Dear World, Knock it Off

How on earth is it Friday, and I haven’t posted anything since Monday?  I set out this week to get back in my blogging groove, to post regularly, to go back to commenting and visiting forums and such, and yet, here it is Friday and I’ve done….none of that. Sheesh, I’m such a bad blogger. But soon, I hope to get past my little writer’s block and be back in full force. Life just keeps getting in the way, ya know?

Speaking of life getting in the way, I’ve got some words for the world, so I’m thinking it’s time for some more letters from me to the universe.


Dear Craigslist,

Once upon a time, you were a place to find a new apartment or other abode to live in. A haven for those who didn’t quite know where else to look. However, my current experience is that you are filled with scammers almost exclusively. I’ve now been the recipient of 4 attempted scams, and I’m losing all faith in you. Please, please, I just want a new place to live…

Completely fed up with Nigerian scams in all their forms,


Dear I-5,

Since N.C. took this new contract job, I’ve been forced to endure rush hour on your roads. Um, you kind of blow. Between the 30 minutes it takes me just to get on the freeway, to the parking lot that greets me once I arrive, I’m really missing my old commute along I-15. And that’s saying something,

Seriously people, just drive,


Dear AT&T and my Razr cell phone,

I seriously don’t know what is up with the freakiness that you two have conspired to present in my cell phone life. AT&T, do you have any idea how often I drop calls with you? How often I have zero bars? And then Razr, I know you think this little trick you’ve picked up lately is cool. That you find it endlessly entertaining to shut yourself off completely whenever I lose bars. But honestly, it’s the most annoying thing ever. In the middle of important phone calls, boom, the phone goes off. I’m doing a lot of apologizing these days to the people on the other end of the call, and I wish that weren’t the case.

Anxiously awaiting the end of my 2 year contract to move over to Verizon,


Dear TV,

Thank you so much for being my partner in relaxation. It’s so much easier to decompress after a hard day when you’ve got Michael Westen or Gregory House or Chuck Bartowski to keep you entertained.

Oh how I hated my Razr! The service I had (and still have) with T-Mobile was great… the phone, though, was crap. I thought it was SO cool when I bought it because it was bright pink and my first real, non-parent-purchased phone. Then I discovered the horrors of the Razr as time went on. Poor sound quality, random shut-offs, lots of little stuff that added up to one big annoyance. I was so thrilled when my contract was up and it was time for me to upgrade.

I have also used Craigslist for apartment hunting and lately it’s been sucking too. 45 minutes going through spam e-mails for one good one. Waste.

HOLY CRAP! Just as I got to the AT&T letter, a commercial came on saying “more bars in more places. That’s what you can expect from AT&T…” 🙂

Oh, and don’t get me started on Craigslist. A couple of months ago when I was desperately searching for a job, allll I could find were spammy ones. I would be like
“omg, that would be sooo perfect!” spam.
“This sounds cool!” spam.
“Well, this one is alright I guess…” spam.
“Ugh, this one sounds like it blows, but it’s…SOMETHING I guess. No spammer would put such a horrible job description, right?” freaking spam!
Apparently no one in this city even USES craigslist for job postings, because every single one I found was fake.
