a sign that I spend too much time here

One of my co-workers recently got back from a conference in Dallas. He was telling me about this awesome burger place that brews its own root beer. And I said, "Oh, Twisted Root?" And he was all, "Yeah! Have you been there?" And I said, "Oh. Um. No. But ah, my friend in Dallas...she likes it and has mentioned it a few times." I was thinking, "No, but my internet friends went there before they had their internet friend baby shower."

Re: a sign that I spend too much time here

  • I worry that if I admit that this has happened to me, I'll have to admit I spend too much time here.

    So, "Ha-ha! Noisy's a loser who is friends with the internet."

    Sometimes I wonder if scientists have never seen a sci-fi movie before. "Oh yes, let's create a super species of deer. NOTHING COULD POSSIBLY GO WRONG." I wonder if State Farm offers a Zombie Deer Attack policy. -CaliopeSpidrman
  • No.  You just have your finger on the pulse of every major metropolitan city.  That's it.

  • I've done that with you NP.

    Oh, I know of this really great cupcake place.  How did I find it?  Um.  I drove past it one day and thought it looked neat...

  • Yeah, I do that all the time.

    I am your friend in Houston thought. Unless you are talking about shamwow and not me, which is cool you know. But I was here first damnit.

  • I feel like 85% of my stories start with "My friend from xxxx...."  I'm always referring to one of you guys.

  • I know you're from Houston Winged. "Friend from Dallas" was easier to explain than "Friend from Dallas met Friend from Houston and Friends from Oklahoma and Friend from Austin." In my head, though, you're all my Friend from Dallas.

    mine too.  now my H has taken great joy in guessing who it is.

    me: My friend in Oregon just bought a new house!

    H: oooh, lemme guess which one it is . . . is it Fenton?

    me: No!  It's Calie.

    H: heeeeey!  I was going to guess her next!  why'd you tell me?

    me: Well, Fenton is from, you know, Fenton, MO.

    H: that makes sense.  Well, congrats to Calie.

  • That's too funny, Tasty, because Mr. Spiderman is the same way.  You and Fenton are always his first two guesses.

    It's okay to admit to Winged that it was me.  I'm awesome, she understands

  • Shh, she might kill us with her murderous pregnancy hormones.

  • You know, I'm just going to gloss over the fact that there was no friend from Louisiana in that list, and understand that you just forgot where I live.  That's it.
