Dear Flickr - Thanks for making it more difficult to post pictures, as well as more difficult to understand anything related to photos that I have uploaded onto your site. I sure hope you spent a lot of money and staff time on this effort, 'cause it used to be pretty easy to use Flickr, and now it's just plain old confusing. Surely some great techno-minds got paid big bucks for the redesign, and it will be worth it if they are accidentally on purpose felled by some mysterious malady. Have a nice day.
Dear Blogger - Thanks also to you for the new editor, which is equally confusing. I have longed for something like this so I can spend inordinate amounts of time just trying to figure out how to get started. You and the people at Flickr should go out on a date sometime, as I think you have lots in common. A match made in heaven. Oh, and have a nice day.
Dear Woman in Front of Me at Starbucks Yesterday - Oh for God's sake, either use your stupid Bluetooth or place your order! Don't make all of us - including the person taking orders - wait while you tell the person you are talking to, "Oh just a minute - apparently this person needs to know what I want NOW or she will die." Next time you have to perform brain surgery via phone, wait until afterwards to get a coffee. And have a nice day.
Dear Goodreads - Why in the name of a small black dog named Pete do you have me listed as living in Folcroft, PA? I edited my profile, but being that I had no idea there was a place known as Folcroft, PA, I am certain that I didn't enter that info originally. I am puzzled, but am hoping that the next time I check, you'll have let me stay here. Thanks, and have a nice day.
Dear Woman in the Hummer and Taxi Driver Behind Her - Well, if either of you had been paying attention rather than chatting on your cell phones this morning, perhaps the accident wouldn't have happened. But since it did, thank you for making me smile on my way to work this a.m. I had a nice day.
Dear Knitters - Be sure to check in at Kim's website during the week, to vote for this year's Knitter's Hunk. Nominations are closed, and voting started this past Monday, but we're only at the end of the first round of voting. It's really fun, and interesting to see who has been nominated. (I didn't get my act together to nominate anyone this year, but there are still plenty of people who I am more than happy to vote for!)
That's it for now.
And please - have a nice day. ;-)
