Beware the Ides

Beware the Ides of March. Since it’s March 15th, I wanted to remind anyone who could possibly forget to be extra careful today. Whether you’re standing in line at Starbucks, blogging or working on an assembly line, you don’t want to get stabbed in the toga. It’s seriously dangerous. Well, once it was.

I am amused and annoyed that I have been pegged for a Jesus freak just for standing up for theists and agnostics and admitting that my cultural background was Christian, so that’s what I have in my mind. I keep getting all these “Dear friend in Christ” e-mails. Probably shouldn’t have put my e-mail on the page, but I like to live on the edge. Anyway, anybody out there who’s thinking of addressing me in such a manner, please know that you will be promptly marked as junk mail, and I will never hear from you again. I am not passing out Bibles, becoming a brickyard preacher (at NCSU, we had a lot of them, having a brickyard), financially supporting your Jesus project or anything else. It is not my mission in life.

Discussion is fine, though. Just don’t call me your “friend in Christ.” It gives me hives.

I signed up with Gmail, and use that for my public email. It's worked pretty well for me. It lets my internet friends get in touch with me, and reserves my primary email account for my family.

Instead of handing out bibles, what if we handed out transcripts of bot-chats, specifically those with potential theological implications? `/^

Right, now I need a sufficiently bizarre way to sign off... Er... your friend, not-in-her-mind, Qalmlea.

Actually, my snark account is not my primary e-mail account. It's just for this page and a certain bot of the same name on the Personality Forge.

Very interesting . . . the not bot versus a Christian bot.
