a little something extra

Good thing they love me anyway

This is the email I just sent to my family:

Dear folks,

This is it! The holiday decorations are up at all the shopping malls, the chorus is rehearsing Christmas music, the ground is white with snow (well, okay, not so much with the snow part, at least not around here). That must mean...


Yes, it's early. Yes, I mean it. See how charmingly unpredictable I am, sending this a few weeks ahead of the usual time?

So let some visions of sugarplums dance in your heads, and then publish those visions (haiku or sonnet format optional, and I dare you) forthwith. ErinKathleenthismeansyou.

Ah, you make me laugh.

My newest goal in life is to be the first poster of a comment on a Lagniappe entry. Tripp, you da man (and, I like this new picture of yours rather a lot, but what are you looking at over there?)!

Charming indeed, dahling. What have I been saying all these years?

And, can I be the first to request a Daisy Red Ryder 200-shot Carbine Action Air Rifle? Oh wait, I'm not family. DAMN!!!

Dude, as if I'd give you a gun even if we did share DNA!

So wait - is this to say that other family members of your might qualify for the Meeegan-NRA-Special just because they aren't *me? Hey Shannon, ask Megan for a gun! And then can I borrow it? :)

And besides, down at the atomic level all of our atoms are identical to one another anyway, so, er... yeah.

* disclaimer : I wouldn't have the 1st idea what to do with a gun, unless somewhere in Atlanta there's some sort of turn-in-your-gun-and-receive-free-iPod-in-return program going on, and even then you wouldn't catch me anywhere near it - there's poeple with guns roaming around that place, for christ's sake, it's fucking dangerous!

Ben, I wouldn't give anybody a gun. Even if they were related to me.

So in the space of 3 posts, I have gone from E* to Erin to ErinKathleenthismeans you. PLanning to publish my date of birth or SSN next time? ;)

Sorry, I had to remove my own comment because it contained an egregious typo.

Erin, I won't publish any numerical data, but I might include your dog's name!
