Dear So and So

Dear So and So...

Dear Mud,

I understand that you are a part of the ending of winter (thank heavens for that), but really, do you have to be everywhere??? OMG! Indy and I walked to the post office yesterday and when we got home our boots were caked, caked in you. Yes, I know, we didn't have to walk through the courtyard, but taking the sidewalk would have added at least 5 whole minutes to our walk each way, and in case you forgot, it's still bloody cold out there and who wants to be out there 10 minutes longer than they have to? Not me, I tell you. If it's going to be cold, could you just freeze up a little and not be quite so mushy? Maybe you can push all that water a little further down and dry out a bit? I'd appreciate it ever so much.


Dear AFN schedule,

The Olympics are on and there are lots and lots of events! What? You knew? Oh, so the decision to air only skeleton races and races and cross country skiing is on purpose? WHY? You know we're all really only interested in figure skating (though I find curling oddly fascinating), so do you think you could perhaps air some? I'd really appreciate it. It's not often I can indulge in hours of figure skating, and every 4 years I have 2 weeks to pretend that I could have been a contender if I'd only tried (or, you know, learned how to ice skate as a child, but whatever). Could you help me out here?

Skating in my dreams,

Dear library,

Not having book 2 of a 5 book series in any of the European libraries sucks. Yes, I love the fact that I can request a book from any library and have it within a few days, but when I want to read a series and you lack one of the books, it really irks me. Seriously, how can you have books 1,3,4 and 5 but not book 2? HOW???? Now I have to order book 2 from Amazon (thank goodness for the used section) and then I'll be stuck with book 2. Unless I'm feeling incredibly gracious and donate book 2 to the library system to keep some other poor reader from running into the same problem.

Waiting impatiently to read,

Dear Kat,

Thanks so much for making Friday one of the best days in blogland and for keeping me wildly entertained with stories of living in England. Smooches and pancake days!

Your fellow military spouse in a foreign land,

Dear readers,

If you like Dear So and So and have something to get off your chest, join the fun and link up over at Kat's place. You won't be sorry.

ah, AFN...I remember those days...even if they were 20 years ago! It was, honestly, the only way we could keep up back then with what was going on back home. Still, we arrived stateside after three years without a clue! lol.

Sarah said...

I wish we got AFN Freedom. That's where all the good programming is - including figure skating.

Sarah said...

Oh, ps - I saw you walking on post yesterday. I tried to wave, but John went by too quickly.

Yes..yes...and yes on the figure skating! I can not stand to watch the curling but Mr. M is fascinated with it. It's actually funny to watch him watch curling because like football he tries to steer the little puck thingy(what is that thing called?)

Have a fab weekend and ttys!

But mud means jumping in muddy puddles! And extra laundry for mummy's who have little boys that like to jump in muddy puddles *sigh*

Miss Angie said...

You know, I think they need a library like Netflix... Where you can order the books online and have them delivered without having to buy them? Not to be lazy, just in case the library doesn't have what you want... I don't know, might be a bad idea because I LOVE Libraries... I don't want to see them die.

Yay for Winter ending!

I have written letters like this in my head to the post office system many times! I literally laughed out loud at your library post and donating the book #2, too funny.

Amanda said...

My husband and our 8-year-old love the curling. It's more fun for me to watch them watch the curling than to watch the curling itself. And funner still to write that sentence! :p

I love watching the Olympic ski jumping.

Do you have the possibility to watch German TV?
I mean the commentators would be German but at least you would get to watch it...

btw: I caved in and did the dishes myself. :)

Kat said...

I was just sitting here watching the Great Britain women's curling match against Germany and I literally had my head cocked sideways. I don't get it and yet, I couldn't change the channel. It is now 1am and I am going to watch Amy Williams on Skeleton. Holy crap....I am being sucked IN!

Crazy Shenanigans said...

I'd be so disappointed if they weren't showing all the events. I love the Olympics.

I know what you mean about the mud, it's everywhere over here right now.

I'm brand new here...I came over from Kat's after leaving a comment there suggesting we contributors try something go to the link just previous to our own and leaving a comment to let them know we've come by to visit. Well, YOU were just before ME! So here I am and I enjoyed my visit here very much!! I think Kat's "Dear So-and-So" is great. I loved reading your 'letters', too. Have a great weekend!
