Name dropping is my second favorite vice*, so I simply had to print this email.
I guess that Jan got home from a hard day's work, popped a cold one, cranked up the laptop and said "Dude, I'll see if Greg Patterson wants to be friends on Facebook." Now I picture her sitting by the computer eagerly waiting for my confirmation. Unwilling to let her sweat, I confirmed immediately. I'm friend number 180.
OK, so it's a nice fantasy. I suppose the email was generated by an intern in some windowless office at Highground...but even that's cool.
Footnote: When I mention that name dropping is my second favorite vice, people naturally assume that my favorite vice is coffee, but that's not true. My favorite vice is actually even more addictive and satisfying.
