No Happiness Here

I always get a kick out of certain soap operas. My mum loves to watch Young and the Restless and Bold and the Beautiful. I will admit that on occasion, I will walk by the television when these shows are on and be captivated by what's happening on the screen. What I really enjoy is the "over-the-top" dialogue.

Case in point: On BnB, Nick found out that his wife, Brooke, has been fooling around with her ex-husband (and Nick's step-brother), Ridge. Driven by grief, Nick escapes to his houseboat where he turns to alcohol as a way of forgetting his misery. He is then confronted by Brooke's twenty-something daughter, Bridget. The following conversation takes place:

Nick: I'm feeling a lot of hate right now.

Bridget: Don't! It's poison for your soul.

Nick: In that case, either my soul has been poisoned OR CLEANSED!
(Throws glass against the wall, causing it to smash into a million little pieces)

A little more banter and Nick and Bridget begin to make love as the show ends.

On to more important matters. Someone should know the answer to this.

I sent an e-mail to a representative at a marketing company. I then received an "out of office automatic reply." Now, when you get a message like this, does it mean that your message will still be in your recipient's inbox when they return to the office; or, was the message deleted and therefore, I have to send the e-mail again.

No, it's gone forever, lost to the ether that is the internet (or nets, depending on whom you ask). You should send it at least eleventy-billion more times to be safe. Burning the building down doesn't hurt either... well, unless you're in the building at the time... I guess...
