This is an authentic email I received for New Year 2014

Attached files:
Je vous souhaite une année 2014 pleine d'amour, de ciel bleu, de bonnes nouvelles, d'inattendus, de places de parking libres, de glace à la vanille aux noix de macadamia,
de rêves, de sensations fortes, de grasses matinées, de bonnes intentions de gadgets de levers de soleil, d'inconnus qui vous veulent du bien,
de petits riens, de chaussettes propres, de patience, d'after eight, de clins d'œil, de bons sentiments, de requins sans dents et ... de jours heureux
