As I was told, years ago, by some unrelenting teacher in junior high school, you should always check you junk papers before you throw them out.
She, in fact, was the one who helped the class and I set up our first email accounts and to set that habit in motion there as well. To travel a bit even further out in coincidence land, that account was in fact Hotmail. An account I opened in 1998 and used until I got one of those golden tickets, otherwise referred to a gmail invitation.
My relationship with Myspace is similar, yet not as educationally guided. It was cool and then it was NOT. Simple. We don’t hang out anymore. Relationship ceased.
The real kicker is the email below I found in my junk mail today.
I was apparently such a missed, loved, important asset or as it’s says lucky enough to be selected as one of the beneficiaries to these two companies that the government now deems it necessary to pay me a crap ton of money.
