23

Have you eaten out of your new cereal bowl yet?

Date: 01-05-2013 22:41

Date: 01-05-2013 22:41

Never get tired of the cat pictures...

Date: 01-06-2013 18:44

The building across from our balcony is on fire.

Date: 01-06-2013 18:45

Yikes! Send pic. Are fire trucks there?

Date: 01-06-2013 18:45

Yup. Tons.

Date: 01-06-2013 18:45

There's visible smoke too.

Date: 01-06-2013 18:46

At some point will they evacuate your building?

Date: 01-06-2013 18:46

Date: 01-06-2013 18:46

About 5 trucks.

Date: 01-06-2013 18:47

I hope everyone got out--and their pets.

Date: 01-06-2013 18:49

Jean started shoveling our cats into their crates… I can see the firemen going into each room. I don't see any fire, just smoke.

Date: 01-06-2013 18:50

Doesn't hurt to be prepared, but I'm pretty sure that building is far enough away even strong winds couldn't bring it to you.

Date: 01-07-2013 11:37

What happened with the fire?

Date: 01-07-2013 11:38

Not sure the cause, but I know which apartment started it because there was some kind of clean-up crew that was tossing stuff out their window all last night.

Date: 01-07-2013 12:18


Date: 01-08-2013 16:33

Did u get a box from us?

Date: 01-08-2013 17:28

Yes. Thank you for the scraps of newspaper.

Date: 01-08-2013 17:29

You got the mug, though, right?

Date: 01-08-2013 17:29

Yes, I was joking. And the recipe and article.

Date: 01-08-2013 17:30

Okay. Good. Just put a second, surprise package into the mail to you today.

Date: 01-08-2013 17:32

I just finished my spit kit thing for the DNA testing service.

Date: 01-08-2013 17:32

What are you testing for? To figure out if I'm your mother?

Date: 01-08-2013 17:34

Nothing specific. Maybe if I've got some kind of special resistance to a disease or something.

Date: 01-08-2013 17:34

Like a super human?

Date: 01-08-2013 17:36

More like, less likely to die of some specific virus. But more likely ill find out I'm sub-human (will die easier than normal).

Date: 01-08-2013 17:38

Considering the stupid curly hair on my temples, I don't have much hope.

Date: 01-13-2013 16:49

Cats playing patty cake.

Date: 01-14-2013 18:48

Did you get box from us?

Date: 01-14-2013 18:49

Pkg, not. Box

Date: 01-14-2013 19:19

The lion hat?

Date: 01-14-2013 19:20

Awwww. Pic?

Date: 01-17-2013 13:36

Love you! And happy birthday! I'll call you after work.

Date: 01-17-2013 13:37

Love you too. Thank you.

Date: 01-17-2013 13:41

Wish me luck. Today might be the day I finally get that full time offer.

Date: 01-17-2013 13:43

Good luck! I'm feeling good luck in the air.

Date: 01-17-2013 19:27

When do you get to Pgh?

Date: 01-17-2013 21:16

Tomorrow, before rush hour hopefully.

Date: 01-17-2013 21:18

We can offer up a dinner out or a dinner in if one or both of you is available. (Basically, we'll take anyone, anytime.)

Date: 01-17-2013 21:42

Someone sounds a little desperate.

Date: 01-18-2013 16:36

Hi, Sweetie! Are you here? Will we see you tonight? Let me know so we can make our Fri night plans.

Date: 01-18-2013 16:39

Yes, I'm in town. Gonna drop Jean off and then head up to your place if you're there.

Date: 01-18-2013 16:41

Cool. Don't know where you are, but if it's more convenient to come here to get one of our cars first, you're welcome to.

Date: 01-18-2013 16:41

I brought my car.

Date: 01-18-2013 16:43

Jean is welcome to use our car if she wants. Anytime. We'll see you when you get here. Love to you both.

Date: 01-18-2013 17:15

Be there soon.

Date: 01-18-2013 17:17

Never mind, traffic.

Date: 01-18-2013 17:18


Date: 01-18-2013 17:21

Okay Tina

Date: 01-18-2013 17:36

I'm outside.

Date: 01-18-2013 17:37

Come to lobby and dial 38.

Date: 01-18-2013 21:06

Date: 01-19-2013 09:49


Date: 01-19-2013 10:16

Now I am.

Date: 01-19-2013 10:10

Now I am.

---------------------------------------Text Messages----------------------------------

Date: 01-19-2013 10:16

So would you like to get breakfast/brunch with Jean and I? We were thinking oh going to Poppa J's if that's okay.


Date: 01-19-2013 10:19

Yes! What time?

Date: 01-19-2013 10:28

We're taking a shower. Plan on meeting us there at 11:15.

Date: 01-19-2013 10:53

I'll be a tad late. Shower for me, too. Just coffee for me. Already ate. Daddy has meeting. Can't join us. C u soon!

Date: 01-19-2013 11:02

Let me know when you're on your way.

Date: 01-19-2013 11:05

Now. Just left.

Date: 01-20-2013 09:16


Date: 01-20-2013 11:49

We're at Jean's dad's place for brunch.

Date: 01-20-2013 12:01

Got it. Hugs to all.

Date: 01-20-2013 12:40

On our way, can't stay for long.

Date: 01-20-2013 12:45

Sadly, I won't be there. But Daddy is.

Date: 01-20-2013 12:46

Great to see you both. Thank you for coming up.

Date: 01-20-2013 22:20

Home safe?

Date: 01-20-2013 22:22


Date: 01-20-2013 22:23

Good. Loved having you. Jean told me she liked the way the condo looked. So proud!

Date: 01-24-2013 16:27

Can you send me the login info for Netflix?

Date: 01-24-2013 19:08

Sorry. Just saw this. Login is and pw is jwcc.

Date: 01-24-2013 19:08

Hope this is really you.

Date: 01-24-2013 19:08

What did that mean?

Date: 01-24-2013 19:10

You know, in case you're someone phishing for passwords.

Date: 01-24-2013 19:10

Quick, what's your birthday?

Date: 01-24-2013 19:10

Uh… January 1, 1970?

Date: 01-24-2013 19:12

That's it. I've been hacked.

Date: 01-24-2013 19:14

Bwhahaha! I hacked this sap's phone, and instead of purchasing stuff with his iTunes account or selling his information, I though, "You know what, I bet this Gwyn person has a Netflix account she'd share with James."

Date: 01-24-2013 19:15

Same last name. She'd probably do anything for him...

Date: 01-24-2013 22:14

Date: 01-24-2013 22:14

Jean found this at her grandmother's house. We're getting it framed.

Date: 01-25-2013 10:05

Hilarious. Only people that much in love can argue like that.

Date: 01-26-2013 16:51

Date: 01-26-2013 16:51

Do you know this woman?

Date: 01-26-2013 18:10

Why? Give me some context.

Date: 01-26-2013 18:11

Maybe I'm wrong. I thought she might have been one of your teachers. Must know her from somewhere else.

Date: 01-29-2013 21:57

Date: 01-30-2013 10:01

Date: 01-31-2013 15:02

They're filing the paperwork with HR today to convert me to full time on the 17th :D

Date: 02-01-2013 22:18

House of Cards. I'm hooked.

Date: 02-01-2013 23:55

We watched the first two. Very good. When you finish, you should watch the Brit version, too. I like Kevin Spacey in everything.

Date: 02-02-2013 22:21

What episode are you up to?

Date: 02-02-2013 22:37


Date: 02-03-2013 13:06

Date: 02-03-2013 13:06

Do you want us to open??

Date: 02-03-2013 13:06

Or just mail?

Date: 02-03-2013 13:14

Just open it.

Date: 02-03-2013 13:16

Date: 02-04-2013 09:32

So Francis is gay?!? Also, I predict that Peter Russo will either be the hero or will kill someone.

Date: 02-04-2013 09:38

We haven't gotten that far. He wasn't gay in the BBC version, though. Cool that they're adding things.

Date: 02-04-2013 09:40

Well, possibly bisexual. They just strongly hinted at at.

Date: 02-04-2013 09:42

Especially since Kevin Spacey is gay.

Date: 02-04-2013 09:42

Or bisexual.

Date: 02-04-2013 09:45

Really?! Wow.

Date: 02-05-2013 14:44

Yay, manager informed me that some HR guy is supposed to call today or tomorrow to do phone interview and schedule a "cultural assessment" (whatever that is).

Can't start celebrating until I sign that paper.

Date: 02-05-2013 16:36

Everything will be fine. Try not to be too weird.

Date: 02-05-2013 17:24

Just kidding about the weird stuff. We think you're wonderful, of course. Though if the call's on Skype, I would suggest no monkey hat.

Date: 02-06-2013 18:14

Yay on offer! In noisy restaurantvwith Cam, Matt and Teri. Wait till 10 to call, k?

Date: 02-06-2013 18:39

3 1/2 weeks is gr8 vaca, boy.

Date: 02-06-2013 19:06

How's Matt?

Date: 02-06-2013 19:06

Nice. Quiet, but maybe all us loudmouths intimidate him.

Date: 02-06-2013 20:18

We just dropped Teri at train. Shecwill call u.

Date: 02-08-2013 15:17

Date: 02-08-2013 21:12

Ugh, you're using up all the Netflix.

Date: 02-08-2013 21:16

I don't know that means.

Date: 02-08-2013 21:20

There's like a limit on how many devices can stream at once.

Date: 02-08-2013 21:30

We're not watching Netfix. Check with Cam.

Date: 02-08-2013 21:31

Daddy says, "Tell that cheap bastard to get his own Netfix subscription."

Date: 02-09-2013 16:45

Date: 02-10-2013 09:03

Do you still make mac and cheese?

Date: 02-10-2013 09:51

Just last night.

Date: 02-10-2013 09:55


Date: 02-13-2013 00:02

Date: 02-13-2013 00:02

Go to bed!

Date: 02-13-2013 00:03

See, we were helping you by not giving you a ride.

Date: 02-13-2013 12:43

I just got off the phone with HR, they're going to be sending me the offer letter (in the mail) today!

Date: 02-13-2013 12:45

They're emailing me the benefits summary. 80k with a 5k signing bonus.

Date: 02-13-2013 13:17


Date: 02-13-2013 13:18

Are you thrilled?

Date: 02-13-2013 13:22

Aol matches $0.50 on the dollar up to 6% of your base salary. I'll email you the benefits summary.

Date: 02-13-2013 13:25


Date: 02-13-2013 13:25

Did you tell Teri?

Date: 02-13-2013 13:25

I told Daddy.

Date: 02-13-2013 14:01

Well, I'm waiting until I get the offer letter to call her.

Date: 02-13-2013 14:04

Makes sense.

Date: 02-13-2013 14:16

I forwarded you the benefits brochure. The HR guy also said that my 2 years of contracting should get rolled into the vacation benefit.

Date: 02-13-2013 22:31

Date: 02-13-2013 22:31

I'm quoted.

Date: 02-13-2013 22:43

Way to point out how bland dad likes his food.

Date: 02-13-2013 22:46

Does bland refer to the food or Dad?

Date: 02-13-2013 22:48

Dad like life the way he likes his sabussas.

Date: 02-13-2013 22:49

No, that i got. Were you referring to him as "bland dad"?

Date: 02-13-2013 22:50

Ahhh, I see what you did there.

Date: 02-13-2013 22:50

No, purely subconscious.

Date: 02-13-2013 22:52

Daddy says, "Fuck you both."

Date: 02-13-2013 22:54

Whoa there, someone's getting spicy.

Date: 02-14-2013 21:47

Happy Valentine's Day, Boy!

Date: 02-14-2013 21:48

Did you do something wonderful for Jean?

Date: 02-14-2013 21:51

I mailed a Valentine package to you guys today. Be on the lookout. Your new car insurance card is in it. Love you two.

Date: 02-15-2013 10:21

Okay, there was some difficultly getting my 2yrs as a contractor rolled into my vacation benefit, so they offered to increase my annual base salary to 82k + the 5k signing bonus. That sounds reasonable, right?

Date: 02-15-2013 10:24


Date: 02-15-2013 10:25

It's difficult because the vacation stuff is all automated, so it was very complicated to make an exception.

Date: 02-15-2013 10:26

Yes. Might be better. Always good to have salary increased. Do they offer domestic partner benefits?

Date: 02-15-2013 10:26


Date: 02-15-2013 10:27

Increased salary also leads to increased bonus $.

Date: 02-15-2013 10:27

I'd personally rather have the money. And I'm not sure about the domestic partner benefits, but remember Jean already has better benefits than I do now. She paid $20 for a $400 prescription.

Date: 02-15-2013 10:28

Maybe I should be asking if Lord & Taylor offers domestic partner benefits.

Date: 02-15-2013 10:28

Go for it!

Date: 02-15-2013 10:29

Ask if your bonus can assume you started Jan 1, though.

Date: 02-15-2013 10:29

That shouldn't be quite as systemitized.

Date: 02-15-2013 10:38

Bonus will not be pro-rated ;)

Date: 02-15-2013 10:40

Bummer. Well, worth an ask.

Date: 02-15-2013 10:41

Wait, thought that was good.

Date: 02-15-2013 10:41

Sorry! You're right!

Date: 02-15-2013 10:42

Not pro-rated IS good. Important to read all words.

Date: 02-15-2013 10:42

"Pro-rated" is such a terrible word because it sounds so positive.

Date: 02-15-2013 10:43

That was what threw me.

Date: 02-15-2013 10:44

Threw me the first time I heard it too ;)

Date: 02-15-2013 10:45

Hey, we fly to the west coast early tomorrow -- SF, Oregon and Seattle. We'll be home next Friday night. Daddy has a conference in Seattle. We'll see Wileen and Manuel in SF, my writer friend Elaine in Oregon and cousin Jerry, Barb and Teri in Seattle.

Date: 02-15-2013 10:46

SF is quite a drive from Seattle, I've heard. Have fun.

Date: 02-15-2013 10:46

So, don't take a cab?

Date: 02-15-2013 10:47

Unless you owe the cab driver a huge favor.

Date: 02-15-2013 10:48

Date: 02-15-2013 10:48

Hunting a stink bug.

Date: 02-15-2013 10:49

Date: 02-15-2013 10:49

Whoops. More chair time required.

Date: 02-15-2013 13:09

Trying to fill out W-4 form (withholding allowance). Give me a call when you can.

Date: 02-15-2013 13:31

In mtg till 2:30. Is 2:30 okay?

Date: 02-15-2013 13:31

Or call Daddy.

Date: 02-15-2013 13:31

I think I figured it out. And too late anyway, already submitted.

Date: 02-15-2013 13:33

Oh. Sorry. But the W-4 can always be resubmitted anytimeZ.

Date: 02-15-2013 13:35

Yeah, but there was also a VA-4 form.

Date: 02-15-2013 18:30

Hey, now that you have a great official job, i'm going to officially start charging you for your phone service and car insurance. $100 per month, and I'll take it out of your account as a credit on my Amer Ex card, k? First payment tonight. Welcome to the complete world of grown-ups, Boy. So proud.

Date: 02-15-2013 18:33

Sure, but I'll have have to give you my new banks info for future payments.

Date: 02-15-2013 18:34

I think you did already. Let me check.

Date: 02-15-2013 18:39

Is it the Bancorp Bank with last numbers 7720?

Date: 02-15-2013 18:40

Yes, that's fine.

Date: 02-15-2013 18:43

I'm actually going to take the $100 out in another week. Can't make two payments to Am Ex from two different bank accounts in the ssme three-day period. Why? I have no idea.

Date: 02-15-2013 18:43

So, are you and Jean celebrating your new job?

Date: 02-19-2013 15:54

Good luck today!! How's it going?

Date: 02-19-2013 17:16

My background check just cleared and there's some kind of orientation thingy tomorrow (I9 forms too).

---------------------------------------Text Messages----------------------------------

How celebratory!

Date: 02-21-2013 20:59

Kurt Cobain's shirt.

Date: 02-21-2013 21:12

Now why hasn't some clothing company made a copy of that?

Date: 02-22-2013 06:58

Jeff Bagley is at Love you!

Date: 02-23-2013 17:15

Long read, but eerily similar to me (minus the sociopath part).

Date: 02-23-2013 17:17

And the dad part. My dad is pretty awesome.

Date: 02-23-2013 17:58

There's a lot to digest here. Are you satisfied with your life?

Date: 02-23-2013 17:58

Your dad is pretty awesome.

Date: 02-23-2013 17:58

And my mom is, too!

Date: 02-23-2013 17:59

Thank you.

Date: 02-23-2013 17:58

I'm not exactly like him, but his thought process is very similar.

Date: 02-23-2013 17:58

Once he get to around age 14 is where it started to hit home with me.

Date: 02-23-2013 18:01

Outwardly, you seemed to fit in with the world, at least to me.

Date: 02-23-2013 18:11

Did you (do you) see yourself as that out of place in the outside world?

Date: 02-23-2013 19:17

I feel absolutely normal. It's everyone else that's odd.

Date: 02-23-2013 19:17

: )

Date: 02-25-2013 15:53

Date: 02-25-2013 15:53

Do you remember this, darling boy?

Date: 02-25-2013 16:01

Yes. I remember the orange stripes on the white belt, too.

Date: 02-26-2013 20:41


Date: 02-26-2013 20:44

For me? No.

Date: 02-26-2013 20:46

I figured you'd say that. I, on the other hand, love it. I guess it's a girl thing. I'll let you borrow it sometimes.

Date: 02-26-2013 20:48

Lets not blame *all* women for your “interesting” taste in clothes.

Date: 02-26-2013 20:48

: )

Date: 02-27-2013 18:41

What does "Up Up Down Down B A B A Select" mean to you?

Date: 02-27-2013 18:42

Colbert, eh? Konami Code.

Date: 02-27-2013 18:46

Thank you!

Date: 02-28-2013 19:15

Date: 03-02-2013 09:27

You made your dad so happy with that Nest thermostat. He was checking the app on his phone over breakfast. He loves it.

Date: 03-02-2013 11:11

Date: 03-02-2013 11:20

-_- ohmygod…

Date: 03-04-2013 09:56

Uh oh. Snow in DC Tuesday night. Are you prepared?

Date: 03-05-2013 08:07

Seriously. Are you prepared for the snow?

Date: 03-05-2013 14:16

How should I prepare? But seriously, it's 55° and sunny right now.

Date: 03-05-2013 14:17

You know, food in fridge. Candles in case the lights go out. That sort of thing.

Date: 03-06-2013 08:00

Both Jean and I have the Flu. Hurray.

Date: 03-06-2013 08:02

Oh, no. I wish I was there to take care of you. Rest, Advil, hot liquids. Bug hug. How's the snow?

Date: 03-06-2013 08:58

^Big hug.

Date: 03-06-2013 17:47

Date: 03-06-2013 17:47

Greetings! How are you and Jean feeling?

Date: 03-06-2013 18:42

Terrible. We have been drinking water, taking meds, showering, and sleeping. That's it.

Date: 03-06-2013 18:44

Date: 03-06-2013 18:47

Oh, my poor baby.

Date: 03-07-2013 13:46

Any better today?

Date: 03-10-2013 15:19

Look familiar?

Patio Set $75

Date: 03-10-2013 15:21

"Be wary of glass-top table..."

Date: 03-10-2013 15:21

It's in your area. Can you pick it up for us?

Date: 03-10-2013 15:21


Date: 03-12-2013 07:26

So I felt okay all day yesterday until around 10:30PM when my temp shot back up to 100.2°F… weird.

Date: 03-12-2013 07:29

Did the high temp continue? Are you normal now (using term loosely.)

Date: 03-12-2013 07:30

Yeah, muscles still sore and some nasty moments clearing my throat, but I feel as fine as I did yesterday.

I was very aware of my temp rising last night (like night and day).

Date: 03-12-2013 07:32

That is a little weird. Hopefully, it's all done now. How's Jean?

Date: 03-12-2013 07:44

She's doing better now.

Date: 03-12-2013 07:45

My poor dear darlings.

Date: 03-13-2013 17:14

We've started the paperwork. We're changing your name from James Wyatt Cready-Pyle to James Tiberius Cready-Pyle. Hope you approve.

Date: 03-13-2013 17:23


Date: 03-13-2013 17:24

We just finished watching the Star Trek reboot. That Chris Pine is dreamy. We thought of you.

Date: 03-23-2013 14:57

How much is a pack of cigarettes?

Date: 03-23-2013 14:58

Like $5.75, I don't pay attention, I just swipe my card.

