2003 02 27 - Turtles and Playboy

I have a friend who is a member of an elite (I use the term loosely) organization called The Turtles.
This is a regular 'guy' type group wherein they get together for card games and long weekend escapes to play football, baseball and whatever else suits their fancy.
Over time I have met a few of them and have enjoyed their company. To protect their identities I'll be using codenames: There's Travis (my friend), Dudley and Mr. Shmear to name a few.
So what you ask?
Well, I have been asking to become a member for some time now and they are always very standoffish when approached. To date I have not received the yeah or neigh I have so long awaited.
However, now that I have been on Entertainment Tonight I thought I'd see if my notoriety carries any weight and asked again. Travis said he'd check with the boys and get back to me. I'm sure there will be tonnes of jokes had at my expense - I can't wait to share them with you as they come in.


Here's something else that's been going on today.
I was surfing the net the other day and came across an absolutely stunning Playboy model. Her name is Jodi Valdes.

I sent her an email asking if she would be interested in exchanging banners to help promote each other's site.
She wrote back, and was as charming as she is beautiful - A rare combination for someone as attractive as her. Here's something else about her. She looks just like a friend of mine - which is another reason why I was so intrigued. Secretly, I'm going to have to see if I could back order the specific Playboy issue to see what my friend might look like naked.

So, if you hear the water running, it's because I'm washing my hands.
