I get a lot of emails. Every single day my email blows the freak up. It’s ridiculous. But honestly it’s all really good stuff. My spam blocker is sic and what’s left is a fantastic hodgepodge of information. (oh…if I could RSS feed my emails inbox to others…hahaha)
Take this morning for instance. I’m barely three emails in pass messages from friends and my received weekly travelzoo.com updates have me salivating over the idea of, what if someone gifted me a vacation?! How sweet would that be?? Seriously. Can a girl get a couple of big baller friends to Chelsea Handler style just hook her up? I mean, seriously. (gag me with a stick for the trips she lavishes on her friends and family. Luck. E Don’t know what I’m talking about see her book Lies Chelsea Told Me)
A few weeks ago while reading up Karen Klein (Think back to last month’s verbally abused elderly bus monitor.), I learned about the stranger to her who came up the with the “Lets Give Karen -The bus monitor- H Klein A Vacation!” idea, and used the crowdfunding website indigogo to put the plan into action. The goal was to raise $5,000 to send the 68 year old Klein on a vacation after her bullying by 7th graders was captured on video, and went viral. The campaign is scheduled to end Fri Jul 20 at 11:59PM PT—mere days away. Last I checked it was at half a million then, and as of today it’s toppled at $682,486!!
So travelzoo thanks sooo much for reminding me that a trip be such a fantastic gift!! SERIOUSLY!! I wouldn’t even care if the whole thing was preplanned: if you pay for it, I will go.
Dear loved ones,
Today I saw this in my email for next year: three continent trip!!! via travel.zoo
Feel free to “surprise me” with it.
Still speaking on notes in my email,can I give a shout out to the
writer of this Groupon ad for Up to 86% Off Laser Hair Removal in Beverly Hills
“It’s healthy to kick out excess hair, just like it’s healthy to kick out adult children who have asked for your blessing to marry the couch. Shed dead weight with this Groupon.”
You just earned you whole paycheck with that description. Good job!
One more of this fun inside Maggie’s email game.
http://www.punchbowl.com/learn is a great source of inspiration for the party planning challenged. Not that I am or anything, but I’m a crafty senorita and a reformed sender of cards for no particular reason type of gal (Happy Tuesday!!), who just did a little cheer in my throat over the ‘Olympic watching party’ suggestion. Not because I want to have an ‘Olympic watching party’ or anything, but because it reminded me of my friend Kara gabbing over drinks last that how her and her ex used to have blast being boring and watching the Bachelorette together. And I got to thinking that would kind of be a fun smallish party.
To name a few…
- Millionaire Matchmaker (Bravo)
- MissAdvised (Bravo)
- The Bachelor and the Bachelorette (ABC)
- Love in the Wild (NBC)
- Tough Love (VH1)
- Love Broker (Bravo)
- The Choice (Fox Network)
- Ready for Love (coming soon to NBC…)
This will be a night of non alcoholic beverages (let’s leave the liquid courage drinking to those on the boob tube) and Pinterest created finger foods. Come have a roaring good time talking shop per say in this alternative format, as dish/discuss our own brand of reality at these non-scripted programs.
An at home double, triple, or whatever date completely worthy of a Paper Source created invite.
