From: Nicola Griffith (email@example.com)
Hello this is just a little note to say we share the same name! Yes my name happens to be Nicola Griffith as well. I hope to find out more about you so until then this is Nicola Griffith saying hello Nicola Griffith.
Okay, I did a search. The only other ‘Nicola Griffith’ I could find was a pony-riding, tennis-playing schoolgirl. Is that you? Oh, wait, there’s a ‘bubblegum freak’ profile on Yahoo, someone who works at the makeup counter of Bloomingdale’s. You? No?
I could spend time digging deeper but, well, you haven’t asked me anything interesting, and given that I had to wade through nearly three hundred spam messages to get to this perhaps you’ll understand my impatience.