Date: 03-23-2013 21:44

Date: 03-23-2013 21:50


Date: 03-23-2013 22:05

Cam's home!

Date: 03-25-2013 08:43

Date: 03-25-2013 08:43


Date: 03-25-2013 08:46

At least it's pretty, right? You gotta think positive.

Date: 03-25-2013 08:47

I'm just surprised. Plus it's all good news to me, I work from home :D

Date: 03-25-2013 08:47

Poor Jean, though :(

Date: 03-25-2013 08:48

Maybe you'll make dinner for her, to make up for her inconvenience?

Date: 03-25-2013 08:48


Date: 03-25-2013 08:49

Or at least have pizza waiting?

Date: 03-25-2013 10:54

I've got keys and a wallet :D

Date: 03-25-2013 11:40

And a wonderful life partner.

Date: 03-27-2013 16:37

I will be arriving in Pittsburgh on that Friday afternoon-ish. Hopefully before rush hour.

Date: 03-27-2013 16:41

No Jean, then?

Date: 04-05-2013 19:52

78 in DC on Monday!!

Date: 04-05-2013 19:59

The bees are already inhabiting my balcony -_-

Date: 04-05-2013 20:00

Did you see Colbert discussing the Jeremy Irons hoo-ha? Hilarious. Last night's episode.

Date: 04-06-2013 20:13

The first car ride you ever had--from West Penn Hospital to our house in Greentree--was in a Honda. Do you think that's why you like them?

Date: 04-07-2013 19:52

Date: 04-07-2013 19:52

Date: 04-07-2013 19:52

Date: 04-07-2013 19:53

Awww, where are you at?

Date: 04-07-2013 19:55

In Philly. Daddy and Diane are at a conference. Really wish you and Jean were here.

Date: 04-07-2013 22:44

Date: 04-07-2013 22:45

Reminds me of a darling little boy I once knew.

Date: 04-07-2013 22:46

I figured you could relate.

Date: 04-07-2013 22:50

I showed Daddy. He laughed until he cried.

Date: 04-09-2013 22:06

Are you investing in bitcoins?

Date: 04-11-2013 16:37

You're still coming to see your old mom tomorrow?

Date: 04-11-2013 16:38

Yes ma'am!

Date: 04-11-2013 16:38

Arriving by 4?

Date: 04-11-2013 16:39

That's the plan. When is dinner?

Date: 04-11-2013 16:39

We just picked up Harvey and M at the airport.

Date: 04-11-2013 16:39


Date: 04-11-2013 16:41

Can we convince darling Jean to join you?

Date: 04-11-2013 16:41

Unfortunately no ;(
You're going to have to settle for just me.

Date: 04-11-2013 16:45


Date: 04-11-2013 17:34

Date: 04-11-2013 17:34


Date: 04-11-2013 17:34

At least it isn't snow.

Date: 04-11-2013 17:35

Date: 04-13-2013 12:36

Have you played BioShock Infinite?

Date: 04-13-2013 14:44

Angkor Restaurant
2350 Noblestown Rd, Pittsburgh, PA 15205

Hope to see you at 5.

Date: 04-14-2013 11:12

Date: 04-14-2013 14:56

I think I left my "All my friends are dead." shirt there. -_-

Date: 04-14-2013 14:56

I'll wash and mail. Are you home safe?

Date: 04-14-2013 15:01


Date: 04-14-2013 16:05

Good. Did you get the email I sent?

Date: 04-14-2013 16:32


Date: 04-14-2013 16:33

Sooo easy! In a garbage bag!!

Date: 04-18-2013 16:53

Your sister's birthday is Sunday (19 years old), and I know she would love to hear from you and to get a shopping gift certficate. If you tell her an amount, you can tell her to charge using her AmerEx card, and I'll deduct it from your account. Love you. We had such a nice time seeing you. I don't know if you've been working on it, but I think your anxiety is better. V proud. It's not easy.

Date: 04-18-2013 19:48

If I give you an ebook I bought on iBooks, can you figure out how to break the protection and change it into a Word doc?

Date: 04-18-2013 20:01

That sounds awfully nefarious…

Date: 04-18-2013 20:02

Does it help if it's my book?

Date: 04-18-2013 20:03

You lost the master copy?

Date: 04-18-2013 20:12

I have the antepenultimate copy. The publisher who is no longer my publisher owns the ultimate copy.

Date: 04-18-2013 20:16

I own the rights to the book, though.

Date: 04-18-2013 20:31

Send it, I might be able to find something.

Date: 04-18-2013 20:38

Hm. Next problem. How do you get into my iBook library?

Date: 04-18-2013 20:40


Date: 04-19-2013 15:22

Date: 04-19-2013 17:33

This is weird.

Date: 04-19-2013 22:10

They got him:

Date: 04-19-2013 22:16

Great shot. If it was a cop, he'll be fired for posting it.

Date: 04-19-2013 22:17

The Redditor who posted it is close family friends with one of Boston's finest.

Date: 04-21-2013 10:13

$100 for Cam

Date: 04-21-2013 10:14

Such a sweet brother! Did you tell her?

Date: 04-21-2013 10:15

Just did.

Date: 05-01-2013 22:23

Enjoy the lightness of being on Snapchat! Add me: gwyncready

Date: 05-02-2013 15:08

Are you coming this weekend?

Date: 05-03-2013 11:11

Boy, are you coming today?

Date: 05-03-2013 11:13

No, I'm not ;(

I have to get Jean a birthday present this weekend.

Date: 05-03-2013 11:15

Good man. We'll see you in two weeks.

Date: 05-04-2013 19:59

Date: 05-04-2013 19:59

This is cute and funny.

Date: 05-04-2013 20:02

Date: 05-04-2013 20:02

This one, on the other hand--same designer--is really cool.

Date: 05-04-2013 20:16

Date: 05-04-2013 20:16

I was thinking I could add this to her collection.

Date: 05-04-2013 20:17

Ooh. Very nice!

Date: 05-04-2013 20:17

Is it Ippolito or something like that?

Date: 05-04-2013 20:17

Yes, Ippolita.

Date: 05-04-2013 20:18

Pretty sure it's her second favorite designer aside from Todd Reed.

Date: 05-04-2013 20:19

Who thought such words would ever be coming out of your mouth?

Date: 05-05-2013 11:32

Have you ever been to the Pro Football Hall of Fame?

Date: 05-05-2013 12:32

Where is it? I doubt it.

Date: 05-05-2013 12:32

Akron, Ohio.

Date: 05-05-2013 12:33

We'll take you there someday, if you want .

Date: 05-08-2013 16:14

Date: 05-08-2013 16:14

Hey, I'm on a planning committee with your old friend, Blaise.

Date: 05-08-2013 16:14

He asked if you were keeping your GPA up.

Date: 05-08-2013 19:44

Nothing? Not even a "....."?

Date: 05-08-2013 19:45

Cam at least gives me a "...." Once I got a 10-dot response. One for the record books.

Date: 05-08-2013 20:31


Date: 05-08-2013 20:34


Date: 05-08-2013 20:42

Tell him I kept a very *consistent* GPA. (When is iMessage getting bold, italic and underline?!)

Date: 05-11-2013 18:45

Jean is 0.1% more Neanderthal than me!

Date: 05-11-2013 18:48

That seems entirely impossible. Nothing personal, of course.

Date: 05-11-2013 19:06

She's got super low chances of breast cancer, huzzah!

Date: 05-11-2013 19:06

Time to a ring on it.

Date: 05-11-2013 19:06


Date: 05-11-2013 20:23


Date: 05-12-2013 08:46

HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY! From your favorite son.

Date: 05-12-2013 08:47

Awww. Love you. Are you having fun with Jean's family? And did the video at the link I sent?

Date: 05-12-2013 15:07

Check out this article from USA TODAY:

Millennials are serious about saving

Date: 05-13-2013 17:26

What are the dates we're doing the Pyle family thing again?

Date: 05-14-2013 21:15

I need the mileage on your Honda in order to renew your registration. Next smoke can you grab it for me?

Date: 05-15-2013 09:22

Can you send me the name of the movie theater?

Date: 05-15-2013 09:24

AMC Hoffman Center 22

Date: 05-15-2013 09:33


Date: 05-17-2013 08:10

Date: 05-17-2013 14:25

Hey, I'm not going to have time to hang out before dinner ;(

Did you want to meet in DC for dinner? And where? Jean and I should be ready by 5:30. We can always get Thai around here too if you're not going to be downtown.

Date: 05-17-2013 14:31

We made a reservation at Clude's at 7. Should we meet you at your place so we can drop off Socks. When?

Date: 05-17-2013 14:32


Date: 05-17-2013 15:58

Should we show up around 5:45 or 6 at your house to have a drink?

Date: 05-17-2013 15:58

Dad and I have decided to leave Socks at our hotel room.

Date: 05-17-2013 16:24

That sounds perfect. Not sure if we have anything left to drink after last weekend -_-

Date: 05-17-2013 16:27

Ha! Maybe we'll bring wine...

Date: 05-17-2013 17:40


Date: 05-17-2013 17:42

We are pulling off 270 onto G Washington Pkwy, so about two hours.

Date: 05-17-2013 17:45

Do you have wine or shoulde we stop? Mom needs her Mommy juice.

Date: 05-17-2013 17:46

You should stop. No wine here :(

Date: 05-17-2013 17:49

Estimated arrival according to iMap is 6:13.

Date: 05-17-2013 17:49


Date: 05-17-2013 17:51

Actually, I'll pick up the wine. What's your brand?

Date: 05-17-2013 17:53

If you can get cold pinot grigio or chardonnay or sauvignon blanc, that would be great. If you can't get cold or if Jean prefers red, cabernet or malbec is good. Thank you!!!

Date: 05-17-2013 17:54

Jean gets headaches from red wine, FYI.

Date: 05-17-2013 17:55

White, it is! And I can drink it on ice cubes if it's not cold.

Date: 05-17-2013 18:15

We're exiting on Seminary. Be there at 6:21.

Date: 05-17-2013 18:18


Date: 05-17-2013 18:19


Date: 05-17-2013 18:20

Is my wine poured?

Date: 05-17-2013 20:50

If we wanted, could we drop Socks off in the morning so Daddy and I could hit a museum or something? I'm thinking like 9:00 or so?

Date: 05-17-2013 21:42


Unrelated, but Jean just got her ancestry report back from that 23andme thing: she got 0.3% Sub-Saharan African and 0.2% Middle Eastern/Northern African. I was 100% European.

Date: 05-17-2013 21:43


Date: 05-18-2013 08:14

Are you up? Do you want to have breakfast?

Date: 05-18-2013 08:35

Sure. I will anyways. Jean is still asleep.

Date: 05-18-2013 08:38

Ooo. Jean is up now and wants breakfast!

Date: 05-18-2013 08:39

Okay. We'll leavev tn a couple mins. We'll text with an ETA. We'll leave Socks in the car and meet you at Le Madeline at ETA. What street is Le Madeline on?

Date: 05-18-2013 08:43

La Madeleine Country French Cafe.loc.vcf

Date: 05-18-2013 08:57

ETA at restaurant is 9:31. Will alert you if that changes materially.

Date: 05-18-2013 09:29

We're here.

Date: 05-18-2013 09:32

We're almost there.

Date: 05-18-2013 09:35


Date: 05-18-2013 13:00

We'll be there at 1:10.

Date: 05-18-2013 13:05


Date: 05-18-2013 13:06

We're here.

Date: 05-18-2013 23:15

Apparently we didn't win Powerball. I'm going to call to complain.

Date: 05-18-2013 23:26

We were robbed!

Date: 05-19-2013 09:25

What's up at your house?

Date: 05-19-2013 09:56

They're still sleeping. Shall we wake them up?

Date: 05-19-2013 10:03

Yes. Remind them they'll want to shower AFTER swimming, saving time now. If we could aim for 11 or 11:30 at Le Madeline in Rockville, that would be great.

Date: 05-19-2013 10:06

Crap. Lester just checked. Pool is closed from 10-6. No reason to come here. We can come there. I'm hopping in the shower. Text Daddy.

Date: 05-19-2013 10:51

In car now. ETA says 11:26.

Date: 05-19-2013 10:51


Date: 05-19-2013 11:22

Hey, you took our spot!

Date: 05-19-2013 11:22

We're at light.

Date: 05-19-2013 11:22


Date: 05-20-2013 10:06

Wyatt, we had such a nice time. Thank you. You have grown up to be such a nice man. You're good to your sister and good to your mom and dad. You're a relaxed host, and I know that's not easy for you. But you are either getting better or hiding it well. We felt very welcome. And we are very proud of all you've accomplished. Love you.

Date: 05-20-2013 11:05

Also, I need your odometer reading.

Date: 05-21-2013 20:49

Oh, did you guys watch Mad Men yet this week?

Date: 05-21-2013 21:35

Omigod! I was speechless--and highly entertained. It was like Twin Peaks meets Ad Age.

Date: 05-21-2013 21:35

That tap dance...

Date: 05-21-2013 21:36

What was that drug? Speed?

Date: 05-21-2013 21:37

Docs used to give people shots of B12 mixed with amphetamines. It "helped" you if you were tired or wanted to lose weight. Jim used to get them.

Date: 05-21-2013 21:39

Jim's probably had less upper stuff in them. At least, he never blacked out, footraced through the house or tapdanced.

Date: 05-21-2013 21:47

That's exactly what Adderall does to people (who take more than prescribed anyways). And it only lasts 4 hours, not 72. I really liked how they showed Don "skipped" through the 72 hours, as if he just lost hours at a time.

Date: 05-21-2013 21:48

Showed how*

Date: 05-21-2013 21:49

I read one review that suggested Matt Weiner was essentially showing what it's like to be a writer on Mad Men.

Date: 05-21-2013 21:53

He was infatuated with that woman he was having an affair with because of the beauty mark (like the woman from his childhood). It wasn't until he remembered the consequences from when he was a boy that he got over her

Date: 05-21-2013 21:55

Probably. The flashbacks bore me. Gee, his childhood impacted his view of the world. Wiw, there's a thought no one's had before.

Date: 05-21-2013 21:56


Date: 05-21-2013 22:01

How did that black woman know Don's full name? Or what he looked like?

Date: 05-21-2013 22:10

Maybe from a letter in the apartment? Or a tenant listing like in our building?

Date: 05-21-2013 22:10

Favorite line: "Are we negroes?"

Date: 05-22-2013 07:36

Date: 05-22-2013 07:36

Remind me again. Was your odometer 12,100 or 10,100? I think 12.

Date: 05-22-2013 08:22


Date: 05-22-2013 08:26

Also, the creator is wrong, note the how the title of the article spells it differently to get a different pronunciation. English motherfucker! Do you speak it?!

Date: 05-22-2013 10:33

Does he also pronounce "gift" as "jift"?

Have you already watched all of the new episodes of Arrested Development?


Date: 05-26-2013 08:58

Nope. I'm at a cabin, no signal.

Date: 05-26-2013 09:05

My son, in a cabin?

Date: 05-26-2013 09:37

It's got a hot tub and TV. Just no cell coverage.

Date: 05-26-2013 09:48

Date: 05-26-2013 10:14

Oooh! Nice! Where are you?

Date: 05-26-2013 10:18

Deep Creek.

Date: 05-26-2013 10:20


Date: 05-26-2013 17:17

Ten minutes into the first episode… I already hate it.

Date: 05-26-2013 18:25

It got better during the second half…

Date: 05-26-2013 18:26

Half you watch any episodes yet?

Date: 05-26-2013 18:39

Not yet.

An app called 8mm. It's cool.

Date: 05-29-2013 14:54

Huge career news. Not sure how to feel.

Date: 05-29-2013 14:57

Not bad… just risky.

Date: 05-29-2013 20:35

Does Jean still love you after your news?

Date: 05-30-2013 11:26

Would you like to get your car inspected while you're in Pgh the weekend of June 15? Or would you rather drive over the border another time?

Date: 05-31-2013 11:13

Call today when you have time. About your b-day present.

Date: 06-01-2013 16:11

Look what we found.

Date: 06-01-2013 16:11

Date: 06-01-2013 16:13

In a Macy's? Macy's sells the line.

Date: 06-03-2013 18:59

Daddy thinks the best place to get your car inspected would be a Honda dealership since you're covered under warranty. Would you prefer the dealership in Shadyside or the one in Peters Township?

Date: 06-04-2013 17:20

Any preference?

Date: 06-04-2013 17:20

Peters Township

Thank you! How about this problem when trying to print? Already rebooted. Same error. Any thoughts?

Date: 06-11-2013 11:26

Never seen that error before. Never knew Preview had plug-ins to install.

You start by uninstalling Office…

Just grab the bottom right corner. There is some app that I use which uses keyboard shortcuts to size the current window. Might be useful to you:

⌘ = Command
⌥ = Option
⌃ = Control

Date: 06-11-2013 13:33

We're at the Udvar-Hazy. Can you join us?--Mom, 3:15 pm

Date: 06-12-2013 16:05

Unfortunately I cannot ;(
What time are you guys coming over?

Date: 06-12-2013 16:51

Should we come over? Or should we just meet early at the bar at Clyde's?

Date: 06-12-2013 16:53

We do have to drop off some big glass candle holders for Jean. We can just put them in your trunk, though.

Date: 06-12-2013 17:00

We can just meet you at Clyde's. 6:30?

Date: 06-12-2013 17:12


Date: 06-12-2013 19:10

We are seated at our table, in our usual room.

Date: 06-12-2013 18:38

Are you here?

Date: 06-13-2013 08:41

It was great being together last night. Love you so much.

Date: 06-13-2013 18:28

I thought I took it about 1 1/2 years ago.

Date: 06-13-2013 18:29

Digging into oldies.

Date: 06-13-2013 18:49

Totally forgot to ask: What do you think of John Oliver?

Date: 06-14-2013 07:32

Happy birthday, darling boy. I have your present now! Will give it to you when we get home.



Date: 06-14-2013 10:51

What's your ETA for Pgh?

Date: 06-14-2013 10:55


Date: 06-14-2013 11:04

Okay. Park in the visitors lot. The petsitter will leave keys to our condo in the visor of Daddy's 66 Ford truck, which is parked in front of the condo building, after she walks Socks, which should be around 2 pm. We have number keypad lock on the door to our actual condo now (the part we own.) The code is 9563. (One of the keys the petsitter leaves will work, too.) To lock the condo front door when you leave, just press the button with the picture of a lock on it. It makes a loud, long noise. Just ignore it. Don't open the awning on our terrace. Too windy. And don't let the cats out on the terrace or we'll get kicked out.

We should be in Pittsburgh around 7 pm if you want to meet at Campiti's. We'll text you.

Finally, Happy Birthday!!

Large pepperoni pizza, small sausage pizza, two salads, one with ranch, one with French, one rootbeer, and whatever you want.

They only take cash. There's an ATM at the convenience store a block away. We'll be at 1000 Grandview at 7:30.

Date: 06-14-2013 18:21

You want me to order it? What's the number?

Date: 06-14-2013 18:24

I'll order it if you tell me what you want. I'll order it at 7 for pick-up at 7:15.

Date: 06-14-2013 18:24

I'll just eat the pizza.

Date: 06-14-2013 18:31

Okay. I'll call at 7. May throw a second small pepp into the mix. I'd take at least $40.

Date: 06-14-2013 18:55

Food called in. Ready for pickup at 7:15. C u soon!

Yeah. We don't call it hot until it breaks triple digits.

Nope. Why?

After hearing the bee story it suddenly dawned on me that Jean may remind you of Glorith.

Date: 07-11-2013 21:17

Today is your namesake's birthday. He would have been 87.

Date: 07-11-2013 22:25

How old was he? Got another one of those storms rolling in.

Date: 07-11-2013 22:26

He died in 2002 at age 75.

: (

Date: 07-21-2013 15:29

Can it be fixed if you're willing to pay?

Date: 07-21-2013 15:30

Is it your work or home laptop?

Date: 07-21-2013 15:30

Is everything on it backed up?

Date: 07-21-2013 15:33

It'll cost $1,000 to fix it. Mine. No.

Do you need one if you have one through work?

Date: 07-21-2013 15:50

I don't have one through work.

Date: 07-21-2013 15:51

Also, if they fix it for $1K, will you get the dtuff of your hard drive back?

Date: 07-21-2013 15:51


Date: 07-21-2013 15:50

That was the one I used for work, but it was mine.

Date: 07-21-2013 15:52

They need to provide you with a computer.

Date: 07-21-2013 15:52

You're not a contractor.

