Reasons to not hang out with me

You know how sometimes you get into a certain mood that calls for very specific friends? Maybe you're feeling particularly wacked-out, or need a pick-me-up, or just the kind of laugh that they, and only they can give you? And you know, that if you could just meet up with them, you'd be laughing your ass off in two seconds?

Dammit.

Then the answer comes to you. You know exactly who'd be awake this late, the perfect person to call. Someone fresh, fun and completely hilarious, and living in Montreal. If he doesn't hang out with you right now, you think, he'd better have a damn good excuse. Then, you remember what day it is, and that, as a matter of fact, he does:
