This is why I dislike people who don't use bcc

I just received an invitation to join Friendster from someone I don't know. I thought maybe it was one of my LJ or BC friends whose 'real' name I had forgotten, and was just about to post here asking if anyone knew who it was. Then I thought to use the search facility in Gmail to see if her name showed up.

Yep, she was on the list of about a gazillion names at the top of a 'funny' email which had been forwarded to me. A gazillion people, all with my email address so they can send me spam...

Bah!

Falling leaves.

Your message reached me.
I'm not quite sure
How to interpret precisely what it said -
I never learned the language of flowers, even,
Still less that of autumn leaves.
The general import was clear enough:
I send you beauty, you are in my thoughts.
I'm a little shakier on details.
Is the precise shade of gold significant?
The size?  The subtle gloss?
No matter. Love is there, at any rate.
