    Dear Friend of Friend:

    If you spent half the time writing that you spend posting pithy statements on Facebook about writing, you'd have a book by now.

    Love,
    Gay Panda

    GOTD:

    Open letter to Microsoft.

    Dear Microsoft,

    Your stupid system forces updates on my computer about once a week when I shut it down. That would be fine if your updates actually IMPROVED the running of the computer instead of DEGRADING the performance.

    If just once, you could come out with an operating system or update that actually improved the performance of my computer, that would be spiffy.

    You can change automatic updates to not allow them to download but only notify.

    I was enjoying some post-workout smoked salmon and glanced at the package. "Product contains fish."

    I should f---ing hope so.

    When I went to get a Mother's Day card, 2/3 of the display was devoted to cards for your wife, sister, daughter, aunt, stepmother, 3rd cousin twice removed, etc. I had a hard time finding a good Mother's Day card for MY MOTHER.

    Go on, give it a go. Or, don't complain when I wash my hands in the sink and splash mud in the mugs you dumped there.

    I was just laughing at a bottle of milk the other day. It literally had an ingredient list ("Ingredients: Milk") and then a warning ("Contains Milk") just below it. Oh crap, I was going to buy this milk until I realized it contains milk!

    Oh, it's a work computer. That just sucks.
