Between The Lines

Between doing odds and ends here in the office, my motivation to be here today also led me to look through the Google Mail folder where they put the filterd spam. Mind you, I think G-mail does a pretty good job of filtering spam. I'm not sure why they save it for me (and you if you use G-mail). Well, OK, I do know, it's in case something gets filtered that's from someone Real, eh?

At any rate, I enjoy doing this periodically. G-mail shows the subject line in bold, and a bit of the message (first line). Now, I filter on those make mine bigger things too. I'm quite happy with the size of mine, and it's probably more than you needed to know that I've... well if it's more than you needed to know why am I writing it? Anyway. Amusement. I haz it, YMMV.

With subject and first line of e-mail, (comments in parentheses)

Does it matter? Your document is attached (Thank you. I wondered where I put that document.)

She will meet you all days with all her love. Your shy will be vanished along with overweight. (Why did I initially read that as my shy will be varnished? Why would I be varnishing my shy?)

And from Tamera Faulk, whoever this is:
Fwd: hi Drama is life with the dull bits cut out" Sir Alfred Joseph Hitchcock (Which is actually a quote by Alfred Hitchcock, and he is one of my favourite cinema directors.)

Someone sent you an Ecard Your flatmate has issued you a greeting at WorldPostcardArt dot com (Which, while World Postcard Art does turn up a lot of hits when put into Google as a search, none of the hits direct one to WorldPostcardArt dot com ... imagine that.)

And just in case that one didn't work, a variation on the theme wants me to open up at YourLettercard dot com. Riiiiiight. Don't think I'll go there. If I disappoint my flatmate, well, that's unfortunate.

We now return you to your otherwise fruitful day.
