Coffee in the Atlanta skyline mug, "See You Again" by Miley Cyrus (aka Hannah Montana) on iTunes. Dave just rolls his eyes and comments drolly on the similarity of the effects of menarche and menopause on women. Whatever. I am now 47 and I no longer feel the need to hide my more juvenile tastes from the world. And I never liked the Who. So there.

Today as I continue to work on the computer I thought I would share a couple of my favorite recent spam emails sent to Siyeh Studio (no edits--they are as I got them). From yesterday:

"Hello Sales,

I am American citizen residing in Russian Federation,I got your contact from my friend in your country and i am very interested in your product which i will like to buy because due to the quality .I will like to make an enquiry regarding to place an order through the MAIL ORDER and kindly advice me if you can ship to Russian Federation and if you accept fast means of payment,i.e credit card (Master Card or Visa Car) Get back to me Asap so that i can provide you with the product i want to order from you.

Hope to hear from you soon and Kindly get back to me with your website again.

Oh yeah. I guess American citizen doesn't mean speaks English, but this was too awful. And for creativity a la "The Sting" (you can't con an honest man) purportedly from the Internal Revenue Service:

"Internal Revenue Service (IRS)

Return address on the email is service@irs.mu.gov. Now that I've chuckled for the day I'm off to the hot box aka the Studio. Lots of videos on Stranded in the South.
