Carnaby Intervenes:

...our parents were socialists. Our mother voted for Bush after her last tax return (before Bush-Gore in 2000). Our father is now a rabid capitalist.

[Very true. The woman who voted for Mondale in '84 told me I was out of the will if I didn't vote for Bush in 2000. (R.I.P. Ma.) As for Dad, it didn't take much to snap him out of socialism. Winston Churchill was right. -Ed]

...I also failed my first drivers test when I ran a red light.

[Ha, I remember that. With me it was a stupid pedestrian. I thought he was going to cross, but he stepped back. I started to go, he stepped out again, etc. -Ed]

...I also have no cable TV. Rabbit ears do just fine.

[Same. The only thing we watch on the boob tube is Conan O'Brien. -Ed]

...Stickwick's cell phone sucks: "I was ju.. gklj... djfk... *beeeeeep* .. *click*" etc.

[Thbbpppttt. -Ed]
