Thank you, Microsoft

When I did my blog reading this afternoon, I noticed the normal flurry of "I'm a MVP!" posts that happen on the first day of each quarter. I checked my email, and there was nothing. Oh, well! Maybe next quarter.

Then, a bit later, I returned to my email. On a hunch, I checked the Spam folder and there staring back at me was a 4-hour old message from "support" with the subject line:

"[MVP] Congratulations! You have received the Microsoft MVP Award"

Thank you, Microsoft! I'm truly honored! I look forward to meeting my MVP lead, Steve Dybing, and my fellow SQL Server MVPs.

And Google, we need to have a talk about this little prank that you played on me. Please don't hide my important emails in the Spam folder, mmmmkay?
