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....
