You are here

Open letters

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.

Love, Cat

eta: Dear Kuzu, from what I can tell, the archive does not have any "snapshots" from Dec., so I wouldn't be able to find any choice posts/threads from that lost time?

Dear Allychristine,

Though I don't fully understand the reasons, the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine seems to only make content available after it is about six months old. So, while I suspect they actually did crawl vegweb sometime during Dec 16th - Jan 8th, those snapshots probably won't be available for a while. :-\

Dear yabbitgirl, AC, and anyone else interested,

The best way to restore content is to get a copy of the most recent backup made before the posts disappeared. Considering that someone had a backup of Dec 16th, exactly one day before the first of the recent "badware-related activity" reports, I'm guessing backups are done fairly frequently, so there probably is one from very close to Jan 8th. Search engine caches may also be useful, but keep in mind that they are gradually being updated to match the new (or lack of) content, which means any searching is best done promptly. Though, like I said, 5~6 months from now some of the missing content may appear on the Internet Archive.

Regarding recipes in particular, I found a handful in google's cache and put them here.

Dear Anyone who Has the Time and Inclination.
OK, go back to about page 702 of this thread. See my post with the dancing mushrooms? If you click on that emoticon thing, it will take you to the site where I found it. Only I can't find it again and I've looked all over the shop. If ANYone tracks it down, please tell me what category it's in on that page.
Please.

Dear(?) Post Office Employees,
I have to come see you again today, and believe me, I'm not happy about it.  So hows about if you refrain from talking to me like I'm stupid this time?  Because guess what, I'm not.  Ok, so you know more about the passport application process than I do, but that doesn't make me an idiot.  I swear, if you are rude to me again I will find a much more uncomfortable way for you to process my application.

Sincerely,
PG

Dear Magic Thread,
It worked!  Thanks!

Dear PG,
Know them well. Retreat into the Himalayas of your soul. Think Vanessa Redgrave. Or Dame Judy Dench. Straighten  your back, lift your chin and remember--you're superior to them because, hey, they work in the post office. You are a real person. You can see over the regulations, and they obviously can't.
Speak clearly and dis-tinct-ly, after all you are dealing with government idiots.
Been there,
YG

Dear weather,
If you stopped switching back and forth between 40 degrees and 80 degrees we would probably be much better friends. I don't so much like going to sleep in one thing and waking up freezing cold. Just stay the same so I don't get confused.

Sarah,
Go to work, you should've left already. You don't even have shoes on yet. Slacker.

Dear Dr J,
Hey, total thanks and praise for helping me return the ebook that didn't work. Now can you lend me some smarts so I learn how to use the Wifi thing?
It's been really great having you around today. We need to spend more time together.
Most people think you're like so serious and stuff and would never believe how much fun you are.
(Oh, and can you convince the physiotherapist to work with me on the scheduling appointments thing? If I can't fit it around classes, I won't be able to pay for it, so you might mention that. I realise he doesn't listen to you well, but you have more clout than I do with him.)

And thanks for continuing to turn good students my way.
Love,
YG

Dear people(?) who wrote the HIPA laws,

Thank you for making it take a month for staff at the nursing home MIL lives at align the situation so they could "remind" her to make an appointment in front of me so I could get my hands on the referal to get it done.  She looked totally baffled when they asked her if she had ever made the appointment she was supposed to have made a MONTH ago.  She has no short term memory and medical professionals are not allowed to tell us what is going on so we have to "rely" on her. 

DIL who goes with MIL to appointments so someone knows what is going on with her

Dear fucktards buying politicians,

I don't care if you buy your politicians through policy, through threats, and/or through multi-million dollar contributions. I only have one thing to say to you and you can quote me:

Fuck you. You all are fucking pathetic fucks.

Fuck you,
Go fuck yourself,
Josh

Dear Gary,

it was a week ago today that we parted ways.  I miss you so much and keep talking to you and thinking I see you  out of the corner of my eye.  I still can't believe that you left me and you're never coming back.

Love you always,
the big person who you allowed to live in your house (and who you loved slightly more than the other big person)

Dear Shell,
I did this with Saul. I would also hear him digging around in his litterbox for weeks after the litterbox was no longer there.
I think it's their way of watching over us for those first few weeks.
Srsly.

Dear Shell,

I'm so sorry about Gary.  I lost my Nelson over 4 years ago and sometimes, out of the corner of my eye, I still see him sitting on my bed.

Dear Amazon,
Fuck you. I returned my book, which cost me 170 dollars, still in shrink wrap and 2 days after it arrived. There is no reason why you should keep 100 of that. I returned it to save money, not cost me more money. I could have sold it for far more than that. ASSHOLES.
