I suppose Anthony Weiner’s twitter relationships could have been categorized as epistolary. Or in his case, e-pizzle-ary.
i miss the weiner.
Well, you seemed sad after the hockey story. I thought I would try to cheer you up with our favorite weeney.
thanks, we need more salacious scandals. i live for them! i was sad all day about the hockey plane crash, yesterday. xsboy is trying out for the SU hockey team, he said last night at tryouts he overheard the team capt say to the coach, we aren’t flying to any games this year are we? and the coach said no, that they didn’t have to, all were close enough to go by bus. All of hockeydom has been affected by this.

surpisingly apt HW from you. How’d your candidate do in the debate last night? oh that’s right, she’s not IN the race... [you know i love you, i just can’t resist riding you over your palinlust ;)]
I did see that her case is in appeal. I honestly have no idea whether she is guilty or not. I think that the evidence got so screwed up that nobody will ever know except for Amanda herself.
I found the debate surprising good across the board, even despite it being sponsored by pMSNBC and the Politico.
