The text of an e-mail I just received


"You, John Hodgman (assuming this is you I'm writing to) have a fanclub. Based on the popular "website" LiveJournal, it consists of 20 or so fans who discuss all matters Hodgman. It could be found (again, assuming that you are John Hodgman and you are currently connected to the Internet) at


"Yours digitally,
Lucas J. Wagner, Esq."

For the five of you who make take interest in such things, I provide this information.

That is all.

Is that the same Lucas from the movie?

Did you know that Chet from Weird Science is in a new show about people who don't swear or drink caffeine?

Be thankful it wasn't from a gaggle of fans who are so devoted to you that they would gladly trust you to help them smuggle millions of dollars out of Nigeria. The fortune of the late Prince Noobalimosbo doesn't live up to all the hype, I'm sorry to say.

Curse you StalkerFans@yahoo!

Mr. Hodgman,

Just wanted you to know I have recently discovered you through the wonders of Comedy Central, in the magical form of The Daily Show, something to wash down my dinner each evening. I hope you make more apperances on there, as you are always funny, witty,and more likable then many of the other anchors.

Also lovin' the Mac commercials, though your character makes me a little sad. Maybe he can be reincarnated into some attractive woman's laptop, while the smarmy Mac can be sold for scraps on eBay? Or the Japanese black market?

Just a suggestion.

Anywho, keep making us laugh. You're needed. And you make me feel like it's still possible to make a living as a writer, which is my life's goal.

Yes my goal is to be creative and perpetually dead broke. Apparently I'm already achieving my dream! Except without a publishing contract.

Ok, shutting up now ;)


Lippy said...

Oh yes, and I incorrectly spelled your name on my blog. Go me and my late-night writing skills that are fermenting rather then blossoming.

Sorry about that. Biggest apologies. Well big for a 5'1 gal.

I digress.

Gonna go now...

If you'll recall, I started your first online fanclub a year ago and you showed utter disdain for it. Saying, "I can hardly endorse a fanclub that has been put together by a total stranger in Utah". Or something to that effect.
And if you'll also recall, t'was I wot put the term 'Hodgmania' all over the interwebs. And what prey tell did fair Angelina get in return for this? One autographed copy of your book and this stupid t-shirt. I'm not bitter. I can't stay mad at you.
