Casting a Wide Net

Today's doctor visit went better (I'm still on the slow boat, but I have 9 or 10 teeny egglets growing and my estrogen level is up. I feel good enough to share the following, non-fertility-related item.

Initially I thought this was just run-of-the-mill spam, but now I see it is more than that. It is spam, in that they guy found me by googling something like "nonlinear analysis" but as far as I can tell it is not a come on to get my money. My ideas, but not my money.

Sadly, I am not that kind of nonlinear girl. Then again, this looks right up Chris' alley.


  1. Go, egglets, go!

    I've actually been to Chania. It's beautiful.

  2. Yes, and if he trip to Crete?

    I'm glad things were better at the most recent appt.

  3. Glad to hear that the eggs are developing nicely.

    And that email? Hysterical! Thank you for my morning laugh.

  4. May your ovaries look like soccor balls soon. : ) I remember this stage....I always thought my ovaries looked like soccor balls......and I remember how heavy they felt too.....I wish you the best and hope you get lots of viable eggs. : ) Hang in there!

  5. please go to the seminar--the email was funny, just think of the blogfodder at the seminar.

    good luck to the egglets...

  6. 1-15 are all chaotic to me.

    What language is that all in?

    Surely the most peculiar spam ever! Maybe you should just make something up, submit it and see what happens? "Emergent behaviour in the randomization of weekly words and images" perhaps?

  8. Wishing you at 2008 full of Chaotic Stimulation in lieu of their simulation.
