In which it’s the ONLY thing better than Gmail

Keely and Andie arrived home from college yesterday.  Keely arrived first and I was sitting on the couch cuddling with her when Andie arrived.  Daniel was, of course, upstairs playing Xbox so I insisted Keely move over so I could cuddle with both my kids.


We were discussing various and sundry topics when I mentioned that we were probably going to change from Time Warner Cable phone/TV/internet to AT&T UVerse phone/TV/internet because Time Warner Cable is driving me up the fucking wall with my internet.


I know I know that this is boring but it’s the set up FOLKS!


So, at any rate, I mentioned the only downside to the entire thing was that I would have to change my email address, which has been a RoadRunner address FOREVER.  I can’t even begin to imagine what a colossal pain in the ass this will be.  So, here’s the conversation that ensued after that statement.


Keely:             You should have a gmail address.


Me:                  I do have a gmail address.


Keely:             No, not for your blog.  As your main email address.


Me:                  Ok


Keely:             GMAIL is like the BEST THING EVER


Me:                  Really Keely?


Andie:             The best thing ever Keely?


Keely:             Yeah, the best thing ever.


Andie:             Better than a dragon? (Keely loves dragons)


Keely:             Yeah!


Andie:             Better than a dragon that looks like a cat? (Keely ponders this as she adores cats too)


Keely:             YEAH!


Andie:             How about if the cat-looking dragon breathed chocolate?


Keely:             yuck, that’s gross


Me:                  How about if the cat-looking dragon handed you chocolate all the time?


Keely:             (pondering) OK, that’s a toughie but then I’d just get fat so yeah


Me:                  How about if the cat-looking dragon handed you chocolate all the time and the chocolate had NO CALORIES IN IT?


Keely:             Ok, that’s better than GMAIL but that’s the ONLY thing better than GMAIL.


And then we cracked up… sometimes I really love my kids.

    Even better than gmail is that your girls will cuddle ~ lucky.

    Changing email addresses sucks. I have Comcast but HATE HATE HATE their email, hence use yahoo or hotmail. But since Keely says Gmail is the best thing EVER (besides cuddling with your kids) maybe I’ll look into that!

    I almost switched cable companies but didn’t for that very reason. My personal rr email account. I can’t imagine the colossal pain in the ass to change it!

    I love gmail. But they just made all these effed up updates that make it harder to see whats what in your inbox and access your chat. They are REALLY testing my freaking patience right now. I bet a regular, non chocolate giving dragon-kitty would be better than gmail right now.

    In the future, all of our correspondence will be through the cat-looking dragon. Provided, of course, that you hand it chocolate with no calories to give to me. Wait…does the cat-looking dragon have opposable thumbs so it can hold the chocolate and ring the doorbell? I mean, I can have cat-cloaked dragons just walking in unannounced like they own the place. All of my non-dragon looking cats would be annoyed. Just sayin.

      Hahaha…I have a non dragon looking cat too! She never hands out chocolate…EVER!!!

      You are so damn funny

        Neither one of my non dragon looking cats hand out chocolate either! I wonder if that’s some sort of trend among non dragon looking cats…we need to get a focus group started on this. I’ll post an ad on Craigslist.

          Ok, go for it! Im not too familiar with Craigslist but I hope that we find some non cat dragons who DO hand out chocolate..the non calorie kind
