Does anyone else find the monthly "this is how to unsubscribe" emails so annoying that you're sometimes tempted to drop the email list entirely?

Anyway, today being the first, I went through all my monthly internet upkeep habits. I went through and made sure all my April emails had labels, went through my gweep account and deleted all the SPAM (there were 4 valid emails in there, 3 of which were from a certian doc_smiley who keeps forgetting to update his address book).

Your emo alert for today is: Moss.

    Oh Lately It's So Quiet - okgo


Mmm, so I forgot to record my thoughts from the funeral Sunday:

•*blink* My grandfather was a Mason?
•Thanks to my grandfather's and other units, not a single allied ship was lost to U-boats during Operation Overlord. He always claimed that he had been on-board one of his bombers during the D-Day Invasion. I left it out of my earlier biographical post because it was against regulations, and I therefore wasn't entirely sure it was true. But it does seem like the sort of thing he'd do.
•One of the men in his unit sent in a letter telling a story of how, for one of their reunions, one of the men couldn't afford to come. My grandfather flew out to where this man lived, rented a car, drove him out, paid for his hotel room and food, then drove him home, and never told a soul.
•The most negative thing he's ever said about a person that anyone could recall was "He's such a pistsol!"
•Oh, crap, they're playing Taps, where's my handkerchief? We had 3 Navy guys drive up from Groton to honor him. They presented my father with a Flag (pre-folded and in a plastic flag case due to weather) and played Taps. Taps makes me cry. Just thinking about Taps makes me cry.
•Many people complemented me on how I strove to portray him honestly, and how he'd've appreciated his human faults and frailties remembered.

12 straight hours of Smalltalk is hard!
