July 12, 2006

Well, hello! I...have been gone a while! It hasn't been like I have been doing something fabulous. I've been off working, because that is my thing, and in these last few weeks, I have been doing a lot of work. A lot lot of work. I have been doing actually so much work that I was averaging three nights of sleep per week and it got to the point where I had the big old crazy runaway-bride eyes all the time, and even my BOSS was hiding from me, whispering "she scares me!" whenever I'd stumble past, and finally a partner came into my office and grabbed my shoulders and hollered YOU REALLY NEED TO JUST GO HOME AND SLEEP FOR ABOUT SIXTEEN DAYS. And...well, I haven't done that, yet, but I did finish the project, and I have now officially written A Book, but I promise you that you will never, ever, ever want to read it. I do not even want to read it. It is the most boring book in boringtown, but it's written, dammit, so if you are just fucking dying to know about the judicial review procedures for an Occupational Safety and Health Stazzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz. Yeah. So, that's where I've been. Brought to you by a series of semi-coherent, run-on sentences. Aren't you glad I'm back?

In other news, I am so far behind in answering emails that my inbox has a comma in it, and so if you are trying to get in touch with me for something, I am sorry. I have been very, very worky lately, and have been exactly zero fun. Seriously, just ask Dukay! Or, anyone! I blow! They're planning on having me killed!

But, that is neither here nor there, because: hey! Speaking of email, I have to now complain that there is this whole new spam thing that the internet seems to have sprung on me while I was working, and it is pissing me off, because I keep on getting emails with interesting subject lines, from people with seemingly normal names that are not BIGPEN1SSSSMASTER, and so I open them, only then I am irritated because they are actually just spam ads telling me about my long lost relatives in Nambia, who have apparently died but they still need to borrow my bank account and social security number real quick. This is pissing me off, people. It is taking valuable seconds away from my life. Those seconds could be spent doing productive things, like making out or cleaning up dog pee, but instead, I am reading such questions as, "ARRE THe LADIES SsayinG THAT It IS NOT BiG ENuFF???" and that just makes me cranky.

I mean, wouldn't you be a litttle excited to get an email from someone named "Righteousness L. Abrams"? Wouldn't you even be a little bit more excited when you saw that the subject line was "Fuzz abdication!"? I was! I was really excited! And then I opened it, and: advertisement for a weight loss supplement. Fucking Righteousness! What are you saying, Righteousness? Are you saying I'm fat, Righteousness? That is very passive-aggressive of you, Righteousness. Frankly, I would have expected better from Righteousness.

I keep on falling for this, because I am used to getting email from people whose names I don't recognize, and a lot of the time, these emails have funny subject lines (actual example: "Man Panties!"), so I just open my mail automatically. And so my little heart just keeps on breaking, because I'm like, "Ooo! Mr. Ireland F. Calloway wants me to know about 'upside down weightlifers!' That promises hours of fun!" and then: herbal viagra for my SHOCKKINGLLY TINNY PEN1S. Honestly. Why do you build me up, Buttercup? Is it just to let me down?

But, there has been an upside to all this crushing disappointment, and I have decided that if I ever have a child, I am probably going to have to name him/her one of these spam names, because...holy shit. They are brilliant. I had always kind of wanted to take a wide variety of drugs and them name my child after household objects, Zappa style ("This is little Lightbulb Moon Oven! And her brother, Coca-Cola Fork Sphincter!"), but now I am thinking that the spam name is the way to go. I mean, I'm not going to have an actual kid for many years and all, but maybe I'll manage to produce one in the next half an hour or so -- like, possibly I can bud one, in the manner of yeast -- just entirely so I can give him a name like:

Cougar P. Sanchez

Intoxicant D. Degas

Lena Luffmister

Inmate C. Alumnae

Antonia Moody

Jeremiah Bourgeois

Condensation S. Horowitz

Inquiringly Todd

Menelaius J. Detail

Conversation L. Pauper

Booty D. Licious

Othello Wanderpants


All of these are actual names taken from my inbox right now. Now that I am finished writing that book about judicial reviezzzzzzzzzzzzzz, maybe I should turn my attention to a new writing project. I could put together the best baby name book in the world! As it is, I already kind of want to just print these out and start giving the list to pregnant women, all, "Hey, have you considered naming it 'Condensation'? Is your family name 'Wanderpants'? Why not? Well, you can have it legally changed to 'Wanderpants,' you know. Here's the phone number for the court." It would be like a public service!

