Non Sequitor Hate Mail Dept.

I just got this fantastic email a minute ago. Here’s the message in its entirety:

Subject: I read what you wrote

I have to say you are the most blatantly and openly uneducated and uncivilized. You tear carelessly into what other people believe to be good. Thank you very much for insulting all the things that I enjoy, mainly, The X-Files, Stargate, and Star Trek: Voyager. How dare you. Well if you can express your opinion so carelessly, so can I.

Eat Sh*t.

Thank you for your time.

Wasn’t that spectacular? My response:

I have no idea what you’re talking about, or what it is I wrote that you read, so it’s difficult to respond to your seemingly random email. I can say I believe the first three seasons of X-Files were excellent, and I saw two episodes in the first season of Stargate that I thought were clever.

But indeed, I do think Star Trek: Voyager blows apes from start to finish.

And thus my day is made. Actually it was made when my girlfriend called this afternoon to demand I stop working and watch Blade with her, as she hadn’t seen it before and the previews for the sequel look cool. And then it was made again when, at the video store, I stumbled into the new special edition DVD of Tombstone, one of my favorite guilty pleasures–it’s that western with Kurt Russell and Val Kilmer and that older guy with the mustache. It’s a two-disc set! Whoo hoo!

So now my day has been made three times. I’ll post updates if “Eat Sh*t” boy writes back. See how easy it is to get mentioned in a dispatch?
