How do I go about contacting someone who has apparently confused my email address with her own?

Someone out there in internet-land with a first initial & last name somewhat similar to my own is apparently operating under the mistaken presumption that my gmail address is hers. I'm starting to get regular emails from her magazine subscriptions, her car dealership's service desk, etc. and I'd like it all to stop. I'd email her about the problem except, well, like her, I don't know her email address. A google search has failed to come up with anything promising. What are my options here? Have you had a similar situation that you resolved, and if so, how did you do it? [more inside]

And the dreams go on and on and on

I have telescopic dreams once in a while - dreaming something only to realise that I'm dreaming, "wake up" in another dream, then sometimes switching back to the first dream or "waking up" to another dream entirely. They freak me out quite a bit as I'm never quite sure if or when I'm really awake. Why do these dreams happen? Is anything the matter? [more inside]
