Buyer Beware: There’s a Spamming Devil Out There!

Devil whispering in the antichrist's ear
Deeds of the Antichrist by Luca Signorelli;  1501

Fascinating.

I was just going through all of the spam that has been swept away from my blog, site unseen and came across a “comment” that WordPress recognized as spam and spirited away on my behalf. The sender spoke about a “personal experience” and finding a spell caster to resolve the issues. I found it funny. I have friends who are “witches”. I don’t ask much. I figure it is more of a deviation of druids or something, you know nature and such, not the devil.  I don’t figure it’s my job to save them from themselves. I don’t think they need saving.  We all worship and value different things. It is my belief that God loves us so much He gave us freedom of choice and we should respect the choices others make for their own lives. I also believe that God knows everything we will choose, every path we will take because He is ever present… past, present and future.  He loves me. He loves you. He’s got us covered.

But this particular comment felt different than how my friends talk.  It felt thick and deceptive, it felt like a wolf cloaked in sheepskin.  It intrigued me. I read it and now I’m sharing my thoughts with you.

Maybe I have changed, I don’t know. I know that everytime I read in the comment about my so-called need for a spell caster I thought to myself, BUT GOD TAKES CARE OF ME. I DON’T NEED MAGIC. I DON’T NEED TO MANIPULATE THE UNIVERSE OR INVITE EVIL TO CROSS MY DOORSTEP.  I continued to read the entire post. I noticed that despite the language appearing to be friendly and informative and hiding it’s true purpose that the writer, claiming to be without affiliation had a login name that included the 666. I thought that was funny too. Then at the end, just above the how to contact this “spell caster” she leaves the following list of things this man, this doctor, this spell caster can remedy.

Contact him for the following:

(1)If you want your ex back.
(2)If you always have bad dreams.
(3)You want to be promoted in your office.
(4)You want women/men to run after you.
(5)If you want a child.
(6)You want to be rich.
(7)You want to tie your husband/wife to be yours forever.
(8)If you need financial assistance.
(9)Herbal care
10)Help bringing people out of prison
11)HIV/AIDS and cancer cure.
12)Revenge and death spell.
13)Lottery winning spell.
14)Money spell.

Contact him today on:

Again, I just had to laugh… these are selfish desires.  One thing I am not, is selfish. Yes, I am a sinner.  But they certainly knocked on the wrong blog’s door. To conclude:

Buyer Beware:  The Devil is spamming for souls!  Personally, I think I’ll stick with God and my Savior, Jesus Christ. They have always done right by me, even when I didn’t necessary like it.  Thanks but no thanks.

Get Behind me, Satan!

Lions and Tigers and Bears… Oh My!

Lions and Tigers and Bears... It's Halloween! |Memee's Musings

Tomorrow is the big day we’ve all been leading up to, the most playful of all American holidays: Halloween! Did you carve your pumpkins and put them outside your door? If yes, did you take a picture and submit it to social media? And if yes, did you post a link to it on Memee’s Doorstep Pumpkin Challenge and/or tag it #DoorstepPumpkinChallenge? If no, well, there’s no time like the present because you are almost out of time! Weren’t you listening? Halloween is less than a day away! BTW, even I was able to carve my pumpkin despite the broken elbow. It turns out those silly 99-cent pumpkin carving tools really, really work!

Do you have a costume for each of your children… the human and furry ones? How about yourself? Creating a costume and dressing up is at least half of the fun. If you’re a last minute costume preparer, make time to do it today! I’d love to see my minions all dressed up in my comment section. Show me your alter egos! And, don’t worry, if you don’t have the funds you may be able to put something together like the best costume I ever saw… White Trash. I was at a Halloween party and she had a dirty white robe and slippers, messy hair (though you could do those vintage pink curlers!), bright pink, smeared lipstick, a lipstick stained (doesn’t have to be the same color, in fact better if it’s not) crunched-up bent and broken cigarette in her hands, some toilet paper dangling from her slipper and white plastic trash bags attached all over her robe. She looked like she’d literally rolled out from behind a dumpster of a 70s trailer park!

Did you buy enough candy? That’s important. You don’t want to be the one on your block with the T-P’d lawn in the morning. It’s a time-consuming clean up.

I am excited about the trick-or-treaters coming. This is the first year in 19 years I have lived in a neighborhood where I expect to see children, pets, and parents prowling the streets. I can hardly wait for tomorrow night!

Oh, and lastly, after all the spooky chaos of the evening don’t forget to set your clock back an hour! November 1st will be a whole new time zone!

Be safe, have fun, and watch out for those zombies… even the smallest ones can convert you!

She Knocked Three Times (a fairytale)

She Knocked Three Times | Memee's Musings
Magic Brew by Loopy Dave

It was a Wednesday, the day I usually set aside for laundry. I had just finished steeping my tea and sat down to go over my assignment list for the upcoming week. With the whirling noise of the washer on spin cycle soothing my senses and the wafting smell of peppermint rising from my teacup I began to unwind and relax. I sighed a long sigh of comfort in knowing that all was as it should be when suddenly I heard three loud thumps coming from the laundry room.

I had not remembered putting shoes in the dryer though I suppose it was entirely possible as I do tend to daydream while sorting the dirty clothes and loading the washer. I got up and went to the laundry room feeling annoyed at myself for not inserting the shoe rack into the dryer. As I approached the room I realized the banging had stopped, but how could that be?
