: : I guess I should know better, I answered my own question with google.

: : So here's what I don't get: if the scam is that you have to "pay a fee" in order to receive your lottery winnings, how much do you pay? And who on earth could possibly fall for that??? Haven't there been a gazillion documentaries or articles written about internet scams, to inform those who hadn't already figured it out?

: : And why am I suddenly getting so many of them? and how do I stop them? *shakes fist at spam filters*

: : *sigh* but I figure this board needs postage, so why not babble about silly things?

: : I just had a fantastic halibut steak. I usually just go for the cheapest fish, but I have to admit that was pretty damn good. Mmmmm. I covered it in a sauce of lemon juice and mustard, with a tiny bit of soy sauce and plenty of thyme and rosemary.

: : But now it's time to read my book! Especially since I decided today it was too heavy to take on the bus as commute-reading, so I've been deprived all day!

: I guess since it costs the spammers nothing and if one person falls for it, then hey. I hate spam and spammers with a passion. I get about 1,000 a week...luckily it all goes directly to my junk mail folder and deleted. It's crazy.

: Hmmm...halibut is good! What book are you reading? I just finished the newest Charles de Lint book called Widdershins. It started out really good and then just got a bit dull and maybe preachy at the end. Preachy isn't the right word though. Anyway, it was okay.

: Alle

I am reading... book 5 of Crown of Stars by Kate Elliott. I think the title is THe Gathering Storm. Which reminds me I'd better try and get my hands on #6 and #7, because I'll be done soon! I've been reading the series for a couple weeks, but I've devoured the last couple pretty quickly.

I'll have to check out the de Lint book regardless, I think *g* I enjoy most of his stuff, although I do have to admit some more than others. Mainly I like those urban ones centered around that city, whose name slips my mind *l* Thank you Jojo....

Jade
