Ha, Ha, Somebody

Yesterday I got a bug up my butt to do something about the incredible amounts of spam email I receive.  And so, I clicked on a few to 'unsubscribe'.  One of them was the following:

Dear Shanique,


We would like to introduce you to PATRICK from DAR-ES-SALAAM, Tanzania.

Utilizing our Duet® Total Compatibility System, and based upon Personality, Values and Ideals, Life and Lovestyle and Preferences we have found that the two of you could be a perfect match!

Apparently, Patrick is 25 years old, and is into computers and the outdoors.  He is a risk taker, high energy, optimistic and seeks predictability.  Perfectmatch.com believes he could be my perfect match!

I have always received emails from Perfectmatch.com, but never clicked on one before.  This intrigued me, and so I ventured onto perfectmatch.com. 

"Welcome Shanique!", you have four new emails.  Huh?  OHHHHH, I get it.  Somebody set me up with a Perfectmatch.com profile.  Semi-hilarious.  But when?  The first email was from 2007.  Sorry, sarcastic (and maybe a little racist?) friend, I didn't get your joke until just now.

If you couldn't make your marriage to Ryan Reynolds work, I doubt Patrick from Tanzania has a chance. :)

Hey cuz, my mom clued me into your travels the last couple of years. Not sure how that equates to earning a living but amazing to say the least. I will try to start following your blog and let my wife in on it as well. I strongly urge you to skip any travelling through Mexico as it is worse than you've heard and can imagine. If however, your jaunts take you through New Mexico then we can make a date.

Good to hear from you Keno~

Jacqui! I'm totally planning on calling Ryan now that he's free. I just hope I still have his number?

Kady, I am sad on two accounts:

I really was rooting from Ryan and Scarlett.
I'm really obsessed with your potential mate's interest in "predictability"... but
I liked it so much my stomach hurt a little.

I am afraid that for the past few days i am only able to count each one of your posts as .5 blog due to the obvious 'phoning' and blog entry padding. you're not fooling any of us. you've got three days to legitimately hit you goal of 365. now on with the poop stories

That last comment was from Mitch.

Kady said...

Yes, Mitch, I anticipated this. But since I am the one who said I am phoning it in (acknowledging it before you could call me on it), I will continue to count full blog entries.

I hope you like photos of nothing because that's what you're going to get. 16 in the next 3 days.

This is part of my "I know that you know that I know" philosophy. This is why I tell people that I farted before they can wonder if it was me who farted.

...oh, and Summer. This Patrick guy doesn't exist because you can't be a risk taker and like predictability at the same time. Paradox.
