He Had Mail

17 Oct

You’re all forgiven for the birthday cards that never arrived.

And now I think I know why I never got those issues of Entertainment Weekly and Rolling Stone too.

Apparently, they were all at Alan Gagne‘s house.

He’s one of the mailmen for the Coolidge Corner area — or was, until he was found dead in his apartment last week by a supervisor who was making sure Gagne was alright.

For many years (since the 1980s apparently), and for no apparent reason, Gagne had been holding onto people’s mail. Sure, much of it was junk (circulars and other crap), and I thank Gagne for not delivering it to me, but a good chunk of it was normal, everyday, first class mail.

Thankfully, Gagne never opened it, so I suppose there’s a chance I’ll finally get that card you told me you sent three years ago. Maybe I’ll also get my copy of the current issue of GQ, which still hasn’t arrived.

(In all seriousness, poor Alan Gagne. I hate to make fun of the recently deceased.)

What Day Is It, Kids?

17 Oct

Since it’s Argyle Wednesday, just thought I’d post this lovely pic of Britney Spears walking around L.A. wearing a nice argyle sweater. (Thanks to Celebrity Terrorist.)

In honor of the day, I too am wearing an argyle sweater, just as I do on most Wednesdays.

And if BritBrit is also wearing one, then you know it’s trendy.

And yes, admitting that I celebrate “Argyle Wednesday” — in addition to Tie Thursday — confirms that I am a loser. Just in case there was any doubt. Continue reading

Making Plans

17 Oct

Since it seems that Lindsay Lohan and I both seem to have the same life plan — we both want to be married by the time we’re 30 — I would like to publicly offer to marry Ms. Lohan and make an honest woman out of her.

LiLo, will you marry me? I’m not doing anything on Saturday. Can you meet me here in Boston? Consider this also your invitation, my lucky readers.

(Hopefully Lindsay won’t notice that I’m actually 32 and clearly missed my “deadline.” It’s alright, though. Some things are better late than never.)
