We werent' that close, mind you, i haven't seen him since i was 16 or so, but STILL, he's family. whenever i would go visit my dad when i was little, we would always go out to aunt jean and uncle harry's cabin and go canoeing or fishing or jumping off the docks or whatever.
he had thee coolest atari games when i was little.
as for being online, they told me that i had to wait for them to call me after my home phone was turned on? i came home for lunch, my phone was on, and i remembered how i used to have qwest.net for my onlineness, but they never seemed to KNOW i had it, so i tried, and... viola!
i found this old withered joke in my inbox from 7/01, and it reminded me of a post i did recently (*whew* some emails down, only 938 left to go!)
