Conversation of the night with my ma:
"Marianne, do you know Fancypants' email address? Can't you find it on facebook or something?"
"Let me check... no, sorry, she doesn't have it listed. Just text her."
"I don't want to. Do you think it could be Fancypants@gmail.com?"
Laughing hysterically, "What the hell? You're just going to make up an email address and hope it goes to her?"
"You mean I can't?"
Obviously computer intelligence skipped a generation... yes, I know they weren't around when she was my age. Also, Fancypants is my new last name for my gmail account. I wasn't fond of people knowing my full name. So, now you get to receive emails from Marianne Fancypants.
