What’s really sad is that this isn’t a joke at all and that my mom actually was subjected to all of these emails

A series of inappropriate emails I sent to my mother which she has not responded to at all.

(This is all totally true, by the way.  That’s what makes it so very awful.  FYI: Lisa is my sister.  Gabi is my niece.  My mother is a saint.)

Weird. I can’t even get my cat to wear a condom.

Crap! I meant “sweater“.  I can’t even get my cat to wear a SWEATER. Why did I say “condom”? What is wrong with me?

Pretend Lisa sent this.

Also, I just remembered that you said your computer won’t play videos so this whole thing is pointless.  Just trust me that the video was adorable and didn’t have anything to do with cat sex at all.

Hi mom!

You’re going to see a bunch of emails from me in your inbox but you shouldn’t read them because they’re all infected with a terrible virus.  Which I got from Lisa.  You should really just avoid her and also any emails from her.  She’s not with you right now, is she?  Because if she is you should push her down.

~me

PS.  I found Gabi’s jacket in my car but now I’ve lost it again.  I need Lisa’s address in case I find it again.  Oh hang on, I’ll just CC Lisa on this so she can tell me.  Duh.

Oh.  I have made a horrible mistake.

You both should not open the emails from me in your inbox.  They are infected with a virus.  Which I got from daddy.

I love you both very, very much.

~me

PS. Lisa ~ What’s your address?  I may or may not have something to send to you but if you don’t get anything it’s your mailman’s fault and totally not mine.  You have a terrible mailman.

*******************************************************************************

So far?  No response.  Except for my sister who simply responded “You are an idiot“.  Hard to argue with that.

Comment of the day: I just sent my mom a picture of a house in Ohio where we spent 2,475 days growing up. She wrote me back and said, “Oh look, it’s that house in the Hamptons we spent the afternoon at.” ~ Suzy

  12. I have the oppostie problem. My dad has just become proficient at emailing in the last couple of years and for some reason old people (or maybe it’s just his friends..) really, really, really, REALLY like to send horrible forwards that no one wants to read. However, he seems to think that I will be interested in reading them. I’m not, but that doesn’t change the fact that I’ll open my inbox to find 32 messages from him, 2 from an old friend telling me about MaryKay deals even though her and I haven’t talked in years, and 1 telling me how to enhance the size of the penis I don’t have.

  13. At least your mother doesn’t fill your inbox w/political or religious crapola that not only offends you but you’re pretty sure she didn’t even read past the subject line.

  17. That is brilliant! Why haven’t I thought of the whole “virus” and/or sent by someone “else” thing when I send a screwed up email?

  26. I would love to receive email from my Mother. Unfortunately she’s too “challenged” to get my email correct. In the past, she has gotten gmail and blogspot confused, therefore sending all email to my gspot account that I don’t have.

    Yes, that is a true story.

  27. I was going to make some joke about the emails starting with a condom and ending with getting a virus from your father, but then I realized that I just couldn’t make incest and questionable sexual abuse funny. Well, I could, but I would be ashamed of myself. Well, not necessarily ashamed of the joke, because the ones I thought of were pretty funny, and I would only be ashamed of them if they weren’t funny, but slightly embarrassed, way later on, when I realized that it was probably inappropriate and nobody else thought that they were funny. Mostly not the inappropriate part, though. And now I am not funny in paragraph form. FML.

    What? I didn’t say anything. That was her. I was too busy trying to figure out how I could be Neil Gaiman and Amanda Palmer’s wife. Apparently, a position is open. Yum.

    Oh, and I loved that video! Seriously awesome cat. All yours does is sit on your head. You should totally wrap your cat in Easter bunny paper (Christmas has already been done) and then let it sit on your head. That way you can top that video. Your intern should totally get on this. You’re welcome.

  30. That cat looks exactly like my cat, who had to be given to my Ex’s mom when she went psychotic ninja on my kid when she was like, just learning to walk and tried to sever her achilles tendons. And her son, my ex’s brother is just weird enough that he might wrap up a cat in wrapping paper. And youtube it. Except instead of traditional Christmas music, he would have had some traditional Chinese music because in addition to just being a cat-wrapper-upper sort, he’s also become Chinese since 2001. And he was here at Christmas time, from China, so it totally could have been him.

    Which is what I hope my ex and his mom’ll understand when they hear the voicemail I left them, accusing their family member of being a dirty cat-wrapper.

  46. You know that strange filter that you have if you’re a teacher and you know you can’t curse in front of your students even though you swear like a sailor? Oh wait- you’re probably not a teacher. Anyway, THANK GOD I have one of those filters. So far in 15 years of teaching I haven’t sweared in front of my students. Except that one time when one of my first graders dropped a heavy chair square on my big toenail. I said “SHIT” out loud and then ran/ hobbled out into the hallway to cry and vomit. And then two days later I lost my toenail.

    Well somehow that filter has carried over to sending fucked up stuff to my mom on the internet. Again, THANK GOD. Because I really really want to.

  63. I am in love w @Mayopie’s comment. I would propose if it weren’t patently obvious she is experienced sexually, which makes the comment dirty and whorish. SO JUST FORGET IT.

  64. Also, next time use a lubed condom. Makes the cats slimy, but it makes it easier to slide on.

    And do you think wrapping paper, a sweater, and a condom (especialy all three) would help to make the cat-towel facelift thing more suitable and practical for public? Because I do. A sweater for warmth, a condom for its spanx-like properties (it would flatten the cat out, you see, so he blended better), and the wrapping paper with the bow could make it look like a normal hair accessory. In fact, if the cat didn’t meow, I don’t think anybody would be able to tell. I am not sure how you would get it to stay on. Bungee cords? Ribbon? You cold make him look either like a bonnet or like one of those amazing winter hat things with the strings that tie under your chin, that you aren’t really supposed to tie, but you do, and the huge poof ball on top. Depending on the season. Or not, I guess. You could wear the bonet version year round, I suppose. But you might have to dress like you are Amish.

