    Oh man, I like totally know financial adversity. Like, when I turned 24 my daddy told me he wouldn't pay my car insurance anymore. I mean, like, WHOA, thats like an extra 120$ a month I have to cover, and since no one told me all those speeding tickets would raise my rates, I'm like totally caught by surprise. I just feel like such a, ya know, victim and all.

    But through all sorts of like planning and trials and adversity and stuff, I was finally able to get a job at my mom's furniture store. Its like totally hard work, since like a few times a day I have to help someone move a chair out to their truck. Some days I feel a little sore, and have to take a big ole bubble bath afterwards, ya know? But, like, all this adversity and stuff has totally made me understand what it must have been like to be like, a migrant worker in the depression and stuff. I'm sure some of those people who are still alive today have some like, totally amazing stories about how it was hard to pay their car insurance bill, and how they like totally had to buy the discount shampoo and stuff, but they probably talk all slow, and would probably try to like, make people feel bad and stuff. Totally not cool for TV, ya know?

    So this is why I think you should let me onto your show about financial adversity.

    PS. I'm blonde and a 34D.

    Seriously though, if one of you guys gets on the show, it would be a great opportunity to do all sorts of crazy stuff on TV, like spit at cars. If you played your cards right, your section of the show could be a constant advertisement for more serious driving laws and cycling advocacy.

    Just make sure you sport that mess'r, pimp that flat black track bike, and roll them knickers high, baby. Represent.

    peace,
    sam

    RAYGUNNER - will you ask Phildauex out for me? She sounds like the kinda girl I want to meet, but I'm too shy to ask her myself.

    Scruffy, edgy, inked, pierced...yeah... hard-working...most of them...

    ...responsible and attractive for TV? Nice try.

    I wonder if they will get a vet, pro mess for this?
    Or like someone pretty, and vacuous enough to mold? Most of the kids I know don't take any sh*t.

    They should have gone to CMWC, and scoped the crowds.

    Yeah what happened to Puck?

    How many runs did he make on his BMX?

    And he had that beef w/ the guy dying of AIDS?! Dude, crazy!

    Besides, there are plenty of messengers in Chicago.

    my company sent us a message saying that queer eye was looking for messengers, and gave us a phone number to call. i would have called, but i'm afraid about what they would have said about my flannel.

    this is so ironic i can hardly keep from barfing (not that irony in general makes me sick to my stomach).

    hey hard-working americans ages 21-28: did you know you were idiots? you didn't have to work hard - there was tv to give you money just for being pretty!

    hey hard-working americans 29 and over: did you know you don't exist?

    hey hard-working americans of all ages who are unattractive: did you know you don't exist either?


    makes me wanna barf. at least whoever does thid will have totally earned whatever spoke cards the network gives out.
