Hello everyone--
Until Monday, August 6th I will be on vacation without any internet connection at all (not even dial up!) and no cell phone.

I actually don't know if I can make it til then without any email, voicemail, Facebook, Speak Up or Blogger, but we'll see.

Til then, cheers!

hey darlin',
haven't checked any of your rants and raves in awhile, and feeling so non-cosmopolitan, not being in the urban epi-center of the USA, so have to get my smart-fix every once in a while. nice post on that commencement speech. why don't MY friends send me that stuff, instead of You Know You're a Texan When... jokes. and i'm only texan by default. my own damn fault.

and tough to be a bad boy, when people spell your name wrong. no respect, i say. Is Zapolski spelled with an I or a Y? who can you trust, if not debbie millman?

one of these days will send you those movies i made in st. louis.
