Well, the first step to having a problem is admitting that you have a problem. Second step is to seek treatment. I'm now being treated for what my "doctor" calls punctuatilis. You may otherwise know it by its more descriptive description (ha!): abuse of punctuation. Apparently a side effect of being treated is superflous redundancy!
My doctor's name is Dr. Finnegan Feelgood. I found him on kijiji and although his credentials are printed on the back of a KFC advertisement, I'm convinced they're legit. BECAUSE THEY'RE LAMINATED. No one bogus is going to laminate forged documentation—that's crazy! I'm on a strict drug regimen of skittles, cherry cola bottles, and chewy frogs to cure my condition and it works for the most part. I don't think I'll ever really be cured because let's FACE it, punctuation abuse IS kind; of, awesome, but I seem to be doing a lot better. Look ma, no comma abuse!!
Also, does anyone have any tips for using rubber stamps? I can never get the image to imprint evenly. Someone must have cast a rubber stamp curse on me. There is no other explanation.
I actually sent this letter to Julie back in August but I'm only getting around to posting it now. How is it already mid-September?! Julie, are you speeding up time again?!

Forever Young Adult hosted Pride and Prejudice Week this week, which was P&P all week long. I'll leave you with my favourite of this week's posts, titled "Adaptation Deathmatch" in which the 1995 mini-series and the 2005 movie duke it out for adaptation supremacy. I know I'm in the minority on this one—and that's okay, we can agree to disagree—but I'm 100% for Matthew MacFadyen. If you want to battle it out in an epic thumb war, I'm game. But I should warn you, I'm supremely high on sugar.
Have a great week everyone.
Yes, my dear, I control time! I'm THAT powerful. Mwahaha!ReplyDelete
I started writing you a letter this morning! And it will be a REEEEAAAAAAAAALLLLLY long one this time! At least 2 pages. ;)Delete
(I think I'm on #4 so far, but at the end I might start writing really small because I only have 20 sides of paper to use for your letter this time.)
I KNEW IT! I KNEW IT! Oh Great Julie, controller of time: can you take me back to October 12, 2002? I ate a really great cupcake that day and...I'd like to eat it again.Delete
At least two pages?! You shouldn't have. Nevertheless, YAY!
On October 12, 2002 I was dating Nicolas... I'm not sure I want to go back! :/ But I can take YOU back - however, please remember that we weren't penpals then so is a good cupcake really worth it?!Delete
Hmmm... I see your point. How about you take me back to October 12, 2002, I'll share my life-changing cupcake with you, and then you can take us to a future date of your choosing. You know, a future date where we've grown old and grey together and are being gluttons on sushi?Delete
Awww! Great idea. Eating sushi with Laura at the nursing home! Sweet.Delete
I'm really sorry about your rubber stamp curse. That sounds dreadful.ReplyDelete
It IS dreadful. Rubber stamps and I are never to be friends. :(Delete
I love the mail you sent out and the mail you get.ReplyDelete
Look so very net cool fun looking all the time.
I ALWAYS trust people named Feelgood, especially if their first name is Finnegan! But really, that's your treatment? Man, that guy is harsh. He's not taking any chances to get your problem under control!ReplyDelete
I'm so with you on Matthew MacFayden. I saw him in another film recently, Death At a Funeral, that was hilarious (look for the British version, not the annoying one with Zoe Saldana!). Seriously, never get tired of seeing him/hearing him speak.....
Dr. FFG said something about how the sugar shakes are a vital part of my treatment. It's harsh, but effective. I think. I dunno. Is the room supposed to spin like this....? Do you want me to pass your number to Finnegan?Delete
I haven't seen Death at a Funeral before! That's it! I'm going to, ahem, "legally" acquire it from the internet right this second. His voice is like silk, so smooth!
Eeee things for meeee!! And lady astronauts too, no less. My childhood self would take that as a sign to get really good at math and work for NASA.ReplyDelete
That's actually EXACTLY what I was trying to say with that envelope. Get good at math and work for NASA! Looks your envelope decoder ring is bang-on! Though there was a bit about finding alien life and proving that they love mail too...do you have your decoder ring set to F? Mine is set to F.Delete
On a serious note though, lady astronauts are totally awesome.
Firstly, How in the heck is it September already?!?!?! I think we may be caught in a time warp.ReplyDelete
Secondly, I don't know if I could ever choose between the 1995 version and the 2005 version!!! I love them both! Actually I love all of the Jane Austen representations... But the 1995 P&P started my love affair!
*Laura stands up*Delete
You bring your knees in tight.
But it's the pelvic thrust
That really drives you insane.
Let's do the time-warp again!!!!
Let's do the time-warp again!!!!
*Laura sits down* YAY! :)
I love to look at your mail, it's always so beautiful! And I'm glad to know you looked for a "specialist", all those skittles should make you feel better.ReplyDelete
I've got lots of skittles Penny, do you need "treatment" too? I can share. You should never deny yourself "treatment."Delete
Hiya Laura! That's indeed a strict drug regimen! Oh? And it's even EFFECTIVE?! LOL I should consult a Dr. Feelgood when I'm not feeling so well. Do chewy frogs taste good? I can tell you that grasshoppers taste heavenly! I ate the one I found on my clothline the other day. (http://theperfectmagni.blogspot.com/2012/09/hi-world-i-just-moved-my-things-into-my.html) Seriously, Laura, I must thank you for making me laugh when I read your posts. You're a natural!ReplyDelete
