Ouch. I was looking at Web Pages that Suck - so I guess I shouldn't expect to come away from that unscathed - but this site did actually physically give me a headache. Look if you dare. Even if you don't look, the text is even better than the pictures:

It’s age of shift as underlined by ongoing cosmic balancing adjustment. It’s manifested explicitly in Eco-change, Geo-change and Time-change on our mother nature.
        
This cosmic cyclic force could be the source of causing mankind eternal global trotter to survive by traveling to the new domains.
        
From primordial time traveling is a great holistic self-adjustment act to spiritual, emotional and physical new experiences of mankind as well.
        
It’s time to shift as aided by traveling with today’s media to the new height of culture of life.

Wha??  I've gotten spam that made more sense than that. And what the heck does that have to do with airport parking, anyway?


(Oh, speaking of spam, all my good spam lately has been Paris Hilton jokes. "Paris Hilton Finds God; God Runs Away" and other such gems.)

(I posted this on TUS earlier without the line breaks, but after I stuck in semi-random line breaks I like it even better, so I'm sharing.)

From the "Union Bank of Nigeria":

ARE YOU DEAD OR ALIVE?



(I couldn't resist checking to see what it said.

SO HERE COMES THE BIG QUESTION:

(1) DID YOU ASSIGN/INSTRUCT (MRS CYNTHIA EDWARD) TO CLAIM YOUR FUNDS?
(2)ARE YOU DEAD OR ALIVE?

Apparently, if you're alive you are entitled to claim $7.7 million, just give them your bank routing number, etc. The usual. If you're dead, you're presumably not reading your e-mail.)

Some people must really be total idiots. (I'm not entirely sure if I mean the spamee or the spammer, here.) Note that URL - Phoenix High School, maybe? And you can't see the return address, which is that all-time classic no-reply@yahoo. What I really want to know is how the heck this got through Gmail's spam filter, which is usually smart enough to catch stupid baloney like this.

Oh really

Huh. Some of the spammers that love me so much seem to have gotten a new technique. The sender's name has a name and then "News Service" and the subject is a real news headline from the past couple of days - "Senator's condition upgraded" was one - but after that it goes off into trying to sell stock. It did at least catch my attention, which puts it ahead of most spam, I guess.

The real Father of Lies?

I'm off this afternoon. I'm going to get my hair colored after lunch.[info]columbina always asks me if it's going to be pink, or chartreuse, but no, it should be the same color it has been - a relatively sedate violet-tinged red-brown. My natural color is a very neutral dark brown, but since I've been coloring it I keep leaning more towards plummy-red tones.

Ooh, I have 101 icons, and room for more! I just got up to 100 for the first time last week, so the extra ones are very timely. And I renewed my paid account this morning, whereupon I got two more! (You get one for every 3 months, right? So I guess that's the two for the extra six months I just paid for.) I am very attached to my icons, for some reason. I was having a terribly hard time deciding what to delete. There were a few obvious candidates (like the seasonal ones, which I can just upload again next year, after all) but after that I was sort of stymied. I also changed my style while I was at it, which most of you will not notice.

(Is the presence of a baseball-player silhouette enough of a clue for non-baseball people to figure out what the Kissimmee icon is about? It's not that I am promoting Florida in general, it's just a spring training thing. Kissimmee is where the Astros are right now.)

I just got spam allegedly from the IRS, saying I had gotten a tax refund, and just click on this link to re-submit so that I can get my money. Are there really people stupid enough to fall for this? There probably are, and that's pretty sad.

I left my flash drive at home, and I may have to go home at lunch and get it, partly just because it's worrying me. That thing's so tiny I always worry that I will lose it. (I have a habit of popping it off of the keychain when I'm using it so the keys won't be in the way, and I should probably stop doing that.) Also I was going to download the new (that is, new-new, as opposed to the new version from a couple of weeks ago) version of Dofus which came out yesterday, because I was unsuccessful at getting it to download at home last night. It would get to about 15% and stop, every time.

It's spring break here, which means horrid traffic. The weather hasn't really been all that great, so you would think people would give up and go home, but noooo. Stupid teenagers. (Disclaimer: any teenagers reading this, of course I don't mean you. After all, if you were in Galveston clogging up traffic, you probably wouldn't be reading this!) The weather keeps changing, which means I have been sickly all week, in a minor way. But I would rather be sickly and have the cooler weather. It's too early for it to get hot.
