A few weeks ago (ok, I'll be honest. I just realized, by looking at the dates below, that it was actually last week. I could have sworn that this happened weeks ago, this just shows how little time is impacting my life) our spam filter at work died.

This doesn't happen very often but when it does we get flooded with all sorts of lovely emails. I had no idea there were so many prospective Russian brides! And they're all so friendly!

So I had obviously just deleted those except for the one below that I copied and pasted. It was from my sister and while the subject looked like spam I couldn't help but passing it along to her.

Usually when emails are forwarded the most recent email is at the top. When I copied this email I did the opposite. The original email is first then the replies below it are in response.

Oh. I thought you knew? This was the new blast I sent out to my customers. Thought you might like a sneak peak. Bad choice? I was just thinking with Valentine's Day and all, who doesn't need a Russian Bride? -Kristen---

Usually at work we're busy dealing with problems (that's the job) so we need to find every opportunity we can to laugh at something during the day. The email above was my laugh for the day. For Valentine's Day, everyone is getting a Russian bride. There are tons to go around for anyone who is interested.

My Jamie actually had a Russian girl propose to him and offered him $5000 as a bonus.
