    What'd you get as your very first e-mail of the New Year?

    Mine was a spam e-mail from Amazon about "Top 10 Year-End Deals in Electronics".

    Followed by Pizza Hut pushing some kind of new pizza.

    Still haven't heard from anybody I really know yet, but the year is young. :D

    The first email that I received was at 1:03 am from Sears telling me about the New Years Day sale. Glad they said something at 1:03 this morning or I would have missed it... :eek:

    Mine had the following subject line:
    Seems like it should be a question, but maybe it's the e-mail's author who is disappointed.

    Looks like your News Years' Resolution is decided already :D

    Mine was an update from ModMyi I think. Either that or a Starbucks special coupon thingie. I forget. I deleted both without remembering which was first.

    Email from iTunes saying I owe them £1.89:eek: (What a way to start the new year being told I owe money to someone).

    Edit: My bad it was iTunes Germany saying that I had to confirm my German iTunes Account :D then came the one saying I owe £1.89
