Are any of you being spammed to death? In the approximately 22 hours between my last post before coming home (11:00 PM Tuesday) and when I posted that I was home safe (9:00 PM Wednesday), I had 144 spam hits! I'm black and blue from so many hits! Talk about being beat up!!! I'm guessing that it is somehow related to having the blog, because my other email addy which I use for personal correspondence, gets just one or two a day, sometimes not even that.
Fortunately Yahoo's spam filter seems to work well, as only one or two a week slip through. But I have to check the spam (all 144 of them!!!) to be sure something I was to receive didn't get thrown in there. Occasionally something from one of you gets tossed in there, so I do scan them and save what I do want. Ridiculous!
In the 37 spam message I got overnight last night, I find I can cleanse my colon (actually it appears that I need to cleanse my colon about 10 times today)while having a smoke and waiting for the Cialis/Viagra to work on my partner. Then I can fix my credit with debt relief, get a new line of credit and then go away for a Mexican Getaway, taking my Dell computer AND my Macbook Air along with me to stay in touch with you. When I return, I can use airline promos to fly off and take a cruise before coming home and starting an online business while working on my IT degree or opting to get a different kind of degree, using my non-repayable grants to fund it. By this time, I will be bored so I'll try out and keep a Nintendo Wii, become an online educator selling hotel promotions, and buying my insurance through BCBS. I'll need it because apparently I will develop diabetes and Liberty will supply me with what I need to treat this. NUTZ!!!
While I was in Wichita I got some text messages. I don't text. Just haven't found a reason to, for the most part. I have sent perhaps 5-6 text messages in my life. I know it is a mainstay for many, but not me. So the first message said....
"Im single now and living alone srry i havent talked to u n a while"
I ignored this, thinking whoever would realize that they had the wrong #. Then a few minutes later I got...
"U mad at me?"
Connie and I laughed, and I texted (is that a new buzz word?) back, "wrong #". then in another few minutes I got....
"wil u talk to me?"
I texted back, "NO. U hv wrng #"
Then I got....
"is this lindasy"
At this point I got irritated. Since I don't have text messaging in my cellphone plan, every message is costing me!! Connie had unlimited texting, so she sent a message from her phone saying, "pls dont send text msg to XXX.XXX.XXXX. that is my moms phone. it costs her for every message."
About 5 minutes later, my phone rang. You guessed it!! A call from the same #!! I answered, and A man's voice which sounded like he was about 25-30 said (are you ready for this???) ...
"Is this Lindsay?"
Un-freakin'-believable!!! I said, "No, did you not get messages saying that this number was not who you wanted?" He said, "No." HUH??? I said, "Well, I sent you two saying it was the wrong number and my daughter sent one saying not to text this number again." He apologized and hung up.
Do you think I should call him back and say that if he doesn't mind a mildly wrinkled, slightly overweight, almost 64 year old, WE'RE ON!?!?!?! LOL!!!! Maybe he was so horney, now that he is single again, that he won't care!! I'll bet he wouldn't call or text again, for sure!!!! :D Oh, my.