Date: 07-21-2013 15:52

No, Apple would likely have to replace the HD.

Date: 07-21-2013 15:52


Date: 07-21-2013 15:53

Do they provide computers for everyone else?

Date: 07-21-2013 15:52

That episode of Breaking Bad might as well have been called "Awkward Silences For An Hour". But seriously, our company might be closing tomorrow and I got a bunch of legal stuff…

I just need some amazing person to assure me I'm not getting screwed somehow :D

How the beach?!?

Love you,

Date: 08-12-2013 20:50

Wait. You mean the agreement to form your new company is closing tomorrow, right?

Date: 08-12-2013 20:50

We loved the BB episode. Amazing.

Date: 08-12-2013 20:51

That's different than your company closing, right.

Date: 08-12-2013 20:51


Date: 08-12-2013 21:01

No, that's what I'm talking about. Our company would become independent.

Date: 08-13-2013 09:18

Are you available for a conf call with me and my lawyer friend on your contract?

Date: 08-13-2013 09:48

Call me when you can. I have the 411 on your contract.

Date: 08-15-2013 19:51

We were supposed to "close" the deal with AOL today, but now it's getting put off until next Wednesday. And I brought up the stock issue and I guess it was good I did because no one else noticed and they were all interested in an answer.

We had a meeting with our lawyer today. Our stock is dilutable… so nice catch -_-

Date: 08-15-2013 19:52

What happened to non-dilutable?

Date: 08-15-2013 19:59

The lawyer said it was very uncommon to do that. And that it would be harder to raise money from investors or something. And stuff about new hires. Idk, it was a lot of legal/accounting stuff that was over my head.

Date: 08-15-2013 19:59

What should I do?

Date: 08-15-2013 20:00

Did Gino promise you undilutable stock?

Date: 08-15-2013 20:02

The first day he told me about starting a new company he specifically said the words "non-dilutable stock". It has never been mentioned again since.

Date: 08-15-2013 20:04

Get together with the "they" in "they were all interested in the answer." As a group ask Gino who is getting undilutable stock. Then, if you all were promised it, point out that non-dilutable stock is worth more than dilutable. Ask if everyone's shares should be doubled to make up for the difference. Friendly discussion, tho.

Date: 08-15-2013 20:05

Worth a shot. There's power in numbers.

Date: 08-15-2013 20:06

Oh. I found out that I'm actually getting 2%. I didn't connect those two thing until just now.

Date: 08-15-2013 20:07

Okay. That's good.

Date: 08-15-2013 20:06

I found that out on Monday. I'll be getting 5,000 shares out of 250,000 total.

Date: 08-15-2013 20:09

So did they just double everyone's shares because they were aware that my question might come up?

Date: 08-15-2013 20:12

I wonder. Would have been nice for mgmt to point that out.

Date: 08-15-2013 20:12


Date: 08-15-2013 20:13

To be honest, they're probably planning to sell 250,000 more shares to investors, diluting your shares to 1%.

Date: 08-15-2013 20:13

Which is okay if it increases the value of the company and endures it survives and thrives.

Date: 08-15-2013 20:20

You might ask what the investor plans are.

Date: 08-18-2013 20:20

Did you arrive?

Date: 08-18-2013 21:29

Yup. Safe and sound.

Date: 08-18-2013 21:38


Date: 08-18-2013 21:38

That was from Ansel.

Date: 08-18-2013 21:39

He almost won the board game we were playing. But Cam beat him.

Date: 08-18-2013 21:40

How long is he staying?!?!?

We've convinced him to stay till you arrive.

I reserved one of the guest hotel rooms at our building for you and Jean for Sat night, Aug 31, and Sunday night, Sep 1. Labor Day is Monday, Sep 2. Are those the right days to reserve? We'll be able to watch fireworks on Saturday night. And we'll invite Ansel to join us.

that part, too

Date: 08-25-2013 10:56

Hey, can you confirm if Saturday night, August 31 and Sunday night, September 1 are the nights you and Jean need at the hotel room at our condo. Because that's what I've reserved.

Date: 08-26-2013 11:25

Yes, that is correct.

Date: 08-26-2013 11:26

Date: 08-26-2013 11:26

So there's a possibility that Winamp's deal with AOL might not go through… in which case we'd "shut down" on Tuesday ;(

Date: 08-30-2013 11:06

This should make for a nice relaxing weekend

Date: 08-30-2013 11:08


Date: 08-30-2013 11:09

Would Winamp the service literally go away then?

Date: 08-30-2013 11:10

I suppose

Date: 08-30-2013 11:11

Despite having millions of users? Someone's playing a game of chicken.

Date: 08-30-2013 11:11

When I asked what would happen to us my manager responded, "We would get layoff packages and possibly be given the chance to find another job within AOL. If you found another job within AOL you wouldn't be able to keep the layoff package"

Date: 08-30-2013 11:12

It's not AOL stopping us from making the deal, it's a matter of us getting a search/revenue partner before our deadline to make the deal with AOL

Date: 08-30-2013 11:13

Got it.

Date: 08-30-2013 11:26

Hey, as Jim used to say, in a hundred years we'll look back and laugh.

Date: 08-30-2013 20:14

Ansel is joining us for dinner tomorrow.

Date: 08-30-2013 20:25

Yes, he told me. What are we having?

Date: 08-30-2013 20:29


Date: 08-30-2013 20:29


Date: 08-31-2013 13:29

Appetizers when you get here. Dinner around 7. Fireworks at 10.

Date: 09-01-2013 20:49

Breaking Bad starts in 10 minutes!

Date: 09-02-2013 15:53

Date: 09-02-2013 16:07

Yup. Just got home.

Date: 09-02-2013 18:41

So I must have missed it earlier in the season, but did Walt's cancer actually come back? Or is just lying to everyone?

Date: 09-02-2013 19:58

Well, we did see him throw up when no one else is around, so I think it's back.

Date: 09-02-2013 19:59

Okay. I'd thought I'd missed something. And he did cough a few times in the last episode.

Workers have 30 percent LESS buying power today than in 1968. If the minimum wage had kept up with employee productivity, it would be $16.54 per hour instead of $7.25.

Date: 09-03-2013 11:37

95% sure winamp is dead ;(

Date: 09-03-2013 11:38

Oh, boy.

Date: 09-03-2013 11:53

Change is the only constant…

Date: 09-03-2013 14:54

Video tour of new high school.

Date: 09-04-2013 12:44

What's the poop?

Date: 09-05-2013 13:14

What news?

Date: 09-05-2013 14:22

Nothing much. My insurance still works and I believe I'm still getting a paycheck, but I don't know when anything is happening. I know Winamp is dead though.

I'm working on updating the old resume and I'll probably be applying for this:

Maybe you can help me with the cover letter and stuff.

Date: 09-05-2013 14:24

I'm trying to get as many screenshots as I can since I won't be able to simply link to the massive project I've sunk two years of my life into -_-

Date: 09-05-2013 15:16

So sorry, my love. But the truth is, what doesn't kill you makes you stronger. You learned soooo much!

Date: 09-05-2013 15:16

I will be happy to help with your resume. Send it. Also, look at Loft Resumes and pick a format you like. Once we finalize the words, we can hand the info off to them.

Date: 09-05-2013 20:31

I've emailed you the cover letter I'm planning to send to Viget.

Date: 09-05-2013 20:32

Okay. I'm driving. I'll look at it as soon as I get home which should be in 15 minutes or so. love you!

Date: 09-06-2013 09:42

Did you revise resume? When you're ready to send it to Loft, let me know.

Date: 09-06-2013 13:23

If you're expecting a separation pkg from AOL, don't sign anything until you talk to me.

Date: 09-06-2013 14:14

Date: 09-06-2013 14:14

Your order #.

Date: 09-06-2013 14:15

Send them the PDF and reference your order #.

Date: 09-06-2013 14:15

1-day, btw, will mean Monday.

Date: 09-06-2013 14:14

Again, I've only been an AOL employee for like 4-5 months

Date: 09-06-2013 14:15

I sent you the revised resume

Date: 09-06-2013 14:15

Are we talking separation?

Date: 09-06-2013 14:16

I know, but, again, I'm in car with PC.

Date: 09-06-2013 14:16

ah well, I'd still feel safer if you got another chance to read over the changes I made

Date: 09-06-2013 14:17

On separation: It's considered bad (read "bordering abusive") for a big company to hire someone then lay them off.

Date: 09-06-2013 14:16

And I don't think I got any changes on the cover letter I sent you

Date: 09-06-2013 14:17

You and I will have a chance to make changes. I think you get a couple of rounds.

Date: 09-06-2013 14:18

On cover letter, I sent changes in an email attachment last night. Check email.

Date: 09-06-2013 14:18

How do I do this on loft's site? I only see a way to order. I don't see anyway to enter a previous order #

Date: 09-06-2013 14:20

Back to separation: So you need to say it's a problem that they hired you and are now trying to lay you off before you've even worked a year there. To fix the problem, you need as many months severance as it would take to give you 12 months as an employee, plus the bonus.

Date: 09-06-2013 14:20

We haven't even started talking to HR yet

Date: 09-06-2013 14:21

Just find some email, like and send it there.

Date: 09-06-2013 14:22

That's fine. But that needs to be your strategy. When they hand you an agreement, say you're concerned about being hired then let go. Then say you want to give your attorney a chance to look at the agreement before you sign. Easy peasy.

Date: 09-06-2013 14:41

Just talked to my manager and there are a few things you should probably know: 1) AOL has an internal tool called eMobility that makes it easier to transfer among groups inside AOL (i.e. apply for another job inside AOL) and 2) AOL might keep 2-4 people around to help maintain/shutdown Winamp.

Date: 09-06-2013 14:41

He guessed that we might be talking to HR as early as Monday (as a group) and then they'd schedule time to meet with us individually

Date: 09-06-2013 14:43

Do you really think that AOL would pay me $41k + bonuses + unused vacation? Assuming I opted to take a pkg instead of another job inside AOL?

Date: 09-06-2013 14:44

because I could really use a $41k deposit in my bank account

Date: 09-06-2013 14:44

I'd take a 6mo vacation

Date: 09-06-2013 14:54

Just looked at my oldest paycheck from AOL. It was dated March 15 so I can assume that I've been working for AOL for almost exactly 6 months.

Date: 09-06-2013 14:58

They'll probably offer you two weeks' pay. But we'll ask for $40K, and you might end up with $15K. Who knows?

Date: 09-06-2013 15:46

What would you rather do? Work somewhere else at AOL (safe) or take some sort of package and find another job (riskier.)

Date: 09-06-2013 15:48

That's a tough question. Will I be able to see the package they're offering before I decide? Probably not...

Date: 09-06-2013 15:51

Usually, packages are public, meaning everyone knows that you get something like two weeks of salary for every year you've been there or whatever. The rule is generally known. Ask around.

Date: 09-07-2013 09:17

Date: 09-07-2013 09:37

Glad they like it.

Date: 09-07-2013 09:37

Our cats: nothing.

Date: 09-07-2013 09:52

Date: 09-07-2013 10:16

This has to be the most overly complicated way to display that information.

Date: 09-07-2013 10:18

I love that guy had been running it from his cell phone.

What's the difference between the "spinning gold pattern" and "sparkling dancing lights"?

Date: 09-07-2013 10:24

Are you sure this isn't an article from The Onion?

Date: 09-07-2013 10:26

Ya got me. Say, Ansel will be staying at our condo, taking care of the cats, and stripping wallpaper while we're in MN. He'll get to two sets of fireworks and countless Pirate games.

Date: 09-07-2013 10:26

You'll have to show him this. You know, so he knows when the Pirates do whatever.

Date: 09-08-2013 16:32

Watching the layoff scene in Office Space and thinking of you.

Date: 09-08-2013 16:40

Make sure that Wenis report is set on auto-run.

Date: 09-09-2013 12:30

Any resume news? Also, did you find the email with changes to your cover note?

Date: 09-09-2013 13:46

No and no. I should be getting my loft resume today, right?

Date: 09-09-2013 13:48

Yes. Have you talked to HR yet?

Date: 09-09-2013 13:48

Nope. Manager cancelled our "normal" daily standup meeting today as well. Said they'd have more info tomorrow.

Date: 09-09-2013 13:50

But hell, I'll take as many delays as I can get. Still getting paid.

Date: 09-09-2013 13:50

Maybe I can start getting a new paycheck before the ones from AOL stop coming ;)

Date: 09-09-2013 14:14

That's the spirit!

Date: 09-09-2013 14:14

Just sent you cover comments on email.

Date: 09-09-2013 14:14

Also, is Hank dead?

Date: 09-09-2013 14:54

We haven't watched it yet!!!

Date: 09-09-2013 14:56

Well, believe me when I say I've hardly revealed anything. And don't read the Vulture link!

Date: 09-09-2013 14:56

Amazing episode.

Date: 09-09-2013 14:57

Also, I got your email, but I only see the attached resume edits. Did you edit the cover letter inline?

Date: 09-09-2013 15:00

Sorry. Just sent correct scans. I'd throw in a ping pong mention, too, since they mention it on their blog.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:25

Did you get my email?

Date: 09-09-2013 21:44

Yes. Sorry. We just got back after being out with friends. Did you watch Breaking Bad?

Date: 09-09-2013 21:44

Yes. Sorry. We just got back after being out with friends. Did you watch Breaking Bad?

Date: 09-09-2013 21:46

Yes. Quite the cliffhanger.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:46

Now read the Vulture article.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:46

Our the

Date: 09-09-2013 21:47

I thought it would've been better if Hank had gotten killed by the guys outside Jesse's GF's place.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:47

Our theory is Walt saves everyone by walking in front of Hank and Jesse. Bad guys need Walt to cook.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:47

And then I thought Walt would've realized that he could still place the blame on Hank once he got arrested.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:48

Our had him fired for false arrest.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:48

They still didn't have the money.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:49

No one does. And the bad guys don't know--yet--the money is there.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:50

Also, Walt's character should've let Jesse burn the money if Jesse agreed to forgive him.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:50

No. Walt wants the money for his family.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:50

Walt already had a successful car wash business that his wife and son could run by themselves.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:50

He didn't *need* it

Date: 09-09-2013 21:51

True. And I think Walt's smart enough not to put all his money in one place.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:51

And instead he's risking everything (including the money and his safety) to try to stop Jesse

Date: 09-09-2013 21:51


Date: 09-09-2013 21:52

It feels lazy.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:52

It was a genius move on Jesse's part to think of the plan to find it.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:52

Jesse and Hank's part.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:52

If you ignore the characters we've grown to love…

Date: 09-09-2013 21:53

It does't make sense why our characters are making these strange decisions.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:53

But, really. What else could happen? They're changing and changing fast.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:54

I didn't think Skyler would suggest killing Jesse.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:55

What else could happen if you're Vince Gilligan, I mean?

Date: 09-09-2013 21:55

Better options: A) Jesse should've killed Walt. B) Walt kills himself. C) Hank realizes he needs to cover for Walt to save himself and family.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:55

Walt needs to be dead at the end.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:56

Don't leave the that open-ended.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:56

All good options--and I still think the absolutely last scene will be Jesse confronted with the choice of killing Walt or walking away.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:57

It needs to end with no possibility of catching him, but no way for him to enjoy his winnings.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:57

Walt will be dead whether or not someone kills him.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:59

I think he'll have to use his money to buy Hank and Jesse's freedom from the bad guys.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:59

But we've already seen when Walt went back to his "old" house an days hi to the neighbor.

Date: 09-09-2013 21:59

I would also not like that ending. I want him to die but win.

Date: 09-09-2013 22:01

I don't want to see him get "bested" by anyone.

Date: 09-09-2013 22:01

Yes, but that may be a scene that takes place several hours or days before the end of the show.

Date: 09-09-2013 22:01

If he lives or gets caught I will be disappointed. If that makes sense.

Date: 09-09-2013 22:04


Date: 09-10-2013 07:04

Date: 09-10-2013 07:04

How much do you want that Christmas present on the left?

Date: 09-10-2013 12:06

My resume is only one page. I just dropped the second page of "skills". Check my test email again.

Date: 09-10-2013 12:10

You're right! Looks gr8! Will send a few minor changes now, in a second email.

Date: 09-10-2013 12:14

One thing I did notice about the resume was that some parts of are "clickable" and link to the URLs I have listed, but the clickable area doesn't line up with the actual links.

Date: 09-10-2013 12:15

That would be a good thing for Loft to fix. It's got a great look. Good choice.

Date: 09-10-2013 12:24

Just emailed comments.

Date: 09-10-2013 13:29

Why isn't Apple live streaming their iPhone 5(C/S) announcement!?

Date: 09-10-2013 13:29

Good question. I do believe it's live-blogged somewhere.

Date: 09-10-2013 13:29

I have to watch a live blog. Bullshit. Steve, we all miss you.

Date: 09-10-2013 13:30

Tell me the highlights. I don't care about fingerprint security, and I don't know why anyone else does.

Date: 09-10-2013 13:29

It's being live-blogged EVERYWHERE.

Date: 09-10-2013 13:30

They just announce the iPhone 5C.

Date: 09-10-2013 13:31

It's got a plastic backing and is very colorful. I assume it's geared towards people like Cameron (cheaper)

Date: 09-10-2013 13:31

$99 for the 16GB model w/ 2yr contract

Date: 09-10-2013 13:33

They DID say they were announcing two different iPhone models today. So we're still waiting for the 5S

Date: 09-10-2013 13:33

I want $99 with no contract. Like colorful, tho.

Date: 09-10-2013 13:33

Haha, "no contract," good luck with that!

Date: 09-10-2013 13:34

Are you work-free from a Winamp point of view?

Date: 09-10-2013 13:33

iPhone 5S just announced!!!

Date: 09-10-2013 13:42

I really dislike how light weight the 5 is.

Date: 09-10-2013 13:42

Date: 09-10-2013 13:43

Date: 09-10-2013 13:47

Better battery life than the 5.

Date: 09-10-2013 13:48

Better camera with a f2.2 aperture and 15% larger sensor.

Date: 09-10-2013 13:48

That's exciting

Date: 09-10-2013 13:49

Seriously, megapixels mean shit. It's all about the size of the sensor.

Date: 09-10-2013 13:50

Especially for low light photos. The bigger the sensor and smaller the aperture, the quicker the camera can get the amount of light it needs.

Date: 09-10-2013 13:53

Date: 09-10-2013 13:53

I'm melting.

Date: 09-10-2013 13:54

Wait till MN.

Date: 09-10-2013 13:54

When is HR talk?

Date: 09-10-2013 13:55

Had a meeting today (not with HR) and they said we should expect to talk with HR "later this week, probably Thursday."

Date: 09-10-2013 14:00

The Home button on the 5S is sapphire and won't scratch.

Date: 09-10-2013 14:01

You can use the finger print scanner to unlock your phone and authorize iTunes purchases.

Date: 09-10-2013 14:02

Zzzzzzz. An actual sapphire? Camera upgrade sounds nice.

Date: 09-10-2013 14:03

Did you sent changes to Loft?

Date: 09-10-2013 14:03

No, not yet. There are multiple changes I need them to make so I'm trying to get all of them in an email that makes sense.

Date: 09-10-2013 14:05

Preorders start on Friday! They better have WiFi at the AmericInn

Date: 09-10-2013 14:07

Uh, no. But I do have all the reservations ready to print out.

Date: 09-10-2013 14:08

I'd accept the invitation, too, just to be on the safe side.

Date: 09-10-2013 14:08

"The link you just clicked on is expired."

Date: 09-10-2013 14:12

Just got a meeting invite for tomorrow morning titled, "Applying fir AOL internal jobs". If I don't apply for any AOL jobs I still get the separation package, right? And if I do apply, will I still get the same salary?

Also just got a call from TELsystems (new person) saying they had a remote contracting position available at AARP. Said I was interested.

Date: 09-10-2013 17:13

Cool. If AOL can't place you in a "similar" job (function/salary), they owe you an offer of the same package they offered everyone else. If they have jobs and you don't apply, they may not have to offer you a separation package (not sure.) Better to go through the process, find out your choices, and see what happens. If they offer you a different job function, a different salary, or a different location, you have the right to say no, I don't want different, and then they owe you the package.

Date: 09-10-2013 17:46

Also, try going to on your phone, click to go to the full site, then click About Us. Looks like they could use your help.

Date: 09-10-2013 17:47

Date: 09-11-2013 12:37

Nothing really. Just learned more about their "eMobility" program.

Do you agree?

