lately i've been getting more and more spam sneaking its way into my INBOX. yahoo isn't doing nearly as good a job as it used to of filtering them out. i do have a gmail account, but i like to use both. here's one of the most recent letters:
From: Mrs. Helena Williams.
22 Oxford Court,
Here writes Mrs. Helena Williams, suffering from cancerous ailment. I am
married to Mr. Thomas Williams an Englishman who is dead. My husband was
into private practice all his life before his death. Our life together as
man and wife lasted for three decades without child. My husband died after
a protracted illness. My husband and I made a vow to uplift the
downtrodden and the less-privileged individuals as he had passion for
persons who cannot help themselves due to physical disability or financial
I can adduce this to the fact that he needed a Child from this
WOW. that's it. i know you're expecting it to go on. i was. good heavens, Mrs. Helena Williams stopped right in the middle of her sentence! do you think she finally succumbed to her cancerous ailment? wow. it's like every possible heart string is being pulled here: sick woman, infertile, dead husband, needs $$ to help less-priveleged individuals.
there are more on the way. it seems i won the UK lottery! what makes that especially exciting (and surprising) is that i never entered it! no matter....
