Hey- this guy sent me a friend request on myspace the other day. Or if not him, some other romance book cover model. I asked my beloved spouse why his hair didn't look like those flowing locks, and he pouted. Though I have to admit if a guy has long hair, and mine does, I much prefer the ponytail.

I like it both ways--pony tail or not, long hair is hot. Ooh, a rhyme.

And am I the only person on earth who is intimidated by the social pressures of the whole myspace friends situation? Bethany, how can you go and get all those friends now, after I suffered through high school with you as a wierdo loner? How can you abandon me to popularity now?!

Oh, and here's a really wierd thing about myspace--someone created a fake page as me. I'm being impersonated on myspace! I haven't managed to get the page taken down yet, but it's really wierd.

ha ha ha ha ha ha ha it says you are a man!!!!

Okay- I think that there must be some weirdo creating myspaces for various writers- in fact I saw several like yours from famous older writers and I just kind of thought maybe some company or publicist was saving their name in case they ever needed it. . . like yours they had no friends (except maybe Tom) and had only logged in once. WEIRD

Oh yeah, I am soooo popular, aren't you jealous? Um yeah, right. I just went to my faculty Christmas party and sat and felt like a dork while people discusses something called a Heisman, which sounded like a beer, but wasn't. I'm still just as much of a dork as ever. Or weird loner, was that what you called me? I had Lee with me, he was no help- his natural charisma gets doused when he's with people who like Nascar, they are they kryptonite to his ability to make small talk.

Oh, but my myspace is pretty cool, right?

I know. Thanks weird person who created a fake myspace page about me. Could you have at least gotten my gender right? I mean, god. Now anyone who stumbles upon the page will think I'm a transvestite.

I thought they had stolen my identity to spam people, but why, I don't know. They have my city location correct, which isn't something they'd know from checking me out as an author, so that's bizarre too.

Parties where everyone is talking about NASCAR and crap require serious inebriation to be enjoyable.

I guess your myspace is cool. I'm jealous, so I'm not going to be all over-flowing with the compliments. I'm going to sit here and pout and feel like a wierd loner who has no myspace friends, only someone who is impersonating me.

Here's a funny thing about romance novel cover models: that there are actually guys out there aspiring to be romance novel cover models. I mean, wow. Can you imagine? There was even an American-Idol style contest held recently for romance cover model guys. I think it was hosted by...Gene Simmons??? One of those dudes from KISS, I'm pretty sure.

Yeah, but you have to be pretty cool for somebody to want to impersonate you! Anyway, I have this secret weapon- I can give extra credit for being my friend. Okay- that would make me a real loser- but I could.

You have a cool website. I have a myspace page that I spend two hours a day on when I should be writing- wasting my time and finding pictures of J.W. to send to you.

I sent fake Jamie a friend request. Maybe he'll be my new friend!

 
At 8:27 PM, Blogger Jamie said...

Yeah, I guess maybe I am cooler than you since it never would have occurred to me to go looking for the biggest nerd in our high school on myspace--or anywhere else for that matter. I had a vague but certain idea that all the attendees of our high school simply vanished the day I graduated and got the hell out of there. This is a whole new concept to me: they are all still alive, with lives and kids and ex-spouses and houses and stuff.

Hey maybe we should just construct a whole new persona around this Fake Jamie. All we know about him is that he's a guy, and he looks exactly like me, is my age, and lives in my town.

 
At 8:30 PM, Blogger Jamie said...

Maybe that will be my next blog post...a link to Fake Jamie. We can all befriend him on myspace. This might even motivate me to bust out my own official myspace page.

LOL I've never stepped foot (or finger, or whatever it is) on myspace, so I was going to ask you to post a link. That fake Jamie sounds incredibly...scary. I mean, interesting. I think you're officially famous when people start impersonating you. ;-)

 
At 10:44 AM, Blogger Jamie said...

Okay, let me see if I can find the Fake Jamie link...

Add me as a friend to your REAL Jamie myspace page, james? ;-D (U know if u don't ask for it first, I'll ask u anyway. ;-D!)

 
At 10:32 PM, Blogger Jamie said...

I don't really go on my myspace page at all. I don't have anything on it other than my basic info. I just registered because people kept sending me links to their pages and I needed to have an account to view their stuff. If I set the page up, I'll friend you. :-)

oh what I'm going to have to go through Tim to get your myspace page? when you could be my friend # 426? (if you hurry)

Disaster is likely to wreak havoc in the life of an individual as soon as he becomes victim to erectile dysfunction and the most significant dreadful consequence of erectile dysfunction is that the afflicted man becomes incapable of facilitating erections required for sexual intercourse.

The prescription for Viagra provided by the doctor spells out that the patient suffering from erectile dysfunction seriously need Viagra to treat his disorder and further authorizes the patient to avail of Viagra from the pharmacist.

Generic Viagra is an oral treatment drug that has been developed to combat erectile dysfunction. The fundamental ingredient within the product is sildenafil, which essentially serves to work within the body, through the improvement of the blood supply into the penis, thus along for firmer, longer lasting erections.
