Thank You For Sharing!

I love the fact that my mom,  my family, and friends fill my inbox with great links to interesting articles, funny pictures, tips, jokes, and political stuff that is not party-specific (though my sweet mom can send me anything she wants simply because she is my mother!). I’m not as crazy about the “forwards” that show up because I’m on someone’s e-mail list, but I will take the good with the bad. Even if the bad includes warnings about my phone blowing up in my hand if I talk on it while I’m pumping gas with my car turned off. Or insist if I forward something to 10 people a little green man will do the hokey pokey for me, or even something more wonderful. Do you know how many times I have been disappointed when the little green man fails to show, let alone actually do the hokey pokey? I’m also not going to whine if you don’t delete the stuff that comes before the good stuff in an e-mail that you are forwarding to me. I mean, really, how long does it take to scroll down a little bit? There are more important things to worry about, like does that little green man ever show up for ANYONE?

Never hesitate to send me something or leave a link on Odd to a tidbit you want to share with me. Yes, my inbox fills up, but that is why I became an Evernote Ninja—so I could gather all the great stuff other people hunt down for me. Although I will tell you if it has to do Jack Russells. I have probably seen it once or a million times… Could you please just not send me the link of Jesse the Jack Russell making the bed and loading the dishwasher again…? Rascal, if she cared, might think people were trying to tell her something.

If you have the time to share it with me, I have the time to look at it.

To share or not to share… What are your thoughts?

Odd Loves Company!

  1. Funny about the little green man who never shows. For the most part I enjoy the things people send me and when I don’t it’s simple enough to delete. I don’t like constant business requests from my real estate friends.

  2. If you think it will make me feel good, laugh or think by all means send it on. I do appreciate knowing when something isn’t family friendly since I often have a nosy kid looking over my shoulder.
    Give it up Kb that green man is never going to show up.

  3. Never heard the one about the green man showing up. What I usually get are bunches of flowers that supposedly multiply when you forward them, or angels and stuff. I’m always glad to hear from family and friends, too — some of the stuff they send is stuff I’ve read before, but forgotten; or stuff that’s even better with time; or some funny I need to make my day. I think sharing is one of the nicer things about blogging — sharing and building relationships. Guess that’s why they call it “social” media?!

  4. I don’t like the send this to 10 people ones either. It’s simply a way for the gremlins to plant cookies. I’ve never met anyone who admitted writing one of those things, have you?

    I confess to being an occasional forwarder, but I do strip first(e-mails, I mean.)
