I moved back into my dorm room yesterday afternoon. Those of you who are long-time readers of this blog know my move-ins and move-outs tend to go horribly, but this one went remarkably well, with no real problems or incidents. Well, aside from the fact that my internet connection still isn't working. I'm told it is a "network-wide problem," but all I know is that I have yet to move in here, whether at the start of the year or after a vacation, and have both the cable and internet hookups working simultaneously.
Hopefully everything will be up and running again at some point today and I can get back to my blogging and writing routine. In the meantime, I present to you the single most sarcastic e-mail I have ever received (which is really saying something) ...
From a reader named Dan, in response to my January 13 entry about going to the Canterbury Park Card Club for the second time:
Just want to say thanks for today's exciting update on your poker site, aarongleeman.com! The minutiae of a small-time poker maven can be very interesting indeed, and I think I speak for many when I say that you operate the best two-bit poker blog on the internet. I know you can't take everyone's request, but I thought it might be worth a try to ask you to provide us, your loyal readers, with more updates on Jimmy Kimmel. Also, please let us know how many Sprites you have tomorrow, as well as the next day, and how these may have effected your significant bladder. Take care!
Gotta love those e-mails!
