just on the fyi, state of indiana is undergoing major things. from the looks of recruiter ads and job posting to the indy-jug, some major opportunity is here. i believe i even saw the magic phrase "eighteen month contract" being thrown around. ima thinkin bout getting my teeth all up in that juicy if my current insurance gig doesnt pan on the extension. if i recall, the whole project set is 35$ mil.

Please use real punctuation. Your stupid three period crap makes me judge you as being a complete tool.

Thank you have a nice day.

uh. . .who said i wasn't a tool? i mean most people who are reading this blog know me. . .and therefore have already fulfilled the "bryan is a tool" realization prerequisite to reading this blog. it's not my fault that "blogging" was embraced by the hipster community and henceforth everyone blogging must be "hip". . .and when did grammar and punctuation become hip anyway? i'm 28. . .that's like the tail end of generation X. . .everyone whose read the liner notes of pearl jam's ten knows that complete sentences let alone correct punctuation is faux pas for gen-Xers. . .i mean seriously the blog was started so that my mommy would know i was safe. . .how un-hip and toolish is that?

Dear Anonymous,

I'd like to kick your ass!

Anonymous,

You really don't wanna make all of Bryan when all his relatives read the blog, it makes us angry--we're a somewhat southern people and will do scary crazy things to people who criticize our family.

Only real tools leave anonymous messages.

Bryan, you're not a tool, you might be a ass, but you're not a tool. Anyway, your kin and we love ya.

Bryan,

Grammar and punctuation have been hip since people could read, write, and speak. The style of writing we choose and the manner in which we speak has always been a way for people to judge us and who we are. This is especially true in this digital age, when words are read before a glance is exchanged. This is the way we present ourselves to the world. Also, you point out that "complete sentences and correct punctuation is a faux pas for gen-Xers," which shows that you do think that grammar and punctuation are hip.

You stated that this blog is so your mother knows that you are safe. Quite honestly, I think a phone call would be a better option. A live, interactive, one-on-one conversation would work much better than a blog for the world to see.

haha. . .so this totally begs the question. . .was nicole the original anonymous poster? perhaps things got complicated when grandama threatened to kick her own granddaughter's ass? just a hypothesis. . .seriously no hard feelings either way. my post was sort of a gen-Xer joke anyway. . .i purposely cited pearl jam because as all gen-Xers know. . .it's a band full of tools.

nicole can i have access to your blog?

Nicole said...

Sorry, my blog is personal. It's really more of a diary than anything else.

birdchick said...

I never understand the need to take bloggers to task for how they run/write their blog. It's their place to do what they want so if Bryan wants to have the mad stylin' punctuation, let him do it. If someone doesn't like it, they don't have to read it.

As for phone calls, Bryan is overseas and phone rates are high. No phone conversation in our family is ever a quick hello, you're lucky if you get out under 20 minutes.

Hmmm, now this has me thinking...when was the last time I a live, interactive, one-on-one conversation with any of my nieces?

Angela said...

When,Bird chick did you ever have an interactive one on one conversation with anyone.Your usual is to over take and dominate the conversation.

Nicole said...

Here is the issue with blogs, employers look at them. As well as looking at sites such as Facebook and MySpace. You know this because it helped you get a job, or at least that is the way it has been made to sound to me.

As far as a live interactive conversation, I'm sorry that we haven't. We are both very busy. Your career is taking off, and I am taking 18 credit hours and working 20-25 hours a week. I felt bad for not being able to see you when you were in town, but I didn't know you were coming until the night you came in. I wish you would have emailed me to let me know. Because at that point, it was too late to request days off of work, and to get my three papers and two speeches written in addition to my regular homework load.

Nicole said...

Bryan,

The sad thing is that grandma could kick my ass. I got scared and came out of hiding. I thought she might send the cats to hunt me down. Haha. I was trying to be funny and it didn't work. Guess no one got the joke. Actually I thought I was signed in from G-mail still. It was past my 10pm bedtime. Has to feel good to know everyone has got your back though.

Sharon,
Phone cards. 10 cents a min. No connection fees. :-P

Nicole said...

Hey Bryan,

Still feeling homesick? I think we brought the home to you. ;-)

birdchick said...

Hey, angela, who do you think I learned it from?

;)

birdchick said...

Hey, Nicole, you think Bryan is rethinking an early return? LOL.

And I don't you should worry about grandma Nikki. If you're gonna be afraid of anyone in our family, it's Aunt Robin. We're lucky she's too busy for blogs.

I'd like to thank my dear nephew Bryan for sponsoring this family argument.

Actually, this has inspired me, we should start a family argument blog.

becka said...

Wow. Mom was right. This is a blog out of control. Who knew my brother moving to Saudi Arabia would give the family the opportunity to have their wacky arguments in public?

p.s. Nicole, I think you should be worried about Grandma. She's small, but she's quick.
