My Lucky Day

(Picture from 'The Norm' comic)

Saturday I worked on sending out "Save The Date" emails for the upcoming wedding.

  • I put together a graphic that looked like what we think invitations will look like.
  • I composed a short short little bit of text.
  • I added a photo of Cora and I.
  • I assembled the email list into sets, and fired them off

And that is the instant Atë (Greek goddess of ruin, folly, delusion) stepped in and farted in my general direction and called me the son of a motherless goat.

Every email I sent out was garbled on the first try.  Sometimes on the second, too.

Don't believe me?  Check out some of the mangling:

Okay, this one's not so bad.  The water is green with envy.


But this is serious, you can mess with me, but don't touch my lady!


This next one only uploaded partially.  I guess it wanted to keep 'em guessing.


And this one wanted to make them read between the lines.


This one is a little shifty…


And I really hope this one didn't make people think we were having a rainbow themed wedding.


And before you ask, "Where's mine?"  It, ummmmm, must have gotten lost in the doggone internets must have Atë it.

oh man i hear you.

I want to do this to the bastard printer on our floor.

Especially the baseball bat part.

And the part where they would have to PULL ME AWAY FROM ITS DEAD BROKEN CORPSE.

I think it is lovely that you are having a rainbow-themed wedding, absolutely lovely.

Does the state you are marrying in allow for "rainbow themed" weddings?


Okay, how does stuff like this happen? Are you using one of those download/upload managers?

Cora said...

Don't you Atë when that happens?

Since I was feeling "JINXED" I thought I would throw around some Dead Med. references. :-)

Could have been that Mania (or Maniae, depending on how you wants to spell it, Guv'nuh) might be pestering you now. Hoping that Aponoia won't bother you, too.

You mean you're not going to post an open invite on the blog for all of your loyal followers?! :)

Shana said...

Yeah, I was going to ask where mine was.......

I'm so excited for the two of you. Hopefully the computer glitches will be remedied soon.

I like the shifty one. The receivers probably thought that they'd had one too many, so yaaaaaaaaaay celebration!

I can honestly say I've never seen an email do that. I've seen scans go screwy and viruses do stuff, but that's nuts.

I'll make sure I send you my copy of "Rainbow Connection" as a wedding gift.

How about a Fringe reference?

It's obvious the alternate forms of you were trying to make an appearance into our universe.
