Encrypt web-based email with Mailvelope. It’s pretty solid. It’s compatible with your standard PGP or GPG keys (you can import them easily). Just make sure you type your messages in the secondary, pop-up window not in the default compose box, because that box gets automatically saved and copied to drafts, and it’s not encrypted. You should get in the habit of using a notepad to compose your messages anyway.
Warning, the #NSA kills a kitten for every encrypted message you send.
p.s. This message is signed by me, which you can verify if you have my public key:

Come and join us Sunday, April 13 at the Barnes & Noble at The Grove in Los Angeles as we reinvent the art of sharing. The public wants to consume culture, and we aim to feed it to ‘em! Here’s the story (no pun intended):
At 1pm we’ll wander casually into B&N, and pick out a book of our own choosing – the Bible, bodice-rippers, C++ programming, French poetry, whatever floats one’s boat. At 1:10, the public readings shall begin, as we all walk the store sharing aloud passages from our chosen books. The reading shall continue until 1:25, or until security throws us out.
EXTRA CREDIT! Participants are encouraged to create at least three bookmarks bearing a special message to consumers to place into random books around the store before the reading begins. Easily done while browsing for your favorite title to titillate the public with!
Please join us afterwards at the Buzz coffee shop 7623 Beverly Blvd, LA 90036 (at the corners of Beverly Blvd and The Grove Dr.).
GETTING THERE: Parking at The Grove is terrible and costs $$. By public transport, you can take the Metro to the Hollywood and Highland station, then hop on the 217 bus at the northwest corner of Hollywood and Highland Blvds (westbound). Get off at Fairfax and 3th St. The Grove is behind the Farmer’s Market. Or you can find your own route at the handy Los Angeles Metro Authority site: www.metro.net/default.asp

Isn’t that a song? “Come on! Coagulation time, come on!”
Ok, so I live in LA. And LA is basically synonymous with Hollywood to most of the people in the world. Right now a lot of Hollywood, specifically the TV industry, is frozen because the Writer’s Guild is on strike. What this means is no new TV sitcoms and dramas, more repeats and more Reality TV. Got it? So crappy TV gets even crappier. It really doesn’t matter much to me, because pretty much all good TV is found on Cable, and Cable TV doesn’t seem to be effected by the Writer’s Guild. I really don’t know. I really don’t care. Personally I will never cross picket lines because I believe what strikes stand for. I don’t care for unions, but I do care for workers rights. People need unions, i don’t need unions, but I digress… I have an idea for a prank. We dress up like scabs, carry pads of paper or notebooks, and sit across from the striking writers, and start writing episodes for our favorite TV. Especially the ones we hate. And the hilarity ensues. Yes, this is a bad idea. But bad ideas tend to be the best.
According to Christian Mythology, Jesus of Nazareth turned water into wine. I don’t see how his contribution to Israel’s (or Lebanon’s*) alcoholism can be considered a miracle. But non-the-less, the idea of instant alcohol sounds like a great idea to me. I don’t know about him being a messiah, or the ‘son of god’ for that matter. But he’s a saint in my eyes. Too bad his followers are a bunch of idiots.
In the eyes of a Pastafarian, we would be considered Spagnostics. This is because they feel we don’t believe in their Spagedeity, the Flying Spaghetti Monster (FSM). It’s not a matter of belief, as it is one of denial or shruggery. We all know the true God is ERIS. Recognizing Eris as our patron diety does, on the contrary, awknowledge that there are other deities, therefore the Spaghetti Flying Monster is acceptable as being part of a long line of gods. Unfortunately, for followers of FSM, the FSM is a false god. Nowhere in world history is the FSM mentioned. The Pastafarian will argue that it His intent, to be missing from History, it’s His sense of humor. If anything I would like to declare FSM as Brigiadier Saint(1) in the POEE tradition of the Discordian Society.
