The continuing story of a quack who’s gone to the dogs.

vethospitalHeeee’s baaaack…

I received my somewhat-annual e-mail message from my crazy ex yesterday. Long-time readers will recall this nonsense and this nonsense. I also received e-mails from him in December of ’05 and February of ’06, which for some reason I didn’t blog about (that’s not normal, for me). I thought for sure I blogged about the message I got from him in ’06, all about how I’ve “drifted away from my dreams” and giving me financial advice and telling me what I should do with my life.

The crackhead.

Anyway! That was the last time I’d heard from him, until yesterday. I’ve been expecting something from him, since he’s been regular as clockwork since we separated. This time it was simply the subject line, “Still there?” No text, just four pictures attached. I was cautious about opening those pics, letmetellyouwhat. But, they were benign. Weird, but benign.

One picture was of him, head shaved and shirt off (CREEEEEEPY), sitting on a bench snuggled up next to this POOR YOUNG WOMAN who obviously has no idea what she’s getting herself into. She looks to be of Pacific Rim descent and in her late teens or early twenties. A second picture was of just her, smiling into the camera. The third and fourth pictures were of some little old man (her father, maybe?) building some sort of dwelling, in what looks to be a third world country.

Well, here. Can you tell where this is?


Anyway! No idea what is going on in his head. Is he trying to make me jealous of his new ladylove? Envious that he’s Seeing The World and Having Adventures without me?


Seeing those pics, at first I got my hopes up that he’d finally fled the country. But when I looked at the EXIF data on the pics they were shown to have been taken in September of last year, so he could be back in AZ by now. Which also begged the question, WTF? Why send me pics that were over a year old?

Well, why send me pics at all? With no accompanying explanation of Why They’re So Cool?

I swear, he’s getting more insane with every passing year. Some day he’ll show up at my doorstep full of The Crazy. I’m not worried, though. I can totally take him.

Besides, he’s petrified of Calvin. Heh.

    Like an old horror movie director, he was putting the pics there because the backstory you’d create was much better than the BS he could think up.

    Or he’s just lost the mental cohesion it takes to type and is resorting to pictures, like the cash register at McD’s. Either way. 😀

    “Like the cash register at McD’s” – HAA!!!
    I hate that sick/scared/morbidly curious feeling of getting contacted by a crazy ex. Luckily I only have two and one is in jail.
    And don’t think you’re getting away with a Muppet Show reference without being called on it. The fact that I wasn’t the first one to comment on Spaceballs is still bothering me.

  3. Maybe he hadn’t learned how to change the date/time stamp on his camera yet, but wanted to show you his new pictures…

    All I can say is WOW! That “X” is quite a character.

  4. Laura says:

    TB – Oh, heck, he lost his mental cohesion AGES ago.

    Kim – Okay, you get the Spot the Reference prize (even though there was a pic to go with it). I liked Veterinarian’s Hospital, but I liked Pigs in Space more. And, coincidentally, Space Balls was on TV last night. Heh. I gotta get the NON-edited version.

    MTAE – Doubtful! My friend Jen thinks that the girl in the pics dumped him as soon as she got her green card. Heh.

    I have my ex blocked from being able to contact me. I changed all of my IM’s and everything else just so that he couldn’t get in touch wiht me whenever he felt like it. I never got any entertainment out of being contacted by him after I finally got rid of him for good.

  6. Kim says:

    I’m not sure if it makes me look smarter or dumber by admitting I didn’t notice the picture of the Muppets when I made that reference call. Hmmm. Maybe a little of both? I loved that show more than is appropriate. I loved Beaker. I loved Janice, the hippie in the band. Gonzo. All of it. Now I’m singing the song and will be for the rest of the day.

  7. AmyD says:

    Wow. Creepy!

    At least he’s an ex. Both my mom and my MIL are acting like they belong to his club!

  9. K says:

    He e-mailed them BECAUSE he wants you to ask him the “where, when, why and how”… He thinks you’re still interested…
    I understand a bit of “the crazy”..;)

  10. Laura says:

    Heather – I’d have to change my work e-mail, which AcronymCo frowns upon. I’ve blocked his e-mail addresses before but he keeps getting new hotmail and yahoo accounts. Le sigh.

    Kim – It makes you adorabler. “It’s time to play the music, it’s time to light the lights…”

    Amy – Gah, double-mom crazy whammy. PWN3D +3

    TB – Did you know that Animal was inspired by Keith Moon of The Who?

    K – Yeah, I know. It’s morbid curiosity, truly, but I won’t give him the satisfaction of responding to him!!! Did ya ever think he’d turn out to be THIS creepy?

  11. Taoist Biker says:

    I think I’d heard that at some point in the past. I’m hardly surprised.

  12. crisitunity says:

    I also picked up the Pigs in Space reference without the picture, and amused myself all day by hearing the announcer say “continuing storrrrrry of a QUACK” in my head.

    (Sorry for the length.) A while ago I read an internet story – I think it was on Wired – about a journalist who wrote letters to various famous and infamous people, posing as a ten-year-old boy and asking for advice about his future. Some of them wrote back and some of them didn’t, and the roster included serial killers like Charles Manson and Richard Ramirez, people like Oprah and Al Roker, even a Supreme Court justice. Several years later he wrote again, still posing as the boy, only older, and again some wrote back and some didn’t. Manson wrote back with a letter that made utterly no sense at all, writing to the boy as if he were an acquaintance with knowledge of Manson that wasn’t possible (and writing about events that almost certainly never happened), and he included a picture of a barn on a country road.

    This is the first thing I thought of when I read this post. It would be hilarious to me if the pictures (aside from the one of your ex with the girl) had nothing whatsoever to do with him and were just completely random because your ex is A F*CKING NUTCASE.

  13. K says:

    Hmm, yeah a bit..unfortunately..

  14. Laura says:

    Crisitunity – Good heavens! That’s just creepy. Also, darlin’, you KNOW I put the “u” in FUCK. 😀

    K – Gah. Yeah, he was kind of obvious in his psychosis.

  15. […] We used to be tied on this one, but mine wins by virtue of his staying power. […]