Check out this article from USA TODAY:

Jobs' ghost finally leaves Apple

Date: 09-12-2013 09:00

So what is this US Airways "check-in" thing? I though I scanned the reservation thing inside the Airport to get the tickets.

Date: 09-12-2013 09:02

You can do either. Either print out boarding passes now and go straight to Security. Or go to the USAirways desk or kiosk when you arrive and check in with the reservation number there.

Date: 09-12-2013 09:02

US Airways doesn't seem to support iOS's Passbook. Lame.

Date: 09-12-2013 09:02

Super lame.

Date: 09-12-2013 09:04

Definitely lame. USAirways not known to be on the cutting edge of anything.

Date: 09-12-2013 09:04

I assume you're driving to Reagan airport. Give yourself lots of time to park, etc.

Date: 09-12-2013 09:05

You should be at the gate at least 45 mins before flight.

Date: 09-12-2013 09:05

We're planning to leave for the airport around 6:00.

Date: 09-12-2013 09:05


Date: 09-12-2013 09:06

Can't wait to see you. We had dinner with Di, Nick, Peter and Yeimi in Chicago last night. We missed you guys.

Date: 09-12-2013 09:23

Did you get your resume off to that company?

Don't worry. They won't even take off if there's a problemo.

Date: 09-12-2013 16:47

Good thing we weren't flying out of BWI because they just closed it.

Date: 09-12-2013 16:49

Yikes. Things will be better by 8:50.

Date: 09-12-2013 16:50

Yeah, kinda glad the storm hit now rather than later.

Date: 09-12-2013 16:51

All clear at 9 pm. 5% chance of rain. Even if it's delayed, all you have to do is wait it out, get to Minneapolis then collapse in bed at your hotel.

Date: 09-12-2013 19:00

Lots of delays. The line for customer service is about half the length of the terminal.

Date: 09-12-2013 19:02

K. Let me know when you know something.

Date: 09-12-2013 19:23

So what time do we need to be there tomorrow? What are the activities?

Date: 09-12-2013 19:27

Ideally, you'd be at the lake by 2. It's about 4 hours from Minneapolis. We'll visit there all afternoon, then we're leaving the lake to have an immediate-family-only dinner.

Date: 09-12-2013 19:27

What's going on at the airport?

Date: 09-12-2013 19:41

Delayed until 9:30. Better than all the people whose flights got cancelled.

Date: 09-12-2013 19:41

Can I go back out to smoke a cigarette and then come back through security?

Date: 09-12-2013 19:43

Poor baby. Yes, if you think you have enough time to go through the line again.

Date: 09-12-2013 19:43

Is there a drug store and does it have Nicorette?

Date: 09-12-2013 19:45

It literally took 5 minutes to get through security. And the security check point is like 15 ft from our gate.

Date: 09-12-2013 19:45

Nothing like Pittsburgh airport.

Date: 09-12-2013 20:40

I just peed next to Senitor Mitch McConnell!

Date: 09-12-2013 20:41

God, I hope you were in a men's room!

Date: 09-12-2013 20:44


Date: 09-12-2013 22:03

Text me when you've landed.


Date: 09-13-2013 01:13

Landed. It was almost impossible to find the car rental place. We're now waiting for a second shuttle to pick us up.

Date: 09-13-2013 12:10

Two hours away

Date: 09-13-2013 12:16

Woot woot! Do you need directions to Grandma's?

Date: 09-13-2013 12:17

No! I know how to get to the lake.

Date: 09-13-2013 12:39

Grandma lives on Boe's Dr,
Pelican Rapids, MN 56572

Date: 09-13-2013 12:52

Is that a different place than the place we've always gone? I know how to get to the lake.

Date: 09-13-2013 12:52

No. Same place. I sent it just in case.

Date: 09-13-2013 12:54

Remember to slow down as you drive through each little town.

Arriving at 10:20.

Date: 09-15-2013 14:09

Don't forget to fill up the car right before you drop it off!

Date: 09-15-2013 16:18

Safely at our gate.

Date: 09-15-2013 16:19

In record time!

Date: 09-15-2013 16:20

Yeah, could've stayed until 12:30. Oh well, better safe than sorry.

Date: 09-15-2013 16:30

You're your father's son. But it really is better to get there early and relax.

Date: 09-15-2013 20:08

Landed safely. Well… the amateur pilots bounced the back wheels a few times before putting it down.

Date: 09-15-2013 20:12

Glad you're safe. Thank you for letting me know. We're in the same boat as you on Breaking Bad this week. Itunes or tomorrow.

Date: 09-15-2013 20:13

How soon after the episode ends does it appear on iTunes?

Date: 09-15-2013 20:13

Please say 60 seconds.

Date: 09-15-2013 20:51

Not sure. If I were a betting man I'd guess 4:00AM the next morning.

Date: 09-16-2013 09:37

We watched Breaking Bad at 6 am. Horrifying.

Date: 09-16-2013 10:12

Good horrifying or disappointing horrifying?

Date: 09-16-2013 10:27

Good. My eyes were covered half the time-yet almost no onscreen violence. Best to read the Wikipedia entry on the poem Ozymandias before viewing. Gah.

Date: 09-16-2013 12:48

Ok. The last thing I saw was Walt getting driven away with his bags and barrel. Was that the finale?

Date: 09-16-2013 12:49

After he dropped off the baby

Date: 09-16-2013 12:49

It was the end of thst episode, not the end of the series. But what brings Walt back???

Date: 09-16-2013 12:49


Date: 09-16-2013 12:50

Saving him or killing him?

Date: 09-16-2013 12:50

Save him

Date: 09-16-2013 12:50

Maybe Jesse kills Skyler.

Date: 09-16-2013 12:50

Or Flynn or the baby or all of them.

Date: 09-16-2013 12:50

How? He's locked up like a meth slave.

Date: 09-16-2013 12:52

Who knows?

Date: 09-16-2013 12:53

So far it seems like I'm going to be disappointed with the end.

Date: 09-16-2013 12:55

That entire episode was like, "here are many decisions most of these characters wouldn't make."

Date: 09-16-2013 12:56

Walt, yes. Hank, no. Hank's wife, no. Skyler, no. Flynn, no. Or do you disagree?

Date: 09-16-2013 12:57

Wasn't it heartbreaking to watch?

Date: 09-16-2013 12:57

Walt giving up Jesse. Walt burying all the money in the same place. Walt giving those guys the exact coordinates of the money.

Yes mostly just Walt and Jesse.

Date: 09-16-2013 13:01

Walt stealing the baby. Walt going back to the house. Walt asking if the police were there. Walt using the cell phone. Walt shaking the guy's hand and saying they're square. Walt begging for Hank's life.

Date: 09-16-2013 13:02

I agree.

Date: 09-16-2013 13:06

Where was Heisenberg when they were in the desert?!?

Date: 09-16-2013 13:06

Riddle me that

Date: 09-16-2013 13:06

He was hiding behind lazy writing if you ask me.

Date: 09-16-2013 13:09

I am sorry to lose Walter as I man I can cheer for. I'm afraid the show's going to end with no one I can cheer for.

Date: 09-16-2013 13:10

Or with the only person I might cheer--Jesse--dead.

Date: 09-16-2013 13:12

Date: 09-16-2013 14:12

Date: 09-16-2013 16:14

Glad you're not flying through Reagan Nat'l today.

Date: 09-16-2013 16:13


Date: 09-17-2013 08:50

High school kids hit it big with coding academy. Thought of you.

Date: 09-18-2013 18:56

Did you install iOS 7 yet?

Date: 09-18-2013 18:57

No. How is it? We're in that horrible last hour of the drive into Chicago.

Date: 09-18-2013 19:03

I mean, I've hate the beta for it for awhile, but they appear to have released a number of updates for specific apps themselves. It's nice though. It took a lot of attempts to get my phone to activate after it installed though (so many people are trying to activate).

Date: 09-18-2013 19:04

I'm told by an artist to stick with the grey/white palette.

Date: 09-18-2013 19:17

Palette for what?

Date: 09-18-2013 19:20

Background or something?

Date: 09-18-2013 19:20

Date: 09-19-2013 09:33

Date: 09-19-2013 10:24

I see you got that installed quickly :)

Date: 09-19-2013 10:45

Cam helped. I did it last night in the hotel. Daddy was asleep.

Date: 09-19-2013 10:45

I like that they sort pics into years.

Date: 09-19-2013 10:47

Are you going to share my stream?

Date: 09-19-2013 21:14

So I might be coming to visit Ansel this weekend. Will you be in town?

Date: 09-19-2013 21:27

No. Heading to Philly early Saturday morning to drop Cam off. Come when it's convenient, but if you come the weekend after this one, you can see the. 40 ft rubber duck.

Date: 09-19-2013 21:28

Date: 09-20-2013 09:11

Trying to order iPhone. What are the last 4 digits of your SS and I assume 15228 is still the zip code associated with your account? If it's changed please give me that as well.

Date: 09-20-2013 09:12

4882 is me. 15211 is our condo. Think 15228 is still right .

Date: 09-20-2013 09:13

Thanks. It looks like I may be waiting for awhile for the iPhone... Why doesn't Apple just produce 80% of the total number of iPhones it sold last year before the release?!

Date: 09-20-2013 09:15

That way you don't run out like shitty companies do

Date: 09-20-2013 10:08

Are you coming this weekend?

Date: 09-20-2013 10:08

BTW, Teri's in Pgh this weekend.

Date: 09-20-2013 10:10

In fact, if you got here by dinner time tonight, you could have dinner with us, Cam and Teri.

Date: 09-20-2013 11:23

Also, Ansel will be at our house by 2 pm on Sat. He's warching pets while we're in Philly and stripping wallpaper.

Date: 09-20-2013 13:12

Date: 09-20-2013 13:12

I'll need you to use your eligibility to get my new phone.

Date: 09-20-2013 13:12

Also the zip code IS 15211 now.

Date: 09-20-2013 13:14

Maybe you can switch our eligibility through AT&T. Then I can purchase myself.

Date: 09-20-2013 13:21

At Shop n Save now. Tell me what to do and I'll do it at 2. Are you coming in?

Date: 09-20-2013 13:21


Date: 09-20-2013 13:22

Calling AT&T is probably the easiest. Just switch our eligibility.

Date: 09-20-2013 13:22

Today? In time for din-din tonight?

Date: 09-20-2013 13:23


Date: 09-20-2013 13:32

Woo hoo ! A surprise for Teri!

Date: 09-20-2013 14:48

Why is Teri in town anyway?

Date: 09-20-2013 14:48

Let me know if you had any success with AT&T.

Date: 09-20-2013 14:59

Her mom was operated on for an aortic aneurism Wed.

Date: 09-20-2013 14:59

All okay.

Date: 09-20-2013 15:02

Hmm. Still says I have to wait until next year to get the 32GB black one for $299.

Date: 09-21-2013 09:36

Call if you're awake.

Date: 09-21-2013 11:40

8 pm, CBS, Sunday--Emmys

Date: 09-21-2013 12:16

Date: 09-21-2013 12:38

Thank y

Date: 09-21-2013 12:38


Date: 09-22-2013 12:54

Are you up? Call if you're not driving.

Date: 09-22-2013 12:54

When convenient.

Date: 09-22-2013 13:16

Oh yeah, can you order that 32GB black iPhone 5S for me? Or maybe I'll just order it for your phone number when I get home.

Date: 09-22-2013 16:40

Are you home safe?

Date: 09-22-2013 17:05


Date: 09-22-2013 17:06

Give our love to darling Jean.

Date: 09-22-2013 17:07

--and the kitties, of course.

Date: 09-22-2013 18:08

Did you watch the Key and Peele video I sent on email?

Date: 09-23-2013 12:49

Date: 09-25-2013 10:53

Seriously, how'd you get that email?

Date: 09-25-2013 10:53


Date: 09-25-2013 10:59

Must have been. Was I hacked? Is someone phishing? Is it really AOL?

Date: 09-25-2013 12:08

Yup, really was from AOL. She said she's not sure how it got sent to you though.

Date: 09-25-2013 12:13

Are you moving to NYC?

Date: 09-25-2013 12:44


Date: 09-25-2013 12:44

No. Wasn't for me.

Date: 09-25-2013 12:45

Wow. That really is weird.

Date: 09-26-2013 11:04

Date: 09-26-2013 11:04


Date: 09-26-2013 11:04


Date: 09-26-2013 11:04

Having my meeting with HR this afternoon.

Date: 09-26-2013 11:16

Let me know how it goes.

Date: 09-29-2013 22:59

Great and perfectly fitting series ending episode on Breaking Bad. You'll love it.

Date: 09-30-2013 15:56

Date: 09-30-2013 15:56

Date: 09-30-2013 15:57

Date: 09-30-2013 15:57

Date: 09-30-2013 15:57

Daddy did the orange highlighting.

Date: 09-30-2013 15:57


Date: 09-30-2013 15:58

Told you it's not finding a job that's difficult, it's finding one that I want to do every day.

Date: 09-30-2013 16:04

Today is the 32nd anniversary of Daddy and my first date. We're heading out to eat Ethiopian. Eager to hear what you and Jean think of Breaking Bad.

Date: 09-30-2013 19:04

Walter died. Jesse got away. The police didn't take his money. Perfect.

Date: 09-30-2013 19:12

I thought it was a perfect ending. And may I add that I called it a while ago. I thought the only appropriate way for the show to end would be for Jesse to have a chance to kill Walter but for Jessie to decide he didn't want to do it. Jesse was the emotional heart of the show. Great to see him kill Todd, howver.

Date: 09-30-2013 19:13

How did you interpret Jesse's scream at the end? Emotionally, I mean?

Date: 09-30-2013 19:13

And no one got the money--the other $70 million.

Date: 10-02-2013 10:21

Your book was on BBC?!

Date: 10-02-2013 10:49

In the background, I guess. Cool, huh?

Date: 10-02-2013 10:50

What are you doing about AOL?

Date: 10-02-2013 10:50

Everything I can…?

Date: 10-02-2013 10:51

Two months? Five months?

Date: 10-02-2013 10:55

I'm waiting to get the package in the mail before bringing it up.

Date: 10-02-2013 10:58

Tell them you want another week to decide since you haven't gotten the package yet and you need to have your attorney review everything. Make sure they document their approval of the extension in writing. An email is fine. This lays the groundwork for them to feel a tiny bit legally threatened when you ask for five months.

Date: 10-02-2013 11:13


Date: 10-02-2013 11:57

Wow, that got their attention. I've emailed you the package they're offering.

Date: 10-02-2013 12:15

Okay, I'll read it over later. In meeting. Tomorrow morning, send her this email:

"I have initially reviewed the package you sent, and I would still like my deadline to respond to be extended given that the PDF wasn't in my possession until yesterday. I'm not trying to be a jerk, but this is pretty important.

I'm requesting five months of salary as severance from AOL, to bring my term of employment with them to at least one full year. In addition, I would like my healthcare benefits to be extended for five months as well. I came here at the end of February, 2013 in good faith, expecting a long career at AOL. I left a good job, believing I'd be here for the rest of my life. Given the economy, it will likely take considerably longer than two months to find another position.

Thank you,

James W. Cready"

Date: 10-02-2013 12:21

Thank you thank you thank you!

Date: 10-02-2013 19:38

Did you the bit at the end of the interview with Vince Gilligan at the end of Monday's Colbert, with him in the basement?

Date: 10-02-2013 20:48

So my bottom two back teeth are like black on the outer sides. I'm going to need to go see a dentist, like tomorrow. I feel so stressed out already and now I'm going to need to get two teeth removed…

Date: 10-02-2013 20:49

They don't hurt, but I'm sure they're rotting from the insides or something terrible.

Date: 10-02-2013 20:49

Do you have dental insurance ?

Date: 10-02-2013 20:50

All will be okay. I'm glad you're not in pain.

Date: 10-02-2013 20:50

Yes, but I've never used it before.

Date: 10-02-2013 20:50

I need to find the card online somewhere.

Date: 10-02-2013 20:51

It's not the same card as my health insurance, right?

Date: 10-02-2013 20:51

They can do a million things with teeth. Go now. ASAP. Before the insurance runs out.

Date: 10-02-2013 20:51


Date: 10-02-2013 20:52

Ask that friendly HR person.

Date: 10-02-2013 20:52

But don't worry. About anything.

Date: 10-02-2013 20:54

I'm worried more about how much things like this stress me out. Which, in turn, stresses me out even more.

Date: 10-02-2013 20:55

Are you papering the IT world with your resume?

Date: 10-02-2013 20:55

That's not helping -_-

Date: 10-02-2013 20:57

Did you see the Vince Gilligan thing?

Date: 10-02-2013 20:57

That'll cheer you up.

Date: 10-03-2013 11:55

Sent that email this morning around 10:00. Still no response.

Date: 10-03-2013 12:30

That's good. It means she doesn't have the authority to say no immediately. Or, better, it might mean the issue you identify is one they know they are vulnerable on, and she's smart enough to raise it to the attorneys.

Date: 10-03-2013 12:49

Phone interview with Viget went well. 45 minutes long. Unfortunately she said that they probably wouldn't be able to match my current salary ;(

Date: 10-03-2013 12:50

Are you also looking within AOL?

Date: 10-03-2013 12:51

Yes, but I have yet to hear back from any of the jobs I applied for.

Date: 10-03-2013 12:52

Hm. Is Viget moving forward, or is it more like, okay, can't pay you that much, bye?

Date: 10-03-2013 12:53

She asked if I was flexible, I said what I was currently making and said I was a little flexible.

Date: 10-03-2013 12:53

They are moving forward.

Date: 10-03-2013 13:44

Are my emailed links useful?

Date: 10-03-2013 15:37

HR lady wants to talk on the phone.

Date: 10-03-2013 15:39

Date: 10-03-2013 15:41

That's okay. Tell her you're writing everything down so you can review it. Just listen. Don't commit. Even if she says no extra severance. She's just the messenger.

Date: 10-03-2013 15:41

What do I say then?

Date: 10-03-2013 15:43

You're a neutral, interested, polite note taker. The facts are: 1. You came to AOL in good faith, expecting a long career. 2. You left a good job. 3. It will likely take longer than 2 months to find a new job.

Date: 10-03-2013 15:41

When I answer the phone I'm supposed to say "I'm writing everything down"?

Date: 10-03-2013 15:44

Something like (with a laugh), "Hang on, let me write this down so I understand it."

Date: 10-03-2013 15:47

Then at end of call, repeat what you understand (e.g., "Okay, you're saying you can't give me more because that would violate the terms of the separation, right?" Then, "Okay. I got it. Let me get back to my attorney and I'll let you know." Calm, friendly, confident.

Date: 10-03-2013 15:48

And then... What do we do after I hang up?

Date: 10-03-2013 15:49

Well, that is the question. I can talk to Mary Nell again, or we can fold.

Date: 10-03-2013 15:50

Slip in non-chalantly that you've applied for a number of jobs at AOL and haven't heard anything, showing you're doing everything you can.

Date: 10-03-2013 15:51

Ask if she can be of any help. She may be motivated to pull some strings for you.

Date: 10-03-2013 15:52

I know this isn't uour favorite thing. You'll be fine. Calm, polite, confident, deserving.

Date: 10-03-2013 15:52

I also just received an email from some recruiter inside AOL (not from a job I applied to)

Date: 10-03-2013 15:52

Well, well, well...

Date: 10-03-2013 15:52


Date: 10-03-2013 16:07

Okay, she said no.

Date: 10-03-2013 16:08

Any other info?

Date: 10-03-2013 16:07

She said she would "love to help in any other way" but that they "would not be extending my severance past 2 months"

Date: 10-03-2013 16:09

I re-iterated that I had left a good job to come to aol for a long time and that I'd only been there 6 months

Date: 10-03-2013 16:10

Good job, Wy.

Date: 10-03-2013 16:13

What do you think?

Date: 10-03-2013 16:13

And what's the other AOL job?

Date: 10-03-2013 16:16

If she'd help in any other way, perhaps she could check on the status of your application in the other AOL departments.

Date: 10-03-2013 17:02

I'm hopping in the shower. I talked to Mary Nell. She said The package you been offered is a good one. She suggested that you check either with the HR lady or with one of your colleagues to find out what the rule was about weeks of severance. For example, did people get one week for every year they'd worked there? What was the rule? Because you can say that you should get credit for every year you worked there including as a contractor. But you may have already gotten credit for those years. K?

Date: 10-04-2013 23:01

Soooo cut!!

Date: 10-05-2013 19:23

Date: 10-05-2013 19:28

Close. Same shot, but from inside the kitchen.

