The Starry Wisdom, Redux

From the 20th of July:

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21): I think it would be healthy for you to wander out to a frontier and explore a boundary. You might even want to re-examine a taboo you haven’t questioned in a while and tinker with a formula you thought you’d never change. I suspect that you would also learn a lot from gently pushing against a limit you’ve come to believe is permanent. Having said all that, I’m cautious about advising you to go further. If you get urges to actually transgress the boundary and break the taboo and smash through the limit, please do lots of due diligence.  Know exactly what you’re getting into and what the consequences might be.



What to do with this, exactly, that was my problem.  Which envelope to push, which questions to ask.  As with all of Rob’s guidance, this was about recognising and taking chances.

Coralled!!

This week has been a trove of thoroughly ridiculous spam-mail, but here are my two very favourites:

From Simionescu:

A slim brunette with big boobs in heels from S.”

And within, a list of links to, um, questionable movies.

And from Leda Driver (a rarity in that the name matches the email address):

Does your cock renounce to work?  Bring through him ot this illness!”

Seasonal allergy symptoms get thousands of people by surprise every year.

Choose your way to your love-life’s chargers.


Just superb!

In the spams tonight.

Recently I’ve received a number of spam emails entitled “Will Facebook kill the high-school reunion?”
I believe that high-school reunions are a very American notion, much like the high-school prom, and as such are fairly alien to cultures outside the US and an adopted “tradition” that has crossed the Atlantic within living memory.

Now I could go off on an ill-informed diatribe about such invented traditions, where people in English-speaking Europe assume US traditions as their own under the full belief that these traditions exist in their own cultures thanks to a smorgasbord of US film and TV providing rich historical and social details about these traditions viewed through the eyes of the participants as a backdrop rather than in analysis.  But I won’t.  My point is somewhat different.

Facebook will never kill the high-school reunion because Facebook does not serve beer.
