Dear Cousin Wesley's Lawyer,

Please do your best to keep Wesley out of jail for the holidays, even though he's a total idiot and completely deserves incarceration. Maybe you and the D.A. can work out some kind of "house arrest" thing? It's not like he's going anywhere, he doesn't have a job.

Sincerely,

Wesley's Cousin

Dear Wesley,

You're an idiot. Why would you pull something like this when your father is in the hospital? I'm just glad you don't have access to weapons.

--Your Cousin

P.S. Listen to your lawyer!

Dear Seaboe:

I am so very, very sorry for the inadvertent "W." I would never intend saddling you with that letter.

Sigh. What can I say? My meds are doing odd, odd things with my brain today. Miss one dose, and things go wacky.

I hope this will not dissuade any further contributions to my found electronic poetry cause!

I second that.

If it is any comfort, the closest my feline housemate has come to ever fixing me a meal was depositing a headless snake at the foot of my bed one morning! [Eek!]

I never said I would be cooking dinner, just that I fear I will be expected to. I kinda hope I'm right, because I would love a good opportunity to let them have it [and by "it" I don't mean dinner!].

Describing a sequence of events that actually happened is history, not criticism.

If criticism happens it just once again demonstrates that opening up one's life also means inviting all kinds of commentary. People also have long memories and it may come up again and again. It's the risk we all take when we choose to post and sometimes we must suffer the consequences. It's like those email forwards we complain about and try to put a end to: Once you release it to the wild you might never be able to stop it and it might even be harmful. If people can't handle that they need to consider very carefully how they will proceed.

Dear snopesters using Banner:

Your posts made me laugh-- I used to work at a large University and we celebrated when we switched to the Banner system. Wait, scratch that-- after a painful period of a few months working out the kinks, we celebrated. Before Banner, it would take somewhere between 4 weeks and 4 months to get reimbursements. With Banner, it was 3-4 weeks without fail, and we were happy to have it. Before Banner, I used to keep a running tally and daily average of what the University owed me-- for the first six months of 2004 the average was $500.

Now I'm happy to be at a small college where there is no "system," my checks are printed out by "people." If I hand my secretary a receipt today, it's fairly likely there will be a check in my mailbox tomorrow. *purr* [Smile]

Dear garden gate,

I am still black and blue (and yellow and red and purple, and I am sure in one place green) due to climbing over you. I hate you. If you ever need oiling ask someone else.

Victoria J


Dear work,

This cannot go on. Mondays may not be nice but they shouldn't make me physically ill because I get so stressed.

Victoria J


Dear Complete Bastard at the train station,

You were going up the wrong side of the stairs. Even if you were not there is no excuse for attempting to physically push me to one side, and when I proved to difficult to push there was even less excuse for kicking my leg out from under me.

I am mostly relieved that you did get away from me. If you hadn't I was so angry I would have hurt you, I wouldn't have guaranteed I wouldn't have hurt you a lot, and wouldn't have been proud of hitting an 18/19 (?) year old.

(I do wish I had made more of a fuss, but when I stood up I was so angry I didn't hurt, and I didn't know that the next day I would have trouble walking. )

Victoria J
P.s. You really shouldn't do things like that. You are barely at the height of my chin, and pretty weedy with it. You are going to get hurt. You're a very brave [Roll Eyes] man who pushed an obviously not very fit woman to the ground - you still only avoided getting hurt because you are slightly faster than me and I was suprised. It isn't going to be long before you push the wrong person around.


Dear Leg,

Stop making a fuss. You were just bruised. There was no reason to stiffen up 24 hours later...

Quit it.

Victoria J


Dear Hairdresser,

I have always wondered why hairdressers show you the back of your head, because previously I have never felt the need to comment on it. You are the first hairdresser not to show me, and I was not pleased to notice the next day (and when I cannot return to you as I don't live in the same city) that you left an odd tuft of hair on one side of my neck.

Also - I sincerely hope your hygene is better between non-related customers. I was somewhat suprised to notice lots of grey hair when you cut my hair, and then realise this was my mothers hair from where you had used the same impliments to cut her hair and not washed them. Eww !

Victoria J


Dear shops,

I am jaded and miserable. Please try harder so I can find something that I can buy the people I still need to shop for for Christmas instead of hating everything I see.

Victoria j


Dear 257 bus,

you are meant to run every 8-10 minutes and you are normally around 10-12 minutes, so WHY did I have to wait for 50 minutes in the freezing cold to get home this evening. (While SEVEN buses went the other way). And why did you then stop just down the road and make everyone get off and wait another 5 minutes for the next bus ?

Victoria J


Dear Universe,

Give me a break. Please.

Dear sis,

The reasons we keep 'bothering' you about the number of children you will be bringing is because we need to know if we need to buy more presents. We have said this every time we called you.

Also, do we need to have special food on hand or not?

Look, just because we call you every two days does not mean we are being pushy. If you show up with 5 instead of the three we are expecting, two of them will not be getting gifts, unless we can be told in advance what kind of gifts to get.

Dear SIL,

The main reason I haven't gone Christmas shopping with you is because I've finished it all. The other reason is because you have a much higher Christmas budget than we do & I have about 30 presents to buy in comparison to your 12. If you wanna drop $90 on a laser tag style game for your brother in law, go ahead. I'm not even spending that much on the Hatchling.

This doesn't make me a bad person, just a broke one.

Dear colleagues,
Okay, I know that looked like a completely superfluous objection today, but trust me, it was necessary. I had to do something to interrupt that line of questioning. Our witness was extremely agitated, and opposing counsel was visibly shaking he was so mad. So yes, I totally knew I was going to lose on that objection, but it did its job. Our witness got back under control, opposing counsel moved on. So, don’t think I’m dumb. I knew what I was doing, really!

Love,
me

When two nice snopesters get together and are happy, it makes me feel happy for them like I feel sad for them when something bad happens. I like to know about the good stuff, too. What's the diff?

Dear self.
You can do this. You can quit smoking. That gunk that still in your lungs that you keep coughing up? That may be an effect of the cold but it damn sure would have gone away a lot quicker had you not been smoking. You should have known better than to even start considering what you saw it did to your mother. No more cigarettes. No more nicotine. You're through with this crap. You're through with freezing your ass off and getting sick from standing outside smoking. You can make it a lousy 3 days. You are stronger than some stupid chemical. You're through with being broke because you spend all your money on cigarettes. No breaking down this time.

Thanks for the hit and run "so have you got a boyfriend yet?" after telling me all about my (younger) cousins and their relationships. I really needed an excuse to dive headfirst into a tub of ice cream.

Back when I was just a kid (undergraduate), my cousins started getting married. My various relatives started with the, “So when are YOU getting married?” questions. It was very irritating because I was kinda between relationships at the time (okay, I wasn't dating ANYONE and was a bit depressed about it).

Fast forward about a couple of years... My cousins were now all getting divorced in very nasty ways. THEN I got the, “Well, maybe it was good that you waited, Doug...” statements.

So don't worry, it will eventually work out.

And now for something completely different...

Dear In-Laws,

I owe you an apology. I feel very, very spoiled. Thank you for the lovely necklace, the shopping spree at Barnes & Noble, AND not asking us about every single detail when we got home. You even made a few comments that showed you know me a little bit. What a wonderful surprise!

Sincerely,
Starla
