Alexplorer Goes Time Traveling...

If you're just joining this series already in progress, then it means you don't have a time machine, so here's the short version: Every Tuesday (your present), I come back from my adventures time-traveling around MySpace and fill you in on what happened to people from my past as they keep slippin', slippin', slippin' into the future.

Ah, here's one now...



Donna

Then:
My ex-wife worked with Donna when they were sophomores in college.  Donna would go on endlessly about how she had recently adopted the Mormon faith which was why she couldn't have coffee or tea or soda or sex before marriage.  Obviously she was a hypocrite.  Sure, we could forgive her for lusting after my gay roommate Jack, but then the fact that she gave it up for the fat, stupid redneck she was dating... oh, come on.

When my ex transferred to my college the next year, Donna sold her a dorm fridge, then decided she wanted it back and was only "renting" it to her (in spite of the fact that she not only said otherwise, but also charged her what you would pay to buy a used one).  She got pissy about that among other things, and my ex quite happily stopped talking to her since she wasn't good for much more material than this couple of paragraphs.


Now:
I wouldn't have found her were it not for the fact she and Jack kept in touch and he was on her friend list.  Hopefully she has come to terms with the fact that he's gay the same as he has.

She recently married some guy who looks like he's nearly twice her age (I swear that's not her dad), and she has a couple kids already.  Her hypocrisy and lack of creativity are simultaneously on display in her profile in which she continues to declare herself a Mormon yet she admits in one of those mindless surveys that stand in for any substantial attempt at a profile that she prefers cappuccino to coffee, Coke to Pepsi, and that she's been drunk (though claims she hasn't had alcohol lately). 

All things considered, I don't know that we can believe anything she says.  For example, she also responded with an unqualified "Yes" to the survey question "Do you find yourself attractive?"


Hypothetical letter I'll probably never send to her:
Donna,

In light of the inconsistencies in your profile, your stated beliefs, and (quite frankly) your entire life up to this point, we feel it is in the interest of the country to audit you from birth to present.  Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