Seeing, however, that the idea of writing so much as a post-it right now makes my brain cry, I am probably not going to compile such a list; instead, I think I will make you do it, as I am a slave driver in the manner of Cornelius F. Waggerbottom, who has popped into my life four times already shouting at me to LOOSE THE FAT TODAY!, after asking me quite innocently, in his subject line: "Does this look like a frog to you?"

(And, I admit it. I keep on having to check. Maybe this time it will look like a frog to me! Also, I am intrigued by the notion of something that might, or might not, look like a frog. What could it mean? Is it a fake frog? Is it a mold that has taken the countenance of a frog, like the Virgin Mary sometimes does on toast? Ever so many possibilities!)

And...oh, I was talking. So, anyway, I am a slave driver, and so, you do it! Y'all tell me the awesomest names you have ever heard, particularly from your spam, and then know what we will have? A huge ass list that we can give to pregnant women. And if just one of them -- just one -- names her baby "Inquiringly"? Then, people: our work here will be done, and our lives will be complete.

Everyone have a good week; I've missed all of y'all! But I may have missed Constipation D. Hooligan the most.

Aw shuck! I deleted the contents of my spam folder about an hour ago, so I only have two.

Lindsie Aubry
Helga Chandler

And let me quote for you what Helga has to say:

"The sorrow, he thought, was like a rock on the shoreline of the ocean. conjugate desiderata or.

"The movement ended the uneasy truce with the pain in his legs and the drug-need in his nerves, but it also diffused his terror a little. But when Shinny came in. The distance between here and Denver was like. "Paul did. inst. That is crazy, he told himself, and then he heard thought he did — a little rustling sound, the sound of a woman's starched skirt, perhaps, brushing lightly against the wall. What he saw crouched back against the all in a dusty shaft of sunlight was not a rat but a great big black cat with the bushiest tail he had ever seen. bucket"

I am now dying to know what Helga is trying to sell me. Possibly some very strong hallucinogens.

No... I've got it...

Pradeep Betancourt. Yep. That's the one.

Posted by: Molly | July 12, 2006 03:35 PM

You make me laugh. I never pay attention to the names anymore, but you were right, these are good! Here are a few from my inbox.

Jacobus Carino
Liviana Lundholm
Enosh Lukowski
Fairuza Pruett
Rain Mcdougle
Cicero Stockman
Eglantine Beckert

Here are the few in my spam box at the moment:

Rory Staples (I actually kind of like this one!)

Dillon Chappell who's subject line tells me to "travel my bleed" -- uhh, no thanks! Do you think he's related to Dave Chappell and can get me some of that $50 million he's giving up??

Lenard Winninger (not much to say about the untraditional spelling...)

Posted by: Mona | July 12, 2006 04:01 PM

Some of those are amazing. I'm laughing inappropriately loudly at my desk at work (Inquiringly Todd!) Here are a few from my spam, which thankfully I haven't deleted in ages (not quite as funny but for the sake of adding to the list - and finally delurking - here they are):

Anticon Involve
Ingeborg Sunni
Maurice Jolynn
Alleen Casandra
Leisha Charise
Marin Marlyn
Lesha Deidra
Georgie Ramonita
Adah Elenora
Sharlene Huynh

Posted by: Faith | July 12, 2006 04:09 PM

My current favorite is from Gustavo Head, and the subject is "progression prance," which honestly sounds like a hot dance craze I might like to try.

On the other hand, Aureliot Skinner wants to tell me all about "that possible quasi," which sounds indeterminately interesting... maybe.

Posted by: Mir | July 12, 2006 04:09 PM

First of all, that TOTALLY looks like a frog.

