The wisdom of “18” year olds, courtesy of email spam.

I have an old email address that frequently seems to be used to sign up for odds and ends in the spam department. Some of it is more easily rid of than others. And some of it is more entertaining than the rest.

Below, please find some gems courtesy of a spam email featuring “18” year old girls. Only two lines of text for each in the email, and I feel that’s partly what makes it so magical.

  • "hello))) I am a fun, energetic, sympathetic and never be weary lady. For me the glass is always half full) I’m an optimist and my friends often tell me that I look at the world through rose-colored gl"

The big wins for me: elder than me, I think that I consists of, and [I am a] never be weary lady.

Sol - The Making of Eyes Open

I’m something of a selective hip hop listener, but for the past week I have been completely enamored by Sol. I stumbled across his Eyes Open EP on Rdio and have been pretty much unable to listen to anything else for the past at least four or five days.

I love it when something catches my ear and leaves me wanting to just hear it and learn it inside and out. From music to lyrics, this EP has captivated me.

Spent the evening with friends last night. This is a work in progress in their backyard. It spoke to me. We’re all on a journey, but that’s the best part: enjoying the swing will remind of the process it took to make it, and how challenging and fun that was.
