Quick Clarification

In light of the small avalanche of fan mail I've been receiving from folks checking out this blog after Googling my name, I'd like to make the following public-service announcement:

I am not the same Jennifer Abel who recently went to Beijing as a member of Canada's Olympic diving team. If you don't believe me, then check out her photograph and compare it to mine. Other differences worth noting: I'm an inch taller than she is, several pounds lighter, considerably paler and (sigh) old enough to be her mother, assuming I started young.

old enough to be her mother,

Oh hell, you aren't old. You're not even in your forties yet. Me, I'm literally old enough to have been your father and even I am not old...well not all the time anyway. ;-)

You also look a lot more pissed off than she does.

I still can't stand the way my picture gets compressed on the front page to make me look so pissed off, Windy.

But I'm glad I made this post; I've already sent out a couple of e-mails saying "Thank you, but I'm not the one who competed in Beijing."

I don't know, the resemblance is spooky....A sister perhaps?

several pounds lighter,

Had to work that one in, did you?

Actually, I had no idea as I was pretty much not having enough time to pay attention during the Olympics this year.

I believe Ms. Abel was referring to the cab fare during her recent junket to London.

Ahem...that is just a Freudian slip, I hope. ;-)

BTW, Moose, Jennifer said she sent you my email address - I haven't heard anything out of ya though.

===============================

Anyway, what I wanted to say is:

THE LIGHTS ARE BACK ON! (on my block anyway)

Hallelujah and Praise Jesus! Finally!

When I say I'm going to forward an e-mail address, by God that e-mail will be forwarded.

Forwarded with extreme prejudice.

Oh, I had no doubt of that - none at all. ;-)
