Wow! Congratulations. I've won several international lotteries, but never such a prestigious award. You should be so proud. lol!
Congratulations.. You have been targeted..
I wonder how they knew you were the winner, if they don't have any of your details?!
Cool, an electronics award. All I ever get is some princess needs help. Or I win the microsoft email lottery. It must be legit, I mean, he gave out his email address!!
wonder why the need to know about your sex tho?
that's not the only thing I'm wondering . This is the second (or is the third) that I received an email such as this in the same email address....Hmmmmmmm, does this mean something?
that they arent checking to see how many times they sent it? I get real mail scams all the time. They want me to call some number, then they say I won something but I have to agree to buy magazines...and I have to give them my bank info over the phone,they cant send me anything? yeah, ok....
how f*ing cold is it at your end of the world? here its 3 below, but my god..the wind...and teh heat broke in my van this morning...
We've actually in the middle of a heat wave up by me. I think it's like 15 right now. Last week we were doing good to get up to 2 though.
must be nice, wearing your shorts?
Im here, in sweatpants,long underwear, shirt and seater, wool socks, and my hat, and my fingers can barely move...thinking about putting on gloves...
hey emie, I could use some money too now that I think of it...I want to go somewhere warm...
Actually, I grilled dinner lastnight in shorts and a t-shirt. But that only because is was a balmy 10
You can come over here DM. We have sunshine in the morning, rain in the afternoon and a cool evening .
Oh my gosh! Where are all of you? I thought I was cold and its 23. (Wait, are we talking the same measuring system here... I'm Farenheit.) I guess I shouldn't complain! lol. We are, however, supposed to get around 12 inches of snow tomorrow... ugh. Time to check the tires.
Lol this is a trick and hoax hehehe... and it is superficial...!
When did you first feel the black and white bull's eye painted on your back (sorry - on your email addy)?
Lucky emi! All I get are young female orphans in refugee camps who want a friend - and money - to get them and their FAMILIES (??? - what does the word orphan mean to you???) out of Nigeria, or Ethiopia.

I just received an email congratulating me for one of my hubs being selected as "Editor's Choice". It didn't tell me which hub was selected however and I checked my stats and there is no new hub labelled "editor's Choice." Does anyone know how long it takes to show up?
