Those Fantastic E-mail Forwards

I hate those e-mail forwards.  You know, the ones with the 18 bazillion rules at the bottom (OK, well truthfully its usually closer to 4 than 18 bazillion).  You must forward this to 12 friends. You must do this within 12 hours. You must do everything this says.  If you don't then your crush will be flattened by a piano while walking to tell you that he/she is madly in love with you, then you will never find true love and live your life with 15 cats and die alone. 

Yeah, that pretty much sums up those e-mails.
I am an e-mail forward hater...(I do like that chalk guy's drawings though)..in fact, I've been known to send e-mails back to the sender saying..."..this simply isn't true...you better tell everyone that they won't be receiving those free computers/cheques from Microsoft...."

The other day Henrietta Huffenpuff (yes, another new one...I've been waiting to use Huffenpuff in some one's name for a while!) sends me a bunch of e-mails.  It's not out of the ordinary...but this is what she sent.

followed by this:

There comes a point in your life when you realize:

Who matters,
Who never did,
Who won't anymore...
And who always will.
So, don't worry about people from your past,
There's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.
Give these flowers to everyone you don't want to lose in 2010,  Including me, if that's what is in your heart.
Try to collect 8 ; it's not easy!

I had no choice but to send this back:

In Henrietta's defense, she phoned to tell me that she did not forward me "the one about gang's using baby strollers to lure mothers in for the attack.  I know how you get about that crap...so I checked it out on snopes...it's not true by the way....but a little Fengshui, who couldn't use that!"  ..."I mean other than you"

Dare to be different.

And just a quick little note.  I will be posting Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from now on.  That way, you guys will now when I should have new stuff up!

p.s.  I had to make the pictures of the e-mail's small, so that they'd fit in the post...sorry :(  I know they are ridiculously difficult to read.


  1. I hate those forwards too! Blah! However, am also a fan of the chalk drawings! Man, that guy is really talented! :)

  2. While annoying, they do make excellent blogging fodder, no? ;)

  3. I don't get these, I musn't be important enough to spam. :(

  4. I hate these forwards, I went through a phase where I was too frightened to not send them as I was having a crap time and needed any potential luck. I have a list of friends with the ability to press delete without feeling that they might have bad luck etc etc. may add Fizzie to that list so he feels important.
