In which I sound like an old biddy.

I am offended by e-mail thank yous.

There! I said it!

It's true. If I go to the trouble to do something noble and generous and three-dimensional, I don't think it's too much to ask that you spend two minutes and a stamp and send me a damn note. In the mail. Via the U.S. Postal Service.

Now, like all good biddies, I have exceptions. Like, if you're dead. Or if I was there when you opened the gift.

But other than that? If my grandma continued to hand write thank yous well after she was completely blind, I think you can manage, too.

In other news ... I'm starting to feel better, but this fever has obviously gone to my brain.

What about blog comment thank yous?

Dear Cha Cha,

Thank you for my birthday gift. It is neat. I like it a lot. It will bring me hours and hours of enjoyment.
