dreadhawk

& as your resurrection breathed out cinnamon

i've begun a long but fun process of having myself removed from the postal lists of every credit card company, bank, postcard manufacturer, telephone company, & anyone else stupid enough to send me unsolicited paper mail. the reason this is fun & not tedious: i take the postage-paid return envelopes they enclose, scribble "spammer" & "take me off your list" & "<company> sends unsolicited mail" all over it, then stuff it full of whatever they sent me. if you fold the contents so they make the envelope bulge, the company has to pay more to receive it.

if you're really lethal, you can quite legally take that return envelope & tape it to, say, a cinder block, & return that to the company. i haven't gone that far, but i have recently taken to writing "ps, i've enclosed some of my trash for you!" on the envelopes & sending other junk mail along as well. this gives great satisfaction. & so far, it seems to work pretty well. feel free to try it yourself!

ok, so we all know spammers have been taking quotes from random works & using them to disguise their garbage, but i found this one particularly odd:

If a man give his child to a nurse and the child die in her hands, but
the nurse unbeknown to the father and mother nurse another child, then
they shall convict her of having nursed another child without the
knowledge of the father and mother and her breasts shall be cut off.


ok!

two things on commercials:
a) i'm into cingular wireless commercials for one reason: they proclaim, "if you can't see the line, how do you know when you've crossed it?" & i think we all recognize that I REALLY IDENTIFY WITH THIS, SO MUCH.
2) they changed the subway commercial!@$# har har!%@ it's now "every bite more delicious than the last". KA-DECAPITATE, EAT MY SHIT, SUBWAY.

what the fuck is going on this saturday? WE MUST GO.
