Dear Myspace: I want 2 break up with U.

Choice exerpt from a message I just received from some random guy in New Jersey: "I also enjoy travel, experiencing different geographies and people. My eyes are brown, and I have fair white skin. I do not smoke. I do drink on social occasions.i graduated from OXFORD UNIVERSITY AT UK... Bcos i was brough up by mom there...... well Concerning sexuality, I am not a promiscuous woman. My desire is to be sexually faithful to the woman I marry. If two people love each other and will communicate what they like and do not like about their partner's sexual behavior, I believe many problems can be resolved. Moreover, I am currently working on my own cos i had to try something else after i lost almost all i had to my last relationship i just got into the business of collecting is a nice thing to do..i buy and sell antiques and well i am on a trip to to get some antiques in WEST AFRICA from here aint fun anyway but i will be back home soon(MoodyAL)to the United States very soon, hope to hear back from you Remember, I need real love..i dont play games and i aint ready to be played...." Apparently, I look like I've been hit with the stupid stick. You graduated Oxford, did you? They don't care much for punctuation over there, eh? Big fans of capitalizing (excuse me, capitalising) random words? Yeah, not getting a response, this one. The sad thing is this is only a third of the message. The rest is just as unbelievable. Even better? It's a copy of some other numbuts' form letter. He even left the other jerk's location and gender in. I'm still trying to figure out what the scam is. Perhaps lending him money to start an antique business? Oh no, wait, or is it paying to fly him to Oxford to visit his sick mother? *eyeroll* I made soup. It is delicious. Nothing new around these parts. Happy Thursday!

My random MySpace messages aren't nearly as interesting: "I saw yo' pictures. We should talk sometime."

I think my income listing might deter any scammers; can't get much money from someone so broke. :)
