smith FWD: : Silent prayer for Jennifer Hudsons family.. If you have a heart keep this going.
from an 860 phone number, Tuesday, October 28, 11:15 AM

This text was actually how I found out about the tragedy that has befallen Jennifer Hudson's family. After I received this message, I immediately went to Yahoo!News to find out what was up, on the (correct) assumption that, if there was news about a past American Idol contender, Yahoo! definitely have an article about it. Sadly, the same cannot always be said for the New York Times.
Drinking non alcoholic beer is like going down on your cousin,,sure it taste the same but its just wrong. Keep it going!

What concerns me most about this text is that this is not the first time I have received it.

from a 908 phone number, Monday, October 27, 2:15 PM

908 is Central New Jersey, which isn't ridiculously far to have to travel after a meeting in Philadelphia... but it's far enough that I, for one, would not be thrilled about the commute.

This reminds me of a conversation I once witnessed on the subway, in which this guy pulled out his iPod, and his girlfriend said admiringly, "Oh my God, how many iPods do you have?"

And he shrugged in a pleased, chill way, and replied, "Dunno. Like eight or nine, maybe."

And she was like, "Wow."

And I was like, "Lady, does it bother you that your boyfriend is quite probably a thief?"

from a 510 phone number, Saturday, October 25, 6:11 PM

510 must assume that Leila likes him a lot since he provides no information about the play other than that 1) it is small, 2) it is in the city, 3) presumably he will be there. This play could totally blow, for all the detail he has provided. I wouldn't go. (Unless 510 was like really hot.)