  65. If this was sent to my mom, she’d ask if I was alright and maybe if I should start taking some medication. Then when it got to the point where the sister gets blamed. She would agree, then tell everyone my sister sent her some rambling emails and needs an intervention. My mom’s cool like that. Thanks for the laugh on a day that I needed one. You rock!

    Oh. My. God.

    I was trying to be oh-so-humorous, but I just grossed myself out so much I almost threw up!
    .-= Dudge OH´s last blog ..They’ll Be Dancing In The Streets of Heaven Tonight… =-.

  92. Your mom was giving that cat to my dog for Christmas. And you blew it. THAT’S why she’s not talking to you.
    .-= Julie´s last blog ..If Charles in Charge was a Girl. And a Dictator. Resolution #7 =-.

  93. Remember when I wanted to interview your mom & dad while I was in Texas? And you said no, you wanted to save and exploit them for your own purposes? I can totally see why. They’re funny even on the side.

  94. Oh this reminds me of that scene in Swingers where the call call the woman for the first time and has a converstaion that ultimately leads to him breaking up with her. Except he hasn’t gone out with her yet and the conversation is all by himself on her answering machine.

    One’s own mind can be a dangerous neighborhood.

  95. Ahahaha. Hahahaha. YES! I am glad I am not the only one that does this kind of stuff.

    Just be thankful your mom does not have a Facebook account. Mine does, and I made the mistake of posting that she looked like an up-right corpse in one of her pictures. The entire Facebook world collapsed on me soon after.

    Except replace entire Facebook world with all of my mother’s friends and you have a better approximation of what actually happened.

  96. I laughed SO hard I cried. My dogs enjoyed as well. My mom would probably never speak to me again. She’s not this much fun. Thank you for making me laugh like this every day!

  97. As I’m reading this, I’m on the phone with my dad, walking him through how to attach a file to his email.

    Again.

    He’ll never send me a kitty condom video.

    Although, he did used to ask why anyone would want to look at “kitty porn”.

  98. I find it odd that people are still wrapping cats to begin with…don’t most people use gift bags now? You know, “Don’t let the cat out of the bag!”… until Christmas. Isn’t that where that saying came from anyway?

  99. I just can’t wait for the next family get together – I DO hope you’ll write about it!

  100. Surely she’s used to this sort of thing by now. “Oh look, more insane emails from Jenny. And there’s a sale at Macy’s!”

  101. Your cat won’t wear a condom? Really? Hmmm. It’s not that hard… Er– difficult. ;)

  102. I love you, your mom, your sister, and Gabi.

    p.s. Your cat is an irresponsible jerk!
    .-= submom´s last blog ..We are all in this =-.

  103. You very explicitly told your sister not to open those e-mails. *Now* who’s the idiot?
    Between this and the whole possibly-Diet Dr. Pepper incident, it’s obvious you two are related.

  104. My mother has just aboot mastered email.

    However, thanx to my brother and nephew being forward-everything-and-the-kitchen-sink email-tards, she rarely uses it.

    I also made the mistake of telling her where my blog wuz.

    However, I didn’t mention that I didn’t use my real name on it, so I’m hoping she got confuzzled and fergot aboot it…

  105. Gmail has a function you can add that cracks me up. You know how we sometimes get drunk and send e-amils we shouldn’t have- not that Jenny was drunk when she sent these, I’m guessing it was more fun sober- BUT you can add a “drunk guard” to your e-mail account that makes you solve simple math problems before the program will let you send. How awesome is that?

  108. hahahahahahaha thats amazing

  109. I end up doing stuff like this all the time too.
    Only I have no siblings, so I have to blame it on one of my Mom’s dogs.
    It works better than you would think.

  110. Don’t kill the messenger but your mother doesn’t reply because your emails go directly in her junk mail.
    Your sister may be partly responsible.

  111. Oh, and another thing. I’ve been reading this blog since the last decade and this is the first that I’m hearing about a sister. I’m afraid that I’m going to need to see her birth certificate. And perhaps a few tax returns. Just the federal, I’m not some kind of a freak.

  114. My mom would just respond to me by saying, “I don’t remember raising you—a psycho of a daughter :)” No joke. That’s her being kind. And yes, she’s even cool enough these days to do the smiley face.

  115. Laughing as always. If I had a cat I’d totally do shit like that to them. And a sister too.

  116. So. hard. to. laugh. silently. at. desk.

    Aaaah! This is too funny!!

  117. you’re lucky.
    if I had sent all these weird mails,
    my mother would have sent over my sister to make sure
    I haven’t hit my head on the nightstand again or something.

  118. Laughed so hard I cried!

  119. I was really hoping you were going to tell us that your sister and niece were the ones wrapping the cat. I wanted to know how many times they had to rehearse that because it seems like it was down to a science. I don’t even wrap things that aren’t alive that precisely. (Uh, like, inanimate objects… I’m not saying I wrap dead things….)

  120. [...] is a damn riot. … other posts by [...]

    Lady Penelope

    That’s gold!

    My Mum takes weeks to respond to anything I send her but when she finally does, she hits ‘send’ so many goddamn times it blocks my email.

    You win this round, Mum.
