Hello all! Okay, so it's come to my attention that a few people that I sent the email too aren't going to forward it on. Fair enough; I had a hard enough time thinking of a recipe myself! *g* But I'd appreciate if you'd told me, because the person who sent it to me was really looking forward to getting some recipes.

[livejournal.com profile] rosenchanted told me that she couldn't think of any, so I forwarded a recipe of my own, and that's what I intend to do if others can't, because as I said, [livejournal.com profile] truehobbit was looking forward to the recipes.

Now I know that quite a few people (myself included!) delete chain letters out of hand, but this one did say if you couldn't take part, let the person who sent it know. After all, this isn't exactly a "sent it to 10 people and you will have luck for 10 years" kind of email! *g*

Anyway, I just wanted to point out that if anyone can't send it on, for whatever reason, could you let me know? :)

I'll be forwarding it on, just haven't had a chance to get a recipe typed up, and been really busy with coursework. I'll get it done tonight though :)

Lol! No rush! I didn't mean to pester people about, just to let everyone know that I'd send on a recipe if they couldn't. :)

How's your coursework going?

It's going well. Just working on my second graded assignment which is due on Friday! I've got a great idea which I can picture easily in my head, but the words are refusing to be written. So frustrating, but I'm forcing myself to write.

Yeah, I know the feeling. I remember what it was like when I was at school. But I did find that when I was under pressure and had to come up with something, it all came together. Of course, that's no consolation whilst you're panicking! *g*

That's sweet of you, heliona! *hugses*
Although the main person to lose from people not playing is you. ;)

I think it's not to be expected that everybody has the wish/time/ability to take part, so I'm not really counting on getting a hundred recipes. ;)

But I think the reason that the mail asks the recipient to let the sender know if they aren't playing is because then the sender can pick someone else, because *you* will also end up without getting recipes sent to you if the mail doesn't get multiplied.

Not sure if I can explain it (I think it would need a chart to demonstrate it) - but I think this is a kind of chain that re-starts with each two people, rather than being carried on and on.

So, if your contacts don't respond, that's ten recipes less for me, which is a pity but no big deal - but if they don't forward to ten others each, that's hardly any chance for recipes for you at all. You'll be getting the recipes from the people your friends forward the mail to, so... :)

Sorry my adding you ended up such a bother - I just thought as a single household, you'd like a hundred easy recipes, too. :D

Forgot to add, I think it's awesome you're trying so hard to catch people's attention - I'm not even sure more than two or three of my contacts responded at all. :D
As you say, some just delete chain mail, and I suspect that pretty often the mail program does it for them by not even delivering mails sent to multiple addresses.

Really? Hmm, I wonder if I should check if some of my email accounts are doing that?

As for the getting attention, well, I just think that recipes are much more interesting than: pass it on to 10 people and you'll get luck for 10 years etc. *g*

Lol! Yes, I see what you mean. :) Oh well. *g* I don't really have that many friends that cook. *g* Never mind. (You can always forward some recipes to me that you get. ;) )

I did read it and I didn't see that bit, if it had it - I must have missed it. I'm sure I'd've let you know if I'd seen it, so sorry about that.

That's no problem. :) I'm going to pick through my recipe book to find some interesting recipes to forward. I think I might make something myself as well. *g*

it wasn't so much that I couldn't think of any (i have recipe books coming out of my ears), i just don't do cooking. You know this. Did you see my 'i almost blew up the kitchen' post the other week? I mean, seriously, I almost blew up the microwave and this is not the first time! :p

Also, I don't really do chain main, regardless of content.

Oh yes, I'd forgotten about the toaster bit! *g* Of course, you did make chicken chow mein when I came round to visit. And you do bake on occasion. *g* I suppose you'll have to find yourself a man who can cook! ;)

Also, I don't really do chain main, regardless of content.

I don't normally, either, but I thought this might be interesting. Of course, since at least half the people I've sent it to aren't going to do it, and half the people that [livejournal.com profile] eretria sent hers to aren't doing it, I won't be getting many recipes. *g* Oh well! *g*
