Bad Milk...

Have you ever pulled something out of the refrigerator, smelled it, then after jerking your head away said to someone else "Oh my God! You have to smell this!"? I call that the bad milk principle. It is so bad you can’t resist sharing.

I received this email in my Spam folder at work today and this is a perfect example of a bad milk moment.

Subject: Potential Spam: Monetary prize from Microsoft

Dear Microsoft Consumer!

Within the limits of advertising company Microsoft has played USD 1000000 between the clients. The choice occured in the casual image. On yours e-mail the monetary prize at a rate of USD 52346 has dropped out. To receive it, it is necessary for you to visit ours Resolution Centre and to fill the small form.

Please click here to visit the Microsoft Resolution Centre <>
Corporation Microsoft congratulates you on a prize and that you and in the further will use our development hopes.

Microsoft Corporation"

First. I have to say that this is a pretty bad attempt at fraud. If you are going to be sending this to native English speakers claiming to be from a company that has more money than God, you should at least have checked the grammar, because they sure as shit would have paid big bucks to have it reviewed before sending it. Said company feels that grammar is so important that they include it in their word processing software at no extra cost.

Second. Microsoft is a company based in the U.S. so why in the hell would they use the "USD 1000000" with no comma, no dollar sign, and with the USD? Also, why would Microsoft spell "center" as "centre”? If Microsoft were in the UK I could see that but... Oh man. I pasted this into MS Word to check my own spelling and in addition to spazzing about the grammar it picked up on “occured” instead of “occurred.” Missed that one. LOL

Third. The web address just screams "gonna load so much shit on your machine that you will end up having to reload the Operating system, all your data, and any other software you had on it to get rid of all the crap."

I hope you understand why I just had to say "Oh God! You have to see this!"

Little Frog and Not So Little Frog Update

After a time I went and checked on the little and not so little frogs that I rescued in the "Kentucky Fried Frog" post. I noticed that they haven't been back. I went and asked my landlady "have you seen the frogs?" She said "No I haven't. I think they got washed downstream."

So now I can only assume that they are happily living out their reptile lives in someone elses window well. What were the lyrics to Born Free again?

Sing along with me everyone...

Born free, as free as the wind blows, as free as the grass grows,

Born free to follow your heart.

Live free and beauty surrounds you, the world still astounds you,

Each time you look at the stars.

Stay free where no walls divide you, you're free as the roaring tide,

So there's no need to hide.

Born free and life is worth living, but only worth livng,

Cause you're born free.

Live free little froggies...

Still not a convience...

So I went by to the store today. I tested the Dr. Pepper and still no good. I tested the Moutain Dew and it was good!!

Too bad the slurpee machines aren't working...
