Yes, it’s a (Good) Friday for those who are celebrating such events. Me? I’m happy to have a day off work and anticipate eating ham and potato salad on Sunday at Dani & Jon’s. 12 years of Catholic school and it comes down to that. I’m not a big follower of organized religion – preferring instead to honor and accept the mysteries of the Universe (really my name for God and all that entails) as I understand it. No heathen am I. Just not a church going chick, is all.
Duty has a cold and has had to turn down tix to the Flyers/Devs playoff game in Philly offered by his bro. He doesn’t seem overly bummed about it … I am, though. He was so excited about going (well, for him, anyway) . Duty is so “mox-nix” about stuff. Doesn’t get way up or way down. I guess that’s why we (more or less) get along as I am emotion personified. And wouldn’t have it ANY other way (my emotional self, that is). Duty being so even keeled, I might like to change up a bit. You know, just for kicks.
This was in my JD10 in box and seriously, who falls for this shit?
Dear_ CITI_bank _User_,
_This letter was sent by the citibank_ sevrer to veerify your_ EMAIL adderss_.
You must complete this process by clicking on_the link beloow and enteering
in the little winndow your citi_bank _Debit Card Nummber and card pin that
you_use on_the Atm_Machine. That is donne for_your protection -Y- because some_of our members no longer_ have access to their email_ addreses and we must verify it.
To verify your Email _address_ and acccess your_ _citibank
account, click on the link _below_.
Now, let’s take a look at this, shall we?
1. How many times have you seen/heard/read to NEVER, EVER under ANY circumstances, give away your PIN number online (or on the phone or at a street corner)? So what in this email would make one choose to ignore that advice? The broken english? The excessive underscores? WHAT? Jeez.
2. And speaking of which, why is it they cannot even use a translator site to make it look reasonably intelligible? I’m generally not in the habit of telling people better ways to defraud others but dudes, take a look at that issue. Something that makes a modicum of sense might help you achieve your (illegal) goal easier.
3. It’s called Spell Check. Look into it.
Okay, on to other things:
(Read this sentence with a goofy spanish accent) The scale, she is going in the wrong direction and I MUST get a handle on that. I cannot continue to snarf without consequence and it being summer and all, that can’t happen. Hence, taking my ass either to the gym or out walking momentarily. Twice I’ve gone out the door and have gotten in the car to go to the gym and freakishly ended up at Starbucks instead! That evil Taurus. That’s why I need a new car. So it can drive me where I want to go instead of making up its own mind to take me to Starbucks. Heh.
Am I turning political in my old age? I have a feeling I am. Sorry to all my Repug friends but Bush has got to go. GOT TO GO. Not that all politicians don’t have agendas, but his is (IMO) terribly detrimental to all this country stands for. The FCC debacle, 9-11 and all that’s being uncovered about his disregard for that, the mess in Iraq and on and on and on. FEH. It’s enough to make me register to vote for only the second time in my adult life. I am not happy about the way things are going in this country. I don’t think I am big time liberal (I have no problem with idiots in Iraq blowing themselves up, for instance) but I know I am not a Right Winger by ANY stretch of the imagination.
Anyone listening to Air America Radio? I’m at work when the Al Franken show is on so I can’t really listen to it as I would like but it sounds interesting and finally there’s something out there to combat the fuckwits like Rush and O’Reilly (shills, both of them).
Okay, I better stop here – I’m getting all wound around a pole.
And what happened to Friday Five, anyway? It’s been blown off for many weeks now. That’s a bummer.
Peace out, yo!