Date: 10-05-2013 19:30

Date: 10-05-2013 19:30

Perfect! Love you.

Date: 10-05-2013 19:31

Do I get to know why?

Date: 10-05-2013 19:38


Date: 10-05-2013 19:40

Are you deciding if there's enough space to have a small wedding ceremony here?

Date: 10-05-2013 19:40

There is.

Date: 10-05-2013 19:42


Date: 10-08-2013 08:59

What happened at the dentist?

Date: 10-08-2013 10:44

They lost the appointment I made through their website, so I had to make another one.

Date: 10-08-2013 11:19


Date: 10-09-2013 00:01

Date: 10-09-2013 00:03

This is what keeps you up at night, eh?

Date: 10-09-2013 00:04

Soooooo cute!

Date: 10-09-2013 13:59

:D I might be getting my humidifier after all!

Date: 10-09-2013 14:02

Just imagine if you'd put that determination into your English homework.

Date: 10-09-2013 14:03

If not knowing English made it difficult to breath then it might have.

Date: 10-09-2013 14:03


Date: 10-09-2013 14:03


Date: 10-09-2013 14:03

I kinda know English anyways.

Date: 10-11-2013 21:45

What are you guys up to tonight?

Date: 10-17-2013 17:11

Dentist said he couldn't believe that I hadn't been to a dentist in 7 years or that I was a regular smoker. I do have to get some fillings though. Gums were perfect.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:13

What about the black teeth?

Date: 10-17-2013 17:13

Just needed cleaned. All better now.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:14

Date: 10-17-2013 17:14

I'm glad. Get the fillings asap!

Date: 10-17-2013 17:15

^to be cleaned. Or ^cleaning

Date: 10-17-2013 17:16

He said that the braces caused some issues.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:16

Really? Like what?

Date: 10-17-2013 17:17

Blunt roots. Not sure exactly, but he said it wouldn't really be an issue until I got much older.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:17

Sounds kinda sexy.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:18

Did you get your teeth cleaned today then?

Date: 10-17-2013 17:18


Date: 10-17-2013 17:18

I'm in NYC with Teri.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:18

I was there for two hours. Ugh.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:18


Date: 10-17-2013 17:19

Did they have to use a pick and a hammer?

Date: 10-17-2013 17:23

They took x-rays, then cleaned with what was basically a pressure washer for teeth, then cleaned again with the metal pick. Finally I had the exam with the dentist where he noted all my chipped teeth (due to grinding teeth). He checked my gums, my jaw, my bite, etc.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:24

What about the grinding?

Date: 10-17-2013 17:26

He said they could make something for me. I did learn something interesting though, the nerves in your back molars let your brain know that it can clench harder when they feel pressure (basically when your jaw is closed). So they will make something that prevents the back molars from touching each other and then my brain won't have the urge to clench harder. :)

Date: 10-17-2013 17:27

Wow. That's cool. Is he doing it now? While you're covered?

Date: 10-17-2013 17:27

Unfortunately he won't be making that for me until after I get the fillings ;(

Date: 10-17-2013 17:28

Fortunately I think I will be getting an offer from Viget in the next few days.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:28

And I'm certain you're in a big hurry for those.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:28

Oh! How did the test go?

Date: 10-17-2013 17:30

Very well apparently. I then had to do a "live" test where their FED (front-end development) director had me share my screen with me and solve problems in front of him.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:30


Date: 10-17-2013 17:30

I finished all the problems in half the time he allotted.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:30

He was impressed.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:31

What next? Leave you in the wilderness of Canada with nothing but a hatchet?

Date: 10-17-2013 17:30

ahhh, Hatchet.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:30

I'd give up at that point.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:32

Maybe you could reprogram the plane's consol to be a cellular tower.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:32

Yeah, no he basically ended the interview by saying I should expect an offer from HR by the end of the week. The interview was Tuesday.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:34

Wow. Congrats, Wy. How do they dress there?

Date: 10-17-2013 17:34

Cas, I hope.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:34

you bet

Date: 10-17-2013 17:34

Do they mind hats?

Date: 10-17-2013 17:34

Date: 10-17-2013 17:34

I don't think I'll have any issues fitting in :D

Date: 10-17-2013 17:39

Oh, God. Do these people think they'll procreate?

Date: 10-17-2013 17:41

Date: 10-17-2013 17:41

If this guy can pull it off, then there's hope for the rest of us.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:43

Oh, when are we going to get to see all the professional photos from the lake?

Date: 10-17-2013 17:47

Check with Diane. She's the point person.

Date: 10-17-2013 17:55

Oh, and did you hear that Ansel got a job offer today? He said he starts on the 18th of next month.

Date: 10-17-2013 18:04


Date: 10-17-2013 18:04

He didn't say. I asked though. Hopefully close.

Date: 10-17-2013 18:04

Pgh? DC? NYC?

Date: 10-17-2013 18:08

Date: 10-17-2013 18:08


Date: 10-17-2013 18:10

Might you be able to pop up to Philly for an overnight with your sister before starting your new job?

Date: 10-17-2013 18:09


Date: 10-18-2013 12:14

Looks like Viget is going to be offering me ~$74k. Ansel is taking off for Mexico next weekend so I will probably be coming up tomorrow to catch him before he leaves.

Date: 10-18-2013 12:23

Will he be working in Mexico? I'm confused. Daddy will be happy to see and take you out. He's alone. I'm in NY with Teri.

Date: 10-18-2013 12:23

No, he's just making a trip to Mexico before his job in NYC starts.

Date: 10-18-2013 12:28

Don't worry, I will also be in town next weekend, too. Jean took off that Friday so we'll be there the whole weekend.

Date: 10-18-2013 15:05


Date: 10-21-2013 17:04

Date: 10-21-2013 17:07

Date: 10-21-2013 19:47

Home safe.

Date: 10-21-2013 19:48

You're a sweetie. I wish I was home safe. I'm on the Megabus, four hours from home...

Date: 10-21-2013 21:42

Date: 10-24-2013 13:28

Date: 10-24-2013 14:01

I don't see Wyatt anywhere.

Date: 10-24-2013 14:12

And that's why I picked it.

Date: 10-25-2013 16:26

Can you buy a tube of Biotien toothpaste while you there?

Date: 10-25-2013 16:26

Er, second choice?

Date: 10-25-2013 16:29

Uh, something for dry mouth. Toothpaste, mouthwash, spray, whatever.

Date: 10-26-2013 15:07

Where's my boy?

Date: 10-26-2013 16:15

Playing pool in Dormont.

Date: 10-26-2013 17:25

In case anyone asks, Kitten and Squawk are your cats visiting with you from DC, okay?

Date: 10-26-2013 17:47


Date: 10-26-2013 22:42

Can you have breakfast with us tomorrow?

Date: 10-26-2013 22:46

Yes, that'd be great.

Date: 10-26-2013 22:49

Please invite Jean if that's convenient.

Date: 10-27-2013 09:11

Hey. I want to get my tires rotated so can I meet you guys for breakfast?

Date: 10-27-2013 09:17

Yes. Shall we pick you up at NTB on Greentree?

Date: 10-27-2013 18:37

Hey, I'm on my way back.

Date: 10-27-2013 18:38


Date: 10-27-2013 18:38

Are you in the middle of dinner, don't want to interrupt?

Date: 10-27-2013 18:39

No , watching game .

Date: 10-28-2013 09:35

Date: 10-28-2013 11:21

I've been inside the Liberty tunnel for the past 20 minutes. Just finally got out.

Date: 10-28-2013 11:21


Date: 10-28-2013 11:23

Fuck this city.

Date: 10-28-2013 11:25

I could've saved an hour just by taking Fort Pitt.

Date: 10-28-2013 11:28

Hope the rest of your trip is smooth. So nice having breakfast with you. Love you, Boy.

Date: 10-28-2013 16:15

Date: 10-28-2013 19:29

Home safe?

Date: 10-28-2013 19:49


Date: 10-28-2013 19:58

Date: 10-28-2013 19:58

If I saw you here I wouldn't have to ask.

Date: 10-29-2013 15:55

Date: 10-29-2013 19:53

Date: 10-29-2013 20:04

Awwww! I love you guys.

Date: 11-01-2013 13:14

Date: 11-06-2013 23:19

Date: 11-06-2013 23:19

Is this yours?

Date: 11-06-2013 23:20


Date: 11-06-2013 23:22

K, back to the laundry room it goes.

Date: 11-08-2013 11:27

Call me when you can. Nothng urgent. Just want to say hello.

Date: 11-08-2013 16:05

Date: 11-08-2013 16:05

Check out new gym.

Date: 11-11-2013 07:34

Does this ring true?

Date: 11-11-2013 19:27

Yes. Pretty much.

Date: 11-12-2013 15:01

What's this I hear about my son and Philadelphia?

Date: 11-12-2013 15:07

Good brother, good son.

Date: 11-12-2013 15:10

Yeah, I tried getting you guys out of it but she seems to prefer all of us be there :)

Date: 11-12-2013 15:14

Well, she also told me (excitedly ), she will be spending the day alone with you on Sunday.

Date: 11-13-2013 07:46

Date: 11-14-2013 08:01

Date: 11-15-2013 07:42

Date: 11-16-2013 10:13

Boy, when will we see you today?

Date: 11-17-2013 09:53

So nice to see you, Boy! You're a good brother! Is Cam even up?

Date: 11-18-2013 21:19

What is the name of the app that lets you watch the kitties when you're away from home?

Date: 11-21-2013 18:40!t=jo&jid=32110 I wonder if they’d consider me for this position ;)

Date: 11-21-2013 18:42


Date: 11-21-2013 18:43

Tell Jean to look at Rue21.

Date: 11-21-2013 18:43

Also, there are houses for sale in Mt. Washington.

Date: 11-21-2013 18:43

I know, right? And it’s the exact same position I’m going to be interviewing for out in Mountain View.

Date: 11-21-2013 18:44

I applied for it just in case.

Date: 11-21-2013 18:53

Date: 11-21-2013 19:42

What a concise URL!

Date: 11-21-2013 19:43

You know those crazy front-end developers.

Date: 11-21-2013 19:59

Did you watch The Daily Show from last night?

Date: 11-21-2013 19:59

With Bill Cosby?

Date: 11-21-2013 20:00

We just watched Santorum on Colbert.

Date: 11-21-2013 19:59

No, more recent than that.

Date: 11-21-2013 19:59

The one that aired yesterday.

Date: 11-21-2013 20:00

We'll watch it now.

Date: 11-21-2013 20:01

Uh oh. It didn't record.

Date: 11-21-2013 20:01

Did you watch the one I told you about in Philadelphia? The pizza one?

Date: 11-21-2013 20:01

Yep. Saw Jon's pizza rant.

Date: 11-21-2013 20:02

Stuffed pizza is still better.

Date: 11-21-2013 20:01

I'll send you a link to the segment from last night. He "apologizes" for his rant.

Date: 11-21-2013 20:04

It’s the whole first half of the episode.

Date: 11-21-2013 20:15

We watched. It was funny. Chicago's is still better--stuffed, that is. I don't love deep dish. And, frankly, Campiti's is better than all of it.

Date: 11-21-2013 20:16

I think you (along with all other parties) are a little biased.

Date: 11-21-2013 20:17

We're watching Unnecessary Muffness now.

Date: 11-21-2013 20:23

I think you’d like the videos that Big Cat Rescue uploads:

Date: 11-21-2013 20:31

Sooo cute!

Date: 11-21-2013 20:31

We watched the mirror one, too.

Date: 11-21-2013 20:31

On Chromecast. Do you have Chromecast?

Date: 11-21-2013 20:33

Better. We've got AirPlay.

Date: 11-22-2013 17:06

She said the single page PDF is the only documentation for their benefits.

Date: 11-22-2013 17:08

The offer letter also said I had seven days to return it, but she is pressing me to sign it ASAP. Which just feels shady to me.

Date: 11-22-2013 17:10

The benefits look fine.

Date: 11-22-2013 17:10

Tell her you need the weekend to review everything but you're very excited about the offer.

Date: 11-22-2013 17:11

I asked her to get me a written email from someone whom legally represents the company to explain what the Profit Sharing Plan entailed.

Date: 11-22-2013 17:12

Before you say yes, you're going to have to think of reasons why you will need a couple of pre-planned days off. (Google) Maybe a dental procedure?

Date: 11-22-2013 17:13

Good on the request. But, honestly, I think everything looks okay. Google the recruiter and the company. If there are any horror stories you'll find them.

Date: 11-22-2013 17:14

Also, find someone on LinkedIn who works there and ask about the company. Plus, what's the risk? If you start working there and don't likevit, quit. Just keep your job searching active.

Date: 11-22-2013 17:17

This looks good:,18.htm

Date: 11-22-2013 17:20

Very reassuring. Excellent. I like Beer Fridays.

Date: 11-22-2013 17:24

Tell her you're very excited, though. She needs something to report back to the company.

Date: 11-22-2013 17:26

Also, you'll want to confirm you're allowed to contribute to a 401k even if the match is a bonus and not guaranteed.

Date: 11-22-2013 17:27


Date: 11-22-2013 17:38

Also, can I get your amazon prime login? Or can you order something for me?

Date: 11-22-2013 17:38

Date: 11-22-2013 17:39

I think I changed the pw to January17

Date: 11-22-2013 17:39

Date: 11-22-2013 17:57

Is Jean red wine or white wine?

Date: 11-22-2013 18:32

White (unfortunately). We can get wine though.

Date: 11-22-2013 18:35

I like both.

Date: 11-22-2013 18:35

You'll do wine, appetizers, right?

Date: 11-22-2013 18:35


Date: 11-22-2013 21:07

Date: 11-23-2013 19:52

We're watching The Hunger Games now. To be prepared. Are you prepared?

Date: 11-25-2013 08:45

Call me this morning, k?

Date: 11-25-2013 14:31

Date: 11-25-2013 14:47

Check out this article from USA TODAY:

Date: 11-25-2013 17:38

Hey, the Steelers game is on Thursday night. Maybe we should go to the movie on Friday or Saturday? Does Jean have Friday or Saturday off?

Date: 11-25-2013 17:38

A) Jean doesn’t have either of those days off and B) We won’t actually get the game (legally anyways)

Date: 11-25-2013 17:40

I think it's a national game. We'll do whatever you think, though.

Date: 11-25-2013 17:43

I don’t actually get TV though. I use internet + my Apple TV.

Date: 11-25-2013 17:43

The Steelers stick this year anyhow. I’ll see if Ansel minds.

Date: 11-25-2013 17:43

I don’t.

Date: 11-25-2013 17:43

Let me know .

Date: 11-25-2013 17:44

Haven't bought tickets yet.

Date: 11-25-2013 17:44

Also, Ansel can skip movie to watch online. No prob.

Date: 11-25-2013 17:47

Yeah, but then I’d feel weird not staying with him.

Date: 11-25-2013 17:48

Fuck 'im. He's not a real Cready-Pyle.

Date: 11-25-2013 17:49

That's the holiday spirit!

Date: 11-25-2013 17:50

: )

Date: 11-25-2013 18:04

Well the game isn’t until 8:30PM so maybe we can see the movie before then.

Date: 11-25-2013 18:06

shit, it’s 2.5hrs long

Date: 11-25-2013 18:06

how early can we eat? :D

Date: 11-25-2013 18:08

If we can eat at 5:00PM, then we can make the 5:40PM showing at Regal Potomac Yard and be home in time to watch the game.

Date: 11-25-2013 18:09

Oh, we'll eat waaaay earlier. 2:30, probably.

Date: 11-25-2013 18:08

Then we’ll have plenty of time.

Date: 11-25-2013 18:10

How about this? We eat, go to the movie, then come home, play board games and watch football?

Date: 11-25-2013 18:10


Date: 11-25-2013 18:11

I'll look for a 4:00 movie.

Date: 11-25-2013 18:11

What board games do you have?

Date: 11-25-2013 18:10

Date: 11-25-2013 18:12

Which theater should we go to?

Date: 11-25-2013 18:10

AMC Hoffman has it at 4:00 and Regal Potomac Yard has it at 4:20.

Date: 11-25-2013 18:10


Date: 11-25-2013 18:12

Both are pretty close?

Date: 11-25-2013 18:13

I have Settlers of Catch (which we will play), Scrabble, Buzzword, Life, and Pictionary.

Date: 11-25-2013 18:13

Oh, and Farkle

Date: 11-25-2013 18:14

Go with AMC.

Date: 11-25-2013 18:15

It doesn’t really matter. They’re all within 10 min of our place.

Date: 11-25-2013 18:19

K. If you talked to Ansel, did you confirm he'd like to join us at the movie?

Date: 11-25-2013 18:19

So long as he can watch the game he doesn't care.

Date: 11-26-2013 12:47

Have you already gone shopping?

Date: 11-26-2013 12:48

No. Why?

Date: 11-26-2013 12:51

You should buy buns, too. Little ones, if you can find then. Two dozen little ones.

Date: 11-26-2013 12:58

Also, have you watched Alpha House on Amazon?

Date: 11-26-2013 13:36

Date: 11-26-2013 13:36

That’s the free video monitoring app

Date: 11-26-2013 13:37

Thank you.

Date: 11-26-2013 13:37

Must have gotten stacked up in your in-box.

Date: 11-26-2013 13:38

The only thing I wish it could do is allow you to send/receive audio. A fish-eye lens would be very helpful as well.

Date: 11-27-2013 09:54

Do you have a potato peeler and an electric hand mixer?

Date: 11-27-2013 09:58

A regular peeler? Yes. Electric hand mixer, yes.

Date: 11-27-2013 09:59


Date: 11-27-2013 10:58

Should I bring some beer for Ansel or do you have it?

Date: 11-27-2013 10:58

When does he arrive?

Date: 11-27-2013 10:59

Today around noon. I have a 12 pack of Sam Adams winter something.

Date: 11-27-2013 10:59

The only good thing about Cam leaving tonight at 9 is she is unlikely to sleep through it.

Date: 11-27-2013 11:16

You have a can opener, right?

Date: 11-27-2013 11:38


Date: 11-27-2013 21:33

Date: 11-27-2013 21:37

So true. Did Ansel make it? Cam's bus left 30 mins late.

Date: 11-27-2013 21:35

Yes. He got here around 1:30-2:00PM.

Date: 11-28-2013 10:08


Date: 11-28-2013 11:50

Be there in 5

Date: 11-28-2013 11:56

Call Jean

Date: 11-28-2013 11:57

I'm out getting coffee.

Date: 11-28-2013 11:57

Can we just go up and knock?

Date: 11-28-2013 11:57


Date: 11-28-2013 11:57

But if you want help carrying things, Ansel and Caneron aren't doing anything. So feel free.

Date: 11-28-2013 21:30

Date: 11-29-2013 09:45


Date: 11-29-2013 09:48


Date: 11-29-2013 09:48


Date: 11-29-2013 09:47

Yeah. I just got up. Need to get Ansel up.

Date: 11-29-2013 09:49

We need to get Cam up.

Date: 11-29-2013 09:49

I'm thinking 10:30.

Date: 11-29-2013 09:49


Date: 11-29-2013 09:49

Or yeah

Date: 11-29-2013 09:50

Also, send address.

Date: 11-29-2013 09:49

You have an iPhone.

Date: 11-29-2013 09:51

Is there more than one? I'll check

Date: 11-29-2013 09:51

It's the Bailey's crossroads one

Date: 11-29-2013 09:53

We got it.

la Madeleine Country French Café
5861 Crossroads Cir, Bailey's Crossroads, VA 22041

Date: 11-29-2013 10:40

We're leaving now.

Date: 11-29-2013 10:40

We too!

Date: 11-29-2013 10:40

We too?

Date: 11-29-2013 10:40


Date: 11-29-2013 10:40

English much?

Date: 11-29-2013 10:41

"We, too" is how to say it correctly.

Date: 11-29-2013 10:40

I thought it was "Us, too"

Date: 11-29-2013 10:42

It's short for "We are, too".

Date: 11-29-2013 10:43

Grammar: The difference between knowing your shit and knowing you're shit.

Date: 11-29-2013 10:52

We're sitting near the register.

Date: 11-29-2013 12:03

We're here!

Date: 11-29-2013 12:04

Okay, we're coming down.

Date: 11-30-2013 08:07

Dad and I are heading to Jean's Lord and Taylor. Cam's asleep but her phone is on loud ring. Call when you're ready to have breakfast. Dad and I will be back around 11:30 or noon.

Date: 11-30-2013 10:25

Are you up?

