It's Celebrate Spam Email Week, in case you didn't know.

My friend Lauri sent me two emails, two days in a row. If you don't know Lauri, she is the kind of gal that you email and she sends you a response well after you have forgotten that you wrote her in the first place. Now don't think that Lauri is a flighty kind of friend, she is just really busy. For exapmle, she had several hobbies at once while she was in law school. This is shaping up to be a banner week for Ms. Apple. Not because she has sent me two emails this week, but because of what was in them. The first email was to announce that her blog, foundclothing, was featured in the Chicago Tribune.

The email I got today started with "It's Celebrate Spam Email Week, in case you didn't know." Of course, the kind of "spam" she sends is about how a major newspaper wrote an article about her or how she is going to be on the Today Show with Matt and Meredith on Wednesday. When I send emails to my friends, it is usually to find out if they are doing something interesting because I'm not. I am a tiny bit jealous, but mostly because when I find clothes out in the wild they are just crap and she always finds super cool stuff. By the way, that little black dress you found was hot. So rock on, Lauri! I hope they put you up in a fancy hotel and you jump on the bed and order lots of room service!

Wow that's pretty cool, to be featured in the paper. Maybe one day we will too.

Oh, btw, saw a documentary the other day -- The Devil and Daniel Johnston. Austin, specifically, the Austin music scene had a prominent role.

Lauri is pretty damn cool. I guess we need to start finding things so the papers will write about us too!

I haven't seen The Devil and Daniel Johnston, but I remember when some jackasses tried to paint over his "hi, how are you" alien. the restaurant that tried to do it is long gone, but the alien is still there.
