So if you're looking to write a book, I had an idea...

Lightbulb Lightbulb, Beaming Bright

My brother (his writing credits include Herbalife sales pitches on Facebook) emailed this to my little sister:

So if you're looking to write a book I had an idea..Wealthy bored person with a little wild streak notices a ridiculous number of spam emails from a single spammer with the same subject line in the same day. Starts to ask around cyber friends how can I find out who this person is for a little retribution...starts to imagine they're a lone ranger hero of sorts and what could they do to the spammer that would panic or scare others in that field...hires some cyber geeks anonymously to trace the source...prove it is them...then hires a hitman of sorts to chop off their pointer fingers as a warning (or you can pick something equally painful) maybe drive spikes through hands and keyboard into their desk? Or something related to the subject line of the spam email (a la movie Seven)... Anyhow that should get the wheels spinning for you.  Let me know if you'd write it and want to chat or I might have someone else take a look. Gotta give these ideas away so I'm not distracted by one other thing. ..

!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

On the random chance that my brother ever finds my blog and finds these entries about him less than flattering -- but 100% true -- I am wondering if he could sue me for libel?  Even if I used his own words to describe him?!??!?!?!

No…he would not sue…he'd cut your fingers off! LOL. Scary.

OMG. This is total paydirt. TOTAL. I love it, though. I have to give your brother some credit, though because he has some crazy, spectacular ideas... albeit a little... off...

Much Love,
Trissta

Do any of your family know you have a blog? What about friends or boyfriend? I'd love to be anonymous!