Date: 11-30-2013 10:25

Yes. Was planning on going to breakfast at 10:45 again.

Date: 11-30-2013 10:27

We're back. Is Cam up? Where are you going?

Date: 11-30-2013 10:27

Well, almost back.

Date: 11-30-2013 10:27

I woke her up at 10:00. Original Pancake House.

Date: 11-30-2013 10:27


Date: 11-30-2013 10:28

You pick her up. We'll go straight there.

Date: 11-30-2013 10:28

Put Socks in car, k?

Date: 11-30-2013 10:28

The Original Pancake House
7395 Lee Hwy, Falls Church, VA 22042

Date: 11-30-2013 10:43

Is Ansel joining us ?

Date: 11-30-2013 10:44


Date: 11-30-2013 10:48

We won't be there until like 11:00-11:10

Date: 11-30-2013 10:54

K. Daddy put our ne in. 25 mins.

Date: 11-30-2013 14:58

Do you get your hair cut at Phillippe Suisse salon?

Date: 11-30-2013 14:58


Date: 12-01-2013 10:37

Great weekend. Thanks for hosting. We accidentally took your beaters.

Date: 12-01-2013 10:47

Don't worry. We got one of your pots.

Date: 12-01-2013 10:49

We'll trade at Christmas.

Date: 12-01-2013 10:49

Did you see the pic of Doris on FB?

Date: 12-01-2013 10:49

Not yet. Will do.

Date: 12-01-2013 10:49

Aye yi yi.

Date: 12-01-2013 13:10

Don't forget your Weeknight Bolognese.

Date: 12-01-2013 13:12

We're about five minutes from Jeanne's nursing home. Easy trip home.

Date: 12-02-2013 20:57

Would you consider writing Terry a quick update email, telling her about your new job, etc? She was very helpful in your job quest, and I think she'd appreciate hearing the update from you. Love you! Good luck tomorrow.

Date: 12-03-2013 15:26

What is Jean's correct email address?

Date: 12-03-2013 16:30

Date: 12-03-2013 16:32

On a scale of 1-10, with 10 being great, how is first day going?

Date: 12-03-2013 16:32

Uh… 7?

Date: 12-03-2013 16:33


Date: 12-04-2013 10:47

You'll be happy to know that NGP VAN is responsible for Hillary's 2016 website.

Date: 12-04-2013 10:48

What?!!!! OMIGOD!!

Date: 12-04-2013 10:48

Date: 12-04-2013 10:49

Oops. Meant that for Daddy.

Date: 12-04-2013 10:49


Date: 12-04-2013 10:53

When can I meet her?

Date: 12-04-2013 12:13

She's in the office today. I'll tell her you said hi. ;)

Date: 12-04-2013 12:15

Does she have her sunglasses and Blackberry?

Date: 12-04-2013 12:19

Date: 12-04-2013 16:21

The second season of Lilyhammer starts this month!

Date: 12-04-2013 16:49

Oh wow. Jean and I just started re-watching that.

Date: 12-05-2013 09:27

Teri's thinking of coming to Pgh on Sat, Dec 21, and leaving Mon, Dec 23. Can we celebrate Christmas on Sat, Dec 21?

Date: 12-05-2013 10:33

I'll double check with Jean, but I believe that will work perfectly. We get both Christmas Eve and New Years Eve off. Maybe I can get that Monday off as well as I assume most people will be taking that day off anyhow.

Date: 12-05-2013 20:13

Last night's Daily Show might be one of the best I've seen — journalist-ly anyway.

Date: 12-05-2013 20:15

Well the first 11 minutes

Date: 12-05-2013 20:36

We didn't record it (accident.) We'll watch it online.

Date: 12-07-2013 19:45

Do you have a minute to call regarding Xmas plans?

Date: 12-07-2013 20:46

I'll be in town next weekend.

Date: 12-07-2013 20:49

Ugh, just realized that's the wrong weekend. I guess I can do both as Jean will be working.

Date: 12-07-2013 21:27

I'm at Judy Hulick's party with Joe Magianello (sp?)

Date: 12-07-2013 21:28

Franco Harris is expected.

Date: 12-07-2013 21:53

Question: Will Jean be coming to Pgh, as you said she has Xmas Eve and Xmas off? We will be celebrating Sat , 12/20 with Teri, you and Cam. We can celebrate again if Jean is coming 12/24-25.

Date: 12-07-2013 21:54

No, I have Xmas eve off. Jean does not.

Date: 12-07-2013 21:55

So, no Jean in Pgh. Got it.

Date: 12-10-2013 19:44

Date: 12-10-2013 21:57

Date: 12-10-2013 21:57

An argument for the Oxford comma in today's news.

Date: 12-10-2013 21:58

True. Must use to avoid confusion, but when you don't have confusion, sentence looks so much better without.

Date: 12-10-2013 21:59

But then you have two alternate styles.

Date: 12-10-2013 22:01

No. The AP Style is no Oxford comma except in cases when it's required to avoid confusion. I strongly prefer no Oxford comma.

Date: 12-10-2013 22:01

Bah! Humbug.

Date: 12-10-2013 22:05

Anyone with design style should prefer no comma. It just looks better, lighter, sleeker.

Date: 12-13-2013 16:58

Date: 12-13-2013 19:14

I just got another paycheck from AOL. I thought the previous check would've been the last one. My last day was like October 4th or something, right?

Date: 12-13-2013 19:17

And I got a $800 paycheck on October 15th from AOL and then I got TWO full paychecks from them on October 31.

Date: 12-13-2013 19:18

That's 2.5 paychecks in October and another two paychecks in November. Now this is another.

Date: 12-13-2013 21:15

Wow. Don't tell anyone.

Date: 12-13-2013 21:16

Now unless it's exactly the amount of a paycheck, give or take, it may be them paying you back for unused vacation days, which they're required to do.

Date: 12-13-2013 21:17

Exact same amount.

Date: 12-13-2013 21:18

It could also be your 401(k). Companies aren't required to keep your account if the balance is below a certain amount.

Date: 12-13-2013 21:18

Oh, okay.

Date: 12-13-2013 21:22

Date: 12-13-2013 21:22

Date: 12-13-2013 21:24

Time to put a ring on it, pal.

Date: 12-13-2013 21:24

Maybe they accidentally have me 5 months of severance ;)

Date: 12-13-2013 21:25

I have almost $10k to my name. I feel like I'm almost kinda an adult now.

Date: 12-13-2013 21:26

Then again, I got like half of that today, lol.

Date: 12-13-2013 21:26

Oh and I got an Xmas bonus from NGP.

Date: 12-13-2013 21:27

Only $92, but I ain't complaining.

Date: 12-13-2013 21:27

Are you effing kidding me?

Date: 12-13-2013 21:27

Maybe you can pick up Ansel's redelivery fee.

Date: 12-13-2013 21:28

Also, ring?

Date: 12-13-2013 21:30

Date: 12-13-2013 21:30

Now hush.

Date: 12-13-2013 21:32


Date: 12-13-2013 21:32

Mum's the word, mom!

Date: 12-13-2013 21:34

I promise.

Date: 12-13-2013 21:37

Definitely not Cam. I won't hear the end of it until… well, whenever I find a good time to do it.

Date: 12-13-2013 21:40

All right. I promise.

Date: 12-14-2013 15:32

Date: 12-14-2013 15:32

Also, we watched the first show of the second season of Lilyhammer last night.

61 in Alexandria on Friday!

Date: 12-20-2013 09:08

Hey, boy, what are your travel plans?

Date: 12-20-2013 10:52

I'm going to leave tomorrow morning for Pittsburgh, but I'll stay through Monday morning.

Date: 12-20-2013 10:56


Date: 12-20-2013 11:03

Teri will be here both nights. She's staying at a hotel. You are sleeping on our couch, unless you'd prefer to bring the blowup bed and sleep on that. Don't forget my stockpot. Can't wait to see you. Love you!

Date: 12-23-2013 15:20

Date: 12-23-2013 15:20

Aren't you supposed to be in this picture?

Date: 12-23-2013 16:21

Date: 12-23-2013 16:23

Great wide angle! What's that password again?

Date: 12-23-2013 22:23

Does the two-way audio work?

Date: 12-23-2013 23:16

Yes, and the night vision is like military-grade.

Date: 12-23-2013 23:17

And that password again is...?

Date: 12-23-2013 23:18


Date: 12-23-2013 23:18

Date: 12-23-2013 23:18

This is the room pitch black.

Date: 12-23-2013 23:19


Date: 12-23-2013 23:19

Yeah. I was very impressed.

Date: 12-26-2013 13:26

Have you caught the cats doing anything untoward?

Date: 12-26-2013 14:33

Yeah, at night I was finally able to see why Lucy kept meowing after I went to bed. She likes to hunt the toys and meows when she's got one of them in her teeth. I guess she only feels like hunting when all the lights are off ;)

Date: 12-26-2013 14:34

Oh, good. And we love seeing the different positions you sleep in.

Date: 12-26-2013 16:51

I can see you :D

Date: 12-26-2013 16:57

Wrong person, oops!

Date: 12-26-2013 17:00

Texting Savvy again?

Date: 12-26-2013 17:00


Date: 12-27-2013 14:03

You'll be pleased to know Cam and her friends managed to break the glass on our coffee table last night.

Date: 01-02-2014 20:49

First, we had dinner with Zeke's parents last night and Zeke announced he "finally met Wyatt."

Date: 01-02-2014 20:50

He met me once back at 330 Atlanta.

Date: 01-02-2014 20:50

But it was brief so I understand.

Date: 01-02-2014 20:51

Second, today Cam said Zeke told her that you're "essentially a male version of Cameron." But that's a compliment. He thinks Cam is the funniest girl he's ever met.

Date: 01-02-2014 20:54

I thought you'd enjoy being described as the male version of Cameron.

Date: 01-02-2014 20:55

Not as smart. But definitely funnier.

Date: 01-02-2014 22:18

Did you get any snow?

Date: 01-02-2014 22:18

2 or 3 inches. Not much.

Date: 01-02-2014 22:18


Date: 01-02-2014 22:19

Like an inch maybe, but it's perfectly still outside so it makes the trees look super nice.

Date: 01-02-2014 22:19


Date: 01-02-2014 22:21

Too dark, I need an iPhone 6.

Date: 01-02-2014 22:22

Maybe the night vision on your DropCam?

Date: 01-02-2014 22:23

But it's in the perfect spot. I'll never get it that perfect again.

Date: 01-02-2014 22:24

I'm kidding.

Date: 01-02-2014 22:24

Any new car discoveries ?

Date: 01-02-2014 22:24


Date: 01-02-2014 22:24

They sleep all day… Not sure that qualifies as a discovery though.

Date: 01-05-2014 09:24

Date: 01-05-2014 09:24

We got another. Open it or send it to you?

Date: 01-05-2014 09:28

Open it I guess.

Date: 01-05-2014 09:30

K. Sent as email.

Date: 01-05-2014 09:31

BTW, Daddy loves his Pebble watch. I do, too.

Date: 01-05-2014 09:31

What the fuck is that?! I'm not paying it, whatever it is.

Date: 01-05-2014 09:34

Yeah, definitely never, ever paying that bullshit.

Date: 01-05-2014 09:36

Clearly a non-moving violation which means they couldn't suspend my license, which means I ain't paying them.

Date: 01-05-2014 13:48

Date: 01-05-2014 13:48

Back of letter. Sorry, this is probably helpful, too.

Date: 01-05-2014 13:52

A year and a half it took them to send this letter.

Date: 01-06-2014 16:43

Date: 01-07-2014 05:52

Date: 01-07-2014 05:52

Dress warmly, darling boy. 9 below in Pgh.

Date: 01-07-2014 08:13

First day since college I've wanted gloves.

Date: 01-07-2014 08:14


Date: 01-08-2014 12:45

Hey, just calling to say hello. Hope you're managing the cold well. Love you!

Date: 01-08-2014 20:17

About what time do you arrive at the Pentagon City Metro stop in the morning?

Date: 01-08-2014 20:31

I take the 8:30AM shuttle, which gets me to the metro around 8:45AM. I catch the metro which takes roughly 15 minutes, putting in the office around 9:10AM-9:30AM.

Date: 01-08-2014 21:10

Date: 01-08-2014 21:10

First, both the 7X and 7W busses will pick you up at the Pentagon City Metro Stop and drop you off here.

Date: 01-08-2014 21:13

Date: 01-08-2014 21:13

Second, taking the Yellow and switching to the Orange at L'Enfant station at 8:50 works.

Date: 01-09-2014 18:53

You mail the ticket but not my seltzer water maker?! Thanks!

Date: 01-09-2014 18:54

It didn't fit in the envelope.

Date: 01-09-2014 18:55


Date: 01-09-2014 19:36

Date: 01-09-2014 19:46

It was revolutionary. That means it's been almost 7 years since I brought you fast food while you waited in line--without sitting--at the Apple Store for me.

Date: 01-10-2014 13:56

You must be sorry January 12 isn't a work day.

Date: 01-10-2014 22:33

Sooooo cute!

Date: 01-17-2014 18:21

Happy Birthday, mom!

Date: 01-17-2014 18:25

Awww! We're heading to a movie, but if you want to talk, but if you want to talk--and I'm sure you do--you can call now or after 9:30.

Date: 01-17-2014 18:26

Just got home and need to eat dinner. Call me after the movie.

Date: 01-17-2014 18:27

: )

Date: 01-19-2014 10:15

Is this the close of Jean's first or second year at Lord & Taylor?

Date: 01-20-2014 11:48

Date: 01-21-2014 10:02

Urban jungle.

Date: 01-21-2014 10:03

Hasn't even started snowing here yet and they've already canceled work.

Date: 01-21-2014 10:03

I like the way your company thinks.

Date: 01-21-2014 10:04

BTW, it's looking like our weekend in Philly is February 22/23. Can you and Jean join us?

Date: 01-21-2014 10:08

Separately, either I alone or Daddy and I will visit DC the weekend of March 7/8/9. If it's me alone, can I sleep on the blow-up bed? I'll be attending an opera with Dr. Hulick on Sat night but can visit with you guys Friday night and during the day on Saturday. If Daddy comes, we'll stay at a hotel.

Date: 01-21-2014 10:26

Okay, I'll talk with Jean. I will certainly come. BTW, True Detective is very good so far.

Date: 01-21-2014 10:28

Wish HBO would learn from Netflix and release the whole season. So annoying that I have to wait.

Date: 01-21-2014 10:30

Yes on True Detective. May I also recommend Sherlock from PBS. Sunday was the Season 3 opener, and it was _very_ funny and entertaining. There are only three episodes per season, so it's easy to catch up.

Date: 01-21-2014 17:42

Date: 01-21-2014 17:42

Meeting Kitten for the first time.

Date: 01-22-2014 08:50

Was work cancelled today? Drexel cancelled classes today and yesterday.

Date: 01-22-2014 08:52

Our schedule is based on the federal government. If they're closed, we are as well. They're on a two hour delay today. But I'm going in on time (at metro now).

Date: 01-22-2014 08:54

You're a dedicated boy. Say, just for fun, maybe try that other exit today when you get off the train.

Date: 01-22-2014 08:54

It's freaking cold here in Pgh.

Date: 01-22-2014 08:54


Date: 01-22-2014 08:54

Date: 01-22-2014 08:56

The headphone jack on my iPhone is going bad. And the battery is already at 87% (was 100% when I left the apartment).

Date: 01-22-2014 08:58

I have to re-charge my battery at least once per day. Do you keep a charger at work? I hope the iPhone 6 is better. I don't qualify for mine till like Sep or something.

Date: 01-22-2014 09:02

You can exchange yours now.

Date: 01-22-2014 09:02

Mine isn't until next release.

Date: 01-22-2014 09:02

Remember, I didn't get a new one this last time.

Date: 01-22-2014 09:02

You think? Yeah, but for what? I wasn't excited about the latest release. Might as well wait.

Date: 01-22-2014 09:02

Because I didn't want to go through that whole BS process again.

Date: 01-22-2014 09:03

The new iOS really runs down the batteries on older models.

Date: 01-22-2014 09:02

And if it wasn't for that unlimited data, I'd be switching to Verizon. Fucking AT&T.

Date: 01-22-2014 09:06

Do you think unlimited data is worth it? I've wondered myself, not because I want to switch to Verizon--my coverage is fine--but because if I switch I can throw in a mobil hotspot for almost no extra money.

Date: 01-22-2014 09:06

You and Jean should get a family plan, maybe.

Date: 01-22-2014 09:06

If unlimited data wasn't "worth it", AT&T wouldn't be trying to get everyone off it.

Date: 01-22-2014 09:08

True. And I keep wondering what might come in the future when I'd be so grateful to still have unlimited.

Date: 01-22-2014 09:09

But, you're right. If AT&T wants me off, I want to stay.

Date: 01-22-2014 09:46

Metro issues. I've been in this car for almost 45 minutes now. But at least I'm next to this sweet old lady. She's keeping the conversation going.

Date: 01-22-2014 09:46

Awww. Good practice for talking to your mom.

Date: 01-22-2014 09:47

Remember when you were sitting next to the woman reading my book?

Date: 01-22-2014 10:45

Yup, small world for sure.

Date: 01-22-2014 16:22

Do you have a preference about going to Philly either Feb 15/16 or 22/23?

Date: 01-22-2014 18:17

February 22nd–23rd

Date: 01-22-2014 18:19

Jean hasn't gotten her 2014 planner yet so you may want to remind me again the week prior ;)

Date: 01-22-2014 18:21

Are you aware you have a calendar app on your phone?

Date: 01-22-2014 18:21

That's what I told Jean :D

Date: 01-22-2014 22:21

Date: 01-22-2014 22:31

My password is 18 characters long and uses spaces, upper and lower case letters, punctuation, and numbers.

Date: 01-22-2014 22:33

"My mom is the gr8est!"?

Date: 01-22-2014 22:33


Date: 01-23-2014 19:56

Do you know yet if Jean is coming to Philly ? I'm making hotel reservations. If it's just you, you can stay in the hotel room with us. If it's you and Jean, I'll get a separate room for you two.

Date: 01-24-2014 12:46

What is the asthma product you use?

Date: 01-24-2014 15:26


Date: 01-24-2014 21:58

K. Thx. What is the Hulu Plus login and pw?

Date: 01-24-2014 23:03
crondata (I think)

Date: 01-24-2014 23:05


Date: 01-24-2014 23:05

Date: 01-24-2014 23:05

My view.

Date: 01-25-2014 16:03

If you haven't already seen this, hilarious.

Uh oh.

Date: 02-01-2014 10:00

Date: 02-02-2014 12:35

This is what we used on Socks.

Date: 02-10-2014 08:40

Check out this article from USA TODAY:

AOL CEO sorry for 'distressed babies' remark

Date: 02-10-2014 10:40

Why hasn't the board fired him yet?

Date: 02-10-2014 15:21

Date: 02-10-2014 15:21

Pretty cool.

Date: 02-10-2014 19:07

Don't read this until after you've watched the latest True Detective:

Date: 02-10-2014 19:18

Just did. What an intense 6 minutes!

Date: 02-10-2014 19:31

Amazing, huh? So what do you think we're going to find out before the series ends (episide 8 is the last one. Next year it will be a different story with different actors.)

Date: 02-10-2014 21:10

Different actors, huh? Interesting. I've been trying to figure this story out and I assume the present-day detectives suspect one of them of being the killer. If bet of Woody if I had to guess.

Date: 02-11-2014 15:33

Date: 02-11-2014 20:15

Date: 02-11-2014 20:15

I didn't realized it was pronounced as "marry-it"

Date: 02-11-2014 20:20

I usually say "Marry-et." What do you say?

Date: 02-11-2014 20:20

I was afraid you were going to say you got married.

Date: 02-11-2014 20:21


Date: 02-11-2014 20:23

Oh, yeah. That's probably closer to what I say. I think the voiceover guy just took some liberties. Brand manager will probably have a heart attack when he hears it.

Date: 02-11-2014 20:24

So, funny story. I sent Wileen this:

Date: 02-11-2014 20:23

Or marry-aw-t

Date: 02-11-2014 20:24

Tell me when you've watched it.

Date: 02-11-2014 20:27

Watched it, didn't get it.

Date: 02-11-2014 20:27

I haven't seen the movie or whatever.

Date: 02-11-2014 20:29

It comes out later this month. But I sent that to her. And she sent this to me, saying the video reminded her of her other two favorite movie re-creators:

Date: 02-11-2014 20:29

Date: 02-11-2014 20:29


Date: 02-11-2014 20:30

I guessed it was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles you guys were acting out, only because it was too early for Momento.

