Salt water taffy?

I'm a little ticked off at the moment, and it all started with an e-mail I received this morning. I don't know, maybe I'm making a mountain out of a molehill, but the cheek of some people!

I pride myself on being, on average, a good and loyal friend...but I know that friendships change and that it's unrealistic to expect to be best friends with everyone forever and ever -- although I'm thankful that some of my friendships at least have become (semi)permanent fixtures in my life, 'cause where would any of us be without our friends?

All of my friends and acquaintances know I hate spam and unsolicited mail. I rant about it often enough. They also know that they shouldn't misuse our friendship to try to sell me something.

So what could have made Kim think it would be alright to add my name to the distribution list for her brand new webstore selling the sort of trinkets she knows I have no use for? With an accompanying note extolling the desirability of the merchandise she's selling -- what would I want with a plus-size 'Oldest Duranie alive' T-shirt?

First she can't be shagged to answer my e-mails for months, then she sends me this? Though it is a nice site...maybe I'll congratulate her with it one of these days when I'm feeling slightly less offended...

Oh, and another thing: how come Nigella Lawson's bust doesn't look anything like as enormous as mine, and she's a 32G??

Now that I've had time to think about it, I'm sure she didn't mean to upset me, and would be horrified if she knew she had (did I give her my URL? cannot remember!).

It's just that I hadn't heard from her in ages, and then this e-mail comes in out of the blue, and just in time for X-mas shopping! Do you think she can fault me for thinking her motives a little bit dubious?

But it is a great site and I'll certainly tell her so!
