But it is nice, and I realize that I haven't been totally unproductive. I've got all my shopping done for tomorrow's meal, Alice is happily at the spa getting a makeover, the house is relatively clean, and I'm slowly working through updating some tedious financial records and cleaning up some other computer files.
Magnum and Meego both have the whole week off too. A while ago, I mentioned to Magnum about goodreads, a site I use to hopefully find books I'd be interested in reading. In fact, a few of *you* are friends of mine over there :).
So yesterday, I decided to send him the link. I logged in to my account and did the "add friends" bit to get him set up. Doing that, goodreads went through my e-mail contacts and pulled up an easy-to-invite-a-friend screen. Included in that screen were people in my e-mail contacts who were already members of goodreads, and it AUTOMATICALLY sends them a friend request UNLESS I TELL IT NOT TO.
So annoying! Of course, I realized that too late. It didn't even offer up a "confirm", just sent out the requests. I recognized one victim as a woman in my P.E.O. chapter, but the others? Heck if I know.
There weren't that many, at least. But, you know how you end up with contacts just from any old person that sends you an e-mail? I think I inadvertently sent goodreads friend requests to the receptionist at the orthodontist and an administrator at the tutor service.
I was able to cancel the requests, but the victims were probably notified before I cancelled. So they likely got an e-mail: "connect with Abby on Goodreads!", only to follow the link and nobody's there. Ding dong dash.
Oh well, this time of year as with any, there are worse mistakes to be made.
