Apparently things are going too well in my life because it's officially happened--Mr. Crusty Teeth tried to contact me today via Classmates.com. He sent me one of those lame pre-made Quicknotes. It's a generic message designed to convince people they should actually PAY for Classmates.com. He is so not worth that. So, I just sent the same one back that said something like "Hi; how are you; what are you doing now". What I don't understand is why he would be trying to contact me via Classmates.com, though. I've had the same Yahoo address since 1998 and the same AOL email since 1996. If he couldn't remember my exact email, he would at least remember that it's basically my name and the search engine on Yahoo would lead him to it. If those two routes didn't work because of a poor memory or not knowing about the member search sections, how about the fact that my parents have lived in the same house since 1983? If it was really that important, wouldn't you try known routes first? Which makes me think...hmm...what could he possibly want? When he got married the first time and divorced six months later, I at least got a phone call from him. I can only assume that if he was getting divorced again, had a family member die, is having a baby, or even if he was just generally interested in what I was doing with my life, he would call my parents to find out my contact info (which they have been told to NEVER give out to anyone). So, he takes the sneaky way out. Then it occurs to me: I bet he is going to try to ask me for money. Official sources say he owes his landlord and the state money. If you happened to have figured out the profile thing, Mr. T.S., I don't want to see you. Email = fine. Phone = I barely have time for that. Things are going very well for me, but I have a feeling that anything you tell me would just upset or something. Because I know things aren't as rosy for you. I'm very sorry about that, but you made your poor decisions long ago and I'll guarantee you that 95% of the crap you're in now is a result of those choices. I do want to know how your sister is, though.
For my girlies: This morning I decided to be brave (ok, just plain stupid) and dip my eyeshadow brush into water and then directly into the pot of BE Eyeshadow. Because I saw Leslie doing it on QVC, that's why. Ok...sort of I saw her doing that. She actually put the shadow in the lid first and THEN mixed water, tapped, and buffed. I skipped the tap into lid and tap off of brush part altogether. What I discovered is that the stuff turns into paint and the end effect will be great if I ever need to dress up like a slut at some point. I also felt much like a "painted lady." I was able to just paint the stuff on much like watercolors. Nifty, but not quite what I had in mind for work. I'm glad I didn't throw away my eye makeup remover because I would have been late for work had I needed to start all over.
