how does spamalot sound? it's monty python and it's a musical
from a 407 phone number, Thursday, July 31, 12:57 AM

That sounds awesome to me, thanks. But I do wonder who your Leila is that you have to explain Spamalot to her. If you were proposing The Music Man to her, or the Lion King, would you have to explain those, too? "It's a musical, and there is a lion..."

funny: my sis got drunk last night. Not funny: she puked and peed in our bed this morning.
from a 518 phone number, Wednesday, July 30, 2:28 PM

When I read this text aloud, here was Leslie's response: "Ewwww puking and peeing in your bed."
Here was my response: "Ewwww having to share a bed with your sister."
hey u up? call me if so. if not - when is marty coming up again?
from a 619 phone number, Wednesday, July 30, 11:05 AM

I don't think so, 619. If Leila's not awake yet, not only can she not call you, but also she cannot text you to tell you when Marty is coming up again. She can't even read your text message! That is the definition of being asleep.

Everybody wants to be a cat. Because the cat's the only cat who knows where its at! LoL
from an 815 phone number, Tuesday, July 29, 5:31 PM

The logic here seems slightly flawed. I do sometimes want to be a cat, but not for the reasons 815 specifies... more because cats get to sleep a lot and seem unlikely to grapple with existential woes. But I guess "knowing where it's at" might be a good reason, too.
Cool sounds good call me about plans

Goddammit, now National Boring Text Weekend has impeded upon my work week, too? I won't have it.

oh my gosh did you see what was going on outside yesterday
from a 661 phone number, Sunday, July 27, 9:18 PM

A text like this heralds the official end to National Boring Text Weekend.

So, what was going on outside on Saturday? My curiosity has been piqued. All I saw was some kids playing basketball, but that may or may not be what 661 was referring to.

Whats up?
from a 904 phone number, Saturday, July 26, 7:23 PM

This was like National Boring Text Weekend.

from a 303 phone number, Thursday, July 24, 9:45 PM

Do you think she means "Travis" as in "'Flowers in the Window,' sounds kind of like Coldplay" Travis? Or do you think she means the skater pothead from Clueless?
