Paris and Nicole Aren't That Interesting

I have no idea why, but I've been getting a TON of spam with Paris Hilton and Nicole Ritchie in the subject line. Somebody, actually lots of spammers, think I won't be able to resist opening their spam with those two as the subject. I can't think of a single reason why, or what they might be trying to sell me. But frankly, Paris and Nicole just don't do it for me.

Granted, some spammers are a little more enticing, with "Registration Confirmation", especially the one with the email address: Admin @ cia . gov. Okay, I could see how someone might fall for that one, or even just let their curiosity take over. But I didn't.

I remain adamant; I will not open anything I do not recognize. So if you change your email, don't send me a message that says: i ve chnged mi emal. That won't work. (Yup, I've gotten at least twenty of those in the last two days, as well).

It's good to know the bulk mail folder at Yahoo is working well for me. I still have to check, just in case an important newsletter falls through the cracks. But for the most part, I am a very satisfied customer.

Albeit one who has not taken advantage of the Best Prices on Prescription Drugs lately.

I'm glad I'm not the only one getting those emails. Wish we could turn the tables on those spammers (LOL). Thanks for visiting my blog :)!

Ahhhh. I don't open that kind of stuff either. I feel like I'm showing my age either way. Too old to be interested in Paris and Nicole, and too young to care about the great drug deals. Alert enough not to get sucked into spam. Even when I'm not eating chocolate!

I don't understand why people in Africa think I want to dole out my bank account number for an amazing opportunity where I can get rich.
