Today's grumble

mail box, originally uploaded by TommyOshima.

Do any of you tune in and ask yourselves "Hmm I wonder what Drewzel is going to complain about today?" Part of me sort of feels compelled to apologise for being such a curmudgeon, but nah. Blogland is a generally happy place, but still, it isn't all fairies at the bottom of the garden (I myself have slugs there.)

So, in direct contrast to last night's post, you know what's been getting me down lately? E-mail. I hate it. I know it's fast and handy and blah blah blah, but oh my dog, after dealing with all the (often dumb) emails I get at work all day, the last thing I want to do in my leisure time is open my gmail. So I will apologise right now if you've sent me something and I haven't responded or you're feeling unloved or whatever. But oh! how I hate it...such a chore. I get my bills via email now, so that's no reason to want to check my messages in a hurry either. And if you want to write me a lurve letter, put it in teh snail mail (thanks Hubert) ...because electronic doesn't cut it for me.

I'm certainly not advocating we do away with e-mail and go back to telegrams and carrier pigeons... but I must admit, these days, I feel somewhat over communicated. Leave me be for a while world, and that way I can get some stitching done.


  1. I like the quickness of email, but given the option I'd really prefer to correspond via snail mail. I love handwritten letters (sending them and receiving them).

    I just read "84, Charing Cross Road" last night and it made me pine for getting "real" mail. If you haven't read it, I finished it in about an hour's time -- a very quick read.

  2. I have always meant to read that one Glenda, must add it to my list of "to dos".


Oh hello! I do like a wee comment, that way I know you exist!
Sorry I had to turn the ANNOYING word verification back on, but I've been getting too much spam lately. :(
