Just Need Some Space...?

This is awkward. I got this e-mail this morning.

Hey Joe,
We've missed you at Myspace lately. Plain and simple, we think you should come back. And here's why.
The new Myspace provides the best social entertainment experience on Earth.
You can now follow your favorite topics in music, movies, celebs, and TV and get instant updates from around the web.
The new Myspace gives you custom recommendations so you can discover more of what you love and connect with new like-minded friends.


I have been working on my response.

Hey, MySpace,

Good to hear from you. Sounds like you are doing well, which is great. Very happy to hear that. Sorry I haven't seen you in so long. Seems like years! Where does the time go? Thanks for the link. I actually lost your url. Got a new computer, didn't have my old bookmarks or passwords, etc, you know how it goes.

I appreciate the invite to come back, but I have to be honest here. The reason I haven't been visiting you is because I have been seeing someone else. For a few years now. And, yes, if you do the math, I was seeing them while still seeing you. I feel like a real heel and I never meant to hurt you. They were just very persistent and eventually won me over. What can I say? Social media can be so fickle, right?

Well, I wouldn't be surprised if you never wanted to hear or see from me, again. But, if you're up for it, I wouldn't mind getting together for coffee and chatting about old times. When you're ready. Tell Tom I said hello. I always thought he was nice.

- Joe

P.S. Oh, hey. Have you ever heard of Friendster? You two should meet and hang out. I think you have a lot to talk about.

On the off chance that anyone still reads this thing and wants to know what RvD is up to in the new year, here are a couple of projects we're woring on:

  1. Writing and performing a piece for WBEZ's Alternative History of Chicago Theatre (Abridged) on Wednesday, March 2nd.
  2. An eBook version of our first show, The Greatest Stories Never Told... Told!
  3. A fundraiser evening called "St. Drunken's Day."
  4. Our as yet untitled Spring/Summer show about mutant animal sketch comedy performers in futuristic Nazi Illinois.
  5. Cake for everyone!
So, we have that to look forward to.  Hope to see some of you people out at one or all of these.
