Hello my faithful readers:
It's Thursday and I'm looking forward to the long weekend! This week has been sort of low key for me, but tonight I am planning to head out with a couple of friends of mine for a Raphael Saddiq event at Soho House tonight. I'm more interested in checking out the venue, but it will be good to see some of his performance from a new show "Live From The Artists Den" airing on a PBS affiliate near you. Before the screening tonight I have french class, so I hope I can maintain enough energy to get through the night.
Most of my co-workers have heard me rant and rant about a gentleman I like to call the "E-card Stalker." On Monday I got a message on Yahoo Personals the other day.
Here's his note for your reading pleasure:
HELLO MISS "COLGATE SMILE',
WHY DO YOU KEEP SMILING AND WINKING AT ME
FROM YOUR PICTURES WHEN YOU WILL NOT EVEN
WRITE TO SAY HELLO TO A BROTHA ? LOL .
SEASON'S GREETINGS AND A HAPPY NEW YEAR.
WRITE SOON AND STAY SWEET.
In response to this note I re-sent him an e-mail that he hadn't responded to a few months ago in his yahoo e-mail account. During this period of no communication between us, I received e-cards for Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years. This is where the "E-card Stalker" was born. I never responded to any of his e-cards because I thought it was downright weird of him to send e-cards, when he wasn't responding to my regular e-mail to him.
He responded to my forwarded note and said that my e-mail had gone into his junk mail by mistake. He inquired about my initial offer of setting up a coffee date, but I am so turned off by his e-cards to me that I'm not sure I can do it. All of his notes to me were super sappy and in my opinion inappropriate to send to someone you don't know very well. I don't do well with sappy men, in fact I'm a huge fan of people with snarky senses of humor; send me an e-card from someecards and I'm yours forever.
I'll keep you posted on whether or not I actually make it out on a coffee date with the "E-card Stalker." Although I want to keep an open mind about him, his weird e-cards have completely turned me off. How much do you want to bet I get a sappy Valentine's Day e-card from him? Have a wonderful day and I'll try to give you an update tomorrow about tonight.
