spamalot

I just received two emails, which I deleted before opening:

1. From the numerology guy (I had to enter my email address to get a little information), titled, "Jenny, Understand the Duality of Two".

2. From PetRX (since we all know how much I love pets), titled, "Just in time for Valentine's Day!"

My favorite is when they come from randomly-named word generator senders like Richard Toasteroven or Tiffany Gerbil. Because I might think "Hmmm Could that be Tiffany Gerbil from my semester in the dorms? I will see what interesting things she has to tell me about girth and female satisfaction."

Did you have to give them your real email address? For stuff like that, register for a new email account at Yahoo.com or Hotmail.com and then never use it again. :)

My favorite thing about gmail are the "targeted" advertisements at the top of your email box. Every time you check the spam folder, it has some random recipe for spam. Been hunting for Spam Ginger Salad for one? French Fry Spam Casserole (bake 30-40 mins)? Spam FAJITAS?!

La Yen,
You are too funny.

I keep getting this e-mail in my spam account:
Hi Cjane! I saw your picture online and you are very hot! I need a man like you around! Check out my MySpace account.

So as a man, I am hot. That is good news. Somehow.

My latest correspondences have been from my good friends zdkehiwe, lantha Tengan and Doable T. Carrie. (I don't even want to know what dear old "Doable" is trying to sell.) Oh, and I recently won a total of five X Boxes during one single shift at work. I am a lucky girl.

jen - I get emails like that containing the phrase "smash the ladies like crazy". ri-i-i-ght.

jc - I'll do that. For now, I usually just unsubscribe in that instance. I like your idea better.

carina - my favorite part of spam ginger salad is that it's for one.

cj - how is it that your sister grows up as a young boy but you end up the man? (just kidding, nie)

compulsive - i've won xboxes, too! from zerocoolgamers. yes, zerocool.

I am also a "VeryHot" man according to some recent spam. They've "seen my picture on the web" and "wannahook up." I guess I should be flattered, but it's kind of discouraging that someone has seen my picture and mistaken me for a man.

I guess I, too, must be way hot but at the same time impotent because I get a wide variety of solicitations. It's good to know there are so many services available to people like me.
