We have multiple email addresses. One I use for signing up with things. I get three hundred spam emails in there a week. Its Yahoo.
One is for my blogging, my gmail account. Me and hubs use that for any email we actually want to receive.
One is for family and Hubs to use. It has a built in spam protector that SUCKS ASS. It takes any email it wants, holds it hostage for a week to ten days and then sends us an email telling us which emails it has stolen and put in quarantien.
This morning I got the Hey we stole your mail wanna see it? email.
Lets see. Spam. delete, delete delete, oh! Youtube comments! Deliver. delete. delete Oh! Another YouTube comment, deliver. delete .delete.. this went on for a while. There were emails from friends and family in quarantine, there were comments from bloggers in quarantein and of course, those two YouTube comments.

OK. Now I am interested. I called my sister and she said yes there really is a show called the Rachael Ray Show and never ever call me this early again! Or Else! So I replied to the email address. A few minutes later I decided to call instead.
While I was in the middle of calling, A reply showed up in my inbox:
The segment actually taped already but we basically were doing a fun kids singing Christmas carols segment for our holiday show. Thanks though for getting back to me!
LE SIGH. Stupid email provider. Its the tenth. The first email was sent the 30th and the second was sent on the 3rd of December.
Rainbow Man would have loved to see a clip of himself on TV, and it would have made for an awesome blog post ... oh wait....
