The Inevitable Sales Pitch

Yup, after failure as a freelance web designer, I’ve gotta prove to myself that I can make at least a buck or two with all these hard won skills (cough, cough). So… buy something from me, and I’ll get a pittance. I’ll try to at least make the offers interesting! My first item for sale is a large coffee mug for all you addicts. It is white and has the caption “I can’t quit, coffee makes me happy!”

Shop Madstone…

If you could talk to dead people, with whom would you talk?

My reply:

I think… Einstien. He would be a hoot at a party. If I couldn’t get

him, then Uncle Al Crowley. Ooooh! Carl Jung!

Picture this… a dinner party with Nietzsche, Crowley, and Ayn Rand.

Maybe Churchill to provide color commentary?

Spam Poetry

I found this one from the Blogger main page. The first poem I found on Kristin’s page seemed amazing to me. I post it here only so that I don’t lose it in her archives. She says that all of her poems are assembled from the subject lines of SPAM she gets…

I don’t know, I’ve never noticed interesting stuff like that, but maybe I’ll look at my SPAM basket in a different way tomorrow.

Kristin Thomas Spam Poetry: Sunday, March 28, 2004

Its the girl who always loved you

its the one that got away

Its the moment that escapes you

when the predator is prey

its the way to finally take charge

its a question of your hate

its the easiest part of your new life

when you finally seize the day

When the one you want rejects you

When the pain is its own drug

when you can’t take another moment

it is time for them to pay.
