Robin Williams and the mysterious floating sign

Fellow Wilkes-Barrians…. Did anyone see that airplane flying around the valley yesterday afternoon around 2-4pm?  It had some kind of message or banner hanging from the back of it.  I seen it several times and looked to see what it said, but it was way too high up to read.  I think there was a segment on WNEP about it yesterday, but I missed it and they didn't post the article to the website.  I don't know if anyone could see the banner, I thought banner guys were supposed to be flying lower than that.

Anywho… I got about 3 hours of sleep last night because I didn't feel good and I couldn't fall asleep.  Finally around 3am I gave up and took 2 tylenol pm.  That must have knocked my ass out because I can't remember anything after that.  Around 2am I was watching crapcess hollywood, mind you, not by choice, but because nothing else was on except infomercials.  Quite honestly I couldn't careless who Angelina Jolie is fucking this week.  Anyway, a girl was interviewing Robin Williams and he would make a stupid joke every time the girl tried to ask another question.  It was so obnoxious and irritating.  I wish I could have changed places with her for a nanosecond so I could put him in his place.  Yeah, Robin.  We get it.  You're funny.  Move on. This post was more funnier in my head at 2am.  Blah.  I need sleep.

Wrong Number

By M Davies   /     Oct 04, 2006  /     The Pre-Dooce File  /     0 Comment

I have been getting really weird phone calls at home lately.  It started a few weeks ago when I noticed a Williamsport # come up on my caller id.  I figured I'd answer the phone because it may have been one of Rich's friends.  It wasn't….  It was the Williamsport Gazette calling in regards to my home telephone number that they seen on some billboard advertising for some business.  I really do not understand how my number could be up on a Billboard in Williamsport as it's a Wilkes-Barre number, but I'm thinking alright whatever I'll go with it.  I told him he called my house in Wilkes-Barre, and not whatever business he was looking for in Williamsport. The guy just would not believe me and get the hell off of the phone.  I insisted to the guy that I've had the number for about 6 years now, and he was like "Um, ok" as if he did not believe me.  Whatever, why would I lie about how long I've had my telephone number for?  I kind of put this out of my mind as one isolated incident.  Maybe he wrote the phone number down wrong.  Very possible.  Yesterday, some woman called like 3 times within a 5 minute period from another Williamsport 323 number.  She was asking me if it was so and so studio.  I told her no, that this was Michelle Davies and she was calling Wilkes-Barre, not Williamsport.  She seemed confused and hung up. So if anyone in Williamsport is reading this, please email me, I want to find out if anyone knows what the name of this studio is that is advertising the wrong telephone number.  I possibly thought that maybe it was the same number as mine but with a 717 area code, but apparently all of Williamsport and the outskirts are the 570 area code so that blows that theory out of the water.  What kind of studio is this anyway?  I hope its not a number for a strip club or something.
