Reader E-Mail

E-mailFor tonight’s post I thought I’d share with you a strange e-mail that I received the other night. What made it strange was that it was sent to one of the many e-mail addresses I’ve associated with this blog, but since I’ve been finally able to get an e-mail address with my domain, I haven’t used that address and as far as I know it’s not even mentioned anywhere.

Hi,
What happens if you dont eat for a month? I don`t know if you are the right person to ask, but any advice/pointers you might have would be very much appreciated. Please point me in the right direction.

Thankyou,
Susan

And it would just be stupid anyhow.

Hope that helped.
