Two Things That Made My Day...

First up we have the greatest e-mail i've ever received, which comes from a reader by the name of Eddy. I get an e-mail from him from time to time and they're always enjoyable to read but i'd say this one takes the cake in a big way....

greetings mortling! hey thats catchy.i luv your warped dry like mine sometimes sense of humor and this web really kicks ass.i did have reservations about it at 1st glance kinda sorta unwarranted.but now as ive looked past my flaws and not yours as there arent any really im an avid reader.yes a tshirts a great idea but get at least 15 customers which wont be too hard at all as youve so many fans.that beer sign was funny but $300 is ridiculous.i could see for an old coke machine,maybe,but not for that old sign as cooool as it may be.what got you writing freddie in the 1st place ill ask?lastly what about a shock waves review as id luv that observation from you.well take it easy and when will you have autographs available?at $5 each its $100/20 people.if 20,000 fans order an autograph its $100,000.but youll need an extra set of hands and many hours/days devoted to that project!hey can i please have a free autograph from you as id cherish it immensely john?it might end up on the floor/wall and darts in it but its the thought that counts.ok ill be responsible and put it in my less desirable bin of sigs.nope,not really no to quote jar jar.ill not do that and on 2nd thought it will be placed in the same folder with stuttering john and erik estrada.you know youve made it when you get those props.take it easy,eddy

Thank you Eddy and I would be honored to be placed side by side with Stuttering John and Erik Estrada, although I highly doubt I deserve such wonderful treatment.

And the second little day maker came from what Jen thought was an embarrassing confession, which she held off on telling me for a year and a half. She admitted that when we first started dating she headed over to Blockbuster and bought a bunch of used horror DVD's and sat in her room watching them, in an attempt to be able to impress me with her knowledge. All it really resulted in was her mom getting concerned about her sanity. I think i've fallen in love all over again. Truth be told, I fell in love the moment I saw Killer Klowns From Outer Space in her collection, a movie she had bought long before she ever knew I was gonna come along and sweep her off her feet. She claims she fell in love the moment I told her I had dead bodies in my crawlspace, which I believe occured on our very first phone conversation, so i'd say we're a match made in the deep dark bowels of heaven, wouldn't you?

Ahh young love ;) You two crazy kiddos were made for one another.

Wow... As for the note, that is... something. What, I don't know, but something.

And HOLD ON TO THAT LADY!

You girlfriend did that?! That's like something out of a rom-com, I'm ridiculously jealous.

Okay, the sheer adorableness of Jen doing that for you proves she's a keeper. ;) Gotta love anyone who tries to understand whatever your bizarre hobby is, rather than belittling it.

Unless it's stamp collecting. Because stamp collectors are fucking EVIL. (please note, I have nothing to base this statement on.)

Ah so sweet. I was happy when my girlfriend went on another date after taking her to see Let the Right One.

Monster Scholar took the words right out my mouth! Great story!

the jaded viewer said...

A horror IQ is almost as bad as having a Vulcan ears. Good for you.

As for our fan mail, the only ones I get are from fans in Eastern Europe ad they keep telling me about this hostel I should visit.

I am kinda scared.

The Frog Queen said...

Ah, great girl....I agree keep her.

Great email, I understand why you like it!!! What a great friend.

Cheers!

Carl (ILHM) said...

Agreed, shes definitely a keeper, but its a good thing she laughed off those dead bodies. We'll see if she sticks around when you have her add the next bag of lime to keep down the smell.

Cins said...

What a sweet story! She's a keeper. I join the chorus if "hold on to that woman"!

Johnny said...

That's what we did on the second date, Carl!