Second, I don't really have any good fake names right off the bat, even in my spam, but I recently heard about someone with the following name but without the hyphens in the first name to protect the awkwardly named but innocent:

A-q-u-a-n-e-t Bush

She goes by A-q-u-a, reasonably enough. There MUST be some story behind that name, though, beause my brain is unable to process that it would be either accidental OR on purpose.

So yeah. Common brands make excellent baby names EXCEPT when done as part of an actual advertising plan.

Posted by: Laurabelle | July 12, 2006 04:14 PM

Oh Maggie! I'm getting the same snippets from wanna be novelists! I don't know if gmail automatically makes them "safe" by removing all the links, but I never see anything to click on... Maybe they're just trying to torment me... I will never know how the story ends, just be left wondering.

Emil Gold tells me:

I'm hooked! But where can I find out more? Who is this person having the epiphany in the ditch? Does s/he make it out of the ditch (with the assistance of the first aid team and the aliant guards) and drive away? Does s/he continue on, exhorting others to never stop their learning? What am I supposed to learn from this? Or rather, in what way is this (presumed) advertisement supposed to draw attention to some lack in my life... a lack that could be remedied with penile enlargement pills or a little known stock offering? I'm baffled. All I want to buy after reading this is a book! But they won't tell me which one!

Posted by: Kathleen | July 12, 2006 04:18 PM

So then I immediately get a spam from "Fanny." Another successful naming tactic: body parts!

Posted by: Laurabelle | July 12, 2006 04:19 PM

Hey! Cougar P. Sanchez writes me at least once a week! It looks like you and I run in the same social spam circles!

I have in my inbox right now a missive from one Flakiness K. Cosmopolita.. That seemingly extraneous period after "Cosmopolita" is actually not my typo, it's part of the name - like Flakiness' last name is actually "Cosmopolitan," but when (s)he registered for his/her email account, (s)he just plum didn't have the energy to reach for that final "n." So: "Fuck it, I'll abbreviate." Heh.

I invoke his name at least bi-weekly.

How about Torborg Budd. It would be a totally great name for the Trekky-type family with a nod to the "good" stuff in life.

Posted by: Karen | July 12, 2006 04:23 PM

hehe this shall be fun. I have been annoyed by these spam emails for a while now - but this might actually be worth it.
Ok so we have the following:

My favorite of late is Tuna J. Piggishness. I love the recent onset of randomly-generated First Name Middle Initial Last Name spam.

And now a poem.

Amazing Your Passion by Abdul Octavio

Did those bus drivers regret singing?
A man comes from the dust and in the dust he will end
- and in the meantime it is good to drink a sip of vodka.
Let bygones be bygones.
For the lips of a strange woman drop as an honeycomb,
and her mouth is smoother than oil.
The Devil rides upon a fiddlestick.
Do not use a hatchet to remove a fly from a friends forehead.
Too many people in a dustbin means there not much room in side.
The politicians dislike playing all day long.
Turtle can't walk if he nah push he head outa he shell.
From tenor host toward grand piano, or warranty related to graduate
From tuba player toward cigar.
Steam engine around eggplant rejoices, and ruffian inside minivan returns home;

Bravo, Abdul Octavio. Bravo.

This popped up today on a site I read - someone was asking how they can make the spam poetry: http://ask.metafilter.com/mefi/42011.

Sadly(?), all of my spammers have totally normal names, like Carl Roberts and Ivan Cook. But the researcher in me quickly figured out that the "normal" sounding names in my inbox are all peddling software, while the slightly more offbeat people would prefer that I buy a watch or save on meds.

Oh, I KNEW I was keeping those 979 emails in my inbox for SOMETHING. I happen to be close personal penpals with the following:

Wiggins Tuttle
Kermit Painter (I have to admit, I kind of wondered if this was actually someone I knew. Back in the 1980s, my dad had an assistant who was NO SHIT named Kermit.)
Fawnia Lakshminarayan
Champagne Flynn ("have you thought about naming her Champagne if she's a girl? It would be so CLASSY.")
Riddle Bacon
Olsen Ashlee (what, like I would think some combination of Ashley Olsen and Ashlee Simpson was emailing me?)
Padraic Hirakawa (I suppose if you have an Irish mother and a Japanese father, this is what you'll get.)
Udell Norfleet
Yung Cassidy ("he looks just like a young Cassidy!")

