What kind of crazy mailing list am I on?
Hispanic Dating. Meet Your Hispanic Match. Don't be alone on Valentines (their punctuation, not mine) Day. Lots of Hispanic singles.
I am reviewing all the things I have purchased in the past month (or year, I don't know) that might have landed me on the "Hispanic Singles" demographic mailing list. I am neither Hispanic nor single (not that there's anything wrong with either one of those things. I just happen to be "non-Hispanic" white and married.)
Oh. My. God. I think I just got it - for my qualitative research class, we have to read this book (one of four, just for this class, I might add. Hey, grad school is hard. This is actually a joke. That is a secret - or maybe not so secret - pet peeve of mine. I cannot stand grad students who actually sound surprised and whine about how hard grad school is. My totally uneducated-sounding response is typically, "Duh.") called Subtractive Schooling: U.S.-Mexican Youth and the Politics of Caring. And you know what? I bought it from amazon.com!!!! Those bastards over at Amazon are selling my e-mail address (and now you're thinking "Duh.") and my book purchases to everybody and their brother. Or everybody and el hermano, apparently. Who knew?
Adios, mi amigos!
