like mucus

i was going to start this post off with a story about a nickname but unfortunately i can't because i'm too busy being mad at google.

i don't even want to ask what the fuck is with this new buzz bullshit in my gmail because i'm afraid of my head exploding and leaving tiny bloody brain bits on my nice clean carpet when i hear some asinine response.

there is such a thing as being overconnected, google, and your determination to attain global domination truly frightens me.

and that's all i'm going to say about that.

oh, and also, i love my new android phone that hanukka harry gave me.

in other news, my dad died last week and i'm pretty sure he's the one who dumped that shitton of snow all over the east coast just to throw a wrench into our plans for his memorial service.


maybe i can tell that nickname story now.

so my dad's best friend stood up to give a eulogy and while i was appropriately sad and emotional, i definitely heard derek zoolander saying 'ya-googalie' in my head.

this friend began by sharing how he and my father met when they were five years old in kindergarten. my dad says 'hi, i'm rob mansfield' and the friend says 'hi, i'm mike lucas.'

my dad says 'no, from this time forward your name is like mucus.'

also typical.

on that note, i want to send a very heartfelt thanks to all my wonderful family for coming together from all corners in the midst of a blizzard to listen to me ask mulitple times if my eyeliner was running as i cried.

you guys are the best, thank you!

Oh no, I'm so sorry to hear about your dad! Oh gosh, that sucks. What is it with people dying lately? Can they stop that please?

A close friend of mine died last week and it was awful. I can't even imagine what it is like to lose a parent. My mom has cancer and we've been fighting it for what seems like forever and I'd be utterly and completely devestated if I lost her.

Hang in there. If you need a laugh, come over to my blog where I describe the epic fall I had sans coffee.

LOL - like mucus!

Sorry we didn't get out for a drink... I owe you one!

I'm truly saddened about your father.

I don't like Google. I'm not a conspiracy theorist but sooner or later Google is going to make me one.

Best wishes,

I'm just a lurker and a fan but I'm stepping forward to say I'm very sorry for your loss.

I'm sorry. I just lost my 16 year old niece and my Grandfather in a span of 3 months.

Chelle said...

That sounded competitive... but it's too late because I hit publish. Now I feel like an asshole.

What I mean is that I am sorry for you and any time anyone mentions death lately, my heart strings kind of rip instead of tug.

I'm sorry for your loss.

I want to kick Buzz in the vagina right now. What is this shit all over my reader and gmail? Follow this you assholes.

I will never be 'over' the loss of my father. He was the greatest man I ever knew. I have found, however, that writing about him helps me make him immortal.

I know after a time that you will find your funny will. Good luck to you and your family and know that we are all thinking about you.
