Letters to the world

Since I’m still suffering a bit from writer’s block (or maybe I’m just lazy, who knows?), I’m stealing an idea from inspired by two of my favorite blogs, SoMi and Clever Girl Goes Blog. I love reading their letters, and today felt like I had a few inside my brain that should come out.

Dear Left Contact,

Why for the love of all that is holy must you always be problematic? Your right companion doesn’t act up like this. I really wish you’d stop with the itching and watering and blurring and all. The eye doctor says there’s nothing wrong with you, so knock it off.

Wishing I could see,


Dear Brain,

Would it be possible for you to not be so scattered? I’ve kind of got lots of work to do, and your short attention span and flightiness isn’t helping my cause. I know you’d like to still be on vacation, I would too, but we had to come back to work over a week ago. It’s time to buckle down.

Seriously needing to be productive,


Dear Sirius,

Please stop being broken. I can’t handle local radio anymore and I’ve listened to every cd in the car at least a thousand times (at LEAST). I love you too much to go without you for much longer.

Desperately wanting to get away from morning radio dj’s,


Dear New TV,

I love you. You are shiny and lovely and I can actually read the text when we play video games. Please always love me back.

Hopelessly devoted to you


Dear Wii Fit,

You rock. Even if I yell at my trainer (what? she can be a bitch when she makes me do some of those moves!), I am entranced by you. Even when you tell me I haven’t lost weight, I am enamored.  Now if only I could do better on the balance games.

Enjoying some light fitness,


Dear Anxiety,

Knock it off. Everything will be fine. You’re getting worked up for no reason (as usual).

I’m fine, I swear,


Dear Readers,

Have I mentioned how much I love you guys? Seriously, nothing brightens my day more than comments and knowing that there are people out there reading my little corner of the interwebs. I’m trying to get better about replying to comments, I promise (the holidays set me back a little in my diligence there), but I swear, everyone one of your comments is like a little present to me. A present that I will name George, and I will hug him, and pet him, and squeeze him.*

So since it’s De-lurking Week (apparently I was misinformed the other day, it’s a whole week, not just a day!) please come out and say hi if you haven’t already!

Yours forever and ever (or as long as you’ll read me),

P.S. *who knows what this is from? It’s one of my favorites!

Was it Animaniacs?

Know what I love about your letters? You mixed the bad with the good. I could learn a thing or two from you for next time!

It’s the Abominable Snowman character from the Bugs Bunny and Daffy cartoon. Based of course on Lennie from Of Mice and Men. Just without the usual depressing Steinbeck ending.

Belle: she may have been on Animaniacs, but I think she was first in Tiny Toon Adventures and then Pinky, (Elmyra,) and the Brain 🙂

Just found you today, so not technically a lurker, but since I like to lurk for a while I’m counting myself anyway.

I loved these letters. I laughed and laughed at the wii fit one. Too funny.

Wii Fit! Woo hoo! Reminds me that I haven’t done it in a while. I hate when you step on and it says in that judgmental tone: “Oh.”

De-lurking… (not so much a lurker, most times, I just don’t have too much to say…)

Great Post!
