Please Join Me On Gmail! We'll Have Champagne and Dance

I love Gmail. I love that it's free and that email.

But every time I email someone who doesn't have Gmail, I get this little notice "Invite this person to Gmail." Seriously, what kind of a loser do I look like that I now have to invite people to Gmail? And what would this invitation look like?

Can't I just send and receive email on Gmail without being guilt-tripped by Gmail every single time I communicate with a non-Gmailer?!

No. Secretly, Gmail is just a cover for a secret organization conspiring to take over the world. Once they have enough members, they will send mesmerizing messages through email all over the world, and we will become their mindless followers.

Get with the program.

I remember when it first came out and only a couple people I knew were invited to join. At that time, each member could only invite 5 people, so everyone in my college was begging the select few to invite them like it was some effing popularity contest or something. I was jealous but had too much pride to ask them to invite me. Lame, I know.

And now I have two gmail accounts, so I'll get extra champagne and dancing.

I've got that invite. It was non-descript. I asked the sender: Why the hell did you send me an invite to gmail? Then I joined gmail.
