I hate to be a Debbie Downer, but contrary to the claims of the random hacker in China who graced my gmail account with his cyper-presence last night, it’s not true that “Last week. I have orders China Quantity: 21 Products Apple MacBook Pro”, received “A Product!” and deemed it “amazing!” I’m so sorry if I and my hacker friend had gotten your hopes up. But, alas, as far as I know you still can’t get a Mac ripoff that “has high quality” that “muc cheaper” than the real thing.
Still, in the spirit of LLW, I would like to take a few minutes to offer some gratitude to my mysterious cyber-friend:
- Thank you so much for deeming my humble gmail account worth hacking to send your little advertisement. I had no idea that my name carried enough weight to make this worthwhile – but with this new knowledge I plan to march even more boldly than usual into the rest of my week.
- Thank you for speaking English so poorly that the 417 or so people that got “my” email at 4:42 AM this morning probably weren’t bamboozled into thinking it was really from me.
- And, finally, a heartfelt thank you for getting me back in touch with every single person that I’ve ever emailed. I can’t tell you the delighted responses I’ve gotten from old friends, coworkers, wedding vendors and ex-boyfriends letting me know, “in case I hadn’t already realized it,” that I’d been hacked and otherwise wondering how my life had been going in the [x] years since we last spoke. Yes, dare I say I’ve had the time of my life today – and I owe it all to you-ouuuuuuuu…
Still, we’re sort of in a fight for getting me at least temporarily banned from Freecycle for trying to spam the entire members’ list.
Kiss kiss kiss, love, love, love,
