CousinManlius: Hey! I have read the secret history
me: I figured you had, I didn't get that one for you. oh, is it the new year there? what is the future like?
CousinManlius: haha, not yet. in a little under eight hours
me: woohoo! I bet there will be flying cars, I'm hoping for teleportation bots in the new year, I don't want to fly ever again
CousinManlius: i'll keep you posted
me: =) does Seoul do something, like drop some balls or apples or boxes of spam? culturize me.
CousinManlius: ashamed to admit i don't really know. in fact, it was just this morning that i realized that today, and not tomorrow, is the 31st. I'm sure stuff goes on, but the lunar new year is when they really celebrate
me: ah, moon people, ok. well, be sure to look out a window in eight hours, you might see something
CousinManlius: haha, i'll try to do better than that
me: haha. Have you read your dad's review of MethLand in the Wapsipinicon?
me: I found it fantastically quote worthy, if I can't find a full almanac, I'll at least send a photocopy of the article.
CousinManlius: ok, perfect
me: did I tell you what I got myself for my birthday? a hint: I can do it. I'm totally doing it.
me: haha, yep, all five seasons!!! Amazon had a sale day where each season was $15 each if you bought them all
CousinManlius: damn, i hope you bough a set for everyone in the family! have you seen any movies lately?
me: I didn't and not really. You?
CousinManlius: lately, i loved where the wild things are, the hurt locker was pretty good, herb and dorothy and an education were kinda disappointing
me: I really loved where the wild things are, I actually am hazy on all those other titles, I'm currently cinematically fasting- for my birthday video extravaganza-FamilyVideo, pick out 42 movies, then be there eight more hours when they ask me if I want to pick out 23 more titles for free!
CousinManlius: haha, well, family video would be a great place to spend a birthday. they have it all: food, drink, and friends. speaking of, i need to get something to eat and then figure out what i'm doing tonight
me: ok, take some pics, good talk! proud of you! I won't see you out there!
CousinManlius: haha, ok, thanks! you should do it, you could totally do it
me: please, I've already done it 16 times
