Ok, so now that you've done this, I find that I too must get in this bandwagon of which you speak. Also, I love you more than you know.

I found your comment on my 101 things. Thanks for coming by. You know what, I have actually had an "in person" argument with Fred Phelps (the GodHatesFags guy). He is from Topeka Kansas. I live in Kansas City, but I was in Topeka for the "Treasure of the Czars" and he was there. I don't know why. Anyway, I had a pretty extensive religious upbringing, so I "got it on" with him. I kept quoting verses from the Bible that contradict what he says, and of course, it didn't make a difference. But I felt better. Not as much better as I felt as when a car drove by and threw rotten eggs at the group, but hey...

um okay, I tried to comment on this entry once before, but I'm so lame I commented on a post from 9 weeks earlier. So much for my claim to being brilliant... at least I can still claim witty. And Allie, Hush.

Be proud of me I resisted the urge to comment on 26, 55, 56 and 49.

That electro-shock-therapy must be working after all.

Thanks, HRT, I read both your replies, and I appreciate your humility. HA! :)

"I can't believe that it's an accident that I met A, L, D, S, G, and H. Even though the liklihood of us meeting was so slim, it just doesn't feel accidental"

i think your "c" key might be broken.

Tasty said...

It was. You are *ALWAYS* included, since you're "Et."

christ*el #3tx said...

Pateeta said...

Yeah, your "P" was broken, too. I hate when my "P" is broken.
