"Here's what I am doing?" Conversation. I would rather have some real personal or virtual contact than being part of a long forward list.

I love getting jokes through e-mail. I have 3 friends who send jokes all the time. Two of them send some of the funniest stuff I've ever read so it makes my day. I don't always respond but I will send a remark like "hilarious, thanks for the uplift. Hope you're doing well " every now and then to let them know I got the joke and appreciate them so they keep sending them. The personal note is just a one liner so it takes me about 20 seconds to type and send it.

What I am getting tired of is the constant political bulls*** that keeps coming to me. Enough is enough. Some of the stuff I'm getting is just plain nuts.

I am too. My next-door neighbor sends a lot of funny emails, and I love most of them, but for the last few months she has sent so many political ones that I have ended up deleting a lot of them without opening them. You can only take so much, even when you agree with them!
