“all ingenious is simple”

“all ingenious is simple”

I was going to write a back-tracking post about all the fun things we did last week after it snowed and snowed and snowed. Like how the whole family went out and made snow angels, and how we finally made it to the Natural History Museum (Simon was in love with the North American mammals), or maybe about how we celebrated our 6th anniversary and managed to get our yearly trip to the cinema in a scant 3 days before the end of the year. (It was definitely worth saving our pennies to see HP7.1. Agreed?) Or maybe about how we rang in the new year in no special way, except by being ridiculously happy that we managed to follow the plot of Inception, which we watched as we waited for 2011 to arrive.

I was going to write about all that. But then I got distracted by my spam filter. It said there were 41 spam comments. That’s really not too many. But 34 of the 41 were for this post. And they made me laugh. Because they were trying so hard to be sincere when they clearly had no idea what the post was about.

A sampling:

“You are not right. I am assured. I can prove it. Write to me in PM.””The authoritative point of view, curiously..”

“I perhaps shall keep silent”

“What necessary words… super, a remarkable idea” (Well, thanks!)

“I agree with you, thanks for an explanation. As always all ingenious is simple.” (Yes, as always. I’m so glad for the reminder.)

Maybe next time I’ll have a good back-tracking post for you all. Sorry to disappoint. :)

  1. That first spam comment cracks me up. It sounds just like this letter a Filipina sent Jon from the mission while I was out there. You’d have to get him to quote it for you, but trust me, it’s awesome.

  2. That’s so funny, I wonder why you got so many spam comments on that one.

    We watched Inception to bring in the new year, too – great minds… ;0)

    And yes, we LOVED the most recent HP movie!!! I think it was the best movie since the first (amazing how the closer they stick to the book, the better the movie…). I can’t wait to see part 2!

  3. It probably is some Filipina person . . . or maybe some computer program. I don’t know. I’d love to hear the letter, though. :)
