grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

What are the chances?

We all get email spam. It tries very hard to look like email a person might want to open up. The emails use crazy name combinations and subject headings trying to sound like normal email. Once I got an email from Edgar Allen Poe with the subject "I'm not mad at you any more." I filter out spam email with the wonderful little app SpamSieve so I don't have to constantly look at emails about viagra and large penises. Every once in a while I look through the folder of filtered spam for anything important. Tonight I got an email from Irma Grace. What is odd about that? Well. That is the name I would want to name a baby girl. Irma was my grandmother's name and Grace was my other grandmother's middle name. That was the name Jo and I were set on until my mother told me that not only did my grandmother not really like her name (Irma) but that she made my mother swear that no one would be given that name. That kind of puts a damper on the name Irma, although I still think it is beautiful. (Instead we are going with Charlotte Grace.) (I'm not pregnant or anything- that takes some planning- which I am sure I'll blog about in due time.) So what are the chances of getting spam from an Irma Grace? I think it is pretty damn weird.
