Happy VD.

Ok, so this is supposed to be the day of love.

Big fucking deal.

Well, I'm not really feeling a whole shitload of love right now towards my family. Here's why.
Last week as most of you already know a huge supercell thunderstorm ripped through central Florida, killing 19 people. It wasn't real close to me, but not real far either. Every-fucking-body heard about it. It made the national fucking news...
And would you think that at least one person related to my by blood would have just taken a second or two to pick up the phone, call me and say "Hey Tommy, I heard about the tornadoes and shit down there in Florida... You ok?"
Did that happen?
Fuck no.
I haven't heard a peep out of anyone in Philly for well over three months.
Well, like they always say, you can pick your friends, but you can't pick your family.

Well, we love you RT and are glad you are safe!

Call your family and read them them the riot act ... with love, of course. ;)

I thought it was you can pick your nose, but you can't pick your friend's nose.

I thought it was "Happy Rip-Off the Gullible Consumer Day". And as leazwell said, We Love You, RT! (My family would probably hope I flew away on a broom.) :)

There were tornadoes??? Kidding. Of course I heard all about my Florida neighbors. Glad you're ok.

VD is for losers but I hope you enjoy the day anyway.

There isn't ANYONE in my family I would want as a friend--that is why I don't have anything to do with them! Glad you're fine and have nice day! :)

I never heard about the storms down there.

But still, 3 months is a long time.
