How to Send Tangible Mail to Rex Parker

Saturday, April 19, 2008

This site now has its own official mailing address. Exciting, I know:

Rex Parker
4700 Vestal Parkway East, #279
Vestal, NY 13850-3770

I can't tell you how much I love my mailbox number -> 279. First two digits = last digit. Plus it's 3 cubed and 3 squared squished together. Also 9 (my favorite of all numbers) x 31 (mmm, prime). An on and on.

and your zipcode!
1 + 3 = 4 (doubled) = 8 - 5 = (3 + 0) x 3 = 9 + (7 - 7 = 0)...9!!!!!!!!!!

(Don't even get me started on the whole vestal virgin thing)

NMI is "No Middle Initial". It's most common in the military.

Since you have also expressed an emotional reaction to words (e.g., "carom"), I hadn't expected that you would match my emotional reaction to numbers. Nice to see that!

Wow. Not much commentage. Theodore Roethke is also, I like to think, a Pacific Northwest reference. He is a patron saint of the Blue Moon tavern in Seattle (a stone's throw from my former residence) - Well. Had never seen that terrific geranium poem. Thanks!

Best phone number I ever had: 323-9646. It can't be improved upon. I think the Egyptians would have worshipped it if they'd had phones. I had it only for a year (96-97), and its beauty is only enhanced by the ungainliness of the Austin area code (512), as it rises out of and above that ugliness into the perfection of the cubes and the mirror-effect of the doubled prefix in the last three numbers. God, I hated losing that phone number. I think I'll call it tomorrow and see what lucky bastard got it. I bet his life turned out a lot better than mine did.

No comment on "ODED"? I thought that was totally bogus. Isn't "OD'd" more like it? Where does the extra "E" come from???

@wade, totally dig the love for the phone #. My old # in SD, man, I'll never forget it!

Hey Rex. First time, long time! Nice numerology site - you possess many skills. Speaking of numbers, I'd like to address the number of minutes I wasted on a crappy clue on Sunday's puzzle. Since when are "cross country RACES" stars? "Cross country RACERS" are stars, in theory (although I'd prefer curling or watching grass grow, myself, but I digress). Anyway, I messed the whole top right with that one letter wrong. A race is a sport and a sport is not a star - a person is. Who goes to the Olympics with a sign that reads "Pole Vaulting is my Hero!" or "The Hop Skip and Jump is #1!"? Nobody! A star is a person, a celestial body, a restaurant rating or a shuriken - not a sport. Please, write a nasty letter to someone on I my behalf. Thank you. Your Fan. Mark
