Seeing as we've got confessions and problems and issues springing up in threads all over the shop, I thought it might be interesting to have an open letter thread. Cathartic, perhaps. From your mother ruining your wedding, to your boyfriend who can't stop peeing on the toilet seat, or even that guy on the bus who kept making that annoying noise with his mouth, get it out here.
I'll get the ball rolling.
To my dear darling boyfriend,
Just because you are technically 'clean' when you come out the shower, it doesn't mean that I am okay with using the same towel you've been rubbing all over yourself for a month. I know you have others. I bought you two myself. Drag them out from the murky depths of the laundry basket, wash them and allow me the temporary use of a clean one.
My life is so much better with you in it. Thank you for being my friend. I love you.
Thank You for posting here on something besides the Word Association thread.
I was getting lonely.
Sorry to let you down, but I am me, not who you think I am or who you want me to be. You are you, and I accept that, even the bits I don't really care for, because you are you.
But I won't be taking delivery on your misplaced anger because I refuse to conform to whatever image of me you have in your head. I know you think that's selfish and horrid but I can't worry about that.
I'm enjoying me too much.
Hello!!!! I've missed you so!! I love you all!!! :D
Missed you too. Thank Goddess for facebook during the down time.
Way to be supportive to a beaten down young man. Next time you're down and out I hope someone kicks you in the balls. And next time you talk to me like I'm a child, maybe I'll kick you in the balls. Having sympathy for someone else is not a weakness and I didn't ask for your two cents worth in the first place. You are a mean old man.
Up yours jerkwad,
Hehe! Thank Goddess indeed. Now I can bug you here too! ;)
PS. Sympathy isn't a weakness.
I will send you another card with the little round things in. Sorry I forgot.
You are a lying sleaze. Where is my email/fan letter/whatever?
Me a lying sleaze?? Ouch. I sent an email, silly goose. Shall I resend it?
Yes sir, please sir...I never got it. Make sure you send it to "yahoo.co.uk" because if you send it to "yahoo.com" it won't get here.
It's been a while. I missed you guys. Also how do I view most recent posts first instead of having to click ALL THE WAY TO THE GD END?
ponycakes! So good to see you back : )
Also, NO WAY TO SEE RECENT POSTS FIRST. Yet. They're working on it etc blah blah...
Lovely picture of your rattie friends!
I sent you a friend request on facebook, but forgot to send a message to let you know it's me. :-P I'm Amy Stephens.
I don't know what you've been eating lately that's making your poo so toxic, but please stop eating it. Or toilet train yourself. Or both.
Is that you with the Axis of Awesome guys?
Got it, accepted it!
You are the best.
Dear Cedar Market,
Thanks so much for making the best tabouli around....almost no parsley stems at all!
C'mon, you haven't shown up in over a month, don't act all miffed when I cancel your class. You didn't want it when it was there. You're almost 40, it'd be real nice if you grew up someday.
I can't believe you sat there and calmly told me you cheated on the exam! Am I supposed to be impressed? You are so going to fail--do you think your profs don't know the difference between your work and something you got off the Net?
I will help you but I am not going to do your work for you, so take that pseudo-helpless look off your face and get to it. If you ever finish your degree, I pity your students in the future. And anyone who has to work with you.
Dude, you rock.
Yep! I went to see them about a month ago and they stayed afterwards for autographs and photos with the audience. They seem like truly nice guys. I'm going to Sydney next month to see the preview for their Edinburgh Fringe show. Can't wait!
I don't see a way to PM you, so I'll say it here. THANK YOU for the chipotle powder. It really made the lime pickle wonderful, and this way the 2 different pickles are two different colours--lime is yellowish green, and lemon is red (from paprika and red chili). I owe you huge hugs. And that stuff will be even better in 2 weeks time. I can hardly wait. The only thing that keeps me from putting it away now is knowing how much better it will be with just a little more sun time!
Love love love,
yo yabbit, up on the upper right of the site, there's a tab for "messages." go there (to your inbox), where you can write PMs, to multiple recipients. hooray!
Oh, okay...I didn't figure that out by myself. I just saw "Inbox" and never thought to click on it. I'm a tecno toddler.
I did send SV a message. Thanks for the help.
24 sleepless hours and counting...
Still finding my way arround the new format. Life is crazy and I am not on the computer much so it is a slow learning curve right now. Waves to everyone! Also, it seems a bit slow to move between pages so I am getting frustrated easy. :(
