Today’s amusing email

First, I received a very important swank invite from Sun Microsystems to their Executive Summit for Wireless and Entertainment at SFMOMA, business/cocktail attire! 7-11 pm! I bet there will be big shrimp! This rules! Then, shortly afterwards, I get the item below. Awkwaaaaaard! Name of sender removed because I’ve been there and I don’t want to be shitty to the poor guy.

    1. Yeah, I replied with “No problem, and I sympathize with the situation. Hope 50,000 geeks don’t show up to your soirée.”
