Comments are Spammy Fun

I hope spam comments are an indication that a website is getting traffic.  If it is, the The Cool Consumer is rolling!  We get spam comments all the time!  Mostly they’re those “tired of getting useless traffic on your website?” *uh, yeah* ones, or the ones who are all, “want to know how to make $5000 per day on the internet?” *for sho, fool!* and those are obviously spam.  My favorites are the ones who actually talk about the posts, while it’s obvious that they are posted by a bot and didn’t, in fact, read the post at all.

This one just came in on the “About Micah” page of TCC:

“Hey man, was just browsing by means of the world wide web searching for some information on this and came across your blog. I am very impressed by the info that you just have here. It shows how well you comprehend this. Bookmarked this page for further reading, will come back for more. btw,do you have any suggestions for weight loss options for children?”

If this was a real comment my response would be something like “feed them less.”  But since it isn’t, I decided to share this with you.

Another time, we got spam comments from this website called youngjeezylosemymind, saying that they didn’t understand the information put forth in the post.  Since that was on the “About Micah” page, and since Micah is the only one of any of us who had ever HEARD of Young Jeezy, that was pretty ironic and funny.  Incidentally, that youngjeezylosemymind website wanted me to login, play a game, and then it crashed my internet.  “Lose my mind” indeed.


That middle yellow one?  That “Only God” link, when you run your mouse over it, shows you that it goes to oneallah.net, which I am afraid to click on, because I fear that I will be put on some list that questions my patriotic nature or something.  The body of the comment says:

“Okay article. I merely discovered your website and wished to say I’ve actually enjoyed reading your ideas. By any implies I’ll be subscribing for your feed and I really hope you write-up yet again quickly….”

I did a site search to see what kind of content was on OneAllah, and here you go:

Site Search for One Allah

So, in addition to learning about someone’s opinion as to the one true God, you can learn how to care for your fish pond, and buy a sofa set, and get your man to stay with you.  I still didn’t go to the site.  I like having little mysteries in my life.

Now to my regularly scheduled panic about not getting enough work done.

Today's been a weird day

So the hubby had his wisdom teeth extracted today. He responded remarkably well to the knock-out drops and woke up relatively coherant. I let myself get too hungy, not wanting to eat because he couldn’t eat, and not wanting to say that I needed to eat because I didn’t want him secretly thinking “it wouldn’t kill you to skip a meal or six.”

I’ve got about 30 extra pounds on me. It’s well distributed, in that I don’t look like I’m 30 pounds overweight, and I am frustrated. I’m mainly frustrated because every three days or so I turn over a new leaf and decide to really do the diet/exercise thing and then I wake up the next morning and eat something awful for breakfast, plan to workout on my lunch break and work straight through it instead. Tomorrow, tomorrow. I’ll start tomorrow.

I had a nice little freakout in class tonight, thinking that I might have seen a sore on the lip of the guy sitting behind me and that he might, just might, have taken a drink of my water when I got up to go to the bathroom. Working though my issues, I drank my water anyway. I’ll let you know if something horrific starts growing on my lip.

I haven’t had any more success with my Heart Walk endeavor. It’s been such a struggle. I haven’t been able to get my point across to my AHA rep in a nice way–I had to get nasty with her to explain that we’re not the type of company that is NOT busy enough to have her stopping by every week to talk about this campaign. Sheesh…it’s hard enough getting people to participate once they find out they need to raise money, but throw in a well-meaning and cheerful outside rep who approaches her corporate partners like she’s trying to sell them a boat and you’ve got some overworked do-gooders who don’t feel too much like doing good.

The only problem is that in my effort to get her to comply to my (and my company’s) wishes as to how we want to run our own fundraising campaign, I’ve told her how hard I’m working to reach our $25,000.00 goal. I feel like not reaching this goal will be an admission of ineptitude and she’ll be proven right in her guerilla not-for-profit managing tactics. Yipe. I just hope we can come close to the goal.

Trying to get through an episode of Saving Grace, but I don’t think I have it in me. I think I’ll shower and go to bed. I feel beat up–poor Hubby’s the one with the wads of cotton in his mouth and I’m feeling sorry for myself. Shame on me.
