You know, I suspect there may be something wrong with my email.
I’ve actually suspected this for a while because… well before I say why I’d better explain why I haven’t said anything about it before which is basically because I’m terribly neurotic :). You see I’ve emailed a number of people, and not received any replies. Rather than say anything about this I’ve been sitting around trying to decide if…
- They’ve received my emails and have just been too busy to get around to writing a reply, which is perfectly reasonable.
- They’ve received my emails and have decided to ignore me :).
- They haven’t received my emails, and are sitting around wondering exactly the same things I’m wondering.
The problem is of course if it’s option a and I then write a follow up email saying “Did you get my last email? Why didn’t you reply? What’s wrong with you?!” I’ll be guilting people out who have perfectly legitimate reasons not have emailed me back – which I don’t want to do because sometimes it take me ages to reply and I would thus be making myself a hypocrite of the highest order. But on the other hand if it’s c they may well be sitting around wondering why I’ve decided to ignore them – which isn’t good either.
So I’m short circuiting the process (sort of) by putting my dilema in blog form. That way I know people will see it. If they come and read my blog that is. Hmmm.
Anyway I’ve got the next two weeks off from work so I should be blogging a bit more frequently, but before I go I’d just like to say that Attagirl by Bettie Serveert is a fantastic song, and you can download it all free and legal (along with Aluminum, Copper, Iron, and many others) from Playlist Mag’s downloads section. Go check it out, your ears demand it of you!
PS: The ABC seem to be randomly skipping Dr Who stories featuring the Daleks. With Day of the Daleks this was merely annoying – with Destiny of the Daleks it’s confusing, since there’s no explanation why the comparatively likable Mary Tam suddenly turned into the extremely annoying Lalla Ward. Mind you, at least they played Genesis of the Daleks (their new HQ in East Perth probably would have been stormed by irate Whovians if they hadn’t) and we do have K9’s unexplained voice change in The Creature from the Pit to distract us…
