Let's Be Direct

Just before 10 this morning I received a text message from piton@rotpaygol.ga. As if that wasn't unrecognizable enough, this was the message:

(final St3p)' B2go.li/-s9MZi'BeONroad

Then, a little over an hour later my phone rang. It was a local number so I answered. A tremulous sounding elderly feminine voice asked if I was Anya. I said, no, you have the wrong number. She apologized. When the Mercury retrograde ends around 4:30 this afternoon I expect all of this will make sense.

I just got one too. Deleted it, but the contents were much of the same. No phone call yet, received the text at 2:05 PM EST. I'm in NJ, by the way.

Somehow I'm relieved that others get this stuff, too. Being "special" isn't always what you might expect. :-)

Yup, just got one too. That said "R U personable" with a link. Didn't click the link and deleted. Nj resident as well.

Just received one from saju@rotpaygol.ga .ga is a domain for Gabon. It reads, "Sav3 The FUture" with a link LeL.lu/q and farbutn3ar.

Don't they have goats to tend to or something?

Bellona of Avalon said...

I say, let's send them some dancing, pajama-wearing goats to keep them from proliferating spam!

Thomas J. Kallenbach, P.E. said...

It's always the same dilemma...what do you get for a swinging Gabonese spamming goat herder who has everything?

Bellona of Avalon said...

Oh, Thomas, I like how your brain works.

I swear I never gave my number to a swinging Gabonese spamming goat herder.

Thomas J. Kallenbach, P.E. said...

Technically, I don't think I gave my number out either...but there was this out of the way little pub in Ogooué-Ivindo. And I thought that what happens in Ogooué-Ivindo, stays in Ogooué-Ivindo.

Life can deal some harsh lessons. It's all fun and games til a voodoo queen walks into an out of the way little pub in Ogooué-Ivindo.

I don't know what it all means but I do know if you google rotpaygol.ga the only pictures or references direct to your blog.

My mom received the following text yesterday, Thursday June 11, 2015 at 3:42 pm.:

(Sav3 The FUture)
willingnessSCS
'LeL.lu/q'

I googled it, like everyone else...what is interesting is that one result referenced the Bible...https://books.google.com/books?id=Pd5UAAAAcAAJ&pg=PA764&lpg=PA764&dq=what+is+LeL.lu/q&source=bl&ots=JCY4jXIU0A&sig=SWI2UVrDUcERRkWRyqAL8DG_WTs&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0CB0Q6AEwADgKahUKEwjbuZawwInGAhUEfJIKHTluAE8#v=onepage&q=what%20is%20LeL.lu%2Fq&f=false

I don't know what to make of it!

Had to join the Par-tay, being an ex-goat herding Gabonese, from Ogooué-Ivindo with voodoo tendencies. Mine read "Karissa@rotpaygol.ga (Yr Evolution) FascinatingSt3p 'Lel.lu/q' " hmmmm, the only thing I can think is Youtube naybe? Since I lied about being Gabonese and all. But hey, got directed to this cool place, so all is not lost. PS PacNW (very N)

Bellona of Avalon said...

I have never received so many comments on a blog post! This has been fun, thanks to all who chimed in!

Now we know who has been sending the texts. Bet we start seeing ads pretty soon too;)

Bellona of Avalon said...

Curse you, Thomas J. Kallenbach!

As long as it's fess-up time, I was the voodoo gypsy queen at that little pub in Ogooué-Ivindo! Bwahahahahaha!

Generally people change their phone number after such an escapade. ;-)

It was fun, we should do it again sometime. But in a cleaner bar with better food. And indoor plumbing.
