Spam Me

I get the weirdest spam in my gmail account. It's only a couple here and there, but not the typical Viagra or newsletter type spam that we are all well accustomed to deleting without a second thought.

No, the spam I get goes a little something like this:

Everett Byrd
Dare to be gorgeous and unique. But don't ever be cryptic or otherwise unfathomable. Make it unforgettably great.
Andrew S. Tanenbaum, Computer Networks (2003) A customer beams with joy, and the canyon living with a briar patch leaves; however, a soggy chestnut seeks an earring about the cab driver.


Domingo Cain
It doesnt matter, Paul, he told himself again and again in those last few days before the Royal coughed up first its t and then its e, the damned thing is almost done. And she heard it - low, painful scraping sounds in the earth - not the sounds of a burrowing animal, these; these were the sounds of fingers scraping helplessly on wood.

It's a sad day indeed when I miss the comfortable usuality of sensical Viagra spam!


In other news: the boyfriend and I broke up yesterday. It's sucky and I'm a little sad, but it is for the best. We had been coasting along for a while without things really going anywhere, so it was time to move on. I deserve better, and I'm looking forward to dating again. I have missed that butterfly excitement of those first few dates - it's such an enjoyably awkward feeling that I always miss when things start to get comfortable.

So with a new year is a new break with new opportunities. I'm glad I can honestly say that I'm looking forward to it!

Happy New Year Jo!!

Well, it sounds like my New Year's Eve wasn't nearly as exciting as yours. Mine was rather disappointing, actually. I went to see Blue Rodeo with my mom (which I thought was going to be kick-ass), but as it turns out it was more like one big jam session with Blue Rodeo and friends, such as Matt Mays from El Torpeo whom I'm not so much a fan of... As a result, we ended up leaving around 11:40 and watched the clock turn 12 while driving down a back road to Dundas. How very festive.
In other exciting news, I too seem to be the recipient of some rather odd spam. Excepts from mine include:

did sometimes make one happier than winning it. up went her best hat,there was only one way left to destroy dorothy and her friends. and his grandson.
the sun till it dried. me, and i'm all alone." "and there is no hope?"
came round the house.


I'm also sorry to hear about you and the dude. Sounds like a very similar situation to my former guy and me. But on the upside, you are completely correct about the whole dating situation! I'm currently "dating around" (it's true what they say, when it rains it pours) and it's proving to be quite fun!
Hope all is well with you. Let me know when you'll be home so I can drop you a line, I get all the free North American long distance I can handle! And things are looking quite positive on our summer Harry Potter expedition!!! Can't wait!
Miss you lots,

Cassy, thanks for stopping by. I can't wait to see you for Harry Potter - though you're of course welcome to come to up to Montreal much sooner if you decide to :D
Glad to hear you're doing well and having fun, I am definitely in the same mindset right now! I'm actually doing a speeddating thing next week, so I'll be making a post about it afterwards. heh.

And cutecute_pretty, I will gladly spam you till the cows come home. And then it's their turn.

I like your story.
But you'd better take a look here to find a really DIFFERENT dating site.
Looks amazing, agree? :-)
