But what I got today made me write a blog post. I did send that one too but without any catty design. It was, in fact, I must admit, a moment of edification. Some friends did reply. Here are some of the responses:

And most importantly, it became alive because we shared it among ourselves. By the way my orkut "Today's Fortune" read:
