Get Off My Back Hotmail!!!

Why the hell is hotmail harassing me? Sending me notes about how I might want to "connect" with someone who once sent me an email or some other random people I have never even met! And then sending me updates when someone changes their profile??

No, Hotmail!! I do not want to join their network!

Plus, I kinda don't trust their ability to make sound email networking decisions. I keep getting emails telling me I can totally become a medical billing specialist. Seriously hotmail?? I barely pay my own bills. Why on earth would you think that I can become a bill specialist?? I scoff at your HR department Hotmail! And, for the record, I really don't care what new features there are. I'm there to send my parents and email or maybe track the status of my Amazon.com order! THAT'S IT! So BACK OFF!

However, things are looking up in Khartoum!! I got into my car this evening to drive home and the mail fairy came!! At first I was all annoyed because I ordered a new-fangled phone (you know, the one with the keyboard so I don't have to hit the stupid number keys like I'm living in 1937 -- "this is KL5772, can you connect me to Mrs. Kravitz?") and they sent me the accessories FIRST. So now I have to wait until the mail fairy comes again here - which God only knows when that will be -- and HOPE and pray I get my phone!

But that sounds bad right? NO! there was ANOTHER box - not associated with the stupid box of phone plugger-iners - This box was from my Mother in Law. She sent me a box of LITTLE DEBBIES -- and something for Josh, but I pretty much just threw that aside when I spotted the tell-tale braids underneath it! (whatever Josh! I'm sure it will be somewhere when you get here. Don't count on the Little Debbies though.)

The woman is a SAINT! Thank you other mom!!! You ROCK! (Seriously you guys, best MIL ever....EVER!!!)

Suspecting a potential threat from desparate Ramadan fasters, I immediately took one out and the promptly hid the others in the freezer (where I found another lone swiss roll I forgot I had previously hidden when I was hoarding snack cakes -- however, that was frozen and I didn't have that kind of thawing time available to me).

Would you guys do me a favor? Next time I start ranting and lamenting my lack of access to snack cakes -- remind me I have hidden them, would you?

I think we can all agree that would be best for all involved....

I started sending Care Packages when daughter # 1 was in college and we moved 1000 miles away. Now all of my daughters are adults and I still send them. About 4 years ago, I started sending them to our soldiers in the middle east through anysoldier.com. I know you're MIL enjoys your happiness in getting them. She's having fun in the sending too.

Good thing you are not starved for Omaha Steaks.
Little Debbie has a much more forgiving shipping requirement.

What a great MIL!!!
Did you just "out" yourself as a food hoarder??

Brave. . very brave!!!

I guess it is ok as long as you only eat them when it's dark, right?

Still, you would think the mail fairy (of all people) would deliver the phone AND accessories together.

Are you really in Sudan, or are you in Virginia, just hoarding Little Debbies in a warehouse somewhere!? hehe

Mango Girl said...

What else have you hidden? Perhaps in your free time you can tear the house apart ~ you never know what you might find!

Was your passport hidden with the swiss cake roll?? Seriously did you ever find the passport?? Dig a little deeper in the freezer.

okay, snack cakes and little debbies? you're a wuss, an amateur. Ring Dings, Yodels, Devil Dogs, anything Entemanns that is what the pros eat, pros like me for instance

Until you send me a pack of Little Debbies, how on earth can I know what you speak of? Until then, you're all talk, little lady...all talk. Ha! That there? It was a gauntlet, girl: A GAUNTLET. Take that...

What women wouldn't want a message from a hot male?

blognut said...

Man! I have missed all your bitchin'! I'll be back later to see what else you've been whining about, too!

Susan said...

Glad you got a package. Like the one I said I'd send. But you're going to have to earn it: as in send me your address ONE MORE TIME. This time, I swear, you'll be rewarded. BUt not with a phone.
