SPAM Email...You win.

Its farking official.

My personal email I've had since 2000 has been infiltrated on a daily basis by Spam. Not the luncheon meat, but the crap mail that has no business being there. And not just a little bit, but enough that when skimming I sometimes don't catch my real emails. The ones that count, anyway.

For example.

BFF: "Did you catch my email about our date tomorrow?"
Me: "Er....no"
Oh, there it is....200 emails into it.

Mother: "I sent you our itinerary for our trip. Why didn't you respond yet?"
Me: "WHAT. You so didn't! Yeah, I WILL check."
Mother waits....
Me: "Damn, you did. Argh Spamemail, I hate you."
Mother smirks and nods her all knowing nod.

Friend: "Hey,sent you pics of the kids"
Me: "Serious? When?"
Friend: "Last week?"
Me banging head on laptop.

You.Win.

I will be finding new digs for my real life peeps to send me emails of future dates, lame jokes, pictures of the fam, vacation details, blah blah blah. You get the jist.

Look the only email I want from a stranger is one saying they are coming to my house to hand me a check that will enable me to never work again. (Am I right? Or am I right?...anyone?...anyone?)

BUT, can I tell you the good kind of email that came my way Monday during my (YAWN) managers meeting??

Heather from The Secret is In The Sauce sent me THE email to ask if Thursday was cool for Thursday to be MY day as the Featured Blogger.


Uh, HELL YA!

So bloggy friends....it's gonna be a special day tomorrow. My blog is putting on a pretty dress (with clean underwear), bake up some cookies (always be a good host, says Martha Stewart) and throw out the welcome mat.

Lil Rambler....just sweep that stuff under the rug. They probably won't go in there. (teehee)

P.S....can you stop by and help a blog friend out and leave a comment. She's going for 25 comments today. Jineen @ I come to the Garden. Thanks. xoxo.

Ann's Rants said...

Congrats! I have the same problem with my email. One of these days I should follow your lead...

Penz said...

CONGRATS!!!! I knew it was bound to happen :) Anyway, I use a spam filter and it takes all potential emails that may be spam, then you check the folder for ones that are ok and it remembers which ones are bad and sends them there. :)

Christina said...

Congrats!

*cue applause*

No worries... we promise not to peek under the rug ;-)

K said...

I hate Spam.

But congrats on your big SITS day tomorrow. I'm so excited for you.

Becky said...

Gmail is a pretty good option to weed out the spam for you so that you don't even see it.

hotpants™ said...

I didn't have any spam to my GMail account until last week. Now it's overrun. The great thing is that GMail puts it all in the spam folder. Only two emails have gotten through. I still hate it. I guess I gave my email out to the wrong person/site.

Fiauna said...

Congrats! I'll have to come back tomorrow and check it out!

Katy said...

Wow girl! Exciting you'll be seen on SITS. I haven't been there in a while, well I haven't been lots of places in a while. Forgive thee.
Sorry about the Spam.

MammaDucky said...

MommyAmy said...

Muppet Soul said...

YESSSS.

I'm ready for tomorrow. READY.

Suggestion: Gmail. I've had it for 2, 3 years and only once or twice has SPAM infiltrated my regular box (it's very good at forcing it into the "SPAM" folder so I don't have to see it).

Wifey said...

Poor e-mail, Happy blog! Congrats on your SITS Day. I'll be back tomorrow...

Winks & Smiles,
Wifey

Funny in my mind said...

Jen said...

How exciting that tomorrow you will be SITS featured blogger!! Understand completely what you mean by the spam email. I had that problem when I had my Yahoo account. As soon as I switched to gmail it's been 100 times better!!

Stopping by from SITS. I know exactly what you mean by spam. I HATE it. Just today I found out how I could enlarge a part of my anatomy that I don't have and I won 1 million British Pounds. :)

Becky @ Farmgirl Paints said...

Hi I saw your site on SITS. It's really cute and boy do you ramble on, but I loved it. I'm hooked:0 Have a wonderful day reading all of your comments. And I'm soooo jealous you live in Hawaii. It should be me:)
