I love words. Sometimes they can be so stupid, but other times you just have to start a mantra with a favorite word or phrase. Good ones I've learned while watching the Favorite Videos of 2003 on VH-1:

visual bon-bons (see my current journal icon for an example)
freak-a-thon
wanksta

In other totally unrelated news, I was in a fairly good mood today (read as not quite as neurotic as usual). I felt pretty productive, considering I really didn't do anything... er, productive. I went through my entire bulk folder on my Yahoo email account and either unsubsribed, filtered out, or otherwise sent out complaints to each and every message in there. Took me a couple hours. It probably will only make things worse, but I'm happy for the moment.

In other news, I'm thinkin' that the increase in my site traffic lately is a good thing. I have had a few people contact me lately asking about advertisements. It just surprises me I suppose, especially considering who some of the people are. It's a good thing though, as the last one actually paid me for it (rather than the usual link-exhange offers I get...). Oh, I suppose there are downsides. I actually had representatives from the owners of the Monty Python Flying Circus show (one of the ones featured on my site) and asked me to take down the episode transcripts. Despite having had to go through removing all the questionable content, is it bad that I actually felt pleased in the fact that someone bothered to ask me to do it in the first place? I don't know, I guess I feel special now. I'm weird I know, but then again I've been eating brownies again.

Hubby is so cute. I got so excited the other day when I thought I got a spam for some sort of female issue. It was patches. I was thinking maybe breast increasing patches, but no such luck (not that my DD self needs them...). Anyway, it turns out to be a male ad. Hubby felt sorry for me, so since he's the one that gets all the ads for women, he thoughtfully sent me his. *snerk* It would be my second spam ad for women. Yesterday I got my first. It was something with bunny ears. O_o

Oh, and my Dad called me today. Of course I missed his call and had to call him back, but I still got to talk to him. It was weird. It was okay, though. He had surgery to implant some radiation seeds.

...of the dirty variety. Mom had me use undelete software on the desktop computer that Dad left behind. He cleaned out his harddrive, so we kinda wondered if he had something to hide. As it turns out, he had some interesting files. I found all sorts of transcripted text files from messenger conversations between him and his girlfriend. That's right folks, his girlfriend. I'm totally squicked. Couldn't read most of it, but it did leave enough information to give to the lawyer that can be later verified (dates and mentions of various files for their trips, gifts given, etc.). Gah. I seriously need to clean my brain.

So, hubby helped me out. Get your minds out of the gutter folks. We had a Hugh Jackman movie marathon this evening and watched X-Men 2, Kate & Leopold, and Swordfish. Yeah, that's the stuff. Swordfish gave me a plot bunny though. It's gonna be a big one, and I'm not entirely sure I can pull it off without help. Basically, it would be a Spander (what else would I write?) and it would be loosely based on the relationship between Travolta's and Berry's characters on Swordfish. O_o It all makes sense in my head. I've just gotta figure out how far reaching their manipulations with people go, if they're working for someone else (and who it would be), how Buffy and Angel figure into everything. Fun, yeah? I thought so.

Oh, and I totally hate Yahoo right now. They tightened the bolts on their bulk email fiters. I didn't figure out until late Friday that the reason I wasn't getting any of my emails and replies was because they all ended up in the bulk folder. I don't know how many emails I must have lost. Order receipts, mailing list subscription emails, emails from people in my address book, replies from others... Oh, and of course any emails notifying me of replies to entries in my LiveJournal. If I missed anyone, I'm sorry. I still don't have it fixed, but at least I know where my email has been all this week. *sigh*

Email Hell

I went on vacation. I came back with over 1000 emails waiting for me. Actually, my Outlook and servers weren't working right when I first started, and Outlook crashed once under the weight of the emails, so I actually had 2000 when the emails re-downloaded.

I had about half of them end up getting filtered out, so that was good. Part of the problem has been that I recently closed three email accounts on my domain. So now my catchall account is sending them all to me. I know, setup a filter to not have them sent. Didn't get a chance to do it before I left though. Now I'm getting so much porn spam, it's just unbelievable. Not all of it is that, there's some email from Japanese pharmaceutical firms. Yay.

Sigh. I finally got it all done, though. Oh, had a decent Thanksgiving. Watched the extended version of the second LOTR, and The Italian Job. WooHoo! Good fliks, and next one I'm gonna watch is X2 *bounce bounce*

More from me on Monday when I'm done with my Nano, once and for all.
