Strange Days Indeed

Something is not right in the Universe. I don’t know what it is exactly, but something just ain’t right. The World just feels weird today.

Reason Number 1: I have a $50 gift card to Best Buy. I went to the store at lunch and bought…nothing. Not. A. Single. Thing. From. Best Buy. Nada. For me to still have an unused $50 gift card after spending close to an hour in Best Buy is wrong. It’s not supposed to happen. It’s like Elvis turning down a fried peanut butter and banana sandwich. Or Ron Jeremy shaving his body. Or Michael Moore giving GWB a video camera for his birthday. It’s just not natural.

Reason Number 2: I think I’ve been dumped by the Internet Girlfriend (IG). I say “think” because I can’t tell if she’s kidding or not…although I have a strong suspicion that she isn’t. And, strangely enough, if it’s true, it actually hurts more than I expected.

So anyway…if you have any ideas as to how I can make the World right again, let me know. Gift suggestions would be appreciated.

    Internet GF? Nothing at Best Buy? What the heck is going on with you babe??

    If you don’t mind me being foul (I’m sure you don’t) I think for most guys, dollars spent at Best Buy are related to hours spent, er, by yourself, reading PC Weekly or your geek mag of choice. Maybe you just haven’t had enough, uh, time with your geek mags!

    As for the IG, meh – I never liked her anyway!

    Ari – If I only knew.

    Smitten – Believe me, I’ve spent plenty of hours, er, by myself. Maybe it was reading The Economist on the plane instead of PC Weekly that has me all bumfuzzled.

    i think you should tell IG to please use the emotion faces, so that you will be able to detect her tone. and if it’s a bad tone, tell her to fuck off. i’m not sure i can offer any kind of explanation about best buy. that’s just weird.

    Oooh, coincidentally I just finished my soundtrack for a broken heart, and a few entries below that are all the submissions from my readers, so if you are looking musical therapy to get your world spinning the right way again have a peek.

    You could make her a cd full of heart broken songs that will make her realize that with out her you are….

    buy the movie Napoleon Dynamite at Best Buy and you will laugh so hard that you will forget all about tired old IG

    If you give me the Best Buy card, I’ll be your Internet Girlfriend for 2005.

    And because I am an amazing IG, I will use the card to buy you the perfect present.

    See? Two problems solved…
