Contact form bumpiness July 11, 2016 7:50 AM   Subscribe

Just a quick heads up: we've had a little trouble with some of our email list stuff recently; some contact form messages haven't gotten through in the last 2-3 days. Should be rectified soon, and now that we're aware we can get at the messages server-side so we can respond promptly and catch up on the backlog, but if you were getting radio silence over the weekend that's what's been up. Sorry about that!

I didn't check the box that said my contact form email required immediate attention, and I just assumed all y'all were super busy with all the bullshit that's been going on recently.

But my request has since been taken care of, and so whether you were busy or not, it's all good.

What? You didn't get any of my love letters? Well, know that I adore all of you mods and the longer I spend in this place, the more I appreciate each and every one of you and your spectacularly good moderation.

That reminds me: last night, Secretariat and I impulse-watched the 1997 film Snow White: A Tale of Terror with Sigourney Weaver and poor old Sam Neill, and in it Sigourney's vain evil stepmother character has a brother, Gustav, who is a magician and keeps doing magic tricks, and like four different times I wanted to shout THEY'RE ILLUSIONS, LILY at the screen.

You can ignore steps 3-5B of my email because I managed to strike a deal with the stevedores but I still need the rest of the stuff in there done, especially the parts involving the box labeled "NOT DRACULA."

I thought it was because I paid for 3-5 day priory email, instead of the free same-day e-delivery, so all is good on my end.

Lucky you didn't receive my e-mail. I never sent one. That would have been creepy.

The model of restraint.

That whole bit about Richard Burton querying me about horses was just a dream. Carry on.

This is the eighth time today I've mentioned the The Baader-Meinhof Phenomenon in appropriate context. Huh.
