so i wrote you a letter

Thursday, February 12, 2009

dear blogger platform,

i appreciate you, really i do. hell, you are a google product - no other blogger platform can say they are part of that impressive family tree. i really like the followers of this blog thing too. see, i ever added it over there to the right.

but i have one small wish as a user. can you please allow me to respond to my comments individually? PLEASE? i go to all of my friends blogs who use wordpress and i'm jealous of their easy comment response system right under the actual comment!

let's make this happen.

love,

alexa


dear twitter,

since i'm writing to you i figured i should keep each paragraph under 140 characters. got maintain the rules.

i think it's really cool that someone has put together the twestival charity event and that we are having one in cleveland - tonight!

i like helping charity, i like consuming beer and pizza at the harry buffalo downtown, and i like my twitter friends. oh, the warm fuzzies.

i hope that more people come and participate in @twestival_cle tonight at 6pm with me - it's only $15 at the door.

see you tonight,

@clevelandsaplum




dear grapefruit,

somehow my mom has talked me into starting your diet on monday. what was i thinking?

i don't even like you and your sour taste.

but i'll drink/eat you if it'll help me lose 20lbs before i go to NYC in march.

skeptically yours,

alexa



dear valentine's day,

normally you don't bother me, you're just yet another day on the calendar that i don't receive a dozen red roses from my imaginary boyfriend.

but this year you had to go and really flaunt yourself by falling on a friggin' saturday. ooooooo look at you all dolled up for a saturday night out.

saturday nights are my night to go out and have fun with my friends but this saturday because it's V-day all of my friends will be on hot dates. maybe next year i'll like you a little more.

slightly bitter, yet optimistic,

sexy lexy

  3. Amen to the individual comment section! Come one blogger, DO SOMETHING!

    Would it put a smile on your face if I sent you a tweet on Saturday saying I <3 you?

  6. okay...seriously. That just brightened up my afternoon. Can you write me a letter? Those are awesome. Though I'm a little scared for you with the grapefruits...

  7. this was really cute. good luck with those grapefruits. i'm too scared to try anything that demanding of me. and a comment section on blogger would be seriously kick ass. agreed.

  8. if it makes you feel any better? i don't love the responding to each comment individually thing, personallly. i like how other people do it, but it's tricky for me to do it and have it be any quicker than the other way.

    so there's that.

  9. I like the idea of individual comments too but sometimes I don't have time to comment on comments. Work and life seem to get in the way

  10. Friendly little tip: grapefruit does bad things to the effects of birth control. Not sure what you level of concern is on that one, but if there's any, I'd stay away.

    ReplyDelete
  11. The comment thing is one of the big reasons why I jumped ship from Blogger to Wordpress. I have yet to look back.

    -hug- Hope you still find a way to enjoy Vday.

  12. i would have gone to the twestival event in la tonight, but alas it's twiistup instead. have fun tweeting it up for water! :)

    ReplyDelete
  13. Oh I must say I love wordpress so much more than blogger. Though I haven't updated my theme to have the threaded comments yet.

    ReplyDelete
  14. Amen to the first letter. The tweet festival sounds fun!!

  15. ARGH! The Valentines Day. Yes on a Saturday. Yes just after I broke up with my SO that I had an amazing house with, that in case you haven't noticed, is a terrible market to try and sell said house. I've renamed the day "stab me in the eye with sharp pointy sticks" Day. /endrant

  16. I totally agree with you about Blogger and replying to comments individually. So insanely stupid that we can't. WTF???

    ReplyDelete
  17. Dear Blogger - Couldn't agree more!
    Dear Twitter - I'm still avoiding you!
    Dear Grapefruit - Be nice to Alexa!
    Love,
    Nilsa

  18. Whoops, forgot one!
    Dear Valentine's Day = V-Day = Vagina Day = Pussy Day. That's right, I think you're a pussy. No one likes you. Why can't you just go away?
    Yours,
    Nilsa

  19. I wanna go to a tweet festival :(

    ReplyDelete
  20. so i just went to the site and realized they had one in my city last night. i am pissed.

  21. I also want the individual comment section. I grow tired of scrolling up and down the lists of comments while I comment, and it sometimes discourages me from commenting to my comments.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Just another reason why Wordpress is more wonderful. ;)

    Also, I feel the same way about Valentine's. I'm working Saturday. It won't be exciting.

  23. About your grapefruit aversion:

    1. If you're going to eat them, pink grapefruits are definitely the way to go.

    2. Peel/eat them like an orange -- it's so much easier than cutting in half and dealing with all the little sections.

    3. Remind yourself that they're rich in antioxidants, helping you look young longer while de-toxing your system from all the vino we drink ;)

    4. Pair with multiple cups of green tea (more antioxidants and a healthy dose of caffeine) if you like.

    xo,
    Kelly

  24. oh yeah totally want the comment section in blogger. that would be EXTRA nice.

  25. Grapefruits. I try to love them, I do... My mom herself said "I lost SO MUCH WEIGHT EATING GRAPEFRUIT" (caps emphasis, hers) but I just can't like it!

    Try lifting a bit of weights if you can. It helps burn fat while you're resting. F the grape(butt)fruit.

    Love the notes.

  26. Tell Valentine's Day to SUCKIT!

    At least thats what I'm hoping happens on Valentines Day night.

    Hey-O!

  27. I agree with Chris.

    Wordpress >>> Blogger.

    ReplyDelete
  28. Deutlich said it. I HATE being on blogger. Ugh.

    ReplyDelete
  29. I definitely wish blogger had the individual comments. The only reason I'm staying with it is because customizing is easier.

    ReplyDelete
  30. You're doing the grapefruit diet? OMG. Please tell me how it goes.

    And I loved SO@24's boob scarf reference. LOL.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I didn't realize you couldn't respond to individual comments in blogger - weird.

    I used to think grapefruits were too sour, but I love the pink ones now!

    ReplyDelete
  32. When they make grapefruit Doritos, I'll consider that diet.