"Let them eat cake." - Tim Armstrong

Date: 02-12-2014 08:36

"And choke on it!"

Date: 02-12-2014 08:36

"And try to do it before December 31."

Date: 02-12-2014 08:38


Date: 02-12-2014 08:40

Yes. Infuriating.
Why hasn't this guy been fired by AOL's board yet? He might not be an HR nightmare like a pregnant woman (ugh), but he certainly is a PR nightmare.

Date: 02-12-2014 08:44

The most visible action a board takes is hiring a CEO. They are very reluctant to admit they made a mistake.

Date: 02-12-2014 08:44

Jesus, DC is set to get 6 to 12 inches in the next two days?

Date: 02-12-2014 08:45

They wouldn't be revealing any secrets by firing Tim.

Date: 02-12-2014 08:45

Yeah, I know.

Date: 02-12-2014 08:46

Agree. They just wait until it looks worse to keep him. They are rarely proactive.

Date: 02-12-2014 08:45

My office already sent out an email saying the office would probably be closed on Thursday.

Date: 02-12-2014 08:46

Make sure your car is filled and your fridge.

Date: 02-12-2014 08:47

Just went grocery shopping yesterday.

Date: 02-12-2014 08:47

I've got seltzer for days.

Date: 02-12-2014 08:49

It shows 53 and sunny for 9 days from now in Philly, the day before we drive in.

Date: 02-12-2014 08:49

Pffft. I don't trust weather forecasts further than 7 days out.

Date: 02-12-2014 08:50

Very wise.

Date: 02-12-2014 08:50

Is there a Costco near you?

Date: 02-12-2014 08:51

Uhh, there's one a couple blocks away from the Pentagon City Metro.

Date: 02-12-2014 08:52

Have you ever shopped there?

Date: 02-12-2014 08:52

Back when I lived in Crystal City. It was across the street, so yeah.

Date: 02-12-2014 08:52

Not recently though.

Date: 02-13-2014 12:05

How are you doing in DC? Still have heat?

Date: 02-13-2014 16:03

Date: 02-14-2014 07:49

Happy Valentine's Day, darling Boy!

Date: 02-14-2014 19:01

OMG the first episode!

Date: 02-14-2014 20:49

And, just think, you're all tangled up in the world of politics now, too.

Date: 02-14-2014 20:49

We watched first episode. V good. You can have Netflix back again.

Date: 02-14-2014 20:50

It's like Game of Thrones.

Date: 02-14-2014 20:52

With the whole killing off main characters and such. And seemingly out of nowhere.

Date: 02-14-2014 20:53

Do you watch Game or Thrones?

Date: 02-14-2014 20:53


Date: 02-14-2014 20:58

Yes. Very much like that.

Date: 02-14-2014 20:59

You might enjoy the original British version of House of Cards. It might be on Netflix.

Date: 02-14-2014 20:59

Same story?

Date: 02-14-2014 21:02

House of Parliament, of course. Francis Urquart is the guy's name. He still talks to the audience. It's less dark than the American version. More of a dark comedy. I actually prefer the original. The stories share some details but not all.

Date: 02-14-2014 21:03

Date: 02-15-2014 21:23

Date: 02-16-2014 09:11

What is the medicine for the flu and how do I get it?

Date: 02-16-2014 09:18

You literally just texted me.

Date: 02-16-2014 09:20

Okay, well I'm passing out again. Text Jean.

Date: 02-16-2014 10:25

Tamiflu. Call your doctor. They'll prescribe over the phone.

Date: 02-16-2014 10:29

His office is closed until Tuesday.

Date: 02-16-2014 10:31

Why do you need a doctor for this drug?

Date: 02-16-2014 10:33

There's always an answering service who can reach him after hours. Just call the main number and listen to the message fir the after hours number. The doc will be happy to call the Rx in for you. Flu=icky.

Date: 02-16-2014 10:34

So again, why do you need an Rx for such a drug? Retarded.

Date: 02-16-2014 10:37

Definitely call. Tamiflu will cut the symptoms and duration by half.

Date: 02-16-2014 10:49

But you have to start it within the first two days. So call today!

Date: 02-16-2014 10:50

I did. The doctors office message went on for 65 seconds before giving me the number of the answering service.

Date: 02-16-2014 10:50

Now I'm waiting for that doctor to call me back.

Date: 02-16-2014 10:55

When is the asshole doctor going to call me back?!

Date: 02-16-2014 10:57

And why on god's green earth do I need a goddam Rx for this drug!?

Date: 02-16-2014 10:58

It'd better be as addictive as heroin.

Date: 02-16-2014 11:06

It's an antiviral, one of the few effective antivirals that have ever been developed. It has to be tightly controlled so that it's not overused, the way antibiotics have been overused. (Antibiotics are effective against bacteria. Antivirals are effective against viruses.) When antibiotics or antivrals are overused, it helps trains the bacteria and viruses to develop immunity to them. The bacteria and viruses develop into superbugs that can't be treated. Do you have a thermometer? Make sure Jean buys you one. Also, keep yourself well hydrated. And take cool baths or showers if you get too warm.

Date: 02-16-2014 11:06

I have a temperature of just over 99° when I checked this morning.

Date: 02-16-2014 11:11

Best course of treatment=Tamiflu+lots of fluids+ibuprofen+sleep

Date: 02-16-2014 20:50

That tamiflu is really good at make one evacuate their stomach.

Date: 02-16-2014 20:51

Pooping or vomiting?

Date: 02-16-2014 20:50

The latter.

Date: 02-16-2014 20:52

Basically made me nauseous for 8 hours.

Date: 02-16-2014 20:54

Poor baby. Don't get dehydrated.

Date: 02-16-2014 20:54

Drink as much as you can get down.

Date: 02-16-2014 20:54

Date: 02-17-2014 10:44

So I'm assuming they want you to take all ten pills (tamiflu) to prevent the whole superbug situation, correct? I do feel a lot better already.

Date: 02-17-2014 10:46

Yes, you should keep taking it. I'm v glad you feel better. The side effects supposedly only impact the first two days. Is today a holiday for you?

Date: 02-17-2014 10:55


Date: 02-17-2014 17:16

How are you feeling now?

Date: 02-17-2014 17:38

Worse actually. Temperature went up a little.

Date: 02-17-2014 17:38

BTW you can certainly stay with us that weekend.

Date: 02-17-2014 17:41

My little sweet pea. Drink lots. Take care of yourself. Is work cancelled for tomorrow?

Date: 02-17-2014 17:41

If by cancelled you mean I'm taking a sick day, then yes.

Date: 02-17-2014 17:42

I thought maybe because of the weather it would be closed or be a work at home day. Did you watch True Detective?

Date: 02-17-2014 17:43

There's a new one out this week?! There wasn't one two weeks ago so I assumed it was an every other week type show.

Date: 02-17-2014 17:45

Yep. Episode 5 aired last night. There's only 8.

Date: 02-17-2014 20:21

What an episode. So both of them lied about Ledoux. I still think it's Woody.

Date: 02-17-2014 20:23

You should watch the rest of House of Cards. The final scene was perfection.

Date: 02-17-2014 20:38

You watched every episode?

Date: 02-17-2014 20:40


Date: 02-17-2014 20:48

You haven't!?

Date: 02-17-2014 21:33

God, no. We watched the first one. She died.

Date: 02-18-2014 09:18

How are you feeling today? Also, this was very interesting.

Date: 02-18-2014 13:45

You okay?

Date: 02-18-2014 15:52

Yeah, I think my fever finally broke. Just working from home today.

Date: 02-19-2014 08:20

Just saw an ad for DropCam on Hulu. Aimed at parents with teenagers at home alone.

Date: 02-19-2014 08:21

God, I wish we'd had one.

Date: 02-19-2014 08:25

No you don't. Ignorance. Is. Bliss.

Date: 02-19-2014 08:25

Plus you had Wayne.

Date: 02-19-2014 08:26

And the police!

Date: 02-19-2014 08:27


Date: 02-19-2014 08:26


Date: 02-19-2014 16:59

And Wileen

Date: 02-19-2014 17:32

Never forget.

Date: 02-20-2014 11:43

Did you get your car insurance card?

Date: 02-20-2014 12:48


Date: 02-20-2014 14:26

Do you have a theory yet of about when you'll arrive in Philadelphia on Sunday?

Date: 02-20-2014 14:39

Around noon on Saturday.

Date: 02-20-2014 14:39

What is the agenda for the weekend?

Date: 02-20-2014 14:45

Lunch. Maybe an exhibit of Maurice Sendak (you can do your Pierre imitation.) Dinner with Teri at Effie's Greek restaurant. And brunch on Sunday.

Date: 02-20-2014 14:47

I thought there was something about signing wills and witnesses.

Date: 02-20-2014 14:47

We can do that, too.

Date: 02-20-2014 14:47

Unless you don't want to.

Date: 02-20-2014 14:48

We can, I just wanted to know when that might be happening.

Date: 02-20-2014 14:50

If I can find a notary open on Saturday near Rittenhouse Square (where the exhibit is), we'd do it between lunch and dinner.

Date: 02-20-2014 15:03

Remember my seltzer machine! And I plan on bringing my DSLR camera and stuff for either you or Cam. I believe both of you wanted it and I don't use it anymore. You'll just need to buy an SD card for it (I have no idea what's on mine and I'd rather not have any embarrassing incidents).

Date: 02-20-2014 15:05

You don't use it? What happened? One of us will just borrow it until you want it back.

Date: 02-20-2014 15:06

Of course, if Cam is the person it will probably break.

Date: 02-21-2014 10:53

Date: 02-22-2014 09:45

Where r u?

Date: 02-22-2014 09:45

Leaving DC

Date: 02-22-2014 09:45


Date: 02-22-2014 09:48

We're halfway between Breezewood and Carlisle.

Date: 02-22-2014 15:41

Date: 02-22-2014 17:18

Pinot grigio or chardonnay. 2 btls, chilled.

Date: 02-22-2014 19:46

Aloft Philadelphia Airport
4301 Island Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19153

Date: 02-22-2014 20:37

The way the hotel is situated, you can only enter from one side of a divided highway. If you're on the wrong side, go to next light and make u-turn. Also, there's an entry gate. Get ticket and hold it tight. $95 fee for losing it.

Date: 02-22-2014 23:17

What hotel are you in?

Date: 02-22-2014 23:28

Sorry, Jean insisted we were at the other one. We're in our room now!

Date: 02-22-2014 23:29

No prob. You can only get ice at the front desk. Also, the shower is see-through!

Date: 02-22-2014 23:33


Date: 02-22-2014 23:35

This is by far and away the fanciest hotel Jean has ever stayed it. She's taking pictures.

Date: 02-22-2014 23:36


Date: 02-22-2014 23:37

And she's now admiring her broach. "Don't you love it? I love it."

Date: 02-22-2014 23:37

She has a such great eye.

Date: 02-22-2014 23:37

Do you want us to drop off your sweater now?

Date: 02-22-2014 23:38


Date: 02-22-2014 23:37


Date: 02-23-2014 08:37

8:36. We're heading to the lobby for coffee.

Date: 02-23-2014 09:08

We're on our way.

Date: 02-23-2014 10:25

Text when you're leaving Matt's place, k?

Date: 02-23-2014 10:47

We're leaving now.

Date: 02-23-2014 10:47


Date: 02-23-2014 12:08

I need you to send Jean the picture of Jean and I eating the cupcakes this morning. I don't know why.

Date: 02-23-2014 13:30

Date: 02-23-2014 13:30

My feed.

Date: 02-24-2014 10:13

Date: 02-26-2014 13:44

Date: 02-26-2014 15:07

Two in the top ten! Nice.

Date: 02-28-2014 21:46

Date: 02-28-2014 22:32

He doesn't quite fit.

Date: 03-01-2014 08:59

How is the Soda Stream working ?

Date: 03-01-2014 11:19

Excellent. How many times will that CO2 canister work? And how do I get a new one?

Date: 03-01-2014 11:21

There are instructions to order replacement canisters or a restrurant supply/gas supply can refill it.

Date: 03-02-2014 14:20

Date: 03-02-2014 18:48

You might want to try The Americans. A spy show set in the early 80s, during the Cold War. Critics love it. It just started its second season. It's on FX. Sort-of House of Cards-y. Not as good, but still good.

Date: 03-02-2014 19:28

Is your work canceled tomorrow?

Date: 03-02-2014 19:29

Date: 03-02-2014 19:32

What a great place you work.

Date: 03-02-2014 19:32

Yeah, it's pretty swell.

Date: 03-02-2014 20:19

You know I'll be staying at your house this Friday and Saturday, right? And I'll be taking you guys out to dinner on Saturday?

Date: 03-02-2014 20:18


Date: 03-03-2014 09:37

Did you watch True Detective?

Date: 03-03-2014 09:49

Not yet. You have already? Is it good?

Date: 03-03-2014 09:49

You finally find out who the man with the scars is. And you've met him before.

Date: 03-03-2014 09:56

Oooh! Can't wait. Did you get 5-8 inches as promised?

Date: 03-03-2014 09:56

We definitely got enough to cancel work.

Date: 03-03-2014 10:34

(This wasn't in the episode, but) I believe that Marty's oldest daughter was somehow involved with his case and he doesn't even know it yet :(

Date: 03-03-2014 11:00

I really wish next week wasn't the end of the story. I can only hope that the story continues but with the two black detectives.

Date: 03-03-2014 11:16

Oh, that would be interesting. Might be nice to have a woman or two who wasn't raped or naked as well.

Date: 03-03-2014 12:21

I think Maggie plays a bigger roll than we're led to believe. She's either a victim or actively coving up her family's involvement in "the sprawl". Let me know when you've seen episode 7. I'm dying to discuss it with someone and you're the only one I know who watches it.

Date: 03-03-2014 13:10

Will do.

Date: 03-03-2014 18:24

I'm gonna need a new car:

Date: 03-03-2014 18:26

In another year or two, we can take over the payments and let Cam drive it.

Date: 03-03-2014 18:28

I was joking. Were you serious?

Date: 03-03-2014 18:28

I'm sure her Santa Fe won't last forever.

Date: 03-03-2014 19:44

We just sat down to True Detective.

Date: 03-03-2014 20:33

We finished.

Date: 03-03-2014 21:52

Date: 03-03-2014 21:59

Date: 03-04-2014 11:17

Date: 03-04-2014 11:53

Look at this on eBay:

Todd Reed 18k Gold 1.28ct Pear Diamond Ring Retail $14.7k Sz7.75 FINAL REDUCTION

Date: 03-04-2014 11:54

Look at this on eBay:

Todd Reed 3ct Diamond Engagement Ring

Date: 03-04-2014 12:20

The ebay one is a light gray one. The ring is a 7.75 ring size, but can be resized.

Date: 03-04-2014 14:40

Not so easy to find, eh?

Date: 03-04-2014 14:40

Did you read my email?

Date: 03-04-2014 14:43

Oh! Excellent!

Date: 03-05-2014 08:18

Date: 03-05-2014 14:22

Date: 03-05-2014 15:32

So if the "green-eared spaghetti monster" is Errol (lawn mower guy), then why does Rust believe that "everything ends" with him? We can safely bet that Errol is just a soldier for the cult so how could it possibly "end" with him?

Date: 03-05-2014 16:17

I guess we'll find out soon, eh?

Date: 03-05-2014 17:32

Two questions: 1) Can you pick me up after Saturday's opera at the nearest Metro station to you? Opera's done around 10, so it may be around 10:30-11 pm. 2) Can you, Jean and I go to the Narional Portrait Gallery on Saturday afternoon?

Date: 03-05-2014 17:53

Yes and yes.

Date: 03-05-2014 17:56


Date: 03-07-2014 10:59

So I'm planning on setting up your bed in what should be the master bedroom (Jean's closet) as it is the only room with doors we can offer. I'll be taking the cats' food and a litter box upstairs so they don't need to get in there, but you will be sleeping very close to their other two litter boxes. If you don't mind not having a room we could put your bed in the living room instead.

Date: 03-07-2014 12:11

I don't mind being close to a litter box. No prob at all. Put me wherever it's convenient for you guys.

Date: 03-07-2014 15:16

Are you working from home?

Date: 03-07-2014 15:51

No, why?

Date: 03-07-2014 15:52

Your last message sort of read that way. I'm at the Starbucks near your apartment.

Date: 03-07-2014 15:53

Can you entertain yourself until 6:30? I can leave early.

Date: 03-07-2014 15:54

Absolutely. Lots o' work to do.

Date: 03-07-2014 15:56

Are there a lot of middle eastern men there?

Date: 03-07-2014 15:56


Date: 03-07-2014 15:56

That Starbucks is like their hangout spot.

Date: 03-07-2014 18:15

You know where to park? And look at that sky!

Date: 03-07-2014 18:15

Are you home? Should I come over?

Date: 03-07-2014 18:16


Date: 03-07-2014 18:16


Date: 03-08-2014 12:54

Where r u?

Date: 03-08-2014 20:42

Hey, I'll pick you up at the Kennedy Center. Just call when you're done.

Date: 03-08-2014 22:57

Pulling into Pentagon station. One more stop.

Date: 03-09-2014 09:31


Date: 03-09-2014 09:32

20 min from restaurant

Date: 03-09-2014 10:17

Date: 03-09-2014 15:48

Home safe!

Date: 03-09-2014 15:48

Judy loves you!

Date: 03-09-2014 15:48

I do, too.

Date: 03-09-2014 15:49

She says you project gentle confidence.

Date: 03-09-2014 20:41

Do you want me to text you my thoughts on True Detective without details at 11:30?

Date: 03-09-2014 20:48

Try to keep it to a single sentence.

Date: 03-09-2014 20:50

I will simply express my own satisfaction or dissatisfaction without any details.

Date: 03-09-2014 21:02

TD doesn't air tonight till 11. One hour episode.

Date: 03-09-2014 21:03

I'll probably be asleep when you text, but I'll watch it in the morning.

Date: 03-09-2014 22:58

Creepy. Scary. Heartbreaking. Sweet. I'm satisfied.

Date: 03-10-2014 07:03

Carcosa scenes are making me dizzy.

Date: 03-10-2014 07:06

And terrified.

Date: 03-10-2014 07:20

What about his daughter!?!?!?!?!!?

Date: 03-10-2014 07:20


Date: 03-10-2014 07:23

You're done?

Date: 03-10-2014 07:24

If in the first chapter you write about a rifle on the wall, then by the third or forth chapter that rifle had better fire.

Date: 03-10-2014 07:24

Depends whether you're writing a mystery or literature.

Date: 03-10-2014 07:25

ESPECIALLY if you're writing a mystery!

Date: 03-10-2014 07:26

Exactly. But in literature you do not need to fulfill expectations. I loved, loved, loved the epilogue and what happened to each man and to their friendship.

Date: 03-10-2014 07:26

Also, scented meat.

Date: 03-10-2014 14:14

Just sent you an important, non-True Detective-related email.

Date: 03-10-2014 15:41

Wow, nice. I'm betting Jean will somehow know that Todd will be in town.

Date: 03-10-2014 15:51

Perhaps you'll have the ring all ready for Todd himself to surprise present it to her on April 11?

Date: 03-10-2014 16:14

Ooo, that's an interesting idea. I was aiming for a date that I already have to remember, but that's pretty good.

Date: 03-10-2014 16:22

Scene: I-Gorman Jewelry Store. JH: "Hi, I'm Jean Hilpert. I've always loved your work." TR: "Wait. Did you say 'Jean Hilpert'? I believe I have a ring here for you." JH: (tears) "I have the world's greatest boyfriend!" JWCP: "Gosh."

Date: 03-12-2014 08:47

Say, are you ever home at night when Jean's not there? I want you to try installing an app on her iPad for me.

Date: 03-12-2014 08:57

It's my (technically AOL's) iPad. And yes, tonight Jean does yoga so she won't be home until after 9:00PM.

Date: 03-12-2014 09:12

Okay, I may call you later. Depends if my jewelry class is cancelled tonight or not.

Date: 03-13-2014 08:43

Date: 03-13-2014 08:43

We had an almost 50° drop in temperature yesterday.

Date: 03-13-2014 08:44

Don't you just love March?

Date: 03-13-2014 08:49


Date: 03-14-2014 22:25

Hey, what's your amazon password?

Date: 03-14-2014 22:25


Date: 03-14-2014 22:25

I think

Date: 03-16-2014 16:15

I understand you're going to be getting quite a few inches of snow tonight.

