What did I get, like three right? Sad.

I don’t think this means I’m out of touch. I think this means I wasn’t working for VH-1 when they hired people to rig the online poll. I mean, come on. There’s a reason they made a Creed Behind the Music. I’m just sayin’. And Dave Matthews? VH-1 is the only one holding onto that dream.

There are three magazines that came in the mail today. I end up reading Bust for an hour and then I’m all, “Dammit!”

I have a recap to do. I have other things to do. It’s Friday. I’m supposed to go out tonight and have fun. But instead I spent most of the morning, and most of yesterday fixing forum issues. I know some of you just read these entries and don’t go anywhere near the forum. Just in case you don’t bother, just know that it went a little crazy yesterday. I think things are starting to die down.

For those of you who are participating in the book club, we started discussing Invisible Circus.

And in the Webhead section, I get some slaps on the wrist and have a new article on the death of my handspring.

Yeah, I suck today. But I’ve got to get this other stuff finished up. Plus the Christmas cards. And, if you haven’t done it yet, the secret santa thing ends on Monday. Closes. No more adding your wishlist. Make sure you sign up.

I was struggling with an entry and my column, so I wrote to Omar, who loves it when I write about Lenny Kravitz. He responded:

LENNY KRAVITZ
Hello?

MANAGER
Yeah, Lenny, we need your help. There’s this girl, she’s trying to write a column. She needs some inspiration.

LENNY
Who?

MANAGER
She runs a Web site. Has a column.

LENNY
Oh, it’s for a fan Web site?

MANAGER
No, not really. There are no fan Web sites.

LENNY
Bullshit, man. I just looked on Google. Hey. That’s a cool word.

MANAGER
No, Lenny, the label paid people to put those sites up. There are no real fan sites.

LENNY
I… shit.

MANAGER
So can you do it?

LENNY
Yeah, seeing I don’t have any fan mail to answer or chat rooms to hang out in now. This isn’t for some bullshit awards show, is it?

MANAGER
Oh, I was gonna talk to you about that.

LENNY
What’s the damn address?

MANAGER
www.pamie.com

(ten minutes later)

LENNY
Tell her to write about this Christmas card exchange. About how she started this online card exchange thing and now it’s out of control and her hand’s gonna hurt so bad from writing them out she’s not gonna be able to play “Fly Away.”

MANAGER
She doesn’t play guitar.

LENNY
Or type or masturbate, I don’t care! Man, this is coming out of your ten percent.

MANAGER
Gotta go. Hey, you’re up for a Hispanic Alma Award this year.

LENNY
But I’m not hispan–… fuck.

And this concludes Lenny Kravitz week here at Squishy. He was on VH-1. He was on David Blaine. He was in two entries. He was playing at the club I was in last night. It’s been all Lenny, all the time.

“Was that really an entry? Weird. Because to me it felt like SUCK.”
