I’m starting to dislike Yahoo!Mail… my premier mail service of choice over the last few years.

As you have probably noticed, I have been away from a computer for several days now. I’ve been at Sarah’s Uncle Doctor Bob’s house (or is that Sarah’s Uncle Bob, PhD.’s house?) and have been entertained and entertaining Sarah’s parents, cousins, uncles and aunts, brother, and extended family. It’s been quite a curious weekend.

As as you may know, through generosity nearly impossible through the human spirit, Kerry gave me a car. It’s a four door ’92 Ford Taurus sedan, and his name is Meister. The story behind that name is not very interesting, but it’s a fun name, so accept it.

And so, after having a great time riding down to San Diego with Sarah’s Uncle Ken and Aunt Sue, then having lunch with Kerry, receiving the car, setting up a decent insurance policy, and seeing my parents for a little less than an hour, I decided to embark back up to the coast to San Luis. But I stopped along the way in Torrance, at my Uncle Bill’s and Aunt Val’s house, and I decided to stay here tonight… just to be safe. I’m not sure if I’m more tired than I feel, but I can almost guarantee that I am.

Which brings me to why I am currently in anti-Yahoo!Mail mode… Since I’ve been out of the running, I’ve racked up a whopping 512 spam e-mails, pushing me 12% over my mailbox limit, and every time I try to click on “Empty Bulk Mail Folder”, the site crashes. It’s happened on three computers so far, on completely different internet connections… And it’s also meant that I haven’t been able to check my Inbox, in case anyone sent me anything important.

But I have a lot to be thankful for, and thankfully another day to resolve the problems with my email before I jump into the two most hectic weeks of the quarter, the two last weeks of the quarter.

I have so much to be thankful for.
