I never get any spam to my inbox, one of many reasons to love gmail. I do, however, check my spambox almost daily to delete messages and see if anything got stuck in there. It rarely does, but there’s always some fun invention to laugh about. Here’s one fitting under the classic category of “Nigeria 491 scams“- it’s like taken straight from a bad action movie. Agents, Benin! And I can get the money today! Whoah. Too bad they don’t know I’m in Mozambique. Why did they go all the way from Benin to Texas if I’m just next door? Or something. Enjoy!

On another, equally hilarious, note. Today I got a comment from a colleague I haven’t seen in a couple of days: “Caroline! You look different! You look.. uhm.. fatter! Like, there. *points at chin* It’s like there’s more fat right there. And also on your cheeks, and around.. all over your face, it’s more like.. round. Yes – you’re definitely gaining weight!” There aren’t really many rules to what you can comment on here, and I love it how people can just be hilariously honest.
Anyway, maybe a week of malaria would be a good idea, after all. Here’s a photo of the best reason in the world to gain weight.
I have brought with me at least 2,5 kg of candy this time haha :-)
You would think that after so many 491’s they could’ve learned to become a bit more convincing.
