I've accumulated 3,073 pieces of spam in my gmail account in the last 30 days. Must be a new record. The only bright spot is that at least all these messages have been filtered out of my inbox and I never had to deal with them.

Oprah Wants Me Back

I let my O magazine subscription lapse in 2006. I had paid for a multi-year subscription and when it ran out I was in cost cutting mode and I just couldn't afford Oprah any more. When she started writing about the things she just couldn't live without and it included $70 sweat pants, I knew she had jumped the shark. She just wasn't in touch with her peeps any more.

Guess what? Oprah wants me back! I got the following offer in the mail today:

Mmmm, yeah. I think I'll pass. Even at the reduced 'research' rate of $15 I just can't bring myself to subscribe. I'll stick with Cooking Light, thankyouverymuch.
