We all get these crazy spam emails that say we have won or inherited money but sometimes I get one that I really think is odd. For example, I received an email with the following salutation:
DEAR ONEHuh? One of what? Or am I so very, very dear? Or is my name One? Perhaps I'm actually just a cloned version of myself labeled One of 50? If that's so, I'm going to bed and the other 49 "me's" can get to work!
And then there's the Engrish:
I inherited some money ($8.400 Million usdollars ) from my late Husband which I do not want the fund to go in vain since I can not survive from the illness.What's with the "zero" fetish and "usdollars"? Give me a freakin' break. The entire sentence structure leaves something to be desired.
OK. OK. I'll put down my red correction pen.
In a minute. There's more:
I want you to contact my house girl, Miss Sarah Appiah, her Email is (guilty_person@yahoo... ) Please contact Miss Sarah with any valid driving license or id card, your photo and your telephone numbers to assure her that you shall never cheat or betray her when you have access to this funds.It's unbelievable that people fall for these things.
This is followed by some more BS and ends with this:
I thank you holy GodHuh? Are you talking to me?
Enough of that. In other news, tomorrow is the Cowtown race in Fort Worth. After a beautiful warm week of over 80 degree temperatures, two cold fronts are slamming us (thanks to you Northern folks for sending them down to us) and it's supposed to be very windy during the race and about 40 degrees. I know that this probably sounds warm to some of you but for me, it sounds ICK!
While you are tucked in your warm beds tomorrow morning, please send me some positive thoughts as I'm attempting to pound the pavement, assuming I actually make it out of bed at O'Dark-Thirty and get my sorry buttinksy to the starting line.
Now what. Has something twisted and unnatural happened to ReformingGeek?
I think those are her pants and shoes but her feet are pointed funny and her torso and head appear to be missing.
She also appears to have been flattened.
What do you think happened here?
Um...well, we know ReformingGeek gets a bit silly after drinkies and she gets pre-race jitters, so who knows?
Have a good weekend!
