A Surpising Fact
14 April 1999
6:47 PM: I slammed my forehead right into the corner of a shelf today, trying to get a mouse cord out from under some dumb PC. NT Kills, kids.
Snack! is Skittles. Suck the Rainbow, or however that slogan goes.
In a mail message, Mary suggested that we were wasting a lot of time trading email talking about something that would only have taken a few minutes over the phone. I didn't think she'd catch on so quickly. Probably it was that question about the weather yesterday.
Talking about, we were, dinner. Tomorrow. It's a funny thing. I'm looking forward to it, as much for the dose of reality as anything else. With luck, the real person can drive out the ghost person from the past. A bit, anyway. It'd help.

America's favorite poster couple for eugenics, Dan & Marilyn Quayle, were lifted bodily into Heaven today, as part of a special "Early Rapture" program. When asked if this meant that the full-fledged Rapture and Armageddon was due soon, and if the end of the world was nigh, a spokesman for Heaven said, "Well, 'end', 'world', these are such loaded concepts. I mean, some people think the world ended when Ted Turner colorized 'Citizen Kane'."
Quayle's campaign staff did not expect their candidate's departure from the mortal plane to affect his run for the Presidency in 2000, stressing his early and consistent backing of such other not-physically-existing-as-such items as the Internet, Star Wars, George Bush's charisma, and virginity. "Oh yeah, all that digital stuff, this is made for that," said supporter Senator Spencer Abraham. "I mean, he's in Heaven, for God's sakes! How much more virtual can you get?"
The Gore campaign, still deep in negotiations with the Dark Lord, had no comment.
Willfully blind self-indulgent nebbish or amusingly quirky old coot? And how bout that local sports team? Discuss among yourselves.
All names are fake, most places are real, the author is definitely unreliable but it's all in good fun. Yep.
