I just have to go on record somewhere and say that this morning Awl's subscriber letter was completely fun and charming! And I love eggplant, and will be making the recipe…

Ha! Then you are not one of the unsubscribers, hooray!

I did actually go to Udaipur and stay at the Lake Palace hotel. (trivia — parts of the James Bond film "Octopussy" were shot here). But, there was a drought and the lake bed was dry. Herds of horses were grazing on the lake bed. Not very nice.

mine went to my spam folder. i guess it's not a fan of eggplant? or exclamation points? or the two together!

Just retrieved it from Gmail's spam folder. IDIOSYNCRATIC capitalisation?

Emily (#20)

mine got spammed too! Boy. Okay. "Digital life also clearly undermines the patience with which people used read and write." I'd like to post a really long eloquent response to this and some other things (reading in bed = very uncomfortable), you know I would. But, hey, a new slow loris video! http://videogum.com/archives/animals-on-film/sonya-the-slow-loris-is-nothin_067101.html

Spammed as well. Though at a glance I'd filter "Eggplant Reconsidered" as a "Having trouble viewing this email?" too.

Looking forward to see future titles that don't make it past the filter.

Oh yeah. That was my fault, for ALL CAPS.

LOL LIVE AND LEARN.

Have you tried caponeta?

OK, this is unrelated, (and I may be the fiftieth person to say so) but:
I'd like to say thanks for changing the ad that shows up from 'Juvenile Mall Security Guard movie' to 'Black and White French Art film'. However, the runner under the ad still reads '15 More Minutes Of Fart Jokes!!!'
I do presume this to be on purpose, and it has my full approval; and speaking of juvenile, I can't help giggling like a school-girl every time I try to think of what kind of fart jokes they of which fifteen minutes would have been cut.

(…hee hee hee hee hee…)

Oops! Syntax error!
Sorry!

NinetyNine (#98)

Dang, I didn't even get mine. Sorry for the Dreamhost crack, really! Or hating on Emily! Or whatever got me banned from eggplant updates!

NinetyNine (#98)

That was supposed to be a reply to Maura.

Oh yeah, I banned you. (NO I DIDN'T!)

Look deeper in your spam folder.

Tomorrow: FEWER ALL-CAPS SENTENCES.

Related: Gmail is racist. DISCUSS.

Oh the sads. I had no idea! I am a week late to the Spam party…
