as every good diva should… i love christmas.

drinking at breakfast time, chocolates galore, fabulous presents, flimsy excuses for dressing up… all washed down with a massive dose of cheesy music, big grins and gratuitous hugging.

but… and it’s a big butt…the downside, apart from financial ruin, is going back to work. so here i sit while others are still smelling of vodka and cinnamon and my first job is wading through spam. let me first explain how spam works. a bunch of desperate people who don’t know how to spell but know how to look busy, are employed by large companies to write messages on blogs that look like real comments by real readers. most bloggers like a bit of feedback, as it makes us feel interesting and relevant.

even a hugely popular blogger like me only gets about three genuine comments a month. so for your reading pleasure, here are a few of the 100+ spam messages this blog has received over the past week…

and this from the ultimate spammer (i don’t have a website dot com… seriously)

Thanks for this downright website; this is actually the form of thing that keeps me on track through these day. I have been searching for your site after I heard about them from a pal and ended up being pleased once i found it after hunting for long time. Being a demanding blogger, I’m pleased to find out other folks taking initivative and adding to the community. I want to comment to show my appreciation for your work as it is quite energizing, and lots of freelance writers usually do not get appreciation that they deserve. I am certain I’ll always be back and will spread the word to my local freinds.

Excuse, that I interrupt you.

thanks for listening.
