In case you weren't aware, GB is on Twitter.

I use Twitter and now that I know GB is on Twitter, I'm following you.

no, because I don't text (and delete texts sent to me unread) and usually leave my phone sitting on the coffee table anyway.

When I finally stop procrastinating and make that get-arrested-in-Egypt trip I've been planning, I may reconsider.

Hellzz to the Bellzz no! I also don't text either, its just lame.

Greg, mos def go to Egypt! its a life changing experience. I have no idea why you would get arrested unless act like a Cubs fan. In that case go to Cancun instead, cause you will hate Egypt
