mmm i love a bowl of luke warm stuff..
soo my parents are in Florida for the week. this wouldn’t impact the day to day life of a normal, functioning add-ult, but I, however, am not. therefore, I live with my parents. That is, until they cant handle my post-grad woes anymore and ask me to move out. I have a suspicion that this will never happen as my mom talks about me living in Florida with them when they’re old and senile. Moreover, when they’re out of town, i fight my basic, primal, high schooler-esque urge to say “KEGGER AT MY HOUSE.” Contrary to what my [seldom] thrown floor fits may have you believe, I am no longer 16. Instead, I sit alone at my house. I watch gossip girl and desperate housewives reruns (thanks, syndication). back to my point, my parents have a week to themselves, in the nice, non-bipolar Chicago weather. However, my father — recently introduced to the texting and gchat phenomena — insists on asking me about my every move and plan, even while bicoastal. his fascination but total lack of experience with computers, typing, texting, cell phones, and overall technology is comical. Comical, not in the “ohh-em-gee-you’re-old-and-clueless” way, but the “if-you-knew-it-any-better-it-wouldn’t-be-funny” way. Some of my favorites:
the gchat life-warnings:
Frank: keep an eye on your MacTop when you’re on the bus & train.
the iconz and stalking:
Frank: where are YOU!
Frank: i just never knew! B-)
Frank: is that Ruchanator there?
And, my favorite, the self-made email nicknames:
Give me an address to mail your stuff to and I will get it out today.
what does Y-B-D mean…
Your best daddy!
Thanks, dad. Your complete disregard for proper technology usage and slightly skewed current social lingo keeps me entertained. Once the comic relief wears off, I am left with the paranoid feeling that my macbook will be stolen whilst doing the RedEye sudoku on the metra or that selling my ipod on ebay will result in a nigerian scam.
reminds me of that commercial where the creepy guy is finishing the girls sentences about his mini computer. soon netbooks are going to be synonomous with creepers.
