In an attempt to simplify my life just a little bit, I’ve been systematically unsubscribing from email lists lately. Has anyone else noticed how those little suckers creep up on you? I make a habit of opting out of marketing messages when I sign up for stuff online, but even the stuff I’ve opted in for (sales, whatever) has become overwhelming. It’s gotten to the point where I am missing the few legitimate emails I’m getting in a sea of bullshit I actually signed up for. I can’t even blame it on spam. It’s spam I invited to my inbox. What’s a good word for that kind of junk mail?
I’ve also been doing this with catalogs I get in the real mail, because honestly, I’m just tired of dealing with stuff I don’t care about. I want less extraneous stuff like junk mail catalogs in my life, and more meaningful stuff like checks for $1,000. Would anyone like to send me a check for $1,000? I will totally open and cash it. I’ll even let you include your stupid catalog as long as you don’t mind that I’m totally going to unsubscribe from it later.
You’ve all signed up for Plinky, right? If not, you totally should. It’s the new hot thing to do. You can follow me at this link. Although it looks like trying to publish my most recent Plinky answer to Facebook wiped out my entire wall. And that’s no good. Because I sort of live on Facebook these days and if my wall gets wiped out then I can’t remember who I know or what I’ve done.
I think that’s all I have for now.