Date: 03-16-2014 16:39

That's what I've heard. My work sent out an email about it on Friday.

Date: 03-16-2014 16:48

Pittsburgh=zero accumulation.

Date: 03-17-2014 14:04

Hey, if you get a minute, please text me the expiration date on your passport. Thanks.

Date: 03-17-2014 15:32


Date: 03-17-2014 16:10


Date: 03-17-2014 17:52

Did you end up getting a lot of snow?

Date: 03-17-2014 17:53

Yeah, at least 6 inches.

Date: 03-18-2014 07:58

Date: 03-18-2014 17:35

Date: 03-18-2014 17:35

Is this what you drink?

Date: 03-18-2014 18:27

Uhh, nope. I drink Giant brand seltzer water.

Date: 03-23-2014 17:42

Date: 03-27-2014 10:10

Date: 03-27-2014 18:37

Date: 03-27-2014 18:44

4 and 5 apply to my last name more than anything.

Date: 03-27-2014 18:51

You're so lucky your life is interesting.

Date: 03-27-2014 19:10

And that I'm thankful for

Date: 03-29-2014 10:47

I want one of these:

Date: 03-29-2014 11:09

Specifically the "Pre Fab GO Home". It's got 8 inch thick walls!

Date: 03-29-2014 11:14

It's pretty cool. I love pre-fab.

Date: 03-29-2014 11:15

Just watch some of the videos

Date: 03-29-2014 11:15

Like, if I was going to buy a house. That would be it.

Date: 03-29-2014 11:22

I like the passive poop heat.

Date: 03-29-2014 11:21

That was Jean's first comment.

Date: 03-29-2014 11:23

I love the whole idea.

Date: 03-29-2014 11:25

The only issue is finding the land. Maybe you could help administer the whole process as a wedding gift ;D

Date: 03-29-2014 11:27

And when would that wedding be??

Date: 03-29-2014 11:29

Sometime between the proposal and buying a house.

Date: 03-29-2014 11:30

But seriously, Jean is going out of town in April so I'll be doing a lot of the ring stuff then.

Date: 03-29-2014 11:30

San Fran?

Date: 03-29-2014 11:31


Date: 03-29-2014 11:54

Date: 03-29-2014 11:54

I would be happy to help you administer anything, boy.

Date: 03-29-2014 12:02

BTW, today is Teri's birthday if you want to send her an email.

Date: 03-29-2014 13:58

Also, there are lots of empty lots in Mount Washington, right near Grandma and Grandpa's pool.

Date: 03-30-2014 16:54

It's snowing here…

Date: 03-30-2014 16:56

Date: 03-30-2014 16:56

Sunny, cold and windy here. Sixty tomorrow, though.

Date: 04-02-2014 18:37

You should try Orphan Black.

Date: 04-02-2014 19:11

Date: 04-02-2014 19:23

If you're there then how is this possible on Netflix?

Date: 04-02-2014 19:23

Date: 04-02-2014 19:32

Maybe try again. They sent out a Bat signal.

Date: 04-02-2014 19:33

lol, it's working now.

Date: 04-03-2014 19:30

Last night's Daily Show was crazy. That GM story was nuts.

Date: 04-03-2014 19:31

We didn't see it. We flew to LA today from Philly. Short version?

Date: 04-03-2014 19:33

Date: 04-03-2014 19:33

Half your genetic make-up.

Date: 04-03-2014 19:34

One set of bifocals wasn't enough?

Date: 04-03-2014 19:36

One pair is for driving, one for reading and one for sun.

Date: 04-03-2014 19:38

Date: 04-03-2014 19:50

Gotta love a corporation...

Date: 04-06-2014 15:32

Date: 04-07-2014 18:35

Date: 04-07-2014 18:35

The library at Greendale Community College. Go, Human Beings!

Date: 04-08-2014 14:57

Did you watch either Game of Thrones or Silicon Valley?

Date: 04-08-2014 15:27

Date: 04-08-2014 17:19

Date: 04-08-2014 17:47

Is your building okay?

Date: 04-08-2014 17:49

I haven't heard it isn't, so I'm assuming yes, it's okay. I find it somewhat ironic, however, that I was worried we'd have an earthquake while we were in LA, and instead, Mt. Washington practically collapsed while we were here.

Date: 04-08-2014 21:57

Silicon Valley is pretty good.

Date: 04-08-2014 21:58

"They're always in a group of five." You're clearly the tall, skinny one--unless, of course, you're the one with weird facial hair...

Date: 04-08-2014 22:04

I think I can cover two stereotypes, thank you.

Date: 04-09-2014 16:35

Date: 04-10-2014 21:54

There's a guy on the Minnesota hockey team whose last name is Skjei, pronounced "Shay."

Date: 04-11-2014 20:55

The Colbert Report is ending?!? This is the worst news ever.

Date: 04-11-2014 21:28

Sad news for us. Good for Stephen. Maybe Jon Oliver will take his place?

Date: 04-11-2014 21:30

'In a radio interview with CBS News, CBS President and CEO Leslie Moonves said Colbert will not portray his Comedy Central character when he hosts “The Late Show.”'

The flags should be flown at half-mast. 😣

Date: 04-11-2014 21:32

Yes, I'm afraid they don't want a highly biased political show--though, may I add they should if they want young viewers.

Date: 04-11-2014 21:40

Well they'll get me to watch at least once or twice, mostly out of desperation. I'm more sad now than when I found out Winamp was shutting down.

Date: 04-11-2014 21:55

Do you think Stewart got asked and turned it down? My theory is that he did because he wanted to go out on The Daily Show.

Date: 04-11-2014 22:04

I don't think he was asked. Too old. He doesn't attract as young a demographic. Plus, he wants to direct. I don't think he'd want the job anyway.

Date: 04-11-2014 22:05

The average age of The Colbert Report is 42.

Date: 04-11-2014 22:06

Can't you tell he's kind of bored?

Date: 04-11-2014 22:06


Date: 04-11-2014 22:06


Date: 04-11-2014 22:06

Where did you get that?

Date: 04-11-2014 22:09

Jean said she heard it on the radio. I'll see if I can find the statistic.

Date: 04-11-2014 22:14
Forth paragraph.

Date: 04-11-2014 22:36

Date: 04-11-2014 22:42

I agree with what most of them said. It's not as bad as Big Bang Theory when it comes to exaggerating stereotypes, but it did push it pretty close to my limit sometimes.

Date: 04-11-2014 22:43

Still some clever writing in there though.

Date: 04-11-2014 22:43

And the main character is pretty likable.

Date: 04-11-2014 22:47

Was he the tall, skinny one or the one with weird facial hair?

Date: 04-11-2014 23:03

Jean said he looked like kinda like Ansel.

Date: 04-11-2014 23:06

She's right!

Date: 04-12-2014 13:00

Well, I'm still sad Johnny Carson retired in 1992.

Date: 04-12-2014 13:00

He was my Stephen Colbert.

Date: 04-14-2014 20:17

So we're going to be in town this weekend. Jean is available Sunday. Would you like to do a bunch or a dinner?

Date: 04-14-2014 20:22

You are not required to attend, though you are welcome to, Donna is probably doing a Sunday brunch. Are you actually around Sunday for dinner?

Date: 04-14-2014 20:23

Yeah, we're staying through Monday.

Date: 04-14-2014 20:23

We'll take Sunday dinner!

Date: 04-14-2014 20:25

Unless you'd rather go to Donna's house for brunch. Then you can have dinner back.

Date: 04-14-2014 20:29

I'll go to brunch with you. Dinner works better.

Date: 04-14-2014 20:31

Sounds great. Will you or both of you be joining us for dinner on Friday? Or are you not coming till Saturday?

Date: 04-14-2014 20:32

No pressure. I just want to know.

Date: 04-14-2014 20:58

No, we'll be driving up Saturday morning.

Date: 04-14-2014 21:02


Date: 04-15-2014 11:51

Donna called me this morning and said because of Uncle Lee's illness she just doesn't think she can host brunch on Sunday. So brunch on Sunday will probably be breakfast at our house. I just wanted to let you know that in case that changed anything about your desires. Love you.

Date: 04-15-2014 21:37

Date: 04-15-2014 21:42

Was this a surprise to anyone?

Date: 04-15-2014 21:43

Not quite sure I understand what you mean.

Date: 04-15-2014 21:44


Date: 04-15-2014 21:42


Date: 04-15-2014 21:44

I was about to start typing a long response, too. My cognitive abilities to detect sarcasm are declining faster than I'd like.

Date: 04-16-2014 19:06

I'm going to make dinner on Sunday. Is there anything you're in the mood for?

Date: 04-16-2014 19:41

Date: 04-16-2014 19:46

Funny on Comic Sans.

Date: 04-16-2014 19:49

Date: 04-16-2014 19:51

Is that Scoot?

Date: 04-16-2014 19:51


Date: 04-16-2014 19:53

I thought Kitten was having a stroke.

Date: 04-16-2014 21:19

Also, watch Fargo the TV show. Very good first episode. Starts slow then races.

Date: 04-16-2014 21:29

Speaking of good TV, Colbert tells us he's leaving after this year and then goes on a break!?

Date: 04-16-2014 21:32

So unfair. Did you watch Mad Men and Game of Thrones?

Date: 04-16-2014 21:31

Yes and yes

Date: 04-16-2014 21:33

I really needed a recap of Mad Men's last season. I was so lost.

Date: 04-16-2014 21:33

(More than the 30 second bit at the beginning)

Date: 04-16-2014 21:37

I'm here if you have questions. Also, how about that King Joffrey wedding? I predict the wife is preggers.

Date: 04-16-2014 21:39

Joffrey's wife?

Date: 04-16-2014 21:39

The young lady he married? Instead of Sansa?

Date: 04-16-2014 21:39


Date: 04-16-2014 22:06

The future is gonna be awesome.

Date: 04-16-2014 22:07

Would love this!

Date: 04-16-2014 22:07

Pittsburgh will be the last city to get it.

Date: 04-16-2014 22:08

Oh, and my company was in the NYT today:

Date: 04-16-2014 22:10

Check out my FB post.

Date: 04-17-2014 20:24

Did you watch Fargo?

Date: 04-19-2014 10:42

Will we see you today? We're meeting the Herringtons and Stockhausens for Thai food at 7:15 pm then returning to condo for dessert and fireworks around 9:45 or 10. We'd love to have you join us for dessert if you're interested.

Date: 04-19-2014 12:12

Yes, at Breezewood now. I've got to drop Jean off at bridal shower for her cousin first but in should be at your place around 2:30-3:00.

Date: 04-19-2014 12:19

We're listening to Bill Bryson read "A Walk in the Woods".

Date: 04-19-2014 12:21

Really? Sweet!

Date: 04-19-2014 12:34

Only $16 on iTunes.

Date: 04-19-2014 19:04

WiFi password?

Date: 04-19-2014 19:04

Nvm, I got it

Date: 04-20-2014 08:07

We're up. Text when you're up about brunch.

Date: 04-20-2014 09:15

Hey, just woke up. I'll be there in like 15-20 min.

Date: 04-20-2014 09:17

Or do you just want to meet somewhere?

Date: 04-20-2014 09:19

We were planning a bagel breakfast. Can you swing by Einstein Brothers on Greentree Road to pick up a half dozen sesame (a dozen if Jean is coming)? I called yesterday to confirm Einstein will be open. Almost everything is closed since it's the holiest day of the year.

Date: 04-20-2014 09:20

Ugh, fucking theists.

Date: 04-20-2014 09:21

979 Greentree Road, pittsburgh, PA 15220. Near the entrance to the Parkway.

Date: 04-20-2014 09:24


Date: 04-20-2014 09:24

Looks like I was a bit confused about Easter breakfast.

Date: 04-20-2014 09:25

It's okay.

Date: 04-20-2014 09:26

Jean is going to disown me if I don't have breakfast here. So maybe we can have a bagel lunch or something.

Date: 04-20-2014 09:27

No problem at all.

Date: 04-20-2014 09:29

We would like to have you see Jeanne Lowther with us today. Maybe when you're free later we could meet at her nursing home and do lunch after? We only visit for 30 mins. She's still doing good.

Date: 04-20-2014 10:44

Sure. What time is dinner?

Date: 04-20-2014 10:46

We're flexible, but we were thinking appetizers at 6, dinner at 7, dessert at 8.

Date: 04-20-2014 12:10

You'll need to be here by 6:00 and we'll eat at 7:00.

Date: 04-20-2014 12:23

Date: 04-20-2014 16:47

Going to gym on 1st fl till 5:30. No phone service

Date: 04-21-2014 11:39

So wonderful to spend an evening with you and Jean! I'm back at home if you need to take a shower or something. Have a safe trip. It's Cam's birthday.

Date: 04-21-2014 16:52

Are you home safe?

Date: 04-21-2014 16:52

yes, home safe

Date: 04-21-2014 17:17

Go read the email I forwarded to you.

Date: 04-23-2014 08:18

Certainly describes you and Daddy to a T. Daddy's favorite quote: "It turns out our wives are going to dump us without even leaving the marriage."

Date: 04-23-2014 14:18

So apparently Jean isn't leaving for Cali until fucking Monday so now I need to come up with some excuse as to why I need to be out of the apartment for a couple hours on Saturday morning by myself. I was thinking haircut, but then I'll also need to do that. Sigh.

Date: 04-23-2014 15:33

I take it Friday's lunch hour is not an option? You could get to work an hour early to make up for it.

Date: 04-23-2014 15:41

How about a trip to IKEA to buy the curtains your stupid mother needs, which the Pittsburgh IKEA is out of, only to discover the DC IKEA is out of them, too. Or, tell her you need to birthday shop for her so she'll stay home.

Date: 04-23-2014 15:41

The jewelry store is open 11-4 on Saturday.

Date: 04-24-2014 20:12

What days are you coming down to visit?

Date: 04-24-2014 20:12

One night: June 18. Is that still okay?

Date: 04-24-2014 20:13

Yes, just needed to get that written down in Jean's planner.

Date: 04-24-2014 21:22

Date: 04-24-2014 21:22

Wtf do you put on the line with the M?

Date: 04-24-2014 21:26

M is for Ms., Miss, Mr. Or Mrs., so you write "Ms. Jean Hilpert and Mr. Wyatt Cready-Pyle"

Date: 04-24-2014 21:26

That is the dumbest thing ever.

Date: 04-24-2014 21:26

Or rather, you write "s. Jean Hilpert, etc, etc".

Date: 04-24-2014 21:27

It's how they did it in the olden days. Who's getting married?

Date: 04-24-2014 21:27

Jean's cousin and childhood friend.

Date: 04-24-2014 21:28

The girl always goes first, btw, unless you're writing "Mr. and Mrs. Wyatt Cready-Pyle". Please don't ever write that.

Date: 04-24-2014 21:28

Wedding in Pgh? When?

Date: 04-24-2014 21:29

Check the picture I sent!

Date: 04-24-2014 21:29

And yes, in Pittsburgh.

Date: 04-24-2014 21:30

Doesn't say.

Date: 04-24-2014 21:29

Oh, oops. May 31st and June 7th.

Date: 04-24-2014 21:31

They're getting married twice?

Date: 04-24-2014 21:33

Two different weddings.

Date: 04-24-2014 21:34


Date: 04-24-2014 21:36

I'm told that I need to buy a whole new outfit for them.

Date: 04-24-2014 21:55

I take it your Grampa Harvey funeral suit is out?

Date: 04-25-2014 14:13

Date: 04-25-2014 14:13


Date: 04-25-2014 14:18

Hey, we will be out of town on May 31, when you're in for the first wedding. Can you stay at our house and walk the dog and feed the cats? We can get the pet sitter to cover the times you can't, but we're leaving after we walk Socks on Friday, May 30, and returning around dinner on Sunday, June 1.

We'll be in town for the second wedding, the next weekend, and we could celebrate your birthday then if you have a meal free.

Another reason you should watch Fargo: The show takes place in Bemidji, MN (where you've been--remember the statue of Paul Bunyon and Babe , his blue ox, and the headwaters of the Mississippi?), but the tough guys come from a crime syndicate in Fargo, and they say things like, "Fargo says we gotta teach this guy a lesson." It's hilarious. Fargo's like the Vegas of this show. Also, the actor who played Saul in Breaking Bad is in it. And the protagonist is named Lester.

Date: 04-27-2014 19:19

We've been watching This Old House and Antiques Roadshow. They recently added PBS and some other "channels" to Apple TV. Is Fargo on Netflix?

Date: 04-27-2014 19:19


Date: 04-27-2014 19:33

It's on Hulu.

Date: 04-28-2014 08:57

Date: 04-28-2014 10:58

How could they possibly make that into a movie? Half of the entertainment comes from Bryson's inner monologue.

Date: 04-28-2014 11:01

But the other half is Bryson dealing with his crazy friend.

Date: 04-28-2014 11:04

Do you have any other of Bryson's audio books or recommendations? We already finished the last one you gave us.

Date: 04-28-2014 11:05

What? It's like 30 hours!!

Date: 04-28-2014 11:06

It's 12 and we finished 5 of them on the ride home and finished the rest this weekend. It's pleasant background noise.

Date: 04-28-2014 11:13

Bryson: Notes from a Small Island, I'm a Stranger Here Myself, The Life and Times of the Thunderbolt Kid. Also try David Sederis: Me Talk Pretty One Day, When You are Engulfed in Flames, Holidays on Ice.

Go online to your local library. You can order them in and borrow them for no cost (so nice for authors). You have to have a library card, though. Sometimes you just download them to your phone because they have them digitally.

Date: 04-28-2014 11:18

Or join one of Audible's plans.

Are you missing Jean?

Date: 05-01-2014 10:30

Date: 05-01-2014 10:31

New dog friend.

Date: 05-04-2014 11:16

What day does Jean get home?

Date: 05-04-2014 11:16

We're in Chicago with Diane and Nick.

Date: 05-04-2014 12:02


Date: 05-04-2014 12:10

So, are you guys moving to California now?

Date: 05-05-2014 22:13

Amazon password?

Date: 05-05-2014 22:14

January17, I think.

Date: 05-05-2014 22:14

Or possibly January17!

Date: 05-05-2014 22:15

That's it!

Were you on a delayed flight ?

Date: 05-06-2014 18:17

Well, it only covers getting "bumped" in the US. The EU has much better consumer protection.

Date: 05-08-2014 19:28

He found his bushes again.

Date: 05-08-2014 19:30

Nice flowers!

Date: 05-08-2014 21:14

Date: 05-08-2014 21:14

Two hours later, plants are gone, replaced by a bag of garbage. Still holding down the fort.

Date: 05-08-2014 21:15

Maybe he just likes carpet.

Date: 05-08-2014 21:15

Just like my damn kids.

Date: 05-08-2014 21:16

Cam's new place is all hardwood I thought. Jean is jealous.

Date: 05-08-2014 21:18

All hardwood it is. It's like 100 years old.

Date: 05-09-2014 19:26

Do jewelry stores negotiate price or is that unheard of? There's one I really want but it's a little out of my price range and was hoping I could get a few hundred dollars knocked off the price just so I didn't feel as guilty about buying it.

Date: 05-09-2014 19:32

Good question. Let me ask Chuck. He used to work jewelry. Todd Reed may have a policy, though. For example, Apple products and Coach purses are never discounted.

Date: 05-09-2014 19:34

Well this would be through I. Gorman.

Date: 05-09-2014 19:36

They have a purple-looking diamond and it's something like $9,500.

Date: 05-09-2014 19:42

Is that too much money? I feel like it's a lot. But it's like the only purple diamond todd reed has apparently (she asked and got me some other options, but none of them purple).

Date: 05-09-2014 21:17

Have you seen Captain America? Lots of DC scenes.

Date: 05-09-2014 21:25

No, about the only two action hero movies I can stand to watch are Iron Man (because of Robert Downey Jr) and Batman because it's different.

Date: 05-09-2014 21:34

It wasn't great, but the DC stuff was good.

Date: 05-09-2014 21:35

Also, there are a few TR things for sale on Ebay.

Date: 05-09-2014 22:14!1

Date: 05-09-2014 22:19

Far right, third row.

Date: 05-09-2014 22:20

I especially like that one.

Date: 05-09-2014 22:39

Like almost this color!/products/bridal/trdr481-rg-5

Date: 05-09-2014 22:47

Date: 05-09-2014 22:48

That's only like 10% less than the one I want.

Date: 05-09-2014 22:50

Look at this on eBay:
