E-mails from the rich and/or famous

Check me out with my Outlook Inbox literally brimming full with e-mails from the rich and/or famous, and that’s only from the last two days!

Yesterday, as you can see above, I got an e-mail from none other than Sylvester Stallone himself! I have to admit that I’ve never really been a tremendous fan of Sly’s movie offerings. I think I saw Cliffhanger once. On telly. But that’s not going to deter me from doing the courteous thing and replying to him. After all he did take time out of his busy schedule to write to me and offer me a selection of

“MS 2003 top Windows Software at best s8vings”.

He says that I can download them instantly too! And what a lot he has on offer: Microsoft Windows XP Pro, Office XP Pro, Server 2003 Pro, Adobe Acrobat 7.0 Pro, and a whole lot more.

Next up I got a kind e-mail from Danny Wallace, replying to the text that I’d sent him from the Soulfly gig the other night. I’d spotted that from a distance the Skindred guitarist bore an uncanny resemblance to Mr Wallace. Okay, well, it was just a specky bloke with a similar hair cut, but I thought that Danny would appreciate it. That arrived at 10:47 am this morning.

A couple of hours later, just after lunch, I heard from Michael Moore. He wants me to send him my health care horror stories. Mike, I’ll have to think about that one and get back to you, hope that’s okay.

One hour and six minutes later, at 2:26 pm, Jennifer Aniston e-mailed me offering:

Symantec Software titles available for Download instantly.

Even with 10 Mbps cable broadband I’ve not yet been able to download anything instantly. But I have to say Jennifer — if you’re reading this — thanks for the invitation but you were just too late. Sly got in there first, and he seems to be selling the same titles as you. For the same price, I’ll admit, but courtesy dictates that I give him first refusal. Sorry. I hope we can still be friends.
