Thats funny they're headed my way too. These things always crack me up. That these folks are coming here for a seminar or whatever. Seminar with who? The cows? horses? chickens?
Kills me every time. I would once like to catch them at their game. Just not sure how to do it. *goes to ponder*

and just for props for the aspirings, if you have online reservations you need not even wonder if any of these emails are for real. Your rates, with tax, and the ability to book the rooms are all right there.

Here is another perfect example. Just arrived this morning. If you look closely many of them are not even addressed to you. No to address, just a bogus from address.
Plus who honeymoons with other couples? Seriously?!

I'm heart broken. I didn't get one of those e-mails today. They must not want to stay with me because you know those Greek priests, they don't have any dietary restrictions!

No way, the email addresses for the users of this site are not shared with anyone for any reason other than in compliance with a search warrant.

Oh my gosh, yes they DO!!! We have friends who are Greek Orthodox... they have some kind of fast more than half of the days of the year. Most Wednesdays and Fridays they can't have meat. Then there's two big fasts each year where they're basically vegan, no dairy or meat at all. One is lent, but theirs is extra long, and I forget when the other one is.
So you get six newly ordained (i.e., extra careful to do it all perfectly) priests who can't eat anything but veggies for breakfast!
=)
Kk.
