the former 11th place

faithful readers, in the midst of november, my phone got a complete system upgrade, going from "donut" to "froyo."  it was as good a time as any to wipe my system and, with that, to tally up the texts.

as always, it's interesting to see the dynamic in how the numbers change and who i spend my time texting with.

1. joel 567
2. jaime 468
3. emily 385
4. jess 294
5. brandon 283 (hey, look! i have a friend in texas!)

you did it joel, fair and squarecongratulations.  : )
(and yet in this current round you aren't even on the charts...)

Now that I got that out of my system.

I'd like to thank my mom, my dad, my wife, my Clearplay DVD player, my Netflix instant viewing - you helped make this possible. You set goals and. . .you think they're unattainable, but they're not. They're not! You can do it! Don't give up! As a famous son once said to his father, "If you put your mind to it, you can accomplish anything."

Jeff, I'd like to also thank you for a wonderful homage-post. I am flattered, truly flattered. And now that we're done moving and the holidays are over, I can get back to doing important things like watching movies and texting you about them.

Here's to another month of film conversations!
