Oh, I am sick. No need for a pity party; I just need rest. I've been drinking "like a fish," as my old doctor used to say, and sleeping like a log. But I'd have to say that the worst is probably past (famous last words, I know.)

Anyway, that second issue with my grades I mentioned last time is now resolved. Hurray!

And I just got my first Nigerian email "419" scam. How exciting.
Dear Sir/Madam,
You may be surprised to receive this letter from me, Since you do not know me personally "My Name is Niko Wanko" The purpose of my introduction is that" Before the death of my father, he had taken me to Johannesburg to deposit the sum of US25 million (Twenty Five Million United States dollars),in one of the private security company, as he fore saw the
looming danger in Zimbabwe this money was deposited in Two boxes as gem stones to avoid much demurrage from security company.
This amount was meant for the purchase of new machines and chemicals for the Farms and establishment of new farms in Swaziland.
This land problem came when Zimbabwean President Mr .Robert Mugabe introduced a new Land Act Reform wholly affecting the rich white farmers and some few black Farmers and this resulted to the killing and mob action by Zimbabwean war>veterans and some lunatics in the society. In fact a lot of people were killed Because of this Land reform Act for which my father Mr"Wanko Joseph was one of the victims.
It is against this background that, I and my family fled Zimbabwe for fear of our lives and I currently staying in the Netherlands in a village called Zealand, where my family are seeking political asylum and more so I have decided to transfer my father's money to a more reliable foreign account. As the eldest son of my father, I am saddled with the responsibility of seeking a genuine foreign account where this money could be transferred without the knowledge of my government who are bent on taking everything we have got.
The South African government seems to be playing along with them. I am faced with the dilemma of moving this amount of money out of South Africa for fear of going through the same experience in future, both countries have similar political history. As a business man, I am seeking for a partner who I have to entrust my future and that of my family in his hands, I must let you know that this transaction is risk free.
If you accept to assist me and my family, all I want you to do for me, is to make an arrangements with the security company to clear the consignment(funds) from their affiliate office here in the Netherlands as I have already given directives for the consignment to be brought to the Netherlands from South Africa .But before then all modalities will have to
be put in place like change of ownership to the consignment and more importantly this money I intend to use for investment. I have two options for you"
Firstly you can choose to have certain percentage of the money for nominating your account for this transaction. Or you can go into Partnership with me for the proper profitable investment of the money in your country. Whichever the option you want, feel free to notify me.
If you do not prefer a partnership I am willing to give you 10% of the money while 5% will be set aside to incure any expencies used during this transaction and the remaining 85% will be for my investment in your country. Contact me with the above via e-mail or tel:0031-618-826-162 while I implore you to maintain the absolute secrecy required in this transaction.
Thanks, And God Bless
Niko Wanko.

Yes, "Niko," God Bless.
