Friday Letters

I've written a few Friday Letters to recap my week, say what's on my mind, and take the opportunity to offer a thank you or two. Let's open the mail...

Dear IRS,

I'm done. Please send money.


Dear Mainframe Whitetails,

Thank you for giving Justin a paid internship this summer! This will be a terrific opportunity for him to put everything he's learned as a Conservation and Wildlife Management major into practice, and hopefully one more step along the road to a full-time job in his field in the near(ish) future. Your offer lifted a great weight off his shoulders, so I'm happy that he is now a bit more pleasant to be around and will only be a few hours away this summer!

Dear Friends on Facebook,

Here is a list of things I don't need to know (but you told me about this week):
You slept through the alarm and are now an hour late to work (but have time to post on facebook.)
You have pink eye.
Your child has pink eye.
You are afraid your dog may get pink eye.
The post office is out of Janis Joplin stamps.
Your dog ate cat poop.


Dear Mary,

In the spirit of not wanting to spend time with one more social media thing, I have resisted Instagram so far (despite your gentle peer pressure!) Can you please reassure me that there are no photos of pink eye and cat poop on Instagram? I may be leaving Facebook in the near future!


  1. Oh join instagram, I'll be your buddy :) I am not on fb so I don't see that stuff. yay for the summer internship! and this year we owed the irs so no money for us :(

  2. I'm a fan of Instagram because there are few words and no pink eye!

  3. My Facebook feed has been full of people reporting that they have the stomach bug. Ugh.

  4. Dear Bonny,
    Mary talked me into Instagram. So far, no pink eye. But I can't say that I'm a fan. (In fact, I'm rapidly turning into a deadbeat Instagram-er.) Congratulations to Justin! Such wonderful news. :-)
    TGIF --

  5. oh man, I'm a deadbeat! but still not on FB and still a huge fan of IG (hey, my mom got an account this past weekend...and shared a photo of shrimp! yeah, no cat poop and no pink eye ;-) happy for Justin (and you) about the internship - but still waiting for Mathematicians Gone Wild!


Thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment! :-)
