Whoa!  And how well was her dd going to do at university if she couldn't pass the exam to get in?

That question requires the use of logic, reasoning and a semi-functioning brain

I got a spam today with this in the subject line:

I love your eyes and the way it looks at me makes me go so craze at you. The silent language spoken by your eyes makes my life more romantic. I want to get myself lost in your smiling eyes.

The body of the email is a link, which, of course, I will not follow.

I got one last week that said they saw my profile pic on FB and thought I was cute and wanted to get to know me better (or some such wording)....

I really laughed out loud because my FB profile pic is one of me and my sister and brothers when we were younger, I was about 5.  I wonder how "he" knew which one I was  :P

I got one like that too!!   I'm so sexy-looking, and he really wants to get to know me better.

My Facebook picture is a picture of my cat, who apparently is getting more action than I am.

My grandmother called yesterday.  She'd subscribed my two older daughters to a magazine (it has different age levels, so each gets her own).  She said she had just wanted to let me know she'd received a renewal notice and she'd be renewing the magazines.  I was puzzled at this, because I didn't *think* they'd been getting the magazine for a year already.  Thanks to this thread, I knew that magazines try to get you to renew and renew and renew.  So I accessed our account online and discovered that we're up for renewal in December, not now.  So I was able to tell her that, and she can save her money for six months.  :)  I'm contemplating whether I should contact the magazine and tell them that I'm disappointed in them.  They might contract out that sort of thing to another company.  But, nonetheless, it definitely doesn't give me happy thoughts when thinking of them, and I *do* like the magazine a lot!

These renewal notices may have nothing to do with the publisher of the magazine at all.

Every issue of Harper's has a box warning subscribers against fake renewal notices. 

Also, the mailing label on each magazine we receive has the date of the last issue printed on it somewhere.

It probably wouldn't do any good as they all do it. Drives me up the wall too.
