This made me laugh. It's a news story detailing how 'virtual text friends' will help kids with asthma. 'Max' will become their virtual text 'buddy' and send them messages like (and I quote): "Hav U taken Ur inhaler yet?" "Yo dude, it's Max reminding u 2 take ur inhaler." Now, this is all well and good (and very, very sad), and I'm wondering how it could be spread to further areas. Such as: "Yo, Squirrell, have u got up 4 work yet?" "Havnt u got a clan match?" "Dude, ur gf needs servicing!" "Its time 4 u 2 hav anthr beer!" I'm looking forward to your suggestions.

Secondly, this is probably the last update I'm going to do for IAmCal.com - thank you for your time, it's been fun. I'll have to convince Cal that IAmCalAndHeIsMatt.com is a good idea.

See y'all =]