I actually get funnier things in the subject line:

"Metaphysical antipathy? The girl was looking full."
"Or diversion, it's European."
"Agony can counteract this problem."
"Dolores called about Rachel."
"Evangelina told Freddy about sourberry."
"Monday will be available on Tuesday night." (Awesome! I really wanted to get that Monday back!)

However, the woman who sites next to me at work is married to a man named Angus Blower. Surprisingly, he goes by his middle name Jim.

Oh Miss Doxie, I just emptied my deleted items folder right before I came for a visit. But I did have these few new arrivals for the naming of new arrivals.
Voitto Lookabaugh
Marcellino Loll

I'm surely torn between "acorn" (no need for capitalization there) and "Cnaeus Pecora", both such strong, distinguished monikers.

Thanks for brightening up my day, now don't you go working to hard!

Oh as long as we're naming REAL names....there was a guy here whose name was "Dick Puffer".

He was a town administrator or something... No lie - he was being interviewed on the news one night & there it was!

There's so many "whys" there I dont know where to start.

I don't get much spam so I figured I'd go clean out the significant other's spam box and see what might be in there. I found these:

Nebuchadnezzar G. Semifinalist
Adequate S. Wells
Exaltation K. Ballsy
Herminia Gamble
Paperhanger K. Wrathing

Wow, it's been a long time since I emptied my junk folder. I have a whole survey of spammer names, demonstrating the various naming trends. First there were the normalish (if somewhat soap-operatic) names, of which a sampling follows:

Blair Leblanc
Marcello Hammer
Cornelius Larson
Menes Wojtowitz
mr Espinosa
Reda Benhouhou (my personal favorite)

Then we went through a single-name phase:

Angela (eek!)

Then a nonsensical phase:

Anyway, I've always wondered just what Jesus had to say to me. I mean, maybe it was the beginning of the second coming and all, and I was supposed to forward it to ten friends and make a wish and I would not be left behind, right? Oh well, I lost my chance! ;)

Also, the nursing teachers tell me all the time about babies named Shit'head and Fem-AL-e. And one fortunate pair of twins named Poppy and Pansy - fortunate because the father, who didn't speak any English except what he'd learned from the free cable porn channel, wanted to originally name Pansy...

Vicariously T. Wanderlust and all them. Hee. HEE! It would be great to persuade someone to give their baby one of those names.

I have another baby name, but it's unrelated to spam. It's partly named after a pitcher, partly a children's song, and partly a friend's fake name. It is:

While I don't get the exciting generated names, I am clearly on a list for men who either have sperm problems OR are looking for bored horny women. OR I need a luxury watch really badly. Examples:

Increased Sperm Count subject: Spur 'Em On
MaXxXL0ads : Sh00t L0ads Like a Cannon
LAST LONGER : (none)
Friendly Housewife : looking to get laid
HubbyCan't : satisfyMeAnymore
Harley Davidon (not a typo) : RolexWatch
Tiger Woods Golf : Tiger Woods Tag Heuer

and then there is this:

GSA : General Public Not Aware of This Program

What amazes me is that these used to be filtered, and are now slipping through the spam filters into my main box.....

Huh? Of course I opened it just to figure out what a large doge was. Apparently it has something to do with penny stocks.

All of this talk about these names makes me think of a recent episode of South Park where they find out the writing staff of Family Guy is made up of manatees who randomly put together strings of words (printed on balls they push around on their noses) to make the nonsense situations Peter (Family Guy) flashes back to. Maybe Internet spammers use a similar process for coming up with names and subject lines.

Ooo! So late to the game, but I have been on a month long vacation, so it is only fair that I still get to play. Right this very moment, I have an email from one Vaporize M. Mustache. Vaporize gives me a stock pick but then adds:

"me at least an explanation.
Were dreadfully sorry. But it is strictly forbidden to pass on
information to temporal aborigines."

Well! I never!
