My Great Gay Aunt Alice

We have a joke in my family (for really no reason at all), that whenever we mention my Great Aunt Alice, we add that she is gay (she's not, and was married for probably over 50 years). Whenever we're talking about someone in regards to their homosexuality, we usually add "you know who else is gay? Aunt Alice."  It's an inside joke, I guess. Also, Aunt Alice is also like 80.

hi.  aunt alice left a message last night to say she is NOT gay.  just kidding.  she called to say hi.  i didn't call her back yet because i know she's going to ask if you got the graduation money.  can you please give her a call.  these calls mean a lot to her.


My mom insisted that I contact President Barack Obama, in hopes of getting him as a guest on my "streams from the web" radio show.

hey, kids.  just to let you know, now that you're all old, you're on your own if you want to send a mother's day card to selma.  in the past i usually sent selma a "grandma" mother's day card for you.
so if you'd like to send selma a card:

how pathetic is that.  yeah, that's it.  i'm using selma to disguise the fact that i'm yearning for a mother's day card from you.  i swear, sometimes you guys are like wolverines.

new look, coming soon.
