1. misdirected email:
Good Afternoon [name], Thank you for registering for Friday’s Anonymous Sexual Addictions workshop.
Hey, facilitator dude, how about checking the email addresses before you send them? OR here's a thought: don't put anyone's name in your email! Then if it gets misdirected, nobody will know who was supposed to get it! And nobody will have been inadvertently outed! Just a thought.

Anyway, I can't decide if that was the worst (in the sense of most embarrassing or potentially harmful) misdirected email I've ever received, so I have made a poll:

Open to: Registered Users, detailed results viewable to: All, participants: 30


Worst misdirected email story:

View Answers

The thirty emails in a day from Wells Fargo about someone's account overdrafting
5 (16.7%)

The email from a pastor with a ton of details of a couple's marriage counseling
23 (76.7%)

The email from google informing me that my email address had just been set as the account-recovery address for someone's professional hotel reservations account
5 (16.7%)

The, like, 200 messages from eHarmony users about someone's online dating profile
3 (10.0%)

The abovementioned email about the anonymous sexual addiction workshop
16 (53.3%)

Listen, my story is much worse than that! Let me tell you all about it in the comments.
2 (6.7%)



2. joy: someone linked to this photo on tumblr, and it made me go all happy and awww. Because it is adorable!

Criminal Minds' Shemar Moore and Matthew Gray Gubler grinning with their arms around each other. Also, Shemar Moore is wearing a really kick-ass hat.

That's Criminal Minds' Matthew Gray Gubler (Spencer Reid) on the left, and Shemar Moore (Derek Morgan) on the right. I have no idea where or when it was taken -- because, you know, tumblr -- so I sadly can't go and look for other pictures that might also include Kirsten Vangsness grinning. Criminal Minds turned into a different (worse) show in its last few seasons, but listen, Morgan still has my HEART. Okay, he and Garcia are sharing it. Anyway: just look at those grins, awwwwww.

3. photo-spread misogyny: Apparently Vogue did a fashion editorial spread on a Spider-Man theme. It is like, here are the films (and a lot of the comics) in a nutshell: Mary Jane is menaced by various villains with phallic bits to their costumes while wearing designer dresses and looking beautiful and unconscious/threatened/withdrawn. It's all right, guys, Peter Parker will save her!

4. tv: Lately I have been watching The Sarah Jane Adventures? I started at the beginning after I watched the one with Eleven and Jo Grant, which was awesome and made me go \o/. And mostly it is a great mood-improver and full of happiness. They save the world with hugs and talking about their feelings and hand-holding! Rani and Maria and Luke and Clyde are adorable! Sarah Jane is awesome and has issues and backstory! They are a FAMILY. That saves the world and talks about aliens and emotions and love. If only most of the villains weren't evil lady-types, and if only the good guys didn't do that awful Smallville-esque targeted amnesia shit, I would have basically my ideal show.

5. Avatar: The Last Airbender: You might've seen this already, but just in case, did you guys see [personal profile] such_heights's post in [community profile] white_lotus about an Avatar: The Last Airbender gift exchange? [personal profile] inkstone suggested the exchange + the lunar new year posting dates, and a bunch of people said they were interested, so it looks like it will happen! Fanfic, fanart, fanvids, etc all accepted. So if you have preferences for style/rules/etc, plz comment at that post; we're going to try to get rules up in a couple of days so that we can do signups before the end of November. \o/ ATLA exchange!

Replies to my gross former boss, who posted to Craigslist as a "married businessman who gets lonely on trips to San Francisco"! UGH.

Ugh that Vogue spread! And it is so self-congratulatory.

More annoying than anything else; I get a bazillion emails a day (well, more like 100 or so) between the hours of 11pm and 8am because some girl who works at a tech support company in Bangalore gave them MY email address instead of hers. I get everything from chain emails, birthday e-cards, business proposals, and monthly accounting reports. I’ve emailed them back to let them know that I’m a woman from Canada but they always reply back with something like “oh, so sorry… what department are you in then?” *headdesk*
