The Finch Formerly Known As Gold

9 September 2005

Just one of the girls

W — the magazine, not the President — sent me this lovely invitation yesterday:

You are among a very small group of women invited to receive our exclusive W BAG — ABSOLUTELY FREE — along with 12 issues of W for just $1 each.

Two things occur to me:

  1. Were I among a very small group of women right now, I wouldn't have time (and, I hope, the inclination) to type;

  2. Harper's Bazaar must be renting the subscriber list again.

Of course, if I turn down this invitation, I won't be the "first to know where to buy jewelry from the designer who created Madonna's wedding ring," but I think I can survive a trauma of that magnitude.

I'm also among that very small group! But I am also already a subscriber. I love W-- mainly because I find it silly and enjoy laughing at it.

If you are feeling otherwise slighted, I'd be honored to forward to you (free of charge, even) the innumerable "make your breasts larger" pill emails I receive (and have no more use for than you do).

This would, um, sort of conflict with other spam I receive.

Oh, I get plenty of -those-, as well. They just weren't in the same "vein", if you will, as the other feminine offers you've received.....
