I'm So Ronery

As is my wont, I was just watching the late-night SNL reruns on the TiVo, and one of those "Chat With Hot Babes Until You Squirt" commercials came on. I always make sure to pay close attention to these, so as to educate myself on how better to interact with women (I currently know 65% of their secrets, and am fast encroaching on the final 35%). For example, let me drop this piece of edutainment on yo' ass: they want to talk to me, NOW, live. That's right. Live.

But today, there was something particular about the LiveLinks commercial that caught my eye. A person who looked suspiciously liked Evangeline Lilly was doing her best to convince me that chatting live would be the best idea right now.

My first thought: "That woman looks like Evangeline, whose name is like mine, only longer."

My second thought: "It's probably her not-famous sister or something."

3rd: "Or something..."

Etc.: "Nope, that's her. Evan!"

"Uh. Maybe I better not think her name like that. I'm kinda weirding myself out."

"Wow. She is so much hotter since she decided not to eat as much."

Then I called the number and we talked for a while. We're going to play skeeball next weekend.
