In case none of you are aware, let me warn you that opening an eFax account is similar to being part of the mob, in that once you’re in, you’re in for life. eFax, if you don’t know anything about them, has a cool little service wherein you are assigned a fax number, and when someone faxes something to that number, it arrives as an email attachment.

Pretty cool, right? Even cooler is the service where you can send something to eFax via email, and they FAX it for you! This additional service originally cost something like $5 a month, and like a dumbass I signed up. When they raised the charge to $9.95 a month, I cancelled the account.

The third time I cancelled the same account, it actually got cancelled. Apparently, they really valued me as a customer, or something.

Every month since then, I’ve received an eFax email telling me of all the thrills and chills of being an eFax member. As if I were still an eFax member.

Maybe changing my email address would get rid of them? I’m afraid, though, that like Fingerhut, they’ll be following me from email to email and house to house for the rest of my life.

Fingerhut’s scarier than the student loan people. I’ve changed my name twice and moved three times since I’ve ordered anything from them, and somehow they still track me down and send their big, thick, fancy catalogs to me with which to tempt me.

I’ve managed to stay strong. For the most part, anyway.

Gervase was on As the World Turns today. I didn’t really watch it (I’m a one-woman soap opera one-soap opera woman these days), but it appears he was a bad guy. How freakin’ weird is it, to see the Survivors all over the place still? Colleen’s in the new Rob Schneider movie, Gervase and Sean are hitting the soaps, and Kelly’s got some kind of adventure show going on. I watched E!’s Survivor: The True Hollywood Story (which was on Wednesday and I had to tape) over the weekend. Not all the Survivors were featured, but boy howdy didn’t Jenna get defensive when they asked if her fifteen minutes were up. "Fifteen minutes is all in your head!" she huffed.

Suuuuuure it is, Jenna. Hear that? The clock’s a-tickin’…

I wonder if the casts of Survivor 2, 3, etc. will have the staying power of the original cast. Somehow I doubt it – I mean, who the hell even remembers who was on Real World Seattle?

That was a rhetorical question.
