Updates

So I'm sure you all recall that a while ago I posted an article about David Miller talking a suicidal man off the railing at city hall and I said several candid things about him and how I think he's awesome. Well, Bill, who is not only my godfather but an information nexus decided that David Miller must know about this and emailed my comments to his EA who showed them to him. Apparently he blushed. And then, when I found out about it I blushed. Do you ever remember being in middle school and having a secret or not-so-secret crush on someone and then some other kid tells the person you have a crush on and you feel incredibly silly. That's how silly I feel. I can't help it though, remember the bad old days when Mel was the mayor and his crazy antics and the time he was afraid to go to Africa lest he be "boiled in a pot"? Remember that, it was bad. I can't even imagine what Mel would have done if there was a suicidal guy outside his office wanting to talk to him. He probably would have sent out the cardboard cutout he had of himself in his office and tried to get a police officer stand behind it and pretend to be the mayor. Or maybe he would have gotten so frazzled he would have given himself another black eye with a phone receiver. Sheesh!
On another update topic, I mentioned that my house guest had gotten food poisoning at a hot dogs cart and rashly mentioned which one it was, on further reflection, we decided that that wasn't the only place he had eaten that day and that it might have also been possible that he'd gotten sick from draught beer from dirty beer taps. I've now taken that post down and I apologize for any business that the hot dog vendor lost as a result of my post (I doubt that he lost much business from you folks though - all you tofu eating, PC, vegetarian SOBs!)

maybe you should just ask miller out on a date, and quit getting bill to do your dirty bidding...

Jennifer said...

Ummm... I think he's married, but I'm not sure. Bill, do you want to weigh in on this?
That would be quite the scandal, a mayoral affair. On the other hand, I might be the only one who cares about municipal politics.

You wrote this whole update just so that Bill would send it Miller again...right?

Jennifer said...

Yes Merdith, it's an attempt to keep Bill doing my dirty bidding.

Also if anyone knows Prince Albert of Monaco, please mention to him that my hobbies include bobsledding, badminton and childbearing.

david miller is a happily married man, I'm sorry to tell you. good work bill.

paul said...

oh, I forgot to ask...who do you mean when you say his "EA"?

Jennifer said...

I mean his executive assistant, but I don't know who it is.
As for his happy marriage, I'm glad for him, perhaps the two of them can go out for dinner with me and Prince Albert of Monaco or King Sihamoni of Cambodia

paul said...

yeah, it was the name I was looking for. do you think you could find out for me? I'm just curious if it's still jane after all these years

sly said...

or maybe you could all come and party down with me and prince william! (or maybe prince harry. he smokes grass don't ya know...)

Jennifer said...

why don't you ask the information nexus?

We have not *really* sunk so low as to dating the monarchy, have we?
Damn I miss you all!

Jennifer said...

You know, I've been called 'princess' so many times over the years (including Aaron who called me a princess last night when I asked him to take out the overflowing garbage) that I've decided to embrace it and be one for real if I can. And King Sihamoni and I have interests in common, we both like ballet, he's in support of same sex marriage.

Jennifer said...

Also, I've stooped so low as to be friends with all you jokers! The monarchy wasn't such a reach after that.
