Asbestos, Ikea and WP

Ok, I’ve gotten a number of emails in the last few days asking me what I think of Matt. ‘Scuze me, but what the hell do you possibly believe I could think of Matt? He’s my brother! I understand that some folks don’t get along w/ siblings, but I like mine. So, lets put this to rest once and for all:

My brother is a genius. He is also handsome, and possessing of a wickedly funny sense of humor. He got my father’s knack for anything electronic, and my Mother’s talent with design. He’s incredibly talented in music as well. I would detest him, if he wasn’t so good natured. He’s also incredibly aware of what he wants for a guy his age. I enjoy spending time with him, and I miss him more than anything when he’s gone. He’s very amiable, and responds to spontaneous changes in plans well. I don’t tell him these things often enough, so I’m happy to put them in print. I can’t even find the words to describe to you how much I love him.

That being said, I hope all you morons who sent me nasty emails feel stupid. This is just the dumbest thing in the universe to make this much fuss over. I always try to say something nice about everyone, so here you go: I hope that this brings a few of you guys out of your mother’s basements for a while; maybe you can meet a girl who won’t fall immeadiately asleep when you bitch about this.

Actually, a couple of these emails were very well worded and actually quite polite. I apologize to you few, however if you have any issues or questions, please address them to people that actually work on or for WPress. I have not answered your emails b/c I don’t know HOW to answer them. I will not forward them on. You are responsible for them.

For those that have sent support, or have been kind, thank you so much. I’ll pass on your comments to Matt (see, B-Doll, I really can do quotes!!!), as I’m sure he will appreciate them.

Other than that, I just got some furniture to put together. This has convinced me that the folks @ IKEA are complete sadists, as well as mad geniuses who must design all their furniture in zero-G environments. But I will overcome. I will conquer this challenge. That is all I have to say on this matter. I have to work tomorrow. Good Night, Ladies and Gentlemen. Hope to “see” you soon.

    Send them to me. I know what to do. Seriously. 🙂

  3. IKEA, being a Swedish company, once had a huge poster just outside of Stockholm with some few letters on it, written in yellow on blue background (which is the colours in the Swedish flag as well) with a picture of one of their flat packages in the far back.

    So if you overcome, you’re one of the smart ones. Do please join the club; we got t-shirts 😉
